Viel Amüsantes ist dabei: Wie steuert guy schweißgebadet einen Neuwagen durch Kairo? Wie übt guy Gelassenheit angesichts der kafkaesken Arabesken aus 7000 Jahren ägyptischer Bürokratie?
Der Kampf ums tägliche Überleben: Sana', die "Scheichin der Gasse", streitet auf eigene Faust für Gerechtigkeit in einem Kairoer Slumviertel. Abu Aschraf verdient als Metallarbeiter forty Euro im Monat: Wie soll er zu Schulanfang seine Kinder einkleiden?
Auch ungewöhnliche Berichte aus den Kriegsgebieten enthält dieses Buch: Ein Besuch bei der Antiquitätenhändlerin Madame Pio weckt Erinnerungen an das alte, mondäne Bagdad. Und während im Südlibanon israelische Bomben fallen, kehren die Menschen in Beirut an die Uferpromenade zurück und rauchen ihre Wasserpfeifen.
So entsteht eine bunte arabische Alltagscollage, die uns unsere unmittelbaren und doch so fernen Nachbarn ein wenig näher bringt.

Download Descendants de Chouans: Histoire et culture populaire dans by Bernadette Bucher PDF

By Bernadette Bucher

Contrairement au mythe toujours vivace d’une paysannerie vendéenne passive et fidèle à un ancien régime catholique, féodal et monarchique, Bernadette Bucher nous plonge dans une histoire profonde jalonnée de ruptures, de rebellions populaires et renversements d’alliance à l’égard de l’Eglise, des seigneurs et du roi. L’importance du protestantisme sur l. a. terre même des guerres de Vendée n’en est pas l. a. moindre shock.

Les particularités de l’économie domestique (coublage, salariés dits à mi-viage), l’étonnante vitalité des codes de conduite et des valeurs-charnières (vaillance, simplicité, économie), los angeles richesse des rites de sociabilité (mariage, chasse à courre, caves des hommes) mettent en lumière une logique inattendue des changes du monde rural. À l’heure où l’Europe cherche à se créer une identité supranationale, Descendants de Chouans nous invite ainsi à revoir le suggestion même de « communauté » à los angeles lumière du modèle vendéen, et à redonner au quotidien le rôle qui leur revient dans les métamorphoses de l’Histoire.
