Lafayette by , Book Resume:

Il y a un paradoxe Lafayette : héros à la réputation quasi immaculée outre-Atlantique, il reste un mal aimé de l’histoire de France. Lafayette est souvent résumé par un cliché – le « héros des deux mondes » ou réduit à une caricature, celle d’un personnage vain et naïf, voire d’un traître. Au-delà des apparences et des procès d’intention, Laurent Zecchini restitue la dimension et la complexité d’un homme au destin épique : après avoir joué un rôle si singulier dans la naissance des États-Unis d’Amérique, il a été un personnage central des deux révolutions françaises (1789 et 1830), l’artisan de l’abdication de Napoléon, puis le porte-drapeau des luttes d’émancipation en Europe... Grâce à une approche inédite des archives françaises et américaines, l’auteur dévoile un Lafayette débarrassé de la diabolisation et de l’idéalisation qui ont si longtemps brouillé son image. Certes soucieux de sa gloire, il a été avant tout le héraut de la liberté, dans les combats de la guerre d’indépendance américaine comme dans le maelström de 1789 et au cours des Trois Glorieuses. Par les valeurs qu’il a défendues, il incarne quelque chose de plus vaste que lui-même, des idées qui sont d’une surprenante modernité. Journaliste pendant plus de quarante ans, dont trente-cinq ans au journal Le Monde, Laurent Zecchini a été correspondant dans de nombreuses capitales (New Delhi, Londres, Washington, Bruxelles, Jérusalem), avant de se consacrer pendant quatre ans et demi à cette biographie de Gilbert de Lafayette.

Le Secret du Roi by Gilles Perrault Book Resume:

Louis XV meurt le 10 mai 1774. Son petit-fils Louis XVI décide de dissoudre le " Secret ", service créé dix-huit ans plus tôt par feu le roi. Le service disparu, ses agents demeurent, et l'on peut compter sur Charles de Broglie pour ne pas assister les bras croisés aux grands événements qui vont secouer le monde. Mais il faut désormais agir dans une stricte clandestinité. L'Amérique bouge. Les Insurgents entament la lutte pour l'indépendance. Tandis que Beaumarchais s'improvise armateur et fournisseur d'armes, l'équipe de Broglie se mobilise pour envoyer aux Américains les cadres militaires indispensables. Gilbert de La Fayette, dix-neuf ans, héros emblématique de l'appui décisif apporté par la France aux jeunes Etats-Unis, aurait-il rencontré son destin sans Charles de Broglie? Broglie lui-même, enfin délivré de la paralysante tutelle royale, a-t-il quelque chance de réussir dans le projet le plus extraordinaire jamais conçu par son ardente imagination? Les longs cheminements décrits dans les deux tomes précédents trouvent dans celui-ci leur point de réunion. La fièvre américaine les emporte tous, de Broglie à Beaumarchais, de La Fayette à Dumouriez. Au-delà des péripéties et des déceptions individuelles, c'est dans le Nouveau Monde que les espérances trop longtemps bridées en Europe vont trouver à s'accomplir. Après La Passion polonaise et L'Ombre de la Bastille, voici le troisième et dernier tome du monumental récit historique de Gilles Perrault consacré aux " services secrets " de la monarchie française finissante au XVIIIe siècle (prix Fémina et prix des Lecteurs de La Vie, 1993) " Tout le livre est passionnant, instructif, sidérant... Le siècle est là, qui se décompose. Un beau travail écrit de main de maître. " Françoise Giroud, Le Journal du Dimanche " L'auteur jongle avec les complots, les disgrâces et les enlèvements... Le récit est toujours aussi passionnant. " Anne Muratori-Philip, Le Figaro littéraire " Cette enquête sur dossier... est autant une descente dans les caves que dans l'âme d'un siècle. Elle en a l'allegro, la lucidité sèche, le sens du trait et du coup d'oeil. " Régis Debray, Le Monde

Histoire de l'Auvergne by Jean Anglade Book Resume:

Une Histoire de l'Auvergne écrite par un romancier-conteur et qui se lit comme un roman. Ayant librement choisi un certain nombre d'époques, d'événements, de personnages, en fonction de leur importance, mais aussi de leur « couleur », Jean Anglade les raconte à sa manière, avec un ton alternativement humoristique, lyrique, tendre ou insolent, émaillant son récit de souvenirs personnels, d'hypothèses ingénieuses, de rapprochements inattendus. Ainsi nous présente-t-il Vercingétorix, « celui qui commande aux cents chefs », sous un jour surprenant, nous emmène-t-il au coeur du Moyen Age revisiter le mystère des Vierges noires et nous fait-il revivre les « grands siècles » de l'Auvergne. Il trace les portraits de quelques grandes figures auvergnates : Blaise Pascal, ou le révolutionnaire Georges Couthon ; auxquels viennent s'ajouter d'autres personnages, plus sombres et parfois même sanguinaires, comme le connétable de Bourbon, ou bien Mandrin, le prestigieux brigand. De cette histoire émerge à travers les siècles la forte personnalité de l'Auvergnat, « compteur d'étoiles, meneur de troupeaux et berger d'hommes ». Jean Anglade, né à Thiers (Puy de Dôme) en 1915, est fils d'une servante et d'un ouvrier maçon. Instituteur de campagne, puis professeur de lettres et agrégé d'italien, il est l'auteur de nombreux romans et essais. Il est considéré comme un écrivain important du Massif Central.

Conscripts and Deserters by Alan Forrest Book Resume:

Between the outbreak of war with Austria in 1792 and Napoleon's final debacle in 1814, France remained almost continously at war, recruiting in the process some two to three million frenchmen--a level of recruitment unknown to previous generations and widely resented as an attack on the liberties of rural communities. Forrest challenges the notion of a nation heroically rushing to arms by examining the massive rates of desertion and avoidance of service as well as their consequences on French society--on military campaigns and the morale of armies, on political opinion at home, on the social fabric of local villages, and on the Napoleonic dream of bringing about a coherent and centralized state.

Battle Grounds by P. Whitney Lackenbauer Book Resume:

Base closures, use of airspace for weapons testing and low-level flying, environmental awareness, and Aboriginal land claims have focused attention in recent years on the use of Native lands for military training. But is the military's interest in Aboriginal lands new? Battle Grounds analyzes a century of government-Aboriginal interaction and negotiation to explore how the Canadian military came to use Aboriginal lands for training. It examines what the process reveals about the larger and evolving relationship between governments and Aboriginal communities and how increasing Aboriginal assertiveness and activism have affected the issue.

The American Revolution by Gordon S. Wood Book Resume:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “An elegant synthesis done by the leading scholar in the field, which nicely integrates the work on the American Revolution over the last three decades but never loses contact with the older, classic questions that we have been arguing about for over two hundred years.”—Joseph J. Ellis, author of Founding Brothers A magnificent account of the revolution in arms and consciousness that gave birth to the American republic. When Abraham Lincoln sought to define the significance of the United States, he naturally looked back to the American Revolution. He knew that the Revolution not only had legally created the United States, but also had produced all of the great hopes and values of the American people. Our noblest ideals and aspirations-our commitments to freedom, constitutionalism, the well-being of ordinary people, and equality-came out of the Revolutionary era. Lincoln saw as well that the Revolution had convinced Americans that they were a special people with a special destiny to lead the world toward liberty. The Revolution, in short, gave birth to whatever sense of nationhood and national purpose Americans have had. No doubt the story is a dramatic one: Thirteen insignificant colonies three thousand miles from the centers of Western civilization fought off British rule to become, in fewer than three decades, a huge, sprawling, rambunctious republic of nearly four million citizens. But the history of the American Revolution, like the history of the nation as a whole, ought not to be viewed simply as a story of right and wrong from which moral lessons are to be drawn. It is a complicated and at times ironic story that needs to be explained and understood, not blindly celebrated or condemned. How did this great revolution come about? What was its character? What were its consequences? These are the questions this short history seeks to answer. That it succeeds in such a profound and enthralling way is a tribute to Gordon Wood’s mastery of his subject, and of the historian’s craft.

Ethics and Politics of Translating by Henri Meschonnic Book Resume:

What if meaning were the last thing that mattered in language? In this essay, Henri Meschonnic explains what it means to translate the sense of language and how to do it. In a radical stand against a hermeneutical approach based on the dualistic view of the linguistic sign and against its separation into a meaningful signified and a meaningless signifier, Henri Meschonnic argues for a poetics of translating. Because texts generate meaning through their power of expression, to translate ethically involves listening to the various rhythms that characterize them: prosodic, consonantal or vocalic patterns, syntactical structures, sentence length and punctuation, among other discursive means. However, as the book illustrates, such an endeavour goes against the grain and, more precisely, against a 2500-year-old tradition in the case of biblical translation. The inability of translators to give ear to rhythm in language results from a culturally transmitted deafness. Henri Meschonnic decries the generalized unwillingness to remedy this cultural condition and discusses the political implications for the subject of discourse.

John Jay by Walter Stahr Book Resume:

From the New York Times–bestselling author of Seward and Stanton comes the definitive biography of John Jay: “Wonderful” (Walter Isaacson, New York Times–bestselling author of Leonardo da Vinci). John Jay is central to the early history of the American Republic. Drawing on substantial new material, renowned biographer Walter Stahr has written a full and highly readable portrait of both the public and private man—one of the most prominent figures of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. “The greatest founders—such as Washington and Jefferson—have kept even the greatest of the second tier of the nation’s founding generation in the shadows. But now John Jay, arguably the most important of this second group, has found an admiring, skilled student in Stahr . . . Since the last biography of Jay appeared 60 years ago, a mountain of new knowledge about the early nation has piled up, and Stahr uses it all with confidence and critical detachment. Jay had a remarkable career. He was president of the Continental Congress, secretary of foreign affairs, a negotiator of the treaty that won the United States its independence in 1783, one of three authors of The Federalist Papers, first chief justice of the Supreme Court and governor of his native New York . . . [Stahr] places Jay once again in the company of America’s greatest statesmen, where he unquestionably belongs.” —Publishers Weekly “Even-handed . . . Riveting on the matter of negotiating tactics, as practiced by Adams, Jay and Franklin.” —The Economist “Stahr has not only given us a meticulous study of the life of John Jay, but one very much in the spirit of the man . . . Thorough, fair, consistently intelligent, and presented with the most scrupulous accuracy. Let us hope that this book helps to retrieve Jay from the relative obscurity to which he has been unfairly consigned.” —Ron Chernow, author of Alexander Hamilton

Saratoga by Richard M. Ketchum Book Resume:

In the summer of 1777 (twelve months after the Declaration of Indepence) the British launched an invasion from Canada under General John Burgoyne. It was the campaign that was supposed to the rebellion, but it resulted in a series of battles that changed America's history and that of the world. Stirring narrative history, skillfully told through the perspective of those who fought in the campaign, Saratoga brings to life as never before the inspiring story of Americans who did their utmost in what seemed a lost cause, achieving what proved to be the crucial victory of the Revolution.

The Encyclopedia of Erotic Literature is a two-volume work that contains some 540 entries on erotic literature on an international scale.
