Paul Lafargue and the flowering of French socialism, 1882-1911 by Leslie Derfler( )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 1,570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Lafargue, the disciple and son-in-law of Karl Marx, helped to found the first French Marxist party in 1882. Over the next three decades, he served as the chief theoretician and propagandist for Marxism in France. During these years - which ended with the dramatic suicides of Lafargue and his wife - French socialism, and the Marxist party within it, became a significant political force. Leslie Derfler explores Lafargue's political strategies, specifically his break with party co-founder Jules Guesde in the Boulanger and Dreyfus episodes and over the question of socialist syndicalist relations. Derfler shows Lafargue's importance as both political activist and theorist. He describes Lafargue's role in the formulation of such strategies as the promotion of a Second Workingmen's International, the pursuit of reform within the framework of the existent state but opposition to any socialist participation in nonsocialist governments, and the subordination of trade unionism to political action. He emphasizes Lafargue's pioneering efforts to apply Marxist methods of analysis to questions of anthropology, aesthetics, and literary criticism
The Dreyfus affair by Leslie Derfler( )

8 editions published between 1965 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On October 15, 1894, Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish artillery captain attached to the French General Staff, was arrested on charges of having betrayed his country by selling military secrets to the Germans. He was convicted of treason by military court-martial and sentenced to life imprisonment on Devil's Island, but over the next 12 years a small group of human rights supporters was able to clear him and identify the real traitor, and Dreyfus was pardoned. The most sensational case in French history, it pitted national security interests against individual rights, exposed the anti-Semitism that permeated France, and influenced the course of Europe as it rumbled toward the first of two world wars. This work provides the first comprehensive examination of this incident for students, including a narrative historical overview, essays on major aspects of the event, lengthy biographical profiles of the key players, the text of important primary documents contemporary to the time, a timeline of the event and list of French presidents and ministers of war during the Affair, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography of print and electronic sources and films suitable for students. This is an idea resource for student use."--Jacket

Yitzhak Rabin : a political biography by Leslie Derfler( )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review: "Dr. Derfler's study of Rabin represents a significant contribution to our understanding of this important Israeli leader. Derfler's treatment of Rabin's role in the events leading up to 1967, as well as his interpretation of how Rabin laid the foundations of the Sadat-Begin accord, will be surprising to many students of Israeli history. Recommended reading."--Henry Abramson, Dean of Academic Affairs and Student Services, Touro College South, USA

Political resurrection in the twentieth century : the fall and rise of political leaders by Leslie Derfler( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Derfler explores the patterns in the lives of three twentieth-century heads of state who fell from power, then rose again: Charles de Gaulle, Juan Peron, and Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Charles de Gaulle of France, Juan Peron of Argentina, and Pierre Elliott Trudeau of Canada all achieved the pinnacle of political power, fell from or relinquished power, and then, after a period in the political wilderness, regained their power. By placing greater emphasis than that customarily accorded by biographers on the interment that followed their fall and preceded their resurrection, Derfler describes what they did, the lessons they learned, and the mistakes made by their successors that facilitated their reentry
