Il y a 2000 ans, les Romains construisaient un aqueduc de cinquante kilomètres pour alimenter la ville de Nîmes. Prouesse technique, le pont du Gard, inscrit au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, en est l'ouvrage d'art majeur. Comment a-t-il été réalisé ? En combien de temps ? Quelle utilisation de l'eau pouvait justifier un si pharaonique investissement ? Tandis que l'historien Eric Teyssier nous entraîne dans cette étonnante histoire, le photographe Thierry Vezon sublime la part d'imagination que provoque le monument. Le tout au coeur de la nature désormais classée des gorges du Gardon.

Throughout this book, the concept of framing is used to look at art, photography, scientific drawings and cinema as visually constituted, spatially bounded productions. The way these genres relate to that which exists beyond the frame, by means of plastic, chemically transposed, pencil-sketched or moving images allows us to decipher the particular language of the visual and at the same time circumscribe the dialectic between presence and absence that is proper to all visual media. Yet, these kinds of re-framing owe their existence to the ruptures and upheavals that marked the demise of certain discursive systems in the past, announcing the emergence of others that were in turn overturned.

"A paradigm-smashing chronicle of joyous entanglement that will make you acknowledge your own entanglement in the ancient and ever-new web of being."--Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland. After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again. Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist, by Dr.Suzanne Simard

Le nom d’« Auberge rouge », depuis bientôt deux siècles, est devenu le symbole d’un gîte louche dont on n’est pas certain de ressortir vivant. Ce fut aussi le nom d’une retentissante affaire criminelle : trois personnes finirent guillotinées en 1833, Pierre Martin, dit Le Blanc, sa femme, Marie, et le commis Jean Rochette. Leur bastide de Peyrebeille, en Ardèche, servait depuis vingt ans d’hostellerie pour les chasseurs et voyageurs locaux. Dès la fin des années 1820, des rumeurs coururent sur ce lieu prospère : des individus ensanglantés, aperçus dans les parages, y avaient échappé à des tentatives de meurtre, mais refusaient de parler. En 1831, la disparition d’Anjolras, parent de Martin, déclenchait l’affaire... Pendant près de deux siècles, presque tous ceux qui se sont intéressés à cette tragédie se sont convaincu de la culpabilité des aubergistes, qui auraient dévalisé et assassiné des dizaines de voyageurs trop confiants. Reprenant le dossier, les actes d’accusations et les témoignages, Gerald Messadié en démonte les invraisemblances. Il montre que le principal témoin, un vagabond nommé Laurent Chaze, ne peut avoir été témoin du meurtre présumé d’Anjolras. Les autres dépositions sont tout aussi manifestement fabriquées. Les juges avaient leur opinion forgée d’avance : les Martin et leur domestique devaient être guillotinés. Pourquoi y eut-il tant de témoignages d’aristocrates locaux en faveur du couple ? Et pourquoi tant de voyageurs riches avaient-ils séjourné sans dommage à l’Auberge, tel le baron Haussmann ? Quel est le fond de ce formidable détournement de justice ? Un règlement de comptes politique, qui remonte aux jours les plus noirs de la Révolution et à la Chouannerie ardéchoise. Un conflit sans merci, entre les tenants de l’Ancien Régime et le pouvoir orléaniste, sur fond d’achats de biens confisqués par la Convention et dont Martin, chouan convaincu, aurait rançonné les nouveaux acquérants. Significativement, il fallut attendre la mort de Louis XVIII et l’accession au trône de Louis-Philippe pour voir les langues se délier et pleuvoir les témoignages...

The French Revolution and Historical Materialism

"This text reasserts the Marxist view of the French Revolution as a bourgeois and capitalist revolution. Based mainly on articles published in the journal Historical Materialism it challenges the still dominant revisionist view of the French Revolution. It serves to restore the close tie between the history of the Old Regime and the Revolution. It demonstrates that the rise of a bourgeois capitalist class has a long history dating back to the sixteenth century. Moreover, it shows that the Revolution itself played a large role in strengthening the bourgeoisie politically and economically while bringing about the unification of financial and productive capital. Indeed, it shows that the rising of the masses during the Revolution, viewed by revisionism as economically regressive, in fact helped to bring about the consolidation of capitalism"--Publisher description.

A Frenchman flees his small mountain village to avoid service in World War I in a thoughtful, witty novel about the conflict of patriotism and conscience. Deep in the Cévennes Mountains of southern France, a man called Roux refuses to heed the call to duty at the outbreak of war in 1914. Instead, he flees and hides in the hills, returning only occasionally to the farm where he left his mother and sisters. The people of the valley condemn his desertion and hope the police will find his hideout and force him into the army. Then, as the months and the years go by, and the horrors of the trenches become known, the locals begin to understand Roux’s actions—but it is only at the end of the war that his fate will be decided. In an atmospheric and often witty novel of life during wartime in a rural French community, André Chamson explores the questions of perception and morality, as well as the roles we play in the great historical events of our times.

“This is surely the best historical novel in many years,” wrote Peter S. Prescott in Newsweek about Death of the Fox, George Garrett’s unparalleled reentry, into the heart of the English Renaissance. His new novel, The Succession, is surely the finest since: a triumph of intellect and imagination that once more brilliantly re-creates Elizabethan England. After decades of rule, Elizabeth I lies dying. She has overcomes the Spanish, the Pope, power-hungry noblemen, even her beloved Essex. England is prospering under her; she is, they say, married to it. Who will succeed her? Who can? To read The Succession is to be plunged into the last days of this great age, to experience its humanity, color, pageantry, and drama; its grandeur, squalor, splendor, and folly. And to better imagine the procession that came before us (in any land) and the succession to follow.
