Ces jeunes devenus criminels
Portraits de ces jeunes à la dérive de la société Ils utilisent des procédés mafieux, ils entretiennent des relations étroites avec la pègre, ils sont pleins de haine, de vengeance et de rejet de la société, ils torturent, volent, violent, tuent... « Ils » ? Des jeunes. Généralement sans repères affectifs et sociétaux, parfois nés dans de « bonnes » familles. Dans ce livre « vérité », voici la relation de procès de Cours d’assises où furent jugés des jeunes parfois accusés des pires crimes. Souvent, ils furent catalogués de « psychopathes », rarement on leur reconnut des circonstances atténuantes...et les peines tombèrent, lourdes de dizaines d’années de prison... « l’école du crime organisé » selon un avocat célèbre. À chaque témoignage, à chaque enquête, à chaque plaidoirie ou réquisitoire, à chaque verdict, le lecteur sera confronté à une dure réalité... que notre société ne peut plus banaliser ! A PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR : Pierre Guelff, chroniqueur judiciaire, a assisté à quelque 300 procès de Cour d’assises et a suivi des dossiers aussi importants que les affaires Dutroux, Fourniret, Cons-Boutboul, Tapie-Valenciennes, de grand banditisme, du génocide du Rwanda, d’islamistes..., mais, aussi, à ces « tranches de vie et de mort », véritables reflets de notre société, qui font le quotidien de procès moins médiatisés et que l’auteur, devenu chroniqueur radio-TV, nous relate dans le présent document exceptionnel de « vérité ». EXTRAIT : « Les jeunes et le crime » est un thème qui interpelle toute la société, comme le démontrent d’importantes études réalisées sur ce sujet récurrent. La télévision (Addik TV, RTBF, 13e Rue, chaîne de NBC Universal...) a même récemment programmé un cycle dont un épisode s’intitulait « L’école du crime », soit une plongée dans la délinquance des jeunes abordée par des étudiants en criminologie de l’Université de Montréal. Si ce thème intéresse au plus haut degré le monde judiciaire et les criminologues en particulier, c’est parce qu’il touche de nombreux points de la vie sociétale : relations familiales, de voisinage, scolaires..., toxicomanie, bandes urbaines, armes, prostitution, « tournantes », alcoolisme, vols avec violences... De plus, chaque parent n’est pas à l’abri d’un enfant qui « dévie » du « droit chemin » et ce, même, dans ce qu’il est convenu d’appeler les « bonnes familles ». Comment et pourquoi certains jeunes peuvent-ils devenir de dangereux délinquants, voire des criminels ?

Crime Madness and Politics in Modern France
Robert A. Nye places in historical context a medical concept of deviance that developed in France in the last half of the nineteenth century, when medical models of cultural crisis linked thinking about crime, mental illness, prostitution, alcoholism, suicide, and other pathologies to French national decline. Originally published in 1984. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Personal Reminiscences of a Great Crusade
Josephine Butler (1828-1906) was a prominent English feminist who was best known for her controversial campaigns concerning the welfare and civil rights of prostitutes. In 1869 she became the leader of the movement to limit the extension of the Contagious Diseases Acts, and was instrumental in having the Acts repealed in 1886. She later became involved in campaigns to stop child trafficking and child prostitution, which led to the age of consent being raised to 16 from 13 in 1885. This volume, first published in 1893, contains Butler's memoirs of her many campaigns. Focusing on the years 1869-1880, Butler explains the political background to the Contagious Diseases Acts, describes the moral and political opposition to the legislation, explores the ideology of the repeal campaign and describes her role.

Why Nations Fail
Brilliant and engagingly written, Why Nations Fail answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine? Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are? Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive or destiny. Otherwise, how to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence? Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, to take just one of their fascinating examples, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. The south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities. The economic success thus spurred was sustained because the government became accountable and responsive to citizens and the great mass of people. Sadly, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutions—with no end in sight. The differences between the Koreas is due to the politics that created these completely different institutional trajectories. Based on fifteen years of original research Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including: - China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed and overwhelm the West? - Are America’s best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority? - What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson’s breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions? Why Nations Fail will change the way you look at—and understand—the world.
Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
Force, unregulated or ill-regulated, is not only wasted in the void, like that of gunpowder burned in the open air, and steam unconfined by science; but, striking in the dark, and its blows meeting only the air, they recoil and bruise itself. It is destruction and ruin. It is the volcano, the earthquake, the cyclone;—not growth and progress. It is Polyphemus blinded, striking at random, and falling headlong among the sharp rocks by the impetus of his own blows. The blind Force of the people is a Force that must be economized, and also managed, as the blind Force of steam, lifting the ponderous iron arms and turning the large wheels, is made to bore and rifle the cannon and to weave the most delicate lace. It must be regulated by Intellect. Intellect is to the people and the people's Force, what the slender needle of the compass is to the ship—its soul, always counselling the huge mass of wood and iron, and always pointing to the north.
From Kem Nunn, the National Book Award-nominated author of Tapping the Source and The Dogs of Winter, comes an exquisitely written tale of loss and redemption. Nunn renders the dangerous beaches and waters of California's borderland as only the critically acclaimed poet laureate of surf noir can, and Tijuana Straits confirms his reputation as a master of suspense and a novelist of the first rank. When Fahey, once a great surfer, now a reclusive ex-con, meets Magdalena, she is running from a pack of wild dogs along the ragged wasteland where California and Mexico meet the Pacific Ocean -- a spot once known to the men who rode its giant waves as the Tijuana Straits. Magdalena has barely survived an attack that forced her to flee Tijuana, and Fahey takes her in. That he is willing to do so runs contrary to his every instinct, for Fahey is done with the world, seeking little more than solitude from this all-but-forgotten corner of the Golden State. Nor is Fahey a stranger to the lawless ways of the border. He worries that in sheltering this woman he may not only be inviting further entanglements but may be placing them both at risk. In this, he is not wrong. An environmental activist, Magdalena has become engaged in the struggle for the health and rights of the thousands of peasants streaming from Mexico's enervated heartland to work in the maquilladoras -- the foreign-owned factories that line her country's border, polluting its air and fouling its rivers. It is a risky contest. Danger can come from many directions, from government officials paid to preserve the status quo to thugs hired to intimidate reformers. As Magdalena and Fahey become closer, Magdalena tries to discover who is out to get her, attempting to reconstruct the events that delivered her, battered and confused, into Fahey's strange yet oddly seductive world. She examines every lead, never guessing the truth. For into this no-man's-land between two countries comes a trio of killers led by Armando Santoya, a man beset by personal tragedy, an aberration born of the very conditions Magdalena has dedicated her life to fight against, yet who in the throes of his own drug-fueled confusions has marked her for death. And so will Fahey be put to the test, in a final duel on the beaches of his Tijuana Straits.
