The Jews : history, memory, and the present by Pierre Vidal-Naquet( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Vidal-Naquet, internationally celebrated author of Assassins of Memory: Essays on the Denial of the Holocaust, here takes readers on a fascinating journey through key phases of Jewish history over more than two millennia. Drawing on a vast reservoir of historical knowledge, Vidal-Naquet unravels a series of myths and ideologies that have become entangled with Jewish history over the centuries. The Jews covers subjects as deep in the past as the Jewish encounter with Hellenization in the second century B.C.E., and as current as modern-day Israeli-Palestinian relations. The Jews opens in the classical period, looking in particular at the work of Flavius Josephus, who wrote the original account of the events at Masada. Resisting the powerful currents of ideological orthodoxy, Vidal-Naquet examines what he views as Israeli nationalist distortions of the historical and archaeological record at Masada. In the promotion of an ideal of Jewish unity in the ancient world, he contends, some have chosen to ignore evidence of pluralism, civil strife, and the power of the Diaspora experience in the Jewish past. The book continues with an engaging discussion of the era of Jewish emancipation in Europe, during the French Revolution and thereafter, in which Vidal-Naquet explores the complex meanings of emancipation and assimilation. Employing previously unexamined material written by Alfred Dreyfus himself, he continues with a reevaluation of the Dreyfus affair, the episode of anti-Semitism and betrayal that shook France at the turn of the century. The Jews explores books, films, and eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust, including works by Arno Mayer, Claude Lanzmann, and Primo Levi. The book looks also at a recently published wartime journal by Vidal-Naquet's father, written in the years before he was deported. Vidal-Naquet is equally concerned with the disturbing phenomenon of Holocaust denial, pointing to the question of the gas chambers as central to refuting revisionist claims. The book closes with a personal account of growing up in Vichy France: integrating the tools of historiography with his own vivid memories of the war years, Vidal-Naquet recounts in moving detail the Occupation and the fateful day the Gestapo arrived at his home to take away his parents

32 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in French and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Du site de l'éditeur: "Face à un Eichmann réel, il fallait lutter par la force des armes et, au besoin, par les armes de la ruse. Face à un Eichmann de papier, il faut répondre par du papier. Nous sommes quelques-uns à l'avoir fait et nous le ferons encore. Ce faisant, nous ne nous plaçons pas sur le terrain où se situe notre ennemi. Nous ne le "discutons pas", nous démontons les mécanismes de ses mensonges et de ses faux, ce qui peut-être méthodologiquement utile aux jeunes générations." Ces lignes, qu'écrivait en 1981 l'historien Pierre Vidal-Naquet, gardent toute leur actualité : Robert Faurisson et ceux qui nient avec lui la réalité du génocide hitlérien n'ont pas désarmé, et certains médias continuent à réserver un accueil surprenant à leurs thèses délirantes. Comprendre comment une telle aberration a pu voir le jour est donc plus que jamais nécessaire. Tel est le but des essais réunis dans ce livre."

20 editions published between 1964 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two thousand five hundred years ago, in 507-506 B.C.E., the institutions of Athens were rocked by the reforms of Cleisthenes. With the regrouping of the Athenians into ten tribes, equitably distributed into the space of the city, and the separation of city time from the religious calendar was created the idea of secular civic space and time and the practice of popular government. Although the word did not yet exist, here was the foundation of democracy. First published In French in 1964, Cleistenes the Athenian has become the classic study of the philosophical, political, and aesthetic background and significance of these reforms

Politics ancient and modern by Pierre Vidal-Naquet( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a wide-ranging discussion, Vidal-Naquet shows how the nature of political life in Ancient Greece has been interpreted and re-interpreted throughout the centuries, from the first critics of Greek democracy, through the rediscovery of democratic values in the eighteenth century, to the writings of Marx and Renan. He analyses the distance separating the moderns from the ancients, and argues that people in the eighteenth century were divided over whether to support Sparta or Athens, virtuous austerity or slightly degenerate luxury. He discusses how certain myths, originating in Ancient Greece, were transformed by succeeding generations. Focusing on the myth of Atlantis, he argues that, in the course of three centuries, it has been used to promote various forms of modern nationalism, despite the fact that Plato originally invented it for pedagogical and philosophical purposes
