"Justice Breyer discusses what the Court must do going forward to maintain that public confidence and argues for interpreting the Constitution in a way that works in practice. He forcefully rejects competing approaches that look exclusively to the Constitution's text or to the eighteenth-century views of the framers. Instead, he advocates a pragmatic approach that applies unchanging constitutional values to ever-changing circumstances -- an approach that will best demonstrate to the public that the Constitution continues to serve us well."--Jacket

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "A Edgecombe Saint Mary, une tasse de thé délicatement infusé est un rituel auquel, à l'heure dite, le major Ernest Pettigrew ne saurait déroger. Désormais veuf, ce parfait gentleman retraité du Royal Sussex a pour seule compagnie ses livres, ses chers Kipling, et quelques amis du club de golf - tous occupés à fuir leurs dames patronnesses. Et ce n'est guère son fils, dévoré par l'ambition et les jeux de pouvoir de la City, qui saurait être le complice de ses vieux jours. Quand l'amour se présente soudain à lui sous les traits de la douce Madame Ali - l'épicière d'origine Pakistanaise et de confession musulmane - la communauté villageoise s'émeut, l'équilibre familial vacille. Le major, si respectueux des traditions, saura-t-il mener sa dernière conquête contre les convenances, la vox populi et... lui-même ? Helen Simonson nous plonge avec délice dans un univers so british de campagne anglaise, de folklore et d'imaginaire colonial, et le confronte aux questions de notre temps. Sous sa plume alerte, on se laisse envoûter par la romance et les charmes éternels du royaume de Sa Gracieuse Majesté

The post-American world by Fareed Zakaria( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New York Times bestseller, revised and expanded with a new afterword: the essential update of Fareed Zakaria's international bestseller about America and its shifting position in world affairs. Fareed Zakaria's international bestseller The Post-American World pointed to the "rise of the rest"--The growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, and others -- as the great story of our time, the story that will undoubtedly shape the future of global power. Since its publication, the trends he identified have proceeded faster than anyone could have anticipated. The 2008 financial crisis turned the world upside down, stalling the United States and other advanced economies. Meanwhile emerging markets have surged ahead, coupling their economic growth with pride, nationalism, and a determination to shape their own future. In this new edition, Zakaria makes sense of this rapidly changing landscape. With his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination, he draws on lessons from the two great power shifts of the past 500 years -- the rise of the Western world and the rise of the United States -- to tell us what we can expect from the third shift, the "rise of the rest." The great challenge for Britain was economic decline. The challenge for America now is political decline, for as others have grown in importance, the central role of the United States, especially in the ascendant emerging markets, has already begun to shrink. As Zakaria eloquently argues, Washington needs to begin a serious transformation of its global strategy, moving from its traditional role of dominating hegemon to that of a more pragmatic, honest broker. It must seek to share power, create coalitions, build legitimacy, and define the global agenda -- all formidable tasks. None of this will be easy for the greatest power the world has ever known -- the only power that for so long has really mattered. America stands at a crossroads: In a new global era where the United States no longer dominates the worldwide economy, orchestrates geopolitics, or overwhelms cultures, can the nation continue to thrive? - Publisher

On revolution by Hannah Arendt( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolution is among the most recent of all major political phenomena. To analyze and interpret its meaning Dr. Arendt turns back to the first great examples: the American and the French. How was it possible for the first to accomplish its objectives under the control and guidance of the men who started it, while the second foundered in impotence and terror so that the onlookers came to believe that revolution must of necessity devour its own children? How could a Robespierre substitute an irresistible and anonymous stream of violence for the free and deliberate actions of men? What basic difference between the two made the French Revolution, with its emphasis on historical necessity, the apparently inescapable model for later revolutions in Russia and China--and them in turn models for later uprisings? What has happened to the ideal of freedom as the end and justification of revolution? What has happened to foundation--the novus ordo saeclorum? With her characteristic originality and brilliance of analysis, Dr. Arendt traces back to their beginnings the principles that underlie these great events, principles that contain the answers to these questions and throw light upon the present and the future. Finally, she advances a daring proposal for restoring the revolutionary virtues and eliminating the evils of mass society--a means of reconciling equality with authority and of restoring public happiness and public freedom to the people.--From book jacket
