The rise of the network society by Manuel Castells( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in French and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le monde a vraiment changé, et nous sentons bien aujourd'hui que rien ne sera plus jamais comme avant. Bousculés par la globalisation de l'économie et l'ouverture des frontières, les fondements mêmes de nos sociétés vacillent : hiérarchies, institutions, idées, représentation de l'avenir, nous avons perdu nos repères et nos grilles d'interprétation ont pris un terrible coup de vieux. Que s'est-il donc passé ? Est-il possible de donner un sens à ce qui nous apparaît aujourd'hui comme un épouvantable chaos ? Sous l'effet d'une révolution technologique considérable (l'invention du microprocesseur et la diffusion de la micro-informatique), tout l'édifice de la société industrielle s'est trouvé mis à mal : l'économie bien sûr, mais aussi les conditions de travail, le rapport au temps, à l'histoire, à soi et à l'autre. Et c'est une société entièrement nouvelle qui est en train de se mettre en place sous nos yeux, la société en réseaux. -- Back cover

Oscar Wilde by Richard Ellmann( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in French and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this long-awaited biography, Wilde the legendary Victorian--brilliant writer and conversationalist, reckless flouter of social and sexual conventions--is brought to life. More astute and forbearing, yet more fallible than legend has allowed, Wilde is given here the dimensions of a modern hero. The author depicts Wilde's comet-like ascent on the Victorian scene and his equally dramatic sudden eclipse. He presents Wilde's Irish background, the actresses to whom he paid court, his unfortunate wife and lovers, his clothes, coiffures, and the decor of his rooms. The saga of his 1882 American tour is recounted with a wealth of new details; also his later impact on the bastions of the French literary establishment. The London of the Nineties, of Whistler and the Pre-Raphaelites, Lillie Langtry and the Prince of Wales, is evoked alongside Paris of the "belle époque" and the Greece, Italy and North Africa of Wilde's travels. This critical account of Wilde's entire oeuvre shows him as the proponent of a radical new aesthetic who was perilously at odds with Victorian society. After his period of success and daring, the fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas is followed by exposure, imprisonment, a few wretched years abroad and death in exile. The tragic end of Wilde's life leaves the reader with a sense of compassion and grief for the protagonist
Illiberal education : the politics of race and sex on campus by Dinesh D'Souza( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American universities are once again the scene of angry controversy. This time it is the politics of race and sex that has sparked a wave of bitter confrontations. Some of these disputes have made national headlines; many more go unreported. They may appear to be unrelated cases of excessive zeal. But as the author argues in this firsthand report from today's deeply troubled American campus, the conflicts are the fruit of a coherent ideology that seeks to thrust the university into the vanguard of social reform and to establish a model "multicultural community."

The life of Graham Greene by Norman Sherry( Book )

in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Vol. 3) In time for the centenary of Greene's birth (Oct. 4, 2004) Sherry's magnificent, much anticipated final installment of his biographic trilogy was published. Once again, Sherry diligently tracks down the actual inspirations for fictional characters and situations (as well as possible work by Greene for the British secret service) and judiciously discusses Greene's idiosyncratic Catholicism. Sherry himself enters the story in 1974, eventually becoming Greene's sanctioned biographer, and he comments throughout about his experience finishing this monumental work, such as his arguments with competing biographer Michael Sheldon
