Summary:

Je me suis dit que ce serait peut-être faire œuvre de bon citoyen que de restituer, dans la mesure de mes forces, à la France entière Bertrand de Born, à notre Midi une de ses plus belles gloires. C’est cette pensée qui m’a déterminé à écrire la vie du seigneur d’Hautefort... Car, n’en doutons pas, l’amour de son pays fut le seul mobile de ses actions, et à une époque où les barons ne connaissaient d’autre patrie que leur domaine, d’autre capitale que leur château, c’était la marque d’un grand coeur et d’un rare génie que de dévouer sa vie à toujours batailler, pour sauvegarder l’indépendance de sa chère Aquitaine, tantôt contre le roi de Paris, tantôt contre le roi de Londres. Voilà donc justifié dans le but, sinon dans les moyens, trop souvent en désaccord avec la morale, cet homme héroïque dont Dante n’a pas compris l’oeuvre patriotique, et qu’il a mis dans son Enfer comme la personnification de l’esprit de discorde et de rébellion. L’importance du sujet une fois démontrée, j’ai pensé qu’une pareille histoire serait incomplète, si à côté des actions du guerrier et des intrigues du politique ne se trouvaient pas exposées, en même temps, les œuvres du ponte. Aussi ai-je mêlé au récit, en les traduisant, les chants les plus remarquables de notre troubadour. Des deux formes générales de la pensée, les vers et la prose, j’ai cru devoir adopter de préférence la traduction en vers, non que j’aie espéré reproduire dignement les sublimes beautés de l’original... » (extrait de l’Introduction). Victor-Pierre Laurens, auteur du Tableau de la poésie française, membre de l’Institut historique de France, fit paraître son ouvrage en 1863, puis, dans une deuxième édition, en 1875.

Summary:

Born of War examines the human rights of children born of wartime rape and sexual exploitation in conflict zones worldwide. Detailing the multiple impacts of armed conflict on these children's survival, protection and membership rights, the case studies suggest that these children constitute a particularly vulnerable category in conflict zones. They often face risks such as discrimination, infanticide, loss of health care, education and other rights granted to the rest of the community's children.The contributors to this collection have the stated goal of using their research to advocate for greater representation of this group in international human rights law where their experiences have so far been ignored. A wide variety of case studies show that every community responds to these children in different ways. The exploration into why this is so reveals much that contemporary humanitarianism will find valuable.

Summary:

In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear—except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now... Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole. Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she's the only one who can bring him to justice. There's only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who's helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn's protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it's kill or be killed—and they, the predators, have just become the hunted... Born of Fire is the second book in bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's League series.

Summary:

The astonishing national bestseller and hugely entertaining story that completely changed the way we run. An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? Isolated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America’s best ultra-runners against the tribe. McDougall’s incredible story will not only engage your mind but inspire your body when you realize that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.
