"During the fifteenth-century Wars of the Roses, when the armies of the White Rose of Lancaster fought those of the Red Rose of York for the Crown of England, it was Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, who exercised regal power. It was he who deposed Henry VI and gained the throne for Edward IV and nine years later tried to overthrow him. Having fled to the Continent to muster support, Edward soon returned in strength to crush the Lancastrians and to bring about Warwick's ignominious death at the Battle of Barnet."--Jacket
An intimate history of humanity by Theodore Zeldin( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zeldin studies the problems of modern society in light of demonstrating how individuals pay attention to, or ignore, the experience of previous generations and cultures. Some of his examples are how people have acquired immunity to loneliness, how older fears give rise to new fears, and why people choose a way of life and what they do when it does not wholly satisfy them
Brecht & Cie : sexe, politique et l'invention du théâtre moderne by John Fuegi( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in French and Undetermined and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fortement contestée lors de sa parution (1994) aux Etats-Unis, cette biographie d'un éminent connaisseur de Brecht est presque un règlement de compte, presque une démolition. Se référant au sous-titre, il rétablit les droits d'auteur de ses femmes qui composèrent son oeuvre, il montre son inconséquence politique, il nie et ironise l'innovation théâtrale et présente l'homme comme un poète médiocre, malpropre et malodorant. Quoiqu'il en soit, un tableau de civilisation, une percée dans le monde dramaturgique et une remise en cause de l'époque

Dans quelles situations faut-il se taire?
