En attendant les barbares : roman by J. M Coetzee ( Book )
4 editions published between 1982 and 2000 in French and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Parabole sur le pouvoir et la liberté, riche en scènes cauchemardesques: afin de prévenir les incursions des barbares (des nomades chasseurs) dans une oasis du désert, le pouvoir central organise des expéditions punitives. L'auteur a sans doute voulu anticiper sur l'évolution de la situation en Afrique du Sud (torture, représailles, désolation)
Les vestiges du jour by Kazuo Ishiguro ( Book )
14 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Par un écrivain "biologiquement japonais mais absolument britannique" (N. Zand), la confession - très digne - d'un fidèle majordome de grande maison anglaise. Selon le critique de ##The Observer##, le sujet du roman est la disparition d'une certaine Angleterre (au milieu des années 1950). Et pour N. Zand, l'auteur est très doué mais il devrait quitter le sarcasme et cesser de se cacher derrière les stéréotypes. Quant à Salman Rushdie, il affirme que l'auteur pose de grandes questions: qu'est-ce que la britannité? la grandeur? la dignité? Booker Prize 1989
When prophecy fails by Leon Festinger ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We have all experienced the futility of trying to change a strong conviction, especially if the convinced person has some investment in his belief. We are familiar with the variety of ingenious defenses with which people protect their convictions, managing to keep them unscathed through the most devastating attacks. But man's resourcefulness goes beyond simply protecting a belief. Suppose an individual believes something with his whole heart; suppose further that he has a commitment to this belief, that he has taken irrevocable actions because of it; finally, suppose that he is presented with evidence, unequivocal and undeniable evidence, that his belief is wrong: what will happen? The individual will frequently emerge, not only unshaken, but even more convinced of the truth of his beliefs than ever before. Indeed, he may even show a new fervor about convincing and converting other people to his view. How and why does such a response to contradictory evidence come about? This is the question on which this book focuses. We hope that, by the end of the volume, we will have provided an adequate answer to the question, an answer documented by data.
