Depicts life at the court of Louis XVI, circa 1780. The ever-fluid pecking order is determined by the quality and rapidity of one's rejoinders, and a man can be driven to suicide by the one thing that must be avoided at all costs - being the object of ridicule. Compassionate, upright engineer, Gregoire Ponceludon de Malavoy, is baron of an estate where peasants are dropping like flies, felled by diseases that breed in the fetid waters where they fish. Broke, but determined to drain the murderous swamps, Gregoire sets out from the provinces to plead his case at Versailles. But his mission is complicated when he finds himself locked in a dangerous triangle with two very seductive ladies - a sophisticated older woman who can help him and an innocent young beauty with nothing to offer but her love

La fin de la pauvreté ? by Philippe Diaz( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plus d'un milliard de personnes vivent avec moins de 1 dollar par jour et 2,7 milliards de personnes luttent pour survivre avec moins de 2 dollars par jour. Avec tant de richesses dans le monde, pourquoi y a-t-il encore tant de pauvreté? S'aventurant au-delà des réponses "populaires" sur les origines de la pauvreté, "La fin de la pauvreté?" se demande si ses véritables causes ne viennent pas d'une orchestration des pays riches pour exploiter les plus pauvres, de l'époque coloniale à aujourd'hui. Les peuples qui luttent contre la pauvreté répondent, condamnant le colonialisme et ses conséquences : appropriation des terres, exploitation des ressources naturelles, dette, néolibéralisme, demande permanente de croissance et mise en place d'un système économique dans lequel 25% de la population mondiale utilise 85% des richesses. Des favelas d'Amérique Latine aux bidonvilles d'Afrique, des économistes de renom, des personnalités politiques et des acteurs sociaux révèlent comment les pays développés pillent la planète; un saccage qui menace ses capacités à soutenir la vie et accroît toujours plus la pauvreté. Plus de 800 millions de personnes se couchent avec la faim tous les jours... dont 300 millions d'enfants. Toutes les 3 secondes, une personne meurt de faim, en majorité les enfants de moins de 5 ans (Chiffre des Nations Unies). "Aujourd'hui, si tout le monde vivait comme les Américains, il nous faudrait 6 planètes ; en 2050, il nous en faudrait 30" Serge LaTouche, Économiste
More than honey by Markus Imhoof( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Résumé figurant sur la jaquette : "Entre 50 et 90% des abeilles ont disparu depuis quinze ans. Cette épidémie, d'une violence et d'une ampleur phénoménale, est en train de se propager de ruche en ruche sur toute la planète. Partout, le même scénario : par milliards, les abeilles quittent leurs ruches pour ne plus y revenir. Aucun cadavre à proximité. Aucun prédateur visible. Arrivée sur Terre 60 millions d'années avant l'homme, l'Apis melifera (l'abeille à miel) est aussi indispensable à notre économie qu'à notre survie. Aujourd'hui, nous avons de quoi être préoccupés : 80% des espèces végétales ont besoin des abeilles pour être fécondées. Sans elles, pas de pollinisation, donc pratiquement plus de fruits, ni de légumes."
