A separate chapter on multiple pregnancy has been added given that multiple pregnancies are at high risk of developing problems and therefore require greater attention. • An entire section of intrapartum problems has been added, making this a comprehensive Obstetric text. • The editors have managed to persuade leaders in the field to write for this edition. The chapters are authored by researchers working on the coalface. Their first-hand experience, knowledge, wisdom and hard work are evident in this edition.

Bien que les femmes aient, partout dans le monde, obtenu des gains notables au cours des dernières décennies, les inégalités entre les hommes et les femmes et les injustices fondées sur le genre continuent d'empêcher les femmes de réaliser leurs droits et leur plein exercice au titre de citoyennes et de partenaires à part entière dans les processus décisionnels et le développement. Les études présentées ici relient la réflexion actuelle sur la justice de genre aux débats sur la citoyenneté, les droits, les lois et le développement.

Spécialiste internationale de l’Union soviétique, Hélène Carrère d’Encausse évoque le réveil des cents nations soviétiques qui menace l’existence-même de l’URSS. Leur langue, leur culture, leur histoire sont dissemblables. Les voici à la recherche de leur patrimoine, de leur identité au lieu de se fondre au creuset de Brejnev. Si les Russes d’Europe contrôlent l’armée,(sur 101 généraux, 97 sont slaves, les autres ukrainiens), le Politburo (où ils sont 90 %), l’enseignement, les médias, la police, leur population décroît alors que celle des Républiques d’Asie centrale triple.Sait-on que les 50 millions de musulmans en URSS seront bientôt 80 millions ? Leur bloc cohérent rassemble plus du cinquième de la population soviétique. Pour eux, les enfants issus de mariages civils ne sont pas légitimes. Non seulement ils suivent la loi de l’Islam mais ils convertissent les nomades des montagnes à la frontière de l’Iran. Ils estiment que Marx n’est qu’un demi-prophète, entre Bouddha et Jésus. De même, les anciens Mongols, les Tatars, les peuples du Caucase, les Kalmouks, les Samoyèdes, les 37 millions d’Ukrainiens, etc. tolèrent de plus en plus mal l’autoritarisme des Russes d’Europe. Ces nations revendiquent leur droit à l’autonomie tandis que se développe une vive conscience de leur histoire, de leur tradition. On assiste à une renaissance de la foi juive, orthodoxe, islamique, chez les jeunes. Ce bouillonnement représente un élément d’insécurité. Devant le mouvement irréversible de l’hostilité des provinces, le pouvoir central est impuissant. De tous les problèmes auxquels doit faire face le régime soviétique, cette contestation est la plus irréductible. Est-ce la raison pour laquelle le pouvoir se durcit à l’intérieur tandis que l’empire soviétique cherche à s’étendre en Afrique ?L’Empire éclaté, un livre-clef qui permet de comprendre un phénomène capital de notre temps.
