En Languedoc au XIIIe si cle Le temps du sac de B ziers
Le sac de Béziers ; il est peu d'événements du Moyen Age qui aient eu un tel retentissement auprès de ses contemporains et peu qui aient ensuite, au fil des siècles, acquis un telle portée symbolique. Peu de villes aussi qui aient connu, au cours de leur histoire, pareilles alternances d'opulence et de malheurs. En 1209, la Croisade des Albigeois s'ouvre par la prise de Béziers. Riche et forte parmi les autres villes languedociennes, qui aurait pu alors penser qu'elle serait prise et pillée par une armée que son immensité même fragilisait ? " Tuez-les tous, Dieu reconnaîtra les siens " ! Stupeur ! Ensanglantée, Béziers ne s'est plus guère rebellée. Qu'aurait été le XIIIe siècle languedocien si Narbonne et Béziers avaient réalisé l'impossible cause commune ? Mais le Languedoc est multiple, une mosaïque d'intérêts divergents. Ces divergences font sa faiblesse et sa force. Car un demi-siècle plus tard, malgré sa haute noblesse terrassée, le Languedoc, et Béziers au premier plan, font preuve d'une étonnante capacité de rebond et de renouvellement. A l'occasion du huitième centenaire de cet épisode tragique de la Croisade, un groupe de médiévistes, spécialistes des pays d'oc, l'a reconsidéré en le mettant au centre d'une histoire aussi large que nécessaire, politique, sociale, économique, culturelle, à partir de documents peu ou mal connus. De part et d'autre de cette horrible année 1209, son passé de vicomté languedocienne et son avenir intégré au royaume de France apparaissent sous des traits nouveaux.

A History of Balance 1250 1375
This groundbreaking history of balance reveals how a new model of equilibrium emerged during the medieval period. Although the ideal of balance and its central place in the workings of nature and society remained unchanged, a greatly expanded sense of what balance is, and can be, developed.
The Grail Legend
Writing in a clear and readable style, two leading women of the Jungian school of psychology present this legend as a living myth that is profoundly relevant to modern life. 17 illustrations.
Domesday Book is the most famous English public record, and it is probably the most remarkable statistical document in the history of Europe. It calls itself merely a descriptio and it acquired its name in the following century because its authority seemed comparable to that of the Book by which one day all will be judged (Revelation 20:12). It is not surprising that so many scholars have felt its fascination, and have discussed again and again what it says about economic, social and legal matters. But it also tells us much about the countryside of the eleventh century, and the present volume is the seventh of a series concerned with this geographical information. As the final volume, it seeks to sum up the main features of the Domesday geography of England as a whole, and to reconstruct, as far as the materials allow, the scene which King William's clerks saw as they made their great inquest.
The Rival Queens
The riveting true story of mother-and-daughter queens Catherine de' Medici and Marguerite de Valois, whose wildly divergent personalities and turbulent relationship changed the shape of their tempestuous and dangerous century. Set in magnificent Renaissance France, this is the story of two remarkable women, a mother and daughter driven into opposition by a terrible betrayal that threatened to destroy the realm. Catherine de' Medici was a ruthless pragmatist and powerbroker who dominated the throne for thirty years. Her youngest daughter Marguerite, the glamorous "Queen Margot," was a passionate free spirit, the only adversary whom her mother could neither intimidate nor control. When Catherine forces the Catholic Marguerite to marry her Protestant cousin Henry of Navarre against her will, and then uses her opulent Parisian wedding as a means of luring his followers to their deaths, she creates not only savage conflict within France but also a potent rival within her own family. Rich in detail and vivid prose, Goldstone's narrative unfolds as a thrilling historical epic. Treacherous court politics, poisonings, inter-national espionage, and adultery form the background to a story that includes such celebrated figures as Elizabeth I, Mary, Queen of Scots, and Nostradamus. The Rival Queens is a dangerous tale of love, betrayal, ambition, and the true nature of courage, the echoes of which still resonate.
The Economics and Sociology of Capitalism
The renowned economist Joseph A. Schumpeter (1883-1950) made seminal contributions not only to economic theory but also to sociology and economic history. His work is now attracting wide attention among sociologists, as well as experiencing a remarkable revival among economists. This anthology, which serves as an excellent introduction to Schumpeter, emphasizes his broad socio-economic vision and his attempt to analyze economic reality from several different perspectives. An ambitious introductory essay by Richard Swedberg uses many new sources to enhance our understanding of Schumpeter's life and work and to help analyze his fascinating character. This essay stresses Schumpeter's ability to draw on several social sciences in his study of capitalism. Some of the articles in the anthology are published for the first time. The most important of these are Schumpeter's Lowell Lectures from 1941, "An Economic Interpretation of Our Time." Also included is the transcript of his lecture "Can Capitalism Survive?" (1936) and the high-spirited debate that followed. The anthology contains many of Schumpeter's classical sociological articles, such as his essays on the tax state, imperialism, and social classes. And, finally, there are lesser known articles on the future of private enterprise, on the concept of rationality in the social sciences, and on the work of Max Weber, with whom Schumpeter collaborated on several occasions.
