Pluriel et commun
Sociologie d'un monde cosmopolite
Plural and shared
Sociology of a cosmopolitan world
Vincenzo Cicchelli
How is the individual socialized today, in Rome, Bombay, Lagos or Tokyo? Ours is a globalized world, a world in which a young person in Burkina Faso can identify with Star Wars heroes, a world in which a New York trader drinks the same Starbucks coffee as his counterpart in Taiwan. How is human experience shaped in a world such as this?



Les représentants du personnel
Staff Representatives
Thomas Breda
Drawing on very rich statistical data that has hitherto been neglected, this work establishes the first overview of the activity of staff representatives. It reveals that the legal framework within which they operate is ill-adapted to their activity, often pitting employee representatives, employees and employers against each other.



La sexuation du monde
Réflexions sur l'émancipation
The Sexuation of the World
Reflections on emancipation
Geneviève Fraisse
An original point of view  on a double controversy which arose during the French Revolution: resistance to the citizenship of women, and a refusal to recognize women as artists.



L'énergie éolienne en Europe
Conflits, démocratie, acceptabilité sociale
Wind Energy in Europe
Conflicts, democracy and social acceptability
François Bafoil
The institutional, financial and political innovations that result from the resolution of these conflicts reflect the vivacity of local democracy and the variability inherent in the notion of social acceptability. Comparing differents situations in Europe, the authors lay out a framework to help with decision-making. 



Les finances de l'ONU
ou la crise permanente
UN Finances
Or the permanent crisis
Morgan Larhant
This book combines history, international relations and public finances to provide an implicit portrayal of an institution in which money is as much a political subject as it is budgetary. It reveals the mysteries of a still-imperfect multilateralism and calls for reform of the financial and administrative governance of the UN.



Les socialistes français et l'économie (1944-1981)
Une histoire économique du politique
French Socialists and the Economy (1944–1981)
An economic history of politics
Mathieu Fulla
The criticism being levied is not new. In fact, though it first appeared after the 'defeat' of the "Front populaire", it has consistently returned since: French socialists are said to be economically incompetent. A stereotype? Mathieu Fulla offers an economic history of politics that participates in the current debate within the Left.



Manifeste pour une géographie environnementale
Géographie, écologie, politique
A Manifesto for Environmental Geography
Geography, ecology, politics
Denis Chartier, Estienne Rodary
This Manifesto for environmental geography illustrates a collective desire to go beyond individual practices in order to examine the epistemological and political role of geography when challenged by environmental crises.



Temps et politique
Les recompositions de l'identité
Time and Politics
Identity Reconfiguration
Anne Muxel
Including contributions from sociologists, political scientists, philosophers, historians and psychologists on the subject of our increasingly labile political identities, this volume highlights how politics are shaped by time, whether the collective time of generations, or, more personally speaking, the stages of life.



Le règne des entourages
Cabinets et conseillers de l'exécutif
The Reign of the Entourage
Executive Councillors and Advisors
Jean-Michel Eymeri-Douzans, Xavier Bioy, Stéphane Mouton
As erudite as it is enjoyable, this volume opens up new avenues for reflection, enriching the debate on the role and influence of the Prince's advisors.



Ni en emploi, ni en formation
Des jeunes laissés pour compte
Neither Employed, Nor in Training
The Youth Left Behind
Francis Kramarz, Martina Viarengo
Unemployment affects more young people with low education and skills. The solution to this problem is to improve educational provision. This book compares the performance of various education, training and prevention in several European countries - the Netherlands, Poland, France and Sweden - and the United States.
