    Voici un phénomène bien de notre temps, qui colore tous les aspects de notre vie : la recherche de l'authenticité. Mais qu'est-ce qu'être authentique ? L'authenticité serait-elle une mode ? Un produit ?

    L'auteur explore les divers versants de cette question, en passant par l'alimentation bio, l'écotourisme, le yoga, les vêtements vintage, le culte d'Oprah Winfrey ou d'Obama, tous extrêmement bien vus et très « tendance » dans notre société. Pourtant, il explique que cette quête de l'authenticité traduit un profond malaise où chacun s'isole dans l'idéal de sa petite personne, de plus en plus loin des relations vraies et d'une communauté solide et féconde.

    Cet essai, qui mélange habilement philosophie et culture populaire (2001, l'Odyssée de
    l'espace, le skateboarding, les jeans Levi's, etc.), se veut un appel provocant et souvent humoristique à faire preuve de plus de lucidité face à notre monde.

  • This book focuses on the  circumstances  that lead to the marked increased
    vulnerability of seniors and are most challenging to clinicians including the
    presence of multiple chronic medical conditions, variable losses of
    physiological function, and heterogeneity among individuals.  Written by
    the experts who lead the initiative to deliver high quality surgical and
    medical care to the elderly, Geriatrics
    for Specialists is the first book of its kind to provide the comprehensive knowledge
    specialists and associated generalists need to deliver quality health care to
    seniors.   With topics on important cross cutting issues like frailty,
    delirium and polypharmacy and specialty chapters on emergency medicine,
    anesthesia, many surgical and medical disciplines and  rehabilitation,  this book provides clinicians  the knowledge and tools needed to evaluate,
    treat and manage the unique needs of seniors.


    Geriatrics for Specialists was created as a resource for  specialist, generalists and allied health
    professionals and their students and trainees  who care for elderly patients.

  • This timely book brings readers up to date on the wide range of advances made in fisheries science since the publication in 1957 of On the Dynamics of Exploited Fish Populations (Beverton and Holt), regarded by many fisheries scientists as one of the most important books on fisheries yet published.
    Traditional fishery subjects covered include historic declines and changes in fishing fleets, fisheries management and stock assessments, data-poor situations, simulation and modelling of fished stocks, fisheries economics, assessing reproductive potential and dispersal of larvae, fisheries for sharks and rays, and use of marine technology. Additionally, related subjects of increasing importance now that ecological approaches to management are coming to the fore are presented. They include benthic ecology, ecosystem changes linked to fishing, life history theory, the effects of chemicals on fish reproduction, and use of sounds in the sea by marine life. Several chapters offer stimulating philosophical discussion of the many controversial areas still existing. This significant book, edited by Andy Payne, John Cotter and Ted Potter and containing contributions by world-renowned fisheries scientists, including many based at Cefas (where Beverton and Holt's original work was carried out) is an essential purchase for fisheries managers and scientists, fish biologists, marine scientists and ecologists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where fisheries and biological sciences are studied and taught are likely to need copies of this landmark publication.
