The myth of nations : the Medieval origins of Europe by Patrick J Geary( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Modern-day Europeans by the millions proudly trace back their national identities to the Celts, Franks, Gauls, Goths, Huns, or Serbs--or some combination of the various peoples who inhabited, traversed, or pillaged their continent more than a thousand years ago. According to Patrick Geary, this is historical nonsense. The idea that national character is fixed for all time in a simpler, distant past is groundless, he argues in this unflinching reconsideration of European nationhood. Few of the peoples that many Europeans honor as sharing their sense of ''nation'' had comparably homogeneous identities even the Huns, he points out, were firmly united only under Attila's ten-year reign. Geary dismantles the nationalist myths about how the nations of Europe were born. He contrasts the myths with the actual history of Europe's transformation between the fourth and ninth centuries--the period of grand migrations that nationalists hold dear. The nationalist sentiments today increasingly taken for granted in Europe emerged, he argues, only in the nineteenth century. Ironically, this phenomenon was kept alive not just by responsive populations--but by complicit scholars. Ultimately, Geary concludes, the actual formation of European peoples must be seen as an extended process that began in antiquity and continues in the present. The resulting image is a challenge to those who anchor contemporary antagonisms in ancient myths--to those who claim that immigration and tolerance toward minorities despoil ''nationhood.'' As Geary shows, such ideologues--whether Le Pens who champion ''the French people born with the baptism of Clovis in 496'' or Milosevics who cite early Serbian history to claim rebellious regions--know their myths but not their history

A war like no other : how the Athenians and Spartans fought the Peloponnesian War by Victor Davis Hanson( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hanson portrays the ways Athens and Sparta fought on land and sea, in city and countryside, and details their employment of the full scope of conventional and nonconventional tactics, from sieges to targeted assassinations, torture, and terrorism. He also assesses the crucial roles played by warriors such as Pericles and Lysander; artists, among them Aristophanes; and philosophers including Sophocles and Plato." "Hanson's analysis of events and personalities raises many questions: Were Athens and Sparta like the United States and the Soviet Union, two superpowers battling to the death? Is the Peloponnesian War echoed in the endless, frustrating conflicts of Vietnam, Northern Ireland, and the current Middle East - or was it more like America's own Civil War, a brutal rift that rent the fabric of a glorious society, or even this century's "red state-blue state" schism between liberals and conservatives, a cultural war that manifestly controls military policies? Hanson brings the facts to life and unearths the often surprising ways in which the past informs the present."--BOOK JACKET

Ghettostadt Łódź and the making of a Nazi city by Gordon J Horwitz( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Under the Third Reich, Nazi Germany undertook an unprecedented effort to refashion the city of Lodz. Home to prewar Poland's second most populous Jewish community, this was to become a German city of enchantment--a modern, clean, and orderly showcase of urban planning and the arts. Central to the undertaking, however, was a crime of unparalleled dimension: the ghettoization, exploitation, and ultimate annihilation of the city's entire Jewish population. This book is an examination of the Jewish ghetto's place in the Nazi worldview. Exploring ghetto life in its broadest context, it maneuvers between the perspectives and actions of Lodz's beleaguered Jewish community, the Germans who oversaw and administered the ghetto's affairs, and the "ordinary" inhabitants of the once Polish city, showing how the Nazis exploited Jewish institutional traditions, social divisions, faith in rationality, and hope for survival to achieve their wider goal of Jewish elimination.--From publisher description

Le rastaquouère dans la littérature française (1880-1914) contribution à l'étude d'un stéréotype by Jean-Pierre Ricard( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1881, a new world -rastaquouère- appeared in French. At first, the world rastaquouère meant an ostentatiously wealthy foreigner. It was widely used until the First World War. The rastaquouère soon became a stereotype of fin-de siècle literature and was as popular both on the stage and in the novel and short story. References to the rastaquouère were also widespread in the press and in contemporary social and political writing. The stereotype of the rastaquouère can be defined by his name, the language he spoke, his profession and his mores. The study of the rastaquouère brings to light the widespread rejection of cosmopolitanism in France, from the political, social as well as from the aesthetic points of view. Thus, beyond the question of the rastaquouère who became a convenient scapegoat, a certain view of French identity is in question here
