John Stuart Mill opens his essay by discussing the historical "struggle between authority and liberty," describing the tyranny of government, which, in his view, needs to be controlled by the liberty of the citizens. He divides this control of authority into two mechanisms: necessary rights belonging to citizens, and the "establishment of constitutional checks by which the consent of the community, or of a body of some sort, supposed to represent its interests, was made a necessary condition to some of the more important acts of the governing power." L’ouvrage porte sur la conciliation de notre liberté avec la nécessaire autorité de l’État pourtant « extrêmement dangereuse ». Par le passé, les hommes se contentaient de combattre un ennemi par un autre, c'est-à-dire de se laisser diriger à condition d’être plus ou moins garantis contre la tyrannie. Puis les hommes prirent conscience de la situation et commencèrent à vouloir un pouvoir indépendant, révocable.

The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare is a novel by G. K. Chesterton, first published in 1908. The book is sometimes referred to as a metaphysical thriller.In Edwardian era London, Gabriel Syme is recruited at Scotland Yard to a secret anti-anarchist police corps. Lucian Gregory, an anarchistic poet, lives in the suburb of Saffron Park. Syme meets him at a party and they debate the meaning of poetry. Gregory argues that revolt is the basis of poetry. Syme demurs, insisting the essence of poetry is not revolution but law. Alors que la lumière rougeoyante du crépuscule s'étend sur les faubourgs de l'est londonien, deux poètes aux conceptions opposées se disputent dans le jardin de Saffron Park. Le premier, Lucien Gregory, défend une poésie du mouvement et de l'imprévu en affirmant les liens entre art et anarchie : « L’artiste nie tous les gouvernements, abolit toutes les conventions. Le désordre, voilà l’atmosphère nécessaire du poète » ; le deuxième, Gabriel Syme, défend la beauté des choses qui se déroulent sans heurt jusqu'à leur but : « Encore une fois, qu’y a-t-il de poétique dans la révolte ? Autant dire que le mal de mer est poétique !

The Vienna Conventions On The Law Of Treaties

The 1969 and 1986 Vienna Conventions on the Law of Treaties are essential components of the contemporary international legal order. They aim at regulating what has become the main source of public international law and a crucial tool in inter-state relations. The Vienna Conventions codify to a significant extent the customary rules that pre-existed in the field, but also put forward innovative concepts, such as jus cogens. In spite of their importance, these two instruments had so far not been the object of a detailed commentary. These volumes fill that gap, by providing both international and national lawyers with an in-depth analysis of each provision of both Conventions. The structure of each commentary is essentially uniform, with the first part dedicated to the exposition of that provision's object and purpose and to the assessment of its customary status. The second part of each commentary deals with the main issues of interpretation raised by the provision in question. Extensive reference is made to the travaux preparatoires of both Conventions, including the work of the UN International Law Commission and the proceedings of the 1969 and 1986 diplomatic conferences, and to practice both prior to and following the adoption of the Conventions. The 90 + authors who contributed to the book come from twenty different countries and include some of the most respected experts in international law.

France and Women, 1789-1914 is the first book to offer an authoritative account of women's history throughout the nineteenth century. James McMillan, author of the seminal work Housewife or Harlot, offers a major reinterpretation of the French past in relation to gender throughout these tumultuous decades of revolution and war. This book provides a challenging discussion of the factors which made French political culture so profoundly sexist and in particular, it shows that many of the myths about progress and emancipation associated with modernisation and the coming of mass politics do not stand up to close scrutiny. It also reveals the conservative nature of the republican left and of the ingrained belief throughout french society that women should remain within the domestic sphere. James McMillan considers the role played by French men and women in the politics, culture and society of their country throughout the 1800s.

The French law of international arbitration has a beginning (1963) and a culminating point (2007), but fortunately it does not have an ending. Indeed, it does not cease to evolve, to improve, to perfect itself. Thus it invites one to carefully observe it. But before undertaking this careful observation by annually identifying the most important decisions, as this collection has been doing since 2008, it is important to recall the origins of French law on international arbitration, how it was built, and in so doing, predict where it is heading. Looking into the past to anticipate the future, that is also the interest of a book like the present one. This selection, necessarily subjective, is also shaped by the advantages that a retrospective look offers. The benefit of hindsight allows one to confidently distinguish between the decisions that deserve mention and those which did not make it into history. Only the former are printed in the following pages, but all of such decisions are included. Conversely, all decisions from 2008 onwards will be methodically published in the annual reports of this collection, of which two editions have already been released for the years 2008 and 2009. Aimed for practitioners and academics alike, the knowledge of French case law is indispensable to understanding international arbitration and its important influence around the world.
