The founding myths of Israel : nationalism, socialism, and the making of the Jewish state by Zeev Sternhell( )

40 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and French and held by 2,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a controversial and timely book, which not only provides useful historical background to Israel's ongoing struggle to mobilize its citizenry to support a shared vision of nationhood, but also raises a question of general significance: is a national movement whose aim is a political and cultural revolution capable of coexisting with the universal values of secularism, individualism, and social justice? This bold critical reevaluation will unsettle long-standing myths as it contributes to a fresh new historiography of Zionism and Israel. At the same time, while it examines the past, The Founding Myths of Israel reflects profoundly on the future of the Jewish state
The birth of fascist ideology : from cultural rebellion to political revolution by Zeev Sternhell( Book )

30 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and French and held by 1,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When The Birth of Fascist Ideology was first published in 1989 in France and at the beginning of 1993 in Italy, it aroused a storm of response, positive and negative, to Zeev Sternhell's controversial interpretations. In Sternhell's view, fascism was much more than an episode in the history of Italy. He argues here that it possessed a coherent ideology with deep roots in European civilization. Long before fascism became a political force, he maintains, it was a major cultural phenomenon. This important book further asserts that although fascist ideology was grounded in a revolt against the Enlightenment, it was not a reactionary movement. It represented, instead, an ideological alternative to Marxism and liberalism and competed effectively with them by positing a revolt against modernity. Sternhell argues that the conceptual framework of fascism played an important role in its development. Building on radical nationalism and an "antimaterialist" revision of Marxism, fascism sought to destroy the existing political order and to uproot its theoretical and moral foundations. At the same time, its proponents wished to preserve all the achievements of modern technology and the advantages of the market economy. Nevertheless, fascism opposed every "bourgeois" value: universalism, humanism, progress, natural rights, and equality. Thus, as Sternhell shows, the fascists adopted the economic aspect of liberalism but completely denied its philosophical principles and the intellectual and moral heritage of modernity
Neither right nor left : fascist ideology in France by Zeev Sternhell( Book )

27 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Listed by Le Monde as one of the forty most important books published in France during the 1980s, this explosive work asserts that fascism was an important part of the mainstream of European history, not just a temporary development in Germany and Italy but a significant aspect of French culture as well. Neither right nor left, fascism united antibourgeois, antiliberal nationalism, and revolutionary syndicalist thought, each of which joined in reflecting the political culture inherited from eighteenth-century France. From the first, Sternhell's argument generated strong feelings among people who wished to forget the Vichy years, and his themes drew enormous public attention in 1994, as Paul Touvier was condemned for crimes against humanity and a new biography probed President Mitterand's Vichy connections. The author's new preface speaks to the debates of 1994 and reinforces the necessity of acknowledging the past, as President Chirac has recently done on France's behalf
The anti-enlightenment tradition by Zeev Sternhell( )

15 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this masterful work of historical scholarship, Zeev Sternhell, an internationally renowned Israeli political scientist and historian, presents a controversial new view of the fall of democracy and the rise of radical nationalism in the twentieth century. Sternhell locates their origins in the eighteenth century with the advent of the Anti-Enlightenment, far earlier than most historians." "The thinkers belonging to the Anti-Enlightenment (a movement originally identified by Friedrich Nietzsche) represent a perspective that is antirational and that rejects the principles of natural law and the rights of man. Sternhell asserts that the Anti-Enlightenment was a development separate from the Enlightenment and sees the two traditions as evolving parallel to one another over time. He contends that J.G. Herder and Edmund Burke are among the real founders of the Anti-Enlightenment and shows how that school undermined the very foundations of modern liberalism, finally contributing to the development of fascism that culminated in the European catastrophes of the twentieth century."--Jacket
La droite révolutionnaire : 1885-1914 : les origines françaises du fascisme by Zeev Sternhell( Book )

49 editions published between 1978 and 2000 in French and Undetermined and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Devenu une référence depuis sa parution, cet ouvrage prouve que la France n'a pas échappé à la contamination fasciste, ce que prouvent les années trente et les derniers mois de Vichy, mais qu'elle fut au foyer de l'idéologie fasciste, lorsqu'entre 1885 et 1914, les théoriciens de la droite révolutionnaire posèrent les fondements de leurs théories politiques

Les anti-Lumières : du XVIIIe siècle à la guerre froide by Zeev Sternhell( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet essai parcourt l'histoire européenne depuis les Lumières et tente de retrouver les fondements d'une idéologie qui, avec une fraction de la gauche collectiviste comme de la droite nostalgique, vient à exclure ce qui n'est pas national, en particulier les juifs. Sur le plan politique, celle-ci aboutira à des régimes autoritaires ou fascistes et à l'ossature doctrinale de Vichy
Maurice Barrès et le nationalisme français by Zeev Sternhell( Book )

9 editions published in 1985 in French and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biography of Barrès (1862-1923), tracing the development of his nationalist theories. At first, under Boulangist influence, Barrès criticized the bourgeois, capitalist, and parliamentary systems, supporting populist nationalism under an authoritarian leader. His adoption of antisemitism as a unifying national force transformed it into a central political concept. The second phase of his nationalism was linked to the development of the anti-Dreyfusard movement and ideology, while in his third phase he was influenced by racial determinism and scientists such as Jules Soury. Barrès' "proto-fascist" ideology was a synthesis of romantic, conservative, and dynamic radical nationalism

20 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in French and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment le jeune Barrès des années 1880, écrivain, dilettante et anarchiste, a-t-il pu devenir en l'espace de quelques années l'un des grands interprètes de la pensée traditionaliste française, le doctrinaire et le poète du culte de la Terre et des morts. A travers une biographie intellectuelle, l'auteur analyse l'environnement politique, les amitiés et les influences

Les anti-Lumières une tradition du XVIIIe siècle à la guerre froide by Zeev Sternhell( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in French and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contre les Lumières et leurs valeurs universelles qui régissent encore les sociétés démocratiques, s'est dressée, du XVIIIe siècle à aujourd'hui, une autre tradition. Cette modernité se veut alternative et mène la guerre grâce à une argumentation rendue cohérente par le fait que tous ses partisans se lisent les uns les autres avec une grande attention et constituent son corpus. Taine écrit sur Burke et Carlyle, Meinecke sur Burke et Herder, lequel, pour Renan, est le " penseur-roi ", Maistre suit Burke et il est lui-même suivi par Maurras, Sorel attaque les Lumières avec une hargne égale à celle de Maurras. Développant la pensée de Herder, Spengler forge le concept de l'imperméabilité des cultures; poursuivant les analyses de Herder, Isaiah Berlin écrit sur Vico avec un ravissement semblable à celui de Croce. Subissant l'influence de Meinecke, il ajoute dans la seconde moitié du XXe siècle un maillon à la culture politique des anti-Lumières. Preuve est donc faite que les maux contre lesquels ont combattu les Lumières sont de toutes les époques : pour éviter à l'homme du XXIe siècle de sombrer dans un nouvel âge glacé du conformisme, la vision prospective d'un individu maître de son présent, sinon de son avenir, demeure irremplaçable
L'affaire Dreyfus et l'opinion publique, en France et à l'étranger by Joaquim Coll i Amargós( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le centenaire du début de l'affaire Dreyfus invite à revenir sur l'alchimie complexe qui conduisit d'une confidentielle affaire d'espionnage à un grand débat public, crise emblématique et paradigme du passage à l'État de droit, mais aussi de la lutte constante contre préjugés et pulsions irrationnelles qu'implique la démocratie. À ce titre, l'affaire Dreyfus reste une leçon permanente. Compte tenu de la position particulière de la France dans le monde de l'époque, point de référence pour tous les hommes épris de liberté et de justice, cette fièvre hexagonale eut un retentissement quasi planétaire. Ceci attestait l'irrésistible ascension du quatrième pouvoir, celui de la presse, avec ses droits, mais aussi ses responsabilités, pour le meilleur et pour le pire. À deux pas du lycée de Rennes, siège du second Conseil de guerre en 1899 et placé aujourd'hui sous l'invocation d'Émile Zola, le Musée de Bretagne conserve depuis 1978 un fonds de documents, en particulier des témoignages de soutien reçus par la famille Dreyfus, de France et du monde entier. La rencontre en ce lieu, en septembre 1994, de spécialistes, français et étrangers, a donc fait se rejoindre la mémoire, qui est une ardente obligation, et l'histoire, laquelle travaille "à frais nouveaux", élargissant sans cesse sa quête de documents, de l'écrit à l'image, traités avec des méthodes renouvelées
