Introduction to Nordic Cultures by Annika Lindskog,Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen Summary

Introduction to Nordic Cultures is an innovative, interdisciplinary introduction to Nordic history, cultures and societies from medieval times to today. The textbook spans the whole Nordic region, covering historical periods from the Viking Age to modern society, and engages with a range of subjects: from runic inscriptions on iron rings and stone monuments, via eighteenth-century scientists, Ibsen’s dramas and turn-of-the-century travel, to twentieth-century health films and the welfare state, nature ideology, Greenlandic literature, Nordic Noir, migration, ‘new’ Scandinavians, and stereotypes of the Nordic. The chapters provide fundamental knowledge and insights into the history and structures of Nordic societies, while constructing critical analyses around specific case studies that help build an informed picture of how societies grow and of the interplay between history, politics, culture, geography and people. Introduction to Nordic Cultures is a tool for understanding issues related to the Nordic region as a whole, offering the reader engaging and stimulating ways of discovering a variety of cultural expressions, historical developments and local preoccupations. The textbook is a valuable resource for undergraduate students of Scandinavian and Nordic studies, as well as students of European history, culture, literature and linguistics.

Mapping Tokyo in Fiction and Film by Barbara E. Thornbury Summary

Mapping Tokyo in Fiction and Film explores ways that late 20th- and early 21st- century fiction and film from Japan literally and figuratively map Tokyo. The four dozen novels, stories, and films discussed here describe, define, and reflect on Tokyo urban space. They are part of the flow of Japanese-language texts being translated (or, in the case of film, subtitled) into English. Circulation in professionally translated and subtitled English-language versions helps ensure accessibility to the primarily anglophone readers of this study—and helps validate inclusion in lists of world literature and film. Tokyo’s well-established culture of mapping signifies much more than a profound attachment to place or an affinity for maps as artifacts. It is, importantly, a counter-response to feelings of insecurity and disconnection—insofar as the mapping process helps impart a sense of predictability, stability, and placeness in the real and imagined city.

Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead,Serge Chauvin Summary

Cora, seize ans, est esclave sur une plantation de coton dans la Géorgie d'avant la guerre de Sécession. Abandonnée par sa mère lorsqu'elle était enfant, elle survit tant bien que mal à la violence de sa condition. Lorsque Caesar, un esclave récemment arrivé de Virginie, lui propose de s'enfuir, elle accepte et tente, au péril de sa vie, de gagner avec lui les états libres du Nord. De la Caroline du Sud à l'Indiana en passant par le Tennessee, Cora va vivre une incroyable odyssée. Traquée comme une bête par un impitoyable chasseur d'esclaves qui l'oblige à fuir, sans cesse, le « misérable coeur palpitant » des villes, elle fera tout pour conquérir sa liberté. L'une des prouesses de Colson Whitehead est de matérialiser l'« Underground Railroad », le célèbre réseau clandestin d'aide aux esclaves en fuite qui devient ici une véritable voie ferrée souterraine, pour explorer, avec une originalité et une maîtrise époustouflantes, les fondements et la mécanique du racisme. à la fois récit d'un combat poignant et réflexion saisissante sur la lecture de l'Histoire, ce roman, couronné par le prix Pulitzer, est une oeuvre politique aujourd'hui plus que jamais nécessaire. « Un roman puissant et presque hallucinatoire. Une histoire essentielle pour comprendre les Américains d'hier et d'aujourd'hui. » The New York Times

Pourquoi l'égalité est meilleure pour tous by Richard Wilkinson,Kate Pickett Summary

Pourquoi les Japonais vivent-ils plus longtemps que les Américains ? Pourquoi y a-t-il plus de grossesses chez les adolescentes aux États-Unis qu'en France ? Pourquoi les Suédois ont-ils la taille plus fine que les Grecs ? La réponse est chaque fois : l'inégalité. État de santé, espérance de vie, obésité, santé mentale, taux d'incarcération ou d'homicide, toxicomanie, grossesses précoces, succès ou échecs scolaires, bilan carbone et recyclage des déchets, tous les chiffres vont dans le même sens : l'inégalité des revenus nuit de manière flagrante au bien-être de tous. Conclusion des auteurs : " Ce n'est pas la richesse qui fait le bonheur des sociétés, mais l'égalité des conditions. "

Le Voyage du Pèlerin (texte intégral de 1773) by John Bunyan Summary

Le Voyage du pèlerin (The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come en anglais) est un roman de John Bunyan, publié en 1678 et traduit depuis dans plus de deux cents langues différentes. Le récit rapporte les aventures de Christian (mot signifiant aussi "chrétien" en anglais), un homme ordinaire tâchant de se frayer un chemin depuis la "Cité de la destruction" jusqu'à la "Cité céleste" de Sion. De Manière allégorique, John Bunyan présente dans cet ouvrage le voyage du chrétien ordinaire vers l'éternité bienheureuse, les progrès et l'heureuse fin d'une modeste âme chrétienne qui cherche simplement Dieu en Jésus-Christ. Cet ouvrage de Bunyan reflète la simplicité et la spontanéité de la vie de chaque chrétien. Et c'est parce qu'il incarne justement la pensée qui guide le pélerin, la vérité qui motive son cheminement, que le lecteur de cet ouvrage a le sentiment d'avoir été initié par sa lecture à une vie qui ne peut être autre que vie de chaque chrétien. Le Voyage du pèlerin devient ainsi un modèle à suivre pour l'exercice de la foi de tous les jours. Cet ouvrage magistral est à ce jour, après la Bible, l'un des ouvrages chrétiens les plus vendu au monde.
