L'Accord économique et commercial global (AECG) marque un tournant dans les relations entre le Canada et l'Union européenne. Les négociations ont été longues, parfois difficiles, mais les deux parties en sont finalement parvenues à une entente, officialisée à Ottawa le 26 septembre 2014. Depuis, le processus de ratification suit son cours, et tout indique qu'il sera long et complexe.Malgré les interrogations et les incertitudes qui demeurent au sujet de l'AECG, notamment sur sa mise en œuvre, cet accord est à n'en pas douter ambitieux et pionnier. Par son contenu, sa portée et ses dispositions réglementaires, il va non seulement favoriser les échanges, les affaires et la circulation des personnes entre les deux rives de l'Atlantique, mais également rapprocher, pour la première fois, le modèle économique de type contractuel de l'Accord de libre-échange nord-américain (ALENA) du modèle de type communautaire de l'Union européenne.Le présent ouvrage retrace l'historique des négociations et met en lumière les nombreux obstacles qui ont dû être surmontés pour en arriver à un accord, mais aussi ceux qui vont se dresser jusqu'à sa ratification et sa mise en œuvre. Il présente le contenu et les principales dispositions de l'AECG, ce qui fait son originalité et ce qui le distingue de l'ALENA. Enfin, il ouvre la discussion sur les nouveaux accords dits de troisième génération qui, comme l'AECG, visent l'inter-connexion économique et introduisent à cet effet des mécanismes de coopération réglementaire d'un type nouveau.

WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD IN NONFICTION Americans like to insist that we are living in a postracial, color-blind society. In fact, racist thought is alive and well; it has simply become more sophisticated and more insidious. And as award-winning historian Ibram X. Kendi argues in Stamped from the Beginning, racist ideas in this country have a long and lingering history, one in which nearly every great American thinker is complicit. In this deeply researched and fast-moving narrative, Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the lives of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W. E. B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America. As Kendi provocatively illustrates, racist thinking did not arise from ignorance or hatred. Racist ideas were created and popularized in an effort to defend deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and to rationalize the nation's racial inequities in everything from wealth to health. While racist ideas are easily produced and easily consumed, they can also be discredited. In shedding much-needed light on the murky history of racist ideas, Stamped from the Beginning offers us the tools we need to expose them-and in the process, gives us reason to hope.

WHO IS VERNON SUBUTEX? An urban legend. A fall from grace. The mirror who reflects us all. Vernon Subutex was once the proprietor of Revolver, an infamous music shop in Bastille. His legend spread throughout Paris. But by the 2000s his shop is struggling. With his savings gone, his unemployment benefit cut, and the friend who had been covering his rent suddenly dead, Vernon Subutex finds himself down and out on the Paris streets. He has one final card up his sleeve. Even as he holds out his hand to beg for the first time, a throwaway comment he once made on Facebook is taking the internet by storm. Vernon does not realise this, but the word is out: Vernon Subutex has in his possession the last filmed recordings of Alex Bleach, the famous musician and Vernon's benefactor, who has only just died of a drug overdose. A crowd of people from record producers to online trolls and porn stars are now on Vernon's trail. Translated from the French by Frank Wynne
