Boniface’s targets are familiar faces to the French public: In he joined the Free French forces in London; in Marchhe was sent to France to prepare the Resistance for the imminent Allied invasion.

In contrast, today’s French talk shows are silly affairs. Pascal Boniface’s discourse is also of a very low quality. She is quite loud, quite impatient, yet her reasoning is not too sound. Far too often they have chosen to be wrong with Sartre than right with Aron. That Debray appeared on Apostrophes shortly after denouncing it seemed yet another sign of Pivot’s influence.

He also excels at giving epithets. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Open Preview See a Problem? Aug 20, Ietrio rated it did not like it Recommends it for: The purchase of “Indignez-Vous! Yes, 14 publishers rejected his manuscript, some of them citing fear of BHL’s wrath. Parisian intellectuals used to do what they do best: To mock BHL—he has long been known by his initials, which raises the question of why the author of Being and Nothingness was never called JPS—has long been a great sport in Paris.

For Pascal Boniface the book “Frere Tariq” is filled with mistakes and lie. Or what is his game. The quote is broken. Oddly, the publishing culture of 21st-century France most closely resembles that of the Old Regime in inntellectuels 18th century.
