    Toi ou ton double... un seul pourra survivre
    Dans la ville fortifiée de Kersh, avant d'atteindre son vingtième anniversaire, chaque citoyen doit éliminer son Alter ego, un jumeau génétiquement identique, élevé dans une autre famille. Le compte à rebours se déclenche un beau matin, et chacun a trente petits jours pour affronter son autre moi.
    West Grayer est fin prête. Elle a quinze ans, et s'entraîne depuis des mois et des mois pour affronter son Alt. Survivre, c'est accéder à une vie normale, terminer ses études, avoir le droit de travailler, de se marier, de mettre au monde des enfants. Mais un grain de sable imprévu vient gripper la machine, et West se met à douter : est-elle vraiment la meilleure version d'elle-même, celle qui mérite un avenir ? Pour rester en vie, elle doit cesser de fuir... son double d'abord, mais aussi ce qu'elle ressent, et qui a le pouvoir de la détruire.
    Frénétique et imprévisible, le premier roman d'Elsie Chapman est un thriller qui vous prend à la gorge, une chevauchée infernale de la première à la dernière page.
    " Bourré de style, déchaîné et furieux... l'équivalent en roman d'un film de Quentin Tarantino. " (Publishers Weekly)

  • A chance encounter in a French town brings dark memories flooding back to fifty-five-year-old Kate. As a student at Sweet Briar College, Virginia in the 1950s, she joined a grand tour of Europe along with three classmates and their chaperone, Miss Grist. At the last minute, the mysterious and wealthy new girl, Olivia Hartfield, surprised them all by joining them.Revelling in the unparalleled freedom of the old world, Kate and her friends gradually form a privileged and sophisticated clique as, one by one, three intriguing but very different young men latch on to their party. But nobody is quite as they appear, and as facades crumble, this journey would prove eye-opening in ways the girls couldn't have possibly have imagined.On a remote outing a tragic and sinister event occurs.Now, thirty years later, the question is still open: what really happened that day?

  • In early 1970 a small plane, en route to Angkor Wat, mysteriously disappears over the Cambodian jungle. Piloted by an American hippie, the passengers are Bill Bolton, a US businessman, his wife Marjorie, their guide a young Englishwoman, and a Cambodian 'old hand', a Frenchman.
    Stranded helplessly in the jungle, the westerners are found by local peasants, and taken to the relative safety of their own veritable Shangri La. Here, cut off from the outside world, they find an enchanting Buddhist world, full of laughter and festivals; a gentle, sensitive people without greed, violence, or too much work.
    As the party adjust to the lotus-eating culture, life presents excitement,pleasure - even love. And an opportunity to bring modern methods to a backward way of life. But a darker, brutal presence threatens to destroy their paradise. The Vietnam war is spilling across Cambodia's borders, and an insurgency is on the rise that will become the Khmer Rouge. Cambodia must change, but in whose image?
    Gripping and beautifully written, A Model American is a multi-dimensional parable showing the American character abroad and its effects when used to 'improve' an ancient, alien culture. For many, it will greatly resonate with what is happening in the world today.

  • it appeared to me that the greatest and best feelings of the human heart were paralyzed by the relative positions of slave and owner'

    In Domestic Manners of the Americans, Frances Trollope recounts her travels through America between 1827 and 1830, describing her voyage up the Mississippi from New Orleans, a two-year stay in Cincinnati, and a subsequent tour of Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York. A transatlantic best-seller on publication in 1832, its forthright criticisms of American manners encompassed spitting, religious extremism, ladies' dress, the relentless pursuit of money, and the unequal
    treatment of women, slaves, and Native Americans. Witty, satiric, and hugely entertaining, Trollope also had a serious purpose in warning her compatriots of the consequences of democratic freedoms at a time of great social change in England. Deploring slavery and the hypocrisy that sanctioned it, she fuelled
    abolitionist debate on both sides of the Atlantic and so impressed Mark Twain that fifty years later he considered her book to be the most accurate portrait of American life in the nineteenth century.

    ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

  • Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory breaks new ground by redirecting the arguments of foundational texts within film theory to film sound tracks. Walker includes sustained analyses of particular films according to a range of theoretical approaches: psychoanalysis, feminism, genre studies, post-colonialism, and queer theory. The films come from disparate temporal and industrial contexts: from Classical Hollywood Gothic melodrama (Rebecca) to contemporary, critically-acclaimed science fiction (Gravity). Along with sound tracks from canonical American films including The Searchers and To Have and Have Not, Walker analyzes independent Australasian films: examples include Heavenly Creatures, a New Zealand film that uses music to empower its queer female protagonists; and Ten Canoes, the first Australian feature film with a script entirely in Aboriginal languages. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory thus not only calls new attention to the significance of sound tracks, but also focuses on the sonic power of characters representing those whose voices have all too often been drowned out. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory is both rigorous and accessible to all students and scholars with a grasp of cinematic and musical structures. Moreover, the book brings together film studies, musicology, history, politics, and culture and therefore resonates across the liberal arts.

  • Ouvrage conçu selon le même principe que celui de Miss Mc Kee sur les Diacres. C'est une étude attentive et comparative de l'exégèse des principaux textes-clefs utilisés par Calvin pour étayer sa conception des Anciens et de la pluralité des ministères. Miss Mc Kee relève les explications que les Pères ont données de ces passages, puis celles des théologiens du Moyen Age et de ceux de la Réforme. Dans cette longue histoire, Calvin apparaît souvent comme celui qui a donné un tour décisif à la compréhension du texte sacré, tout en établissant que l'Eglise, au sens du Nouveau testament, ne doit pas être gouvernée par des prélats, mais par des conseils de ministres et d'anciens.

  • L'auteur nous propose dans cet ouvrage une étude de l'enseignement de Calvin sur le diaconat (le diacre, dans les églises protestantes a pour mission de veiller au soin des pauvres et des malades). Elle dégage l'exégèse et l'historique de cet enseignement et montre dans quelle mesure celui-ci était suivi, en examinant la collecte dans les différentes églises protestantes de l'époque.

  • Cet ouvrage étudie la piété quotidienne, hebdomadaire et annuelle de l'Eglise de Genève, révélant un rythme liturgique qui doit beaucoup à la théologie de Calvin. Il traite des sermons, des sacrements, du mariage, de la piété domestique, du ministère auprès des malades et des mourants. Il met en lumière le développement du chant des psaumes, la liturgie du dimanche après-midi ; il décrit les transformations de l'année liturgique, le développement du jour de prière et le sens providentiel du temps mis en oeuvre. Il ne néglige pas les registres de baptême et de mariage pour montrer comment les actes ecclésiastiques étaient attachés aux sermons. La dimension théologique des pratiques cultuelles genevoises se double de questions d'organisation, telle que la rotation de pasteurs bien formés dans les différentes églises de la ville. C'est le grand mérite du livre d'Elsie McKee de cerner tous ces aspects avec une minutieuse attention.,
