L'abécédaire de Gilles Deleuze avec Claire Parnet by Pierre-André Boutang ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in French and Greek, Modern and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A series of conversations with Claire Parnet in which each letter of the alphabet evokes a word, from A (as in animal) to Z (as in zig zag). The sessions were taped when Deleuze was already terminally ill and "the awareness of mortality floats through the dialogue, making them not just intellectually stimulating but also emotionally engaging." -- Container
Picasso days, 1881-1935 ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Picasso said that his work should be seen as a kind of autobiography written for himself. But the women in Picasso's life figured extensively. They were his models and he drew and painted them again and again. But they also changed the way he looked at the world. 13 days in the life of Picasso explores the defining moments of the creator of some of the greatest works of the 20th century. Interviews with Picasso's son and daughter contrast a portrait of the man through his paintings, diary extracts and sketches."

China, through Mao's eyes ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The video counterpart to Philip Short's monumental book Mao: A Life, this four-part series guides viewers through the dynamic, innovative, and brutal accomplishments of the revolutionary Chinese leader. Featuring rarely-seen footage from a trove of film and video materials kept secret for decades by Chinese authorities, the series also presents interviews--granted exclusively to the film makers--with the last surviving members of Mao's inner circle. For students of Mao's era, this series may well represent the most powerful learning tool available. Part one of the series covers the early years of Mao Zedong, his struggle against nationalist and foreign force, and his consolidation of power. Part two explores the formative decades of Mao's government, the Great leap Forward, and events leading up to the Cultural Revolution. Part three examines the Cultural Revolution, its political and economic shockwaves, and its human cost. Part four recounts the Nixon-Mao diplomacy and Mao's death, and assesses the importance of Mao's rule and philosophy in 21st-century China

Eugène Delacroix assiste aux combats et s'inspire des 'Trois glorieuses' pour réaliser 'La liberté guidant le peuple'. L'oeuvre choque et suscite une vive polémique.

Mao une histoire chinoise by Adrian Maben ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Qui fut cet homme dont Richard Nixon dira qu'il a "transformé la Chine et changé le monde"? A la fois stratège militaire, homme politique, visionnaire, philosophe, mais aussi poète, il fut un manipulateur de génie, alliant sensualité, politique et révolution. Durant trente ans, Mao a régné sur la Chine, considéré comme un dieu dans son propre pays et vénéré comme idole révolutionnaire par des millions de personnes en Occident et dans les pays en voie de développement. Pourquoi et comment un fils de paysan issu d'une province isolée de la Chine profonde est-il parvenu à s'ériger en souverain incontesté de la nation la plus peuplée de la terre, possédant une aura et un pouvoir dignes des plus grands empereurs fondateurs de la Chine ? Qu'est-ce qui a engendré le pèlerinage idéologique de Mao à travers le nationalisme et l'anarchisme pour aboutir au communisme, avec comme point culminant une convulsion terrifiante, iconoclaste, et finalement vouée à l'échec : La Révolution culturelle, dont l'objectif fut de calquer les esprits d'une nation entière sur la pensée unique de Mao

"Dans cette série d'entretiens menés avec Pierre-André Boutang et Benoît Chantre, René Girard revient sur les grands étapes de sa carrière et les livres qui l'ont jalonnée : Mensonge romantique et vérité romanesque (1961), La violence et le sacré (1972), Des choses cachées depuis la fondation du monde (1978), Le Bouc émissaire (1982), Je vois Satan tomber comme l'éclair (1999) ou Les origines de la culture (2004). Vivant, alerte, souvent drôle, René Girard aborde ici les thèmes qui lui sont chers : les modes intellectuelles, le statut social du religieux, les ressorts du mimétisme, les erreurs du freudisme, la religion et la science, mais aussi et surtout la Bible et l'actualité d'une pensée apocalyptique-- autant d'éléments qui modèlent sa vision des événements en cours."--Boîtier
