Médecin du RAID

Publisher: Albin Michel
« Que se passe-t-il sur une scène d'attentat ? Peu de gens le comprennent, peu le savent, beaucoup imaginent. D'autres fantasment... Et certains rapportent de fausses informations. Ce que j'ai vécu, en tant que médecin-chef du RAID est mon quotidien. Nous sommes formés pour "Servir sans faillir". Alors pourquoi m'exprimer ? Je le fais surtout pour les blessés dont la plupart ne savent pas comment ils s'en sont sortis. Face à la menace, qu'elle provienne d'armes de guerre ou d'explosifs, tout secours improvisé est d'autant plus inefficace qu'il peut entraîner la mort du secouriste. C'est la règle du métier : on ne peut soigner un blessé alors qu'un tireur est susceptible de nous prendre pour cible. J'ai considéré qu'il fallait avoir le courage de dire la vérité et d'expliquer ce que nous vivons. »

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - "On Friday night you stole the life of an exceptional person, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hate." On November 13, 2015, Antoine Leiris’s wife, Hélène Muyal-Leiris, was killed by terrorists while attending a rock concert at the Bataclan Theater in Paris, in the deadliest attack on France since World War II. Three days later, Leiris wrote an open letter addressed directly to his wife’s killers, which he posted on Facebook. He refused to be cowed or to let his seventeen-month-old son’s life be defined by Hélène’s murder. He refused to let the killers have their way: “For as long as he lives, this little boy will insult you with his happiness and freedom.” Instantly, that short Facebook post caught fire, and was reported on by newspapers and television stations all over the world. In his determination to honor the memory of his wife, he became an international hero to everyone searching desperately for a way to deal with the horror of the Paris attacks and the grim shadow cast today by the threat of terrorism. Now Leiris tells the full story of his grief and struggle. You Will Not Have My Hate is a remarkable, heartbreaking, and, indeed, beautiful memoir of how he and his baby son, Melvil, endured in the days and weeks after Hélène’s murder. With absolute emotional courage and openness, he somehow finds a way to answer that impossible question: how can I go on? He visits Hélène’s body at the morgue, has to tell Melvil that Mommy will not be coming home, and buries the woman he had planned to spend the rest of his life with. Leiris’s grief is terrible, but his love for his family is indomitable. This is the rare and unforgettable testimony of a survivor, and a universal message of hope and resilience. Leiris confronts an incomprehensible pain with a humbling generosity and grandeur of spirit. He is a guiding star for us all in these perilous times. His message—hate will be vanquished by love—is eternal. From the Hardcover edition.
An elegant, deeply felt memoir from Maryse Wolinski—journalist and widow of the late cartoonist Georges Wolinski, who died in the terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo—that is both a beautiful tribute to her late husband and a rallying call to action. “Darling, I’m going to Charlie.” These were the last words that prolific satirical cartoonist Georges Wolinski said to his wife, Maryse, as he left for work. Two hours later, terrorists barged into the Paris offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine, fatally shooting him and eleven others. Maryse remembers her marriage to Georges—forty-seven years of love and devotion—and the swift, cruel manner in which she lost him. From her grief comes a demand for answers as she investigates the failings of the French government in their security measures, especially when another terrorist attack occurs just eight months later. A celebrated journalist in her own right, Maryse writes with both clarity and authority, all the while exploring what made her relationship with Georges so singularly strong. Darling, I’m Going to Charlie is not only one woman’s beautiful tribute to her late husband, but also a stunning, courageous testimony and inspiring call for change.

The first environmental history of Vichy France, examining the intricate and often surprising connections between war, history, and the natural environment during these turbulent years.

In the immediate years and months before the outbreak of religious war in 1562 the growth of Protestantism in France had gone unchecked, and an overriding sense of Protestant triumphalism emerged in cities across the land. However, the wars unleashed a vigorous Catholic reaction that extinguished Protestant hopes of ultimate success. This offensive triggered violence across the provinces, paralysing Huguenot communities and sending many Protestant churches in northern France into terminal decline. But French Protestantism was never a uniform phenomenon and events in southern France took a rather different course from those in the north. This study explores the fate of the Huguenot community in the area of its greatest strength in southern France. The book examines the Protestant ascendancy in the Huguenot stronghold of Montauban through the period of the religious wars, laying open the impact that the new religion had upon the town and its surrounding locality, and the way in which the town related to the wider political and religious concerns of the Protestant south. In particular, it probes the way in which the town related to the nobility, the political assemblies, Henry of Navarre and the wider world of international Calvinism, reflecting upon the distinctive cultural elements that characterised Calvinism in southern France.

Cette jeunesse trouvait de pareilles m urs ignobles, mais elle les admettait. Elle en plaisantait meme, supportant l'idee de subir a son tour ces compromissions honteuses. Savade seul etait doue de la faculte d'indignation. Il me designait les villes d'eaux qui defilaient sous nos regards: La on exploite les malades de la facon la plus indigne.

When you think of the future, what do you see? Who is with you? Where do you live? The future is inevitably a vast set of unknown possibilities which, in a time of considerable and relentless change, can seem extremely daunting. But our futures are not completely foreign to us. 2038: The World's Futures demonstrates through the examination of facts and figures, alongside striking graphic collages, what the future might hold for us and what, more poignantly, we can do to shape it. By considering what we know today, it is possible to uncover not only the possibilities, but the opportunities that lay ahead of us, and recognise that the future is being invented today.
