  • Aborder le cinéma par l'angle de la bande dessinée permet d'en parler autrement. Et réciproquement, penser le neuvième art par le biais du septième ouvre de nouvelles perspectives, qui seraient certainement demeurées inexplorées si les deux formes, prises isolément, s'étaient ignorées. C'est autour de cette idée d'un dialogue que 24 images a composé ce numéro abondamment illustré. À lire, des entretiens avec Michel Rabagliati, Diane Obomsawin et des articles signés, entre autres, Jimmy Beaulieu, Ariane Dénommé et Zviane. Sont bien sûr analysées les adaptations des Hulk, Watchmen, Batman et plusieurs autres.

  • Sujet chaud, s'il-en est, c'est de laïcité dont il est question à la une du numéro du printemps de L'Inconvénient. En ouverture, Alain Roy met la table en distinguant d'abord laïcité et sécularisation, ou du moins effet sécularisant. Daniel D. Jacques fait une incursion au « royaume de la confusion », Yolande Geadah et Jacques Beauchemin s'entretiennent avec Georges Leroux, Guillaume Lamy discute de controverses identitaires, Joseph Rosen raconte sa vie entourée de voisins hassidim et Ugo Gilbert Tremblay offre ses considérations sur la laïcité, le droit et les moeurs. Ce numéro comprend aussi un photoreportage sur l'art de la boxe, le retour au réalisme où « une collectivité est abordée selon ses dynamiques d'intérêts et de pouvoir » dans des séries télé comme The Night of et Big Little Lies ainsi qu'un entretien avec David Dorais sur l'état de la critique littéraire au Québec.

  • In this riveting collection, published for the first time, we follow Harry S. Truman and Dean Acheson, two giants of the post-World War II period, as they move from an official relationship to one of candor, humor, and personal expression. Together they were primarily responsible for the Marshall Plan and NATO, among other world-shaping initiatives. And in these letters, spanning the years from when both were newly out of office until Acheson's death at the age of seventy-eight, we find them sharing the often surprising and always illuminating opinions, ideas, and feelings that the strictures of their offices had previously kept them from revealing.
    Adapting easily to their private lives, they nonetheless felt a powerful need to keep in touch as they viewed with dismay what they considered to be the Eisenhower administration's fumbling of foreign affairs, the impact of Joseph McCarthy, John Foster Dulles's foreign policy, and the threat of massive nuclear retaliation. Adlai Stevenson's poor campaign of 1956, Eisenhower's second-term mishaps, family events, speaking engagements, and Truman's difficulties writing his memoirs are all fodder for their conversations. In 1960 their skeptical stance toward John F. Kennedy (and his father's influence) turned them toward Lyndon Johnson. After Kennedy won they discussed Acheson's reluctant involvement in the Cuban missile crisis, his missions to de Gaulle and Prime Minister Macmillan, and the Allied position in Berlin.
    Unbuttoned, careless of language, unburdened by political ambition or vanity, Truman and Acheson show their own characters and loyalty to each other on every page. Truman, a Missouri farmer with the unpolished but sharp intellect of the largely self-educated man, clearly understands that in Acheson he has a friend with a rare gift for providing unhesitant and truthful counsel. Acheson, well-educated, urbane, and well-off, understands which traits in Truman's complex character to love and admire and when to admonish, instruct, and tease him. Both men share a deep and abiding patriotism, a quality that truly stands out in today's world.
    A remarkable book that brings to light the very human side of two of the most important statesmen of the twentieth century.

  • The benefits of altruism and empathy are obvious. These qualities are so highly regarded and embedded in both secular and religious societies that it seems almost heretical to suggest they can cause harm. Like most good things, however, altruism can be distorted or taken to an unhealthy extreme. Pathological Altruism presents a number of new, thought-provoking theses that explore a range of hurtful effects of altruism and empathy.
    Pathologies of empathy, for example, may trigger depression as well as the burnout seen in healthcare professionals. The selflessness of patients with eating abnormalities forms an important aspect of those disorders. Hyperempathy - an excess of concern for what others think and how they feel - helps explain popular but poorly defined concepts such as codependency. In fact, pathological altruism, in the form of an unhealthy focus on others to the detriment of one's own needs, may underpin some personality disorders.
    Pathologies of altruism and empathy not only underlie health issues, but also a disparate slew of humankind's most troubled features, including genocide, suicide bombing, self-righteous political partisanship, and ineffective philanthropic and social programs that ultimately worsen the situations they are meant to aid. Pathological Altruism is a groundbreaking new book - the first to explore the negative aspects of altruism and empathy, seemingly uniformly positive traits. The contributing authors provide a scientific, social, and cultural foundation for the subject of pathological altruism, creating a new field of inquiry. Each author's approach points to one disturbing truth: what we value so much, the altruistic good side of human nature, can also have a dark side that we ignore at our peril.

  • Dog Man T.1 Nouv.

    Les escrocs et les bandits n'ont qu'à bien se tenir. Dog Man arrive en France et en Belgique. Initialement publié en 2016 aux États-Unis, Dav Pilkey a déjà su séduire des millions de jeunes lecteurs avec son style minimaliste et les aventures drôles et décalées de ce chien policier. Dog Man, un peu comme Superman, serait né selon la légende, dans la cervelle de deux jeunes ados, Georges et Harold, qui bien des années plus tard décident de ressusciter leur héros mi-homme, mi-chien. Dog Man a ainsi été créé à la suite d'une intervention chirurgicale, en fusionnant, après un attentat, le corps d'un officier de police balaise et fan de kung-fu avec la tête de son chien chétif mais futé. Guidé par son flair et ses instincts, Dog Man deviendra-t-il le plus grand policier du monde ? Il est surtout le seul à pouvoir déjouer les stratagèmes de son ennemi juré, le chat roux et machiavélique Lepetit.
