French Revolution by François Furet ( Book )

Peut-on comprendre la Révolution française sans faire la critique des tabous et des mythes qu'elle a engendrés ? Tel est le défi de ce livre qui continue a susciter débats et polémiques.

The passing of an illusion : the idea of communism in the twentieth century by François Furet ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The late Francois Furet was acknowledged as this century's preeminent historian of the French Revolution. But several years before his untimely death, he turned his attention to the consequences and aftermath of another critical revolution in the history of the modern world - the Communist revolution. The result, Le passe d'une illusion, was published initially in France, where it was critically acclaimed and went on to be a bestseller. Not surprisingly, it also became a catalyst for discussion and controversy on both sides of the Atlantic. Now available in English, The Passing of an Illusion can be understood, certainly, as a study of Communism but also as a history of the myth of Communism as it was perpetuated by its admirers." "Furet illuminates how the support for Communism and its embodiment, the Soviet Union, became virtually synonymous with "anti-Fascism" and how this intellectually strategic arrangement reverberated through the West."--Jacket

Les auteurs de ce magnifique ouvrage illustré en deux tomes ont profondément "repensé" la Révolution française en ce qui concerne les structures économiques et sociales de l'ancien régime. Leur texte clair, agrémenté d'une abondante et très riche illustration (iconographie d'époque, en noir et blanc surtout), tient compte des travaux récents (avant 1965) et présente une image de la Révolution plus objective que celle des générations précédentes.

Fascism and communism by François Furet ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his major work on communism, the international bestseller The Passing of an Illusion, the eminent French historian Francois Furet devoted a lengthy footnote to German historian Ernst Nolte's interpretation of fascism. Nolte responded, a correspondence ensued, and the result was the remarkable exchange presented in this volume. Fascism and Communism offers readers the rare opportunity to witness and learn from a confrontation between two of the world's most distinguished historians over one of the most serious subjects of our time. Each from a different perspective, Furet and Nolte offer compelling arguments for the common genealogy of these two ideologies as well as reasons for the intellectual community's rejection of this explosive thesis throughout the twentieth century. This discussion leads to a deeper understanding of the nature of totalitarianism as well as the trajectory and interpretation of modern European history."--BOOK JACKET
