Together they kick-started the world motor industry and created a tourist industry around the motor car and their now legendary "Michelin Guides &

"For the first thirty years of the twentieth century, the streets surrounding the intersection of the boulevard du Montparnasse and the boulevard Raspail marked the center of avant-garde Europe.

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 468 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

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La Rive gauche : du Front populaire à la guerre froide by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
22 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in French and English and held by 236 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"
Gustave Flaubert by Herbert R Lottman ( Book )
18 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in French and Spanish and held by 181 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
