À 16 ans, Edith Eger est déportée à Auschwitz avec sa famille. Repérée par Joseph Mengele, elle est choisie pour rejoindre la troupe de danseuse du camp. Elle survivra et réussira avec le temps à transformer le choc de l’horreur en formidable énergie de vie au service des traumatisés de l’existence : soldats en plein chaos, femmes battues ou violées, enfants en profonde souffrance. La vie du Dr Eger est une succession de choix pour s’échapper de son passé. Elle s’installe aux États-Unis en 1947, suit des études de psychologie pour comprendre le moteur de sa survie et celui des monstres qu’elle a fréquentés, choisit de donner la vie alors que les médecins le lui interdisent, s’occupe de grands blessés de la vie pour leur insuffler l’extraordinaire énergie et volonté qu’elle s’est forgée. Comment aider ses patients à faire le choix de la vie, de la reconstruction, c’est tout l’enjeu de la mission que le Dr Eger s’est donnée et qu’elle restitue dans cet ouvrage à partir de nombreux témoignages profondément émouvants de patients qu’elle a soignés et pour certains sauvés. « Le Choix est une extraordinaire chronique de l’héroïsme et de la guérison, de la résilience et de la compassion, de la survie dans la dignité, de force mentale et de courage moral. Nous avons tous quelque chose à apprendre des cas exemplaires traités par le Dr Eger et de son histoire personnelle si bouleversante. Chacun pourra y puiser une source de guérison dans sa propre existence. » Pr Philip Zimbardo, Université de Stanford Traduit de l’anglais par Johan-Frédérik Hel Guedj

Sophie's Choice has met a tremendous success since publication in 1979 and has been translated in many languages, including Japanese and Russian; it has been made into a movie by Alan Pakula, with Meryl Streep in the unforgettable leading role, and even gave birth to an opera. As usual William Styron gets down to brass tacks with one of the most awe-inspiring themes of the twentieth century : the final solution and the horror of the death-camps. In this bilingual study the emphasis is laid on the complexity of the narrative technique, the link between sexuality and violence, and the entanglement of historical, religious, philosophical and psychoanalytical references that make up the fabric of personal drama and human tragedy that Sophie's Choice represents. Patrick BADONNEL is a full professor of American literature at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University (Paris III) and former chair of the Agrégation. He is the author of several books on American contemporary writers (with C. Maisonnat) and has already published a book and several papers on William Styron's work. Also interested in the contemporary short story he is the author (with C. Maisonnat) of La Nouvelle Anglo-saxonne. Initiation à une lecture psychanalytique (Hachette Supérieur, 1998). Cet ouvrage est le fruit de la collaboration entre les éditions Armand Colin et le Centre National d'Enseignement à Distance, établissement public d'enseignement qui dispense des formations de tous niveaux à plus de 350 000 inscrits répartis dans le monde entier. Cette contribution scientifique d'enseignants chercheurs de l'Université française s'intègre dans les préparations assurées par le CNED aux CAPES et aux agrégations d'anglais qui comprennent aussi des conseils méthodologiques et des entraînements aux épreuves des concours avec correction personnalisée. General context and historical background. Narrative strategies at work in Sophie's Choice. The aesthetics of perversion and the European axis of evil in Sophie's Choice. Sexuality, textuality and liquidity. La confrontation pathologique des désirs. Totalitarisme et schizophrénie. Théologie et téléologie dans Sophie's Choice. Éthique et esthétique du texte.

Lorsque Rylee est obligée d'accepter un nouveau travail à Londres, elle ne s'attend certainement pas à devoir séjourner chez Jason. Cet homme hautain et colérique, mais également le plus séduisant qu'elle n'ait jamais connu ! Malgré l'attirance physique qu'elle éprouve pour lui, elle s'interdit de tomber amoureuse. C'est une limite qu'elle ne peut, malheureusement, pas franchir. Lorsque Jason est contraint d'héberger Rylee pour trois mois, il met tout en oeuvre pour ne pas céder à la tentation et briser la promesse qu'il a faite, il y a seize ans. Se montrer odieux est la seule façon pour lui de refouler ses sentiments. Seront-ils capables d'honorer leurs engagements sans se détruire ? Quand leur passé est encore trop présent et que tant de vies sont en jeu, quel choix leur reste-t-il ?

Romance contemporaine - 500 pages (réédition avec bonus inédit) Judi veille depuis toujours sur sa sœur Kelly, une adolescente rebelle. Les deux jeunes femmes emménagent à Miami Lakes pour profiter d'une nouvelle vie, fuyant l'ombre d'un passé destiné à rester enfoui. Tout aurait pu se concrétiser, si elles n'avaient choisi cette ville, théâtre d'une guerre sans merci entre deux clubs rivaux. Cade, membre des Infernal Sons, est missionné pour faire fuir les deux intruses. Mais sa détermination s'ébranle au contact de la fragile Judi, qui s'avère être bien plus forte qu'il n'y paraît. Kelly, confrontée à un mal-être qu'elle a bien du mal à exprimer, devient la soudaine obsession du ténébreux Dario, fils du leader des Los Toros, et tombe petit à petit sous le charme du jeune homme, au point de s'éloigner de sa protectrice. Entre mensonges et trahisons... qui, de l'amour ou la famille, l'emportera ?

One of the central problems in nutrition is the difficulty of getting people to change their dietary behaviours so as to bring about an improvement in health. What is required is a clearer understanding of the motivations of consumers, barriers to changing diets and how we might have an impact upon dietary behaviour. This book brings together theory, research and applications from psychology and behavioural sciences applied to dietary behaviour. The authors are all international leaders in their respective fields and together give an overview of the current understanding of consumer food choice.

Two new criminological approaches are defined and applied to categories of crime in Routine Activity and Rational Choice, now available in paperback. Routine activity analyzes the criminal event, and avoids motivations and psychology as topics for discussion, whereas rational choice approaches crime as purposive behavior designed to meet the offender's commonplace needs, such as money, status, sex, and excitement. These conceptual models are both employed to analyze such crimes as drunk driving, gun use, kidnapping, and political violence. This volume discusses the relationship of these theories to more traditional approaches to crime studies. The Advances in Criminological Theory series encourages theory construction and validation in the articles and themes selected for publication. It also furthers the free exchange of ideas, propositions, and postulates. Following publication of the first volume, Michael J. Lynch of Florida State University asserted that "Advances in Criminological Theory is to be applauded as an attempt to revive criminological theory by providing an accessible outlet." Contributions to this volume include: Pierre Tremblay, "Searching for Suitable Co-offenders"; Raymond Paternoster and Sally Simpson, "A Rational Choice Theory of Corporate Crime"; Richard B. Felson, "Predatory and Dispute-related Violence"; Gordon Trasler, "Conscience, Opportunity, Rational Choice, and Crime"; Ezzat A. Fattah, "The Rational Choice/Opportunity Perspectives as a Vehicle for Integrating Criminological and Victimological Theories"; Patricia L. Brantingham and Paul J. Brantingham, "Environment, Routine, and Situation"; Maurice Cusson, "A Strategic Analysis of Crime"; Richard W. Harding, "Gun Use in Crime, Rational Choice, and Social Learning Theory."
