Alchemy and Amalgam by Emily Salines Summary

Alchemy and Amalgam explores a relatively un-researched area of the Baudelairean corpus (his translations from English) and relates them to the rest of his works. It seeks to establish a link between translational and creative writing, arguing for a reassessment of the place of translation in Baudelaire's writing method. The book is one of the first of its kind to link the study of the translational activity of a major writer to his 'creative' writings. It is also one of the first to provide an integrated presentation of French 19th-century translation approaches and to link them to questions of copyright and authorship in the context of the rise of capitalism and romantic views of creation and genius. It offers, therefore, a new perspective both on translation history and on literary history. Alchemy and Amalgam will be of interest to students of translation, comparative literature and French studies.

Procedure and Evidence in International Arbitration by Jeffrey Waincymer Summary

Central to the book’s purpose is the procedural challenge facing arbitrators at each and every stage of the arbitral process when fairness arguments conflict with efficiency concerns and trade-offs must be determined. Some key themes include how can a tribunal be fair, and in particular be neutral, if parties are so diverse? How can arbitration be made efficient and cost-effective without undue inroads into fairness and accuracy? How does a tribunal do what is best if the parties are choosing a suboptimal process? When can or must an arbitrator ignore procedural choices made by the parties? The author thoroughly evaluates competing arguments and adds his own practical tips, expertly synthesizing and engaging with the conference literature and differing authors’ views. He identifies criteria that offer a harmonized approach to each stage of the arbitral process, with particular attention to such aspects of international arbitration as: appropriate trade-offs between flexibility and certainty; the rights, duties and powers of arbitrators; appointment and challenge of arbitrators; responses to ‘guerilla’ tactics; drafting of arbitration agreements, including specialty clauses; drafting of required commencement notices and response documents; set-off; fast track arbitration and other efficiency options; strategic use of preliminary conferences and timetabling; online arbitration; multi-party, multi-contract, class arbitration; amicus and third party funders; pre-arbitral referees and interim relief; witness evidence, both factual and expert; documentary evidence, production obligations, and challenges to production; identifying applicable law; and remedies and costs.

The Routledge Companion to Medieval Iconography by Colum Hourihane Summary

Sometimes enjoying considerable favor, sometimes less, iconography has been an essential element in medieval art historical studies since the beginning of the discipline. Some of the greatest art historians – including Mâle, Warburg, Panofsky, Morey, and Schapiro – have devoted their lives to understanding and structuring what exactly the subject matter of a work of medieval art can tell. Over the last thirty or so years, scholarship has seen the meaning and methodologies of the term considerably broadened. This companion provides a state-of-the-art assessment of the influence of the foremost iconographers, as well as the methodologies employed and themes that underpin the discipline. The first section focuses on influential thinkers in the field, while the second covers some of the best-known methodologies; the third, and largest section, looks at some of the major themes in medieval art. Taken together, the three sections include thirty-eight chapters, each of which deals with an individual topic. An introduction, historiographical evaluation, and bibliography accompany the individual essays. The authors are recognized experts in the field, and each essay includes original analyses and/or case studies which will hopefully open the field for future research.

Paris 1900 by Christophe Prochasson Summary

Et si Paris, comme d'autres métropoles de légende, vivait surtout d'images ? Si la culture pouvait construire l'espace ? C'est cette hypothèse que voudrait tester ce livre pour l'un des moments les plus forts de la capitale : les années 1890-1910, qui voient surgir la tour Eiffel, naître le métropolitain, tandis que triomphent, sur la scène, Feydeau, Courteline et Rostand. Comment ne pas être frappé par la multitude de textes, littéraires, journalistiques, scientifiques ou touristiques, qui s'emparent de Paris pour en bâtir le mythe ? Mais il y a plus ici qu'un simple miroir où Paris se contemple. En examinant le jeu des relations sociales, qui est celui des élites d'une capitale se piquant de ne vivre que de culture, on saisit le poids d'un spectacle qui offre, à tout moment, l'espace renouvelé de ses représentations. Chacun tient son rôle, s'appuie sur ses amis ou ses clientèles. Paris est un théâtre. La métaphore n'est pas sans vertu pour comprendre l'intimité du fonctionnement de la vie culturelle à Paris. En investissant les coulisses du petit monde parisien, on saisit mieux les mutations de la culture des élites face à la montée en puissance d'une civilisation de masse et les réponses de ces élites aux défis de la massification. Un débat où la grande ville moderne intervient de façon prépondérante.

Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo Summary

Édition enrichie (Introduction, notes et chronologie) Sorti du libre élan mystique, le gothique, comme on l'a dit sans le comprendre, est le genre libre. Je dis libre, et non arbitraire. S'il s'en fût tenu au même type, s'il fût resté assujetti par l'harmonie géométrique, il eût péri de langueur. [...] Comment compter nos belles églises au xiiie siècle ? Je voulais du moins parler de Notre-Dame de Paris. Mais quelqu'un a marqué ce monument d'une telle griffe de lion, que personne désormais ne se hasardera d'y toucher. C'est sa chose désormais, c'est son fief, c'est le majorat de Quasimodo. Il a bâti, à côté de la vieille cathédrale, une cathédrale de poésie, aussi ferme que les fondements de l'autre, aussi haute que ses tours. Si je regardais cette église, ce serait comme livre d'histoire, comme le grand registre des destinées de la monarchie. [...] La grande et lourde église, toute fleurdelysée, appartient à l'histoire plus qu'à la religion. Elle a peu d'élan, peu de ce mouvement d'ascension si frappant dans les églises de Strasbourg et de Cologne. Les bandes longitudinales qui coupent Notre-Dame de Paris arrêtent l'élan ; ce sont plutôt les lignes d'un livre. Cela raconte au lieu de prier. [...] Notre-Dame de Paris est l'église de la monarchie ; Notre-Dame de Reims, celle du sacre. Jules Michelet, Histoire de France, iv, 8, « Eclaircissements : la Passion comme principe d'art au Moyen Age » (1833). Présentation et notes par Jacques Seebacher.

To the Maginot Line by Judith M. HUGHES,Judith M Hughes Summary

The decision to fortify northeastern France has usually been considered a tragic mistake, an example of bad planning and missed opportunities. Not so, says Judith M. Hughes, who provides a convincing view of how France’s military and political leaders tried to safeguard their nation and why they failed. As critic Michael Hurst writes in The American Historical Review, " The trends of French interwar history are deftly carried through onto these pages with an unobtrusive lucidity and persuasiveness."

Writing the History of the Mind by Cristina Chimisso Summary

For much of the twentieth century, French intellectual life was dominated by theoreticians and historians of mentalité. Traditionally, the study of the mind and of its limits and capabilities was the domain of philosophy, however in the first decades of the twentieth century practitioners of the emergent human and social sciences were increasingly competing with philosophers in this field: ethnologists, sociologists, psychologists and historians of science were all claiming to study 'how people think'. Scholars, including Gaston Bachelard, Georges Canguilhem, Léon Brunschvicg, Lucien Lévy-Bruhl, Lucien Febvre, Abel Rey, Alexandre Koyré and Hélène Metzger were all investigating the mind historically and participating in shared research projects. Yet, as they have since been appropriated by the different disciplines, literature on their findings has so far failed to recognise the connections between their research and their importance in intellectual history. In this exemplary book, Cristina Chimisso reconstructs the world of these intellectuals and the key debates in the philosophy of mind, particularly between those who studied specific mentalities by employing prevalently historical and philological methods, and those who thought it possible to write a history of the mind, outlining the evolution of ways of thinking that had produced the modern mentality. Dr Chimisso situates the key French scholars in their historical context and shows how their ideas and agendas were indissolubly linked with their social and institutional positions, such as their political and religious allegiances, their status in academia, and their familial situation. The author employs a vast range of original research, using philosophical and scientific texts as well as archive documents, correspondence and seminar minutes from the period covered, to recreate the milieu in which these relatively neglected scholars made advances in the history of philosophy and science, and produced

Erard by Robert Adelson Summary

Sébastien Erard's (1752-1831) inventions have had an enormous impact on instruments and musical life and are still at the foundation of piano building today. Drawing on an unusually rich set of archives from both the Erard firm and the Erard family, author Robert Adelson shows how the Erard piano played an important and often leading role in the history of the instrument, beginning in the late eighteenth century and continuing into the final decades of the nineteenth. The Erards were the first piano builders in France to prioritise the more sonorous grand piano, sending gifts of their new model to both Haydn and Beethoven. Erard's famous double-escapement action, which improved the instrument's response while at the same time producing a more powerful tone, revolutionised both piano construction and repertoire. Thanks to these inventions, the Erard firm developed close relationships with the greatest pianist composers of the nineteenth century, including Hummel, Liszt, Moscheles and Mendelssohn. The book also presents new evidence concerning Pierre Erard's homosexuality, which helps us to understand his reluctance to found a family to carry on the Erard tradition, a reluctance that would spell the end of the golden era of the firm and lead to its eventual demise. The book closes with the story of Pierre's widow Camille, who directed the firm from 1855 until 1889. Her influential position in the male-dominated world of instrument building was unique for a woman of her time.

ABHB Annual Bibliography of the History of the Printed Book and Libraries by Hendrik D.L. Vervliet Summary

The history of printing, books, and libraries, is confined only to a limited extent within the boundaries of individual countries. There are, indeed, few historical developments which have played a more universal role, in reaction against all kinds of particularism, than type design, printing, book production, publishing, illustration, binding, librarianship, journal ism, and related subjects. Their history should be assessed and studied primarily in an international, not in a local, context. The bibliographical resources, however, which the historian of these sub jects has at his disposal correspond hardly at all to the essentially inter national character of the object of his studies. Since the appearance of the retrospective bibliography of BIG MORE and WYMAN, covering the subject comprehensively up to r88o, the only current bibliography has been the lnternationale Bibliographie des Buck-und Bi bliothekswesens. Covering a representative part of newly published liter ature, it appeared from rgz8, but did not survive the Second World War. More recently, several useful, but limited, bibliographies have appeared.

Bacchic Medicine by Harry W. Paul Summary

Wine has always been a part of popular medicine. Bacchic Medicine analyses the historical role of wine in the treatment of disease and preservation of health. The Hippocratic texts gave wine therapy a canonical statement over two millennia ago; but the nineteenth century was the golden age of alcohol and wine therapy. The Germans and the British gave us early canons of wine therapy and, heavily endowed with wine cultural capital, the French followed. But like all therapies, alcohol and wine therapies were not without danger and some of the 'iatrogenic' tales are still with us. In the twentieth century, many doctors rallied to the defence of wine both as a substitute for more dangerous alcoholic drinks and as an efficacious medicament, with an impressive case for the efficacy of wine in fighting bacteria, heart disease and cancer. New science based on animal models and ionic theory fortified their arguments. According to the controversial 'French Paradox', wine drinking makes it possible for a population to enjoy a high fat diet yet suffer little. Bacchic Medicine also discusses the contemporary debate over the role of alcohol and wine in preventive medicine.
