2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
Since 1999, Europeans have successfully launched and developed a European Security and Defence Policy. Concurrently to this strategic breakthrough of the European Union, they have contributed to their own collective defence for decades within the NATO framework and conducted a significant number of multilateral defence co-operations. What is the core of the European defence project and is there a roadmap according to which is it developing in order to tackle current security challenges? What are the main drivers that lead the Europeans to act together and how effective are they in the field of international security? For the first time, a French naval officer and a Franco-British defence analyst jointly set about identifying problems between the main players and the avenues to explore in terms of European Defence.
