• Quelle est cette série ? Nouv.

    Après le succès de "Quel est ce film ?", un nouvel ouvrage de Paul Rogers tout en images, cette fois-ci consacré aux séries. Un livre jeu dans lequel il s'agit, à partir de 6 indices par double page, de deviner les titres de 100 séries, nouvelle passion mondiale depuis quelques années.

  • Cinéphile passionné, Paul Rogers a concocté cent énigmes graphiques en six images, six détails tirés d'un film dont le lecteur doit retrouver le titre. Pour corser la difficulté, aucune star trop facilement identifiable n'apparaît jamais dans ces vignettes, ni aucune de ces scènes clés qu'on associe immédiatement à un film.
    Paul Rogers fait appel à la mémoire visuelle, s'attachant à des formes particulièrement frappantes, enseignes, affiches, éléments manuscrits ou architecturaux qui laissent souvent une forte empreinte inconsciente sur le spectateur. Du détail jaillit l'étincelle de la mémoire.
    Un double index (dans l'ordre des pages et alphabétique) permet soit d'aller directement à la solution, soit de jeter un oeil à l'ensemble des titres pour faciliter le jeu. La filmographie comporte des classiques américains et européens, beaucoup de films noirs, de films des années 1970, même si toute l'histoire du cinéma est balayée, du muet jusqu'aux années 2000.
    Ludique et esthétiquement très soigné, Quel est ce film? est un cadeau idéal pour tous les amateurs de cinéma !

  • Anglais The Toybreaker

    Paul Rogers

    Have you ever been blamed for something you didn't do? if so, you'll know how Jamie feels when he's accused of breaking other people's toys. But if it's not Jamie who's breaking them, who is it? Is it a child at all? Jamie is baffled. Throughout the town, toys are being broken - teddies' eyes are going missing, puppets' strings are tangled, and the finger of blame seems to point at Jamie. Then he meets Mr Pratchett, the toymender, who tells him the tale of the monstrous Toybreaker - a hideous creature fuelled by jealousy who roamed children's rooms before Christmas in times gone past, breaking anything, and everything which was loved. Could the Toybreaker be back? If he is to clear his name, Jamie has to find out

  • The enthusiastic feedback received from readers of the international bestseller Schein's Common Sense Emergency Abdominal Surgery (now in its 3rd edition, translated to seven languages; Springer Verlag; ISBN 9783540748205) inspired the editors to do a similar book dedicated to surgical complications: practical, non-formal, internationally relevant (in all types of practice and levels of hospitals) - and definitely not politically correct: what is considered taboo by others is not taboo for us; here we discuss everything!

    As in the editors' previous book, the use of references is restricted to the absolute minimum, and citing figures and percentages is avoided as much as possible. The chapters in this book are the opinion of experts - each contributor has a vast personal knowledge and clinical experience in the field he is writing about.

    This book will help all surgeons (and their patients), avoid the misery of complications, and will provide advice on the management of those that are unavoidable. Complications and death are an integral component of surgery. Surgeons have to look death in the eyes, try to prevent it and vanquish it - this is what this book is all about.

    "Schein's books are always terrific reads, conveying pithy observations and practical advice and doing so with wit and scholarship. This latest is surely a must for every surgeon's bookshelf." Abraham Verghese MD, author of CUTTING FOR STONE

  • This book brings together a collection of writings over the past half century from Professor Paul Rogers.   As a leading peace researcher he has gained an international reputation for the critical, independent and rigorous analysis of international security and the underlying causes of global conflict.   His work on the responses to 9/11 and the continuing failure of the war on terror, in particular, has shown prescience that has attracted widespread attention. Moreover, he has coupled his academic analysis with a determination to communicate widely beyond the university environment.  With many thousands of radio and television interviews, hundreds of public lectures and a world-wide following for his web publishing, this extramural engagement consistently seeks to raise the level of public debate on international security issues.
    -  Provides a radically different perspective on global security, based on 50 years of analysis-  Uniquely integrates economic, environmental and security analysis into a single overview
    -  Cogently demonstrates the urgent need to rethink our entire approach to global security

  • The war on terror is a lost cause. As the war heads towards its second decade, American security policy is in disarray - the Iraq War is a disaster, Afghanistan is deeply insecure and the al-Qaida movement remains as potent as ever with new generations of leaders coming to the fore. Well over 100,000 civilians have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, many tens of thousands have been detained without trial, and torture, prisoner abuse and rendition have sullied the reputation of the United States and its coalition partners. Why We're Losing the War on Terror examines the reasons for the failure, focusing on American political and military attitudes, the impact of 9/11, the fallacy of a New American Century, the role of oil and, above all, the consummate failure to go beyond a narrow western view of the world. More significantly, it argues that the disaster of the war may have a huge if unexpected bonus. Its very failure will make it possible to completely re-think western attitudes to global security, moving towards a sustainable policy that will be much more effective in addressing the real threats to global security - the widening socio-economic divide and climate change.

  • Is international terrorism really the single greatest threat to world security?Since the 9/11 attacks, many Western governments assume terrorism to be the greatest threat we face. In response, their dangerous policies attempt to maintain control and keep the status quo by using overwhelming military force. This important book shows why this approach has been such a failure, and how it distracts us from other, much greater, threats of climate change, competition over resources, marginalisation of the majority of the world and global militarisation.Unless urgent, coordinated action is taken in the next 5-10 years on all these issues it will be almost imossible to avoid the earth becoming a highly unstable place by the middle years of this century. Beyond Terror offers an alternative path for politicians, journalists and concerned citizens alike.

  • OCD is thought to affect up to one million people in the UK, and an estimated three million in the USA. Listed among the top 10 most debilitating illnesses by the World Health Organisation, OCD can have a devastating effect on work, social life and personal relationships. Professional treatment can be hard to access, and in addition many people are too ashamed of their problem to seek help. Coping with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder offers expert advice and a thorough self-help programme based on solid scientific evidence.

  • Please Enjoy Your Happiness is a beautifully written coming-of-age memoir based on the English author's summer-long love affair with a remarkable older Japanese woman. Whilst serving as a seaman at the age of nineteen, Paul Brinkley-Rogers met Kaji Yukiko, a sophisticated, highly intellectual Japanese woman, who was on the run from her vicious gangster boyfriend, a member of Japan's brutal crime syndicate the yakuza. Trying to create a perfect experience of purity, she took him under her wing, sharing their love of poetry, cinema and music and many an afternoon at the Mozart Café. Brinkley-Rogers, now in his seventies, re-reads Yukiko's letters and finally recognizes her as the love of his life, receiving at last the gifts she tried to bestow on him. Reaching across time and continents, Brinkley-Rogers shows us how to reclaim a lost love, inviting us all to celebrate those loves of our lives that never do end.

  • Emergency Abdominal Surgery is a battleground for the surgeon - providing character-building experiences, and opportunities for triumph and disaster. In the third  edition of this 'simple' book, emergency abdominal surgery is discussed in an informal and no nonsense fashion - as practiced in the 'trenches' of the ER and the OR. The preferred approach for a given situation is discussed in context; it has to fulfill certain prerequisites: save lives, decrease morbidity, be cost effective and be performed correctly.
