Réseaux parallèles, fonds secrets, barbouzeries, intox et manipulations : les stéréotypes ont la vie dure dès qu'il s'agit d'évoquer le caméléon de la Françafrique et des officines gaullistes. Ce mythe, Foccart l'a ciselé avec soin jusqu'à sa mort en 1997. Dès lors, comment faire la part des choses entre la vérité de l'homme et sa légende noire ? Comment dénouer l'écheveau d'une vie nimbée de mystères et de faux-semblants ? Voici la première biographie historique qui, loin des fantasmes réducteurs, retrace le parcours exceptionnel de cet organisateur de génie doublé d'un homme d'influence qui a toujours considéré que la fin justifie les moyens. Héros de la Résistance, Foccart joue un rôle capital dans le retour au pouvoir du général de Gaulle en 1958. Cloisonnant avec obsession son existence, il est au cœur des réseaux qui combattent, par tous les moyens, les nationalistes algériens du FLN puis les commandos de l'OAS. L'affaire de la mystérieuse disparition, en plein Paris, de l'opposant marocain Mehdi Ben Barka assoit un peu plus sa réputation sulfureuse. Son image de " Monsieur Afrique " du Général puis de Georges Pompidou et enfin, dans une moindre mesure, de Jacques Chirac, ne s'impose que progressivement. Plus l'image de la Françafrique devient négative, plus Jacques Foccart est présenté sous les traits du " parrain ", une sorte de père fondateur de relations franco-africaines viciées depuis l'époque des indépendances. Mais ce portrait caricatural n'a qu'un très lointain rapport avec la réalité... Une biographie haletante et nourrie d'archives inédites sur l'homme le plus secret de la Ve République.

" M. Jacques Foccart a été et reste sans nul doute un des personnages les plus mystérieux de la Ve République. Le pouvoir occulte qu'on lui a prêté en a même fait un mythe. Le nom de Foccart a toujours été lié aux activités non officielles du pouvoir gaulliste, qu'il s'agisse de la lutte contre l'OAS, du SAC ou des services spéciaux. Rien ne paraissait pourtant prédisposer cet homme à devenir un collaborateur si proche du général de Gaulle qu'il en est devenu, aux yeux de ses fidèles, mais aussi de ses opposants, comme l'ombre même... " Ainsi s'exprime en 1982 le rapporteur de la commission d'enquête parlementaire sur le SAC. Telle est aussi la figure centrale du nouveau livre de Pierre Péan, à la confluence de tous ses centres d'intérêt: les affaires africaines, l'histoire secrète de ces dernières décennies, les services spéciaux, l'argent noir, les réseaux d'influence et les polices parallèles, sans oublier le terroir chouan dont l'auteur est originaire à l'instar de son personnage principal. Celui-ci, de fait, a été l'homme le plus puissant et le plus mal connu de la Ve République. Cofondateur et patron du parti gaulliste, le RPF, lors de la " traversée du désert " d'avant 1958, il devint ensuite le " grand vizir " de la politiqueafricaine de la France pendant près de vingt ans, et, bien qu'il s'en défende, il ne cessa dans le même temps d'avoir la haute main, soit directement, soit indirectement, sur l'action des services secrets français. Personnage énigmatique, ultra-protégé, on a dit à son propos qu'il était l'éminence grise et le collaborateur le plus proche de De Gaulle. Comme tel, certains membres de la CIA ont vu en lui un espion à la solde de Moscou, l'OAS, un traître pro-FLN, et il n'est pas une grande affaire _ affaire Ben Barka, affaire Markovic, affaire Boulin, etc. _ à propos de laquelle son nom, à un titre ou à un autre, n'ait pas été prononcé. En ce temps de commémorations gaulliennes, Pierre Péan, au terme d'une enquête de plusieurs années, apporte sur ce personnage considérable _ et son entourage _ des révélations pour le moins surprenantes qui donnent à certains chapitres de cette vie une dimension proprement romanesque. Pierre Péan, journaliste-écrivain, est notamment l'auteur de Les deux bombes, affaires africaines, V (l'affaire des avions renifleurs), Secret d'Etat, L'Argent noir.

In 2013 almost half of Africa's top aid recipients were ruled by authoritarian regimes. While the West may claim to promote democracy and human rights, in practice major bilateral and international donors, such as USAID, DFID, the World Bank and the European Commission, have seen their aid policies become ever more entangled with the survival of their authoritarian protégés. Local citizens thus find themselves at the receiving end of a compromise between aid agencies and government elites, in which development policies are shaped in the interests of maintaining the status quo. Aid and Authoritarianism in Africa sheds light on the political intricacies and moral dilemmas raised by the relationship between foreign aid and autocratic rule in Africa. Through contributions by leading experts exploring the revival of authoritarian development politics in Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Cameroon, Mozambique and Angola, the book exposes shifting donor interests and rhetoric as well as the impact of foreign aid on military assistance, rural development, electoral processes and domestic politics. In the process, it raises an urgent and too often neglected question: to what extent are foreign aid programmes actually perpetuating authoritarian rule?

La 4e de couverture indique : "Le rôle du général de Gaulle dans le processus qui a conduit les états francophones de l’Afrique subsaharienne à l’indépendance et à la décolonisation, a fait déjà l’objet de nombreuses publications. Mais, plus d’un demi-siècle après, la recherche n’a pas fini de scruter cette période. Le lecteur trouvera ici à la fois les analyses d’historiens spécialistes et les recherches de praticiens du droit, de l’administration, de la finance et de la diplomatie, qui euxmêmes étaient souvent aussi des témoins. Connaître le rôle du général de Gaulle, c’est aussi mesurer la part de ceux qui furent de fidèles collaborateurs comme Jean Foyer ou Jacques Foccart, et des partenaires comme Léopold Sédar Senghor ou des adversaires comme Ahmed Sékou Touré. On comprendra mieux ainsi l’approche personnelle d’un Charles de Gaulle qui, sans que rien ne l’y prédisposât, au terme d’un apprentissage de l’Afrique commencé au Cameroun, au Tchad et au Congo, depuis août 1940 jusqu’à ses derniers voyages africains de 1958 et 1959, n’a cessé de porter sur ce continent et ses peuples un regard amical, marqué de fulgurances et de réticences, non dénué parfois d’un scepticisme désabusé. Jusqu’à son départ en 1969, cette relation affective a scellé une forme de fidélité chaleureuse et réciproque qui a résisté aux péripéties."

This is the first general study of Gaullism to appear for a generation and takes the party's survival for its central theme. Opening with a narrative approach that highlights the impact of personal rivalries on the party's history since 1969, Andrew Knapp then analyzes the underpinnings of its continued strength in its electoral appeal, its organizational strength, its role in government at both local and national level, and its changing ideology.

A twentieth-century innovation, foreign aid has become a familiar and even expected element in international relations. But scholars and government officials continue to debate why countries provide it: some claim that it is primarily a tool of diplomacy, some argue that it is largely intended to support development in poor countries, and still others point out its myriad newer uses. Carol Lancaster effectively puts this dispute to rest here by providing the most comprehensive answer yet to the question of why governments give foreign aid. She argues that because of domestic politics in aid-giving countries, it has always been—and will continue to be—used to achieve a mixture of different goals. Drawing on her expertise in both comparative politics and international relations and on her experience as a former public official, Lancaster provides five in-depth case studies—the United States, Japan, France, Germany, and Denmark—that demonstrate how domestic politics and international pressures combine to shape how and why donor governments give aid. In doing so, she explores the impact on foreign aid of political institutions, interest groups, and the ways governments organize their giving. Her findings provide essential insight for scholars of international relations and comparative politics, as well as anyone involved with foreign aid or foreign policy.

Ahmadou Kourouma's remarkable novel is narrated by Bingo, a West African sora - storyteller and king's fool. Over the course of five nights he tells the life story of Koyaga, President and Dictator of the Gulf Coast. Orphaned at the age of seven, Koyaga grows up to be a terrible hunter; he fights mythical beasts, and is a shape-shifter, capable of changing himself into beasts and birds. He fights in the French colonial armies, in Vietnam and Algeria, but on his return he mounts a coup and becomes ruler and dictator of the Gulf Coast. For thirty years he runs a corrupt but 'clean' state, surviving repeated assassination attempts and gaining support and investment from abroad. But when the 'First World' decides it no longer want to support dictatorships and call for democracy, he needs another ruse to maintain himself in power... Part magic, part history, part savage satire, Waiting for the Wild Beasts to Vote is nothing less than a history of post-colonial Africa itself.

DIVArlette Farge’s Le Goût de l’archive is widely regarded as a historiographical classic. While combing through two-hundred-year-old judicial records from the Archives of the Bastille, historian Farge was struck by the extraordinarily intimate portrayal they provided of the lives of the poor in pre-Revolutionary France, especially women. She was seduced by the sensuality of old manuscripts and by the revelatory power of voices otherwise lost. In The Allure of the Archives, she conveys the exhilaration of uncovering hidden secrets and the thrill of venturing into new dimensions of the past. Originally published in 1989, Farge’s classic work communicates the tactile, interpretive, and emotional experience of archival research while sharing astonishing details about life under the Old Regime in France. At once a practical guide to research methodology and an elegant literary reflection on the challenges of writing history, this uniquely rich volume demonstrates how surrendering to the archive’s allure can forever change how we understand the past./div

The Experiment Must Continue is a beautifully articulated ethnographic history of medical experimentation in East Africa from 1940 through 2014. In it, Melissa Graboyes combines her training in public health and in history to treat her subject with the dual sensitivities of a medical ethicist and a fine historian. She breathes life into the fascinating histories of research on human subjects, elucidating the hopes of the interventionists and the experiences of the putative beneficiaries. Historical case studies highlight failed attempts to eliminate tropical diseases, while modern examples delve into ongoing malaria and HIV/AIDS research. Collectively, these show how East Africans have perceived research differently than researchers do and that the active participation of subjects led to the creation of a hybrid ethical form. By writing an ethnography of the past and a history of the present, Graboyes casts medical experimentation in a new light, and makes the resounding case that we must readjust our dominant ideas of consent, participation, and exploitation. With global implications, this lively book is as relevant for scholars as it is for anyone invested in the place of medicine in society.
