  • "Ils auraient donné leur propre vie pour sauver celle de leur fils, mais personne n'en voulait parce que ce n'est pas comme ça que ça marche."
    "Le don de sang ne va pas de soi. Parler souvent de ce sujet, avec enthousiasme et bienveillance : voilà l'objectif de ce recueil. Des histoires courtes, des histoires de partage, de lumière, d'espoir. Puissent-elles susciter l'envie de parler à votre tour du don de sang. Puissent-elles être le déclic pour devenir vous-même donneur régulier."
    Comment le décès d'une jeune Américaine, Rebecca, entraîne un incroyable mouvement de solidarité. Comment la rencontre entre Gaëlle et Julien, autour d'un café, ne se déroule pas de la façon attendue. Comment Rachel, soixante-dix ans, transmet un peu de son histoire à sa petite-nièce. Comment les "liens du sang" dont parle Dimitri dans sa verve adolescente ne sont pas ceux qu'on imagine...

  • Arminius the Liberator deals with the modern reception of Arminius. Martin M. Winkler examines the ideological abuse of historical myth in German nationalism and National Socialism and its various international ramifications up until today. Special emphasis is on the representation of Arminius in visual media.

  • Arminius the Liberator deals with the complex modern reception of Arminius the Cheruscan, commonly called Hermann. Arminius inflicted one of their most devastating defeats on the Romans in the year 9 A.D. by annihilating three legions under the command of Quintilius Varus in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, as it is generally if inaccurately called. This book traces the origin of the Arminius myth in antiquity and its political, artistic, and popular developments since the nineteenth century. The books central themes are the nationalist use and abuse of history and historical myth in Germany, especially during the Weimar Republic and National Socialism, the reactions to a discredited ideology involving Arminius in post-war Europe, and revivals of his myth in the United States. Special emphasis is on the representation of Arminius in visual media since the 1960s: from painting and theater to cinema, television, and computer animation.

  • This book brings together policymakers, high-level practitioners, academics, and experts from central banks and international institutions in order to review key policy challenges for convergence in the region of central, eastern and south-eastern Europe. Contributions focus especially on inflation, growth, migration and the balance of payments.
