The Jews : history, memory, and the present by Pierre Vidal-Naquet( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Vidal-Naquet, internationally celebrated author of Assassins of Memory: Essays on the Denial of the Holocaust, here takes readers on a fascinating journey through key phases of Jewish history over more than two millennia. Drawing on a vast reservoir of historical knowledge, Vidal-Naquet unravels a series of myths and ideologies that have become entangled with Jewish history over the centuries. The Jews covers subjects as deep in the past as the Jewish encounter with Hellenization in the second century B.C.E., and as current as modern-day Israeli-Palestinian relations. The Jews opens in the classical period, looking in particular at the work of Flavius Josephus, who wrote the original account of the events at Masada. Resisting the powerful currents of ideological orthodoxy, Vidal-Naquet examines what he views as Israeli nationalist distortions of the historical and archaeological record at Masada. In the promotion of an ideal of Jewish unity in the ancient world, he contends, some have chosen to ignore evidence of pluralism, civil strife, and the power of the Diaspora experience in the Jewish past. The book continues with an engaging discussion of the era of Jewish emancipation in Europe, during the French Revolution and thereafter, in which Vidal-Naquet explores the complex meanings of emancipation and assimilation. Employing previously unexamined material written by Alfred Dreyfus himself, he continues with a reevaluation of the Dreyfus affair, the episode of anti-Semitism and betrayal that shook France at the turn of the century. The Jews explores books, films, and eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust, including works by Arno Mayer, Claude Lanzmann, and Primo Levi. The book looks also at a recently published wartime journal by Vidal-Naquet's father, written in the years before he was deported. Vidal-Naquet is equally concerned with the disturbing phenomenon of Holocaust denial, pointing to the question of the gas chambers as central to refuting revisionist claims. The book closes with a personal account of growing up in Vichy France: integrating the tools of historiography with his own vivid memories of the war years, Vidal-Naquet recounts in moving detail the Occupation and the fateful day the Gestapo arrived at his home to take away his parents

La chambre de Mario Benjamin = The room of Mario Benjamin by Pivin( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monographie publiée à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée à la Maison Revue noire à Paris, du 14 novembre 2012 au 23 février 2013. Mario Benjamin est une personnalité à part dans le paysage tant de la création haïtienne que de l'art contemporain. Ses installations cherchent à exprimer plus la poésie d'un espace qu'une revendication ou une dénonciation de notre (de sa) société. Mais sa peinture reste un des traits majeurs de son oeuvre, jamais anachronique, toujours bouleversante, alors même que ce XXIe siècle naissant laisse peu de place à cette discipline. Ayant fréquenté les plus grandes manifestations, plusieurs fois les biennales de Venise, São Paulo, La Havane, il n'est plus un artiste à découvrir mais à consacrer. Revue Noire, dans une fidélité depuis vingt ans à son talent, édite sa première monographie et présente une exposition pendant trois mois
