Making our democracy work : a judge's view by Stephen G Breyer( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Major Pettigrew's last stand : a novel by Helen Simonson( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 37 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

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

The racketeer by John Grisham( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who is the racketeer? And what does he have to do with the judge's untimely demise? His name is Malcolm Bannister, a former attorney now incarcerated at the Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland. When a federal judge and his secretary fail to appear for a scheduled trial and panicked clerks call for an FBI investigation, a harrowing murder case ensues and culminates in the imprisonment of a lawyer who imparts the story of who killed the judge and why. Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five. His body was found in the basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies, Judge Fawcett and his young secretary, and one state-of-the-art, extremely secure safe, opened and emptied. I did not know Judge Fawcett, but I know who killed him, and why. I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. It's a long story.--From book jacket
