The rise of the Gulag : intellectual origins of Leninism by Alain Besançon( Book )

57 editions published between 1977 and 1998 in 7 languages and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le régime soviétique, qui dure depuis soixante ans, est-il une nouveauté absolue sur la terre ? Comment l'idéologie léniniste, qui le constitue, peut-elle être le tout ; car là où elle règne, elle donne sa forme à toute chose ; et le rien, car elle peut être résumée en quelques lignes auxquelles personne ne croit ? Ces questions et quelques autres sont à l'origine de ce livre.Au terme, Lénine apparaît moins comme un inventeur que comme le vivant support d'une systématique qui le dépasse, mais qui agit à travers lui impersonnellement avec une cohérence et une logique irréfragables. La démonstration qu'en donne Alain Besançon est la première du genre

A century of horrors : communism, Nazism, and the uniqueness of the shoah by Alain Besançon( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in French and English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twentieth century bears the indelible imprint of both communism and Nazism. Today, it sometimes seems as if the former is all but forgotten, at least among Western elites, while our cultural memory of the latter is an inextinguishable fire. This asymmetry calls out for an explanation, argues the French political thinker Alain Besancon." "In examining the horror and destruction caused by both of these terrible ideologies, Besancon finds that recourse to theology is necessary if we are to achieve even feeble illumination. He also explains why, even with the full knowledge of the extent of communism's crimes, the uniqueness of the Shoah ought to be accepted without reservation."--Jacket
