Book Summary: Le recueil se compose de deux récits, qui partagent deux traits communs. L'un est une même technique de narration : un narrateur non identifié rapporte les dires d'un autres narrateur, on a un récit dans le récit. L'autre est que le narrateur identifié est le même : un vieux marin, nommé Charles Marlowe, qui est plus ou moins un double de Conrad lui-même. Dans le premier récit, Marlowe, jeune, vient de prendre son premier poste d'officier sur un cargo chargé de quelques centaines de tonnes de charbon à destination de Bangkok. Le navire connaît toutes les mésaventures possibles, voie d'eau, tempête épouvantable qui lui cause de graves avaries, et entraînent un retard de plusieurs mois de son départ. Enfin, après avoir appareillé pour de bon, on découvre au milieu de l'Océan Indien, que la cargaison a pris feu spontanément... Le deuxième récit, qui donne son titre au recueil, voit un Charles Marlowe, vieux commandant pratiquement à la retraite, s'ennuyer. Il accepte de commander un bateau de rivière, chargé de remonter un grand fleuve. Aucun nom n'est donné, mais il ne fait pas de doute qu'il s'agit du Congo, dans ce qui sera le Congo belge. Il est chargé d'aller chercher un personnage étrange, nommé Kurtz, qui commande un poste commercial qui lui sert à razzier de l'ivoire. D'autres européens sont passagers sur le bateau, dont le directeur local de l'entreprise. Tous reconnaissent à Kurtz un charisme hors du commun. Celui-ci, malade, doit être relevé mais refuse de l'accepter...

Book Summary: La Bible de l'éducation positive LES PARENTS ONT BESOIN D'UN MODE D'EMPLOI ADAPTÉ AUX ENFANTS D'AUJOURD'HUI Comment élever mon enfant ? Comment l'aider à être heureux, équilibré, respectueux des autres ? Que fautil faire, ne pas faire ? Y a-t-il une méthode efficace pour gérer les peurs, les colères ? Ces questions, tous les parents se les posent. Aujourd'hui, les découvertes sur le cerveau jettent une lumière nouvelle sur le comportement des enfants. Ce livre met à la portée des parents les éléments de base pour comprendre et agir. IL EST POSSIBLE D'AGIR POSITIVEMENT SUR LE CERVEAU DE L'ENFANT Le cerveau est notre organe le plus complexe : il comprend deux hémisphères, plusieurs aires – dont certaines sont dédiées au comportement moral, d'autres aux décisions ou à la motivation –, plusieurs " étages " – cerveau reptilien, limbique et cortex. La clé est de les intégrer dans un même circuit, comme les différents systèmes du corps humain. Quand tous ces éléments ne fonctionnent pas ensemble surviennent les problèmes : colères, caprices, agressivité. Par notre comportement en tant que parents, nous pouvons agir sur le bon fonctionnement du cerveau de l'enfant. UNE MERVEILLE DE PÉDAGOGIE ILLUSTRÉE Il mêle le savoir et la pratique. Chaque chapitre présente une connaissance sur le cerveau (les deux hémisphères, les deux étages du cerveau) et des techniques pour intégrer ce savoir au quotidien de l'enfant. Ces techniques sont systématiquement illustrées par : – Des scenettes sous formes de BD pour montrer des situations familières (opposition, troubles émotionnels) et expliquer au parents comment y répondre. – D'autres sont destinées à expliquer aux enfants le fonctionnement de leur cerveau.

Book Summary: Édition officielle de la Conférence des évêques de France "La joie de l'Évangile remplit le cœur et toute la vie de ceux qui rencontrent Jésus. Je désire m'adresser aux fidèles chrétiens, pour les inviter à une nouvelle étape évangélisatrice marquée par cette joie et indiquer des voies pour la marche de l'Église dans les prochaines années" : dès les premières lignes de l'exhortation apostolique Evangelii gaudium (la joie de l'Évangile), le pape François entend donner le ton à un texte auquel il reconnaît lui-même "une signification programmatique". Ce texte empli de tout l'élan missionnaire du pape François invite chaque chrétien à "entrer dans ce fleuve de joie" et à laisser cette joie déborder largement sur le monde.

Book Summary: Oliver SACKS décrit dans ce livre les affections les plus bizarres, celles qui atteignent un homme non seulement dans son corps, mais dans sa personnalité la plus intime et dans l'image qu'il a de lui-même. Il nous fait pénétrer dans un royaume fantastique, peuplé de créatures étranges : un marin qui, ayant perdu le sens de la continuité du temps, vit prisonnier d'un instant perpétuel ; une vieille dame qui caricature dans la rue les expressions des passants, jusqu'à les rendre grotesques et terribles ; un homme qui se prend pour un chien et renifle l'odeur du monde ; deux jumeaux arriérés mentaux, capables de calculs numériques prodigieux, qui vivent dans des paysages de chiffres ; ce musicien qui, ayant perdu la capacité de reconnaître les objets, prend pur un chapeau la tête de sa femme, et bien d'autres. Tentatives aussi pour poser les jalons d'une médecine nouvelle, plus complète, qui, traitant le corps, ne refuserait pas de s'occuper de l'esprit, et même de l'âme.

Book Summary: That he was a medieval king who, with a progressive bent of mind, dared to look ahead to find that common ground for all his people to stand together. That he was a medieval king who is today tempting us to look back into the past to see our future through his eyes. Ever since the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government came to power in 2014 with Narendra Modi as the prime minister, an organised campaign began to vilify Emperor Akbar and the Mughals. While there were always voices that tried to project the Mughals as just another 'Islamic empire', ignoring the civilisational impact they had on India, even for them Akbar was a shining light in an otherwise era of darkness. Those talking in terms of easy binaries always found a 'good Muslim' in Akbar and a 'bad Muslim' in Aurangzeb. Academics and other liberals who could have countered this incorrect portrayal did not do it, dismissing such claims as mere screeches by the fringe that do not deserve any attention. But with the Hindu Right assuming political power, the fringe today has become the mainstream. And Akbar is no longer the 'good Muslim'. Why is there such hatred for Akbar, once the most loved king in India? What was the journey like, from being great to not-so-great? And how is this India different from Akbar's Hindustan? Has he become irrelevant in an India where growing Hindu nationalism threatens to alter the nature of the Indian state from a secular republic to a theocracy? Or is Akbar even more relevant today given the backdrop of hate that we all find ourselves in? Allahu Akbar seeks to find answers to these questions while providing a profile sketch of the emperor, his empire and his times.

Book Summary: Land Conflicts Across Frontiers compares Myanmar’s journey with North East India on the critical and contested issue of land. It examines concerns related to land in pre-colonial and colonial history, causes and consequences of land conflicts today, the socioeconomic dynamics attached to land, along with attempted community-based institutional interventions and rural activism. As Myanmar takes its steps towards a democratic future, it becomes critical for the country to be aware of North East India’s experiences, as they could provide valuable lessons of what to ‘implement’ and what to ‘avoid’. Loss of common property resources, non-recognition of customary rights, ambiguous land laws and inadequate attention to people’s grievances have led to a rural landscape which has witnessed livelihood vulnerability, displacement and conflict. The book not only tries to capture cross-border experiences in order to have a better understanding of land alienation, agrarian discontent and peripheral marginalization but also notes recent trends in rural spaces and suggests policy measures.

Book Summary: This book offers a comprehensive argument for why pre-existing international law on cluster munitions was inadequate to deal with the full scope of humanitarian consequences associated with their use. The book undertakes an interdisciplinary legal analysis of restraints and prohibitions on the use of cluster munitions under international humanitarian law, human rights law, and international criminal law, as well as in relation to the recently adopted Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM). The book goes on to offer an in-depth substantive and procedural analysis of the negotiations which led to the 2008 CCM, in part based on the author’s experiences as an adviser to Cluster Munitions Coalition-Austria. Cluster Munitions and International Law is essential reading for practitioners and scholars of International Law, including International Humanitarian, Human Rights, International Criminal or Disarmament Law and anyone interested in legal and humanitarian perspectives on cluster munitions legislation and policy. It is unique in bringing a practitioner’s perspective to a scholarly work.
