Proc dure p nale
La procédure pénale est une matière fondamentale, dont la maîtrise est indispensable à la réussite des examens et concours d'accès aux carrières judiciaires (CRFPA, magistrature, police, administration judiciaire et pénitentiaire). C'est l'objectif de cet ouvrage qui, en 12 leçons suivant la chronologie du procès pénal, permet de mieux maîtriser la technique et de prendre la hauteur de vue nécessaire à la compréhension d'une matière complexe. L'ouvrage insiste sur les grandes problématiques actuelles de la procédure pénale. Une place particulière y est faite aux évolutions récentes de la matière, avec notamment ces derniers mois, la loi du 28 mars 2014 relative à la géolocalisation, la loi du 27 mai 2014 relative au droit à l'information dans le cadre des procédures pénales, la loi du 15 août 2014 qui consacre le concept de justice restaurative, ou bien encore la loi du 13 novembre 2014 renforçant les dispositions relatives à la lutte contre le terrorisme. Outre des exercices corrigés (cas pratique, commentaire d'arrêt, dissertation ou questions à réponse courte), chacune des leçons propose un point d'approfondissement de l'actualité, offrant au lecteur un "décryptage" des sujets contemporains. Compte tenu de son format et de son contenu, l'ouvrage se destine à tous les étudiants ayant à travailler la procédure pénale au cours de leur cursus universitaire. Plus généralement, il s'adresse à ceux qui souhaitent assimiler les règles essentielles de cette matière, tout en étant avertis des difficultés et des enjeux de celle-ci.
Promise at Dawn
A romantic, thrilling memoir that has become a French classic. Promise at Dawn by Romain Gary (1914-80), a classic of modern French literature, has all the earmarks of a richly romantic novel. It is all the more thrilling, therefore, to read it and know that this is not fiction but a real-life story. As a young child, Romain Gary’s mother told him that a day would come when he would have to challenge and conquer the evil demons of submission and defeat. After all, he was to be a French military hero, ambassador, noted writer, and ladies’ man . . . . Thus anticipating battle, by the time of his death he had won the Cross of the Liberation, the Croix de Guerre, the Legion of Honor, the Prix Goncourt (the last rather a comedown, as his mother had mentioned the Nobel Prize); and he had been the French consul-general in Los Angeles. Promise at Dawn begins as the story of a mother’s sacrifice. Alone and poor she fights fiercely to give her son the very best. Gary chronicles his childhood with her in Russia, Poland, and on the French Riveria. And he recounts his adventurous life as a young man fighting for France in World War II. But above all he tells the story of the love for his mother that was his very life, their secret and private planet, their wonderland "born out of a mother’s murmur into a child’s ear, a promise whispered at dawn of future triumphs and greatness, of justice and love."
A tribute to George Orwell's 1984 and a cry of protest against totalitarianism of all kinds, Sansal's 2084 tells the story of a near future in which religious extremists have established an oppressive caliphate where autonomus thought is forbidden. It is the year 2084. In the kingdom of Abistan—named after the prophet Abi, earthly messenger of the god Yolah—citizens submit to a single god, demonstrating their devotion by kneeling in prayer nine times a day. Autonomous thought has been banned, remembering is forbidden, and an omnipresent surveillance system instantly informs the authorities of every deviant act, thought, or idea. The kingdom is blessed and its citizens are happy, filled with a sense of purpose and piety. Those who are not—the heretics—are put to death by stoning or beheading in city squares. But Ati has met people who think differently; in ghettos and caves, hidden from the authorities, exist the last living heretics and free-thinkers of Abistan. Under their influence, Ati begins to doubt. He begins to think. Now, he will have to defend his thoughts with his life. "[In 2084] Sansal dared to go much further than I did," said Michel Houellebecq, the controversial novelist most recently of Submission. 2084 is a cry of freedom, a call to rebellion, a gripping satirical novel of ideas, and an indictment of the religious fundamentalism that, with its hypocrisy and closed-mindedness, threatens our modern democracies and the ideals on which they are founded.

The Year of Living Biblically
Avoiding shellfish was easy. The stoning of adulterers proved a little more difficult - and potentially controversial. Was it enough to walk up to an adulterer and gently touch them with a stone? Even that could be grounds for accusations of assault, especially with female adulterers in Manhattan. So what's a good Bible-reading boy to do? Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J. Jacobs decides to dive in head first and attempt to obey the hundreds of less-publicized rules. The resulting spiritual journey is at once funny and profound, reverent and irreverent, personal and universal, and will make you see history's most influential book with new eyes.
Alfred de Musset's 1832 play depicts Lorenzo de Medici, the 16th-century Florentine nobleman who killed his tyrannical cousin but did not establish a republican government afterwards and was forever disgraced by a debaucherous past. "Impressive. A sleek, stirring adaptation ... LORENZACCIO is a civic tragedy, charting the cruel decline of a formerly free city-state ... Recounted by ... playwright John Strand with clarity and directness, Musset's story of a society cowed by and despairing over its political leadership seems an apt one to tell just now. Its bitter conclusion is designed as a final dagger to the spirit ... LORENZACCIO speaks to our time, loud and clear." -Peter Marks, The Washington Post "Inherently dramatic, the stakes being so high and the game so dangerous. [Yet] humor still finds its way to the surface through Strand's script ... LORENZACCIO may be a play for our time in the way that it was in 1833. But whether we choose to see it in a modern light, the play is a masterpiece for all times." -Margaret Lawrence, The Star-Exponent "The play connects electrically and viscerally to our times ... Splendid, powerful and affecting ... Strand hits just the right mark in this almost grand guignol tale of power, politics, murder, courage and betrayal in Renaissance Italy." -Gary Tischler, The Georgetowner "If only George W Bush could have seen the gripping 19th-century French drama LORENZACCIO before being sworn in as commander-in-chief. Musset's play centers on the assassination of a tyrant. There's an occupying army detested by its citizenry. And there's the utter lack of a day-after plan once the repressive regime has been toppled, plunging the country into chaos. Sound familiar?" -Mary Carole McCauley, The Baltimore Sun "French playwright Alfred de Musset's LORENZACCIO has long been a fixture in French theater but the 1833 play is seldom performed in the U S. One chief reason is the absence of an English translation that addresses its unwieldy structure. Consider the problem fixed in this nicely accessible version from playwright John Strand. A welcome addition to American theater of one of France's cultural pillars." -Paul Harris, Variety
