Le djihad histoire secr te des hommes et des r seaux en Europe
Les attentats du 11 septembre 2001 avaient stupéfié et horrifié le monde. Celui de Madrid, le 11 mars 2004, a brutalement mis au jour la menace qui pèse sur l'Europe, mais qu'elle refuse trop souvent de voir. Pour les islamistes radicaux, il n'y a pas de sanctuaire. Le terrorisme, global de ce nouveau millénaire a pris des formes inédites. Une mouvance internationale, unie par la haine de l'Occident et de la démocratie, s'est formée autour d'Oussama Ben Laden. Malgré les interventions internationales en Afghanistan et en Irak, malgré des centaines d'arrestations et les dizaines de réseaux démantelés à travers le monde depuis 2001, la mouvance du djihâd est en pleine croissance. Quel est le profil type du djihadiste européen ? Comment est-il recruté et formé ? Quels liens tissent entre eux les différents groupes de la mouvance islamiste ? Comment s'implantent-ils en Europe et dans le monde ? De quelles complicités bénéficient-ils ? Quels sont leurs moyens financiers ? Quels attentats les islamistes préparent-ils ? Les menaces d'attaques majeures bio-bactériologiques, voire nucléaires, sont-elles crédibles ? À toutes ces interrogations Claude Moniquet apporte des réponses édifiantes, mais aussi inquiétantes, fondées sur plusieurs années d'enquêtes et des analyses inédites.
Trump the Complete Collection
Launched in January 1957 by Harvey Kurtzman and Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner, Trump partnered Kurtzman with many of his "usual gang of idiots" from his time at MAD - famous humor artists such as Jack Davis, Al Jaffee, and Wally Wood. They were joined by such dynamic humorists as Arnold Roth, comedians Mel Brooks and Doodles Weaver, and TV writer and novelist Max Shulman (creator of the character Dobie Gillis, who appeared in dozens of stories, a movie, and the popular TV series The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis). Though it lasted only two issues, this first effort after Kurtzman's historic split from MAD was the breeding ground for the magazines Humbug and Help! - and would ultimately lead to the more than thirty year run of Kurtzman and Will Elder's landmark character Little Annie Fanny in the pages of Playboy magazine.
This book tells the story of the making of the legendary film The Misfits (1961), directed by John Huston and starring Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift. As part of the promotional strategy for the film, The Magnum photographic agency was given the exclusive right to take photographs during the shooting. Eight of its most famous photographers covered the production, both on and off the set. Two hundred of their pictures are reproduced in The Misfits in rich duotone, providing both a fascinating documentary of the making of a film and an intimate portrait of three of the most famous film stars of all time. The photographs are accompanied by an essay recounting the tragic and triumphant story of the film and an interview with Arthur Miller, husband of Marilyn Monroe and writer of the movie.

The Triumph of Music
Once musicians such as Mozart were little more than court servants; now they are multimillionaire superstars wielding more power than politicians. How did this extraordinary change come about? Tim Blanning's brilliantly enjoyable book examines how everything from the cult of the romantic to technology and travel all fed the inexorable rise of music in the West, making it the most dominant and ubiquitous of the art forms. Encompassing balladeers, the great composers, jazz legends and rock gods, this is an enthralling story of power, patronage, creativity and genius.
