The discoverers by Daniel J Boorstin( Book )

8 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in French and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les Découvreurs raconte la plus grande épopée de l'homme : celle de sa quête pour découvrir le monde qui l'entoure. Daniel Boorstin s'écarte de la manière traditionnelle de raconter l'histoire de notre monde et nous fait découvrir sous un jour nouveau des noms familiers : Hérodote, Ptolémée, Marco Polo, Copernic, Newton, Marx, Freud. Il ressuscite également quelques figures oubliées de l'histoire. Pour quelles raisons les Chinois n'ont-ils pas découvert l'Amérique? Pourquoi les peuples ont-ils mis si longtemps à apprendre que la terre tourne autour du soleil? Comment a débuté l'étude des sciences économiques? Quand et pourquoi les peuples ont-ils commencé à fouiller la terre pour connaître le passé? Telles sont quelques-unes des questions auxquelles répond ce livre
French Baroque music from Beaujoyeulx to Rameau by James R Anthony( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in French and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James R. Anthony's French Baroque Music, originally published in 1974, was the first definitive study of French music of the Baroque era and remains the only comprehensive survey of the vast musical output of 17th and 18th-century France. Completely revised and expanded, this new edition incorporates research of the past two decades and includes a wealth of quotations from early writers on the subject. As in the previous English language editions of 1974 and 1978 (and in the French editions of 1981 and 1992), the book provides an overview of French music of the period. Anthony explores music of the stage and of the altar and includes chapters on music for lute, guitar, and keyboard; instrumental music; and vocal chamber music. A revised author's preface considers the present state of research in the area of French Baroque music. Finally, a new and expanded index and an updated bibliography listing more than 1,300 works make this book a superb resource for scholars as well as laymen
Battle cry of freedom : the Civil War era by James M McPherson( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in French and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filled with fresh interpretations and information, puncturing old myths and challenging new ones, this fast-paced narrative fully integrates the political, social, and military events that crowded the two decades from the outbreak of one war in Mexico to the ending of another at Appomattox. Packed with drama and analytical insight, the book vividly recounts the momentous episodes that preceded the Civil War: the Dred Scott decision: the Lincoln-Douglas debates, John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry. It then moves into a chronicle of the war itself, the battles, the strategic maneuvering on both sides, the politics, and the personalities. Particularly notable are new views on such matters as the slavery expansion issue in the 1850s, the origins of the Republican Party, the causes of secession, internal dissent and anti-war opposition in the North and the South, and the reasons for the Union's victory. The book's title refers to the sentiments that informed both the Northern and Southern views of the conflict: the South seceded in the name of that freedom of self-determination and self-government for which their fathers had fought in 1776, while the North stood fast in defense of the Union founded by those fathers as the bulwark of American liberty. Eventually, the North had to grapple with the underlying cause of the war--slavery--and adopt a policy of emancipation as a second war aim. This "new birth of freedom," as Lincoln called it, constitutes the proudest legacy of America's bloodiest conflict. This volume makes sense of that vast and confusing "second American Revolution" we call the Civil War, a war that transformed a nation and expanded our heritage of liberty
