Voici "un livre pionnier qui a bien su montrer toutes les facettes du mouvement des femmes tunisiennes et par là même des femmes arabes dans ce qu'il a de plus révolutionnaire pour la société, un rôle qui est apparu de manière encore plus évidente lors de la révolution tunisienne de 2011" (Georges Corm). L'auteure nous dévoile la vie intérieure déchirante d'une jeune femme libanaise au cours d'une année passée en Tunisie. Aux heures tragiques d'aujourd'hui, ce récit nous apprend que, du côté des femmes arabes, une révolution en sommeil attend toujours et encore son heure.

McCoy examines how Greek epic, tragedy, and philosophy offer important insights into the nature of human vulnerability, especially how Greek thought extols the recognition and proper acceptance of vulnerability. Beginning with the literary works of Homer and Sophocles, she also expands her analysis to the philosophical works of Plato and Aristotle.

Vous trouverez dans ce petit livre tout ce que vous avez toujours voulu savoir à propos des mots anglais, et même des mots français, grâce à la cohabitation heureuse et fructueuse des deux langues pendant au moins trois siècles. Vous apprendrez, entre autres, que les currants d'aujourd'hui étaient les raisins de Corinthe d'hier, que la même racine indo-européenne a donné les mots science, ski, et shit, et qu'au XVIe siècle le remords mordait réellement. Bien plus qu'un simple recueil d'anecdotes, Wondering about Words répond à de nombreuses questions souvent posées, telles que : pourquoi l'anglais possède-t-il souvent deux ou trois mots pour dire la même chose ? quelle est la différence entre say, speak et tell ? d'où viennent les faux amis ? Rédigé dans un anglais simple (les mots les moins courants sont traduits entre parenthèses), Wondering about Words vous donnera un nouveau regard sur la langue anglaise. Pour faciliter les recherches, deux index alphabétiques reprennent respectivement les mots anglais et français évoqués dans l'ouvrage.

In modern liberal democracies, rights-based judicial intervention in the policy choices of elected bodies has always been controversial. For some, such judicial intervention has trivialized and impoverished democratic politics. For others judges have contributed to a dynamic and healthy dialogue between the different spheres of the constitution, removed from pressures imposed on elected representatives to respond to popular sentiment. This book provides a critical evaluation of ongoing debates surrounding the judicial role in protecting fundamental human rights, focusing in particular on legislative/executive abridgment of a core freedom in western society – namely, liberty of expression. A range of types of expression are considered, including expression related to electoral processes, political expression in general and sexually explicit forms of expression.

Every day we face some kind of frustration: flat tires, flooded basements, wounding words, a broken body, a troubled marriage—trouble comes in all shapes and sizes and can happen when we least expect it. While everyone struggles, few people have learned to struggle well. But it’s not impossible! Frustrations arise when we look to people and things of this world to fill our desires, rather than to the only One who can really satisfy us. True North offers a unique, biblical paradigm that gives understanding and help to turn to God in the frustrations of life. Frustration often causes us to “go south” and react in the flesh. We grumble and grasp. God calls us to “go north” and respond to hardship with wisdom and redemptive love. Combining biblical insight with personal stories, practical help, and compelling examples, authors Gary and Lisa Heim encourage readers to turn from self-centered grumbling and grasping to Christ-centered gratitude and giving. As they read stories of hardships and trials, successes and profits, readers will see how frustrations can actually help them grow in their personal lives, in their marriages, in their parenting, and in their ministries. Believing that learning to live for God through all of life’s frustration is an intentional activity for every day, the Heims also provide discussion questions at the end of each chapter to help readers apply biblical truths to situations where frustrations loom. Perfect for use in ministry settings or as a handbook for personal growth, Truth North shows readers how to embark on the life-giving adventure of walking with God.
