2008-03-23

The author was part of the HEC Paris MS "Sustainable development" 2006/2007

This book is a compendium of six articles that were published in Le Monde between November 2005 and April 2006, a text by Martin Hirsch and an introduction by Pierre Rozanvallon and Thierry Pech.The authors postulate that the French social unrest relies on the inability to set and decipher the changes appeared since the end of the Trente Glorieuses, because « reality resists to the traditional concepts we use to apprehend it ». The objective is therefore to establish a new social criticism in order to give the society the strength and ability to change itself ».
