Design for the Real World has been translated into twenty-three languages since it first appeared in 1971; it has become the world's most widely read book on design and is a required text in many design and architectural schools. This second edition offers a blueprint for survival in the third millennium. Victor Papanek's lively and instructive guide shows how design can reduce pollution, overcrowding, starvation, obsolescence and other modern ills. He leads us away from 'fetish objects for a wasteful society' towards a new age of morally and environmentally responsible design. Professor Papanek was a highly distinguished designer, educator, lecturer and writer, widely acknowledged for his visionary ideas on design theory. He was Professor at the School of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Kansas at the time of his death in 1998

L'intérêt premier de ce divertissement-avertissement, qui prend la forme d'un voyage du descendant, au moins spirituel, du chevalier avec un Sancho communiste, tient dans les dialogues où affleure une satire savoureuse des problèmes de ce temps.

In the drive the gravel was obscured by weeds: a tree had fallen right across the way, and though someone had lopped the branches for firewood, the trunk still lay there to prove that for many seasonsno car had driven up to the house. Every step was familiar to the bearded man who came cautiously round every bend like a stranger

The man who fell in love with the moon : a novel by Tom Spanbauer( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon is an American epic of the old West for our own times -- a novel huge in its imaginative scope and daring in its themes. The narrator is Shed, or Duivichi-un-Dua, a half-breed bisexual boy who makes his living at the Indian Head Hotel in the little turn-of-the-century town of Excellent, Idaho. The imperious Ida Richilieu is Shed's employer, the town's mayor and the mistress, and the mistress and owner of this outrageously pink whorehouse. Together with the beautiful prostitute Alma Hatch, and the philosophical, green-eyed, half-crazy cowboy Dellwood Barker, this collection of misfits and outcasts make up the core of Shed's eccentric family. And although laced with the ugliness and cruelty of the frontier West -- Shed is raped by the same man who then murders the woman he thinks is his mother, and the Mormon townspeople bring a fiery end to Ida's raucous way of life -- the love and acceptance that tie this family together provide the true heart of this novel. The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon is a beautifully told, mythic tale that is as well a profound meditation on sexualty, race and man's relationship to himself and the natural world
Our friends from Frolix 8 by Philip K Dick( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This satirical adventure from Philip K. Dick deals with issues of power, class, and politics, set in a world ruled by big-brained elites. In Our Friends from Frolix 8, the world is run by an elite few. And what determines whether one is part of the elite isn't wealth or privilege, but brains. As children, every citizen of Earth is tested; some are found to be super-smart New Men and some are Unusuals, with various psychic powers. The vast majority are Undermen, performing menial jobs in an overpopulated world. Nick Appleton is an Underman, content to go with the flow and eke out an existence as a tire regroover. But after his son is classified as an Underman, Appleton begins to question the hierarchy. Strengthening his resolve, and energizing the resistance movement, is news that the great resistance leader Thors Provoni is returning from a trip to the furthest reaches of space. And he's brought help: a giant, indestructible alien"--

"The parched terrain of Central Africa is the locale ... Dr. Mallory has come to the small town of Port-la-Nouvelle to run a WHO clinic, but the surges and countersurges of guerrilla and paramilitary activity in this forgotten and lawless zone have left him without patients.
