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. 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. He was
noted for his study of international relations and won a 1982 Balzan
Prize for Social Sciences for his work.
