Strassen in Berlin und anderswo by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in French and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Berlin, Paris, Marseille, Nice et l'Italie : non dans leurs vues pour touristes, mais dans leurs recoins oubliés, leurs périphéries, leurs espaces ouverts, mêlés. C'est à cette flânerie dans une Europe secrète des années 30 qu'invite Siegfried Kracauer dans cet ouvrage, à la lisière de l'essai, du récit, de la description poétique et de l'enquête sociologique ou policière
The railway journey : the industrialization of time and space in the 19th century by Wolfgang Schivelbusch( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 40 libraries worldwide
The impact of constant technological change upon our perception of the world is so pervasive as to have become a commonplace of modern society. But this was not always the case; as Wolfgang Schivelbusch points out in this fascinating study, our adaptation to technological change-the development of our modern, industrialized consciousness-was very much a learned behavior. In The Railway Journey, Schivelbusch examines the origins of this industrialized consciousness by exploring the reaction in the nineteenth century to the first dramatic avatar of technological change, the railroad.<BR
L'Amour de Platon : roman by Leopold Sacher-Masoch( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 36 libraries worldwide
Erzählt von einem anderen Sonderling der Liebe: Der 20jährige Offizier Henryk von Tarnow nennt sich selbst einen Idealisten, weil er die Welt der Körper verachtet und danach trachtet, das Geistige in uns zu stärken. Deshalb ist er auch ein Weiberfeind. Frauen nämlich sind in seinen Augen rein sinnliche Wesen und unfähig zu der geistigen Liebe, nach der er sich sehnt. Männer hält Henryk für geistig höher entwickelte Wesen, Frauen allenfalls für einen Zeitvertreib. Allerdings interessiert sich Henryk nicht für diesen Zeitvertreib, sondern mehr für treffliche Bücher und genußreiche Gespräche über Philosophie, Kunst und Geschichte, weshalb ihn seine Kameraden einen neuen Plato nennen

The snows of yesteryear : portraits for an autobiography by Gregor von Rezzori( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 22 libraries worldwide
Gregor von Rezzori was born in Czernowitz, a onetime provincial capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire that was later to be absorbed successively into Romania, the USSR, and the Ukraine'a town that was everywhere and nowhere, with a population of astonishing diversity. Growing up after World War I and the collapse of the empire, Rezzori lived in a twilit world suspended between the formalities of the old nineteenth-century order which had shaped his aristocratic parents and the innovations, uncertainties, and raw terror of the new century. The haunted atmosphere of this dying world is beautifully rendered in the pages of The Snows of Yesteryear. The book is a series of portraits'amused, fond, sometimes appalling'of Rezzori's family: his hysterical and histrionic mother, disappointed by marriage, destructively obsessed with her children's health and breeding; his father, a flinty reactionary, whose only real love was hunting; his haughty older sister, fated to die before thirty; his earthy nursemaid, who introduced Rezzori to the power of storytelling and the inevitability of death; and a beloved governess, Bunchy. Telling their stories, Rezzori tells his own, holding his early life to the light like a crystal until it shines for us with a prismatic brilliance
