5.0 étoiles sur 5 Government by the (Real) People..., 1 juin 2014

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : A Fighting Chance (Format Kindle)
Elizabeth Warren writes about her life and the motivations that drove her decisions in clear, straightforward language. Though she has had a brilliant academic and political career, she reminds us that government actions are performed by people, people who have experiences with life and love and death, divorce, financial problems, difficult personal decisions. From the development of her expertise in bankruptcy which took decades of dedication to her concern for the related area of consumer protection, to corruption in the banks, then on to the multiple issues she must confront as a Senator, she has reminded us that what governments do touches the lives of real people. She further insists that making the lives of all citizens better should be the focus of all government actions. Too often, special interests have manipulated and lobbied our legislators and executives to act counter to that principle. Yet Warren remains a true believe and has demonstrated a remarkable stamina over decades to keep pushing for, as the title suggests, a "Fighting Chance." Along the way, she covers some of the major crises of recent years and offers common sense reasons why this is possible.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating take on an important epoch..., 2 janvier 2014
Achat vérifié(De quoi s'agit-il ?)
Reiss supplements extensive research with recently discovered archives to recount the life of a fascinating and little known figure. As he does so, he provides fascinating insights into the political and cultural climate before, during and after the French revolution, including the development of racism during this period. Hightly recommended !

Ms Williams uses her dazzling technic skills only for enhancing the music and never to distract attention from the composer's intentions. Just wonderful !

3.0 étoiles sur 5 What Happened to Goldman Sachs: An Insider's Story of Organizational Drift..., 2 janvier 2014
Achat vérifié(De quoi s'agit-il ?)
Mandis makes a good case for the application of organizational drift to the case of Goldman Sachs, and since he had worked there, he has insights into its day to day operations that are very informative. It's worth reading, but its academic style becomes a little heavy at times. More important, his insistence on 'academic neutrality', used as a justification for not making value judgments, is irritating when he discusses some of the excesses that made Goldmann one of the culprits in the recent meltdown.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pour ceux qui s'intéresse au croisement de l'histoire France - US, 29 novembre 2009
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Bagatelle (Poche)
J'avais lu Louisiane and Fausse Rivière par le même auteur and voulait competer le séries avec Bagatelle. C'est une excellent façon de revoir et apprendre l'histoire des Etats-Unis et sa relation avec la France. Denuzière remplit chaque volume avec beaucoup (des fois trop) de détails historique des premières années des Etats-Unis jusqu'au première guerre mondiale.
