La prison vue de l int rieur
Rares sont les " travailleurs de la prison ", qui côtoient les détenus au quotidien, à prendre la parole. Directeur d'établissement pénitentiaire, surveillant, aumônier, médecin psychiatre ou formateur ont accepté d'exprimer leurs préoccupations, leur expérience professionnelle et humaine, nous offrant ainsi une approche concrète, sincère et multiple de l'univers carcéral.
In today’s image-saturated society, photograph and text live side-by-side, engaged in a complex collaboration. Andy Stafford critically examines this interplay in Photo-texts, taking nine case studies from the 1990s French-speaking world and looking at the interaction between non-fictional written texts (caption, essay, fragment, poem) and photographic images. The “photo-text,” as he defines it, is concerned as much with the oral as it is with visual and written culture. That text-image collaborations give space to the spoken, spectral traces of spoken human discourse suggests that the key element of the photo-text is its radical provisionality—that it is inherently unstable and ever-changing. This pathbreaking study offers a vital resource for scholars in contemporary French and francophone cultures.
La destitution des intellectuels et autres r flexions intempestives
Pour dire en quelques mots cette destitution : l’intellectuel était traditionnellement un auteur (romancier, poète, philosophe, savant, ou autres) que son œuvre dotait d’une autorité spirituelle susceptible de donner du poids à ses propos et à ses interventions comme citoyen dans la cité : interpellation du pouvoir, appel de celui-ci à la responsabilité, à la justice ou au droit, appel à l’opinion publique sur une question grave mais ignorée, etc. C’était un citoyen auquel son œuvre donnait une autorité, parfois considérable. Aujourd’hui l’intellectuel est devenu un histrion sans œuvre ni autorité, mais doté d’une place dans des réseaux de pouvoirs pour se maintenir dans la visibilité médiatique. Agis de telle sorte que tu continues à être visible ! Tel est son impératif catégorique, la loi qui commande ses faits et gestes. Comment ce changement s’est-il produit ? Cet essai tente de répondre à la question.

The Diary of a Country Priest
Recounts the life of a young French country priest who grows to understand his provincial parish while learning spiritual humility himself.
A gripping tale of human unrelieved horror, of survival and resilience, and of the ways in which humankind confronts death, The Plague is at once a masterfully crafted novel, eloquently understated and epic in scope, and a parable of ageless moral resonance, profoundly relevant to our times. In Oran, a coastal town in North Africa, the plague begins as a series of portents, unheeded by the people. It gradually becomes a omnipresent reality, obliterating all traces of the past and driving its victims to almost unearthly extremes of suffering, madness, and compassion.
The Book of Ivy
What would you kill for? After a brutal nuclear war, our country was decimated. A new nation of survivors lives within a fenced community. No one knows what lies beyond the fence; only that to be cast outside it is a fate worse than death. Two families fought to govern our new society. Now, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing faction to the sons of the winning side in a yearly ceremony. This year, it's my turn. My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill Bishop Lattimer, the president's son and my soon-to-be husband, and return the Westfall family to power. I never expected that my new husband would be the one person in the world to truly understand me. But I can't falter now - I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy. Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him... The Book of Ivy is the first novel in a thrilling dystopian duology from the author of The Roanoke Girls, perfect for fans of the Delirium series.
Punishment and Social Structure
Why are certain methods of punishment adopted or rejected in a given social situation? To what extent is the development of penal methods determined by basic social relations? The answers to these questions are complex, and go well beyond the thesis that institutionalized punishment is simply for the protection of society. While today's punishment of offenders often incorporates aspects of psychology, psychiatry, and sociology, at one time there was a more pronounced difference in criminal punishment based on class and economics. Punishment and Social Structure originated from an article written by Georg Rusche in 1933 entitled "Labor Market and Penal Sanction: Thoughts on the Sociology of Criminal Justice." Originally published in Germany by the Frankfurt Institute of Social Research, this article became the germ of a theory of criminology that laid the groundwork for all subsequent research in this area. Rusche and Kirchheimer look at crime from an historical perspective, and correlate methods of punishment with both temporal cultural values and economic conditions. The authors classify the history of crime into three primary eras: the early Middle Ages, in which penance and fines were the predominant modes of punishment; the later Middle Ages, in which harsh corporal punishment and capital punishment moved to the forefront; and the seventeenth century, in which the prison system was more fully developed. They also discuss more recent forms of penal practice, most notably under the constraints of a fascist state. The majority of the book was translated from German into English, and then reshaped by Rusche's co-author, Otto Kirchheimer, with whom Rusche actually had little discussion. While the main body of Punishment and Social Structure are Rusche's ideas, Kirchheimer was responsible for bringing the book more up-to-date to include the Nazi and fascist era. Punishment and Social Structure is a pioneering work that sets a paradigm for the study of crime and punishment.
