Les Petites bulles de l attention
Aider nos enfants à mieux se concentrer à l’école (et au-dehors) et leurs parents à mieux résister à l’éparpillement de leur propre attention, c’est la mission que s’est fixée Jean-Philippe Lachaux, neuroscientifique, spécialiste de l’attention, avec ce livre vivant et coloré qui est bien plus qu’une simple bande dessinée (les dessins aussi sont de l’auteur !). On trouve dans cet ouvrage non seulement un guide illustré du cerveau (pour les plus jeunes), mais aussi des fiches pour approfondir les notions essentielles (pour les lecteurs un peu plus âgés) et des exercices à faire chez soi (pour tous, y compris les parents et les grands-parents !). Qui a dit qu’on ne pouvait pas apprendre à se concentrer tout en s’amusant ? Jean-Philippe Lachaux est ancien élève de l’École polytechnique. il est directeur de recherche en neurosciences cognitives au sein de l’unité Inserm « Dynamique Cérébrale et Cognition » à Lyon. Il est l’auteur du Cerveau attentif. Contrôle, maîtrise et lâcher-prise et du Cerveau funambule. Comprendre et apprivoiser son attention grâce aux neurosciences, qui ont rencontré un grand succès.

Wild Frenchmen and Frenchified Indians
Based on a sweeping range of archival, visual, and material evidence, Wild Frenchmen and Frenchified Indians examines perceptions of Indians in French colonial Louisiana and demonstrates that material culture—especially dress—was central to the elaboration of discourses about race. At the heart of France's seventeenth-century plans for colonizing New France was a formal policy—Frenchification. Intended to turn Indians into Catholic subjects of the king, it also carried with it the belief that Indians could become French through religion, language, and culture. This fluid and mutable conception of identity carried a risk: while Indians had the potential to become French, the French could themselves be transformed into Indians. French officials had effectively admitted defeat of their policy by the time Louisiana became a province of New France in 1682. But it was here, in Upper Louisiana, that proponents of French-Indian intermarriage finally claimed some success with Frenchification. For supporters, proof of the policy's success lay in the appearance and material possessions of Indian wives and daughters of Frenchmen. Through a sophisticated interdisciplinary approach to the material sources, Wild Frenchmen and Frenchified Indians offers a distinctive and original reading of the contours and chronology of racialization in early America. While focused on Louisiana, the methodological model offered in this innovative book shows that dress can take center stage in the investigation of colonial societies—for the process of colonization was built on encounters mediated by appearance.
The Lunatic Cafe
'You don't volunteer for slugfests with vampires. It shortens your life expectancy.' And you don't fall in love with a werewolf. It interferes with your work. Especially when you're a preternatural expert, like me. My name is Anita Blake. My business brings me up close and personal with all shapes and sizes of monsters. And not all of them want to kill me. Take, for instance, the local pack of lycanthrops - they're werewolves to you. A number of them are missing, and they've come to me for help. Maybe because I'm dating the leader of the pack. I've survived a lot - from jealous vampires to killer zombies - but this love thing may kill me yet.
The inimitable Richard Jury returns in the latest in the bestselling mystery series: “Martha Grimes has written a whodunit with terrific characters and a grand plot mixed with her unique droll wit. Vertigo 42 is one smart mystery!” (Susan Isaacs, bestselling author of Goldberg Variations) Richard Jury is meeting Tom Williamson at Vertigo 42, a bar on the forty-second floor of an office building in London’s financial district. Despite inconclusive evidence, Tom is convinced his wife, Tess, was murdered seventeen years ago. The inspector in charge of the case was sure Tess’s death was accidental—a direct result of vertigo—but the official police inquiry is still an open verdict and Jury agrees to re-examine the case. Jury learns that a nine-year-old girl fell to her death five years before Tess at the same place in Devon where Tess died, at a small house party. Jury seeks out the five surviving party guests, who are now adults, hoping they can shed light on this bizarre coincidence. Ultimately, four deaths—two in the past, two that occur on the pages of this intricate, compelling novel—keep Richard Jury and his sidekick Sergeant Wiggins running from their homes in Islington to the countryside in Devon and to London as they try to figure out if the deaths were accidental or not. And, if they are connected. Witty, well-written, with literary references from Thomas Hardy to Yeats, Vertigo 42 is a pitch perfect, page-turning novel from a mystery writer at the top of her game.

An Atlas of Another America
Owning a home is the pinnacle of the American Dream, the ultimate status symbol of the middle class. But is the dream in crisis? As the suburban single-family home has been endlessly multiplied and mass-marketed, it has become entwined with environmental catastrophe and economic crisis. Never before have we been so badly in need of a reconsideration of our cultural values and consumption from an architectural perspective. With An Atlas of Another America, Keith Krumwiede has written a bold and highly original work of speculative architectural fiction that calls on Americans--and, increasingly, the rest of the world--to seriously reconsider the concept of the single-family home. Krumwiede's "Freedomland" is a fictional utopia of communal superhomes constructed from the remains of the suburban metropolis. Eschewing formal innovation for its own sake, Freedomland's radical architects rely on artful appropriation and the reorganization of found forms. Krumwiede produces the complete plans for Freedomland in the style of a historical architectural treatise, supplemented with more than two hundred plans and drawings and five essays that draw on a long lineage of architectural thought--from Piranesi to Ledoux, Branzi, and Koolhaas. Among the essays, "Atypical Plans" is a redaction of Koolhaas's landmark text "Typical Plan," "Supermodel Homes" looks at the mad genius of developer David Weekley," and "New Homes for America" is a short story in which a young architect produces new forms of communal living.
Cerveau attentif Le
Vous n’en avez peut-être pas conscience, mais toute votre perception du monde, votre rapport à ce qui vous entoure, aux autres et à vous-même sont déterminés par un petit quelque chose qui vaut de l’or : votre attention – sans cesse convoitée et courtisée, toujours menacée. Cet ouvrage vous propose précisément de « faire attention à votre attention » dans votre vie quotidienne, pour en tirer un meilleur parti. Pourquoi l’attention échappe-t-elle si souvent au contrôle volontaire ? Pourquoi est-il si difficile de rester concentré ? Que faire pour ne pas se laisser dériver ou pour éviter de papillonner ? C’est dans le cerveau qu’il faut chercher ces secrets, que les neurosciences modernes commencent à pénétrer. Jean-Philippe Lachaux est directeur de recherche à l’Inserm, au sein du Centre de recherche en neurosciences de Lyon. Il anime un groupe dédié à la compréhension des mécanismes cérébraux des grandes fonctions cognitives humaines.
