Un feu sur l'abîme by Vernor VINGE Summary

Une expédition Straumli, explorant une Archive dans la presque Transcendance, a déchaîné une Perversion sur la Galaxie entière. Un unique navire est parvenu à fuir dans la nuit épouvantable. À travers l'espace, il fonce vers le centre de la Galaxie, vers la Lenteur où l'on ne peut pas dépasser la vitesse de la lumière, où les systèmes informatiques les plus performants, et même les si lentes intelligences biologiques, subissent une perte de leurs facultés. Il cherche un monde où se poser. Joanna et Jeffri, les deux seuls survivants de l'expédition Straumli, portent sans le savoir la responsabilité du salut de millions de civilisations. Dont certaines sont bien plus anciennes que l'humanité. Joanna et Jeffri sont des enfants, abandonnés à eux-mêmes sur un monde médiéval dont les conflits et les cruautés ne le cèdent en rien à ceux de la Galaxie. Et ceux qui voudraient les aider, et sauver du même coup la Galaxie civilisée, Ravna l'humaine, le Cavalier des Skrodes, et Pham, qui n'est peut-être qu'une extension d'une Puissance, se trouvent encore à des milliers d'années-lumière... Un feu sur l'abîme a obtenu le prix Hugo. " Vernor Vinge à son tour réinvente le genre. Son message : le space-opera n'a d'autre but que de divertir le lecteur. On ne peut que rester béat d'admiration devant le résultat. " Bernard Boulier, Bifrost.

Deep Beauty: Experiencing Wonder When the World Is On Fire by Rosemary Winslow,Catherine Lee Summary

As our global discourse continues to be dominated by border walls, white nationalism, sexual assault, and autocratic leaders, many of us find our basic human values under constant attack. DEEP BEAUTY is one collective attempt to counteract this discourse. The essays presented herein offer curious and thoughtful inquiries into experiences of wonder and beauty through the eyes of a diverse group of beholders, at a time when such considerations are often lacking from public discourse. These writers help create an emotional and psychological space for us to meditate on how peace, safety, compassion, and dignity are integral to a fulfilled and fulfilling life. These essays examine beauty from a number of different perspectives, including the arts, culture and counter-culture, the physical world (from our individual bodies to our embattled planet), successes and failures, remoteness, and spirituality. This collection is perfect for students of writing and philosophy--and for anybody who needs a moment of respite from the chaos exploding in the world around us.

A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge Summary

Thousands of years hence, many races inhabit a universe where a mind's potential is determined by its location in space - from superintelligent entities in the Transcend, to the limited minds of the Unthinking Depths, where only simple creatures and technology can function.

Fleeing the threat, a family of scientists, including two children, are taken captive by the Tines - an alien race with a harsh medieval culture - and used as pawns in a ruthless power struggle. A rescue party, not entirely composed of humans, must free the children - and retrieve a secret that may save the rest of interstellar civilization.

Deep-rooted Conflict and the IRA Cease-fire by John P. Dunnigan Summary

Using the situation in Northern Ireland as a reference point, this book explores two disparate methods of interpreting and attempting to deal with deep-rooted and protracted ethnic conflict. The traditional method; which relies on the ideas of power, coercion, and 'arm twisting, ' is the first to be explored and is primarily concerned with managing such conflict. The more radical human needs approach, which believes deep-rooted conflict can be resolved rather than merely managed, is also explored. The conflict in the North of Ireland epitomizes the definition of deep-rooted and protracted ethnic conflict put forward by the human needs approach. Dunnigan examines many facets of the conflict and uses the current peace processes to promote the idea that it is possible to resolve such long-standing conflicts. Contents: Defining the Causes of Conflict; Differing Views of Terrorism and Ethnic Conflict; Identifying the Problem; Looking Toward Resolution; The Two Concepts; Approaching the Conflict; The Dimension of the North; The Value of Violence; Cease-fire; The Beginning; IRA Statement Announcing Cease-fire Headlines; The Joint Declaration; British Reply to Sinn Fein Request for Clarification

World On Fire by Amy Chua Summary

Amy Chua's remarkable and provocative book explores the tensions of the post-Cold War globalising world. As global markets open, ethnic conflict worsens and democracy in developing nations can turn ugly and violent. Chua shows how free markets have concentrated disproportionate, often spectacular wealth in the hands of resented ethnic minorities - 'market-dominant minorities'. Adding democracy to this volatile mix can unleash suppressed ethnic hatred and bring to power 'ethno-nationalist' governments that pursue aggressive policies of confiscation and revenge. Chua also shows how individual countries may be viewed as market-dominant minorities, a fact that could help to explain the rising tide of anti-American sentiment around the world and the visceral hatred of Americans expressed in recent acts of terrorism. Chua is not an anti-globalist. But in this must-read bestselling book she presciently warns that, far from making the world a better and safer place, democracy and capitalism - at least in the raw, unrestrained form in which they are currently being exported - are intensifying ethnic resentment and global violence, with potentially catastrophic results.

World of Fire by James Lovegrove Summary

WORLD OF FIRE! Dev Harmer, reluctant agent of Interstellar Security Solutions, wakes up in a newly cloned host body on the planet Alighieri, ready for action.An infernal world, so close to its sun that its surface is regularly baked to 1,000°C, hot enough to turn rock to lava. But deep underground there are networks of tunnels connecting colonies of miners who dig for the precious Helium-3. Polis+, the AI race who are humankind’s great galactic rivals, want to claim the planet’s mineral wealth for their own. All that stands between them and this goal is Dev. But as well as Polis+’s agents, there are giant moleworms to contend with, and a spate of mysterious earthquakes, and the perils of the surface where a man can be burned to cinders if he gets caught unprotected on the day side... “The story zooms along at a rip-roaring pace, told in an irreverent tone that perfectly matches the character of our hero. Planet Alighieri is rendered in such believable detail that I almost got a sweat on when Harmer got into trouble on the surface. Lovegrove has got things off to a brilliant start here.”– SF Crow’s Nest on World of Fire “I read this on holiday and it was perfect for kicking back, a throwback to the likes of Dumarest and James Bond. ****”– Theaker’s Quarterly on World of Fire

The World Is on Fire by Joni Tevis Summary

The sermons of Joni Tevis’ youth filled her with dread, a sense “that an even worse story—one you hadn’t read yet—could likewise come true.” In this revelatory collection, she reckons with her childhood fears by exploring the uniquely American fascination with apocalypse. From a haunted widow’s wildly expanding mansion, to atomic test sites in the Nevada desert, her settings are often places of destruction and loss. And yet Tevis transforms these eerie destinations into sites of creation as well, uncovering powerful points of connection. Whether she’s relating her experience of motherhood or describing the timbre of Freddy Mercury’s voice in “Somebody to Love,” she relies on the same reverence for detail, the same sense of awe. And by anchoring her attention to the raw materials of our world—nails and beams, dirt and stone, bones and blood—she discovers grandeur in the seemingly mundane. Possessed throughout with eclectic intelligence and extraordinary lyricism, these essays illuminate curiosities and momentous events with the same singular light.

Bloodwork by Nathan Redman Summary

A Jesuit poet once wrote, "If my God is a God of Light ? it is a Dark Light." Blood Work consists of unconventional and highly personal poems in the spirit of William Blake and Charles Williams. Their unitive theme is the Metaphysical Poets' unique conceptualization of the human soul as having blood. Subjects range from transcendent beauty and apotheosis to intense personal agony and frustrated creativity. Though varied, these heavily allusive and strangely imagist pieces attempt to convey ? as Donne did masterfully in his Holy Sonnet XIV ? that Love can suffer the worst violence, and be, itself, the most violent force of transformation. Blood Work is the humble first offering of Nathan Redman, a young person whose primary pursuit in life is to be a man of Christian integrity. His secondary pursuit is to write poetry that might in some way "open a door of speech to speak the Mystery of Christ" (Col. 4:3).

Deep Cover by Brian Garfield Summary

A Soviet spymaster launches an audacious plan against the American military The KGB calls it Amergrad. Buried deep in Siberia, just a few hundred miles from the Chinese border, it’s the most tightly guarded secret in the Soviet Union. Away from the frigid tundra, behind wall after wall of barbed-wire fence, is a perfectly ordinary small American city. It has gas stations, diners, movie theaters, and more cars than all of Leningrad. The residents speak English at all times, observing every custom of American life until it becomes second nature. When they graduate, they move to Tucson. Two decades later, Tucson is the center of the American military-industrial complex, and graduates of Amergrad are in positions of power at every level. These perfect Soviet spies hold the keys to the American nuclear array, and their mission is about to begin.
