Abstract

This article seeks to analyse political and social processes which allow the formation, the development and the reproduction of local élite in Corsica during the French Third Republic. This élite is principally composed of 'notables' and characterized by the generalization of clientelistic practices. This form of political domination is described in the first part of the article, from aspects of organization and legitimation. The second part examines the mode in which such domination of the 'notables' persists in a context of political modernization (development of political parties, bureaucratization rationalization of public action). This persistence results of adaptative strategies of 'notables', which use the new institutions of modern State to reproduce their political power. This phenomena don't result of reproduction of traditional behaviours. It allows the politicization of rural populations of Corsica, through learning new political categories (such ideologies, partisanship identification) and using the State institutions. Legitimatization of the State, in this case, depends on the practical use of public resources, and not on interiorization of dominant categories of public legitimacy.
