A l'image de l'émission sur laquelle le livre s'appuie, ces Itinéraires asiatiques du Dessous des cartes se veulent à la fois pédagogiques et ludiques, informés et accessibles, fidèles à leur tradition de transmission des savoirs et curieux du monde. Le livre offre des savoirs essentiels sur l'Asie et ses puissances (démographie, économie, conflits, énergie) tout en transportant le lecteur sur des territoires moins connus du continent, des enjeux du château d'eau himalayen au Bhoutan, le pays du bonheur brut, inventeur d'un nouvel indicateur pour mesurer le bien-être des populations sans le réduire à la somme de leurs avoirs. Avec ses plus de 120 visuels (cartes et graphiques), cet atlas entend susciter la curiosité du lecteur en lui faisant découvrir l'Asie à travers sa géographie physique, l'importance de ses fleuves, de ses montagnes et de ses plaines sur la vie des populations ; en mobilisant les ressorts de l'histoire pour expliquer et comprendre les tensions du présent ; en se projetant, enfin, dans le futur, en suggérant la manière dont l'Asie est en train d'influencer et de transformer le monde. Utile à la préparation du programme d'histoire-géographie du bac par les visuels accessibles qu'il offre et les thématiques qu'il couvre, le livre servira également les étudiants dans leur révision du programme de relations internationales et monde contemporain (classe prépa, Sciences Po, histoire, concours administratifs) enfin, tous les curieux du monde qui souhaitent comprendre le basculement du monde, la place que l'Asie y tient et ses relations avec le reste du monde.

When you think of the future, what do you see? Who is with you? Where do you live? The future is inevitably a vast set of unknown possibilities which, in a time of considerable and relentless change, can seem extremely daunting. But our futures are not completely foreign to us. 2038: The World's Futures demonstrates through the examination of facts and figures, alongside striking graphic collages, what the future might hold for us and what, more poignantly, we can do to shape it. By considering what we know today, it is possible to uncover not only the possibilities, but the opportunities that lay ahead of us, and recognise that the future is being invented today.

When the Taliban was ousted as the ruling party of Afghanistan, the iconic images of newfound freedom were those of men shaving their beards and women removing their veils. In Women of Afghanistan, French journalist Isabelle Delloye goes beyond the images-and behind the veils-and collects the crucial and fascinating stories of Afghani women from the last quarter-century. Delloye began doing interviews while working as a teacher in Kabul shortly before the Soviet invasion of 1980. Upon returning to France, she felt compelled to offer a forum in which the voices of her interviewees could be heard. She compiled their words, along with her own memories and observations, into this book, and it has become regarded as a classic of French journalism. Since its first publication, Women of Afghanistan has been updated twice, and this edition features a large section written at the height of the Taliban's power as well as two short, moving pieces written just after September 11, 2001. "Women of Afghanistan "is an important work of social history, allowing previously silenced subjects to speak without judgment. More than that, it presents a personal glimpse into the highs and lows of daily life in a nation where threats of war, starvation and natural disaster coexist with deep family ties and love for the land. ""Women of Afghanistan" is a slowly woven tapestry, in which the subjects find their own natural place in -history . . . all of them are terribly alive on paper and between the lines-women and men, children and the elderly."-"LeNouvel Observateur" Isabelle Delloye lived and taught in Kabul from 1975 through 1978. Since then, she has lived in her native France, and is well-knownfor her multiple talents as a videographer, muralist, ceramics artist, editor, and publisher.

Dès le début du 20e siècle, le Japon est entré en compétition avec la Russie. Après la capitulation du Japon en 1945, l'armée russe occupa les "Territoires du Nord", quatre îles les plus au sud des Îles Kouriles, et en expulsa les habitants japonais. Aujourd'hui encore il y a conflit entre les deux pays au sujet de ces "Territoires du Nord" que chacun considère comme un territoire national. Comment le Japon va-t-il pouvoir se sortir de cette impasse et enfin signer un traité de paix avec la Russie ?

'As I studied the maps, one thing about them captured my imagination ... Across this blank space was written one challenging word, "Unexplored"' In 1937 two of the twentieth century's greatest explorers set off to explore an unknown area of the Himalaya, the breath-taking Shaksgam mountains. With a team of surveyors and Sherpas, Eric Shipton and H.W. Tilman located and mapped the land around K2, the second-highest mountain in the world. It was their greatest venture, and one that paved the way for all future mountaineering in that area of the Himalaya. For Shipton and Tilman, exploration was everything, with a summit a welcome bonus, and Blank on the Map is the book that best captures their spirit of adventure. With an observant eye and keen sense of humour, Shipton tells how the expedition entered the unknown Shaksgam mountains, crossing impenetrable gorges, huge rivers and endless snow fields. There's a very human element to in Shipton's dealings with his Sherpa friends, and with his Balti porters, some of whom were helpful, while some were less so. The expedition uncovers traces of ancient cultures and visits vibrant modern civilisations living during the last days of the British Empire. Only when all supplies are exhausted, their clothes in tatters and all equipment lost do the men finally return home. A mountain exploration classic.

"With a title derived literally from the explorations of the French in the Pacific and metaphorically from classroom encounters with another culture - both of which form important subsections to the volume - Explorations and Encounters in French actively seeks to unite those fields of enquiry sometimes seen as separate, namely, culture and language. The essays selected for inclusion in Explorations and Encounters in French bring together many of the current research strands in French Studies today, tapping into current pedagogical trends, analysing contemporary events in France, examining the Franco-Australian past, while reviewing teaching practice and the culture of teaching. Collectively, the essays reflect the common engagement with language, culture and society that characterizes the community of French teachers and scholars in Australia and abroad."--University of Adelaide Press webpage.

La géopolitique s'intéresse à la politique attachée au territoire et aux enjeux qui en découlent. Cet ouvrage traite des questions de la population, du gouvernement et de la souveraineté de l'Etat. Au carrefour de ces disciplines, la géopolitique s'intéresse aux frontières maritimes entre Etats côtiers et aux ressources naturelles du territoire. Ce sujet sensible exacerbe de nombreuses rivalités bien que la mondialisation puisse créer l'illusion du contraire.

Three decades after the conclusion of the civil war that brought the communist Pathet Lao to power, the leaders of the Lao People's Democratic Republic are still searching for a compelling and unifying national identity. As detailed in Postwar Laos—a rigorously researched, cogently argued, and pathbreaking book—Laotian nationalism is caught between the rhetoric of preservation and the desire for modernity. Using fine-grained analysis of substantial ethnographic and archival material, Vatthana Pholsena sheds light on the politics of identity, the geographies of memory, and the power of historical narrative in contemporary Laos.Pholsena pays particular attention to the country's ethnic minorities, who had been marginalized—politically, administratively, and symbolically—by the French colonial government, which ruled for fifty years, and by its Royal Lao successor. Many members of these minorities fought for the Lao People's Liberation Army in the country's civil war (1960–1975), though, and were thus exposed to the processes of modern politics. The first book to examine the impact of such forces on Laos's ethnic minorities and their perception of Laotian nationalism, Postwar Laos also refines established theories of nationalism. Pholsena addresses a weakness common to all: the tendency to deny agency to individuals, who may in fact interpret their relationship to, and place within, the nation in a variety of ways that change according to time and circumstance.Postwar Laos offers a new perspective on the history of Southeast Asia and, more broadly, on the formation of national identity that will be welcomed by historians, political scientists, sociologists, ethnographers, and cultural anthropologists alike.

A total and groundbreaking reassessment of the life of Adolf Eichmann—a superb work of scholarship that reveals his activities and notoriety among a global network of National Socialists following the collapse of the Third Reich and that permanently challenges Hannah Arendt’s notion of the “banality of evil.” Smuggled out of Europe after the collapse of Germany, Eichmann managed to live a peaceful and active exile in Argentina for years before his capture by the Mossad. Though once widely known by nicknames such as “Manager of the Holocaust,” in 1961 he was able to portray himself, from the defendant’s box in Jerusalem, as an overworked bureaucrat following orders—no more, he said, than “just a small cog in Adolf Hitler’s extermination machine.” How was this carefully crafted obfuscation possible? How did a central architect of the Final Solution manage to disappear? And what had he done with his time while in hiding? Bettina Stangneth, the first to comprehensively analyze more than 1,300 pages of Eichmann’s own recently discovered written notes— as well as seventy-three extensive audio reel recordings of a crowded Nazi salon held weekly during the 1950s in a popular district of Buenos Aires—draws a chilling portrait, not of a reclusive, taciturn war criminal on the run, but of a highly skilled social manipulator with an inexhaustible ability to reinvent himself, an unrepentant murderer eager for acolytes with whom to discuss past glories while vigorously planning future goals with other like-minded fugitives. A work that continues to garner immense international attention and acclaim, Eichmann Before Jerusalem maps out the astonishing links between innumerable past Nazis—from ace Luftwaffe pilots to SS henchmen—both in exile and in Germany, and reconstructs in detail the postwar life of one of the Holocaust’s principal organizers as no other book has done From the Hardcover edition.
