Il y a de ces choses dont on pense qu'elles sont immuables, éternelles. Les bouddhas d'Afghanistan, les forêts d'Amazonie, les tours du World Trade Center, les glaces de la banquise... Jusqu'au jour où l'on réalise qu'elles peuvent disparaître avec la même fragilité qu'un papillon éphémère et que le monde en sera changé à jamais. Le couple formé par Étienne et Valérie, c'était un peu cela. Le symbole d'un amour que rien ne peut détruire. Jusqu'au jour où... Lorsqu'après quinze ans de vie commune, le poids du temps qui passe devient insupportable, Étienne et Valérie se déchirent et se séparent. C'est la tempête dans leur entourage : amis, parents, enfants, chacun a son mot à dire. Si la naissance de l'amour a lieu dans l'intimité, une rupture est l'affaire de tous et chacun, à sa manière, veut y avoir sa place. Sous les yeux de leurs proches, Étienne et Valérie tentent de se reconstruire, chacun de leur côté.
À travers leurs souvenirs les plus torrides, nous revivons les quinze années de sexe et d'amour sur les décombres desquelles naîtra la suite de leur histoire. Une ultime quête de soi et de l'autre, qui vient clore la trilogie de La rééducation sentimentale. Servi par une écriture fine, précise et sensuelle, Un sentiment d'éternité confirme Emma Cavalier comme la romancière du sentiment amoureux.

But doors don't always stay closed. Just before the anniversary of Jules's death, things begin to fall apart.

Against a backdrop of war and anti-Catholic sentiment, one man loses his rights because he is falsely accused In this fascinating, detailed history, William Issel recounts the civil rights abuses suffered by Sylvester Andriano, an Italian American Catholic civil leader whose religious and political activism in San Francisco provoked an Anti-Catholic campaign against him. A leading figure in the Catholic Action movement, Andriano was falsely accused in state and federal Un-American Activities Committee hearings of having Fascist sympathies prior to and during World War II.
As his ordeal began, Andriano was subjected to a hostile investigation by the FBI, whose confidential informants were his political rivals. Furthermore, the U.S. Army ordered him to be relocated on the grounds that he was a security risk. For Both Cross and Flag provides a dramatic illustration of what can happen when parties to urban political rivalries, rooted in religious and ideological differences, seize the opportunity provided by a wartime national security emergency to demonize their enemy as OC a potentially dangerous person.OCO Issel presents a cast of characters that includes archbishops, radicals, the Kremlin, and J. Edgar Hoover, to examine the significant role faith-based political activism played in the political culture that violated AndrianoOCOs constitutional rights. Exploring the ramifications of this story, For Both Cross and Flag presents interesting implications for contemporary events and issues relating to urban politics, ethnic groups, and religion in a time of war.

This is a rare chance to re-discover a contemporary account of a military conflict which took place a Century ago. "The Agony of Belgium", written in 1914 by Frank Fox, a war correspondent veteran of the Balkan Wars, precedes the trench warfare of the Great War. It recounts events that the modern European mind would probably wish to forget. The bravery and resilience of the relatively new and untested Belgian Army, following the rejection of the German Ultimatum by the King, deserves a wider audience. Throughout this account the courageous and noble qualities of King Albert in the dark days come to the fore. Whether at the Front as an active Commander-in-Chief; with his people during Zeppelin raids and artillery bombardments at Antwerp; declining refuge in France after the retreat from Ostend; or rallying his troops for rearguard actions his conduct was of the finest. For these first 4 months of WW1, Fox used a bicycle to travel extensively (up to 75 miles/day- including an escape from Brussels over the border to Holland) to the various fronts admiring the determination of "our" Army against insuperable odds, and lamenting the miseries heaped upon the populace. His account of the "frightfulness" of the events in Louvain against the civilian population- including women and children- and the sacking of cultural treasures was not at first believed by Officials in Antwerp. However his reporting of Zeppelin raids helped to arouse public opinion in the United States. Having been turned over as a spy by civilians to the French cavalry, he prevailed to produce a unique insight into the ebb and flow of the campaign. From reporting the use of civilians as human shields at Alost, to suffering the effects of the final bombardment of Antwerp from which he escaped by boat, and the turning of the tide after the battle of the Yser, Fox provides vivid descriptions of a terrible, and little known, conflict. "A harrowing account of the suffering that Belgium endured from the German invasion in 1914. Sir Frank Fox charts Belgium's heroic stand, and the personal courage of King Albert I that inspired his Army." LORD ASTOR of HEVER - British Defence Minister "As a Belgian citizen, who has lived in two of the martyr-towns, Leuven and Aarschot, I was stunned by this powerful account of the atrocities of war. Fox's reports undoubtedly contributed to the British support of our valiant King Albert I and his Army". Dr. LUDO SCHELLENS - Kasteel Schoonhoven, Aarschot
