La persistance du Midi blanc
Au cœur du Languedoc méditerranéen, le département de l'Hérault est une place forte du mouvement républicain. Pour qualifier ce particularisme, on évoque l'existence d'un « Midi rouge » sur lequel de nombreux historiens se sont penchés. Face à cette entité politique se dresse un « Midi blanc » méconnu. Il fait preuve d'une vivacité étonnante et freine le développement de la droite « progressiste ». Cet ouvrage présente les ressorts de la culture politique royaliste de la Révolution française jusqu'au début de la Cinquième République. L'étude est bâtie autour des événements traumatiques (serment de 1791, Ralliement de l'Église à la République, Première et Seconde guerres mondiales) qui structurent l'imaginaire et fondent les repères politiques des combats à venir. Elle accorde une attention constante aux acteurs d'une droite appelée « traditionniste », en mettant l'accent sur le poids des milieux catholiques. Philippe Secondy insiste notamment sur la détermination de Monseigneur de Cabrières à la tête du diocèse de Montpellier entre 1874 et 1921. Celui que l'on présente souvent comme l'un des derniers évêques légitimistes de France initie une vaste nébuleuse partisane qui s'emploie à contrer le processus de consolidation du modèle républicain. À partir de l'histoire du Languedoc, l'auteur reconstitue le rôle des grandes familles « réactionnaires », leurs réseaux d'influence à travers plusieurs générations, la dynamique associative qu'elles génèrent, ainsi que leur savoir-faire électoral. L'un des points les plus significatifs est la participation à ce camp de bon nombre de médecins et d'avocats, prenant le relais de l'aristocratie terrienne durant l'entre-deux-guerres dans une société à la fois imprégnée par « l'esprit ancien combattant » et tentée par les solutions fascistes. L'avènement du régime de Vichy leur permet d'intégrer les rouages du nouveau pouvoir. Au moment de la Libération, le milieu « traditionniste », très affaibli, prône la « réconciliation nationale » et défend une lecture de l'histoire cherchant à réhabiliter l'expérience pétainiste.
The Life of August Wilhelm Schlegel Cosmopolitan of Art and Poetry
This is the first full-scale biography, in any language, of a towering figure in German and European Romanticism: August Wilhelm Schlegel whose life, 1767 to 1845, coincided with its inexorable rise. As poet, translator, critic and oriental scholar, Schlegel's extraordinarily diverse interests and writings left a vast intellectual legacy, making him a foundational figure in several branches of knowledge. He was one of the last thinkers in Europe able to practise as well as to theorise, and to attempt to comprehend the nature of culture without being forced to be a narrow specialist. With his brother Friedrich, for example, Schlegel edited the avant-garde Romantic periodical Athenaeum; and he produced with his wife Caroline a translation of Shakespeare, the first metrical version into any foreign language. Schlegel's Lectures on Dramatic Art and Literature were a defining force for Coleridge and for the French Romantics. But his interests extended to French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese literature, as well to the Greek and Latin classics, and to Sanskrit. August Wilhelm Schlegel is the first attempt to engage with this totality, to combine an account of Schlegel’s life and times with a critical evaluation of his work and its influence. Through the study of one man's rich life, incorporating the most recent scholarship, theoretical approaches, and archival resources, while remaining easily accessible to all readers, Paulin has recovered the intellectual climate of Romanticism in Germany and traced its development into a still-potent international movement. The extraordinarily wide scope and variety of Schlegel's activities have hitherto acted as a barrier to literary scholars, even in Germany. In Roger Paulin, whose career has given him the knowledge and the experience to grapple with such an ambitious project, Schlegel has at last found a worthy exponent.
Rural Society and French Politics
Michael Burns charts the rural impact of the two political watersheds" of fin-de-siecle France--Boulangism and the Dreyfus Affair. Broadening our understanding of the early Third Republic, he investigates its intricate village life and shows how the deindustrialization of the countryside both upset and solidified rural cultures.

More than 100 years ago Sir Arthur Evans' spade made the first cut into the earth above the now well-known Palace at Knossos. His research saw the birth of a new discipline: Minoan Archaeology. The present volume aim to outline current trends and prospects of this scientific field.
Friendship and Empire
In this bold new interpretation of the origins of ancient Rome's overseas empire, Dr Burton charts the impact of the psychology, language and gestures associated with the Roman concept of amicitia, or 'friendship'. The book challenges the prevailing orthodox Cold War-era realist interpretation of Roman imperialism and argues that language and ideals contributed just as much to Roman empire-building as military muscle. Using a constructivist theoretical framework drawn from international relations, Dr Burton replaces the modern scholarly fiction of a Roman empire built on networks of foreign clients and client-states with an interpretation grounded firmly in the discursive habits of the ancient texts themselves. The results better account for the peculiar rhythms of Rome's earliest period of overseas expansion – brief periods of vigorous military and diplomatic activity, such as the rolling back of Seleucid power in Asia Minor and Greece in 192–188 BC, followed by long periods of inactivity.
When the King Took Flight
On a June night in 1791, King Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette fled Paris in disguise, hoping to escape the mounting turmoil of the French Revolution. They were arrested by a small group of citizens a few miles from the Belgian border and forced to return to Paris. Two years later they would both die at the guillotine. It is this extraordinary story, and the events leading up to and away from it, that Tackett recounts in gripping novelistic style.

In the year 1800, toward the close of October, a foreigner, accompanied by a woman and a little girl, was standing for a long time in front of the palace of the Tuileries, near the ruins of a house recently pulled down, at the point where in our day the wing begins which was intended to unite the chateau of Catherine de Medici with the Louvre of the Valois. The man stood there with folded arms and a bowed head, which he sometimes raised to look alternately at the consular palace and at his wife, who was sitting near him on a stone. Though the woman seemed wholly occupied with the little girl of nine or ten years of age, whose long black hair she amused herself by handling, she lost not a single glance of those her companion cast on her. Some sentiment other than love united these two beings, and inspired with mutual anxiety their movements and their thoughts. Misery is, perhaps, the most powerful of all ties. The stranger had one of those broad, serious heads, covered with thick hair, which we see so frequently in the pictures of the Caracci. The jet black of the hair was streaked with white. Though noble and proud, his features had a hardness which spoiled them. In spite of his evident strength, and his straight, erect figure, he looked to be over sixty years of age. His dilapidated clothes were those of a foreign country. Though the faded and once beautiful face of the wife betrayed the deepest sadness, she forced herself to smile, assuming a calm countenance whenever her husband looked at her.
