  • Découvrez l'histoire du cerveau pendant les 270 jours de la grossesse et les deux premières années de vie. Une période cruciale pour préparer la santé du futur enfant et son épanouissement. À condition d'avoir les bonnes informations.
    Contrairement à ce que l'on croit, l'autisme, les épilepsies infantiles et de nombreuses maladies neurologiques et psychiatriques sont générées par notre cerveau avant l'âge de deux ans. Le neurobiologiste Yehezkel Ben-Ari raconte l'influence de la mère sur la construction du cerveau de l'enfant, et donne des clefs pour détecter et donc mieux prévenir certains troubles.
    Il dévoile également l'importance du moment de l'accouchement, le rôle de « l'hormone de l'amour » et le pouvoir du lien d'attachement mère-enfant.
    L'occasion aussi de rentrer dans la tête d'un grand chercheur, guidé par le sens de l'engagement et un puissant esprit anticonformiste, essentiel pour innover en science.
    Grossesse, naissance et les deux premières années : une période clef pour préparer à la vie.

  • Lylian Kesteloot avait découvert les splendeurs du Congo en voguant enfant sur le steamer de son père, ce bateau à grandes roues et fond plat, pareil à ceux du Mississippi. Elle était sur le pont en haut, les Noirs en bas avec les marchandises. « Je ne savais pas que cette séparation portait un nom : la ségrégation... » Cette Belge aux origines ostendaises deviendra alors une spécialiste de la négritude et de sa littérature dans les années cinquante, époque où celle-ci n'intéressait personne.

  • Elle a été la première à avoir présenté une thèse de doctorat sur la littérature négro-africaine. Avant elle, Senghor avait publié son anthologie, préfacée par Sartre, sous le titre Orphée noir. Quand on demande au professeur Kesteloot pourquoi elle s'est intéressée aux écrivains africains et à la littérature orale de ce continent, elle n'a pas d'autre réponse que le silence de l'évidence. Dans cet ouvrage elle confie au professeur Ari Gounongbé son intime perception de Léopold Sédar Senghor, d'Aimé Césaire, Frantz Fanon, Cheikh Anta Diop et Amadou Hamapté Ba.

  • Ma terre promise a obtenu de nombreux prix aux États-Unis et une critique superbement élogieuse.
    Partisan de la paix et de la création d'un état palestinien, Ari Shavit nous offre, à travers l'histoire de sa famille et des principales étapes de la création d'Israël jusqu'à nos jours, le plus passionnant et contrasté des voyages. Des portraits - celui de son arrière grand-père qui se rendit en Terre Sainte en 1897, du premier fermier qui fit pousser des oranges à Jaffa, de l'homme qui transforma les ruines de Massada en symbole du sionisme, d'un Palestinien qui, en 1948, fut chassé de son foyer, des religieux fervents, des créateurs de société d'internet... - mettent en évidence la complexité et les contradictions de la condition israélienne. L'évocation d'un pays vibrant d'énergie qui a vécu et vit toujours au bord du gouffre.
    « Voici l'histoire épique qu'Israël méritait... superbement écrit... le meilleur livre sur le sujet. » The New Republic
    « À la fois beau et envoûtant, d'une grande rigueur morale, mais aussi dérangeant. » The Atlantic
    « L'un des livres les plus nuancés et provocateurs écrits sur Israël. » The Wall Street Journal

    EXTRAIT
    Assis sur le banc de cette échoppe, dans cette rue malsaine, Jean-Pierre Nagalingam raconta l'histoire de sa famille jadis riche qui tomba dans des abysses infâmes où trahison, abandon, mensonges et déchéance devinrent un marécage duquel Jean-Pierre Nagalingam et Chandramukhi essayaient de s'extirper. Elle l'écouta sans l'interrompre, abasourdie par tant de malheurs. Ses larmes silencieuses qui tombaient comme des gouttes de pluie sur son sari se transformèrent en un déluge lorsqu'il arriva au passage de ce fameux soir de Deewali. La fille ne pouvait plus contenir ses larmes lorsqu'il évoqua la découverte du daawani.
    - Arrête. Je n'en peux plus?! lui dit-elle entre deux sanglots. Son visage baigné par les larmes était meurtri par la tristesse. Elle agrippa ses mains et les garda dans les siennes. Jean-Pierre Nagalingam regarda l'horloge de l'échoppe de thé. Il était dix heures moins le quart?; le moment fatidique approchait. Le coeur soulagé, il fit ses adieux à la fille.

    À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR
    Ari Gautier nous amène à Pondichéry où il nous avait entraîné une première fois avec Carnet secret de Lakshmi. Ici, ses personnages réalistes vont côtoyer les grands qui ont modelé l'Inde.

  • Des blessures anciennes qui peinent à cicatriser, des espoirs qui bercent et des présents qui transpercent ceux que Pondichéry a enfantés. Nocturne Pondichéry est un recueil de nouvelles qui raconte des vies façonnées par des siècles de colonisation et une culture indienne complexe. Des histoires imaginaires ancrées dans la dure et multiple réalité de l'Inde.

  • Le 26 septembre 2002, le navire Le Joola coulait au large des côtes Gambiennes. Assurant la liaison entre Dakar et Ziguinchor, le navire gît encore dans les fonds marins avec 1863 voyageurs.

  • Par deux fois déjà, Corvis Rebaine a semé la destruction dans tout Imphallion, dans sa quête d''une société plus équitable. Cette fois, sa femme et ses enfants n''ont pu lui pardonner ses crimes. Retiré dans une cité lointaine où il vit sous un faux nom, Corvis fait même partie de l''une de ces Guildes qu''il déteste tant. Mais quelqu''un a revêtu son armure noire et se fait passer pour lui ! Pour laver son nom, protéger son pays et se réconcilier avec sa famille, Corvis devra-t-il une fois de plus redevenir la Terreur de l''est ?

  • Here is comprehensive overview of the tumultuous career of former Fox News president Roger Ailes and a must-read for anyone looking to understand his legacy and impact on news media.
    Based on the meticulous research of the news watchdog organization Media Matters for America, David Brock and Ari Rabin-Havt show how Fox News, under its president Roger Ailes, changed from a right-leaning news network into a partisan advocate for the Republican Party.
    The Fox Effect follows the career of Ailes from his early work as a television producer and media consultant for Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush. Consequently, when he was hired in 1996 as the president of Rupert Murdoch’s flagship conservative cable news network, Ailes had little journalism experience, but brought to the job the mindset of a political operative. As Brock and Rabin-Havt demonstrate through numerous examples, Ailes used his extraordinary power and influence to spread a partisan political agenda that is at odds with long-established, widely held standards of fairness and objectivity in news reporting.
    Featuring transcripts of leaked audio and memos from Fox News reporters and executives, The Fox Effect is a damning indictment of how the network’s news coverage and commentators have biased reporting, drummed up marginal stories, and even consciously manipulated established facts in their efforts to attack the Obama administration.

  • In his trademark suit of black armor and skull-like helm, armed with a demon-forged axe, Corvis Rebaine twice brought death and destruction to Imphallion--willingly slaughtering countless innocents in pursuit of a more just society. But that was the old Rebaine. Before he killed the mad warlord Audriss and banished the demon Khanda. Before he lost his wife and children, who could not forgive or forget his violent crimes.
    Now, in a distant city, under a false name, Rebaine is loathe to resurrect his bloody ways, even when the neighboring nation of Cephira invades his beloved Imphallion. But when an imposter takes up the legendary armor and axe, and sets about killing more ruthlessly than Rebaine ever did, the old warrior may have no choice. Pursued by an old nemesis, a mysterious sorcerer, and his own vengeful daughter, Rebaine moves to clear his name, save his country, and reclaim his family. To accomplish these tasks, will he once again have to become the “Terror of the East”?

  • They called him the Terror of the East. Hidden beneath a suit of enchanted black armor and wielding a demon-forged axe, Corvis Rebaine carved a bloody path through Imphallion, compelled by a desire to see the land governed with some degree of honesty. Yet just when victory was in his grasp, Rebaine faltered, then vanished, taking a single hostage--a young noblewoman named Tyannon--to guarantee his escape.
    Seventeen years later, Rebaine and Tyannon are married and raising their children. Rebaine has given up his dreams of conquest. Not even news of the upstart warlord Audriss can stir the retired warrior to action--until his daughter is assaulted by Audriss’s goons. Now, to rescue the country he once tried to conquer, Rebaine once more dons the armor of the Terror of the East. But does he dare reawaken the part of him that gloried in destruction? With the safety of his family at stake, can he dare not to?

  • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW AND THE ECONOMIST
    Winner of the Natan Book Award, the National Jewish Book Award, and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award
    An authoritative and deeply personal narrative history of the State of Israel, by one of the most influential journalists writing about the Middle East today
    Not since Thomas L. Friedman’s groundbreaking From Beirut to Jerusalem has a book captured the essence and the beating heart of the Middle East as keenly and dynamically as My Promised Land. Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures, Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis. Ari Shavit draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own family’s story, illuminating the pivotal moments of the Zionist century to tell a riveting narrative that is larger than the sum of its parts: both personal and national, both deeply human and of profound historical dimension.
    We meet Shavit’s great-grandfather, a British Zionist who in 1897 visited the Holy Land on a Thomas Cook tour and understood that it was the way of the future for his people; the idealist young farmer who bought land from his Arab neighbor in the 1920s to grow the Jaffa oranges that would create Palestine’s booming economy; the visionary youth group leader who, in the 1940s, transformed Masada from the neglected ruins of an extremist sect into a powerful symbol for Zionism; the Palestinian who as a young man in 1948 was driven with his family from his home during the expulsion from Lydda; the immigrant orphans of Europe’s Holocaust, who took on menial work and focused on raising their children to become the leaders of the new state; the pragmatic engineer who was instrumental in developing Israel’s nuclear program in the 1960s, in the only interview he ever gave; the zealous religious Zionists who started the settler movement in the 1970s; the dot-com entrepreneurs and young men and women behind Tel-Aviv’s booming club scene; and today’s architects of Israel’s foreign policy with Iran, whose nuclear threat looms ominously over the tiny country.
    As it examines the complexities and contradictions of the Israeli condition, My Promised Land asks difficult but important questions: Why did Israel come to be? How did it come to be? Can Israel survive? Culminating with an analysis of the issues and threats that Israel is currently facing, My Promised Land uses the defining events of the past to shed new light on the present. The result is a landmark portrait of a small, vibrant country living on the edge, whose identity and presence play a crucial role in today’s global political landscape.
    Praise for My Promised Land
    “This book will sweep you up in its narrative force and not let go of you until it is done. [Shavit’s] accomplishment is so unlikely, so total . . . that it makes you believe anything is possible, even, God help us, peace in the Middle East.”--Simon Schama, Financial Times
    “[A] must-read book.”--Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times
    “Important and powerful . . . the least tendentious book about Israel I have ever read.”--Leon Wieseltier, The New York Times Book Review
    “Spellbinding . . . Shavit’s prophetic voice carries lessons that all sides need to hear.”--The Economist
    “One of the most nuanced and challenging books written on Israel in years.”--The Wall Street Journal

  • The enthusiastic feedback received from readers of the international bestseller Schein's Common Sense Emergency Abdominal Surgery (now in its 3rd edition, translated to seven languages; Springer Verlag; ISBN 9783540748205) inspired the editors to do a similar book dedicated to surgical complications: practical, non-formal, internationally relevant (in all types of practice and levels of hospitals) - and definitely not politically correct: what is considered taboo by others is not taboo for us; here we discuss everything!

    As in the editors' previous book, the use of references is restricted to the absolute minimum, and citing figures and percentages is avoided as much as possible. The chapters in this book are the opinion of experts - each contributor has a vast personal knowledge and clinical experience in the field he is writing about.

    This book will help all surgeons (and their patients), avoid the misery of complications, and will provide advice on the management of those that are unavoidable. Complications and death are an integral component of surgery. Surgeons have to look death in the eyes, try to prevent it and vanquish it - this is what this book is all about.

    "Schein's books are always terrific reads, conveying pithy observations and practical advice and doing so with wit and scholarship. This latest is surely a must for every surgeon's bookshelf." Abraham Verghese MD, author of CUTTING FOR STONE

    In business and our personal lives, it often seems as if the only way to get more done is by putting in more time-'more hours at the office, more days running errands.

If this sounds like what you need, Ari Meisel-'TEDx speaker, efficiency consultant, and achievement architect-'has the program for you. In Less Doing, More Living, Meisel explores the fundamental principles of his 'Less Doing' philosophy, educating the reader on:
    Optimizing workflow with twenty-first-century apps and tools

    Creating an 'external brain' in the Cloud to do all of your 'lower' thinking-'like keeping track of appointments, meetings, and ideas

    How to use technology to live a paper-free life

    The three fundamentals of wellness-'fitness, sleep, and nutrition-'and technological approaches to improving these areas of life

    And so much more!

    This book will give readers new tools and techniques for streamlining their workload, being more efficient in their day-to-day activities, and making everything in life easier.

While Shins expects only to face the difficulty of making up with her friends, what she actually finds is far, far worse. Her nemesis, Lisette, has returned, and she is not alone. Lisette has made a dark pact with supernatural powers that have granted her abilities far greater than anything Widdershins and Olgun can match.
    Together, Widdershins and Olgun will face enemies on both sides of the law, for Lisette's schemes have given her power in both Davillon's government and its underworld. For even a slim chance, Shins must call on both old friends--some of whom haven't yet forgiven her--and new allies.
