Le premier ghetto, ou, L'exemplarité vénitienne by Alice Becker-Ho( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in French and Japanese and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beaucoup d'encre a coulé à propos de Venise et de son Ghetto, sans que l'on soit jusqu'à ce jour fixé sur le sens premier de ce mot. La seule certitude admise est que le terme de ghetto est apparu officiellement en 1516, date à laquelle la Cité des Doges a accordé aux Juifs après de longues tractations l'octroi d'une charte reconductible, les autorisant à créer un système de prêt assorti de la garantie d'un droit de résidence. On a alors désigné par Ghetto le quartier situé dans le sestiere de Cannaregio qui porte encore ce nom, où les Juifs furent autorisés à séjourner. Cette dénomination fut reprise par la suite pour se substituer à ce qui avait été le "quartier juif" partout ailleurs." Alice Becker-Ho se livre ici à une véritable enquête étymologique. Au travers de l'histoire des mots et des expressions vénitiennes, italiennes, hébraïques ou allemandes et même arabes, turques ou persanes, elle propose une explication convaincante de l'origine d'un mot lourd de sens, passé dans le langage courant sans qu'on en ait gardé la racine. Une démonstration lumineuse".--Quatrième de couverture

Recueil de paroles de Gitans. Orales ou écrites, elles témoignent de l'esprit universel de ces nomades très spéciaux en butte, comme tous les nomades, aux agissements des sociétés sédentaires victorieuses. Elles expriment la loi vitale de ces hommes restés libres, ces hommes dont "la seule profession est de vivre", comme disait Antonio Machado y Alvarez

Founder and theorist of the Situationist International, and author of The Society of the Spectacle, Guy Debord (1931-1994) was also interested in military strategy and classical war theory. Debord devised and wrote the board game and the book ‘A Game of War’ in collaboration with his wife, Alice Becker-Ho, who has assisted with the production of this publication. The game became Debord's obsession in the years before his suicide in 1994.; This first translation of the book (by Donald Nicholson-Smith, himself a past member of the Situationist group) comes in a slipcase (22 x 18 x 3 cm.) and includes the board and counters (17 x 21 cm.)
