Réflexions sur le centenaire de la Révolution mexicaine

Un siècle bigarré

Edited by Julián Durazo Herrmann

En cent ans, le Mexique est passé d’une guerre civile violente à un régime autoritaire, pour ensuite entamer une transition démocratique lente et difficile, souvent qualifiée d’incomplète. À l’occasion du centenaire de la Révolution mexicaine célébré en novembre 2010, ce livre propose un bilan de celle-ci. Il traite des effets sociaux et politiques immédiats de cette révolution, de la longue transition démocratique mexicaine ainsi que de l’influence de ces évènements dans le monde.

Régulation et évaluation des compétences en enseignement

Edited by Louise M. Bélair

Les décisions prises dans chaque activité d’enseignement à propos des niveaux de compétences à atteindre par les futurs enseignants et enseignantes participent à leur éventuelle accréditation dans le métier. D’où l’importance d’étudier la validité de ces décisions. Des chercheurs en éducation de l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières et de la Haute école pédagogique de Lausanne se sont rencontrés pour réfléchir à ce sujet. Les cours théoriques ne permettent-ils pas tout au plus de prédire un niveau de compétence ? Dans quelle mesure l’évaluation en situation de stage est-elle juste, considérant que le contexte (école, enseignant associé, etc.) varie ? Sur quels référents se baser pour mesurer les compétences quand peu de chercheurs s’entendent sur les caractéristiques du « bon enseignement » ? Les auteurs proposent des pistes de réflexion pour rationaliser les pratiques de régulation et d’évaluation des compétences professionnelles.

The Rāmāyaṇa of Vālmīki: An Epic of Ancient India, Volume IV

Kiskindhakāṇḍa

Rosalind Lefeber

This is the fourth volume of a translation of India's most beloved and influential epic tale--the Ramayana of Valmiki. As befits its position at the center of the work, Volume IV presents the hero Rama at the turning point of his fortunes. Having previously lost first his kingship and then his wife, he now forms an alliance with the monkey prince, Sugriva. Rama needs the monkeys to help him find his abducted wife, Sita, and they do finally discover where her abductor has taken her. But first Rama must agree to secure for his new ally the throne of the monkey kingdom by eliminating the reigning king, Sugriva's detested elder brother, Valin. The tragic rivalry between the two monkey brothers is in sharp contrast to Rama's affectionate relationship with his own brothers and forms a self-contained episode within the larger story of Rama's adventures.

This volume continues the translation of the critical edition of the Valmiki Ramayana, a version considerably reduced from the vulgate on which all previous translations were based. It is accompanied by extensive notes on the original Sanskrit text and on several untranslated early Sanskrit commentaries.

The Rāmāyaṇa of Vālmīki: An Epic of Ancient India, Volume V

Sundarakāṇḍa

Robert P. Goldman

The fifth and most popular book of the Ramayana of Valmiki, the Sundarakanda, recounts the adventures of the monkey hero Hanuman in leaping across the ocean to the island citadel of Lanka. Once there, he scours the city for the abducted Princess Siti. The poet vividly describes the opulence of the court of the demon king, Ravana, the beauty of his harem, and the hideous deformity of Sita's wardresses. After witnessing Sita's stern rejection of Ravana's blandishments, Hanuman reveals himself to the princess and restores her hope of rescue. The great monkey then wreaks havoc on the royal park and fights a series of hair-raising battles with Ravana's generals. Permitting himself to be captured by the warrior Indrajit, Hanuman is led into the presence of Ravana, whom he admonishes for his lechery. His tail is set ablaze, but he escapes his bonds and leaping from rooftop to rooftop, sets fire to the city. Taking leave of Sita, Hanuman once more leaps the ocean to rejoin his monkey companions.

This is the fifth volume translated from the critical edition of the Valmiki Ramayana. It contains an extensive introduction, exhaustive notes, and a comprehensive bibliography.

The Rāmāyaṇa of Vālmīki: An Epic of Ancient India, Volume VI

Yuddhakāṇḍa

Robert P. Goldman

The sixth book of the Ramayana of Valmiki, the Yuddhakanda, recounts the final dramatic war between the forces of good led by the exiled prince Rama, and the forces of evil commanded by the arch demon Ravana. The hero Rama's primary purpose in the battle is to rescue the abducted princess Sita and destroy the demon king. However, the confrontation also marks the turning point for the divine mission of the Ramavatara, the incarnation of Lord Visnu as a human prince, who will restore righteousness to a world on the brink of chaos. The book ends with the gods' revelation to Rama of his true divine nature, his emotional reunion with his beloved wife, his long-delayed consecration as king of Kosala, and his restoration of a utopian age. The Yuddhakanda contains some of the most extraordinary events and larger-than-life characters to be found anywhere in world literature.

This sixth volume in the critical edition and translation of the Valmiki Ramayana includes an extensive introduction, exhaustive notes, and a comprehensive bibliography.

The Rāmāyaṇa of Vālmīki: An Epic of Ancient India, Volume VII

Uttarakāṇḍa

Robert P. Goldman

The seventh and final book of the monumental Rāmāyaṇa of Vālmīki, the Uttarakāṇḍa, brings the epic saga to a close with an account of the dramatic events of King Rāma’s millennia-long reign. It opens with a colorful history of the demonic race of the rākṣasas and the violent career of Rāma’s villainous foe Rāvaṇa, and later recounts Rāma’s grateful discharge of his allies in the great war at Lankā as well as his romantic reunion with his wife Sītā. But dark clouds gather as Rāma, confronted by scandal over Sītā’s time in captivity under the lustful Rāvaṇa, makes the agonizing decision to banish his beloved wife, now pregnant. As Rāma continues as king, marvelous tales and events unfurl, illustrating the benefits of righteous rule and the perils that await monarchs who fail to address the needs of their subjects.

The Uttarakāṇḍa has long served as a point of social and religious controversy largely for its accounts of the banishment of Sītā, as well as of Rāma’s killing of a low-caste ascetic. The translators’ introduction provides a full discussion of these issues and the complex reception history of the Uttarakāṇḍa. This translation of the critical edition also includes exhaustive notes and a comprehensive bibliography.
