A New York Times Notable Book of 2015 -- Michiko Kakutani, The Top Books of 2015, New York Times -- TIME Magazine Top Ten Books of 2015 -- Publishers Weekly Best Books of the Year -- Financial Times Best Books of the Year "A tour-de-force reimagining of Camus's The Stranger, from the point of view of the mute Arab victims." --The New Yorker He was the brother of "the Arab" killed by the infamous Meursault, the antihero of Camus's classic novel. Seventy years after that event, Harun, who has lived since childhood in the shadow of his sibling's memory, refuses to let him remain anonymous: he gives his brother a story and a name--Musa--and describes the events that led to Musa's casual murder on a dazzlingly sunny beach. In a bar in Oran, night after night, he ruminates on his solitude, on his broken heart, on his anger with men desperate for a god, and on his disarray when faced with a country that has so disappointed him. A stranger among his own people, he wants to be granted, finally, the right to die. The Stranger is of course central to Daoud's story, in which he both endorses and criticizes one of the most famous novels in the world. A worthy complement to its great predecessor, The Meursault Investigation is not only a profound meditation on Arab identity and the disastrous effects of colonialism in Algeria, but also a stunning work of literature in its own right, told in a unique and affecting voice.

La problematique soulevee dans le present ouvrage est liee au champ des politiques educatives et de la sociologie de l'education. Avec une presence dans 130 pays, 470 etablissements et plus de 280.000 eleves scolarises, la France dispose du plus important reseau de scolarisation au-dela de ses frontieres. L'Agence pour l'Enseignement Francais a l'Etranger (AEFE), creee en 1990 et placee sous la tutelle du Ministere des Affaires etrangeres et europeennes, poursuit une double mission: assurer la continuite du service public d'education aupres des enfants d'expatries et contribuer a l'influence et au rayonnement de la France en accueillant des eleves etrangers, qui ont vocation a propager la langue et la culture francaises par leur appartenance aux elites politiques et economiques du pays d'implantation. Cette etude envisage de mettre en parallele la politique educative pronee par l'AEFE (curriculum "formel") et la realite sociale d'un etablissement de son reseau (curriculum "reel"). Elle vise principalement a caracteriser l'implantation des programmes francais a l'etranger et a verifier si l'enseignement tient compte ou non, des particularites culturelles de son public.

Out of the core of experience, these essays began as obsessions. Whether founded in some strongly lived moment, deeply held conviction, long-term interest, or persistent and unanswered question, these essays reveal the writer’s voice—personal, often passionate, full of conviction, certainly unmistakable. Marianna Torgovnick has drawn together writings by leading contemporary scholars in the humanities, representing fields of literary criticism, American and Romance studies, anthropology, and art history. Eloquent Obsessions presents cultural criticism at its thoughtful and writerly best. This collection explores a wide range of issues at the intersection of personal and social history—from growing up in the South to exploring a love for France or Japan, from coming of age as a feminist to mapping the history of National Geographic, from examining the cultural "we" to diagnosing class structures in Israel or showing how photography deals with AIDS. The authors here bring writerly genres—autobiography, memoir, or travel narrative—to intellectual tasks such as textual readings or investigating the histories of institutions. Continuing a tradition of cultural criticism established by writers such as Samuel Johnson, Zora Neale Hurston, Edmund Wilson, Hannah Arendt, or Raymond Williams, these essays seek to make a difference, to have an impact, and are based on the fundamental premise that writers have something to say about society. Simply put, this collection offers models for writing eloquently about culture—models that are intellectually and socially responsible, but attuned to the critic’s voice and the reader’s ear. Aimed not just at academics but also at a more general audience alive to the concerns and interests of society today, Eloquent Obsessions, a revised and expanded version of a special issue of South Atlantic Quarterly (Winter 1992), will extend beyond the academy contemporary ways of writing about culture.

Au XIXe siècle, le répertoire dramatique français a connu un extraordinaire succès dans le monde entier, de la même façon que le cinéma américain domine de nos jours les écrans des cinq continents. Jouées en français ou traduites, les pièces françaises ont été applaudies sous toutes les latitudes, au point qu'on a pu écrire, en 1856, que « l'imagination de la France » était devenue « l'imagination du monde ». C'est cette page méconnue de l'histoire des relations culturelles internationales que les vingt-neuf études rassemblées ici entendent retracer. De l'Australie au Québec, de Naples à New York, le présent ouvrage permet de comprendre les différentes formes prises par cette suprématie qui, loin d'être anecdotique, a rendu possible la diffusion des idées et des mœurs françaises. A l'heure de « l'exception culturelle », il n'est pas inutile de se souvenir de ce qui fut un véritable « phénomène de société » à l'échelle mondiale.
