Abstract

La multiplication des mosquées, le phénomène « beur », la question des banlieues... voilà autant de réalités qui ont contribué à placer l'immigration au cœur des préoccupations politiques françaises. Pour dépasser les préjugés et les passions qui obscurcissent le débat, cet ouvrage présente une analyse permettant de comprendre les comportements des citoyens issus de l'immigration maghrébine. Leur installation définitive sur le sol national s'inscrit dans une double trajectoire : la revendicat...

Abstract

This study analyzes the artistic theory and practice of the Left Front of the Arts (Levyi front iskusstv - Lef) with a special focus on the journal Lef (1923-1925). Two themes are central to this account: the organizational activities of the Lef group directed toward making Futurism a formative force within the Soviet culture and the artistic proposals published in Lef that had the same goal.

Abstract

Fellow Travellers examines the shifting practices and strategies adopted by Communist militants as they sought to build and maintain support on the railways. In a period in which the Communist party struggled to establish a foothold in many French workplaces, activists on the railways bucked the trend and set down deep and lasting roots of support. They maintained this support even through the sectarian period of the Comintern’s shift to class against class, deepening their participation within railway industrial relations and gaining the experience of engagement with managers and state officials upon which they would build during the years of the Popular Front. Here France’s railway employees joined alongside their fellow workers in shaping a new social contract for workers, extending the principle of democratic representation into the workplace. While the Popular Front experiment proved shortlived, its influence was long lasting. In the post Liberation period, the key tenets of the Popular Front experience re-emerged within the nationalised SNCF, shaping the particular character of railway industrial relations – the peculiar mix of collaboration and hostile confrontation between management and workforce that continues to make the French railways one of the most contested sectors of the modern French economy.

Abstract

The First World War was the first 'total war'. Its industrial weaponry damaged millions of men and drove whole armies underground into dangerously unhealthy trenches. Many were killed. Many more suffered terrible, life-threatening injuries: wound infections such as gas gangrene and tetanus, exposure to extremes of temperature, emotional trauma and systemic disease. In an effort to alleviate this suffering, tens of thousands of women volunteered to serve as nurses. Of these, some were experienced professionals while others had undergone only minimal training. But regardless of their preparation, they would all gain a unique understanding of the conditions of industrial warfare. Until recently their contributions, both to the saving of lives and to our understanding of warfare, have remained largely hidden from view. By combining biographical research with textual analysis, Nurse writers of the great war opens a window onto their insights into the nature of nursing and the impact of war.

Abstract

Up to the 1980s prisoners of war were hardly even mentioned in military history. Only in recent years have scientists acknowledged the importance of this topic. For their investigations some of them chose the First World War, especially the Eastern front, where more than 5 million soldiers were captured until the revolutionary events of 1917/18. Contrary to the few existing studies, the present publication concentrates more on the evaluation of captivity in the historical background rather than on the description of "POW-fates" in "the hands of their enemies". It therefore focuses on the meaning of captivity and repatriation during the Russian Revolution and the establishment of the Communist International. Based on documents of the central archives in Vienna and Moscow, the thesis comes to the following results: On the one hand, conflicts between the soldiers of the Central Powers in the former Tsarist empire, in particular between the Austro-Hungarian nationalities, for example between the "Bolshevik internationalists" and the "Czech Legion", played a decisive role in the beginning of an Eastern European "period of confusion" which can hardly be entitled a "Russian Civil War". On the other hand, former prisoners functioned as founders of the Comintern and leaders of the first communist parties outside Soviet Russia. The activities of POWs thus marked the starting point of the international cadrerecruitment for the Comintern, which became a significant aspect in the foreign politics of the "first proletarian republic" and consequently in the so called "short 20th century" defined by the existance of the USSR and its "satellite states".

Abstract

This edited volume traces the rise of far right vigilante movements – some who have been involved in serious violence against minorities, migrants and other vulnerable groups in society, whereas other vigilantes are intimidating but avoid using violence. Written by an international team of contributors, the book features case studies from Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, and Asia. Each chapter is written to a common research template examining the national social and political context, the purpose of the vigilante group, how it is organised and operates, its communications and social media strategy and its relationship to mainstream social actors and institutions, and to similar groups in other countries. The final comparative chapter explores some of the broader research issues such as under which conditions such vigiliantism emerges, flourishes or fails, policing approaches, masculinity, the role of social media, responses from the state and civil society, and the evidence of transnational co-operation or inspiration. This is a groundbreaking volume which will be of particular interest to scholars with an interest in the extreme right, social movements, political violence, policing and criminology.

Abstract

Depuis les années 1990 le voile cristallise les débats politiques sur l’identité nationale et livre des femmes musulmanes une image partielle. Cet ouvrage cherche à donner plus d’épaisseur à leur présence dans la société française en s’intéressant aux premières d’entre elles : les Algériennes venues au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Qui sont ces femmes ? Pourquoi traversent-elles la Méditerranée aux pires moments de la répression du nationalisme algérien ? Comment trouvent-elles leur place dans la société qui les entoure et leur rôle dans la guerre d’indépendance menée aussi en métropole ? Grâce à une enquête orale approfondie, on les entend répondre à ces questions, on les découvre également au détour d’un fonds photographique public ou privé, dans le secret des archives judiciaires et policières, administratives et médiatiques. Leur mémoire inspire une parole vive et permet aux archives de parler à leur tour. On comprend alors l’histoire partagée qui les amène à prendre parti dans une guerre souvent fratricide, à s’attacher à l’Algérie naissante autant qu’à trouver la forme d’une intégration singulière, loin des débats actuels qui les méconnaissent obstinément. L’écriture de cette histoire résulte ainsi d’une écoute, d’une patience et d’une réflexion sur les outils, sur les méthodes aptes à rendre visible la matière complexe des parcours de ces Algériennes pendant cinquante ans, en s’efforçant d’en préserver la vie.
