This is just a very short post for those interested in a basic talk about Galois, his relations with the French mathematicians of his time, and a general introduction to the "theory of ambiguity". The talk is in French, available at http://www.alainconnes.org/fr/links.php

For Galois theory/history of maths enthusiasts: mathematical writings of Galois is translated into English by Peter Brown and just been published by the European Mathematical Society Publishing House

Also, the French web site, Images des Mathematiques http://images.math.cnrs.fr/
Now has Alain's video talk plus several other quite interesting historical documents on Galois.
