"Nous les avons accueillis avec sympathie, un brin amusés par leur accoutrement folklorique. Quelques années plus tard, nous découvrîmes presque à l’improviste que cet islamisme qui nous paraissait si pauvrement insignifiant s’était répandu dans tout le pays." Boualem Sansal, l’une des grandes voix de la littérature algérienne, s’interroge sur les acteurs de la propagation de l'islamisme : les États prosélytes, les élites opportunistes, les intellectuels silencieux, les médias, "la rue arabe"... Il questionne aussi l'échec de l’intégration dans les pays d’accueil des émigrés. Une synthèse engagée, documentée, des prises de position humanistes qui dénoncent à la fois le pouvoir militaire algérien et le totalitarisme islamiste.

A tribute to George Orwell's 1984 and a cry of protest against totalitarianism of all kinds, Sansal's 2084 tells the story of a near future in which religious extremists have established an oppressive caliphate where autonomus thought is forbidden. It is the year 2084. In the kingdom of Abistan—named after the prophet Abi, earthly messenger of the god Yolah—citizens submit to a single god, demonstrating their devotion by kneeling in prayer nine times a day. Autonomous thought has been banned, remembering is forbidden, and an omnipresent surveillance system instantly informs the authorities of every deviant act, thought, or idea. The kingdom is blessed and its citizens are happy, filled with a sense of purpose and piety. Those who are not—the heretics—are put to death by stoning or beheading in city squares. But Ati has met people who think differently; in ghettos and caves, hidden from the authorities, exist the last living heretics and free-thinkers of Abistan. Under their influence, Ati begins to doubt. He begins to think. Now, he will have to defend his thoughts with his life. "[In 2084] Sansal dared to go much further than I did," said Michel Houellebecq, the controversial novelist most recently of Submission. 2084 is a cry of freedom, a call to rebellion, a gripping satirical novel of ideas, and an indictment of the religious fundamentalism that, with its hypocrisy and closed-mindedness, threatens our modern democracies and the ideals on which they are founded.

Histoire de la littérature du Maghreb

La littérature maghrébine d'expression française fait aujourd'hui, incontestablement, partie intégrante des paysages culturels algérien, tunisien et marocain. Les oeuvres de Kateb Yacine, Salah Garmadi ou Driss Chraïbi figurent ainsi dans les manuels scolaires et les programmes universitaires maghrébins. Il faut, cependant, reconnaître que la place conquise par les poètes et romanciers du Maghreb en France demeure encore assez restreinte en dehors de quelques cercles de spécialistes des " littératures venues d'ailleurs ", abstraction faite de certains prix venant récompenser, de temps à autre, des écrivains qui méritent une bien plus large audience. Aussi les auteurs ont-ils l'ambition d'aider à mieux faire connaître la jeune littérature francophone du Maghreb, vieille d'à peine un demi-siècle, mais avec déjà à son actif une belle moisson d'oeuvres tant romanesques que poétiques ou dramatiques. L'éclairage que celles-ci apportent se révèle d'ailleurs indispensable à une saine appréciation de l'évolution politique et sociale des trois pays concernés depuis leur indépendance. L'ouvrage présente ainsi un panorama qui situe les écrivains dans leur cadre historique et donne un aperçu de la diversité et de la richesse de leurs productions.

Un après-midi dans le désert

Un après-midi dans le désert

Year: 2008
Un après-midi, au début des années 1990, une lettre longtemps retardée arrive dans la poste délabrée d'un village perdu d'Afrique du Nord. Nous sommes aux confins du désert, au pied de la Montagne du Lion, un endroit où régna longtemps une douceur de vivre incomparable. A l'aube du XXIe siècle, pourtant, le village s'est transformé en enfer. Pour dire ce basculement d'une époque à une autre, Mustapha Tlili a choisi de faire la chronique minutieuse de ce village et de ses habitants : Mathilde, la patronne de l'hôtel des Peupliers ; Hafnawi, le bédouin ; Ursuline de Kergariou, l'aristocrate; Bermann, l'instituteur; les fils exilés de Horïa El-Gharib, la descendante des savants-guerriers de la Montagne ; l'imam... autant de destins individuels que l'histoire du XXe siècle semble avoir balayés sans le moindre remords, laissant comme amnésique la terre qui les a vus naître. Retrouvant les amours et les jalousies, les espoirs et les défaites de tous ces personnages, l'auteur nous offre, l'espace d'un après-midi, une méditation profonde sur le temps et les hommes comme il nous est rarement donné de lire.

You probably know, or think you know, quite a bit about what happened in the 20th century – chances are, if you’re reading this, you lived through at least some of it – and you may have referenced the Cuban Missile Crisis, the double helix, or the Wall Street Crash in conversation. But even for people who were there, it was the fastest-moving hundred years in history, so refresh your memory with these pacey profiles on everything from Sputnik to Stonewall. Twentieth Century presents a unique approach to modern history, condensing 100 years of innovation and art, politics and conflict, triumph and disaster, into 50 graphic snapshots that offer an instant appreciation of the way the world revolves and evolves. Consider which events define a period of history and why. From the Red Army to Black Monday, from Woodstock to the World Wide Web, this is the fastest way to travel in time.

Harraga. The term means "to burn," and it refers to those Algerians in exile, who burn their identity papers to seek asylum in Europe. But for Boualem Sansal, whose novels are banned in his own country, there is a kind of internal exile even for those who stay; and for no one is it worse than for the country's women. Lamia is thirty-five years old, a doctor. Having lost most of her family, she is accustomed to living alone, unmarried and contentedly independent when a teenage girl, Chérifa, arrives on her doorstep. Chérifa is pregnant by Lamia's brother in exile -- Lamia's first indication since he left that he is alive -- and she'll surely be killed if she returns to her parents. Lamia grudgingly offers her hospitality; Chérifa ungratefully accepts it. But she is restless and obstinate, and before long she runs away, out into the hostile streets -- leaving Lamia to track her, fearing for the life of the girl she has come, improbably, to love as family. Boualem Sansal creates, in Lamia, an incredible narrator: cultured, caustic, and compassionate, with an ironic contempt for the government, she is utterly convincing. With his deceptively simple story, Sansal delivers a brave indictment of fundamentalism that is also warm and wonderfully humane.

"A Lapland hometown hoodlum named Marzipan Räikkönen is killed near his home. But the who, why, and how of the murder no one knows, not even the victim himself. His death launches a series of events recounted in the first person by thirty-five different people touched by Marzipan's murder. The witty story line cleverly connects the dots among the personalities, including the ambulance drivers, detectives, family members, neighbors, two-bit criminals, and even the minister officiating at the funeral, to finally reveal the killer.This fast moving crime novel, full of wry Finnish humor, deepens into a multilayered panorama about society, its people, and ultimately justice" --Page 4 of cover.

Ce ne sont pas des malades comme les autres... L'entretien des auteurs avec le professeur Jean Bernard l'atteste. Voici quelques extraits : " On a dit parfois que les puissants de ce monde n'étaient pas bien soignés parce qu'ils avaient une idée préconçue sur les maladies et les médecins, la médecine officielle et les charlatans. On pourrait démontrer, statistiquement, que les chefs d'Etat ont une durée de vie plus courte que l'ouvrier du coin souffrant de la même maladie.... Lorsque j'ai soigné des hommes politiques de haut rang, j'ai souvent été surpris de la crédulité que manifestaient ces dirigeants vis-à-vis des médecines parallèles.... Il faut tenir compte de la mentalité très particulière de ces malades qui nous gouvernent et qui refusent d'une part, de considérer leur état de santé comme incompatible avec la direction d'un pays ou d'une armée, et d'autre part, d'admettre que les conséquences de leur maladie peuvent être graves pour leurs concitoyens.... On peut parfaitement imaginer une commission médicale dont les membres seraient désignés par le Conseil constitutionnel. Elle examinerait le président de la République chaque année et pourrait constater le début d'une maladie grave. Elle garderait le secret quelques mois et déciderait, à un moment donné, d'alerter le Conseil constitutionnel qui apprécierait et prendrait une décision. Les médecins doivent rester des consultants et non pas des décideurs. "

Religious thinkers, political leaders, lawmakers, writers, and philosophers have shaped the 1,400-year-long development of the world's second-largest religion. But who were these people? What do we know of their lives and the ways in which they influenced their societies? In Islamic Civilization in Thirty Lives, the distinguished historian of Islam Chase F. Robinson draws on the long tradition in Muslim scholarship of commemorating in writing the biographies of notable figures, but he weaves these ambitious lives together to create a rich narrative of Islamic civilization, from the Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century to the era of the world conquerer Timur and the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II in the fifteenth. Beginning in Islam’s heartland, Mecca, and ranging from North Africa and Iberia in the west to Central and East Asia, Robinson not only traces the rise and fall of Islamic states through the biographies of political and military leaders who worked to secure peace or expand their power, but also discusses those who developed Islamic law, scientific thought, and literature. What emerges is a fascinating portrait of rich and diverse Islamic societies. Alongside the famous characters who colored this landscape—including Muhammad’s cousin ’Ali; the Crusader-era hero Saladin; and the poet Rumi—are less well-known figures, such as Ibn Fadlan, whose travels in Eurasia brought fascinating first-hand accounts of the Volga Vikings to the Abbasid Caliph; the eleventh-century Karima al-Marwaziyya, a woman scholar of Prophetic traditions; and Abu al-Qasim Ramisht, a twelfth-century merchant millionaire. An illuminating read for anyone interested in learning more about this often-misunderstood civilization, this book creates a vivid picture of life in all arenas of the pre-modern Muslim world.
