Napoléon III a longtemps été décrié mais l’homme est plus complexe qu’il n’y paraît. Sous le Second Empire, entre 1852 et 1870, la France connaît des avancées spectaculaires qui la font entrer dans la modernité et dans la révolution industrielle. Que ce soit dans les sciences et techniques, les arts et la littérature, la politique, la vie quotidienne, l’éducation et la santé, l’architecture et l’urbanisme, le Second Empire a transfiguré la France. Xavier Mauduit et Corinne Ergasse nous invitent à redécouvrir, avec plaisir, l’histoire méconnue de ces vingt années flamboyantes. Parmi ses nombreuses escales, ce voyage à travers le temps nous conduit notamment à Paris, que le baron Haussmann transforme en ville lumière ; à Compiègne, pour assister aux somptueuses réceptions du régime ; à Bordeaux, qui envoie ses meilleurs crus à l’Exposition universelle de 1855 pour leur premier classement ; à Deauville, où le duc de Morny crée la station balnéaire emblématique du développement des lieux de villégiature, et partout en France où les hommes ont cru le progrès sans limite.

Dans cet ouvrage, au modèle de Flamboyant Second Empire, Xavier Mauduit et Cédric Lemagnent nous invitent à un passionnant et étonnant voyage dans le monde des impressionnistes. Chaque année des centaines de milliers de visiteurs se rendent dans les musées français pour voir leurs tableaux (627 000 par an pour la maison de Monet à Giverny). Nous connaissons tous leurs plus grandes oeuvres, mais que savons-nous vraiment de la vie de ces artistes qui révolutionnèrent la peinture et, de façon plus générale, la manière de voir le monde ? Ce livre, truffé d'anecdotes, nous dresse un portrait sans concession des artistes impressionnistes et démonte un grand nombre d'idées reçues.

"In this absolutely powerful and innovative book, Priscilla Parkhurst Ferguson illuminates the complex links between the Revolution of 1789, the different revolutions that took place in 19th-century Paris, and two aesthetic forms characteristic of the cultural discourses of modernity: panoramic journalism and the realist and historical novels authored by Balzac, Flaubert, Hugo, Zola, and Valles. A work of cultural history with stimulating implications, "Paris as Revolution" is well-structured, carefully argued and problematized, and compelling in its scholarship."--Catherine Nesci, author of "La Femme mode d'emploi" "A fascinating and richly suggestive essay on the cultural geography of nineteenth-century Paris. It is imaginatively conceived, broad in its reach, boldly interdisciplinary. Ferguson's success in combining literary criticism, historical interpretation and sociological analysis to reconstruct the shifting meanings given to the experiences of urbanization and revolution is most impressive."--Jonathan Beecher, author of "Charles Fourier: The Visionary and His World"

"Plague in Poland called a temporary halt to the turbulent career of Prince Ferenc Rakoczi II of Transylvania. A dramatic flight from Danzig, a stormy voyage up a pirate-infested Baltic and a crossing of a North sea menaced by French privateers brought him and his tiny retinue to Hull, where his ship was placed in quarantine; the Transylvanians - one of them the author of this book - were obliged to spend Christmas 1711 at anchor in the Humber estuary." "There was in Ferenc II's retinue a young nobleman named Kelemen Mikes. He was widely read in Latin and French, and left no small corpus of translations of philosophical works, together with the present book, his only piece of original writing. The Letters from Turkey are addressed to an aunt living in Pera, a suburb of Constantinople (the modern Beyoglu in Istanbul), but no such person can be shown to have existed, and in fact the work is a memoir in the form of 207 letters, written at irregular intervals over forty-one years." "The range of topics covered in the Letters is extensive. Some are on purely domestic themes, revealing the hopelessness of the prospect of seeing Hungary again, Mikes' thwarted desire to be married, the boredom of the quasi-monastic routine that Rakoczi imposed on his exiled court and the impossibility of befriending the neighbours. There are descriptions of various places and events, discussions of silk-worm farming and the propagation of wheat, comments on the education of boys and girls - Mikes is an early feminist - and accounts of political activity in Turkey and abroad, together with a campaign up the Danube and an embassy to Wallachia."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Of American and German parentage, Ernst Hanfstaengl graduated from Harvard and ran the family business in New York for a dozen years before returning to Germany in 1921. By chance he heard a then little-known Adolf Hitler speaking in a Munich beer hall and, mesmerized by his extraordinary oratorical power, was convinced the man would some day come to power. As Hitler’s fanatical theories and ideas hardened, however, he surrounded himself with rabid extremists such as Goering, Hess, and Goebbels, and Hanfstaengl became estranged from him. But with the Nazi’s major unexpected political triumph in 1930, Hitler became a national figure, and he invited Hanfstaengl to be his foreign press secretary. It is from this unique insider’s position that the author provides a vivid, intimate view of Hitler—with his neuroses, repressions, and growing megalomania—over the next several years. In 1937, four years after Hitler came to power, relations between Hanfstaengl and the Nazis had deteriorated to such a degree that he was forced to flee for his life, escaping to Switzerland. Here is a portrait of Hitler as you’ve rarely seen him.

Nedjma is a masterpiece of North African writing. Its intricate plot involves four men in love with the beautiful woman whose name serves as the title of the novel. Nedjma is the central figure of this disorienting novel, but more than the unfortunate wife of a man she does not love, more than the unwilling cause of rivalry among many suitors, Nedjma is the symbol of Algeria. Kateb has crafted a novel that is the saga of the founding ancestors of Algeria through the conquest of Numidia by the Romans, the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, and French colonial conquest. Nedjma is symbolic of the rich and sometimes bloody past of Algeria, of its passions, of its tenderness; it is the epic story of a human quest for freedom and happiness.

My name is Lottie Biggs and in three weeks time, I will be fifteen years old. At school, most people call me Lottie Not-Very-Biggs. I’ve never found this particularly funny . . . My current hair colour is Melody Deep Plum which is not as nice as Melody Forest Flame but definitely better than the dodgy custard colour I tried last week . . . And this is my book – it’s about important things like boys and shoes and polo-neck knickers and rescuing giraffes and NOT fancying Gareth Stingecombe (even though he has manly thighs) and hanging-out with your best friend having A BLATANTLY FUNNY TIME. It is definitely not about sitting in wardrobes or having a mental disturbance of any kind! Painfully honest and laugh-so-hard-you-forget-to-breathe funny. The wit of Louise Rennison with the depth of Jacqueline Wilson.

A New York Times Notable Book and winner of the Boston Review Fiction Prize: “[One of the] great novels of this century.” (Donald Newlove, The Philadelphia Inquirer) Hailed as extraordinary from coast to coast, this bestselling novel by National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist Andreï Makine traces a sentimental journey that embraces many of the dramatic events in Russia during the twentieth century. Here is a poignant story of a Soviet boy’s ascent into manhood, and his extraordinary affection for his mysterious grandmother, who captivates him with vivid stories of her childhood in France—a distant country far more elegant, carefree, and stimulating than Russia in the 1970s and ’80s. This epic tale is full of tenderness and passion, pain and heartbreak; mesmerizing, in every way. “Skillfully constructed and elegantly written . . . A major novel.” —Victor Brombert, The New York Times Book Review
