Cor e du Nord Un tat gu rilla en mutation
La Corée du Nord est le pays le plus haï, mais aussi le plus mal connu de la planète. Comprendre les ressorts d’un système totalitaire sans équivalent par son monolithisme idéologique, l’inscrire dans son espace et dans son temps pour en saisir l’ancrage et décrypter le fonctionnement d’une économie émergente, de facto de marché : tel est l’objet de ce livre. La Corée du Nord est le fruit d'une histoire disputée : colonisée par le Japon (1910 1945) puis divisée par les États-Unis et l'URSS en 1945, partition entérinée trois ans plus tard et contestée par une guerre fratricide (1950-1953), et restée depuis sans traité de paix. Kim Il Sung au pouvoir a élevé la lutte de libération au rang de récit fondateur et organisé le pays sur le modèle d'une unité de guérilla, entretenant la population dans une mentalité d'assiégé permanent. La résilience de cet 'État-guérilla' est sans doute à chercher moins dans son caractère stalinien que dans un nationalisme invétéré. La Corée du Nord évolue néanmoins vers une économie hybride, où la frontière entre secteur public et initiative privée est de plus en plus floue et qui génère de profondes mutations sociales. Cette évolution interne a pour toile de fond des enjeux géostratégiques : les risques entraînés par les ambitions nucléaires de Pyongyang, les visées hégémoniques du puissant voisin chinois et le retour de la Russie dans le Grand Jeu diplomatique.
Science Technology and Medicine in the Modern Japanese Empire
Science, technology, and medicine all contributed to the emerging modern Japanese empire and conditioned key elements of post-war development. As the only emerging non-Western country that was a colonial power in its own right, Japan utilized these fields not only to define itself as racially different from other Asian countries and thus justify its imperialist activities, but also to position itself within the civilized and enlightened world with the advantages of modern science, technologies, and medicine. This book explores the ways in which scientists, engineers and physicians worked directly and indirectly to support the creation of a new Japanese empire, focussing on the eve of World War I and linking their efforts to later post-war developments. By claiming status as a modern, internationally-engaged country, the Japanese government was faced with having to control pathogens that might otherwise not have threatened the nation. Through the use of traditional and innovative techniques, this volume shows how the government was able to fulfil the state’s responsibility to protect society to varying degrees. The contributors push the field of the history of science, technology and medicine in Japan in new directions, raising questions about the definitions of diseases, the false starts in advancing knowledge, and highlighting the very human nature of fields which, on the surface, seem to non-specialists to be highly rational. Challenging older interpretative tendencies, this book highlights the vigour of the field and the potential for future development. Therefore, it will be of huge interest to students and scholars of Japanese history, Asian history, the history of science and technology and the history of medicine.
This is a historically founded, empirical study of social and economic transformation wrought by 'marketisation from below' in North Korea.

Picture of Dorian Gray
Dorian Gray, a young man of wealth and stature in late 1800’s London, meets Lord Henry Wotton while posing for a portrait by his friend Basil Hallward. Once the painting is complete, Dorian realizes that it will always be young and attractive, while he will be forced to age and wither with the years. Carelessly, he wishes the opposite were true. What happens is a treatise on morals, self- indulgence and how crucial personal responsibility is towards one’s self.
The State War and the State of War
Why do we have Rwandas, Bosnias, and Somalias? This book explores the sources of such bitter, prolonged conflicts that result in immense human tragedies of civilian deaths and mass refugee flows. The author argues that such conflicts, and not wars between states, are the wars of the future. What can the United Nations and other international institutions do about them? Can organizations designed to manage conflicts between states successfully manage wars whose origins are domestic? The author develops some ideas about conflict resolution and peace derived from such recent experiences of war.

This book outlines that its economic importance is matched by its significance as a cultural and aesthetic phenomenon.
