Jean-Baptiste Duroselle (17 November 1917, Paris
– 12 September 1994, Arradon) was a French historian and professor. He had initially considered an army career or study of geography, but his poor skills in mathematics and drawing led him to turn to historical study. Pierre Renouvin's course fascinated him, and he became his assistant in 1945.[1] He went on to teach at University of Saarbrücken from 1950 to 1957 and returned to the Sorbonne
afterward. Duroselle's writings include La Decadence (1980), L'Abime (1985), and others.[2] He was noted for his study of international relations and won a 1982 Balzan Prize for Social Sciences for his work.[3] Selected bibliography[edit]
