Vivons la ville autrement

Vivons la ville autrement

Des villes durables où il fait bon vivre au quotidien


M. Musy, L. Estival, P. Picq

Edition 2017

Les villes du futur ressembleront-elles au paradis sur Terre, assurant bien-être et santé à tous les citadins ? La question peut surprendre. Pourtant de Zurich à Tokyo, en passant par Nantes ou Lyon, chercheurs, entreprises et simples citoyens travaillent main dans la main pour inventer les métropoles du futur où il fait bon vivre… Grâce au concours d’une douzaine d’experts, cet ouvrage – ni écolo béat ni techniciste aveugle – explore les mutations en cours en pointant les avancées comme les limites.

Campagnes contemporaines

Contemporary countryside

What economic and environmental transformations?


S. Blancard, C. Détang-Dessendre, N. Renahy

Edition 2016

The notion of countryside and rural areas is ambivalent: does the term "rural" refer to agricultural areas, a serene atmosphere or city suburbs?

This book delves into the different facets of rural and suburban areas. Their dynamics are part and parcel of contemporary economic and social issues, both in terms of demographics and lifestyles, economic activities and public policy: the important role played by towns, land management and environmental issues and the institutional organisation of territories.

The upheavals affecting the countryside are the same as those facing the rest of France, but have their own particular effect.

Sociology of Arable Crops

Sociology of Arable Crops

At the Heart of the Agricultural Industrial Model


F. Goulet, A. de Raymond

Edition 2014

Arable crops have for many years constituted a laboratory for preparing an industrial model in agriculture. From a sociology perspective, this work studies the contemporary transformations of arable crops and shows how they still constitute, in a context of globalisation of agricultural markets, a hotbed of heterogeneous innovations, as productive as they are marketable or political, and also the preferred target of criticism of high-intensity agriculture. Arable crops, as a practice and as political topic, thus constitute a driving force for the current transformations in agriculture.
