The Arab of the Future 2 by Summary

The highly anticipated continuation of Riad Sattouf’s internationally acclaimed, #1 French bestseller, which was hailed by The New York Times as “a disquieting yet essential read” In The Arab of the Future: Volume 1, cartoonist Riad Sattouf tells of the first years of his childhood as his family shuttles back and forth between France and the Middle East. In Libya and Syria, young Riad is exposed to the dismal reality of a life where food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and his cousins, virulently anti-Semitic and convinced he is Jewish because of his blond hair, lurk around every corner waiting to beat him up. In Volume 2, Riad, now settled in his father’s hometown of Homs, gets to go to school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad’s story takes in the sweep of politics, religion, and poverty, but is steered by acutely observed small moments: the daily sadism of his schoolteacher, the lure of the black market, with its menu of shame and subsistence, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime. As his family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the Sattoufs to make the most dramatic of changes. Darkly funny and piercingly direct, The Arab of the Future, Volume 2 once again reveals the inner workings of a tormented country and a tormented family, delivered through Riad Sattouf’s dazzlingly original talent.

The Arab of the Future 4 by Riad Sattouf Summary

The penultimate installment in the bestselling French graphic memoir series—hailed as “exquisitely illustrated” and “irresistible”—covering the years of Riad Sattouf’s adolescence, from 1987-1992. In the fourth volume of The Arab of the Future, little Riad has grown into a teenager. In the previous books, his childhood was complicated by the pull of his two cultures—French and Syrian—and his parents’ deteriorating relationship. Now his father, Adbel-Razak, has left to take a job in Saudi Arabia, and after making a pilgrimage to Mecca, turns increasingly towards religion. But after following him from place to place and living for years under the harsh conditions of his impoverished village, Riad’s mother Clementine has had enough. Refusing to live in a country where women have no rights, she returns with her children to live in France with her own mother... until Abdel-Razak shows up unexpectedly to drag the family on yet another journey. As the series builds to a climax, we see Riad struggle with problems both universal (bullies at school) and specific (his mother’s sudden illness, the judgment of his religious relatives). And as Abdel-Razak returns again to the same fantastical dreams he pursued in previous books, we see him become more and more unhinged, until ultimately he crosses the line from idealism to fanaticism, leading to a dramatic breaking point. Full of the same gripping storytelling and lush visual style for which Sattouf’s previous works have won numerous awards, The Arab of the Future 4 continues the saga of the Sattouf family and their peripatetic life in France and the Middle East.

The Arab of the Future 3 by Riad Sattouf Summary

In the third installment of the acclaimed series, the Sattouf family begins to implode under the pressure of Hafez al-Assad's regime and the suffocation of their rural Syrian village. The Arab of the Future is the widely acclaimed, internationally bestselling graphic memoir that tells the story of Riad Sattouf’s peripatetic childhood in the Middle East. In the first volume, which covers the years 1978–1984, his family moves between rural France, Libya, and Syria, where they eventually settle in his father’s native village of Ter Maaleh, near Homs. The second volume recounts young Riad’s first year attending school in Syria (1984–1985), where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of Hafez al-Assad. In this third volume, (1985–1987), Riad’s mother, fed up with the grinding reality of daily life in the village, decides she cannot take it any longer. When she resolves to move back to France, young Riad sees his father torn between his wife’s aspirations and the weight of family traditions.

Shenzhen by Guy Delisle Summary

Shenzhen is entertainingly compact with Guy Delisle’s observations of life in urban southern China, sealed off from the rest of the country by electric fences and armed guards. With a dry wit and a clean line, Delisle makes the most of his time spent in Asia overseeing outsourced production for a French animation company. By translating his fish-out-of-water experiences into accessible graphic novels, Delisle skillfully notes the differences between Western and Eastern cultures, while also conveying his compassion for the simple freedoms that escape his colleagues in the Communist state. Shenzhen has been translated from the French by Helge Dascher. Dascher has been translating graphic novels from French and German to English for over twenty years. A contributor to Drawn & Quarterly since the early days, her translations include acclaimed titles such as the Aya series by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie, Hostage by Guy Delisle, and Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas Summary

The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas. It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet. The story takes place in France, Italy and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815–1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. In addition, it is a story that involves romance, loyalty, betrayal and selfishness, shown throughout the story as characters slowly reveal their true inner nature. The book is considered a literary classic today. According to Luc Sante, "The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western civilization's literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood."

Pyongyang by Guy Delisle Summary

The perennial graphic novel about the "Hermit Country" with new cover and introduction by Gore Verbinski Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea is Guy Delisle's graphic novel that made his career,an international bestseller for over ten years. Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country when he was working in animation for a French company. While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa, Delisle observed everything he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered, bringing a sardonic and skeptical perspective on a place rife with propaganda. As a guide to the country, Delisle is a non-believer with a keen eye for the humor and tragedy of dictatorial whims, expressed in looming architecture and tiny, omnipresent photos of the President. The absurd vagaries of everyday life become fodder for a frustrated animator’s musings as boredom and censorship sink in. Delisle himself is the ideal foil for North Korean spin, the grumpy outsider who brought a copy of George Orwell’s 1984 with him into the totalitarian nation. Pyongyang is an informative, personal, and accessible look at a dangerous and enigmatic country. Pyongyang has been translated from the French by Helge Dascher. Dascher has been translating graphic novels from French and German to English for over twenty years.

Necronomicon by H.P. Lovecraft Summary

WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.' His tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published. THE NECRONOMICON collects together the very best of Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were originally published. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as being a must-buy for those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.

Autobiographical Comics by Elisabeth El Refaie Summary

A troubled childhood in Iran. Living with a disability. Grieving for a dead child. Over the last forty years the comic book has become an increasingly popular way of telling personal stories of considerable complexity and depth. In Autobiographical Comics: Life Writing in Pictures, Elisabeth El Refaie offers a long overdue assessment of the key conventions, formal properties, and narrative patterns of this fascinating genre. The book considers eighty-five works of North American and European provenance, works that cover a broad range of subject matters and employ many different artistic styles. Drawing on concepts from several disciplinary fields—including semiotics, literary and narrative theory, art history, and psychology—El Refaie shows that the traditions and formal features of comics provide new possibilities for autobiographical storytelling. For example, the requirement to produce multiple drawn versions of one’s self necessarily involves an intense engagement with physical aspects of identity, as well as with the cultural models that underpin body image. The comics medium also offers memoirists unique ways of representing their experience of time, their memories of past events, and their hopes and dreams for the future. Furthermore, autobiographical comics creators are able to draw on the close association in contemporary Western culture between seeing and believing in order to persuade readers of the authentic nature of their stories.

In the year since his marriage, Karluk has grown a good deal, but Amir can't help but feel overprotective of her much younger husband. Karluk wants nothing more than to prove that he can be a strong and competent man--and he may soon have the opportunity to prove just that. Desperate for land to feed their flocks, Amir's former tribe prepares to attack her village with a fearsome arsenal of cannons and guns provided by their new allies. This time the Halgals are not interested in capturing Amir--no one is safe from their terrible assault!

Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan Summary

The international sensation that sold half a million copies in France and the subject of a new film by Roman Polanski: a chilling story about a friendship gone terrifyingly toxic. Winner of Le Prix Renaudot 2015 Winner of Le Prix Goncourt des Lycéens 2015 Overwhelmed by the huge success of her latest novel, exhausted and suffering from a crippling inability to write, Delphine meets L., who embodies everything Delphine has always secretly admired; she is a glittering image of feminine sophistication and spontaneity and she has an uncanny knack of always saying the right thing. Unusually intuitive, L. senses Delphine's vulnerability and slowly but deliberately carves herself a niche in the writer's life. However, as L. makes herself indispensable to Delphine, the intensity of this unexpected friendship manifests itself in increasingly sinister ways. As their lives become more and more entwined, L. threatens Delphine's identity, both as a writer and as an individual. This sophisticated psychological thriller skillfully blurs the line between fact and fiction, reality and artifice. Delphine de Vigan has crafted a terrifying, insidious, metafictional thriller; a haunting vision of seduction and betrayal; a book which in its hungering for truth implicates the reader, too-even as it holds us in its thrall.

Graphic History by Richard Iadonisi Summary

When it comes to recounting history, issues arise as to whose stories are told and how reliable is the telling. This collection of fourteen essays explores the unique ways in which graphic novels can aid us in addressing those issues while shedding new light on a variety of texts, including those by canonical North American and European writers Art Spiegelman (Maus, In the Shadow of No Towers), Alan Moore (From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), Frank Miller (The Dark Knight Returns), Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan), Chester Brown (Louis Riel), and Harvey Pekar. Recognizing the global appeal of graphic novels, this collection also provides a fresh look at history seen through the eyes of canonical non-Western writers Marjane Starapi (Persepolis) and Yoshihiro Tatsumi (A Drifting Life) and the highly vexed relationship of the West and the Middle East. The array of contributors (from the fields of art, literature, history, and cultural studies) is matched by the array of theoretical perspectives and by the depth and breadth of subjects, ranging from the sixteenth century voyages of Sebastian Cabot to Jack the Ripper, from the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 to lynching in the early twentieth-century American South, and from post-war Japan to the fall of the Shah in Iran.

Esther's Notebooks by Riad Sattouf Summary

From the author of The Arab of the Future, comes the first book in a bestselling series of graphic novels that follow the hilarious, heartbreaking, and all painfully true life of a real girl growing up in Paris Every week, the comic book artist Riad Sattouf has a chat with his friend’s 10-year old daughter, Esther. She tells him about her life, her family, her school, her friends, her hopes, her dreams and her fears. And then he creates a one-page comic strip based on what she says. This book is a collection of 156 of those strips, comprising the first three volumes as they appeared in Europe, spanning Esther’s life from age 10 to 12. As The Guardian noted: “Each page of Esther’s Notebooks is self-contained—there’s usually a neat punchline—but read them all, and you come to see that Sattouf has drawn a portrait of a generation: their hopes, dreams and cultural references; the way that their personalities, backgrounds—many of the children portrayed have parents who are immigrants—and preconceived ideas about sexuality begin to play out even before they’ve begun secondary school. The result is a bit like a cartoon version of Michael Apted’s landmark TV series, Up. These funny, well-observed comics are fantastically daring.”

Les Puissances vont aller jusqu'à se faire la guerre pour établir leur protectorat sur les Lieux saints, les archéologues font des rouilles pour démontrer la véracité du texte biblique aria à mal par la critique historique, La petite Palestine devient ainsi un enjeu de luttes politiques et de confits scientifiques. Elle-même se transforme considérablement durant un long XIXe siècle marqué par les reformes modernisatrices de l'Empire ottoman. Société levantine, elle découvre au début du XXe siècle les premières formes de nationalisme. De l'opposition entre science et religion naît historicisation du texte sacre qui fait du peuple juif un acteur de ]'Histoire. A partir de l880, au moment cor le libéralisme européen s'épuise, la montée des différentes formes d'antisémitisme génère l'expression d'un nationalisme dont la forme la plus radicale sera le sionisme. Ce livre rapporte comment, grâce aux " israélites " français, la pre mière colonisation juive a été possible. Dès les années 1900, le sionisme commence à se heurter au nationalisme arabe palestinien. Durant la Grande Guerre, Français et Anglais mènent une politique hésitante et contradictoire destinée à leur assurer le soutien des mondes ,juif et musulman dont la force véritable est surestimée. De 1919 à 1922, les Britanniques obtiennent bien un. mandat sur la Palestine, mais, au moment où la charte dudit mandat est: ratifie par la Société des nations (juillet I922), la contradiction des engagement pris est patente en dépit d'une savante construction politique. De 1799 à 1922, la vieille Terre sainte des religions devient la Terre sainte ces nations. Plus le monde est censé se désenchanter, plus la sacralité de cette région se renforce pour devenir la cause de nouvelles violences.

Une si douce accoutumance by Frédéric Chauvaud Summary

Aujourd'hui la bande dessinée est partout au point que l'on ne prête guère attention à la singularité de sa présence. À la une des magazines, dans les manuels scolaires, sur les murs des villes, l'image bédéiste a colonisé l'imaginaire des sociétés contemporaines. Qu'ils soient férus de littérature graphique, simples amateurs, indifférents, voire hostiles, les contemporains, face à cette débauche d'images, ne peuvent ignorer des personnages devenus familiers. Lecteurs et lectrices, de tous les âges et de toutes conditions, peuvent avec ravissement se plonger dans les univers de la BD, découvrir des mondes improbables, suivre des reportages, prendre la mesure des connaissances scientifiques. Ainsi se déploie une douce accoutumance à toutes les formes de narrations graphiques. Revues, festivals, rencontres contribuent à maintenir ou à accroître la dépendance aux bulles et aux cases. Mais, miroir déformant, la bande dessinée offre aussi un panorama des addictions à l'alcool, au tabac ou au sexe.

Mouhammad est-il un Prophète ? by Rachid Maach Summary

Ce livre est né d’une idée simple, fondée elle-même sur une conviction : Mouhammad est bien un Prophète, le dernier d’une série de Prophètes sémites issus d’Abraham dont il est le descendant. Il existe donc nécessairement des preuves de l’authenticité de sa mission. Le but de cet ouvrage est d’en faire un inventaire non exhaustif puisque, comme l’indique son titre, nous nous sommes contenté de 100 preuves qui, prises dans leur ensemble, forment un faisceau de vérités que seul un esprit borné pourra rejeter. Ces preuves, qui pour des raisons de fluidité n’ont pas été signalées dans le texte, mais récapitulées en fin d’ouvrage, sont de deux types : Premier type : des preuves scripturaires Les livres révélés font forcément mention du Prophète Mouhammad, fondateur de ce qui est devenu aujourd’hui la première religion du globe et d’un empire qui a changé la face du monde. Le Coran affirme évidemment l’authenticité de sa mission et le désigne comme « le Prophète » ou, plus encore, comme « l’Envoyé de Dieu». Le Très Haut dit : (Mouhammad n’est qu’un envoyé de Dieu que d’autres Prophètes ont précédé.) Mais les non musulmans ne reconnaissent pas le Coran comme livre révélé, sans quoi ils seraient musulmans. Restent les écritures judéo-chrétiennes qui, en plusieurs points, de manière plus ou moins explicite, annoncent son avènement. Comment pourrait-il en être autrement? Comment un événement si capital de l’histoire de l’humanité aurait-il pu être passé sous silence par les Prophètes bibliques qui ont mentionné des événements bien moins importants? La première partie de ce livre, intitulée Le Prophète annoncé, est donc consacrée à ces annonces toujours présentes dans le Nouveau et l’Ancien Testament. Second type : des preuves rationnelles Les preuves scripturaires, tirées de livres révélés avant l’avènement du Prophète Mouhammad, ne suffiront probablement pas à convaincre les esprits les plus cartésiens qui n’acceptent que les preuves les plus rationnelles, bien que l’annonce de l’avènement de Mouhammad dans les écritures judéo-chrétiennes soit en soi une preuve ô combien rationnelle de sa sincérité. Le noyau dur de cet ouvrage est donc constitué de ces preuves rationnelles qui, prises dans leur ensemble, démontrent sans ambiguïté l’authenticité de la mission de l’Envoyé de Dieu et l’origine divine du Coran, preuves que nous avons classées en quatre catégories correspondant à la deuxième, troisième, quatrième et cinquième parties de cet ouvrage. Première catégorie : les annonces d’un Prophète Ce qui distingue en effet un faux prophète d’un vrai est l’authenticité de ses prophéties. On peut lire dans l’Ancien Testament : «Quand ce que dira le Prophète n’aura pas lieu et n’arrivera pas, ce sera une parole que l’Éternel n’aura point dite.» Deuxième catégorie : les enseignements d’un Prophète Comment, en effet, un Arabe illettré du 7ème siècle a-t-il pu apporter un message qui a si profondément marqué les sociétés et influencé les individus, un message d’une parfaite cohérence, sans aucune contradiction, et qui, contrairement à la Bible, ne s’oppose ni à la raison, ni à l’Histoire, ni aux vérités scientifiques? Troisième catégorie : les réalisations d’un Prophète Comment expliquer qu’un groupe de croyants, persécutés à La Mecque, contraints de se cacher pour prier, ait pu devenir cette nation qui, en quelques décennies, a conquis le monde ? Et comment le Seigneur aurait-il pu admettre le triomphe de l’islam, qui s’accentue d’ailleurs de siècle en siècle, si Mouhammad avait été un faux prophète ? Quatrième catégorie : les caractéristiques d’un Prophète Nous montrerons dans ce chapitre qu’aucune des caractéristiques d’un faux prophète ne se retrouve chez Mouhammad qui présente, au contraire, toutes les qualités d’un Prophète de la lignée des Prophètes sémites qui descendent d’Abraham. Ce livre, nous ne saurions nous en cacher, a pour but premier de convaincre les non musulmans de l’authenticité de l’islam ou, pour le moins, de modifier leur vision de cette religion si peu appréciée mais au fond si peu étudiée en Occident. Cet ouvrage ne manquera pas non plus, au moment où l’athéisme se propage inexorablement en occident, en France notamment, de raffermir la foi des musulmans et de les encourager à rester fermement attachés à leur religion par ces temps d’épreuves que le Prophète a annoncés il y a plus de quatorze siècles déjà en disant : « Il viendra un temps où celui, parmi les musulmans, qui s’attachera à sa religion sera aussi éprouvé que celui qui tient une braise dans la main.»

Lentement vers la Lumière by Jacques Henri Prévost Summary

Peut-on, d'homme de matière, devenir Homme de Lumière ? L’auteur tente de répondre en présentant les visions de divers mouvements spiritualistes qui ont préparé l’ésotérisme occidental dans différents temps et lieux du Monde. Il y a bien des façons de chercher la clarté et d'essayer de répondre aux multiples questions posées par l'origine, la nature, et le sens de la vie humaine. Beaucoup d'hommes y ont consacré leurs vies, leurs intelligences et leurs imaginations. Leurs visions ne sont pas antagonistes car elles ouvrent des fenêtres différentes sur le même et unique profond mystère des origines. Cristallisée dans la matière, l’âme tente depuis des millénaires de s’ouvrir un chemin vers la lumière, mais les siècles passent et l’opacité de l’incarnation dans la matière ne cède que bien lentement. Néanmoins, la conscience progresse, et siècle après siècle, vie après vie, l’alchimie spirituelle amollit les résistances de l’égo et dissipe progressivement toutes les illusions du Monde. Lentement, les certitudes s’effritent, la lumière perce les opacités, donnant progressivement un sens à l’existence. C’est ce lent cheminement depuis les sources antiques de notre civilisation occidentale jusqu’à nos jours, à travers les siècles, les civilisations, les philosophies et les religions diverses que cet ouvrage se propose de présenter dans les études suivantes. Les appels de la Lumière. Réminiscence et réincarnation selon Platon. Les dieux grecs. Les Ennéades de Plotin. Les enseignements d’Hermès Trismégiste. Les antiques religions à Mystères. La religion des Romains. La Divine Comédie de Dante. L’origine des Rose-Croix. Le mythe de la Quête du Graal. De la Gnose aux Cathares. La Foi des Cathares. De Giodano Bruno à l’Univers vivant. Robert Fludd et la Rose-Croix.

LE SOUFISME REGARDE L'OCCIDENT by Philippe Moulinet Summary

Le soufisme est une science qui initie l'homme à la connaissance de soi en lui montrant la voie du retour vers son Dieu. L'auteur a saisi en profondeur la pensée philosophique d'occident ainsi que la vision des grands spirituels de l'Islam à travers l'œuvre d'Henry Corbin notamment dont il fait fructifier les apports par une méditation vivante, enracinée dans l'expérience directe de la voie soufie. Le premier volume montre tout l'art du maître spirituel qui utilise les situations quotidiennes pour ôter au disciple la prétention à se faire une image " suffisante " de lui-même. Le deuxième tome nous ouvre un autre monde, celui de l'Imagination divine où l'âme humaine configure le scénario de son existence en vertu de la loi de correspondance qui unit nos aspirations intimes à ce qui nous vient de l'extérieur. Enfin le troisième volume propose des remèdes aux maux de la civilisation occidentale.

L'éveil politique de la société algérienne by Abla Gheziel Summary

L'auteure propose de suivre l'évolution et les facteurs qui ont contribué à l'éveil populaire des masses musulmanes durant la période qui s'étend de 1830 à 1936. Elle développe la théorie selon laquelle soumission, assimilation, révoltes ont aidé à l'éclosion du nationalisme, qui fut le résultat d'un cheminement complexe, compte tenu des différents facteurs tels le panislamisme, les retombées de la Première Guerre mondiale et l'engagement des indigènes dans ce conflit. Après les années 1920, avec l'apparition de formations politiques, la prise de conscience des masses musulmanes va passer d'une pensée particulariste à une pensée collective nationale.

Cl. J. ROUGET DE LISLE by Christian Mas Summary

Entre littérature et musique, l'existence de Rouget de Lisle se déroule et se construit dans l'unité d'une pensée et d'un engagement humain, social et politique. Rouget de Lisle, tout à la fois acteur sensible et témoin privilégié de ces années 1789 et 1830, participera à cette vision particulièrement neuve qui désire inscrire le cheminement de l'homme dans une perspective de générosité, de fraternité, de bonheur et d'épanouissement. Une œuvre musicale, une réflexion morale et politique, une écriture littéraire, nous interpellent et nous entraînent avec ferveur.
