Défaite militaire et révolution antidémocratique. Le parallèle entre l’Athènes de 404 et la France de 1940 dans Les Oligarques de Jules Isaac.

Abstract : Jules Isaac wrote Les Oligarques in hiding in 1942. This book focusses on Athenian adversaries of democracy who took advantage of Athens’ defeat by Sparta in order to dissolve the democracy with the help of the enemy. Resemblances to contemporary events, once France was defeated by Germany, inspired Isaac to develop this subject: the installation of an anti-democratic government that collaborated with Hitler, the general abolition of civil liberties, the persecutions of Jews, in particular the civic degradation of French citizens such as the author himself, influenced Isaac’s interpretation of the ancient events in a book that deliberately defies classification according to genre.
