Las dos corrientes políticas mas importantes de la actualidad parecen llevarnos a socialismos nacionalistas y autoritarios, ligados, indudablemente, a economías de penuria. Por lo menos, así ha ocurrido hasta ahora. ¿Cuáles son las causas de esta evolución? ¿Pueden y deben las democracias capitalistas reformarse de manera que sean capaces de trazar un programa para hacerles frente?

Analyse critique, réaliste, souvent caustique, d'un élément de la civilisation actuelle: la prépondérance de la connaissance, qui est favorisée par les moyens d'information et de communication. L'auteur, dans son analyse sociopolitique, fait ressortir comment, malgré cela, l'humanité est mal gérée; il insiste sur le mensonge (la falsification de l'information) qui est "la première de toutes les forces qui mènent le monde". Principaux thèmes: le mensonge, la démocratie, le totalitarisme, le fascisme, le racisme, l'idéologie (dont le rôle est de fabriquer des explications), la liberté d'information, le rôle des intellectuels, avec un chapitre sur les enseignants
Anti-Americanism by Jean-François Revel( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the 9/11 attack on the United States, the brief moment of global sympathy for America soon began giving way to blame. Angered by these assaults on a nation he knows and admires, the distinguished French intellectual Jean-Francois Revel has come to America's defense in Anti-Americanism, a book that (paradoxically, given his country's especially vehement attacks on the U.S. and its policies) spent several weeks late last year on top of France's bestseller list." "Revel sees much anti-Americanism simply as anticapitalism in disguise on the part of those - in Europe and the rest of the world - who are still committed to doctrines that, at heart, are illiberal and even totalitarian. In probing the origins of the notion that America is the source of all evil, he shows how these charges ultimately stem from weakness and envy on the part of those who make them and are a neurotic effort to find an easy explanation for Europe's own loss of status in the post-war era."--Jacket

Le décalage profond entre ce qui se répétait partout sur les États-Unis et la réalité de ce pays poussa Jean-François Revel à écrire Ni Marx ni Jésus.cet essai non seulement polémique mais aussi visionnaire, préfigurait déjà que la grande révolution du XXe siècle serait la révolution libérale - et non la révolution socialiste
Comment les démocraties finissent by Jean-François Revel( Book )

46 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in 6 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poursuivant l'oeuvre de sensibilisation amorcée dans ##La tentation totalitaire##, Jean-François Revel tente de secouer la naïveté et l'aveuglement des Occidentaux face à un expansionnisme soviétique déterminé, sournois et constant. Enclines à abdiquer devant la rouerie des Soviétiques, les démocraties glissent insensiblement vers la servitude comme résignée à l'inévitable. Dans ce "bréviaire de la lâcheté", Revel secoue la léthargie des pacifistes et s'interroge, inquiet, sur le destin des démocraties qui, à moins d'un sursaut, pourraient bientôt n'avoir été qu'un trop bref accident de l'histoire
