Les attentats contre de Gaulle, les coulisses des voyages de François Mitterrand, le suicide de Pierre Bérégovoy, le caillassage de Lionel Jospin, les mésaventures de Jacques Chirac en Afrique, les tensions avec le Secret Service américain, l’« évacuation » du couple Sarkozy en Israël, les arcanes des sommets internationaux, un secrétaire d’État pris dans une fusillade, un ministre tenu en joue dans un aéroport, une voiture suicide... Autant d’événements racontés pour la première fois par ceux qui les ont vécus. Créé en 1934, à la suite de l’assassinat du roi Alexandre Ier à Marseille, le Service des Voyages officiels s’est considérablement développé, jusqu’à devenir l’actuel Service de la Protection (SDLP), considéré comme l’un des meilleurs du monde. Ce livre relate les grandes étapes de cette évolution. Il détaille le passage d’une protection rapprochée un peu sommaire à une organisation parfaitement huilée. Tout en évoquant les progrès techniques et technologiques, il s’attache à l’aspect humain, aux hommes de terrain, face aux grands, et aux moins grands, de ce monde, face aux incidents de dernière minute, face au danger. Surprenantes, amusantes, tragiques, mais toujours instructives, de nombreuses anecdotes pour la plupart totalement inédites – émaillent cet ouvrage. Entrez dans les coulisses de la protection des « puissants » qui n’ont pas de secrets pour leurs officiers de sécurité.

1977 ermordeten Terroristen der RAF den Generalbundesanwalt Siegfried Buback, den Vorstandssprecher der Dresdner Bank Jürgen Ponto und den Arbeitgeberpräsidenten Hanns-Martin Schleyer. Die Bedrohung durch diese Attentate stellte die deutschen Sicherheitsbehörden damals vor völlig neue Herausforderungen beim Schutz der höchsten Repräsentanten des Staates. Das Bundeskriminalamt, geleitet von Horst Herold, entwickelte daher neue, professionellere Personenschutzkonzepte. In dieser umfangreichen Zeitzeugenstudie, in der mit Helmut Schmidt, Gerhart Baum, Hans-Jochen Vogel oder Roman Herzog hochrangige Vertreter der damaligen politischen Elite zu Wort kommen, fragt die Autorin, wie die Politiker und ihre Familien mit dem ständigen Personenschutz umgingen, dessen rechtliche und institutionelle Grundlagen in den 1970er-Jahren entstanden. Welcher emotionale Habitus bestimmte ihren Umgang mit der Bedrohung? Wie veränderte sich ihr Verhalten im öffentlichen und privaten Raum? Beeinflussten Unsicherheit und Angst ihr politisches Handeln?

In Jared Diamond’s follow-up to the Pulitzer-Prize winning Guns, Germs and Steel, the author explores how climate change, the population explosion and political discord create the conditions for the collapse of civilization Environmental damage, climate change, globalization, rapid population growth, and unwise political choices were all factors in the demise of societies around the world, but some found solutions and persisted. As in Guns, Germs, and Steel, Diamond traces the fundamental pattern of catastrophe, and weaves an all-encompassing global thesis through a series of fascinating historical-cultural narratives. Collapse moves from the Polynesian cultures on Easter Island to the flourishing American civilizations of the Anasazi and the Maya and finally to the doomed Viking colony on Greenland. Similar problems face us today and have already brought disaster to Rwanda and Haiti, even as China and Australia are trying to cope in innovative ways. Despite our own society’s apparently inexhaustible wealth and unrivaled political power, ominous warning signs have begun to emerge even in ecologically robust areas like Montana. Brilliant, illuminating, and immensely absorbing, Collapse is destined to take its place as one of the essential books of our time, raising the urgent question: How can our world best avoid committing ecological suicide? From the Trade Paperback edition.

On December 1, 1851, Charras[1] shrugged his shoulder and unloaded his pistols. In truth, the belief in the possibility of a coup d'état had become humiliating. The supposition of such illegal violence on the part of M. Louis Bonaparte vanished upon serious consideration. The great question of the day was manifestly the Devincq election; it was clear that the Government was only thinking of that matter. As to a conspiracy against the Republic and against the People, how could any one premeditate such a plot? Where was the man capable of entertaining such a dream? For a tragedy there must be an actor, and here assuredly the actor was wanting. To outrage Right, to suppress the Assembly, to abolish the Constitution, to strangle the Republic, to overthrow the Nation, to sully the Flag, to dishonor the Army, to suborn the Clergy and the Magistracy, to succeed, to triumph, to govern, to administer, to exile, to banish, to transport, to ruin, to assassinate, to reign, with such complicities that the law at last resembles a foul bed of corruption. What! All these enormities were to be committed! And by whom? By a Colossus? No, by a dwarf. People laughed at the notion. They no longer said "What a crime!" but "What a farce!" For after all they reflected; heinous crimes require stature. Certain crimes are too lofty for certain hands. A man who would achieve an 18th Brumaire must have Arcola in his past and Austerlitz in his future. The art of becoming a great scoundrel is not accorded to the first comer. People said to themselves, Who is this son of Hortense? He has Strasbourg behind him instead of Arcola, and Boulogne in place of Austerlitz. He is a Frenchman, born a Dutchman, and naturalized a Swiss; he is a Bonaparte crossed with a Verhuell; he is only celebrated for the ludicrousness of his imperial attitude, and he who would pluck a feather from his eagle would risk finding a goose's quill in his hand. This Bonaparte does not pass currency in the array, he is a counterfeit image less of gold than of lead, and assuredly French soldiers will not give us the change for this false Napoleon in rebellion, in atrocities, in massacres, in outrages, in treason. If he should attempt roguery it would miscarry. Not a regiment would stir. Besides, why should he make such an attempt? Doubtless he has his suspicious side, but why suppose him an absolute villain? Such extreme outrages are beyond him; he is incapable of them physically, why judge him capable of them morally? Has he not pledged honor? Has he not said, "No one in Europe doubts my word?" Let us fear nothing. To this could be answered, Crimes are committed either on a grand or on a mean scale. In the first category there is Caesar; in the second there is Mandrin. Caesar passes the Rubicon, Mandrin bestrides the gutter. But wise men interposed, "Are we not prejudiced by offensive conjectures? This man has been exiled and unfortunate. Exile enlightens, misfortune corrects."

An investigation of Jewish identity politics and Jewish contemporary ideology using both popular culture and scholarly texts. Jewish identity is tied up with some of the most difficult and contentious issues of today. The purpose in this book is to open many of these issues up for discussion. Since Israel defines itself openly as the ‘Jewish State’, we should ask what the notions of ’Judaism’, ‘Jewishness’, ‘Jewish culture’ and ‘Jewish ideology’ stand for. Gilad examines the tribal aspects embedded in Jewish secular discourse, both Zionist and anti Zionist; the ‘holocaust religion’; the meaning of ‘history’ and ‘time’ within the Jewish political discourse; the anti-Gentile ideologies entangled within different forms of secular Jewish political discourse and even within the Jewish left. He questions what it is that leads Diaspora Jews to identify themselves with Israel and affiliate with its politics. The devastating state of our world affairs raises an immediate demand for a conceptual shift in our intellectual and philosophical attitude towards politics, identity politics and history.
