Africa since 1940 : the past of the present by Frederick Cooper( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in French and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick Cooper's latest book on the history of decolonization and independence in Africa initiates a new textbook series: New Approaches to African History. His book will help readers understand the historical processes which have shaped Africa's current position in the world. Covering the last half-century, it bridges the divide between colonial and post-colonial history, allowing readers to see just what political independence did and did not signify. The book follows the "development question" across time, seeing how first colonial regimes and then African governments sought to transform African societies in their own ways. Readers will see how men and women, peasants and workers, religious leaders and local leaders found space within the crevices of state power to refashion the way they lived, worked, and interacted with each other. And they will see that the effort to turn colonial territories into independent nation-states was only one of the ways in which radical political and social movements imagined their future and how deeply the claims of such movements continued to challenge states after independence. By looking at the post-war era as a whole, one can begin to understand the succession of crises that colonial and post-colonial states faced without getting into a sterile debate over whether a colonial "legacy" or the failings of African governments are the cause of Africa's current situation."--Provided by publisher

Colonialism in question : theory, knowledge, history by Frederick Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this closely integrated collection of essays on colonialism in world history, Frederick Cooper raises crucial questions about concepts relevant to a wide range of issues in the social sciences and humanities, including identity, globalization, and modernity. Rather than portray the past two centuries as the inevitable movement from empire to nation-state, Cooper places nationalism within a much wider range of imperial and diasporic imaginations, of rulers and ruled alike, well into the twentieth century. He addresses both the insights and the blind spots of colonial studies in an effort to get beyond the tendency in the field to focus on a generic colonialism located sometime between 1492 and the 1960s and somewhere in the "West." Broad-ranging, cogently argued, and with a historical focus that moves from Africa to South Asia to Europe, these essays, most published here for the first time, propose a fuller engagement in the give-and-take of history, not least in the ways in which concepts usually attributed to Western universalism--including citizenship and equality--were defined and reconfigured by political mobilizations in colonial contexts
Empires in world history : power and the politics of difference by Jane Burbank( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book "departs from conventional European and nation-centered perspectives to take a remarkable look at how empires relied on diversity to shape the global order.

Quoi de neuf ? du rôle des techniques dans l'histoire globale by David Edgerton( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voici un essai capital sur les rapports entre technique et société. Cette histoire globale de la technologie moderne prend le contre-pied du récit habituel centré sur les inventions de quelques individus géniaux pour mettre au premier plan l'analyse des usages collectifs. David Edgerton est ainsi amené à réévaluer profondément le rôle des technologies dans la société. Bien au-delà de la liste usuelle des innovations modernes couramment tenues pour avoir transformé notre existence - la pilule, l'informatique, la bombe atomique, l'aviation -, il faut prendre en compte une grande variété de technologies moins visibles mais non moins importantes, venant de diverses parties du monde...

Thinking beyond lean : how multi-project management is transforming product development at Toyota and other companies by Michael A Cusumano( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in French and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Lean Thinking" has dominated product development and project management for over a decade. Now, however, a six-year study by MIT's International Motor Vehicle Program led by Michael Cusumano and Kentaro Nobeoka finds that, in order to dramatically improve product portfolios, Toyota and other leading companies are moving beyond single-project management on which lean thinking is based. Drawing on a data base of 210 automobile products and detailed case studies from Toyota, Ford, GM, Chrysler, Nissan, Honda, Mazda, Renault, and Fiat, the authors demonstrate how product development teams can share engineers and key common components but retain separate designers to maintain distinctive product features. The result: multi-project management has brought these companies huge savings in development and production costs." "Cusumano and Nobeoka's findings will be required reading for every company that makes more than one product."--Jacket

From Eros to Gaia by Freeman J Dyson( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of Freeman Dyson's previous books, Disturbing the Universe, Weapons and Hope, and Infinite in All Directions, have discovered for themselves what Dyson reveals here: that he was a writer long before he became a distinguished scientist. The aim of this new book, as Dyson says, is to open windows, to let the experts inside the temple of science see out, and to let the ordinary citizens outside see in." In this process an immensely broad range of ideas, people, contemporary history, and discoveries of many sorts pass in review. Beginning with a piece of writing he did as a child and ending with recent work, he goes from Eros, the god or youthful passion, to Gaia, the fertile life-giving mother-planet Earth. The pilgrimage is a good metaphor for the life of a writer. This book is full of discoveries. In the company of one of the most lucid minds of our time, one approaches great men and problems central to our common existence. Always there is warmth, kindness, high intelligence and humor. Dyson is intimate with both science and man. Whether he is dealing with the problems of physics or politics, whether he is engrossed in astronomy or literature, whether he is concentrating on an African village of space science, Dyson's view is always "infinite in all directions," always following the path of diversity, always keeping his eye on the wonder of our earth and the health and happiness of its inhabitants
