The Routledge Dictionary of Cultural References in Modern French
The Routledge Dictionary of Cultural References in Modern French reveals the hidden cultural dimension of contemporary French, as used in the press, going beyond the limited and purely lexical approach of traditional bilingual dictionaries.

This vital background information, gathered here in this innovative and entertaining dictionary, will allow readers to go beyond a superficial understanding of the French press and the French language in general, to see the hidden yet implied cultural significance that is so transparent to the native speaker. Key features: a broad range of cultural references from the historical and literary to the popular and classical, with an in-depth analysis of punning mechanisms. over 3,000 cultural references explained a three-level indicator of frequency over 600 questions to test knowledge before and after reading.

It will also be of interest to teachers, translators and Francophiles alike.

Life on the Screen
Life on the Screen is a book not about computers, but about people and how computers are causing us to reevaluate our identities in the age of the Internet. We are using life on the screen to engage in new ways of thinking about evolution, relationships, politics, sex, and the self. Life on the Screen traces a set of boundary negotiations, telling the story of the changing impact of the computer on our psychological lives and our evolving ideas about minds, bodies, and machines. What is emerging, Turkle says, is a new sense of identity—as decentered and multiple. She describes trends in computer design, in artificial intelligence, and in people’s experiences of virtual environments that confirm a dramatic shift in our notions of self, other, machine, and world. The computer emerges as an object that brings postmodernism down to earth.

À première vue, on pourrait croire que c'est un garçon ordinaire mais lorsqu'il fait trop froid à l'Halloween ou qu'il fait trop chaud pour des sucettes glacées, Grognonstein se manifeste et se met à grogner : AAAHGRRR! Ce n'est que lorsqu'il rencontre un autre spécimen de son espèce qu'il se met à rire, pour un instant, car méfiez-vous, Grognonstein tend à réapparaître assez rapidement... Beware of Grognonstein! He is a monster of grumpiness that no one can destroy! He may look like any ordinary boy, but when faced with a rainy day, a melting popsicle, or an early bedtime, this little boy transforms into a mumbling, grumbling Grognonstein. When Grognonstein meets his match in a fellow Grognonstein, the results could be catastrophic -- or they could be just what he needs to brighten his day! Original title: Crankenstein
