Le quinquennat hollandais a glissé dans le sang. Avec une tache rouge vif indélébile. Les attentats contre Charlie, l'Hyper Cacher de Vincennes, et la tuerie du Bataclan annoncent le début d'une guerre civile française, voire européenne, et le grand défi lancé par l'Islam à la civilisation européenne sur sa propre terre d'élection. Ce retour du tragique tranche avec la débonnaireté présidentielle qui confine à la vacuité. Comme si l'Histoire avait attendu, ironique, que s'installât à l'Elysée le président le plus médiocre de la Ve République, pour faire son retour en force. Comme si le destin funeste de notre pays devait une nouvelle fois donner corps à la célèbre formule du général de Gaulle après sa visite au pauvre président Lebrun, égaré dans la débâcle de 1940 : « Au fond, comme chef de l'Etat, deux choses lui avaient manqué : qu'il fut un chef et qu'il y eut un Etat ». Comme si la dégringolade n'avait pas été suffisante, pas assez humiliante, de Pompidou à Sarkozy. Ce dernier avait été élu président pour devenir premier ministre; son successeur serait élu président pour devenir ministre du budget. Un quinquennat pour rien.

The Multiple States of the Being is the companion to, and the completion of, The Symbolism of the Cross, which, together with Man and His Becoming according to the Vedanta, constitute Reni Guinon's great trilogy of pure metaphysics. In this work, Guinon offers a masterful explication of the metaphysical order and its multiple manifestations-of the divine hierarchies and what has been called the Great Chain of Being-and in so doing demonstrates how jqana, intellective or intrinsic knowledge of what is, and of That which is Beyond what is, is a Way of Liberation. Guinon the metaphysical social critic, master of arcane symbolism, comparative religionist, researcher of ancient mysteries and secret histories, summoner to spiritual renewal, herald of the end days, disappears here. Reality remains.

A definitive cultural history of high finance from one of the industry's most astute analysts Written by internationally respected financial expert Satyajit Das, Extreme Money shows how real engineering was replaced by financial engineering in the twentieth century, enabling vast fortunes to be made not from goods produced or services performed, but from supplying and trading money. Extreme Money focuses on this eviscerated reality—the monetary shadow of real things—and what it means today. The high levels of economic growth and the wealth that inevitably follows, driven by cheap debt, financial engineering, and speculation, were never sustainable, and the last few years have borne this out. The book shows how policy makers and regulators unknowingly underwrote the risks, substantially reducing their ability to control economic outcomes. Extreme money concentrated economic power, wealth, and risk in the hands of a small community of gifted, dynamic financiers largely outside the regulatory purview and the democratic process, and there's no going back. Explains the extreme money games (via private equity, securitization, derivatives, hedge funds, and other means) invented by the elite financiers of last century Raises deeper questions about the nature of the economic structure and assumptions about ongoing financially engineered prosperity that readers, politicians, and financial figures need to be asking The book is timed to coincide with the next phase of the financial crisis, as prospects of recovery diminish and the global economy becomes mired in a Western version of Japan's "Lost Decade" Ambitious in scope and coverage, the book is the indispensible, in-depth guide to the age of modern money. An age defined by extremes of financial behavior.

The breakdown of Valérie Trierweiler's relationship with French President François Hollande was spread mercilessly across the front pages. News of Hollande's infidelity first broke in January 2014, when Closer magazine published photographs allegedly proving a secret affair between him and actress Julie Gayet. Trierweiler learnt of the affair through the press, just like everyone else, and was subsequently hospitalised. As the world's media descended on the salacious details of the story and its damaging political implications, the embattled President vowed to see out his term in the face of rapidly sinking approval ratings. First published in France in September 2014, it promptly became the fastest-selling book in French history. Trierweiler's memoir proved incendiary, sending shockwaves through the establishment for its revelations about the President's politics and personal life. In a nation that strives not to pry into the private lives of its politicians, the book sparked intense debate about the role of 'the President's bedroom' in political life and public discourse. Thank You for This Moment is the unapologetic and unadulterated account of Trierweiler's years with the President. Told with shattering clarity, it displays a voice that refuses to be silenced for political expediency.

Scientists have learned more about the brain in the last decade than in all of previous history, and the implications of the latest research are clear: The human brain is far more powerful, and has the potential for immensely greater growth and transformation, than was ever before imagined. These discoveries may constitute the most significant development in learning since the invention of writing. Michael Hutchison captures all the drama, excitement, and adventure as we finally begin to comprehend the most mysterious and complex structure in the universe, the source of human culture, a still untapped reservoir of power and skills. He looks at the recently developed machines and devices that may soon allow us to increase brain size and intelligence; regenerate brain cells; trigger specific brain states such as euphoria, long- and short-term memory, sexual excitement, and creativity; and control the brain's electrical activity in order to alter such "involuntary" mechanisms as blood pressure, heart rate, and the secretion of hormones. Megabrain is a lucid and lively account of where the pioneers in brain research are headed -- and where they are taking us.
