Paris-Amsterdam underground : essays on cultural resistance, subversion, and diversion by Christoph Lindner( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The postwar histories of Paris and Amsterdam have been significantly defined by the notion of the "underground" as both a material and metaphorical space. Examining the underground traffic between the two cities, this book interrogates the countercultural histories of Paris and Amsterdam in the mid to late-twentieth century. Shuttling between Paris and Amsterdam, as well as between postwar avant-gardism and twenty-first century global urbanism, this interdisciplinary book seeks to create a mirroring effect over the notion of the underground as a driving force in the making of the contemporary European city
The French intifada : the long war between France and its Arabs by Andrew Hussey( Book )

22 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A provocative rethinking of France's long relationship with the Arab world. To fully understand both the social and political pressures wracking contemporary France--and, indeed, all of Europe--as well as major events from the Arab Spring to the tensions in Mali, Andrew Hussey believes that we have to look beyond the confines of domestic horizons. As much as unemployment, economic stagnation, and social deprivation exacerbate the ongoing turmoil in the banlieues, the root of the problem lies elsewhere: in the continuing fallout from Europe's colonial era. Combining a fascinating and compulsively readable mix of history, literature, and politics with his years of personal experience visiting the banlieues and countries across the Arab world, especially Algeria, Hussey attempts to make sense of the present situation. In the course of teasing out the myriad interconnections between past and present in Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Beirut, and Western Europe, The French Intifada shows that the defining conflict of the twenty-first century will not be between Islam and the West but between two dramatically different experiences of the world--the colonizers and the colonized"--
The game of war : the life and death of Guy Debord by Andrew Hussey( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and French and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since his death in 1994 (when he put a bullet through his heart in his lonely farmhouse) Guy Debord has been hailed as one of the key thinkers of the age. In Britain and the United States, his theories on the 'spectacle' of modern life were simultaneously hailed as deadly truths by underground subversives and accorded the highest academic prestige. In the same way, the Situationist International (SI), a volatile group of artists, revolutionaries, and intellectuals which Debord led through the 1950s and 1960s, is considered to be the most important art movement since Dada and the Surrealists." "This biography is an appraisal of a lone and defiant figure whose story both follows and, at one historic moment in 1968, appears to lead the drift of art and politics in post-war Paris. 'It could almost be believed that I was the only person to have loved Paris, ' Debord said. Then, almost with a shrug, 'But no one has twice raised Paris to revolt.'"--Jacket
The inner scar : the mysticism of Georges Bataille by Andrew Hussey( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nairn's Paris by Ian Nairn( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

50th Anniversary of original publication; this is a unique Paris guidebook from the late, great, architecture and travel writer Ian Nairn. Illustrated with the author's black and white snaps of the city, Nairn shows his eye for detail - whether it is stonework on an archway, shadows cast by a railing, or an empty chair in a Paris park, in this book which celebrates the City of Light. Nairn's Paris captures the city on the cusp of great changes and provides a glimpse of a city that is about to disappear. Here is an idiosyncratic and unpretentious portrait of the 'collective masterpiece' that is Paris. Introduced by writer and BBC presenter Andrew Hussey, author of the popular Paris: The Secret History. 'About one third of the book is discovery, in the sense that I came upon the sites by accident or by following a topographical hunch. There must be many more, and all you need for the search is the ability to turn off the main road, switch on your antennae and respond. Good luck.' - Ian Nairn
