L'intelligence émotionnelle : comment transformer ses émotions en intelligence by Daniel Goleman( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in French and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notre destin est-il inscrit dans notre Q.I.? Non, car la conception traditionnelle de l'intelligence néglige une part essentielle du comportement humain: les réactions émotionnelles. Maîtrise de soi, persévérance, motivation, respect d'autrui, sont autant de qualité qui permettent de réussir. Ce livre propose un passionnant voyage au pays des émotions, pour découvrir et exploiter en nous toute une palette de sentiments inexplorés

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 65 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]
An uncertain glory : India and its contradictions by Jean Drèze( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When India became independent in 1947 after two centuries of colonial rule, it immediately adopted a firmly democratic political system, with multiple parties, freedom of speech, and extensive political rights. Maintaining rapid as well as environmentally sustainable growth remains an important and achievable goal for India. Two of India's leading economists argue that the country's main problems lie in the lack of attention paid to the essential needs of the people, especially of the poor, and often of women. In the long run, even the feasibility of high economic growth is threatened by the underdevelopment of social and physical infrastructure and the neglect of human capabilities

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The universe in your hand : a journey through space, time and beyond by Christophe Galfard( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagine if The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy were a real handbook... Internationally renowned astrophysicist Christophe Galfard takes us on a wonder-filled journey through the past, present and future of the universe - a journey into science fact. The Universe in Your Hand is a popular science book that aims to explain Quantum Mechanics, General Relativity and String Theory using storytelling instead of graphs and equations. It transports us to the surface of our dying Sun, flies us to distant galaxies and puts us into the deathly grip of a Black Hole, and explains the mysteries of physics in language that will leave no reader behind. An instant classic that does for astrophysics what Sophie's World did for philosophy, this is a popular science book that will make readers understand, for the very first time, the mind-bending truths that underpin modern science; and along the way looks deep into questions about the existence of God, the beginning of time and the future of humanity
The ocean of life : the fate of man and the sea by Callum Roberts( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who can forget the sense of wonder with which they discovered the creatures of the deep? In this book the author, a conservation biologist leads readers on a tour of mankind's relationship to the sea, from the earliest traces of water on Earth to the oceans as we know them today. In the process, he looks at how the taming of the oceans has shaped human civilization and affected marine life. We have always been fish eaters, from the dawn of civilization, but in the last twenty years we have transformed the oceans beyond recognition. Putting our exploitation of the seas into historical context, the author offers a devastating account of the impact of modern fishing techniques, pollution, and climate change, and reveals what it would take to steer the right course while there is still time. The book takes a long view to tell a story in which each one of us has a role to play

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 28 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 26 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."

Flight of the falcon by Wilbur A Smith( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robyn Ballantyne’s journey takes her to the land of her birth. When she returns with her brother to the uncharted wilderness northeast of the Kalahari Desert, she is prepared for grand adventure, searching for her long-lost father, and bringing the word of God to the savage tribes along the way. Soon, however, this spirited young woman finds herself wandering in a quite different kind of wilderness, equally uncharted, when she observes the superb figure of a naked man bathing on the deck of the ship carrying her toward experiences she has hardly begun to imagine. Both brother and sister are obsessed with the Dark Continent--she for spiritual reasons (or so she had thought), he for wealth and fame. Their search and their separate obsessions lead them to a race into the beauties and terrors, the vanished Eden of the African interior. For Robyn it leads to one man, whom she loves but knows she must not, and to another, whom she cannot love but knows she must.--Adapted from dust jacket
What if? : serious scientific answers to absurd hypothetical questions by Randall Munroe( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the creator of the wildly popular xkcd, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask. Millions visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. Fans ask him a lot of strange questions. How fast can you hit a speed bump, driving, and live? When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British Empire? When will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than living? How many humans would a T Rex rampaging through New York need to eat a day? In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations and consults nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion

Science et réalité : la vision émergente by Ervin Laszlo( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur démontre que nos contemporains continuent d'adhérer à une vision du monde issue d'une science obsolète ; il tente d'exposer les dernières conceptions scientifiques dans tous les domaines fondamentaux de la réalité et s'efforce de montrer qu'elles sont loin d'être parfaites et restent fragmentaires
