Kate Middleton – Bertrand Meyer-Stabley

A commoner set to become the Queen of England: this is the extraordinary journey of a woman called Catherine, also known as Kate, Middleton. Her wedding to Prince William, on April 29, 2011, drew accolades from millions around the world. Overnight, she became the darling of Britons, who made her the new icon of the 21st century. They praise her for her simplicity, allure and maternal proclivity. But, watch out for potential pitfalls! Her couple is now scrutinized every second; her relatives monitored by the press; her dress style is analyzed in and out; and her children, George and Charlotte, have become the targets of paparazzi. And let us not forget the Machiavellian scenario – drawn straight from a Games of Crowns script – in which some sycophants want her to be the next Queen of England, contrary to royal succession lore.

The author :
In this comprehensive biography, an in-depth look into the young princess’ flawless life, Bertrand Meyer-Stabley, a longtime reporter at ELLE and author of seven books about the Windsors, provides refreshing and fascinating details on the chemistry that unites the Kingdom and its princess. He chronicles her daily life in London and Norfolk, offers a window into her private apartments, and invites the reader into her secret garden.

My diary under the occupation – Jeanne Lefebvre

While her husband is away fighting, Jeanne stays with her mother and her three children in Saint André lez Lille, a French village very quickly occupied by the Germans and where her house becomes the office of high ranking enemy soldiers. She puts pen to paper in order to relate accurately the events that left their mark on these four years and four days of occupation. She makes us feel the intense and constant fear the civilians lived with to the sound of bombs, shells and machine guns. She describes the mere citizens’ life and daily difficulties such as malnutrition and treason, but also the great mutual aid that occurred.
During these four years, Charles fights in the army with a rifle in one hand and his sketchbook in the other. On the French mobilisation of 1914, he had indeed gone to the station with the aim of making some sketches of the soldiers’ departure and had finally left with them.
Charles’ drawings and Jeanne’s writings form an extraordinary testimony, not only about this war, but also about the customs and practices of that time, the lifestyles we now do not have any idea of, without electricity, without radio, without television, without what we call the modern conveniences.
Those genuine documents have been entrusted by their granddaughter to Francis Arnould, who has then gathered them together in an exceptional book.

 Joffre

 Joffre the imposter, the lies of the Great War – Roger Fraenkel

Lies are frequent in the stories of the Great War because, since the beginning, we had to hide the undeclared aim in war in our country : recover the Alsace-Lorraine. There was a first big manipulation of truth when, on August the 4th 1914, president Poincaré exalted, in his message to the Chambers, the attitude of France who “achieved until the last moment supreme efforts to avert war -which is false- for which Germany will take the full blame”. The first lie was launched, others would follow.
The Battle of the Frontiers having condemned in a few days our five retired armies, our General Staff will hide the damage scope and will blame his subordinates, guilty of following his orders… Our military leaders cover themselves in the eye of civil power, the civil power also cover itself by glorifying with a Marne victory the army leader, which he never achieved.
This official organization of lie is here denounced by a simple citizen- researcher who fights against the disproportion between the population who is trying to get information and the government that knows too much.

The author :
Roger Fraenkel was born in Luik in 1935. He studied Arts applied to Industry. He is an enthusiast of everything that made France : the language, landscapes, population,… He is the creator of many travelling agencies in France and is the laureate of Toursim “Soleil d’Or”.

 39-45 : Ardennes 44, the bloody odyssey of the Kampfgruppe Peiper – Paul Thomas

This book is dedicated to the most important phase of this battle, the attack of the 6th SS-Panzer, the famous Kampfgruppe
Peiper (named after its commander).
Until then, this odyssey was always presented as the “furious” battle of the German offensive spearhead. The author, as a journalist,
retraces the course of the different units, interrogates the last living witnesses, analyzes the fighter’s reports, to change the vision we have of this attack and make it what it really was and that we never discovered : a brutal action that left a long trail of blood, made of military and civil murders.
A new vision on one of the most famous battles of World War II.

The author :
Paul Thomas was born on the 11 June 1932. He begins journalism at the age of thirteen, collaborating to the youth newspaper
“BIMBO”. He enters the “BELGA” press agency in Brussels in February 1952. He is appointed editor in 1956 and Managing Editor in February 1984. He also participates to several journals and magazines.

 Legende 39-45, Legends and nonsense about – Dominique Lormier

We think we know everything about the second world war and we tend to believe that History, though the years, got rid of all shadow or misunderstandings. Yet, each time we re-discover a file, we realize that, if clichés endure, the truth is completely different. It becomes then necessary to restore it, beyond antagonist passions.
The author, Dominique Lormier, set up the objective to shed a new light on the most important facts of the time :
The German offensive on May 10 1940 was a complete surprise… Wrong ! The French army of 1940 was decrepit and led by incompetent leaders… Wrong ! The German offensive of 1940 in the Ardennes only met weak resistance… Wrong !
Dunkerque was a great German victory in 1940… Wrong ! The battle of France in June 1940 was nothing but a military promenade for the Germans… Wrong ! France, defeated for good in 1940, failed in collaboration… Wrong !
The Normandy landings in 1944 were above all an american military operation… Wrong again !
This captivating book, richly documented on archives and often exclusive testimonies, wipes off the legends and other nonsense on this turning point of the twentieth century that is the Second World War.

The author :
Historian and writer, member of the Jean Moulin Institute, Legion of Honor award winner, Dominique Lormier is one of the best specialists of Second World War.

 Loge

“Dear Freedom”, the incredible story of a Masonic Lodge in an SS camp – Franz Bridoux & Catherine Teman

Franz was present at the beginnings of the respectable Lodge «Deer Freedom », founded in a nazi camp, Esterwegen, in Germany.
This Masonic Lodge, established in November 1943 inside a true “Hell on Earth”, is a strong symbol for the defense of man rights. Its seven founders, deported for resistance acts, were judges, pharmacists, advocates, doctors, professors and journalists and occupied the barrack “number 6”.
Franz shared the fate of those freemasons, prisoners from November 16 1943 to April 15 1944. He is one of the few who can talk about it today. This book reveals an uplifting epistolary and autobiographic exchange, mixing History, reflection and poetry. Franz, an old, wise and lucid freemason, tells the ups and downs of a long life through enlightening letters. Catherine, a young freemason full of expectations for the future and looking for answers to her questions, is the attentive addressee of his writings. This book represents a prodigious duty to remember but also an unusual initiatory quest.

The author :
Franz Bridoux was born in 1924 and arrested in 1943. He was transferred to Germany in a concentration camp and escaped in 1945. Catherine Teman, born in 1980, is an assistant in psychology and was initiated to freemasonry in 2010.

 pretre Priest among the SS – Louis Fierens

When Louis Firenes left for the Eastern front, his father, though fervent patriot, told him : “Where there are men and women suffering and dying, there must be a priest”.
This teacher in a catholic school, by going with the young Walloon legionnaires in Russia, only does what he considers to be his duty : to go where the presence of a priest is needed. He will stay when the legion is integrated to the Waffen SS. These war diaries and the presentation that Jean-Luc Hoste makes of it show a totally exclusive aspect of the Second World War, the Eastern front and the Waffen SS. It is an extraordinary path : priest by family tradition, chaplain by the SS out of religious
conviction.

 jeunesseSS Hitler Youth – D.C. Luytens

Numerous studies were carried out about Hitler Youth but very little testimony was published on the subject. Hitler Youth, paramilitary
organization of the Nazi Party, took in charge the formation of future “Aryans supermen” from 1926 to 1945.
Physical, ideological and moral preparation were the central focus of the training of this youth, who had to be able to sacrifice
themselves for Hitler and Nazi Germany.
On the first year of Hitler’s rise to power, the number of participants in Hitler Youth went up from one to three and a half million members. In 1939, the membership became mandatory for children from the age of seventeen years old and, in 1941, from ten years old. The best were destined to directly integrate the SS.
This book, through the stories and interviews of those who were coerced in this Nazi mini-army, explains how the German youth was prepared to integrate the country’s army. You will discover, thanks to extensive testimony, the life of the members of Hitler Youth, their physical and military training that included the wielding of weapons, the development of physical strength, military strategy and antisemitic indoctrination.
The aim of this book was not to write a history of Hitler Youth but focus on testimonies only, that allow, beyond official History, to understand how and why those children became nazi-devoted machines through their absolute faith in the Führer.

The authors :
D-C Luytens spent years collecting those exclusive testimonies. Daniel-Charles Luytens is a lecturer and a true field researcher.
His discoveries made during investigations are the subject of his numerous conferences.

 Breslau Breslau : The Impenetrable Fortress – Jacques Bressler

The Siege of Breslau (February to May 1945), a city on the river Oder which put up a surprising fight, is a little-known episode in World War II history. While the Germans are fleeing from all fronts, the capital city of Silesia, besieged by the 6th Soviet Army, defies the enemy.
In this book, author Jacques Bressler describes the Wehrmacht’s last success as well as the military manoeuvres that took place during this epic siege. He also illustrates the lesser-known aspects of this 80-day long battle: the dramatic evacuation of the city’s inhabitants in the freezing cold weather; the successful air bridge, which supplied the garrison and carried the wounded until the very end; the responsibility of underground communists cells; the role of women in defending Breslau. Beyond the actions of the heroic German soldiers, who held the city even after Berlin fell, Jacques Bressler emphasizes the bravery of the 100,000 remaining civilians. Their loyalty and discipline helped build the legend of Breslau, the “Imprenetrable Fortress.”

The author :
Jacques Bressler is a novelist, historian, and reserve officer with the French military. His German ancestors lived in Breslau in the 16th and 17th Centuries before moving to Alsace.

 inventions Odd stories of inventions – Jean C. Baudet

Our world is the product of History. But what really determined the evolution of humanity ? How was it made possible that we communicate with cell phones, travel by plane at more than 900 kilometers an hour, have energy to light, heat and cook ?
Are the big events of the past, those that really changed the world, about the weddings of kings and wars, or the inventions of man of science and technique ?

The author chose the 100 most considerable innovations by their consequences, since the invention of the tool (that appears at the same time as Man), to the birth of “multimedia” about only twenty years ago and plunged us into a world of Internet, with immediate access to millions of texts, music and animated pictures. Boeing, Colt, Siemens, Vesale, Mendeleev, Einstein : those are then the names that are the symbols of our time.
By exposing the conditions in which those innovations appeared, the author provides a captivating story of the most important events for men since their apparition on Earth.

The author :
Jean Baudet, philosopher and writer, is specialized in historic
and critic studies of thought systems. He has published
more than twenty books and hundreds of articles in
various magazines.

 imaginaire The History of Imaginary Worlds – Michel Udiany

“Imaginary worlds” revives the great civilizations through their biggest myths.
– The Tower of Babel and the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah did actually exist, but where were they ?
– And what where they exactly ?
– Did the Egyptians truly reach Southern Africa ?
– Where would have been situated the Garden of Eden ?
The discovery of the remote Occident, the crossing of the famous Columns of Hercules, and the search for Ultima Thulé kept the discoverers of the Baltic, Northern Isles and Canary islands busy : the Greeks and Phoenicians. Did Atlantis exist outside Plato’s imagination ? On which seas did Ulyssus wander ? Where was the Golden Fleece ?
And what about Asia ? Land of the marvelous, the Indies -later known as China- long stayed unknown to Europeans…
The men themselves, sailors, merchants, conquerors, missionaries, monks defying North Atlantic or the steppes of Asia, Vikings, first discoverers of Vinland or Portuguese in search of Priest Jean, were true adventurers. Legends were full of unlikely places haunted by giants, monsters and extraordinary people. But often, behind the myth, lies a geographical truth…

 impertinente Impertinent History : the big dates of humanity reviewed and corrected – Jacques Braibant

History, the younger sister of fable, according to Voltaire, is not an exact science. It is often the History of the winners. It has important memory losses. It is written for the edification of the crowds and avoids to be too disturbing.
It was proved that the major part of the Genesis was written 4000 years ago in Assyria and not at the seventh and sixth century BC in the land of Canaan. It was not the murder of Cesar that led to the end of the Republic in Rome, but the battle of Pharsale. It was not Charles Martel who stopped the Arabs in Poitiers in 732, but Eudes, the duke of Aquitaine, who defeated them in Toulouse on June 9 721.
Almost a century before Christopher Colombus and his three ships, the Chinese launched on the seas their colossal Fleet of the Treasure, containing 317 ships of more than 120 meters long and carrying 27 000 men. It will not visit Europe, a land that is well-known to the Chinese but does not particularly interest them.
And while shadows thickened in Occident, an extraordinary Arabic civilization lightened the world for five centuries. This book is an invitation to reflection on the big themes of History that have long been exploited, but take here their true signification.
A surprising book that will forever change your perception of History !

 minuit The man who bought Manhattan – Yves Vander Cruisen

Anything and everything has been written about Pierre Minuit, the adventurer who, at the XVIIth century, played a major role in the History of the United States of America. He was first ignored in the books and his initiatives were wrongly attributed to Peter Stuyvesant who arrived much later across the Atlantic. Then there were controversies concerning his origins.
For some, he was Belgian. But the French claimed to have traced him back to Valenciennes ; the Germans said he was from Wesel or Clèves while the Dutch declared he was Bavatian.

 Grands Life of the great philosophers – J.C. Baudet

Destined to a broad audience, this book is a History of Philosophy that centers on the essential and delivers the fascinating story of the progress of the human mind. Through about forty portraits of the greatest philosophers introduced in chronological order, the reader can follow the evolution of thought through its thinkers. This allows to situate each philosopher in his historical period and demonstrate in a clear way the filiations of ideas, that span from Plato to Aristotle, Kant to Hegel or Jean-Paul Sartre to Gilles Deleuze. Biographies can also be read separately, as in a dictionary.
It is a pleasant, almost novelistic way (but nothing is fictionalized), to travel in time with the biggest minds of all periods, understand the ideas of the most demanding thought, and discovering that the doctrines of today date back to a very distant past. It is an excellent way to be introduced to philosophy by discovering the systems, writings and search of the thinkers who dominated History.
The author tried to summarize the big lines of the philosopher’s works. It is a “history of reflection” but also a “reflection on history”, where philosophy is separated from religion, ideology and science.

The author :
Jean Baudet, philosopher and writer, is specialized in historic and critic studies of thought systems. He has published more than twenty books and hundreds of articles in various magazines.

 LouisIII Louis I, II, III… XIV : the amazing history of the numbering of the Kings in France – Michel-André Lévy

Who did number the Kings of France ? Despite appearances, the question is completely serious and it is surprising that it was never asked before. Those numbers did not suddenly appear as soon as a king wore the same name as one of his predecessors.
In fact, for centuries, kings were named before the number we know today. Saint Louis was for his contemporary King Louis, not Louis IX. Yet Louis XIV was known during his time as Louis XIV. What happened meanwhile ? Who is at the origin of this numbering ? And which criteria and knowledge did we use to do it ?
These questions have no simple answer, and the way this numbering organized itself is still very vague. The numbers that were eventually used by official History not always correspond to the reality of the reigns, and that is why we find in our genealogies kings without any number.
It is while studying one of them -Charles the Fat- that Michel-André Lévy noted that the numbering of t he Kings of France was yet a non-resolved question. He then started a real investigation to trace back its establishment. He gives out his results in an alert manner and gives us an acute look at the History of France and the way she was written. What seems to be a simple detail of nomenclature hides major historical and political issues. It is a surprisingly enriching food for thought.

 Blank bookcover with clipping path Mythical and Mysterious Creatures – Christian Vignol

There are over 6 million unknown species on our planet, and some of these mysterious animals have always eluded mankind.
Explorers and adventurers have followed the trail of such beasts as Bigfoot, the Yeti, the Loch Ness monster, giant octopuses, and many other animals that stand on the dividing line between reality and fantasy.
This book gathers what we know for certain about these mythical creatures and will take you on a safari across the globe:
You will dive into the Loch Ness to find the trace of the monster that is said to inhabit it.
You will climb the heights of the Himalaya to look for the “abominable snowman,” or Yeti, if you so prefer.
You will wade though the swamps of Central Africa, the unattainable refuge of the world’s last dinosaurs.
You will then dive back into the ocean to track down formidable octopuses and monstrous squids.
You will also meet the animals who frightened our ancestors – dragons, griffons, centaurs, and other beasts now relegated to an impressive mythological bestiary.

 Cruelles The cruellest women in history – Alain Leclercq

Shocking, sometimes inspiring and always fascinating, those stories plunge the reader in the life and times of 21 women who were among the most heartless and ambitious figures in history. Impudent, gifted, nasty, cunning, unstable, rock hard, they were products of their time, women who challenged the customs and ethics which were then in force.
Those women used all means available to achieve their individual targets. Their love of power gave sometimes rise to plots and murders. They longed to be number one in a world where man is a wolf to man.
A few examples of these 21 women:
– Queen Boudica got involved in a bloody crusade against the Romans, rallying the British tribes, and was held responsible for the death of at least 80 000 people.
– Empress Cixi ruled over China during 50 years and had executed anyone who dared to defy her.
– Georgia Tann stole 5 000 babies and set up a very lucrative adoption black market.
– In the South China Seas, Ching Shih, a former prostitute, arrived at the head of the largest pirate fleet ever. She terrorised the seas with 8 100 ships and 80 000 men.

 dameSC Odd stories of women in science – Jean C. Baudet

Women are now present as researchers in laboratories and as engineers in companies. But it has not always been the case! For centuries, social influence forbade women to access the scientific activities.
However, an admittedly very limited number of women managed to make a name in research. Some of them even became famous thanks to major discoveries, e.g. Marie Curie, who discovered radium. But she was not the only one, contrary to what is often thought!
The author has explored the history of sciences and has found more than forty women who played an important role in the advances in human knowledge, from Greek Antiquity to the 21st century.
He does not only trace the biography of these extraordinary women in great historical sagas, but he also explains their contribution to science and the many obstacles they overcame to become researchers.
This book is a surprising tribute to femininity and an analysis of woman’s place in society, at a time when some outdated ideologies come back, which would like to remove women from laboratories, universities and schools.

The author
Philosopher, Jean C. Baudet made himself known mostly with his nine volume work Histoire générale des sciences [General history of sciences] (Vuibert, Paris). He is a director of the Association of Belgian Writers and a member of the drafting committee for La Revue Générale.

 etrange Odd stories of the strange – Christian Vignol

What are the unknown resources of the brain and what happens in it?
The 16th century saw the devil everywhere and lit stakes to burn the witches. In the 18th century, spiritualism and table turning were a trendy pastime. In the 19th century, augurs and seers multiplied. And the enthusiasm for mysticism and irrationality didn’t flag in a worried and tormented 20th century.
Will the 21st century eventually give the beginning of an answer to the existential fears which have tormented the humans since the dawn of time? Will it reconcile the mage with the savant, the alchemist with the physicist, the astrologer with the astronomer?
Telepathy, clairvoyance, extrasensory perception, prophecies, miraculous healings, telekinesis, apparitions of ghosts, poltergeists, spells, exorcisms, reincarnations, journeys to the hereafter… the advances in the science have never allowed us to unravel the mysteries and to understand the smell of sulphur that surrounds all these unsettling phenomena, decorously classified as ‘paranormal’.
This book does not only explore the strange that has always obsessed the humans, but it also attempts to make a distinction between mystification and still unexplained strange phenomena.
Finally, it asks this question: will tomorrow’s humans learn to use the still unexploited nine tenths of their brain so that they will be able to understand what seems today to be incomprehensible?

 FemmmeVoile Veiled women in the Olympic Games – Annie Sugier

This battle begins in the early nineties.
Three women from different horizons and walks of life embark on an original adventure that leads them to be interested in the Olympic sphere. Their objective is to build on the terms of the Olympic Charter in order to exclude from the Games the countries that practice discrimination against women, such as it had been the case of South Africa because of apartheid.
Over a year before, in Tehran, the highest authorities of the Islamic Republic had decided to challenge the world through sport by propagating the culture ‘of hijab and modesty for free women across the world’.
Of course, those two views of women’s rights and thus of society could only collide with each other. The one founded on the universal principles of human rights, the other on the submission of women’s rights to religious and cultural diktats.
Written in a vivacious and humorous style, this book tells a two decade long David against Goliath battle. Furthermore, it deals with various contemporary figures, e.g. Commander Massoud, Juan Antonio Samaranch and Jacques Rogge, but also with pioneers of the Olympic spirit which have been taken straight from history, e.g. Baron de Coubertin and his sworn enemy, the Frenchwoman Alice Milliat… But this time, David does not win the game.

Mohamed Merah in Toulouse, Jeremie Louis Sidney in Strasburg, Hakim Benlagdhem in Brussels, Muriel Delgauque who makes herself explode in Irak, Colleen La Rose (aka “Jihad Jane”), arrested before bloody attempts in Europe, and many others : the New Jihadists are among us. Offenders, converted, solitary or marginal, men or women : they replace the first fighters of Al-Qaïda. All try to purify themselves through the holy war or give some meaning to their lives. While the risk of big attempts, like the ones of 9/11, stay real, the time is also to actions taken by solitaries or “micro cells” extremely hard to penetrate.
Those that the Anglo-Saxons call the “homegrown terrorists”, the “insiders”, born and raised in Europe or in the USA, live at the heart of the countries they aim. They are no ideologists but rebels, moved by hate.
For the first time, a book tells who they are, unveils their recruitment, their training and explains how they were indoctrinated.
Furthermore, based on the study of more than a hundred case, the author identifies “typical profiles” of this new “enemy from the inside” that is threatening our society. Eventually, as a conclusion, the author proposes simple and efficient measures to face this new threat.

 couv les plus mauvaises meres The famous abusive mothers of History – Louise-Marie Vandenhove

This book is the story of the life of famous abusive mothers throughout History, from Antiquity to our days. For these women, maternity turned into a weapon, a tool of power, a way to achieve their arrogant desire of might. Empresses, queens, princesses, sultanas, even sometimes mere bourgeois, they were “abusive mothers”. Making use of their sons and daughters like pieces on the chessboard of international politics, disregarding all natural tenderness, these mothers only listened to their own selfish ambitions. This book brings the stories of several destinies of pushy mothers and tells the fate of broken children, sacrifices to the narcissistic glory of the ones who had
given birth to them.

– Thétis and her son Achilles
– Agrippine and Nero
– Eleanor and Henri II
– Marie de Medicis and Louis XIII
– Louise-Athanaïse and Claudel

 ScBeaute

CENTURIES OF BEAUTY: BETWEEN SEDUCTION AND POLITICS – Sylvie Bailly

Wearing lipstick may seem to be something trivial millions of women do every day without even questioning themselves.
Yet, according to the political and religious context, this way of enhancing the natural colour of the lips can be seen as an act of seduction, as a political claim…
Beauty, which is often regarded as a “seduction weapon”, allows women to assert themselves and to counterbalance men’s military and physical force. It is no coincidence that across history, religions and dictatorships have tried to keep this beauty, often considered as a threat, under control. The resurgence of the obligation that Eastern women and Western Muslim women wear the veil raises more than ever the question of the supposed danger of female beauty.

 HistFM ODD STORIES OF FREEMASONRY: TO THE DISCOV ERY OF ITS BIBLICAL ORIGINS : Léopold Vanderhaeghen

What are the true origins of Freemasonry?
The corner stone of Freemasonry really seems to be a combination of elements the first British Freemasons collected here and
there in the Bible.
In the old and the new Testaments, following biblical characters from Noah to Jesus, the author analyses the notions of altar, temple, rough stone, sacrifice, and most particularly the notion of secret that might have fuelled the imagination of those who funded the institution. He has a special interest in the myth of Hiram, a biblical character seen as a civilizing hero around which freemasonry organized itself in a consistent way.
Written by a scientist like a police investigation, this book will surprise all the Freemasons, but also anyone who has an interest in history or in the origins and filiation of the major schools of thoughts.
The author goes back to the creation of Freemasonry and explores the main reasons of its success.
This book clearly establishes an often sought but also much debated filiation.

About the author
Léopold Vanderhaeghen is a professor of philosophy and letters.
He holds a degree in architecture, a degree in art history, a diploma in advanced studies in religious science and a PhD in philosophy from the Université libre de Bruxelles.

 PAsFM IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE FREEMASONS – Pierre Guelff

Who better than a Freemason can reveal the secrets of a Masonic lodge?
Who better than a reporter can share with us a conversation between an archbishop and the master of a mainly secular
Grand Lodge?
Who, again, can take us at the heart of an anti-Masonic demonstration or introduce us to one of the last survivors of “Loge Liberté chérie”, founded within a Nazi concentration camp?
Who better than a columnist can reveal what lies behind the “Masonic” curtain of the internet, facebook, radio and television studios?
Who better than a journalist can reopen debates by revealing Mozart was in favour of the mixing of the sexes in Masonic Lodges or by establishing a parallelism between Buddhist and Masonic rituals?
Besides revealing the other side of an either hated or admired institution which continues to hit the headlines, Pierre Guelff allows us to fully enter the debates around and within Freemasonry.
He also takes us to Masonic architectural sites.
This book is the result of a field work. It will be the cornerstone for Freemasons willing to improve their knowledge, who will be like the layman who wants to discover an unknown but so close world.
Pierre Guelff is a Freemason and a journalist. He wrote several books on Freemasonry, the mystery and the sacred. Some of his books were discussed in television and radio chronicles.
He was awarded the “Prix des Auteurs de l’Année”, “Prix de la Ville de Versailles et de la Ville de Rouen”, “Prix des Arts et des Lettres en France”.

 couv la drogue dans mes veines The drug in my veins, my children under my skin – Samanta Borzi

Samanta Borzi’s story relates a revival and a spectacular advancement. Badly loved daughter, she is terrorised by a stepmother who makes her believe that the devil and hell are everywhere.
She grows in a world full of nightmares and where she has a disastrous image of herself.
In her adolescence, she sinks: prostitution and drug. Addicted to heroin, tragedy strikes: Samanta falls asleep after taking a dose and loses a baby in utero.
Disconsolate, consumed by guilt, she falls deeper into drug abuse.
Pregnant for the second time and still dependent, Samanta gives birth to a son who is therefore born an addict.
One night, the young woman takes him to a hospital and, broken-hearted, she begs the doctors to take charge of him because she knows she is unable to meet his well being needs.
Until the day when…

The author
Samanta is today a comedienne and has got his son back after he was long placed in foster family. She is starring in Ismaël Saïdi’s film ‘Moroccan Gigolo’s’. And her projects multiply.

 couv bébé parc My baby, I must abandon you – Güldane Sönmez

What is to be done when you are a 16 year old Turkish girl who discovers she’s pregnant?
Well, you hide your pregnancy from all your family and you give birth on your own, in the toilets… this is what Güldane did.
Living normally in appearance and hiding this secret that could have serious consequences was her ultimate escape. Living in the fear of dying for having transgressed a code of honour and saving her child without arousing suspicion were her only horizons.
Güldane’s hell really begins once her baby is born. Her family takes control of her life, she is forced into an arranged marriage and her daughter is taken from her.
But Güldane is a reed that bends but does not break. Despite what happens to her, she decides to fight, to resist and to win her freedom and her independence. This will be achieved after an incredible adventure… apart from the fact that, for 28 years, she has been waiting impatiently to hug her daughter.
This testimony is a great lesson in living as much as a message of love and an apology, because Güldane has never wanted to abandon her baby…

The author
Güldane Sönmez has remarried and works now as a housekeeper in a large hotel. She has two other children who know there is an older sister they have never met. Just like her husband Christophe Moulaert, she hopes that their family will be complete one day. May this book help them.

 jamais vous naurez mon fils You will never get my son! – Isabelle Neulinger

On 24 June 2005, in the middle of the night, Isabelle Neulinger flees Israel and crosses clandestinely the Israeli Egyptian border, in the Sinai desert, with the aim of going to Egypt and, from there, reaching Switzerland. Her two year old son is hidden under diving gear in the back of the car.
Fleeing was the young woman’s only option to escape her husband, who had been enrolled in an ultra-orthodox religious group and incited their son to share his mystical wanderings while his wife was facing insults and death threats.
Desperate and helpless, Isabelle decides to get divorced, to free her son from the control of his father and to flee Israel even though she is forbidden to leave the country. A 20 year prison sentence and the obligation to abandon her little boy to her ex husband, this is Isabelle’s fate if she is arrested.
This extraordinary and up to now kept secret epic illustrates the incredible courage of a mother who fights to save her child.
Strong and breath-taking like a thriller, this book unravels the secrets of a flight and an audacious battle against two powerful States. It also breaks a taboo regarding the status of married women who, in Israel, are victims of laws from a previous age.

  100rock  100 classic rock songs an their hidden meaning – Axel Du Bus

French rock fans know the music but rarely the lyrics. For the first time, a music enthusiast analyzes with humor and rigor the lyrics of 100 classic rock songs and their hidden meaning : from the Beatles to Radiohead, the Rolling Stones to Rage Against the Machine, David Bowie to Blur, the Who to Prince…
You’ll discover that Born in the USA by Springsteen is not at all an hymn to the triumphant America of the Reagan years. That One by U2, one of the most played songs in weddings all over the world, is, according to Bono himself, a break-up song. That Lola by Kinks should have been called Lolo. Or that Turn ! Turn ! Turn ! by Byrds is not exactly the desperate cry of a driving teacher to his pupil…
100 Classic Rock Songs is the adaptation of the Your Song program broadcasted on radio since 2011 and partially reproduced on different media.

The author
Axel Du Bus lives in Brussels. As a teenager, he was saved by rock music. For the rest, he writes, draws, makes scenarios and even succeeded once in repairing a copier.

There is currently a new interest in the Devil, that spans from fascination to worry, from curiosity to terror. And that is because the one that the New Testament calls “The Prince of this World” seems to be more present than ever. To understand and apprehend this phenomenon, to really know what or who we are talking about, a serious book was cruelly missing. A book perfectly documented, complete, able to decipher and clarify the demonological speech, was needed. Besides a thorough analysis based on the existence of demons, their story and the danger to summon them, the signification of the pacts, bewitchment and black mass, this book leads us in the universe of demoniac entities.
An exhaustive dictionary lists them all, describing their appearance, functions, magical prescriptions and inherent dangers to their possible activation. Essential tool to some, exciting read to others, this book, written by two great scholars who long taught magic or witchcraft, is dedicated to all those who take interest in the occult.

To be called a “reac” is rarely a compliment, especially in the teaching sphere. In the media and political language, a “reac” is someone denouncing the “politically correct”, May ’68, mass culture and every word ending in “ism” : anti-racism, communitarianism, egalitarianism,… It is in this definition that veronique Bouzou recognizes herself, even if it discontents the do-gooders and other progressive to whom the past must be buried -including all that was efficient- to the benefit of hazardous initiatives, as it is currently the case in national education. Yes, school must be freed and mostly students, from the manipulation attempts that grade from the calling into question of the teacher to the misappropriation of school programs. It addresses the taboo subjects in school : discipline, immigration, money, attempts of political or religious infiltration, violence in class… The survival of the national education is a challenge to the politics, teachers, parents and young. It is time to take it.

Véronique Bouzou is a literature teacher in a school in Paris.

 couv mon fils s'est converti imak My son converted to Islam – Clara Sabinne

What is there to do when a tsunami lands on your quiet life ? When you discover one day that your eldest son converted to Islam ? I am the mother of two grown, well-balanced boys. I am a blooming executive, a young, healthy, fifty-years old. Everything was fine until this May 15, 5:21 in the morning, when I understood that my son Simon was converted to Islam. Before I could understand what was going on, panic seized me, fear paralyzed me and tears rolled down my cheeks. Why this terror ? Why this total loss of serenity towards the religious choice of my boy ?
It became obvious to me that I did not know a thing about Islam or Muslims. My fear had grown from my ignorance, the amalgams I was doing between Islam and terrorism, Muslims and lack of respect towards women. To control my terror and respect my son’s choice, I opened myself to a world I did not know. This book tells the evolution of my perception of Islam and the metamorphosis of my son.

The author :
Clara lives with her two sons. Trained in economy, she represents the charity foundation of a bug multinational in Europe. Since her teenage years, Clara writes books in her free time. This book is the first one to be published.

 couv condamne a mort 1couv I WAS BY THEIR SIDE ON DEAT H ROW – Tyree Bailey

“Can you imagine, just for one moment, what it would be like to know that you are going to die? I can!
In the hell I’m living, I see it every day, I imagine it every day, I live it every day. How could I avoid it given that my work in this prison is to look after prisoners on death row?”
A heartbreaking story with stabbing words!
This book is about time going by too fast, time not passing, the terror one feels when the execution day approaches, loneliness, madness, hatred, racism, fury, rebellion, and sometimes love, but also about the pain mothers feel when they see their child die, the fury of helpless fathers and the screams coming out of the dungeon.
The end of hope…
The author wrote this book in order that everybody knows what really takes place behind the concrete walls of the Texan penitentiary, where some prisoners are expecting death for more than 30 years, while others suffer abuse and hunger or become slaves.

About the author
Tyree Bailey is a 38-year-old African-American. He is well educated and speaks several languages. He is incarcerated in a maximum security penitentiary in Texas. We had access to this collection of testimonies thanks to Julia ‒ his wife since 2010 ‒ who translated them for us.

 Abuseur FROM ABUSED CHILD TO ABUSIVE ADULT – Nicolas Henri

This testimony is unprecedented. To give the floor to a sexual abuser is indeed extremely rare. But even though Nicolas Henri’s case is special, it does not absolve him of his responsibilities, nor does it take away the monstrous things he did. He accepted his sentence without lodging any appeal and a reassessment of his victims’ compensation, which he paid. He fought to receive the therapy the prison administration had promised him but was not giving.
He wrote this journal in prison. Thanks to it, we can follow his way of thinking, his growing awareness of the seriousness of his actions, the evolution of his responsibility throughout his time in prison, and more particularly from the beginning of his therapy.
It seemed important to us to be able to apprehend the phenomenon of sexual assault on minors as a whole, without closing our eyes to the facts. It is useful to understand the mechanisms at work and put into perspective therapeutic means and sanctions used to reduce such assaults.
Psychologist Serge Corneille, a sexual abusers specialist, throws light on Nicolas Henri’s actions and way of thinking.
Any unlawful writing was of course prohibited.

About the author
Nicolas Henri is now 70 years old. This former teacher was sentenced to five years in prison.

 couv guantanamo GUANTANAMO: OBAMA’S MISTAKE – Anne-Marie Lizin

Who doesn’t know about Guantanamo? Who didn’t hear of president Obama’s promise to close this American prison situated in Cuba?
Still, nobody really knows what lies behind this institution and until now, the voice of Guantanamo’s guards had not been heard…
Thanks to the shocking revelations of the penitentiary staff, this book unravels the secrets of the real Guantanamo.
During the Bush administration, the staff fought to put an end to torture but their voices remained unheard… and the current President won’t pay more attention to it.
From the beginning, Obama was informed that he was not allowed to close the prison.
Those testimonies also denounce the errors of judgment committed by Obama and his advisers, the kind of mistakes that could have disastrous consequences.
This disturbing story sums up the whole “chronicle of a death foretold” and the risks associated with the release of dangerous Taliban.
Thanks to this book, you will understand why Guantanamo didn’t close its doors despite the solemn commitment of an American president and why the situation won’t change…

About the author
Anne-Marie Lizin was the president of the Belgian senate between 2004 and 2007 and a member of the Belgian government between 1988 and 1992.
The president of the OSCE asked her to carry out an investigation on Guantanamo.

 couv montasser Why We Are All Jihadists – Montasser AlDe’emeh

What goes through the minds of young jihadists who leave the UK, France, the Netherlands, or Belgium? What goes through the mind of a young man who was born and raised in Europe, but goes to wage war in a country he didn’t even
know existed five years ago?
This is a question we all ask ourselves. While experts and journalists comment on this phenomenon, far away from the actual fighting, the author of this book, a young Belgian academic of Palestinian descent, went to Syria and joined a
group of European jihadists.
He lived, slept, ate, and crossed borders alongside them. By sharing their routine, he tried to understand their motivations, and his conclusions are surprising, a far cry from the usual clichés.
Today, Montasser AlDe’emeh has created a “deradicalization” centre, as the authorities like to call it, even though he prefers the name of “knowledge centre.”
Beyond his incredible story, he delivers the most subtle and relevant analysis to date about this phenomenon.

The author:
Montasser AlDe’emeh is a 26-year-old academic from Belgium and Palestine.
An islamologist and armed jihad specialist, he takes part in numerous seminars and his expert opinion is often called upon by international media, such as Der Spiegel.
He is the founder and director of “The Way to…” centre.

This is a strong and disturbing account, which unveils the most sordid and well-kept of secrets.
Akli Bellabiod is a former police officer who worked for the great Saudi families, the entourage of the royal family, in their home country as well as in France.

Akli Belladiod strongly criticizes how women and children are treated in this world of hypocrisy and slavery.
This book digs deep into a secret and usually inaccessible world.

Akli Bellabiod studied political science and is a former officer of the forensics department of the Algerian police. He conducted a number of missions in France, Algeria, and Saudi Arabia.

  Dopage DOPING: THE BOOK TAKING STOCK OF THE MYTHS, LIES AND CONTINUING SCANDALS – Gilles Goetghebuer

Doping cases appear almost every day in the media.
An athlete dies in full effort. Another is found in possession of illegal products. A third one falls into disgrace after a positive doping test. Doping is always presented as a baseness, a betrayal committed by a handful of unworthy champions, guided by treachery and the lure of profit.
It doesn’t reflect the reality.
Doping is not something new and money does not play a decisive role in it. Doping wears people out, hurts them and sometimes even kills them. Doping is not limited to a tarnishing minority. On the contrary, doping is an essential part of modern sport just like training or technology.
Today, champions are doped. But the problem is soon going to ‒ if it is not already the case ‒ arise among workers, farmers, students or soldiers.
Why taking drugs? How does it work? What are the risks?
How do we fight it?
This book lifts the veil on the explosive issue of “doping for everyone”, a subject which is not often discussed. The analysis and the answers this book contains help to shape the outline of tomorrow’s society.

About the author
Gilles Goetghebuer is editor-in-chief of the magazines “Sport et vie” and “Zatopek”. He hosts several radio and television chronicles. His knowledge of doping leads him to regularly intervene in the media.

 Alzheim ALZHEIMER, MY MOTHER AND I – Chantal Bauwens

«Alzheimer, my mother and I» tells the story of the strange ‘ménage à trois’ we experience when someone close to us develops this terrible disease with an uncertain outcome.
An authentic and intense story that makes you stop feeling guilty.
Many books talk about Alzheimer from a clinical point of view. But Chantal Bauwens talks about it from another point of view: the one of the child who becomes the parent, of those who inadvertently become the help, of the ones who land on an unknown planet whose inhabitants have an odd behaviour and speak a different language.
Thanks to her lively, ironic, funny and affectionate writing, this talented writer shares her experience with us: from the moment she discovered her mother had Alzheimer disease to the moment she died, including their surreal daily life.
This story is neither miserable nor depressing. On the contrary, it is full of life.

About the author
Chantal Bowens is a writer and an essayist. In addition to being a funny and ironic observer of society, she has a unique ability to share her own universe with the reader and win his loyalty. She is the author of several books and essays.

FROM PARADISE TO HELL: 23 YEARS IN AMONG JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES – Michèle Bastin

After living for 23 years among Jehovah’s witnesses, the author gives us a very moving and realistic testimony, revealing the awful truth of her everyday life among this community.
Why are we joining Jehovah’s witnesses? Who are they exactly? How do they behave?
Michèle Bastin makes us enter an unknown and terrifying world, a world made of precepts and taboos. We relive her life from the moment she ‒ a young woman, abandoned, pregnant and psychologically weak ‒ thought she could find some comfort and protection among her “Brothers and Sisters” until the moment she left them, 23 years later, disgusted by the way of living of those who call themselves the ”God’s Soldiers”.
Writing shamelessly and vividly, she comes back over many facts, some of which very painful, such as when she lost two of her children in a car accident, her refusal of blood transfusions or when she broke off relations with one of her daughters, who is still a member of the Organisation.
Michèle Bastin is now 61 years old. She lives with her husband and is a thoughtful grandmother, always there when her grandchildren need her. Living life to the fullest and full of energy, she sees herself as the standard-bearer of those who, like herself, had or have to deal with these new religious communities.
