Décider de ne pas décider

Deciding not to decide

What makes it so difficult?


M. Claessens

Edition 2016

More and more frequently, in politics and in science and technology, we no longer take decisions or there are no decisions to take. Nuclear energy, climate change, GMOs... all areas where we fail to take decisions and where sometimes they can no longer be taken.

Several types of non-decisions are presented in this small book. In some cases they are a way (often trivial) of actually taking a decision. In others they are the result of mechanisms in which new globalised technologies play an essential role and ensure their deployment at all levels of society.

La pêche à pied

Fishing from the shore

History and techniques


G. Deschamps

Edition 2016

Fishing from the shore has always been part of maritime culture but the history of its practices and the evolution of its various techniques have not been widely disseminated. This book aims to remedy that deficit. The author explains how man, down through the ages, has engaged in what used to be a subsistence activity and today is a leisure sport. This journey through time shows the creative genius of man and the countless methods he has devised to exploit available resources.
