This is the remarkable story of how two brothers - Edouard and Andre Michelin - turned a sleepy, family tyre firm in the heart of rural France into one of the most innovative and successful industrial empires in the world. Edouard, a landscape painter at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, displayed an engineering genius for tyre-making and product innovation, whilst Andre, trained as an engineer, displayed a creative genius for advertising and marketing.

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Man Ray, the renowned photographer, was there to document it all. His world was filled with artists, writers, and poets, and his camera was his key, allowing him access to cafes, salons, artists' studios, and writers' homes. Within a year of his arrival, he was invited to be Gertrude Stein's official portraitist and to record the image of Marcel Proust on his deathbed. He photographed Pablo Picasso and Peggy Guggenheim, made films alongside the Dadaists, and played chess with Marcel Duchamp. Illustrated with Man Ray's own photographs, this book chronicles a legendary time and place."--BOOK JACKET
Jules Verne : an exploratory biography by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on previously unpublished letters and papers, Herbert R. Lottman reveals Jules Verne, the pioneer of the science fiction genre and the uncannily accurate forecaster of twentieth-century invention, in an entirely new light. In this groundbreaking biography, Lottman explores the dark, private side of the visionary writer. In his long-lost novel, Paris in the Twentieth Century (published in France in 1994, and in the United States in early 1997), Verne predicted a

The French Rothschilds : the great banking dynasty through two turbulent centuries by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There have been a number of books on the Rothschilds, but never one that focused so closely on the French branch of the family. Yet the French Rothschilds, with their eventful careers in both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and the anti-Semitism they faced; their contribution to the settlement of Palestine; the assaults they endured from first the Petain regime and later the Mitterrand Socialists; and their famous racehorses and prestigious wines, are in many respects the most fascinating branch of this astonishing family
Detours from the grand tour by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La Rive gauche : du Front populaire à la guerre froide by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
21 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in French and English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur décrit son ouvrage comme une histoire politique plutôt que littéraire. Il précise qu'il traite en priorité d'histoire culturelle et décrit les guerres politico-littéraires parisiennes (de la Rive gauche) entre 1930 et 1950. L'influence de cette "Rive gauche" dépassait très largement les frontières de la France. Les écrivains "engagés" de gauche font l'objet d'une attention beaucoup plus soutenue que les écrivains catholiques (Mounier, Fumet, etc.). Parmi les écrivains de droite, Lottman se limite pratiquement à ceux qui basculeront, en 1940, dans la collaboration. Si, comme le souligne Christian Jelen, Lottman ne s'attarde pas sur les idéologies qui sous-tendent les engagements politiques (communisme/fascisme) qu'il décrit, il prouve - grâce aux techniques anglo-saxonnes d'enquête - que "les périodes d'engagement politique les plus intenses ont été les plus pauvres en créations littéraires"
The people's anger : justice and revenge in post-liberation France by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gustave Flaubert by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in French and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Carte minutieuse de la vie de Flaubert (selon Bianciotti du ##Monde##) et rigoureuse synthèse des connaissances biographiques avérées ou controversées à propos de cet auteur (selon ##Lire##), cette biographie à l'américaine, qui refute diverses théories et hypothèses énoncées par Sartre dans ##L'idiot de la famille##, n'en souligne pas moins "les limites et les travers d'une biographie strictement historique" (D. Fernandez). D'ici là à affirmer que Flaubert a été "victime" du biographe de Camus et Pétain
L'épuration, 1943-1953 by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
10 editions published between 1986 and 1994 in French and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pétain by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
9 editions published in 1984 in French and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Colette; sa vie, son œuvre by Jean Larnac ( Book )
11 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Après Camus, Pétain et Flaubert, le biographe américain, parisien d'adoption, prend Colette pour modèle. Il s'attache, comme le signale les ##Notes bibliographiques##, "à la montrer au quotidien, n'omettant aucun de ses côtés négatifs". Une tentative très accessible de juxtaposer, par le biais de la vie et de l'oeuvre, toutes les Colette. Au lecteur de faire son (ses) choix
