L'écriture de soi : Ignace de Loyola, Montaigne, Stendhal, Roland Barthes by Louis Marin( Book )
10 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 179 libraries worldwide
"Ainsi, lecteur, je suis moi-même la matière de mon livre." Il n'est guère façon plus intime de tisser un texte écrit, avec la trame du visible de la peinture et la chaîne de l'écriture, du livre autour d'un même sujet, du sujet écrivant et peignant, écrivant avec des images et peignant avec des mots, un sujet s'exposant dans la topique de ses lieux et dont le nom vient occuper un lieu central

The East in the West by Jack Goody( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 113 libraries worldwide
The East in the West reassesses Western views of Asia. Traditionally many European historians and theorists have seen the societies of the East as 'static' or 'backward'. Jack Goody challenges these assumptions, beginning with the notion of a special Western rationality which enabled 'us' and not 'them' to modernise. He then turns to book-keeping, which several social and economic historians have seen as intrinsic to capitalism, arguing that there was in fact little difference between East and West in terms of mercantile activity. Other factors said to inhibit the East's development, such as the family and forms of labour, have also been greatly exaggerated. This Eurocentrism both fails to explain the current achievements of the East, and misunderstands Western history. The East in the West starts to redress the balance, and so marks a fundamental shift in our view of Western and Eastern history and society. -- Publisher description from (Oct. 14, 2011)
Les jésuites dans l'Espagne du XVIe siècle by Marcel Bataillon( Book )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in French and Spanish and held by 113 libraries worldwide
"Los jesuitas en la España del siglo XVI es fruto del esfuerzo por rescatar del olvido el erudito curso dictado por Marcel Bataillon en el Collège de France durante 1945 y 1946 que, en forma de manuscrito, permaneció oculto entre los archivos del autor, y luego, ya como proyecto de publicación, siguió inédito durante varios años. Desde la incipiente agrupación de algunos estudiantes de la Universidad de Alcalá a sus primeros actos de evangelización hasta su posterior nombramiento oficial como orden, y a partir de la utilización conjunta de los textos de la institución y la correspondencia de Ignacio de Loyola y sus primeros colaboradores, esta obra da cuenta del nacimiento de la Compañía de Jesús, una de las órdenes religiosas de mayor importancia no sólo en España, sino en una parte de Europa y América. Enriquecida con una presentación de Pierre-Antoine Fabre y un riguroso aparato crítico, esta obra finalmente consigue ver la luz y constituye un aporte imprescindible al estudio del fenómeno jesuita en la historia de Europa y el mundo modernos"--Cubierta

The culture of flowers by Jack Goody( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in French and held by 76 libraries worldwide
"Jack Goody's new book takes as its theme the symbolic and transactional uses of flowers. He begins his study by asking why there are so few uses of flowers in Africa, either domesticated or wild, either in reality or in representation, and goes on to initiate a world-wide enquiry into the place of flowers in secular life and religious ritual from ancient Egypt to modern times. He links the use of flowers to the rise of advanced systems of agriculture, the growth of social stratification and the spread of luxury goods, looking at the history of aesthetic horticulture in Europe and Asia. Other themes that emerge are the role of written texts in building up a culture of flowers; the importance of trade and communications in disseminating and transforming attitudes to flowers; the rejection on puritanical grounds of flowers and their artistic representation; and the multiplicity of meanings which flowers possess." "A particular feature of the book is its analysis of the role of flowers in the Far East and of the aesthetic and political implications of flowers in China during the cultural revolution. The conclusion returns to earlier themes of long-term developments in cultural history, treating uses of flowers in the context of theology and ideology as well as of processes of production and systems of 'class'." "Written from a broad temporal and geographical perspective, this wide-ranging book will appeal not only to anthropologists and social historians but also to anyone interested in flowers and their symbolic function across the centuries."--Jacket
