By Diarmaid MacCulloch. 2003
The Reformation is often chronicled as a single, momentous period in the history of the Church, where a number of… competing groups of reformers challenged a monolithic and corrupt Roman Catholicism over issues ranging from authority and the role of the priests to the interpretation of the Eucharist and the use of the Bible in church. MacCulloch argues instead that there were many reformations. He challenges common assumptions about the relationships between Catholic priests and laity, and explains that even within various groups of reformers there was scarcely agreement about ways to change the Church. 2004, c2003.
By John Ralston Saul. 1995
Saul, a Canadian essayist and novelist, claims that 20th century ideologies have promoted truisms that undermine the acquisition of knowledge… and reason and the quest for the public good. Instead, managers and technocrats are seen as gods, passive and conformist politics abound, and only salesmanship, style and fashion are seen as meaningful. Saul argues that the average citizen must rise above a smothering bureaucracy and today's mindless devotion to "corporatism" to pursue knowledge and active, publicly interested civic engagement. Winner of the 1996 Governor General's Award for Non-fiction.

By Czeslaw Milosz. 1984

By Lise Noël. 1989
L'intolérance et l'oppression peuvent prendre des visages multiples. On n'avait pas encore tente jusqu'ici de dresser un tableau d'ensemble qui… montre comment s'articulent les rapports dominants/dominés autour des paramètres que sont l'âge, le sexe, la condition physique et mentale, l'appartenance ethnique, la langue ou l'orientation sexuelle. C'est ce que l'on trouve dans ce livre. 1989.
