The Sans culottes
A phenomenon of the pre-industrial age, the Sans-Culottes--master craftsmen, shopkeepers, small merchants, domestic servants--were as hostile to the ideas of capitalist bourgeoisie as they were to those of the ancien regime which was overthrown in the first years of the Revolution. Here is a detailed portrait of who these people were and a sympathetic account of their moment in history.
'Sans-Culottes' sets out a new way of thinking about the history of the French Revolution. It's starting point is the now-forgotten original meaning of the phrase sans culottes, or what the condition of being without breeches (sans culottes) once meant in the 18th century.

A City Year
In his inaugural address in 1993, President Clinton said: "I challenge a new generation of young Americans to a season of service to act on your idealism by helping troubled children, keeping company with those in need, reconnecting our torn communities." In the fall of 1990, Suzanne Goldsmith had signed on for her own "season of service" with City Year, the widely praised, Boston-based community service program frequently endorsed by political figures as a model for the nation. 'A City Year' is the story of Goldsmith's experience, an honest and gritty account of the triumphs and setbacks faced by an idealistic and experimental social program in its infancy. Together with a diverse team of young men and women--including a Burmese immigrant, a white prep-school graduate, a foster child, an ex-convict, and a black middle-class college student--Goldsmith helped renovate a building for the homeless, tutored school children, reclaimed a community garden from drug dealers, and organized a community street-cleaning day. The year Included backbreaking but gratifying work, the sense of family that comes from collaborative labor, and the potential strength of diversity. 'A City Year' is both the story of an uphill battle in urban America and an uplifting recipe for social change. As the AmeriCorps national service program dangles in the political wind on Capitol Hill, this book offers a true glimpse of what a "season of service" really means. It is a fascinating account for sociologists and all those with an interest in community service and youth.

Following the detachment of his retina, travel writer Diego Tribeca is left half-blind. Returning to his family home to await treatment, he discovers that his phone is tapped into those of the other residents in his block. In his solitude his eavesdropping becomes an obsession, and he becomes more and more involved in their lives. He starts a relationship with one of the tenants, who unknowingly is the missing link in his troubled family history. Listening to other people’s stories and problems, he begins an investigation into his own past life, which in turn will change his future. Translated from the Italian novel Ti Ascolto by Federica De Paolis, who is particularly good at depicting the weakness and obsessions of contemporary women, the novel takes delicate issues like cancer, anorexia and domestic violence and deals with them bluntly and directly in a story that takes place in contemporary Italy, but could be happening anywhere… even next door to you.
