« On ne le dira jamais assez, tous les parlementaires ne sont pas pourris. C’est même une minorité d’entre eux, mais force est de constater qu’ils profitent d’une mansuétude complice de la majorité de leurs collègues. » Philippe Pascot a côtoyé les élus de tout bord pendant près de 25 ans. Il recense dans cet ouvrage les abus légaux dans lesquels tombe la classe politique française : salaire exorbitant, exonération d’impôts, retraite douillette, cumuls, emplois fictifs, déclarations d’intérêts et d’activités bidons et tant d’autres petits arrangements entre amis. Derrière une volonté affichée de transparence et de « moralisation » de la sphère politique, nos élus entretiennent leurs propres intérêts au travers de lois de plus en plus incompréhensibles, quand nous, simples citoyens, devons nous serrer la ceinture. Sans parti pris, l’auteur rend compte de ce pillage d’État et du système qui le permet. Adjoint au maire d’Évry Manuel Valls, ancien conseiller régional, chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, Philippe Pascot milite pour une réelle transparence de l’exercice politique. Il est l’auteur avec Graziella Riou Harchaoui de Délits D’élus, tome 1, 400 politiques aux prises avec la justice (Max Milo, 2014).

« Plus tu es truand en politique, plus c’est facile d’être réélu. » « Les politiques se comportent en propriétaires, alors qu’ils ne sont que nos locataires. » « Une grosse minorité des élu(e)s est pourrie mais une grosse majorité laisse faire. » Philippe Pascot milite pour une transparence totale de l’exercice politique et tente de débusquer l’opacité organisée du fonctionnement d’une minorité dominante (tous partis confondus) qui ternit l’ensemble de la classe politique. Une de ses premières victoires est la loi votée à l’unanimité à l’Assemblée nationale le 1er février 2017. Cette loi, obtenue de haute lutte grâce à une pétition ayant réuni 150 000 signataires et un lobbying intense, oblige les politiques à posséder un casier vierge pour se présenter à une élection. Après le succès de Pilleurs d’État (100 000 exemplaires vendus), Philippe Pascot propose dans ce tome 2, des solutions simples et de bon sens qu’il faudra bien imposer de gré ou de force à nos élus si l’on veut que notre république reste une démocratie. Adjoint au maire d’Évry Manuel Valls, Philippe Pascot a été conseiller municipal, conseiller régional, président de la commission formation professionnelle et apprentissage d’ Île-de-France. Il est chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.

Dans un usage métaphorique l’expression "Du goudron et des plumes" évoque l'indignation ou provoque la vindicte publique. C’est sans nul doute ce qu’inspire le deuxième tome des Délits d’élus de Philippe Pascot. Condamnés pour trafic d’influence, impliqués dans des affaires de mœurs, pour avoir truqué des marchés publics ou confondu leur compte en banque avec celui de la collectivité qu’ils administrent... Le comportement des 600 élus concernés dans cette enquête exigeante, témoigne d’un coté sombre de notre vie citoyenne et nous alerte sur le manquement de plus en plus choquant d’une partie de nos élus, à incarner le devoir de probité et d’exemplarité indispensable à notre vie démocratique. Au delà de ce constat, Philippe Pascot propose des pistes pertinentes contre ce fléau et encourage chacun de nous à plus de vigilence « Le bottin mondain des élus condamnés : un inventaire à la Prévert des déboires de la classe politique française. » LE POINT « Tous pourris nos élus? Une enquête qui vient contredire un certain nombre d’idées reçues sur la probité de nos élus locaux. » LE FIGARO « De quoi s’interroger sur le système politique français ; pour la plupart de ces condamnés, ils sont encore aux manettes ! » SLATE.FR « Une enquête particulièrement utile dans notre démocratie éléctive et remarquable d’exhaustivité ! » POLITIQUE MAGAZINE Maire adjoint d’Évry puis conseiller municipal, ancien conseiller régional, chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, Philippe Pascot a vingt cinq ans de vie politique derrière lui et connaît la plupart des élus de premier plan. Il est l’auteur aux Éditions Max Milo de Délits d’élus - Tome 1 et Pilleurs d’état. Il milite pour une réelle transparence de l’exercice politique et est engagé dans divers combats de société.

On 18 August 1572, Marguerite de Valois, sister of King Charles IX, was married in Paris to Henri de Navarre, "first prince of the blood" and a Protestant. This union, which was to cement the provisions of the Peace of St. Germain (1570) ending the third of the French wars of religion, was the occasion of an extraordinary influx of French Calvin ists into the notoriously Catholic capital. Hundreds of Huguenots had journeyed to Paris to honor their titular leader and participate in the wedding celebrations. Tensions were already running high when the court made the fatal decision to take advantage of the situation and assassinate the admiral of France, Gaspard de Coligny, the recognized leader of the Huguenot armies which had helped plunge the country into ten years of intermittent civil war, and who now threatened to embroil the kingdom in a full-scale foreign war with Spain. On Friday the twenty-second, as he returned from the Louvre to his lodgings, Coligny paused in the street - some say to receive a letter, others to doff his hat to an acquaintance or to adjust his hose - and was fired on by a hired assassin hidden in a house known to belong to one of the ultra-Catholic Guise faction. The arquebus shot missed its mark and succeeded only in wounding the admiral in his hand and arm, where upon he was carried by his followers to his bed.

The story of a man who survived Treblinka, to be haunted by his memories for 50 years—and ultimately, to be killed by them More than 800,000 people entered Treblinka and fewer than 70 came out. Hershl Sperling was one of them. He escaped. Why then, 50 years later, did he jump to his death from a bridge in Scotland? The answer lies in a long-forgotten, published account of the Treblinka death camp, written by Hershl Sperling himself in the months after liberation, discovered in his briefcase after his suicide, and reproduced here for the first time. Including previously unpublished photographs, this book traces the life of a man who survived five concentration camps, and details what he had to do to achieve this. Hershl’s story, from his childhood in a small Polish town to the bridge in faraway Scotland, is testament to the lasting torment of those very few who survived the Nazis’ most efficient and gruesome death factory. The author personally follows in his subject’s footsteps from Klobuck, to Treblinka, to Glasgow.

This book studies the role of Christian churches in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Timothy Longman's research shows that Rwandan churches have consistently allied themselves with the state and engaged in ethnic politics, making them a center of struggle over power and resources. He argues that the genocide in Rwanda was a conservative response to progressive forces that were attempting to democratize Christian churches.

The Rwandan genocide has become a touchstone for debates about the causes of mass violence and the responsibilities of the international community. Yet a number of key questions about this tragedy remain unanswered: How did the violence spread from community to community and so rapidly engulf the nation? Why did individuals make decisions that led them to take up machetes against their neighbors? And what was the logic that drove the campaign of extermination? According to Scott Straus, a social scientist and former journalist in East Africa for several years (who received a Pulitzer Prize nomination for his reporting for the Houston Chronicle), many of the widely held beliefs about the causes and course of genocide in Rwanda are incomplete. They focus largely on the actions of the ruling elite or the inaction of the international community. Considerably less is known about how and why elite decisions became widespread exterminatory violence. Challenging the prevailing wisdom, Straus provides substantial new evidence about local patterns of violence, using original research-including the most comprehensive surveys yet undertaken among convicted perpetrators-to assess competing theories about the causes and dynamics of the genocide. Current interpretations stress three main causes for the genocide: ethnic identity, ideology, and mass-media indoctrination (in particular the influence of hate radio). Straus's research does not deny the importance of ethnicity, but he finds that it operated more as a background condition. Instead, Straus emphasizes fear and intra-ethnic intimidation as the primary drivers of the violence. A defensive civil war and the assassination of a president created a feeling of acute insecurity. Rwanda's unusually effective state was also central, as was the country's geography and population density, which limited the number of exit options for both victims and perpetrators. In conclusion, Straus steps back from the particulars of the Rwandan genocide to offer a new, dynamic model for understanding other instances of genocide in recent history-the Holocaust, Armenia, Cambodia, the Balkans-and assessing the future likelihood of such events.

This edited volume, based upon the first Williams Symposium on Classical Architecture, focuses on the theme of the well-appointed Roman country house. Using archaeological and textual evidence, the chapters address issues of villa composition, economy, and society. This fine volume also explores the possible reasons that Greeks did not embrace the villa lifestyle as the Romans so eagerly did. Finally, this book provides a promising foundation for future studies of the nature of the villa phenomenon. Symposium Series 9
Racisms in a Multicultural Canada

In acknowledging the possibility that as the world changes so too does racism, this book argues that racism is not disappearing, despite claims of living in a post-racial and multicultural world. To the contrary, racisms persist by transforming into different forms whose intent or effects remain the same: to deny and disallow as well as to exclude and exploit. Racisms in a Multicultural Canada is organized around the assumption that race is not simply a set of categories and that racism is not just a collection of individuals with bad attitudes. Rather, racism is as much a matter of interests as of attitudes, of property as of prejudice, of structural advantage as of personal failing, of whiteness as of the “other,” of discourse as of discrimination, and of unequal power relations as of bigotry. This multi-dimensionality of racism complicates the challenge of formulating anti-racism and anti-colonialist strategies capable of addressing it. Employing a critical framework that puts politics and power at the centre of analysis, this book focuses on why racisms proliferate, how they work in contemporary societies, and how the way we think and talk about racism changes over time. Specifically, it examines the working of contemporary racisms in a multicultural Canada that claims to abide by principles of multiculturalism and a commitment to a post-racial society.
