    In 1979, a surprising article of Y. Lacoste's appeared, the objective of which was to unearth the last work of Vidal de la Blache: La France de l'Est (Lorraine-Alsace) (1917). This article attempts to make a more profound analysis of one of the questions raised in Lacoste's article: What role did political geography play in the French Vidal de la Blache School of thought? Many of the works and actions of Vidal's disciples demonstrate a special interest in political geography, with the momentaneous abandonment of the descriptive model, so characteristic of French regional geography. The truly geo-political elements of this work have been extracted, in an effort to demonstrate that one aspect of the Vidalian School has long been forgotten - the aspect of political geography. -from English summary
