The psychology of revolution by Gustave Le Bon( )

26 editions published between 1913 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 2,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present age is not merely an epoch of discovery; it is also a period of revision of the various elements of knowledge. Having recognised that there are no phenomena of which the first cause is still accessible, science has resumed the examination of her ancient certitudes, and has proved their fragility. Today she sees her ancient principles vanishing one by one. Mechanics is losing its axioms, and matter, formerly the eternal substratum of the worlds, becomes a simple aggregate of ephemeral forces in transitory condensation. Despite its conjectural side, by virtue of which it to some extent escapes the severest form of criticism, history has not been free from this universal revision. There is no longer a single one of its phases of which we can say that it is certainly known. What appeared to be definitely acquired is now once more put in question. Among the events whose study seemed completed was the French Revolution. Analysed by several generations of writers, one might suppose it to be perfectly elucidated. What new thing can be said of it, except in modification of some of its details? And yet its most positive defenders are beginning to hesitate in their judgments. Ancient evidence proves to be far from impeccable. The faith in dogmas once held sacred is shaken. The latest literature of the Revolution betrays these uncertainties. Having related, men are more and more chary of drawing conclusions. The study of the French Revolution to which a great part of this book is devoted will perhaps deprive the reader of more than one illusion, by proving to him that the books which recount the history of the Revolution contain in reality a mass of legends very remote from reality"--Introduction.

Mohammed and Charlemagne by Henri Pirenne( Book )

28 editions published between 1939 and 2013 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Posthumt arbejde af den belgiske videnskabsmand H. Pirenne 1939 (her i 2. engelske udgave 1954) giver ifølge "The Spectator" en "ny og afgørende forklaring på Europas udvikling fra Konstantin den Store ca. 300 til Karl den Store 800 - Folkevandringernes invasioner ødelagde ikke den gamle Verdens enhed og Romerrigets kultur og det var Islams opkomst der var årsagen til bruddet med den antikke tradition - udviklingens klimax var da Karl den Store gav Vesten et nyt Romerrige 800 - beviset på at Vesten havde brudt med det gamle Romerrige i Byzans."

A history of Europe from the invasions to the XVI century by Henri Pirenne( Book )

24 editions published between 1936 and 2010 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1939, this is a reissue of Henri Pirenne's extremely popular and influential history of Europe in the Middle Ages. It begins with the Barbarian and Musulman invasions in the fifth century AD, which signalled the end of the Roman world in the West, and ends in the middle of the sixteenth century with the Renaissance and the Reformation. Universally praised for its detailed and impartial approach, this reissue will be very welcome news to both students of medieval history and to the general reader seeking a definitive review of the period

Fabre; poet of science by Georges Victor Legros( )

5 editions published between 1913 and 2002 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HERE I offer to the public the life of Jean-Henri Fabre; at once an admiring commentary upon his work and an act of pious homage, such as ought to be offered, while he lives, to the great naturalist who is evento-day so little known. Hitherto it was not easy to speak of Henri Fabre with exactitude. An enemy to all advertisement, he has so discreetly held himself withdrawn that one might almost say that he has encouraged, by his silence, many doubtful or unfounded rumours, which in course of time would become even more incorrect. For example, although quite recently his material situation was presented in the gloomiest of lights, while it had really for some time ceased to be precarious, it is nome the less true that during his whole life he has had to labour prodigiously in order to earn a little money to feed and rear his family, to the great detriment of his scientific inquiries; and we cannot but regret that he was not freed from all material cares at least twenty years earlier than was the case

The world in revolt; a psychological study of our times by Gustave Le Bon( )

19 editions published between 1921 and 2014 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This science, so uncertain in the past, when it confined itself to the domain of pure theory, has become capable of throwing light upon the most difficult problems. Statesmen, generals and manufacturers even invoke its services daily. Although the nature of our feelings has not altered, the aggregations which they are capable of forming, the complex of which constitutes character, have always varied from race to race, which explains why the destinies of the different countries have been so different. It was always dangerous to disregard these differences. The Germans lost the war because they did not understand them. Their blunders in respect of national psychology armed against them nations which asked no better than to remain neutral. The Allies, too, have made blunders of the same nature, especially since the peace. These will be examined in the pages of this book"--Introduction.
