La filière laitière est à un moment clef de son histoire. Après 50 ans d'encadrement par la PAC, les quotas laitiers ont disparu. Le pouvoir politique se désengage au profit d'un encadrement économique par le marché et " l'autorégulation ". Au détriment des éleveurs et des consommateurs. Les publicités préconisant la consommation de " trois produits laitiers par jour " nous le rappellent sans cesse : " Le lait, c'est la vie ". En réalité, le lait, c'est avant tout un vaste marché et des firmes qui en profitent. Avec la fin des quotas laitiers d'avril 2015, les industriels et leurs lobbyistes ont promis un avenir radieux aux éleveurs, qu'ils ont appelés à se regrouper en grandes fermes, pour investir et produire plus. La grande distribution et les multinationales du lait ont ainsi imposé leur modèle, l'exploitation intensive, sans se soucier des nuisances environnementales ni de voir disparaître 5 000 fermes françaises chaque année. Les géants français du lait (Lactalis, Bongrain, Danone, Bel ou Senoble), imités par les mastodontes de la coopération (Sodiaal, Agrial, Laïta), collectionnent les marques et impriment leurs méthodes sur la profession. L'une d'elles s'appelle " l'entente ". C'est le jeu secret des cartels constitués par les industriels pour se partager les marchés, décider des hausses de prix aux distributeurs, ou maintenir au plus bas le prix d'achat aux éleveurs, de plus en plus exsangues. Leur objectif : faire fi des petits producteurs et des consommateurs, comme des pouvoirs publics. En 2015, le prix du lait s'est finalement effondré sous l'effet de la surproduction et de " la volatilité " des cours mondiaux, entraînant grèves et blocages des travailleurs de l'agriculture. Les lobbyistes du lait, politiques, syndicalistes et industriels, rasent les murs. Le temps qu'une nouvelle vague d'éleveurs endettés mette la clef sous la porte, et que le lait reparte à la hausse. Le moment est peut-être venu de laisser les éleveurs et la société civile réinventer un modèle de développement plus équitable.

This publication contains thirty-five papers written by European historians in relation to five key periods in European history: the year of revolutions 1848, the Balkan wars of 1912-13, the search for peace in 1919, the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the Cold War in 1945, and the events of 1989-90 in central and eastern Europe. The papers are drawn from five conferences organised by the Council of Europe based on the principles of Recommendation Rec (2001) 15 on European history teaching. They consider events based on the concept of 'multiperspectivity' which seeks to facilitate an open approach to historical debate based on critical analysis of different perspectives of historical developments, often involving controversial and sensitive issues. This publication is complemented by two related titles: a teaching manual and a DVD of original documents.

From the author of 1491—the best-selling study of the pre-Columbian Americas—a deeply engaging new history of the most momentous biological event since the death of the dinosaurs. More than 200 million years ago, geological forces split apart the continents. Isolated from each other, the two halves of the world developed radically different suites of plants and animals. When Christopher Columbus set foot in the Americas, he ended that separation at a stroke. Driven by the economic goal of establishing trade with China, he accidentally set off an ecological convulsion as European vessels carried thousands of species to new homes across the oceans. The Columbian Exchange, as researchers call it, is the reason there are tomatoes in Italy, oranges in Florida, chocolates in Switzerland, and chili peppers in Thailand. More important, creatures the colonists knew nothing about hitched along for the ride. Earthworms, mosquitoes, and cockroaches; honeybees, dandelions, and African grasses; bacteria, fungi, and viruses; rats of every description—all of them rushed like eager tourists into lands that had never seen their like before, changing lives and landscapes across the planet. Eight decades after Columbus, a Spaniard named Legazpi succeeded where Columbus had failed. He sailed west to establish continual trade with China, then the richest, most powerful country in the world. In Manila, a city Legazpi founded, silver from the Americas, mined by African and Indian slaves, was sold to Asians in return for silk for Europeans. It was the first time that goods and people from every corner of the globe were connected in a single worldwide exchange. Much as Columbus created a new world biologically, Legazpi and the Spanish empire he served created a new world economically. As Charles C. Mann shows, the Columbian Exchange underlies much of subsequent human history. Presenting the latest research by ecologists, anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians, Mann shows how the creation of this worldwide network of ecological and economic exchange fostered the rise of Europe, devastated imperial China, convulsed Africa, and for two centuries made Mexico City—where Asia, Europe, and the new frontier of the Americas dynamically interacted—the center of the world. In such encounters, he uncovers the germ of today’s fiercest political disputes, from immigration to trade policy to culture wars. In 1493, Charles Mann gives us an eye-opening scientific interpretation of our past, unequaled in its authority and fascination. From the Hardcover edition.

Extrait: ...furent assujeties aux travaux les plus penibles, et en recueillirent le inoins de fruit; les hommes etendirent bientot jusqu'a elles cette meme idee de propriete qui venoit de les seduire et de les rassembler; de cela seul qu'elles etoient a leur convenance et qu'ils avoient pu s'en saisir, ils en conclurent qu'elles leur appartenoient: telle fut en general l'origine du droit. Les femmes manquant de forces ne purent deffendre et conserver leur existence civille; compagnes de nom, elles devinrent bientot esclaves de fait, et esclaves malheureuses; leur sort ne dut guere etre meilleur que celui des noirs de nos colonies. Si l'on veut retrouver encore des vestiges sensibles de cet abus de force, que l'on considere un moment ces peuples encore grossiers que nous nommons sauvages, qui, reunis depuis peu de temps, ont deja perdu les avantages de l'etat de nature et n'ont pu pallier encore les premiers vices de la societe. C'est la que l'on voit les femmes chargees seulles des travaux les plus vils et les plus penibles, toujours excedees, souvent maltraitees, quelquefois tuees par des maitres, oisifs et capricieux, qui payent ainsi les soins qu'elles prennent d'eux, les substances qu'elles leur fournissent, et le plaisir qu'elles leur procurent; c'est ainsi que nous les voions encore aujourd'huy ramer comme nos forcats, sur les canots des Groenlandois, et soumises au meme traitement; enfin, a 40 ans, chez les Calmouques, d'etre les compagnes de leurs maris, et devenir les servantes de la maison et des jeunes...

Mike Allen has put together a first class collection of horror and dark fantasy. UNSEAMING burns bright as hell among its peers. -Laird Barron, author of THE BEAUTIFUL THING THAT AWAITS US ALL Everyone in the world awakens covered in blood-and no one knows where the blood came from. A childhood doll arrives to tear its owner's reality limb from limb. A portal to the spirit realm stretches wide on the Appalachian Trail, and something more than human crawls through on eight legs. Words of comfort change to terrifying sounds as a force from outside time speaks through them. The buttons in the bin will unseam your flesh to bare your nastiest secrets. Opening with "The Button Bin," a finalist for the Nebula Award for Best Short Story, and culminating with its sequel, "The Quiltmaker," which Bram Stoker Award and Shirley Jackson Award winner Laird Barron has hailed as Mike Allen's masterpiece, this debut collection gathers fourteen horror tales that, in the words of Barron's introduction, "rival anything committed to paper by the likes of contemporary masters such as Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, or Caitlin Kiernan. This is raw, visceral, and sometimes bloody stuff. Primal stuff." More praise for UNSEAMING Throughout UNSEAMING, reality is usually in bad shape right from the start-and from there things proceed to go downhill. Such is the general background and trajectory of life in Mike Allen's fictional world. More could be said, of course, but there's one thing that I feel especially urged to say: these stories are FUN. Not "good" fun, and certainly not "good clean" fun. They are too unnerving for those modifiers, too serious, like laughter in the dark-unnerving, serious laughter that leads you through Mr. Allen's funhouse. The reality in there is also in bad shape, deliberately so, just for the seriously unnerving fun of it. The prose is poetic, except it's nonsense poetry, the poetry of deteriorating realities, intermingling realities, realities without Reality. And all the while that unnerving, serious laughter keeps getting louder and louder. Are we having fun yet? -Thomas Ligotti, author of TEATRO GROTTESCO and THE SPECTRAL LINK Mike Allen's UNSEAMING confirms his status as a poet who writes in dread and awe rather than ink. His most recurrent themes are those of wrenching loss and transformative retribution, with a liberal helping of the literal fear of God(s); sowing out a hundred different apocalypses, personal and otherwise, these stories reap an unforgettable crop of nightmares, sketching a chimeric universe in which shape-changing is less a rumour or an option than a sad, simple inevitability. Not to be missed. -Gemma Files, author of WE WILL ALL GO DOWN TOGETHER Mike Allen blends a poet's attention to language with a crime reporter's instinct for the darker precincts of human behavior. Lush, phantasmagorical, his stories match the monsters outside with the monsters inside, B-movie tropes opening into psychological and spiritual desolation. These stories glow with demonic energy, and what they illuminate are the faces of our secret selves, screaming back at us from the mirror's depths. -John Langan, author of THE WIDE, CARNIVOROUS SKY AND OTHER MONSTROUS GEOGRAPHIES
