Histoire de la France contemporaine, t. III. Le Crépuscule by Quentin Deluermoz

By Quentin Deluermoz

Alors que l. a. France vient de connaître quatre régimes différents en un demi-siècle, los angeles révolution de 1848 semble rouvrir le temps des remous et des hésitations. Et pourtant, de l’éphémère Deuxième République au moment Empire et jusqu’à l. a. Commune de Paris, c’est bien l’expérience démocratique qui fait ses armes. Balbutiante, encore fragile, l. a. démocratie parlementaire s’impose ainsi définitivement à l’issue de l. a. guerre franco-prussienne de 1871 – clôturant près d’un siècle de bouleversements politiques.

Rien d’évident, pourtant, dans cette victoire a posteriori. Derrière les événements politiques, cet ouvrage retrace les avancées et les reculs, les intuitions fulgurantes de l’avenir comme les ultimes lueurs du passé, et brosse l’ample tableau d’une France résolument engagée dans son siècle : du suffrage universel aux libertés publiques, des grands travaux urbains à l’essor du monde ouvrier, de l’expansion coloniale au soutien apporté au printemps des peuples, s'impose une « modernité » aux multiples visages, parfois contradictoires.

Bien plus, retraçant l’histoire nationale à l’aune des événements européens, Quentin Deluermoz met au jour un « esprit du siècle » propre à l. a. France. Encore indicible, presque imperceptible, quelque selected de neuf, qui transformera durablement le will pay, est en teach de prendre, tandis que l'ombre de los angeles Révolution française jette ses derniers feux.

While an overview of how these various terms for MB fortifications were employed may seem pedantic, the differences in terminology reveal the gradual emergence of a glossary for these archaeological features, their function and their historical context, as they were increasingly studied. 4. THE ORIGINS OF RAMPARTS REVISITED Although many questions had been addressed in earlier scholarship with regard to MB fortifications, Peter Parr’s (1968) article on The Origin of the Rampart Fortifications of Middle Bronze Age Palestine and Syria was the first which sought to directly address 8 Kenyon also followed suit with the misidentification of Tell el-Yehudiyeh as another example of a site with earthen rampart fortifications (1966:70).

Until that time scholars had merely cited what amounted to no more than survey data for the ramparts of Qatna where du Mesnil du Buisson (1926–29) had excavated (see du Mesnil du Buisson 1935a). However, since neither he nor the most recent expeditions have ever actually excavated the ramparts the task still remains to be undertaken. Similarly, while preliminary reports were made available after the excavations of the fortifications of Byblos during the 1950’s, the French mission failed to provide the final reports for these excavations with plans and section drawings following Dunand’s death (see Byblos in Appendix B).

Kaplan 1975:9) This inspiration Kaplan noted, building upon the argument advanced by J. Bottero (Posener, et al. 1971), can be traced back to the building of the wall of Muriq-Tidnim (lit. “keeping Tidnum (Amorites) at a distance”) which was built by the Ur III king Šu-Sin at the end of the third millennium. Kaplan postulated that the wall was probably built upon “parts of existing levees of the main irrigation canals and only added the needed links between them to complete their continuous defence line” (1975:12).
