Imparfaites démocraties
Frustrations populaires et vagues populistes
Imperfect democracies
frustrations of the people and the tide of populism
Yves Mény
Are we really on the eve of the collapse of democracy? In view of the economic and political changes underway in countries like Italy, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, the author argues that democracies will reinvent themselves.



L'Eglise catholique est-elle anticapitaliste ?
Is the Catholic Church anti-capitalist?
Jacques-Benoît Rauscher
There is a Catholic doctrine on capitalism, but it must be read between the lines of the pontifical texts. It could be summarized as follows: it is possible to operate within capitalist structures, but only to the extent that one does not adopt the behavior that capitalism presupposes. This is a position that requires a certain juggling act.



Le Biais comportementaliste
Behavioralist bias
Henri Bergeron, Patrick Castel, Sophie Dubuisson-Quellier, Jeanne Lazarus, Étienne Nouguez, Olivier Pilmis
A whole series of cognitive biases prevent us from making rational decisions: conformity, aversion to loss, excessive self-esteem, preference for the short-term, etc. This book is a critical analysis of behavioral knowledge and its applications, in order to understand its success and explore its limitations.

Une agro-histoire du monde
Land, power and conflict
An agrohistory of the world
Pierre Blanc
Because land possession remains a critical political objective, Pierre Blanc reviews contemporary history by placing the issue of land ownership at the heart of power relations. This book provides an agrohistory of the world in order to shed light on the geopolitical issues of the 21st century.



La Tyrannie du genre
The Tyranny of gender
Marie Duru-Bellat
Although the notion of gender was promoted by sociologists to shed light on relations of domination, invoking it at every opportunity – from the feminisation of language to political parity – establishes the idea that men and women are still, above all, and in every way prototypes of their sex group rather than unique individuals.



À quoi servent les politiques de mémoire ?
The future of memory policies
Sarah Gensburger, Sandrine Lefranc
To understand the reasons for the failure of memory policies and shed light on the public debate, this book return to the sources of these memory policies and, without political bias or taking sides, ask – where do these policies come from? What do they really do? How can we make them work effectively?
