Géographie du français et de la francité en Louisiane by Roland J.-L Breton( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, based on the 1970 U.S. census, concerns Francophones and French influences that are evident, particularly in Louisiana. Four aspects of the question are treated: (1) linguistic minorities in the U.S., especially those of Hispanic and German origin; (2) the history of Franco-Americans; (3) the present state of French in Louisana; and (4) the typically French character of Louisiana. Historically, Franco Americans fall into three groups, namely, the descendents of the Acadians who settled in Louisiana, 19th century immigrants who settled all over the U.S., and the Quebecois who migrated to New England. The discussion of the French in Louisiana covers the three periods in Louisiana history, the three geo-cultural regions of the state, and a demographic study. With regard to the French language, the study treats the varieties of French spoken today, French usage, geographic distribution and language, and the character of Acadiana, or French Louisiana. The Final section of the study deals with the universally-recognized French character of the region, a character that goes beyond language usage. Particular attention is given to French national characteristics, typically French geographic traits and markedly French religious, linguistic, cultural and political influences. Numerous maps and tables are appended. (AMH)
Montagnards d'Afrique noire : les hommes de la pierre et du mil : Haut-Mandara, Nord-Cameroun by Roland J.-L Breton( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in French and Italian and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au nord du Cameroun, dominant les plaines du Tchad et du Sahel, une vingtaine de petites ethnies vivent perchées dans une chaîne d'autant de massifs-forteresses. Rescapées de la très vieille civilisation paléonigritique, elles ont aménagé ces amas de pierres granitiques en terrasses pour y cultiver le mil, à l'abri des invasions, des razzias, des empires, des Etats. Comment, à la fin du XXème siècle, peut se maintenir ce système traditionnel? Roland Breton et Guy Maurette, par missions successives, sur des années, ont parcouru à pied, en toutes saisons, chaque massif, et ont rapporté ce témoignage direct et attentif sur tout un mode de vie venu du fond des âges, et, aujourd'hui, menacé. Le choix et la place des photos, comme la rédaction du texte se répondent afin que, page à page, le lecteur puisse aussi bien, pénétrer visuellement, que déchiffrer intellectuellement, l'univers décrit, expliqué, dévoilé, exposé
