Summary:

« ... je partage l'humanité en deux catégories fondamentalement différentes : une poignée de gens qui savent ce qu'il en est des réalités et l'énorme majorité qui ne sait pas. » Retranché dans sa citadelle dominant la plaine, le grand maître Hassan Ibn Sabbâh mène, à la fin du XIe siècle, une guerre sainte en Iran. Il n’a que peu de soldats et seuls ses proches le connaissent intimement. Parti de presque rien, sans armée, sans terre et sans guère d’appuis à la cour, il dominera le monde. Des hommes seront prêts à mourir pour lui avec le sourire aux lèvres. Des foules entières se prosterneront sans combattre. Un millénaire plus tard, la manipulation des masses, telle qu’il la pratiqua, continue d’ébranler les empires modernes. Mélange d’aventures et de philosophie politique, Alamut n’évoque la violence des complots d’alors que pour mieux renvoyer aux problèmes cruciaux des civilisations modernes.

Summary:

Iraq, the land of Hamurabi and Harun al-Rashid, has played a long and unique role in the history of human civilization. The oldest civilization known to man evolved on the shores of its twin rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates. The great cities of antiquity-Uruk, Ur, Akkad, Babylon, Basra, Mawsil, and Baghdad-were major centers of high culture and political power for much of the course of human history. This reference begins with the earliest civilizations and covers the many periods that followed, ranging from the history of ancient Mesopotamia to the Abbasid Empire to present-day Iraq. Included are a historical overview; a country profile; a review of the economy, oil, fauna, and political institution; coverage of the Iran-Iraq War; and coverage of the Kuwait invasion and the second Gulf War and other conflicts. The major ethnic groups such as the Kurds, the Turkumans and the Assyrians, Islam and Muslim sects, Christianity and Christian sects, as well as other religious groups are profiled. Dictionary entries also highlight the main political, religious, and ideological parties, groups, and organizations; major historical personalities; languages; literature; and cultural elements. A broad range of topics, both ancient and modern, are dealt with throughout the introduction and the dictionary, and a comprehensive bibliography complements this extensive historical reference.

Summary:

Samarcande, c’est la Perse d’Omar Khayyam, poète du vin, libre penseur, astronome de génie, mais aussi celle de Hassan Sabbah, fondateur de l’ordre des Assassins, la secte la plus redoutable de l’Histoire. Samarcande, c’est l’Orient du XIXe siècle et du début du XXe, le voyage dans un univers où les rêves de liberté ont toujours su défier les fanatismes. Samarcande, c’est l’aventure d’un manuscrit né au XIe siècle, égaré lors des invasions mongoles et retrouvé six siècles plus tard. Une fois encore, nous conduisant sur la route de la soie à travers les plus envoûtantes cités d’Asie, Amin Maalouf nous ravit par son extraordinaire talent de conteur. A la suite d’Edgar Allan Poe, il nous dit : « Et maintenant, promène ton regard sur Samarcande ! N’est-elle pas reine de la terre , Fière, au-dessus de toutes les villes, et dans ses mains leurs destinées ? »

Depuis le XIIe siecle, l'imagination des Europeens a ete captivee par des contes fantastiques sur les Assassins, leur mysterieux dirigeant et leurs forteresses isolees dans les chaines montagneuses de la Syrie et du nord de l'Iran. Ces legendes firent leur apparition lorsque les croises europeens du Levant etablirent leurs premiers contacts avec la branche syrienne des ismaeliens nizarites qui, sur l'ordre de leur dirigeant, entreprenaient de perilleuses missions pour tuer leurs ennemis. Elaborees au fil des ans, elles atteignirent leur forme la plus aboutie dans le recit de Marco Polo selon lequel le dirigeant nizarite, qualifie de Vieux de la Montagne , etait suppose controler le comportement de ses disciples a l'aide de haschisch et d'un secret jardin du paradis. L'influence de ces legendes fut telle que le terme assassin entra dans les langues europeennes comme nom commun signifiant meurtrier. Quant aux ismaeliens nizarites, ils furent depeints comme un sinistre ordre d'assassins tant par la mythologie populaire que par les specialistes occidentaux.
