    Primento Digital Publishing 2017; US$ 5.99

    Jamais on n'aura autant parlé d'écologie en France, en 2015? et jamais le parti politique censé porter ce combat, Europe Écologie ? Les verts, n'aura été aussi inaudible !

  • The Art of Being Freeby James Poulos

    St. Martin's Press 2017; US$ 18.89

    Most of us probably don?t learn about Alexis de Tocqueville in school anymore, but his masterpiece, Democracy in America , is still surprisingly resonant.

Clearly... more...

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 111.17

    Based on in-depth interviews conducted with British politicians, this book analyses the different impacts of leaving political office.

Jane... more...
