Paris after the liberation, 1944-1949 by Antony Beevor( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Allied troops fought their way into Paris on August 25, 1944, they were greeted by the wildest scenes of joy Europe had ever witnessed. The following day, over a million people thronged the streets in a delirious atmosphere of freedom to watch General de Gaulle's triumphant march from the Arc de Triomphe to Notre Dame. There was a black edge to the exuberance, though. Hatreds from the Vichy era led to the settling of scores in a chaos of often wild justice. The period that followed was full of contrast and contradiction: Picasso, a multimillionaire, became the Communist Party's star recruit; an infatuation with American popular culture thrived amid virulent anti-Americanism; black marketeers grew rich on the misery of the population; literary and social life revived miraculously amid the poverty and dilapidation; Christian Dior revolutionized fashion with the extravagant use of material, and working-class women tore the clothes in outrage from one of his models. Arthur Miller observed of Paris, emotionally scarred by the Occupation, that "the moral, the literary, and the political were the same." Paris was the focal point in the opening stages of the Cold War, and in the new era of the atom bomb. Existentialists and Communists arguing in cafes sensed that history had entered a decisive phase. At a time when rumor was as powerful as fact, word of plots and counterplots proliferated, and France came to the brink of civil war. Paris After the Liberation is the first work to do justice to this extraordinary period. It is a landmark achievement, a brilliant fusion of politics, literary life, society, theater, fashion, and art woven into a rich and intimate account brimming with revelation. Acclaimed historians Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper (the granddaughter of England's first postwar ambassador to France) have drawn on an astonishing array of sources: unpublished diaries, letters, and photographs; interviews with many of the period's leading figures; and important material from archives in Paris, the United States, London, and Moscow, whose newly opened state papers have provided a wealth of completely fresh information, much of it startling. Paris After the Liberation brings to life a pivotal moment of world history, suffusing it with wit, anecdote, and brio. It is a brilliant and thoroughly enjoyable work of synthesis, a fitting celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the liberation of Paris

"Les membres de la première expédition vers Mars périrent tous. Sauf un : Valentin Michaël Smith, né sur Mars, élevé par les Martiens, recueilli et ramené sur Terre, à vingt ans, par la deuxième expédition au début du XXIe siècle. Physiquement, Valentin Michaël Smith était humain. Mentalement, il était martien. La seule analogie qui convienne pour le définir est celle des enfants-loups, des enfants élevés par des loups. Mais les Martiens n'étaient pas des loups. Leur culture était plus riche que celle des Terriens. Le premier problème de Mike? Survivre sur la Terre! Tout lui était agression : la pesanteur, la pression atmosphérique, et surtout les hommes ... Le second problème fut pour lui de comprendre en quoi les humains différaient des Martiens et pourquoi ils étaient malheureux ..." [Source : 4e de couv.]

The private life of Chairman Mao : the memoirs of Mao's personal physician by Zhisui Li( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1954 until Mao Zedong's death twenty-two years later, Dr. Li Zhisui was the Chinese ruler's personal physician, which put him in almost daily -- and increasingly intimate -- contact with Mao and his inner circle. For most of these years, Mao's health was excellent; thus he and the doctor had time to discuss political and personal matters. Dr. Li recorded many of these conversations in his diaries as well as in his memory. In The Private Life of Chairman Mao, he reconstructs his extraordinary experiences. Dr. Li clarifies numerous long-standing puzzles, such as the true nature of Mao's feelings toward the United States and the Soviet Union. He describes Mao's deliberate rudeness toward Khrushchev when the Soviet leader paid his secret visit to Beijing in 1958, and we learn here, for the first time, how Mao came to invite the American table tennis team to China, a decision that led to Nixon's historic visit a few months later. We also learn why Mao took the disastrous Great Leap Forward, which resulted in the worst famine in recorded history, and his equally strange reason for risking war with the United States by shelling the Taiwanese islands of Quemoy and Matsu. Dr. Li supplies surprising portraits of Zhou Enlai and many other top leaders. He describes Mao's relationship with his wife, and gives us insight into the sexual politics of Mao's court. Readers will find here a full account of Mao's sex life, and of such personal details as his peculiar sleeping arrangements and his dependency on barbiturates. We witness Mao's bizarre death and the even stranger events that followed it. Dr. Li tells of Mao's remarkable gift for intimacy, as well as of his indifference to the suffering and deaths of millions of his fellow Chinese, including old comrades
