1 A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court - Mark Twain
Auteur : Mark Twain

The tale begins when the "yankee," a skilled mechanic in a 19th century New England arms factory, is struck on the head during a quarrel, and awakens to find himself being taken as a prisoner to the Camelot of 528 A. D. With his 19th century know-how, the "yankee" sets out to modernize the Kingdom, but is opposed by a jealous court magician.

3 A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Complete - Mark Twain
Auteur : Mark Twain
Genre : Épopée
“A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is an 1889 novel by American humorist and writer Mark Twain. The book was originally titled A Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Some early editions are titled A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur.

In it, a Yankee engineer from Connecticut is accidentally transported back in time to the court of King Arthur, where he fools the inhabitants of that time into thinking he is a magician—and soon uses his knowledge of modern technology to become a "magician" in earnest, stunning the English of the Early Middle Ages with such feats as demolitions, fireworks and the shoring up of a holy well. He attempts to modernize the past, but in the end he is unable to prevent the death of Arthur and an interdict against him by the Catholic Church of the time, which grows fearful of his power.

Twain wrote the book as a burlesque of Romanti

9 Crash Cultures - Jane Arthurs & Iain Grant
Auteur : Jane Arthurs & Iain Grant
Genre : Sciences sociales
Since Diana's car crash in August 1997, media interest in the crash as an event needing explanation has proliferated. A glut of documentaries on television have investigated the social and scientific history of our responses to the car crash, as well as showing the personal impact of the crash on individual lives. In trying to+J16 give meaning to one celebrity crash, the more general significance of the car crash, its challenge to rational control or explanation, its disregard for the subject and its will, became the focus for attention. Coincidentally, the two most newsworthy films of 1997 were David Cronenberg's Crash and James Cameron's Titanic, both of which generated intense popular interest. The principal purpose of this collection of essays is to subject texts, within which crashes figure, to well-defined cultural study. The themes that emerge from this collection, whi

12 Russell Brand: Comedy, Celebrity, Politics - Jane Arthurs & Ben Little
Auteur : Jane Arthurs & Ben Little
Genre : Arts du spectacle
'This is a fantastically exciting book, one which both forensically interrogates the cultural significance of Brand as a comedian but which also places him at the heart of a much bigger intellectual narrative about comic celebrity and its increasing impact on contemporary British politics.' 
-Sam Friedman, London School of Economics and author of Comedy and Distinction: The Cultural Currency of a 'Good' Sense of Humour

'How can a celebrity of global stature ‘transform public debate, become an established symbol of activist politics, and then seem to vanish almost without trace’? Arthurs and Little’s remarkable new book tackles this question with transdisciplinary lucidity, unpacking the many meanings of Russell Brand, situating the maverick trickster in broader context, and in the process offering a vibrant and vital resource for all those who want

Quatre sites témoins d'une activité industrielle intense qu'a connue l'Europe au siècle passé.

14 The Politics of Everyday Life in Fascist Italy - Joshua Arthurs, Michael Ebner & Kate Ferris
Auteur : Joshua Arthurs, Michael Ebner & Kate Ferris
Genre : Europe
This book explores the complex ways in which people lived and worked within the confines of Benito Mussolini’s regime in Italy, variously embracing, appropriating, accommodating and avoiding the regime’s incursions into everyday life.

At the same time, this volume also provides a framework for understanding the Italian experience in relation to other totalitarian dictatorships in twentieth-century Europe and beyond.

15 How to Love a Jamaican - Alexia Arthurs
Auteur : Alexia Arthurs

16 Excavating Modernity - Joshua Arthurs
Auteur : Joshua Arthurs
Genre : Europe
The cultural and material legacies of the Roman Republic and Empire in evidence throughout Rome have made it the “Eternal City.” Too often, however, this patrimony has caused Rome to be seen as static and antique, insulated from the transformations of the modern world. In Excavating Modernity, Joshua Arthurs dramatically revises this perception, arguing that as both place and idea, Rome was strongly shaped by a radical vision of modernity imposed by Mussolini’s regime between the two world wars.

Italian Fascism’s appropriation of the Roman past-the idea of Rome, or romanità- encapsulated the Fascist virtues of discipline, hierarchy, and order; the Fascist “new man” was modeled on the Roman legionary, the epitome of the virile citizen-soldier. This vision of modernity also transcended Italy’s borders, with the Roman Empire providing a foundation fo

17 Extraterritoriality by Other Means: How Labor Law Sneaks Across Borders, Conquers Minds, And Controls Workplaces Abroad - Harry Arthurs
Auteur : Harry Arthurs
Genre : Droit
INTRODUCTION Labor lawyers generally believe that each country's labor law, for better or worse, expresses its fundamental values and reflects its historic experience; that states can neither import nor export labor law because of the unique characteristics of each country s legal and industrial relations systems; (1) and that the doctrine of extraterritoriality (2) shields each state's labor law from the intrusion of others, thus ensuring that each can pursue its social and economic development in the manner it thinks best. While labor lawyers who hold these views are genuinely respectful of national sovereignty, some also chafe under its restrictions. They believe that the extraterritoriality doctrine unduly limits the capacity of a state to protect the labor rights of its own citizens while they are employed abroad. They are also concerned that a state cannot punish the businesses

37 The Quest For Arthur's Britain - Geoffrey Ashe

Genre : Histoire
The legend of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table dominates the mythology of Britain, but could this story prove more fact than fiction?

Auteur : Mark Twain
Genre : Action et aventure
The ungentle laws and customs touched upon in this tale are historical, and the episodes which are used to illustrate them are also historical.  It is not pretended that these laws and customs existed in England in the sixth century; no, it is only pretended that inasmuch as they existed in the English and other civilizations of far later times, it is safe to consider that it is no libel upon the sixth century to suppose them to have been in practice in that day also.  One is quite justified in inferring that whatever one of these laws or customs was lacking in that remote time, its place was competently filled by a worse one.
  The question as to whether there is such a thing as divine right of kings is not settled in this book.  It was found too difficult. That the executive head of a nation should be a person of lofty character and extraordinary ability, was

41 A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court - Mark Twain & Michael Clay Thompson
Auteur : Mark Twain & Michael Clay Thompson
Genre : Classiques
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court is the first novel in Michael Clay Thompson's Time Trilogy. 
Thompson provides close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. They all focus on the author’s writing technique while still keeping the child's mind on the book itself.

This is a novel with riches to spare, filled with Twain’s irrepressible relish for the English language, loaded with characters of all kinds, pervaded with irony. There are moments when the novel seems to be entirely humorous, and there are moments when the novel is horrifyingly prophetic, as in the final scenes that seem to be visions of the great world war to come, little more than a decade after the novel was published.
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court is no novel for the

44 Arthur's Hall (Fantasy and Horror Classics) - E. T. A. Hoffmann
Auteur : E. T. A. Hoffmann
Genre : Nouvelles
This early work by E. T. A. Hoffmann was originally published in 1816. Born in Königsberg, East Prussia in 1776, Hoffmann's family were all jurists, and during his youth he was initially encouraged to pursue a career in law. However, in his late teens Hoffman became increasingly interested in literature and philosophy, and spent much of his time reading German classicists and attending lectures by, amongst others, Immanuel Kant. Hoffman went on to produce a great range of both literary and musical works. Probably Hoffman's most well-known story, produced in 1816, is 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King', due to the fact that - some seventy-six years later - it inspired Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker. In the same vein, his story 'The Sandman' provided both the inspiration for Léo Delibes's ballet Coppélia, and the basis for a highly influential essay

45 King Arthur's Knights - Henry Gilbert
Auteur : Henry Gilbert
Genre : Romans et littérature
This book is an attempt to tell some of the stories of King Arthur and his Knights in a way which will be interesting to every boy and girl who loves adventures.
Although tales of these old British heroes have been published before in a form intended for young people, it is believed that they have never been related quite in the same spirit nor from the same point of view; and it is hoped that the book will fill a place hitherto vacant in the hearts of all boys and girls.
No doubt many of you, my young readers, have at some time or another taken down the Morte D'Arthur from your father's bookshelves and read a few pages of it here and there. But I doubt if any of you have ever gone very far in the volume. You found generally, I think, that it was written in a puzzling, old-fashioned language, that though it spoke of many interesting things, and seemed that it ought to b

The ‘Yankee’ vows brashly to "boss the whole country inside of three weeks" and embarks on an ambitious plan to modernize Camelot with 19th c. industrial inventions like electricity and gunfire.
