First measures of the coming insurrection by Éric Hazan( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hazan and Kamo push the lessons of the Arab Spring to [what they see as] their next logical step: the eventual fall of failing regimes throughout the West. As multiple crises chip away at the democratic consensus, what should people do to prepare for the coming upheaval? Point by point, Hazan and Kamo explore what must be done in the aftermath of a regime's collapse--how to prevent established powers from re-taking control, how to reorganize society without central authority, and how to build governance according to people's needs"
The Invention of Paris : a history in footsteps by Eric Hazan( Book )

47 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Invention of Paris, radical author and publisher Eric Hazan takes the reader on an exciting and historically rich tour through the construction of Paris, exploring the places and struggles that have marked its growth. Concentrating both on the literary and cultural representations of the city, as well as riots, rebellions and revolutions--throughout the nineteenth century and up until 1968--Hazan acts as a guide who is simultaneously personal and rigorous in tone. Introducing us to characters as varied as Balzac, Baudelaire, Blanqui, Flaubert, Hugo, Manet and Proust, Hazan charts the formation of a Red Paris through the sedimentation of acts and sources of insurgency, and gives us an unparalleled history of the barricade in the life of the city. The Invention of Paris opens a window on a Paris too often hidden beneath tourist kitsch and bourgeois complacency
A people's history of the French Revolution by Éric Hazan( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and French and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The assault on the Bastille, the Reign of Terror, Danton mocking his executioner, Robespierre dispensing a fearful justice, and the archetypal gadfly Marat -- the events and figures of the French Revolution have exercised a hold on the historical imagination for more than 200 years. It has been a template for heroic insurrection and, to more conservative minds, a cautionary tale. In the hands of Eric Hazan, author of The Invention of Paris, the revolution becomes a rational and pure struggle for emancipation. In this new history, the first significant account of the French Revolution in over twenty years, Hazan maintains that it fundamentally changed the Western world -- for the better. Looking at history from the bottom up, providing an account of working people and peasants, Hazan asks, how did they see their opportunities? What were they fighting for? What was the Terror and could it be justified? And how was the revolution stopped in its tracks? The People's History of the French Revolution is a vivid retelling of events, bringing them to life with a multitude of voices. Only in this way, by understanding the desires and demands of the lower classes, can the revolutionary bloodshed and the implacable will of a man such as Robespierre be truly understood." -- Publisher's description
Notes on the occupation : Palestinian lives by Éric Hazan( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the two months Eric Hazan travels in the West Bank cities of Nablus, Qalqilya, and Hebron - a period of calm when "only" a half-dozen or so young men are killed - Hazan meets and talks with, among others, mothers, political leaders, business people, prisoners' families, a bookseller, a doctor, and a feminist activist." "Through Hazan's notes, we are transported to a little-known world; we glimpse what Palestinian family life is like, we see both election and "martyr" posters in the streets, we hear the local morning news on the radio, and we come to understand that the linear separation the term "the wall" suggests is neither straight nor straightforward." "From the surreal sight of an Israeli settler in a T-shirt jogging with the escort of an army jeep to the bitter description of the Oslo peace process by a former mayor of Nablus as a "pseudo-peace process that accelerated the colonization of the West Bank and intensified repression," Notes on the Occupation captures the day-to-day experiences of people from all walks of life living in the forty-year shadow of the occupation."--Jacket
Reflections on anti-semitism by Alain Badiou( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the beginning of the War on Terror, Israel has become increasingly salient to imperial strategy and ever more aggressive in its policies toward the Palestinians. In this context, a key ideological weapon is the cynical accusation of "anti-Semitism." For historical reasons, this has been deployed most forcefully in France, and Alain Badiou and Eric Hazan caustically demolish the "anti-Semitism is everywhere" allegation, used to bludgeon opponents of the Israeli state and those who stand in solidarity with the banlieue youth. Ivan Segre undertakes a meticulous deconstruction of a rampant "reactionary philo-Semitism" that identifies Jewish interests with the "democratic West.""--
A history of the barricade by Eric Hazan( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author traces the many stages in the barricade's evolution, from the Wars of Religion through to the Paris Commune, drawing on the work of thinkers throughout the periods examined to illustrate and bring to life the violent practicalities of revolutionary uprising.--Publisher's description
LQR : la propagande du quotidien by Eric Hazan( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La langue de la politique, la langue publique, c'est-à-dire médiatique, la "lingua quintae Respublicae", est devenue, au cours des années 1990, l'idiome qui explicite et légitime le néolibéralisme. L'accent est mis sur la transformation d'expressions isolées, de tournures, de formes syntaxiques qui sont peu à peu vidés de leur sens, de leur force subversive ou politique
Paris Magnum by Magnum photos( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 235 pictures selected from the 600,000 photographs in the archives of Magnum Photos show Paris in the latter half of the twentieth century, starting just before World War II and ending in the early years of the new millennium."--Page 7
History of the Paris Commune of 1871 by Lissagaray( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1871, the working class of Paris, incensed by their lack of political power and tired of being exploited, seized control of the capital. This book is the outstanding history of the Commune, the heroic battles fought in its defence, and the bloody massacre that ended the uprising. Its author, Lissagaray, was a young journalist who not only saw the events recounted here first-hand, but fought for the Commune on the barricades. He spent the next twenty-five years researching and writing this history, which refutes the slanders levelled at the Communards by the ruling classes and is a vivid and valuable study in urban political revolution, one that retains its power to inspire to this day. -- Back cover
La barricade : histoire d'un objet révolutionnaire by Éric Hazan( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Intermittente par nature et devenue symbole des combats de rue, la barricade est le lieu d'histoires singulières, souvent poignantes. Amas d'objets disparates, barriques (dont elle tire son nom), planches, moellons, charrettes, elle offre à un peuple d'ouvriers, d'enfants, de cantinières le moyen de s'opposer au pouvoir, bouleversant à chaque fois l'espace de la ville. Journée des barricades de 1570, barricades de la Fronde ou des canuts, barricades de la Commune : l'histoire de France, et plus encore celle de Paris, est marquée par ces objets hétéroclites et provisoires. Dans un récit documenté et foisonnant, Eric Hazan livre une passionnante histoire de la révolte populaire dont la barricade est devenue l'emblème. »--
Balzac, Paris by Éric Hazan( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pourquoi Paris, pourquoi pas la constellation provinciale, Issoudun et Guérande, Saumur et Fougères, Besançon et Sancerre? C'est que Paris est à la fois l'épicentre de la Comédie humaine et 'une fille, une amie, une épouse' pour Balzac. Le livre mêle d'ailleurs ces deux aspects : en même temps qu'on voit se déployer la ville de Ferragus, de Diane de Maufrigneuse, de De Marsay et de Rastignac, on suit l'existence de Balzac dans Paris, ses déménagements sous la pression des créanciers, ses démêlés avec ses éditeurs, ses malheurs au théâtre, ses journaux, ses courses dans les rues entre ses imprimeurs, ses marchands de café et ses nombreux amis. Il est par moments comme fondu dans la foule de ses personnages, ducs et pairs, actrices, espions, journalistes, poètes et banquiers. Réaliste, Balzac? 'J'ai maintes fois été étonné que la grande gloire de Balzac fût de passer pour un observateur ; il m'avait toujours semblé que son principal mérite était d'être visionnaire, et visionnaire passionné. Tous ses personnages sont doués de l'ardeur vitale dont il était animé lui-même. Toutes ses fictions sont aussi profondément colorées que les rêves', c'est Baudelaire qui le dit, et c'est aussi ce qui ressort de ce livre, exploration de la cathédrale balzacienne et enquête sur son architecte."--Page 4 of cover

"En compagnie d'un piéton amoureux de Paris, Eric Hazan, parcou-rons le Paris de Balzac, Stendhal, Hugo ou Nerval, un Paris qui resplendit ici dans les tons frais et joyeux des aquarelles et dessins réunis par I'architecte Destailleur et conservés au département des Estampes et de Ia Photographie de la BNF. Ce Paris aux allures de cité encore médiévale, qui enchaîne les révolutions, couronne les empereurs et restaure par deux fois la monarchie, c'est le Paris d'avant Haussmann :du Marais au Quartier latin, du faubourg Saint-Germain au Palais-Royal, du pont des Arts au pont Neuf, des théâtres des Boulevards au Louvre, on circule à cheval, on pêche dans la Seine, on patauge dans Ia boue de rues sans trottoirs, on court les théâtres, on s'installe aux toutes nouvelles terrasses des cafés."--Page 4 of cover

Paris sous tension by Éric Hazan( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in French and Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De la defensa de París del año 1814 a las revueltas que estallaron recientemente en la periferia parisina, pasando por las jornadas de junio de 1848 y de la Comuna de 1871, por el París de los desarrapados de Baudelaire, por los oscuros días de la Ocupación nazi o por las discutibles y últimas «renovaciones» de la ciudad. Una reflexión lúcida e imprescindible sobre la estructura urbanística de París, que analiza sus sucesivas transformaciones en relación a un aspecto concreto: su potencial subversivo y las diversas estrategias que han tratado de aplacarlo a través de la propia reconfiguración de la villa. Gracias a un conocimiento exhaustivo de los diversos barrios de París, así como de la historia política, social y artística de cada uno de esos lugares, Eric Hazan nos propone un ensayo que es, además, una suerte de guía de viaje con la que avanzar, calle a calle, por un París cuya fuerza insurgente se trasforma sin pausa mientras sigue, a un tiempo, intacta
