• Le mauvais oeil

    G Morris

    Peter Warren, le détective privé franco-américain, se retrouve pris dans les mailles de la mafia et dans les griffes d'une belle italienne
    " Bernard Anglebert, un auteur de polars a l'impression depuis quelque temps d'être observé et suivi dans la rue. Est-ce par les deux ritals qui l'ont coincé dans son garage pour lui faire dire où est Rosita ? Le hic, c'est qu'il ne sait pas où elle est, et encore moins qui elle est ! Comme l'auteur de polars n'a pas l'étoffe de son héros, il me demande de me lancer sur la piste qui me conduit assez rapidement aux deux Italiens... exécutés entre temps d'une balle dans la nuque. De là, je fais la connaissance de leur soeur, la ravissante Claudia, désormais seule à la merci des assassins de ses deux frères. " Peter Warren

  • Londres, juillet 44, les bombes pleuvent sur la ville. John G. Morris est photo-éditeur au prestigieux magazine américain Life où il est chargé depuis 1943 de la couverture photo de la guerre en Europe occidentale. C'est lui qui a sauvé onze images du reportage historique du débarquement en Normandie réalisé le 6 juin 44 par Robert Capa dont les films ont été endommagés au développement. John ne tient plus en place à Londres. Muni d'un appareil photo emprunté au bureau, il décide de partir pour la France. Pendant un mois, il va suivre la progression des troupes américaines, en Normandie, puis en Bretagne, accompagnant les photographes de Life Bob Capa, Robert Landry, Frank Scherschel...  Il y rencontre des populations qui accueillent les Américains à bras ouverts mais découvre aussi une armée allemande en déroute. Devenu photographe pour la seule fois de sa vie, il rapporte une douzaine de pellicules en noir et blanc oubliées dans ses tiroirs jusqu'à ce jour. Ses images fraîches et émouvantes, rassemblées pour la première fois dans un livre, accompagnées des lettres qu'il écrivit à sa femme depuis « quelque part en France » (somewhere  in France) en raison de la censure, relatent sa rencontre enthousiaste avec un pays et des gens qu'il découvre et  aime déjà.

  • Schizophrenia: Recent Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment is a major addition to the literature, offering practical, comprehensive coverage of diagnosis and treatment options, genetic issues, neuroimaging, long-term management of schizophrenia, and future directions and predictions of how clinical care of schizophrenia will change.  The book is divided into five sections. Section 1 summarizes the present state of knowledge about the diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia. This includes recent changes in the DSM 5 categorization of schizophrenia and its implications for treatment. Section 2 considers recent discoveries into its pathoetiology, including the status of biological markers, genetics and neuroimaging as they relate to diagnosis and potential novel therapeutic approaches. Section 3 explores the optimization of present therapeutic approaches; novel treatments; and management of the substantial risks associated with both the illness and its present therapies. Section 4 discusses progress in the long-term management of schizophrenia, focusing on biological and psychotherapeutic strategies to improve functioning and facilitate recovery.  Section 5 considers future directions and predictions of how diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia will change.  An invaluable addition to the field, Schizophrenia: Recent Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment is a definitive resource that will be of great interest to all clinicians caring for patients with schizophrenia.

  • A third or more of the energy consumption of industrialized countries is expended on creating acceptable thermal and lighting conditions in buildings. As a result, building heat transfer is keenly important to the design of buildings, and the resulting analytical theory forms the basis of most design procedures. Analytical Theory of Building Heat Transfer is the first comprehensive reference of its kind, a one-volume compilation of current findings on heat transfer relating to the thermal behavior of buildings, forming a logical basis for current design procedures.

  • This hugely informative and wide-ranging analysis on the management of projects, past, present and future, is written both for practitioners and scholars. Beginning with a history of the discipline's development, Reconstructing Project Management provides an extensive commentary on its practices and theoretical underpinnings, and concludes with proposals to improve its relevancy and value. Written not without a hint of attitude, this is by no means simply another project management textbook. The thesis of the book is that `it all depends on how you define the subject'; that much of our present thinking about project management as traditionally defined is sometimes boring, conceptually weak, and of limited application, whereas in reality it can be exciting, challenging and enormously important. The book draws on leading scholarship and case studies to explore this thesis. The book is divided into three major parts. Following an Introduction setting the scene, Part 1 covers the origins of modern project management - how the discipline has come to be what it is typically said to be; how it has been constructed - and the limitations of this traditional model. Part 2 presents an enlarged view of the discipline and then deconstructs this into its principal elements. Part 3 then reconstructs these elements to address the challenges facing society, and the implications for the discipline, in the years ahead.  A final section reprises the sweep of the discipline's development and summarises the principal insights from the book. This thoughtful commentary on project (and program, and portfolio) management as it has developed and has been practiced over the last 60-plus years, and as it may be over the next 20 to 40, draws on examples from many industry sectors around the world. It is a seminal work, required reading for everyone interested in projects and their management.
