Summary:

The evocative story of a man without a country, Arch of Triumph is a World War II–era classic from the author of All Quiet on the Western Front. It is 1939. Despite a law banning him from performing surgery, Ravic—a German doctor and refugee living in Paris—has been treating some of the city’s most elite citizens for two years on the behalf of two less-than-skillful French physicians. Forbidden to return to his own country, and dodging the everyday dangers of jail and deportation, Ravic manages to hang on—all the while searching for the Nazi who tortured him back in Germany. And though he’s given up on the possibility of love, life has a curious way of taking a turn for the romantic, even during the worst of times. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

Summary:

Paris, 1939. Ravic, chirurgien allemand émigré en France pour fuir le régime nazi, opère dans la clandestinité pour le compte d’un médecin français qui ne maîtrise plus son métier. Hanté par les sévices qu’il a subis en Allemagne, il déambule dans la capitale, à la veille de l’Occupation, risquant chaque jour d’être expulsé. Lorsqu’il rencontre Jeanne, jeune chanteuse exilée comme lui, il reprend un temps goût au bonheur, mais les ombres du passé ne lâchent pas prises si facilement. Arc de triomphe est le portrait d’un homme qui, derrière son cynisme, cache un profond humanisme, opérant sans distinction grandes dames et prostituées, petites gens et hauts fonctionnaires. C’est aussi un grand roman d’amour et, surtout, le tableau saisissant d’un monde sur le point de basculer dans l’obscurité. Traduit de l’allemand par Michel Hérubel.

Summary:

Ghana, 1956. Nous sommes à la veille de l’indépendance. Nathaniel Amegbe est professeur dans une école ghanéenne plutôt médiocre. Johnnie Kestoe est comptable dans une firme textile britannique à Accra. Les deux hommes s’affronteront autour de la question de l’« africanisation », cette politique de passation des responsabilités entre Britanniques et Ghanéens. De l’autre côté du Jourdain est le premier roman de Margaret Laurence, cette matriarche de la littérature. Cette traduction est une invitation à découvrir une facette méconnue de l’œuvre d’une grande écrivaine qui, pendant son séjour en Afrique de 1950 à 1956, a su capter tout l’espoir et les bouleversements imposés par les indépendances africaines à l’ordre du monde. Mais avant tout, il s’agit d’une invitation à découvrir une Afrique fébrile, des personnages attachants, le tout écrit avec un talent incontestable, dans une pluralité de voix à couper le souffle. Réflexion sur l’indépendance, tant intérieure que politique, De l’autre côté du Jourdain annonçait déjà les grands romans emblématiques de Laurence, dont, L’ange de pierre et Les devins.

Summary:

284 marches pour conquérir Paris ! À 50 mètres du sol, depuis l'Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, la capitale dévoile toute son histoire et la plus belle perspective du monde : un fil magique, tendu entre la Grande Arche de la Défense et le Louvre. Avec pour jalons les Champs-Élysées, l'obélisque de la Concorde, le jardin des Tuileries, l'arc de triomphe du Carrousel et la pyramide du Louvre. Implanté au centre de la place Charles-de-Gaulle, l'Arc de Triomphe est le plus illustre symbole de l'histoire de France. Cet arc prestigieux, commandé par Napoléon, célèbre tout à la fois la gloire des soldats français vainqueurs des armées austro-russes et affirme la légitimité de Napoléon tout en marquant son règne du sceau de l'architecture. Des groupes de sculptures - tels que Le Triomphe de Napoléon, Le Départ des volontaires, La Prise d'Alexandrie, La Bataille d'Austerlitz, Le Départ des armées, Le Retour des armées, etc. -, déployés notamment sur les piédroits, les arcs et l'entablement, sont autant de témoignages de la grandeur de l'Empereur et de la Nation. L'Arc fut le siège d'événements majeurs, comme le retour des cendres de l'Empereur en 1840, les obsèques nationales de Victor Hugo en 1885, le passage des armées victorieuses en 1919 et la libération de Paris en 1944 ; aujourd'hui encore, il est au centre des commémorations avec une cérémonie quotidienne au cours de laquelle la Flamme du souvenir, située sur la tombe du Soldat inconnu, est ravivée.

Summary:

In Targets of Deception, which suspense master Robert K. Tanenbaum called “a fast-paced thriller,” Jeffrey Stephens introduced CIA agent Jordan Sandor, whom bestselling author Steve Alten praised as “terrific.” Now Sandor is back, playing for bigger stakes and facing deadlier challenges. Whisked from his Manhattan town house to a gabled CIA safe house in Virginia, Sandor faces off with a top terrorist agent from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. In exchange for protection from his own side, Ahmad Jaber is offering the CIA explosive information: word of a secret, unholy alliance forged among operatives in the Middle East, a ruthless South American, and Kim Jong-Il’s North Korea. Jaber claims not to know specific details, only that the strike will target the heart of America. The fanatics stage a stunning diversion in the Caribbean, mercilessly downing a passenger jet and unleashing an assault on a French intelligence installation. Sandor, however, has already moved in a different direction. Leveraging Jaber’s infor-mation, he assembles a small strike force to penetrate North Korea. The team knows they will not all return, but the intel they gather will be vital to American security. What they ultimately discover plunges Sandor into a frantic race against time, struggling to defeat a shadowy figure—a master terrorist with a plan of destruction so perfectly disguised that even with the new knowledge he has gathered, Sandor cannot guess where or how he will strike. As a storm rages in the Gulf of Mexico, word comes that two submarines have penetrated U.S. waters. With the U.S. military hampered by the hurricane, Sandor turns to a few daring U.S. Navy SEALs to duel with the enemy they cannot see . . . for now they know only that there are two nuclear weapons aimed at a target of opportunity whose destruction would change the world order forever. Brilliantly conceived, electrifyingly paced, Targets of Opportunity captures a terrifying twenty-first century reality: terrorists can—and will—try as many times as they need to attack the United States. For the brave men and women who defend our country, failure is not an option.

Summary:

The premier source for journalists, now revised and updated for 2015. Does the White House tweet? Or does the White House post on Twitter? Can "text" be a verb and also a noun? When should you link? For anyone who writes--short stories or business plans, book reports or news articles--knotty choices of spelling, grammar, punctuation and meaning lurk in every line: Lay or lie? Who or whom? That or which? Is Band-Aid still a trademark? It's enough to send you in search of a Martini. (Or is that a martini?) Now everyone can find answers to these and thousands of other questions in the handy alphabetical guide used by the writers and editors of the world's most authoritative news organization. The guidelines to hyphenation, punctuation, capitalization and spelling are crisp and compact, created for instant reference in the rush of daily deadlines. The 2015 edition is a revised and condensed version of the classic guide, updated with solutions to problems that plague writers in the Internet age: · How to cite links and blogs · How to handle tweets, hashtags and other social-media content · How to use current terms like “transgender,” or to choose thoughtfully between "same-sex marriage" and "gay marriage" With wry wit, the authors have created an essential and entertaining reference tool.

Summary:

Blue jeans, MTV, Coca-Cola, and... ecology? We don't often think of conservation sciences as a U.S. export, but in the second half of the twentieth century an astounding array of scientists and ideas flowed out from the United States into the world, preaching the gospel of conservation-oriented ecology. Inventing Global Ecology grapples with how we should understand the development of global ecology in the twentieth century--a science that is held responsible for, literally, saving the world. Is the spread of ecology throughout the globe a subtle form of cultural imperialism, as some claim? Or is it a manifestation of an increasingly globalized world, where ideas, people, and things move about with greater freedom than ever before? Using India as the case study, Professor Michael Lewis considers the development of conservation policies and conservation sciences since the end of World War II and the role of United States scientists, ideas, and institutions in this process. Was India subject to a subtle form of Americanization, or did Indian ecologists develop their own agenda, their own science, and their own way of understanding (and saving) the natural world? Does nationality even matter when doing ecology? This readable narrative will carry you through the first fifty years of independent India, from the meadows of the Himalayan Mountains to the rainforests of southern India, from Gandhi and Nehru to Project Tiger. Of equal interest to the general reader, to scientists, and to scholars of history and globalization, Inventing Global Ecology combines ethnographic fieldwork and oral history conducted in India and the United States, as well as traditional archival research.
