Les grandes crises dans l'histoire: Comment on en est sorti


Alors que la crise bat son plein en France, à la fois économique, politique et sociale, les idées semblent manquer pour en sortir. Pourtant, ce n’est pas la première fois qu’un pays, une société, voire une civilisation, traverse une période difficile. Les quatre cavaliers de l’apocalypse ont si souvent montré leur hideux visage : la maladie, la famine, la guerre, l’impérialisme n’ont jamais cessé. Ce livre revisite donc les grandes crises de l’histoire en insistant particulièrement sur les solutions imaginées pour les résoudre. Car les hommes ne sont pas restés passifs face à ces défis, et ils sont même souvent parvenus à les surmonter. Empruntant des exemples à Athènes, la Chine ancienne, l'Arabie du temps de la naissance de l'Islam, ou encore à la crise de 1929, sans oublier les chocs pétroliers, ce livre propose une véritable boîte à outils intellectuels. Une manière, en somme, d’interroger les meilleurs spécialistes de ces périodes, en gardant le regard tourné vers l’avenir.

Psoriasis is a condition that is suffered by many millions of people all over the world, with various developed countries reporting incidence rates that are remarkably similar.
For instance, in the USA, the reported rate of severe psoriasis is somewhere between 2% and 3% of the population, whilst in Australia, the condition affects around 2% of the population as well.
Furthermore, it is suggested in some quarters that up to 20% of the population of the USA may have some form of psoriasis ranging from the very mild to severe, and that perhaps as many as 4.5 million people could be serious psoriasis sufferers.
On top of this, it is reported that there are 150,000 new cases of psoriasis reported every year in the USA alone, so if it is assumed that psoriasis is as prevalent in other countries as it is in the States, it clearly represents a significant problem on a global scale.
For psoriasis sufferers, there is something of a ‘good news, bad news’ paradox with which most of these people have undoubtedly already learned to live.
The good news is that, on the one hand, psoriasis is not a condition that is life threatening (although it has been suggested that the condition increases the risk of heart attack). Balanced against this however is the fact that psoriasis can bring a great deal of misery to both sufferers and their families, so it is not a condition that can be ignored.
Furthermore, because it can develop into something far more unpleasant and painful, psoriasis is a condition that sufferers have to treat.
As with any medical condition or complaint, there are many different ways of treating or dealing with psoriasis, some of which are dependent on pharmaceutical drugs whilst others are completely natural. And of course, it almost always follows that treating any medical condition naturally is the best way of doing things if such treatments are going to be appropriate and effective.
The purpose of this book is to examine what psoriasis is and what causes it in greater detail, before looking at the various different ways of treating the condition.
Armed with this information, you should be in a position to consider and decide whether using pharmaceutical drugs is a good idea for treating your own psoriasis condition or whether using 100% natural methods of treating your condition is a better idea.
Okay, so you had fun with your friends last night and drank a bucketful of alcohol. However, this morning you found it hard to wake, your head was pounding like a pneumatic drill and you were feeling more than a little nauseous.
And what was wrong with you? A hangover that's what!
The term 'hangover' may not be familiar to everyone, but for many of us, it's a word that brings a chill to the very thought of waking up in the morning, still tired with an aching body, a headache, feeling nauseous and with a mouth dryer than the sole of an Afghanistani's flip-flop. Yet, most people don't even think about the consequences while out partying with friends and family.
“No Nay Never - No Nay Never No More!”
It's a claim many of us have made the morning after the night before, while suffering with a skull-pounding hangover. Unfortunately, this vow is often short-lived and is particularly hard to maintain during the festive and holiday season. (People tend to increase their alcohol consumption during the holidays when there are more parties).
The most important message of course is that people shouldn't drink too much in the first place, because a hangover is just one negative consequence of excessive alcohol intake.
There are numerous other downsides, which can be very serious, such as loss of control over emotions, anger or moroseness and poor decision-making. Drinking too much in a single night can result in fatal alcohol poisoning. In other words, you can literally drink yourself to death.
In this book, you'll discover...
Why we get hangovers?
How we can avoid them?
How bad it can get?
And what we can do when we have one?
Plus, a few ill-advised cures from around the globe...

We'll try to answer all these questions in an unreserved, clear-cut manner and hopefully, without falling off the bar stool!
