Untouched : Egypt’s Revolution in Graffiti

Aujourd’hui un livre Anglais, celui de Rasha SABER. Inutile de bien comprendre l’anglais pour apprécier les photos de graffiti témoignant des idées de ceux qui se sont exprimés lors du fleurissement des printemps arabes en 2010. Le livre se parcours, se lit, s’approfondit, se médite, se garde…

Youth Pen

The tightly woven narrative of a young man who was there when the Feds’ most ambitious plan backfired. America is still paying the price. Confronted with an unprecedented flood of young federal felons in the late 1960s, the Bureau of Prisons decided to isolate the youth of America in a penitentiary geared solely toward convicts between the ages of 18 and 28; to keep these young offenders from older convict populations. Nonviolent youths who had committed victimless crimes were caged in an environment that drove them to become even more criminal in order to survive.

POINTMAN

Pointman is the story of one man’s fight for love and survival in a world of drugs and violence. But the pointman’s plans are at odds with Sergeant Mike Brooks, whose focus is on survival and marrying his Vietnamese girlfriend. Brooks’ objectives collide with Lieutenant Gomez, a highly-decorated career officer who is trigger-happy and a glory hunter. Tension mounts, a hellish firefight follows; a vow of revenge, and a struggle over a poison needle bring the story to a breathtaking climax.

THE DEATH OF AN INSTITUTION

THE DEATH OF AN INSTITUTION is a humorous take on entrepreneurs and employees. It takes us through the journey from the birth of an idea to its death and offers an opportunity to
not only identify personal and organizational flaws, but nurture talent and potential, improve performance and make life more endurable for contemporaries. Its goal is the overall development
of employers and employees as people, and their relationship being symbiotic rather than parasitic, striving to make a better organization.

Egypt’s Arab Spring : The long and winding road to democracy

The long and winding road for Democracy in Egypt is a well thoughtout analysis of the political and social upheaval caused by the Egyptian revolution. It investigates how Egyptians at all levels are
coping with its aftermath; economically, socially and politically. The post-revolution events are analyzed to reveal the causes and mistakes of the uprising. The roles of all major players are
examined, with particular criticism for those who led to the near destruction of an age-old dream for all Egyptians.

L’Afrique et le Monde, hier et aujourd’hui – Les conséquences pour demain

L’HISTOIRE COMMUNE DE NOS ANCÊTRES, COMBINAISON DE PENSÉES, PAROLES, ACTES ET
OEUVRES, MÉRITE D’ÊTRE PRESENTÉE EN DES TERMES SIMPLES, CLAIRS ET ACCESSIBLES À TOUS

L’Afrique et le Monde, hier et aujourd’hui nous invite à plonger dans le monde et le quotidien des premiers peuples natifs africains. Ce livre nous permet de comprendre leurs évolutions, leurs découvertes, leurs luttes, ainsi que les regroupements et la psychologie qui y sont entremêlés, afin de mieux appréhender leur réaction face à l’esclavage et à la colonisation. Il nous démontre à quel point est vraie l’affirmation selon laquelle les États n’ont pas de sentiments, ils n’ont que des intérêts.

Soizigno Pissang est le cadet d’une famille de quatre enfants. Fils d’un père inspecteur de l’Éducation nationale et d’une mère vendeuse de bijoux, il étudie le droit privé à l’Université Catholique de l’Afrique de l’Ouest – Unité Universitaire du Togo. Dans ce livre, il établit une forte relation entre le passé, le présent et l’avenir ; il fait appel à la conscience, à la sagesse et
au discernement de chacun. En signant son premier essai, l’auteur nous livre dans ce récit un zoom sur le lot de joies ingénues et de pleurs amers qui constitue l’histoire de tous les peuples, en vue d’une part de les rapprocher et d’autre part de comprendre et de solutionner les maux liés aux chocs entre les cultures.
