The personal history of journalist Henri Alleg is tied inextricably to the history of the French-Algerian Conflict. Best known for his book The Question, a first-hand account of his torture by French troops during the Algerian war for independence, Alleg is famous both for having brought the issue of French torture to the public eye and for his passionate work as a writer, a newspaperman, and a communist activist. Beginning with his arrival in Algiers in 1939, when he fell immediately in love with the vibrant city, to his departure in 1965, after Boumédienne seized power, this is a critical work of history made devastatingly personal. Algerian Memoirs recounts his experience under the Vichy regime and such watershed moments in colonial history as the infamous Battle of Algiers. In these pages, he relives the violence and the summary executions, the communist struggle, and his party's strained relations with the National Liberation Front. And, of course, he revisits in stark detail his arrest and torture by the French, his years in prison, and eventual escape to Czechoslovakia. In the telling of his own story, Alleg explores some of the key events in the history of Europe and North Africa and in the history of the radical press. This is an irreplaceable document of colonialism and its tragic aftermath.

This collection offers a new reflection on rape in war time through 15 case studies, ranging from Greece to Nigeria. It questions the specificity of rape as a universal transgression, its place in memories of war, its legacies, including children born from rape, and the challenge of writing about intimate violence as both a scientist and a human.

Le samedi 24 avril 1915, à Constantinople, 600 notables arméniens sontarrêtés et jetés sur les routes de la déportation. Commence alors le premiergénocide du XXe siècle. 1,5 million d'Arméniens périssent,principalement sur leurs terres historiques d'Anatolie Orientale. Parmi ceuxqui survécurent, certains gagneront l'éphémère Ire Républiqued'Arménie. Lâchée politiquement, cernée militairement, étrangléeéconomiquement, elle deviendra finalement une des républiques de l'UnionSoviétique. D'autres Arméniens gagneront, dès 1921, des rivages plus cléments.Débarqués à Marseille, ils constitueront une main-d'oeuvre docile dans la Franced'après-guerre.Et lorsqu'éclatera la Seconde Guerre Mondiale, la plupart d'entre euxn'hésiteront pas à combattre l'occupant, armes à la main, que ce soit enFrance, dans les rangs de l'Armée Rouge ou ailleurs.C'est alors qu'après une longue période de silence, des cris s'élèvent àErevan le 24 avril 1965 : « Nos terres !Justice! Résolvez la question arménienne ! »Cinquante ans après l'apocalypse, les habitants de la capitale arméniennecommencent le combat pour la reconnaissance du génocide par les États et parl'héritière de l'Empire ottoman : la Turquie.Un siècle plus tard, l'auteur, d'origine arménienne, se plonge dans lepassé de l'Arménie et de ces souvenirs douloureux. Un essai qui permet de comprendre l'histoire et la mémoire de ce pays,alors que le débat autour de la mémoire du génocide a fait couler beaucoupd'encre en France. Hélène Kosséian, coauteur du documentaire Arménie. La Renaissance réalisépar Robert Kéchichian, elle a publié son premier livre aux côtés de d'ArsèneTchakarian en 2012 aux éditions du Rocher : Les commandos de l'afficherouge.

"Césaire's essay stands as an important document in the development of third world consciousness--a process in which [he] played a prominent role." --Library Journal This classic work, first published in France in 1955, profoundly influenced the generation of scholars and activists at the forefront of liberation struggles in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Nearly twenty years later, when published for the first time in English, Discourse on Colonialism inspired a new generation engaged in the Civil Rights, Black Power, and anti-war movements and has sold more than 75,000 copies to date. Aimé Césaire eloquently describes the brutal impact of capitalism and colonialism on both the colonizer and colonized, exposing the contradictions and hypocrisy implicit in western notions of "progress" and "civilization" upon encountering the "savage," "uncultured," or "primitive." Here, Césaire reaffirms African values, identity, and culture, and their relevance, reminding us that "the relationship between consciousness and reality are extremely complex. . . . It is equally necessary to decolonize our minds, our inner life, at the same time that we decolonize society." An interview with Césaire by the poet René Depestre is also included.
