The European Illustrated Press and the Emergence of a Transnational Visual Culture of the News, 1842-1870 by Thomas Smits Book Resume:

This book looks at the roots of a global visual news culture: the trade in illustrations of the news between European illustrated newspapers in the mid-nineteenth century. In the age of nationalism, we might suspect these publications to be filled with nationally produced content, supporting a national imagined community. However, the large-scale transnational trade in illustrations, which this book uncovers, points out that nineteenth-century news consumers already looked at the same world. By exchanging images, European illustrated newspapers provided them with a shared, transnational, experience.

Thomas Hardy's Short Stories by Juliette Berning Schaefer,Siobhan Craft Brownson Book Resume:

Thomas Hardy penned nearly fifty short stories, but in spite of this impressive number, his contributions to the genre have been relatively understudied. Bringing together an international group of scholars, this is the first edited collection devoted solely to Hardy's works of short fiction. The contributors take up topics related to their publication in periodicals, gender and community relationships, and narrative techniques. Taken together, the essays show that Hardy's short stories are important, not only for what they tell us about Hardy as a writer who straddles the divide between the traditionalist and the modernist, but also for how they reflect and inform the period in which he wrote.

Souvenirs from the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria by Richard and Susan Wales Book Resume:

A flavour of this book ... This small disk is called Carmichael’s Amulet and it commemorates the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria by the dates 1837 and 1897. These are the dates of her 60 years reign. To the right can be seen a mould that is carved from wood. It seems to have been professionally made in a large block that is well finished and furnished with a hook for hanging up. The mould may have produced butter pats or terrines for a Victorian celebration. As well as the Diamond Jubilee dates it commemorates the Record Reign that Queen Victoria had achieved in 1896 after being monarch for longer than George III. These images were taken by the authors as this book was being written and so they do not appear in the text which summarises an enormous variety of Diamond Jubilee souvenirs. Inside you will find a unique view of Victoriana that was made to celebrate one event at the height of the powers of the British Empire. The souvenirs will give you a glimpse into Victorian creative ingenuity as well as the thinking and beliefs of people in 1897.

La Chose by Gilbert Keith Chesterton Book Resume:

La Chose, c’est l’Église catholique, « poursuivie, d’époque en époque, par une haine déraisonnable qui change perpé¬tuellement de raison », et à laquelle Gilbert Keith Chesterton se convertit en 1922. Dans ce livre polémique, publié en 1929 et inédit en français à ce jour, Chesterton entreprend d’expliquer les raisons de cette conversion, tout en ferraillant notamment contre les adorateurs de l’humanisme auquel l’époque commence de vouer un culte. « Il y a trois cents millions de personnes dans le monde qui acceptent les mystères que j’accepte et qui vivent confor¬mément à la foi qui est la mienne. Je veux vraiment savoir si l’on peut compter qu’il y ait un jour trois cents millions d’humanistes dans toute l’humanité. L’optimiste peut bien dire que l’humanisme sera la religion de la nouvelle génération, tout comme Auguste Comte a dit que l’Humanité serait le Dieu de la nouvelle génération ; et, en un sens, elle l’a été. Mais ce n’est plus le Dieu de la présente génération. Et la question est de savoir ce que sera la religion de la nouvelle génération après ça, ou de toutes les autres générations (comme il a été dit dans une certaine promesse d’autrefois) jusqu’à la fin du monde. »

Liberté d'expression et internet by Wolfgang Benedek,Matthias C. Kettemann Book Resume:

L’expansion d’internet a engendré une croissance exponentielle des possibilités de s’exprimer, mais elle a aussi multiplié les dangers qui menacent la liberté d’expression. Du Printemps arabe au mouvement mondial Occupy, la liberté d’expression sur internet a une profonde incidence sur des débats décisifs pour notre avenir. Parallèlement, les États sont de plus en plus nombreux à recourir à internet pour espionner des journalistes et des citoyens journalistes, poursuivre et emprisonner des blogueurs, et exercer une censure en ligne. Cet ouvrage répond à des questions essentielles concernant la portée et les limites de la liberté d’expression en ligne. Il cherche à porter un éclairage sur un paysage souvent obscur : qu’avons-nous le droit de dire en ligne ? Comment sont protégés nos idées et le processus de diffusion et de réception des informations ? Il expose le large éventail des droits protégés par la liberté d’expression, dont la liberté des médias et le droit d’accéder à des informations par le biais d’internet. Il souligne aussi l’importance des initiatives d’organisations internationales et non gouvernementales visant à définir des règles, et à assurer leur suivi et leur promotion. Un chapitre consacré aux pratiques nationales rapporte les réactions de différents pays confrontés à la difficulté d’assurer la liberté d’expression pour tous à l’ère d’internet. Alors que la Toile occupe de plus en plus de place dans notre quotidien, ce livre est une ressource précieuse pour comprendre les droits et les obligations de chaque acteur d’internet : États, entreprises et société civile.

Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell Book Resume:

Roman traduit de l’anglais, préfacé et annoté par : Françoise du Sorbier L’essentiel de l’action se situe en 1839, sur fond de grève des ouvriers des filatures, durement éprouvés par la misère et la maladie. Mary Barton, apprentie couturière, vit seule avec son père, ouvrier des filatures et syndicaliste aux positions radicales. Courtisée à la fois par Jem Wilson, le fils de l’ami de son père, qui souhaite l’épouser, et par Harry Carson, le fils du patron des filatures, elle rejette le premier avant de découvrir les mauvaises intentions du second à son égard. Lorsque Harry Carson est abattu par balle, tout désigne Jem comme le coupable. Mary se démène pour prouver son innocence. Premier roman d’Elizabeth Gaskell, écrit en 1848, Mary Barton suscita une controverse à sa publication à cause de sa représentation sans concessions du monde des ouvriers dans une ville industrielle, Manchester. Le récit, qui tisse plusieurs fils narratifs, est aussi un « roman d’éducation » : il offre une étude très fine, et dépourvue de mièvrerie, de la confusion des sentiments chez une toute jeune fille, tout en maintenant un suspense qui entraîne le lecteur dans une course contre la montre extrêmement tendue.
