  • Taiji Kase (1929 - 2004) a formé presque tous les cadres du karaté français. 10e dan de karaté, maître Taiji Kase a vécu en France presque 40 ans. Combattant hors-pair, il était chargé dans les années 60 de relever les défis lancés à la j.k.a., la puissante fédération Shôtôkan japonaise. Arrivé en France en 1967, il enseigna 5 ans au karaté Club de France, le dojo de Henry Plée, premier club de karaté d'Europe, avant de créer son propre dojo et de voir défiler ceux qui deviendront les plus grands noms du karaté. Ses livres sur les katas ont été les plus étudiés des années 1970 à 2000. Cet ouvrage reprend tous les katas supérieurs traditionnels du Shôtôkan, ainsi que Ten no kata, auxquels s'ajoutent les deux katas créés par maître Kase : les Heian oyo et Tekki oyo.

  • Hiroo Mochizuki est le premier Japonais à enseigner le karaté en France.

Cet ouvrage est une biographie non exhaustive, une sorte de livre de souvenirs illustré de photos, d'archives personnelles et de documents d'époque. Il est émaillé d'anecdotes autour de certains des personnages, parents, relations, qui ont joué à un moment ou à un autre, de près ou de loin, un rôle sur son parcours personnel et celui de sa famille. Écrites à la demande de nombreux proches, enseignants, élèves, ces chroniques intéresseront le lecteur pratiquant d'arts martiaux mais aussi ceux s'intéressant au Japon.

  • An inevitable Guide, An unique concept




    Between pleasure and emotion



    With this eighth edition, the VERON Champagne Guide reaches its maturity and imposes its originality.
    Faithful to its original concept, which consists in refusing to classify and mark the selected champagnes in order not to reduce them to vulgar consumer goods of which performance could be measured, it continues to develop in accordance with its editorial line.
    The 91 Champagnes selected in this VERON Champagnes Guide 2018 thanks to the numerous tastings, in total independence, offer you the opportunity to travel directly in the heart of the Champagne area, to discover the infinite wealth of it, which enabled it to enter into the UNESCO World Heritage on 4 July 2015.
    A source of fascinating encounters with professionals from Champagne (producers, wine growers and cellar masters), this book is a testimony to the extraordinary creativity of the Champenois, whose ancestral expertise, constantly reinvented, constitutes a true cultural heritage.
    Made in Champagne by Michel VERON, oenologist and oenology teacher at Lycée Viticole de la Champagne since 1991, this book published in French and English was born out of his passion for Champagne tasting, his long experience enriched with innumerable exchanges with the Champenois wine makers and his thirst for discovery...
    "Art and wine serve to bring people together." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

  • The must-read summary of Atul Gawante's book "The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right".
    This complete summary of the ideas from Atul Gawante's book "The Checklist Manifesto" shows that when solving problems, it's easy to get caught up in the complexities whilst ignoring the obvious, simple solutions. This summary highlights that every business sector can take some tips from the commercial aviation industry's emphasis on checklists. Indeed, despite the growth of super-specialisation, steps are sometimes missed, which demonstrates that problems often exist not because of a lack of knowledge, but just because routine can create complacency. 
    Added-value of this summary: 
    o Save time 
    o Understand the key concepts
    o Expand your business knowledge

  • A complete course in the art Of baking with chocolate from The "harvard of gastronomy"
    Savor the culinary savoir-faire of ferrandi paris, The world-renowned cooking school
    Tempering and coating, ganaches and truffles, puff pastry and candy, chocolate ribbons and other decorative flourishes-this essential reference reveals 42 fundamental techniques to master cooking with chocolate, explained step by step through text and more than 250 photographs.
    From the classics-chocolate mousse, custard tart, éclairs, profiteroles, macarons-to celebration cakes and sophisticated plated desserts, this volume presents 76 recipes for all occasions, from quick desserts to festive specialties, for the home chef and experienced professional alike.

  • Prince Louis François de Bourbon-Conti - cousin of King Louis XV of France - was a patron of contemporary intellectuals such as Diderot, Beaumarchais, and Rousseau, and well-known as an avid art collector. His stroke of genius was the purchase of the Romanée vineyard, which later became known as the Romanée-Conti.
    This volume reveals the secrets of the legendary wine, which has earned a cult following of connoisseurs around the world. Following a biography of the Prince of Conti, detailed notes from recent wine tastings allow readers to identify the characteristics of this unique wine, which must be considered within the context of the Climats of Burgundy-the terroirs where the Burgundian grape varieties grow in optimal conditions. These fabled terroirs have benefited from a unique, centuries-long continuity and they were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2015.
    To understand Burgundy, readers must be familiar with its Climats, but also conscious of the climate-the meteorological conditions in which each vintage is created-because the production of fine wines, and especially of those made from grape varieties at the very height of maturity, resembles at times an obstacle course created by nature to play tricks on the winegrower. Laurens Delpech-through lengthy excerpts from harvest reports published since 1996 by Aubert de Villaine,
    co-director of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti-recounts the saga of successive vintages, which illuminates the difficulty of the vigneron's profession.
    This original, complete, and engaging volume brings to the forefront the duality of the Climats and climate that give rise to the finest wines in Burgundy. An excellent overview of the Romanée-Conti, it is also essential reading for those who wish to sharpen their knowledge and appreciation of Burgundian wines.

  • This book has been published by Allenvi (French National Alliance for Environmental Research) to coincide with the 22nd Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) in Marrakesh. It is the outcome of work by academic researchers on both sides of the Mediterranean and provides a remarkable scientific review of the mechanisms of climate change and its impacts on the environment, the economy, health and Mediterranean societies. It will also be valuable in developing responses that draw on "scientific evidence" to address the issues of adaptation, resource conservation, solutions and risk prevention. Reflecting the full complexity of the Mediterranean environment, the book is a major scientific contribution to the climate issue, where various scientific considerations converge to break down the boundaries between disciplines.

  • A founder of comparative anatomy and a giant of nineteenth-century biology, Georges Cuvier, and his student and colleague Achille Valenciennes, brought together all that was known about fishes in their massive 22-volume Histoire naturelle des poissons published from 1828 to 1849. Despite the passage of time, this work represents a landmark in the history of science, indispensable to systematic ichthyology and to comparative biology in general. As an introduction to this monumental work, the first volume traces the development of the study of fishes as then understood-from the earliest beginnings to the first third of the nineteenth-century-and summarizes the criteria for classification that their own work would follow. This critically important essay-one of the first attempts at a comprehensive history of any major group of organisms-now appears in English alongside the original French text, beautifully illustrated and accompanied by rich annotations and commentary, serving to bring this important text to our attention and highlighting its historical significance.

  • We don't talk about it and avoid the tension generating subject. Snoring makes us laugh or even cry. We very much want to get rid of it. There are ways to fight it. You will find an inventory of them herein, complete with advice on how to improve them, but that's not all! This book sets forth a natural and original manner of curing snoring and sleep apnea. It's an actively engaging method as opposed to others which confine the snorer to a passive role (drugs, surgery, etc.), proposing exercises by which the snorer strengthens and activates his oral cavity and refines its sensations. Validated by numerous doctors, physical therapists and practitioners of alternative medicine, this book can be read on different levels: by those who are just discovering their snoring problem as well as by those who are well aware of it but haven't yet found a satisfactory solution.

  • Les documents manuscrits de la famille des Jussieu, professeurs de botanique au Jardin du Roy puis au Muséum d'histoire naturelle (1710-1853) ont été acquis en 1858 par le Muséum après la mort d'Adrien de Jussieu. Conservés à la Bibliothèque centrale du Muséum ils forment un fonds riche d'informations pour l'histoire des sciences, particulièrement celle du Jardin et celle de la Botanique. Parmi les plus anciens, se trouve un portefeuille contenant 98 dessins de champignons (en couleur), réalisés vers 1730, par Claude Aubriet (c. 1665-1742) sous la direction d'Antoine de Jussieu (1686- 1758). Claude Aubriet. peintre miniaturiste au Jardin du Roy. est connu pour la réalisation des illustrations des Elémens de botanique que publie Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1708) en 1694. Ces dessins sont loués pour leur précision par Carl von Linné lui-même. Les dessins de champignons par Aubriet furent exécutés à une période « clé » dans l'histoire de la mycologie, puisqu'en 1729. Pier Antonio Micheli publie dans son ouvrage fondamental (Novo plantarum généra) une étude précise des champignons, accompagnée d'excellentes gravures en noir et blanc. Les réalisations d'Aubriel souvent soignées et fidèles aux modèles, sont précieuses car les représentations en couleurs de champignons sont rarissimes avant la fin du xviiie siècle. Elles témoignent en outre du regard que l'on portait alors sur ces cryptogames, qui apparaissaient bien mystérieux du point de vue de leur organisation, de leur reproduction et. pour tout dire, de leur « existence » même. Cette publication intéressera vivement les mycologues et contribuera a faire connaître Claude Aubriet. En outre, elle souligne le rôle décisif que les illustrateurs scientifiques ont toujours joué au cours de l'histoire.
