  • André Gerlier, 25 ans, enseigne le dessin à Courbelles, paisible sous-préfecture française du début des années 1950. Peintre à ses heures, il a fait le portrait de Flo, treize ans, la petite fille des restaurateurs chez lesquels il prend ses repas. Flo lui voue un amour passionné (qu'il ne soupçonne pas) et rêve de se marier avec lui. Mais voici qu'un scandale éclate qui met Courbelles en émoi : des écolières prétendent avoir été débauchées par de mystérieux automobilistes. Gerlier est mis en cause par une camarade de Flo... Ce roman, publié pour la première fois en 1955, se lit comme un polar et se veut aussi une étude sur l'éveil des petites filles aux choses de l'amour (certaines sont des sentimentales et se déclarent, d'autres ont des curiosités précoces et affabulent). Il valut à Brenner une chaleureuse lettre de Roger Martin du Gard : « Je vous ai lu attentivement, n'ai pas trouvé une bavure, pas une défaillance, pas une gaucherie et, à aucun moment, je n'ai pensé que telle scène était moins bonne que la précédente, que, là il y avait une improvisation contestable, que ce chapitre était moins réussi que celui-là ! D'un bout à l'autre, perfection soutenue ! ». Une évocation stylisée et taquine de la France profonde, en même temps qu'une fiction sur les tours et les détours de la pédophilie et le romanesque des petites filles en pleurs. Drôle de roman simenonien, sur un sujet très actuel... A lire à distance d'un demi-siècle.

  • Les recueils de poésies d'Henri Thomas se sont succédé parallèlement à son oeuvre de prosateur. On distingue, dans les poèmes comme dans les récits, un cycle vosgien, plusieurs cycles parisiens, un cycle corse, un cycle londonien, et ainsi de suite (un poème apparaît comme l'amorce d'un cycle américain). Le goût des voyages, de la mer et des îles, apparaît comme une constante. Thomas ne sera jamais un homme en place. Il aime trop bouger. Il a toujours éprouvé le besoin physique et moral de marcher : "Il n'est pas possible que la marche apporte à chaque pas des objets captivants, a-t-il écrit, du moins elle apporte le mouvement qui est la condition de leur apparition." Ses poésies sont comme des jalons le long d'une route aux détours imprévus. On y voit la grande image lyrique voisiner avec le détail familier, la fantaisie avec le drame, la tendresse avec la colère, l'humour avec la mélancolie. La tentation de la déraison est souvent proche, mais toujours des "paroles dorées" viennent donner aux aventures du poète "quelque ombre de sens". Jacques Brenner.

  • Provides expert, state-of-the-art insight into the current progress of viral and non-viral gene therapy
    Translational medicine has opened the gateway to the era of personalized or precision medicine. No longer a one-size-fits-all approach, the treatment of cancer is now based on an understanding of underlying biologic mechanisms and is increasingly being tailored to the molecular specificity of a tumor.
    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the pertinent molecular discoveries in the cancer field and explains how these are being used for gene-based cancer therapies. Designed as a volume in the Translational Oncology book series, Cancer Gene Therapy by Viral and Non-viral Vectors deals with the practice of gene-therapy, with reference to vectors for gene expression and gene transfer, as well as viral therapy. It covers the history and current and future applications of gene transfer in cancer, and provides expert insight on the progress of viral and non-viral gene therapy with regard to delivery system, vector design, potential therapeutic genes, and principles and regulations for cancer gene therapy.
    Presented in three parts, Cancer Gene Therapy by Viral and Non-viral Vectors covers:
    Delivery Systems
    o Translational Cancer Research: Gene Therapy by Viral and Non-viral Vectors
    o Retroviruses for Cancer Therapy
    o DNA Plasmids for Non-viral Gene Therapy of Cancer
    o Cancer Therapy with RNAi delivered by Non-viral Membrane/Core Nanoparticles

    o Remaining Obstacles to the Success of Cancer Gene Therapy Focusing on speeding the process in clinical cancer care by bringing therapies as quickly as possible from bench to bedside, Cancer Gene Therapy by Viral and Non-viral Vectors is an absolutely vital book for physicians, clinicians, researchers, and students involved in this area of medicine.

  • From 1942 to 1944, twelve thousand children passed through the Theresienstadt internment camp, near Prague, on their way to Auschwitz. Only a few hundred of them survived the war. In The Girls of Room 28, ten of these childrenyes'>#8212;mothers and grandmothers today in their seventiesyes'>#8212;tell us how they did it. The Jews deported to Theresienstadt from countries all over Europe were aware of the fate that awaited them, and they decided that it was the young people who had the best chance to survive. Keeping these adolescents alive, keeping them whole in body, mind, and spirit, became the priority. They were housed separately, in dormitorylike barracks, where they had a greater chance of staying healthy and better access to food, and where counselors (young men and women who had been teachers and youth workers) created a disciplined environment despite the surrounding horrors. The counselors also made available to the young people the talents of an amazing array of worldclass artists, musicians, and playwrightsyes'>#8211;European Jews who were also on their way to Auschwitz. Under their instruction, the children produced art, poetry, and music, and they performed in theatrical productions, most notably Brundibar, the legendary yes'>#8220;childrenyes'>#8217;s operayes'>#8221; that celebrates the triumph of good over evil. In the mid1990s, German journalist Hannelore Brenner met ten of these child survivorsyes'>#8212;wmen in their lateseventies today, who reunite every year at a resort in the Czech Republic. Weaving her interviews with the women together with excerpts from diaries that were kept secretly during the war and samples of the art, music, and poetry created at Theresienstadt, Brenner gives us an unprecedented picture of daily life there, and of the extraordinary strength, sacrifice, and indomitable will that combinedyes'>#8212;in the girls and in their caretakersyes'>#8212;to make survival possible.From the Hardcover edition.

  • Now available in a new edition entitled GLASS HOUSES: Privacy, Secrecy, and Cyber Insecurity in a Transparent World.
    A former top-level National Security Agency insider goes behind the headlines to explore America's next great battleground: digital security. An urgent wake-up call that identifies our foes; unveils their methods; and charts the dire consequences for government, business, and individuals.
    Shortly after 9/11, Joel Brenner entered the inner sanctum of American espionage, first as the inspector general of the National Security Agency, then as the head of counterintelligence for the director of national intelligence. He saw at close range the battleground on which our adversaries are now attacking us-cyberspace. We are at the mercy of a new generation of spies who operate remotely from China, the Middle East, Russia, even France, among many other places. These operatives have already shown their ability to penetrate our power plants, steal our latest submarine technology, rob our banks, and invade the Pentagon's secret communications systems.
    Incidents like the WikiLeaks posting of secret U.S. State Department cables hint at the urgency of this problem, but they hardly reveal its extent or its danger. Our government and corporations are a "glass house," all but transparent to our adversaries. Counterfeit computer chips have found their way into our fighter aircraft; the Chinese stole a new radar system that the navy spent billions to develop; our own soldiers used intentionally corrupted thumb drives to download classified intel from laptops in Iraq. And much more.
    Dispatches from the corporate world are just as dire. In 2008, hackers lifted customer files from the Royal Bank of Scotland and used them to withdraw $9 million in half an hour from ATMs in the United States, Britain, and Canada. If that was a traditional heist, it would be counted as one of the largest in history. Worldwide, corporations lose on average $5 million worth of intellectual property apiece annually, and big companies lose many times that.
    The structure and culture of the Internet favor spies over governments and corporations, and hackers over privacy, and we've done little to alter that balance. Brenner draws on his extraordinary background to show how to right this imbalance and bring to cyberspace the freedom, accountability, and security we expect elsewhere in our lives.
    In America the Vulnerable, Brenner offers a chilling and revelatory appraisal of the new faces of war and espionage-virtual battles with dangerous implications for government, business, and all of us.

  • Many years after the United States initiated a military response to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, the nation continues to prosecute what it considers an armed conflict against transnational terrorist groups. Understanding how the law of armed conflict applies to and regulates military operations executed within the scope of this armed conflict against transnational non-state terrorist groups is as important today as it was in September 2001.
    In The War on Terror and the Laws of War seven legal scholars, each with experience as military officers, focus on how to strike an effective balance between the necessity of using armed violence to subdue a threat to the nation with the humanitarian interest of mitigating the suffering inevitably associated with that use. Each chapter addresses a specific operational issue, including the national right of self-defense, military targeting and the use of drones, detention, interrogation, trial by military commission of captured terrorist operatives, and the impact of battlefield perspectives on counter-terror military operations, while illustrating how the law of armed conflict influences resolution of that issue. This Second Edition carries on the critical mission of continuing the ongoing dialogue about the law from an unabashedly military perspective, bringing practical wisdom to the contentious topic of applying international law to the battlefield.

  • As new technologies develop, terrorist groups are developing new methods of attack by using the Internet, and by using cyberspace as a battlefield, it has become increasingly difficult to discover the identity of attackers and bring them to justice. The seemingly limitless boundaries of cyberspace has allowed virtually anyone to launch an attack from a remote and anonymous location. But once these attacks occur, it raises several important questions; who should respond, and how?; how should nation-states effectively deal with a cyber-attack?; and will the United States and other nation-states be able to survive in a world where virtual boundaries are limitless?
    In Cyberthreats: The Emerging Fault Lines of the Nation State Susan Brenner gives a thorough explanation of how military and law enforcement personnel respond to these attacks and why bringing cyber-terrorist to justice can be difficult and sometimes impossible.

  • The discovery of long-buried secrets brings three generations of women together to Cape Cod for the summer homecoming of a lifetime. Marin Bishop has always played by the rules, and it's paid off: on the cusp of thirty she has a handsome fiancé, a prestigious Manhattan legal career, and her father's hard-won admiration. But with one careless mistake at work, Marin suddenly finds herself unemployed and alone. Before she can summon the courage to tell her parents, a young woman appears, claiming to be Marin's half-sister. Seeking answers, Marin agrees to join her on a soul-searching journey to Cape Cod, to meet the family she didn't even know she had. As the summer unfolds at her grandmother's beachside B&B, it becomes clear that her half-sister's existence is just the first in a series of truths that will shake Marin's beliefs--in love, and in her own identity--to the core. Filled with shocking revelations, heartfelt romance, and resilient women banding together against the most unexpected twists of fate, THE FOREVER SUMMER is an emotionally resonant page-turner, and a delicious escape for any season.

  • When a young widow's reclusive life in a charming beach town is interrupted by a surprise visitor, she is forced to reckon with dark secrets about her family, her late husband, and the past she tried to leave behind.
    Lauren Adelman and her high school sweetheart, Rory Kincaid, are a golden couple. They marry just out of college as Rory, a star hockey player, earns a spot in the NHL. Their future could not look brighter when Rory shocks everyone-Lauren most of all-by enlisting in the U.S. Army. When Rory dies in combat, Lauren is left devastated, alone, and under unbearable public scrutiny.
    Seeking peace and solitude, Lauren retreats to her family's old beach house on the Jersey Shore. But this summer she's forced to share the house with her overbearing mother and competitive sister. Worse, a stranger making a documentary about Rory tracks her down and persuades her to give him just an hour of her time.
    One hour with filmmaker Matt Brio turns into a summer of revelations, surprises, and upheaval. As the days grow shorter and her grief changes shape, Lauren begins to understand the past-and to welcome the future.
