Voici publiée pour l. a. première fois l. a. model intégrale des Mémoires de Raymond Aron (1905-1983), enrichie de trois grands textes inédits qui confirment l'intelligence d'analyste et de visionnaire d'un des plus grands observateurs du XXe siècle. Ce quantity est préfacé par Nicolas Baverez, disciple d'Aron s'il en est, qui, de manière magistrale, restitue à l. a. pensée aronienne toute son actualité. Il comprend en outre un avant-propos tort éclairant de Tzvetan Todorov. Ce livre est le récit d'une rencontre: celle d'un siècle convulsif et d'une intelligence avide de le comprendre. C'est aussi le témoignage d'un homme qui s'interroge sur lui-même et son oeuvre, sur les êtres et sur l. a. vie. Spectateur engagé, il a côtoyé les acteurs éminents de son temps, de De Gaulle et Kissinger à Malraux, Sartre et Camus, et brosse de chacun d'eux un portrait sans complaisance. Mais cet ouvrage dresse avant tout le bilan des réflexions d'un grand philosophe politique sur le monde moderne, en marge de l'académisme intellectuel de son époque. Les trois inédits ici rassemblés, portant l'un sur le bilan économique et social de los angeles gauche au pouvoir, le deuxième sur le moralisme de los angeles diplomatie américaine et le conflit israélo-arabe, le dernier sur l'hégémonie soviétique, illustrent on ne peut mieux l'indépendance d'esprit de leur auteur. A l'heure où los angeles France et le inonde ont besoin de retrouver raison, rigueur et cohérence, relire ou découvrir Raymond Aron est plus que jamais nécessaire.

Parlare della storia messenica significa evocare, fatalmente, los angeles vicenda del popolo ebraico los angeles diaspora, l'agognato ritorno nella terra dei padri. Quella precisa identità culturale che è tuttavia riconosciuta facilmente ai figli di Sion, è si direbbe, altrettanto facilmente negata ai Messeni. Tre ininterrotti secoli di sottomissione alla potente Sparta, durante i quali los angeles storia, in Messenia, si esaurisce in alcuni tentativi di ribellione all'invasore, appaiono evidentemente un pace troppo lungo in keeping with aver consentito una reale preservazione della propria identità e della propria cultura. Quello che in keeping withò sembrava un tentativo votato al fallimento (ricongiungere fra loro los angeles Messenia libera dell'età micenea e oscura con los angeles Messenia liberata da Epaminonda) si rivela, nell'arco di queste pagine, impresa possibile; e l. a. cosiddetta "deculturazione" dei Messeni ci appare piuttosto un'identità culturale sommersa e silenziosa, quasi racchiusa in un bozzolo, che attende soltanto il momento di riaprirsi alla storia.
