Bruno Latour has written a unique and wonderful tale of a technological dream gone wrong. As the young engineer and professor follow Aramis' trail--conducting interviews, analyzing documents, assessing the evidence--perspectives keep shifting: the truth is revealed as multilayered, unascertainable, comprising an array of possibilities worthy of Rashomon. The reader is eventually led to see the project from the point of view of Aramis, and along the way gains insight into the relationship between human beings and their technological creations. This charming and profound book, part novel and part sociological study, is Latour at his thought-provoking best.

Voici l’ouvrage de référence sur la Première Guerre mondiale. Sous la direction de Jay Winter, professeur à l’université de Yale, avec le Centre internationale de recherche de l’Historial de la Grande Guerre et coordonné par Annette Becker, il réunit les plus grands spécialistes internationaux du conflit. Il paraît simultanément chez Fayard et dans la très prestigieuse collection « Cambridge History », au Royaume-Uni. Véritable œuvre transnationale, et manifeste d’une génération d’historiens, ce livre englobe tous les espaces et les temps de la guerre qui, si elle est née en Europe, devient très vite mondiale par le jeu des Empires coloniaux des grandes puissances. Premier volume d'une trilogie, Combats montre que la guerre, pensée en différents fronts, a été par bien des aspects totale : les combats, terrestres, aériens, navals et les soldats ne peuvent se comprendre sans les fronts « domestiques », d’occupations, de prisonniers et de réfugiés, dans les usines, les champs et les écoles – questions qui sont au cœur des volumes 2 : Etats, et 3 : Sociétés. A l’heure du centenaire, ce livre, appelé à faire date, porte la plume d’une mémoire encore à vif, en deuil de près de 10 millions de combattants et de centaines de milliers de civils. Il soulève le voile des illusions perdues pour retrouver la guerre, telle qu’elle fut. Jay Winter est professeur d'histoire à l'université de Yale aux Etats-Unis, auteur de nombreux ouvrages, notamment, avec Antoine Prost, de Penser la Grande Guerre (Seuil, 2004) et, plus récemment, d'une biographie de René Cassin (Fayard, 2011). Annette Becker, coordinatrice de l’ouvrage, est professeur d’histoire à l’université de Paris Ouest-Nanterre La Défense et membre senior de l’Institut universitaire de France. Spécialiste des deux guerres mondiales, elle est notamment l’auteur de Apollinaire, une biographie de guerre (Tallandier, 2009) et des Cicatrices rouges, 1914-1918, France et Belgique occupées (Fayard, 2010). Traduit de l’anglais par Jacques Bonnet, Pierre-Emannuel Dauzat, Odile Demange et Sylvie Lucas.

A Hedonist Manifesto

Michael Onfray passionately defends the potential of hedonism to resolve the dislocations and disconnections of our melancholy age. In a sweeping survey of history's engagement with and rejection of the body, he exposes the sterile conventions that prevent us from realizing a more immediate, ethical, and embodied life. He then lays the groundwork for both a radical and constructive politics of the body that adds to debates over morality, equality, sexual relations, and social engagement, demonstrating how philosophy, and not just modern scientism, can contribute to a humanistic ethics. Onfray attacks Platonic idealism and its manifestation in Judaic, Christian, and Islamic belief. He warns of the lure of attachment to the purportedly eternal, immutable truths of idealism, which detracts from the immediacy of the world and our bodily existence. Insisting that philosophy is a practice that operates in a real, material space, Onfray enlists Epicurus and Democritus to undermine idealist and theological metaphysics; Nietzsche, Bentham, and Mill to dismantle idealist ethics; and Palante and Bourdieu to collapse crypto-fascist neoliberalism. In their place, he constructs a positive, hedonistic ethics that enlarges on the work of the New Atheists to promote a joyful approach to our lives in this, our only, world.

This timely new monograph takes as its starting point the provocative contention that Holocaust film scholarship has been marginalized academically despite the crucial role Holocaust film has played in fostering international awareness of the Nazi genocide and scholarly understandings of cinematic power. The book suggests political and economic motivations for this seeming paradox, the ideological parameters of which are evident in debates and controversies over Holocaust films themselves, and around Holocaust culture in general. Lending particular attention to four exemplary Holocaust “art” films (Korczak [Poland, 1990], The Quarrel [Canada, 1990], Entre Nous [France, 1983], and Balagan [Germany, 1994]), this book breaks disciplinary ground by drawing critical connections between public and scholarly debates over Holocaust representation, and the often sophisticated cinematic structures lending aesthetic shape to them in today’s global arena.

This is Leon Malmed’s true story of his and his sister Rachel’s escape from the Holocaust in Occupied France. When their father and mother were arrested in 1942, their courageous and heroic French neighbors volunteered to watch their children until they returned. Leon’s parents were taken first to Drancy, then to Auschwitz-Birkenau, and they never returned. Meanwhile their downstairs neighbors, Henri and Suzanne Ribouleau, gave the children a home and family and sheltered them through subsequent roundups, threats, air raids, and the war’s privations. The courage, sympathy, and dedication of the Ribouleaus and others stand in strong contrast to the collaborations and moral weakness of many of the French authorities. Leon and Rachel each came to America after the war, but always kept their strongest ties to “Papa Henri and Maman Suzanne,” who were honored as “Righteous Among the Nations” by Yad Vashem in 1977. Leon bares his soul in this narrative of love and courage, set against a backdrop of tragedy, fear, injustice, prejudice, and the greatest moral outrage of the modern era. It is a story of goodness triumphing once more over evil.
Algerian War and the French Army, 1954-62

The Algerian War 1954-62 was one of the most prolonged and violent examples of decolonization. At times horribly savage, it was an undeclared war in the sense that no formal declaration of hostilities was ever made. Bringing to an end one hundred and thirty two years of French rule, the Algerian struggle caused the fall of six French prime ministers, the collapse of the Fourth Republic and expulsion of one million French settlers. This volume, bringing together leading experts in the field, focuses on one of the key actors in the drama - the French army. They show that the Algerian War was just as much about conflicts of ideas, beliefs and loyalties as it was about simple military operations. In this way, the collection goes beyond polemic and recrimination to explore the many and varied nuances of what was one of the historically most important of the grand style colonial wars.
