Abstract

Como se processa a idéia de revolução brasileira na última esquerda comunista - que mantinha substantiva inserção sindical e o intuito da revolução social em seu programa - e na principal facção emergida da depleção dessa última esquerda é o objeto nuclear deste livro. Por via de conseqüência, esta pesquisa coloca em relevo os acontecimentos que culminaram na derrota completa dessa esquerda; derrota ocorrida através de uma dupla falência, id est, o seu esvaziamento teórico e, simultaneamente, a sua morte física perpetrada por uma política de genocídio implementada pela ditadura bonapartista principiada em 1964. Neste livro é definida a figura central, quase exclusiva, de Carlos Marighella (1911-1969) no que se refere ao pensamento da esquerda de uma época, especialmente, ao pensamento da facção que emerge da esquerda comunista. Essa definição parte da constatação de que, num primeiro momento, Marighella foi a personificação das idéias hegemônicas dentro do Partido Comunista Brasileiro (PCB) e da esquerda comunista nacional por três décadas; e num segundo momento, o revolucionário fora o primus inter pares na reordenação tática da esquerda comunista, que é arrastada quase por completo para a luta armada contra a ditadura bonapartista.

Abstract

'A Certain Age' is an unconventional, evocative work of history and a moving reflection on memory, modernity, space, time, and the limitations of traditional historical narratives. Rudolf Mrázek visited Indonesia throughout the 1990s, recording lengthy interviews with elderly intellectuals in and around Jakarta. With few exceptions, they were part of an urban elite born under colonial rule and educated at Dutch schools. From the early twentieth century, through the late colonial era, the national revolution, and well into independence after 1945, these intellectuals injected their ideas of modernity, progress, and freedom into local and national discussion.When Mrázek began his interviews, he expected to discuss phenomena such as the transition from colonialism to postcolonialism. His interviewees, however, wanted to share more personal recollections. Mrázek illuminates their stories of the past with evocative depictions of their late-twentieth-century surroundings.

Abstract

"This book brings to light these indigenous intellectuals' dynamic efforts to shape their own social and political status in the Spanish Empire. For the historian of colonial Spanish America or Peru, it provides an enticing overview of a transatlantic political discourse and suggests interesting avenues for future research."

Abstract

Originaire de l’île de Ré, Nicolas Baudin (1754-1803) est un fameux navigateur-explorateur français. Ce volume part à la quête des différentes étapes de son périple. Après un court passage dans l’armée navale à la fin des années 1770, Nicolas Baudin rejoignit son cousin Peltier, armateur à Nantes et ami de Beaumarchais, pour le compte duquel il navigua le long des côtes nord-américaines à l’époque troublée de la guerre d’Indépendance des États-Unis.Une rencontre, dans la ville du Cap, avec le jardinier de Joseph II lui donna l’occasion de travailler pour l’empereur comme transporteur puis récolteur d’objets d’histoire naturelle. Il devint, en 1792, officier de la marine autrichienne. Après la Révolution, il passa au service de la France, plus exactement à celui du Muséum d’histoire naturelle de Paris, alors dirigé par Antoine-Laurent de Jussieu, pour lequel il mena une expédition botanique aux Antilles. Ce voyage fut un immense succès au point qu’au retour de La Belle Angélique, le vaisseau du capitaine, Jussieu déclara : « le citoyen Baudin est un des voyageurs qui a le plus mérité des sciences naturelles ». Il put ainsi convaincre le premier consul, Bonaparte, et l’Institut de France de lui confier les rênes d’un voyage de découvertes aux Terres australes. Il quitta Le Havre en octobre 1800 aux commandes de deux vaisseaux de la République, Le Géographe et Le Naturaliste. Las, ce voyage fut un enfer pour Baudin : le rejet de son autorité par les officiers, l’indiscipline des savants à bord, de multiples dissensions, une santé défaillante, tout se ligua contre lui et sa réputation en fut complètement ternie.Baudin mourut en 1803, à l’Île-de-France, sur le chemin de retour du Géographe en France, sans jamais avoir eu l’occasion d’être confronté à ses détracteurs.Les contributions rassemblées dans ce volume portent sur les différentes étapes de la vie de Baudin. Elles permettent de mieux cerner la personnalité du capitaine, personnage atypique qui aimait à dire qu’il préférait voir son nom associé à une nouvelle espèce de mollusque qu’à une île inconnue. Naturaliste récolteur plutôt que savant naturaliste, Nicolas Baudin était un homme de talent, de volonté et de passion. Cet ouvrage entend lui rendre hommage.

Abstract

The American Jewish Communist movement played a major role in the politics of Jewish communities in cities such as Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia, as well as in many other centers, between the 1920s and the 1950s. Making extensive use of Yiddish-language books, newspapers, periodicals, pamphlets, and other materials, Dreams of Nationhood traces the ideological and material support provided to the Jewish Autonomous Region of Birobidzhan, located in the far east of the Soviet Union, by two American Jewish Communist-led organizations, the ICOR and the American Birobidzhan Committee. By providing a detailed historical examination of the political work of these two groups, the book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of twentieth century Jewish life in the United States.

Abstract

The image, before representing, to signify, acts and makes act. The performance of images, which this book undertakes exploration, is to be understood first of all as the evaluation of their effectiveness: what are the effects of images? It is then their agency: in what way are images living beings? It is also their performativity: as there are acts of speech, there are acts of image whose modalities can be detailed. Finally, it is their power: what can an image, including a text, for example, be incapable?

Christian image holds a special place here because, far from being a simple "Bible of illiterate "subject to the reign of the text, it permeates all aspects of the life and thought of Christian societies, from their theological and anthropological foundations - God created man in his image; the Son is the image of the Father - up to the most diverse uses of visual objects. But in the West it is not only in the Middle Ages that the images are active: this book is also devoted to the new forms of visual performances that appeared with the Renaissance or the mass-media society.&#xD;

Abstract

Göttingen nach Kriegsende 1945 – Wie gestaltete sich der Nachkriegsalltag aus Sicht der Bevölkerung und der alten und neuen Behörden? Welche Formen und Auswirkungen hatten die neuen politischen Verhältnisse, die Flüchtlinge, die Mangelwirtschaft, die Wohnungsnot, die Umgestaltung des Bildungssektors und welche Neuordnungen des öffentlichen und kulturellen Lebens stießen auf Akzeptanz oder Ablehnung? Diesen und anderen Fragen geht der vorliegende Sammelband nach. Er beruht auf Beiträgen eines Seminars im Fach Geschichte der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, die von den Herausgeberinnen redigiert und durch ein Vorwort ergänzt wurden. In verschiedenen Archiven stießen die Studierenden auf zahlreiche bislang unveröffentlichte Quellen und analysierten diese mit Hilfe aktueller Forschungsansätze zur Alltagsgeschichte.
