"Au XVIIIe siècle vécut en France un homme qui compta parmi les personnages les plus géniaux et les plus horribles de son époque. Il s'appelait Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. Sa naissance, son enfance furent épouvantables et tout autre que lui n'aurait pas survécu. Mais Grenouille n'avait besoin que d'un minimum de nourriture et de vêtements, et son âme n'avait besoin de rien. Or ce monstre de Grenouille avait un don, ou plutôt un nez unique au monde, et il entendait bien devenir, même par les moyens les plus atroces, le Dieu tout-puissant de l'univers, car 'qui maîtrisait les odeurs maîtrisait le cœur des hommes' C'est son histoire, abominable... et drolatique, qui nous est racontée dans 'Le parfum', un best-seller mondial."

Mozart : portrait of a genius by Norbert Elias( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in French and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mozart is a brilliant study of the great composer's life and creative genius, written by one of the most important social thinkers of our time. In this haunting portrait, Elias examines the paradoxes of Mozart's short existence - his creativity and social marginality, his musical sophistication and personal crudeness, his breathtaking accomplishments and psychological despair. Using psychoanalytic insights, Elias examines Leopold Mozart's carefully honed ambitions for his son and protege. From the age of six Mozart traveled with his father, performing in the major courts throughout Europe, as the elder Mozart worked on his son "like a sculptor on his sculpture." This deep bond between father and son, which shackled as well as nurtured, provides the lietmotif of Mozart's early genius and the basis of his complicated psyche. As Elias shows, Mozart chafed at the constraints of Viennese courtly culture. Growing up in a society which viewed musicians as manual laborers producing entertainment for the court, Mozart fought for an independent livelihood. But it was not until the next generation - that of Beethoven - that the necessary conditions were created for such an existence. Vienna's aristocracy ultimately turned its back on the composer who, with mounting debts, no work and no prospect of fulfilling his innermost desires, died feeling that his life had become empty of meaning. Elias intriguingly ponders the notion of genius, seen as a complex marriage of fantasy, inspiration, and convention. Mozart was able to fuse brilliant musical innovation to an accessible artistic canon, producing wholly original, yet understandable creations. In exploring the tension between personal creativity and the tastes of an era, Mozart is a book of startling insight and discovery

La 4ème de couverture indique : "La contrebasse est l'instrument le plus gros, le plus puissant et le plus indispensable de l'orchestre, le plus beau aussi, dit d'abord le contrebassiste. Mais bientôt l'éloge pompeux laisse affleurer les frustrations et les rancoeurs du musicien et de l'homme. Et peu à peu la haine d'abord refoulée de cette encombrante compagne s'exprime, se déchaîne et explose jusqu'à la folie..."

Climate wars : why people will be killed in the twenty-first century by Harald Welzer( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Struggles over drinking water, new outbreaks of mass violence, ethnic cleansing, civil wars in the earth's poorest countries, endless flows of refugees: these are the new conflicts and forces shaping the world of the 21st century. They no longer hinge on ideological rivalries between great powers but rather on issues of class, religion, and resources. The genocides of the last century have taught us how quickly social problems can spill over into radical and deadly solutions. Rich countries are already developing strategies to garner resources and keep "climate refugees" at bay. In this major new book Harald Welzer shows how climate change and violence go hand in hand. Climate change has far-reaching consequences for the living conditions of peoples around the world: inhabitable spaces shrink, scarce resources become scarcer, injustices grow deeper, not only between North and South but also between generations, storing up material for new social tensions and giving rise to violent conflicts, civil wars, and massive refugee flows. Climate change poses major new challenges in terms of security, responsibility and justice, but as Welzer makes disturbingly clear, very little is being done to confront them

Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in French and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Métamorphose est le plus célèbre des textes de Kafka, et l'un des plus achevés. Description d'un combat, est, au contraire, un récit plusieurs fois remanié puis renié par Kafka, dont c'est le plus ancien texte connu, et le moins étudié par ses interprètes, que, manifestement il embarrasse. Le débutant y règle ses comptes avec l'esthétique et la psychologie alors en vigueur, dont il est en train de se dégager pour devenir lui-même. Autant La Métamorphose semble régie de bout en bout par une implacable logique, autant, Description d'un combat paraît fantaisiste, fantasque, presque farfelu, à la fois rêveries aux péripéties surprenantes et arbitraires et exercice de virtuosité d'une structure précise et savante. Cet écart et ce travail se marquent clairement dans la nouvelle traduction de ces deux nouvelles. On y mesure l'évolution par laquelle le talent de Kafka a atteint au génie
