Détails: Returning to the Norse-inspired realm of Baern eighteen years after Children of Wrath, this first book in the thrilling Renshai saga introduces three warriors brothers.... Continuing the saga begun in the Renshai trilogy and the Renshai Chronicles, this story follows three sons of Kevral Tainharsdatter: Saviar Ra-khirsson, Subikahn Taesson, and Calistin Ra-khirrsson. Bearn and her allies, including the Renshai, are faced with pirates, the vanguard of an army sent from a continent across the sea. Prejudice against the Renshai is growing rapidly, fueled by their ancient enemies in the Northlands. After a questionable battle, King Griff of Bearn is reluctantly forced to banish the Renshai from the Westlands. Shunned by Westerners and hunted by Northmen, the Renshai will face many trials, while Saviar, Subikahn, and Calistin must each take his own stand in a world where there are no longer any safe havens for their people. Yet not only the Renshai are in dire straits: without their aid, Bearn may well fall to the “pirate” army fast approaching its shores....

Détails: Cet ouvrage présente le système médical touareg, synthèse de données éparses provenant de nombreux écrits de missionnaires, de voyageurs, d'ethnologues, d'administrateurs et de médecins coloniaux qui ont évoqué des traits culturels relatifs au domaine médico-religieux. Pour la première fois, une étude d'anthropologie médicale présente et analyse les conceptions touarègues et leurs représentations de l'homme et du monde. Cette approche, novatrice, qui relève aussi de l'anthropologie culturelle, permet de comprendre l'importance et l'influence de traits culturels qui ont imprégné l'imaginaire occidental. Elle révèle une conception touarègue de la maladie et de son traitement. En médecine touarègue, le traitement est prescrit par différents acteurs dont les activités thérapeutiques, et les croyances qui les sous-tendent, oscillent entre le profane et le sacré. Cette diversité d'acteurs corrobore celle des médecines traditionnelles observées et remarquées occasionnellement par les voyageurs et les auteurs qui se sont intéressés de près aux Touaregs. L'ouvrage illustre une synthèse des médecines traditionnelles qui s'élabore sur la notion d'équilibre considérée ici comme clef de voûte de la structure ; équilibre dans le corps entre le chaud et le froid, et équilibre du corps dans le monde entre Dieu et génies. L'auteur situe ces médecines dans l'enjeu sanitaire que subissent les populations sahéliennes depuis plusieurs décennies. Lieu de conflits entre les politiques des Etats-nations, celles des organismes internationaux et les derniers défenseurs des médecines traditionnelles, cet enjeu est dominé par un mot clé, " conversion " : conversion en citoyens d'Etats, conversion culturelle, et conversion économique avec son cortège de déséquilibres dans le corps et dans le monde de façon irrémédiable.

Détails: One of the most beloved characters in all of comics, Tintin won an enormous international following. Translated into dozens of languages, Tintin's adventures have sold millions of copies, and Steven Spielberg is presently adapting the stories for the big screen. Yet, despite Tintin's enduring popularity, Americans know almost nothing about his gifted creator, Georges Remi--better known as Hergé. Offering a captivating portrait of a man who revolutionized the art of comics, this is the first full biography of Hergé available for an English-speaking audience. Born in Brussels in 1907, Hergé began his career as a cub reporter, a profession he gave to his teenaged, world-traveling hero. But whereas Tintin was "fully formed, clear-headed, and positive," Assouline notes, his inventor was "complex, contradictory, inscrutable." For all his huge success--achieved with almost no formal training--Hergé would say unassumingly of his art, "I was just happy drawing little guys, that's all." Granted unprecedented access to thousands of the cartoonist's unpublished letters, Assouline gets behind the genial public mask to take full measure of Hergé's life and art and the fascinating ways in which the two intertwine. Neither sugarcoating nor sensationalizing his subject, he meticulously probes such controversial issues as Hergé's support for Belgian imperialism in the Congo and his alleged collaboration with the Nazis. He also analyzes the underpinnings of Tintin--how the conception of the character as an asexual adventurer reflected Hergé's appreciation for the Boy Scouts organization as well as his Catholic mentor's anti-Soviet ideology--and relates the comic strip to Hergé's own place within the Belgian middle class. A profound influence on a generation of artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, the elusive figure of Hergé comes to life in this illuminating biography--a deeply nuanced account that unveils the man and his career as never before.

Détails: Like many indigenous groups that have endured centuries of subordination, the Berber/Amazigh peoples of North Africa are demanding linguistic and cultural recognition and the redressing of injustices. Indeed, the movement seeks nothing less than a refashioning of the identity of North African states, a rewriting of their history, and a fundamental change in the basis of collective life. In so doing, it poses a challenge to the existing political and sociocultural orders in Morocco and Algeria, while serving as an important counterpoint to the oppositionist Islamist current. This is the first book-length study to analyze the rise of the modern ethnocultural Berber/Amazigh movement in North Africa and the Berber diaspora. Bruce Maddy-Weitzman begins by tracing North African history from the perspective of its indigenous Berber inhabitants and their interactions with more powerful societies, from Hellenic and Roman times, through a millennium of Islam, to the era of Western colonialism. He then concentrates on the marginalization and eventual reemergence of the Berber question in independent Algeria and Morocco, against a background of the growing crisis of regime legitimacy in each country. His investigation illuminates many issues, including the fashioning of official national narratives and policies aimed at subordinating Berbers in an Arab nationalist and Islamic-centered universe; the emergence of a counter-movement promoting an expansive Berber "imagining" that emphasizes the rights of minority groups and indigenous peoples; and the international aspects of modern Berberism.
