American vertigo : traveling America in the footsteps of Tocqueville by Bernard Henri Lévy ( Book )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,466 libraries worldwide
What does it mean to be an American, and what can America be today? Philosopher-journalist Lévy spent a year traveling in the footsteps of Alexis de Tocqueville. The result is a fresh look at a country we sometimes only think we know. From Rikers Island to Chicago mega-churches, from Muslim communities in Detroit to an Amish enclave in Iowa, Lévy investigates issues at the heart of our democracy: the nature of American patriotism, the coexistence of freedom and religion (including the religion of baseball), the prison system, the health of our political institutions, and much more. Both the grandeur and the hellish dimensions of American life are unflinchingly explored. At a time when Americans are anxious about how the world perceives them and, indeed, keen to make sense of themselves, a brilliant and sympathetic foreign observer has arrived to help us begin a new conversation about the meaning of America.--From publisher description.

Left in dark times : a stand against the new barbarism by Bernard Henri Lévy ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 670 libraries worldwide
"Bernard-Henri Levy, one of the world's leading intellectuals, revisits his political roots, scrutinizes the totalitarianisms of the past as well as those on the horizon, and argues powerfully for a new political and moral vision for our times. Are human rights Western or universal? Does anti-Semitism have a future, and, if so, what will it look like? And how is it that progressives themselves - those who in the past defended individual rights and fought fascism - have now become the breeding ground for new kinds of dangerous attitudes: an unthinking loathing of Israel; an obsessive anti-Americanism; an idea of "tolerance" that, in its justification of Islamic fanaticism, for example, could become the "cemetery of democracies"; and an indifference, masked by relativism, to the greatest human tragedies facing the world today? Illuminating these and other questions, Levy also brings to life his own intellectual autobiography, highlighting the thinkers and politicians he has known and scrutinized and the ideological battles he has fought over thirty years - revealing their bearing on the present." "Above all, Levy offers a powerful new vision for progressives everywhere, one based neither on the failed idealisms of the past nor on their current misguided, bigoted, and dangerously sentimental attachments but on an absolute commitment to combat evil in all its guises. The "new barbarism" Levy compellingly diagnoses is real and must be confronted. At a time of ideological and political transition in America, Left in Dark Times is a polemical, incendiary articulation of the threats we all face - in many cases without our even being aware of it - and a stand against those threats."--BOOK JACKET.

Women and men : a philosophical conversation by Françoise Giroud ( Book )
24 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 8 languages and held by 616 libraries worldwide
During the course of a single summer in Paris, in the shade of a fig tree, a journalist and a philosopher meet to participate in an age-old pastime: the contemplation of love. The result is Women and Men, a book about the relationship between the sexes, but more than that, a book about the nature of longing and the character of the human heart. In ten provocative discussions - presented here exactly as they occurred - Francoise Giroud and Bernard-Henri Levy wrestle with human history's most powerful preoccupations, questions and yearnings which have animated lovers since the beginning of time, inspiring symphonies, volumes of poetry, masterpieces of art and literature, even wars. How do we love those we love, and what are the bounds of passion? What, finally, is the nature of desire, what do we most hunger for, most need? The mysteries of romantic love yield themselves up to thrilling scrutiny in these dialogues: seduction, eroticism, the power of beauty, the problem of jealousy, the struggle for fidelity, the wish for pure rapture, and the enduring belief in eternal love. Drawing easily and usefully on an astonishing knowledge of intellectual history - using Stendhal, Proust, Freud, Sartre, and many more as touchstones for their ideas and intuitions - Giroud and Levy achieve a conversational depth and insight in these pages that is a joy to witness, a pleasure to over-hear. Their meditations on love and on the mighty and sometimes mystifying appetites of the human heart and body are both tremendously edifying and great fun.

Adventures on the freedom road : the French intellectuals in the 20th Century by Bernard Henri Lévy ( Book )
26 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 474 libraries worldwide
From the days when Zola and Peguy brandished their pens in pursuit of political action, the question of Literature at the service of Political Commitment has remained a live issue, most of all in France. As this century saw the rise first of Communism, then of Fascism, French intellectuals have hurried to take sides and devote their writings to the good of their chosen Cause. If Breton and some of his fellow-Surrealists, as also Sartre and Aragon, favoured the Left, Bataille, Celine and Drieu La Rochelle were no less passionate advocates of the Far Right. There were also nice shadings of political casuistry as Red veered to Pink and eventually even to True Blue; Malraux was one of the great men to skate across the spectrum.
