Stalin's forgotten Zion : Birobidzhan and the making of a Soviet Jewish homeland : an illustrated history, 1928-1996 by Robert Weinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'histoire de cet Etat juif dans l'Etat soviétique. Le gouvernement russe a créé une patrie nationale juive de culture laïque, enracinée dans le yiddish et les principes socialistes. Pourquoi cette volonté sur un territoire presque désert, aux confins de la Sibérie et à des milliers de kilomètres de Moscou? Après dix ans seulement, cet Etat artificiel périclite dû aux conditions d'existence extrêmement dures, et au durcissement stalinien face aux Juifs. Mais les tentatives de renaissance durèrent jusqu'en 1996, malgré l'éloignement des traditions juives, basées sur la religion et l'hébreu. Cette période de l'histoire juive et soviétique, pratiquement oubliée, nous est racontée sous forme de chroniques, avec témoignages et photographies inédits. [SDM]

The forsaken : from the Great Depression to the gulags : hope and betrayal in Stalin's Russia by Tim Tzouliadis( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the great movements of population to and from the United States, the least heralded is the migration, in the depths of the Depression of the nineteen-thirties, of thousands of men, women and children to Stalin's Russia. Where capitalism had failed them, Communism promised dignity for the working man, racial equality, and honest labour. What in fact awaited them was the most monstrous betrayal. In a remarkable piece of historical investigation that spans seven decades of political change, Tim Tzouliadis follows these thousands from Pittsburgh and Detroit and Los Angeles, as their numbers dwindle on their epic and terrible journey
Ocean of life : how our seas are changing by Callum Roberts( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Callum Roberts uses his lifetime's experience working with the oceans to show why they are the most mysterious places on earth, their depths still largely unexplored. In The Ocean of Life we get a panoramic tour beneath the seas: Why do currents circulate the way do? Where exactly do they go? How has the chemistry of the oceans changed? How polluted are we making them? Above all, Roberts reveals the richness of their life, and how it has altered over the centuries. The oceans are now under unprecedented threat. Not only does Roberts show how we are fishing our oceans to extinction, crucially, he explains how this directly affects our lives on land. Ninety-five percent of habitable space on earth lies in the oceans, and marine plants produce half the world's oxygen; the oceans themselves absorb vast quantities of carbon dioxide. The life they support is now in the balance. The Ocean of Life should galvanise debate worldwide. Roberts shows how we can arrest and reverse the damage we are doing."--Publisher

The age of turbulence : adventures in a new world by Alan Greenspan( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After 9/11, Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, knew, if he needed any further reinforcement, that we're living in a new world--the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-directing, and fast-changing than it was even 20 years ago. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. This book is Alan Greenspan's reckoning with the nature of this new world--how we got here, what we're living through, and what lies over the horizon, for good and for ill--channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure.--From publisher description

Le grand orchestre animal by Bernard L Krause( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "Les bruits du vent, de l'eau, des mouvements du sol, de la pluie exercent une influence troublante sur les sons émis par les animaux mais aussi sur le choeur qu'ils forment dans leur habitat. Tout organisme vivant sensible aux signaux acoustiques a dû s'adapter à cette géophonie, et se doter d'une fréquence permettant à son souffle, à ses claquements, sifflements, rugissements, chants ou autres vocalises de se détacher sur le fond sonore naturel. En témoignent les 4 500 heures d'enregistrements de Bernie Krause, qui ont immortalisé en un demi-siècle les sons de plus de 15 000 animaux, marins ou terrestres. Mais si l'imperceptible son des virus, l'étrange bruissement des anémones ou le couinement des épis de maïs ont la vie dure, près de 50 % des sons enregistrés depuis les années 1960 ont disparu de la surface de la Terre, chassés par la cacophonie des sociétés humaines. Le Grand Orchestre animal est un retour aux origines de cette musique naturelle, épurée, immémoriale, mère de toutes les voix animales, et un puissant manifeste en faveur d'une écologie des sons."
