Three decades ago, François Furet famously announced that the French Revolution was over. Napoleon's armies ceased to march around Europe long ago, and Louis XVIII even returned to occupy the throne of his guillotined brother. And yet the Revolution’s memory continues to hold sway over imaginations and cultures around the world. This sway is felt particularly strongly by those who are interested in history: for the French Revolution not only altered the course of history radically, but became the fountainhead of historicism and the origin of the historical mentality. The sixteen essays collected in this volume investigate the Revolution’s intellectual and material legacies. From popular culture to education and politics, from France and Ireland to Poland and Turkey, from 1789 to the present day, leading historians expose, alongside graduate students, the myriad ways in which the Revolution changed humanity’s possible futures, its history, and the idea of history. They attest to how the Revolution has had a continuing global significance, and is still shaping the world today.

The Routledge Dictionary of Cultural References in Modern French reveals the hidden cultural dimension of contemporary French, as used in the press, going beyond the limited and purely lexical approach of traditional bilingual dictionaries. Even foreign learners of French who possess a good level of French often have difficulty in fully understanding French articles, not because of any linguistic shortcomings on their part but because of their inadequate knowledge of the cultural references. This cultural dictionary of French provides the reader with clear and concise explanations of the crucial cultural dimension behind the most frequently used words and phrases found in the contemporary French press. This vital background information, gathered here in this innovative and entertaining dictionary, will allow readers to go beyond a superficial understanding of the French press and the French language in general, to see the hidden yet implied cultural significance that is so transparent to the native speaker. Key features: a broad range of cultural references from the historical and literary to the popular and classical, with an in-depth analysis of punning mechanisms. over 3,000 cultural references explained a three-level indicator of frequency over 600 questions to test knowledge before and after reading. The Routledge Dictionary of Cultural References in Modern French is the ideal reference for all undergraduate and postgraduate students of French seeking to enhance their understanding of the French language. It will also be of interest to teachers, translators and Francophiles alike. French students in khâgne, Sciences-Po and schools of journalism will also find this valuable and relevant for their studies.

Human Rights in Crisis uniquely documents recent ideas on democracy and human rights in the current French intellectual, social, and political context, arguing that the French emphasis on the interdependence between democracy and human rights as a tool for the critique and renewal of democracy is a valid contribution to the global debate on the political philosophy and the ethics of human rights. Centering on the work of four prominent, contemporary French political philosophers, Blandine Kriegel, Marcel Gauchet, Luc Ferry, and Etienne Balibar, Geneviève Souillac expertly examines the themes of contestation and reform that are the driving force in the French approach to democracy and human rights.

Fruit d'une vingtaine d'années de recherches sur le rôle joué par les protestants français durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, ce livre s'efforce de dégager la spécificité de leur contribution. Beaucoup s'illustrèrent très tôt dans la Résistance et le secours aux opprimés, un engagement dicté par leur foi et par leur passé de réfractaires et de proscrits. Le rapprochement camisards et maquisards fut souvent effectué dans le Midi cévenol et l'exemple de Marie Durand les inspira certainement. Une approche analytique fait de cet ouvrage un précieux dictionnaire à triple entrée. On y trouve en effet une centaine d'articles rédigés à partir de mots-clefs (Maquis, Cimade...), de grands thèmes (Résistance, Non-Violence...), de lieux de mémoire et de nombreux témoignages, comme sur le général de Gaulle, qui offrent un solide panorama de la période. Puis, un répertoire biographique rassemble 1 500 personnes, des plus célèbres (le pasteur Boegner, André Philip, Bertie Albrecht, Jean Cavaillès, André Trocmé...) aux héros ordinaires qui, bien souvent, payèrent de leur vie leur fidélité à un idéal. Enfin, un index recense les lieux, les réseaux et les organisations de résistance où se sont illustrées les personnes citées. Une importante contribution à la connaissance d'une période mal connue, par un historien du protestantisme français, lui-même acteur des dramatiques événements qu'il décrit.
