Le naturalisme : une littérature de "roussins", de chiffonniers et de vidangeurs acharnés à collectionner des histoires véreuses dans la "bourriche du terre-à-terre", le "panorama du comme-c'est-ça" ? Cette étude permet, en fait, de redécouvrir autour de Zola des romanciers qui poussent toutes les portes, explorent les soutes et les cuisines du Second Empire et de la Troisième République avec un irrespect tonique, une irrévérence exemplaire.

The White Bull
Author: Voltaire, Fran Ois-Marie Arouet
The princess Amasidia, daughter of Amasis, King of Tanis in Egypt, took a walk upon the highway of Peluaium with the ladies of her train. She was sunk in deep melancholy. Tears gushed from her beautiful eyes. The cause of her grief was known, as well as the fears she entertained lest that grief should displease the king, her father. The old man, Mambres, ancient magician and eunuch of the Pharoahs, was beside her, and seldom left her. He was present at her birth. He had educated her, and taught her all that a fair princess was allowed to know of the sciences of Egypt. The mind of Amasidia equaled her beauty. Her sensibility and tenderness rivaled the charms of her person; and it was this sensibility which cost her so many tears. The princess was twenty-four years old, the magician, Mambres, about thirteen hundred. It was he, as every one knows, who had that famous dispute with Moses, in which the victory was so long doubtful between these two profound philosophers. If Mambres yielded, it was owing to the visible protection of the celestial powers, who favored his rival. It required gods to overcome Mambres

The Dreyfus affair remains one of the most famous miscarriages of justice in modern times. Eric Cahm's study does justice to the human drama, whilst also throwing light on the wider society and politics of the Third Republic in the traumatic years after the Franco-Prussian War. This wide-ranging survey - the only short modern account in English anchors the Affair in its full social and political context. Organised round a narrative of events, it offers portraits of all the main characters, substantial extracts from key sources in fresh translations, a comprehensive bibliography and a detailed chronology.
The Dreyfus Affair
Author: Emile Zola
Publisher: Yale University Press
This book is the first to provide, in English translation, the full extent of Zola's writings on the Dreyfus affair, and features the complete text of "J'accuse", Zola's public letter to the French authorities, a century after its first publication in 1898. It also includes impassioned "open letters" to leading French newspapers, interviews with Zola at his home, intimate letters to his wife and friends written during his year long exile in England, and his final articles, written when Dreyfus was close to being pardoned. The documents represent, in their polemical entirety, a classic defense of human rights and a seating denunciation of fanaticism and prejudice.
Les Fous de la République
Author: Pierre Birnbaum
Publisher: Stanford University Press
This book provides a highly original account of the Franco-Jewish political and administrative elite--generals, politicians, judges, magistrates, and prefects--from the final decades of the nineteenth century to the Vichy regime. United by an extensive network of family relations and a fierce devotion to secular republicanism, these Jews of State (the author’s term to distinguish them from their predecessors, court Jews, who were more oriented toward the world of business and banking) formed a group that perpetuated itself over three generations. The book dissolves the supposedly marked dichotomy between assimilated and unassimilated Jews in French society by showing how this Franco-Jewish elite was simultaneously active at the highest levels of French professional and administrative life and deeply involved in Jewish cultural life.
