  • Ce recueil est une "saga poétique" évoquant un peuple premier qui voit avec tristesse et quelque peu de crainte, son monde connu peu à peu s'effacer ou se transformer avec l'irruption puis la présence d'un autre venu le dominer. Ces textes abordent les thèmes de l'incompréhension, de la domination et de la prédation. Mais surtout, ils parlent du temps, l'usure du temps et encore plus de la mort.

  • Philosophie, poésie, mystique : entre ces champs divers de la connaissance et de l'action, le présent ouvrage, en décrivant l'efflorescence des formes montre l'implication de l'esthétique littéraire dans la philosophie d'aujourd'hui.

  • La pire chose

    J.E. Birk


    Islande, Stonehenge, Londres, Paris...
    Pour l'observateur occasionnel, cela ressemble à un voyage de rêve. Pour Tate O'Reilly, c'est tout sauf ça. C'est un homme en mission qui doit réparer une grave erreur, et rien ne le retiendra - certainement pas ses amis ou sa famille. Pour lui, tout se résume à une chose simple : il doit réparer ce qu'il a cassé.
    Ce sur quoi il ne compte pas, c'est de rencontrer Gabriel Carillo. Gabriel est gentil, mystérieux et semble avoir pour mission de veiller à ce que leurs chemins continuent de se croiser. Mais Tate cache un très grand secret - un secret qu'il est certain que même Gabriel ne peut pas pardonner.
    Le passé d'un homme doit-il déterminer son avenir ? Au milieu de villes chargées d'histoire, Tate va le découvrir.

  • Wild Flowers of Chalk and Limestone will urge many to follow in the author's footsteps in search of the rich flora which make our chalk downs and limestone cliffs so fascinating to explore. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com
    Few areas can boast so many rare and beautiful wild flowers as those of the chalk and limestone. Few areas, too, have so much lovely scenery in which to search them out. Mr. Lousley's vivid and authoritative presentation of his subject shows that he has made full use of these opportunities. His special affection is for the woods and chalk downs of south-eastern England, of which he has a knowledge almost unsurpassed.
    Nevertheless, in this book he has also given us an admirable survey of all the important limestone regions in the country from the Devonian formation at Berry Head to the oolite of the Cotswolds and the great carboniferous stretches of the north. This book will urge many to follow in the author's footsteps in search of the rich flora which make our chalk downs and limestone cliffs so fascinating to explore.

  • Oman today is a rapidly modernizing and peaceful country on the fringes of a region in turmoil. It does, however, have a long history of internal strife. In the twentieth century, this strife took the form of two internal conflicts. The Northern Oman or al-Jabal al-Akhdar War of the 1950s was a struggle between the forces of the old tribally based Imamate and the newer Sultanate in the northern part of the country. In the Dhufar War of the 1960s-70s an anti-Sultanate - and later Marxist - front sought secession in the south. J. E. Peterson takes a detailed look at these two wars in the context of insurgency and counter-insurgency warfare. He surveys Oman's transition from a strictly traditional regime controlling only parts of the country to a modern, inclusive state, particularly in terms of security concerns. Peterson analyses the development of the Sultanate's successful responses to security challenges, especially in the creation and evolution of modern armed forces. 'John Peterson provides the nearest we will perhaps ever see of an official history.' David Benest, The British Army Review 'Peterson does an excellent job of developing the thesis that victory in these counter-insurgencies resulted from the two factors of establishing political legitimacy by meeting the local demands of the population and military efforts, which succeeded largely through British support.'

  • Principles of International Criminal Law has become one of the most influential textbooks in the field of international criminal justice. It offers a systematic and comprehensive analysis of the foundations and general principles of substantive international criminal law, including thorough discussion of its core crimes. It provides a detailed understanding of the general principles, sources, and evolution of international criminal law, demonstrating how it
    has developed, and how its application has changed. After establishing the general principles, the book assesses the four key international crimes as defined by the statute of the International Criminal Court: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression.

    This new edition revises and updates work with developments in international criminal justice since 2009. It includes new material on the principle of culpability as one of the fundamental principles of international criminal law, the notion of terrorism as a crime under international law, the concept of direct participation in hostilities, the problem of so-called unlawful combatants, and the issue of targeted killings. The book retains its highly-acclaimed systematic approach and consistent
    methodology, making the book essential reading for both students and scholars of international criminal law, as well as for practitioners and judges working in the field.

  • The transition from adolescence to adulthood has undergone significant changes in recent decades. Unlike a half century ago, when young people in industrialized countries moved from adolescence into young adulthood in relatively short order at around age 20, now the decade from the late teens to the late twenties is seen as an extended time of self-focused exploration and education in pursuit of optimally fulfilling relationships and careers. Recognition of this new period is stronger than ever, but an important question remains: should emerging adulthood be considered a developmental stage, or a process? In Debating Emerging Adulthood: Stage or Process? two pairs of developmental psychologists take sides in a debate that is central to the very concept of emerging adulthood. Arnett and Tanner argue that as young people around the world share demographic similarities, such as longer education and later marriage, the years between the ages 18 and 25 are best understood as entailing a new life stage. However, because the experiences of emerging adults worldwide vary according to cultural context, educational attainment, and social class, these two scholars suggest that there may not be one but many different emerging adulthoods. An important issue for this burgeoning area of inquiry is to explore and describe this variation. In contrast, Hendry and Kloep assert that stage theories have never been able to explain individual transitions across the life course; in their view, stage theories-including the theory of emerging adulthood-ought to be abolished altogether, and explanations found for the processes and mechanisms that govern human change at any age. This engaging book maps out the argument of stage or process in detail, with vigorous disagreements, conflicting alternatives, and some leavening humor, ultimately even finding some common ground. Debating Emerging Adulthood is an absolute must-read for developmental psychologists as well as anyone interested in this indisputably important time of life.

  • Why isn't wood weaker that it is? Why isn't steel stronger? Why does glass sometimes shatter and sometimes bend like spring? Why do ships break in half? What is a liquid and is treacle one? All these are questions about the nature of materials. All of them are vital to engineers but also fascinating as scientific problems. During the 250 years up to the 1920s and 1930s they had been answered largely by seeing how materials behaved in practice. But materials continued to do things that they "ought" not to have done. Only in the last 40 years have these questions begun to be answered by a new approach. Material scientists have started to look more deeply into the make-up of materials. They have found many surprises; above all, perhaps, that how a material behaves depends on how perfectly - or imperfectly - its atoms are arranged. Using both SI and imperial units, Professor Gordon's account of material science is a demonstration of the sometimes curious and entertaining ways in which scientists isolate and solve problems.

  • The greatest period of Inca expansion occured during the reigns of Pachacuti (1438-71), Tupa Inca (1471-93), and Huayna Capac (1493-1527). From the mountain stronghold of Cuzco, they subjugated the surrounding kingdoms and territories, absorbing their civilizations and their peoples. By 1525, they dominated much of the west of the continent, relying on fortified strongholds, an extensive system of roads and bridges, and obligatory military service to control local populations. This title takes a detailed look at the development of Incan fortification techniques, and examines how they came to be overrun by the Spanish conquistadors.

  • From the earliest colonial settlements to Cold War bunkers, the North American continent has been home to thousands of forts and fortress structures. Fortress America surveys the broad sweep of fortifications throughout North America-from seacoast forts of the late eighteenth century to wooden inland forts built to defend against Native American, English, French, or Spanish attack; from Civil War-era coastal and inland waterways forts to the Great Plains' forts of the Old West; from World War II subterranean bunkers to Cold War concrete missile silos. The text of Fortress America is complemented with never-before-published photographs, and extraordinary drawings, cut-aways, and diagrams illustrating the design and structure of American forts.

  • La tragédie de Lac-Mégantic a attiré l'attention générale sur le transport ferroviaire et ses dangers. D'aucuns se sont étonnés que le train passe si près du centre-ville. C'est pourtant la ville qui s'est construite autour de la voie ferrée et non l'inverse. Ce rajustement de perspective rappelle le rôle majeur joué par le train dans l'histoire du pays. Sans minimiser les conséquences dévastatrices du déraillement de l'été dernier, le dossier de printemps de Continuité fait acte de mémoire en explorant notre patrimoine ferroviaire, qu'il prenne la forme de véhicules conservés au musée, de gares transformées en centre d'interprétation, de construction de génie toujours en opération ou de tronçons de chemin de fer transformé en piste cyclable, par exemple.

  • La última década del siglo debía significar para América Latina la consolidación democrática y la inserción en la nueva economía-mundo. Pero en un contexto de crisis económica y ajuste neoliberal, el proceso resultó mucho más complejo de lo esperado. Nuevos problemas y nuevos actores cuestionaron los marcos que parecían definitivos. Nuestro continente, y dentro de él los países andinos, se encuentran así en una situación difícil pero fértil en nuevas posibilidades. El presente volumen contiene una selección de las ponencias presentadas a las Primeras Jornadas de Politología: "Las formas políticas de la democracia en los países andinos" convocadas por el Instituto Francés de Estudios Andinos (IFEA). El texto se divide en cuatro secciones que abordan temas cruciales para el futuro de nuestros países: Democracia y partidos políticos; democracia y etnicidad; problemas de la transición democrática; democracia y violencia.
