Ce livre réunit plus de cent textes traduisant la prise de conscience, chez les Grecs et les Romains, des multiples rapports que les hommes entretiennent avec les animaux. Comment les hommes se situent-ils par rapport à l'animal ? Les bêtes pensent-elles ? accèdent-elles au langage ? peuvent-elles relever d'un ordre juridique ? 'foutes questions qui surgiront, entières, de textes étonnamment neufs. On verra aussi comment les hommes apprennent à maîtriser l'infinie diversité des formes vivantes et inventent l'exercice de la classification scientifique. A côté de cela, agronomes et poètes décrivent et transmettent les gestes et l'intelligence par lesquelles l'humanité est parvenue à conquérir les animaux, à les capturer, à les élever, à les domestiquer, à les exploiter... et à les manger. Comment alors ne pas demander, avec Plutarque, s'il est loisible de manger chair ? Si quelques philosophes défendent la cause des bêtes, c'est aussi aux historiens, en des pages souvent méconnues, mais parfois terribles, de rendre compte du massacre que furent les jeux du cirque.

The Death Penalty As Torture

During the Dark Ages and the Renaissance, Europe¿s monarchs often resorted to torture and executions. The pain inflicted by instruments of torture¿from the thumbscrew and the rack to the Inquisition¿s tools of torment¿was eclipsed only by horrific methods of execution, from breaking on the wheel and crucifixion to drawing and quartering and burning at the stake. The English ¿Bloody Code¿ made more than 200 crimes punishable by death, and judicial torture¿expressly authorized by law and used to extract confessions¿permeated continental European legal systems. Judges regularly imposed death sentences and other harsh corporal punishments, from the stocks and the pillory, to branding and ear cropping, to lashes at public whipping posts. In the Enlightenment, jurists and writers questioned the efficacy of torture and capital punishment. In 1764, the Italian philosopher Cesare Beccaria¿the father of the world¿s anti¿death penalty movement¿condemned both practices. And Montesquieu, like Beccaria and others, concluded that any punishment that goes beyond absolute necessity is tyrannical. Traditionally, torture and executions have been viewed in separate legal silos, with countries renouncing acts of torture while simultaneously using capital punishment. The UN Convention Against Torture strictly prohibits physical or psychological torture; not even war or threat of war can be invoked to justify it. But under the guise of ¿lawful sanctions,¿ some countries continue to carry out executions even though they bear the indicia of torture. In The Death Penalty as Torture, Prof. John Bessler argues that death sentences and executions are medieval relics. In a world in which ¿mock¿ or simulated executions, as well as a host of other non-lethal acts, are already considered to be torturous, he contends that death sentences and executions should be classified under the rubric of torture. Unlike in the Middle Ages, penitentiaries¿one of the products of the Enlightenment¿now exist throughout the globe to house violent offenders. With the rise of life without parole sentences, and with more than four of five nations no longer using executions, The Death Penalty as Torture calls for the recognition of a peremptory, international law norm against the death penalty¿s use.

In many ways, Roman attitudes to animals were similar to our own; they kept animals as household pets, they farmed animals for meat and hunted and fished. However, animals also played a far more significant role in Roman culture and religion - and in the Roman imagination. In this book, Dr Iain Ferris discusses the extraordinary slaughter of huge numbers of animals for entertainment in the Roman arena, their association with the gods, their place in mythology and symbolism and their use in Roman religious practice. Many of their actions towards animals are seen today as cruel, but what did animals mean for the Romans and how did they view their own actions? Cave Canem examines both written and archaeological sources, particularly visual evidence in the form of sculptures, coins, mosaics, wall paintings and decorated everyday items in order to shed light on animals in Roman culture.

In Words Like Loaded Pistols, Sam Leith traces the art of persuasion, beginning in ancient Syracuse and taking us on detours as varied and fascinating as Elizabethan England, Milton's Satanic realm, the Springfield of Abraham Lincoln and the Springfield of Homer Simpson. He explains how language has been used by the great heroes of rhetoric (such as Cicero and Martin Luther King Jr.), as well as some villains (like Adolf Hitler and Richard Nixon.) Words Like Loaded Pistols is a primer to rhetoric's key techniques; you'll find out how to build your own memory-palace; you'll be introduced to the Three Musketeers: Ethos, Pathos and Logos; and you'll learn how to use chiasmus with confidence and occultation without thinking about it. Most importantly of all, you will discover that rhetoric is useful, relevant – and absolutely nothing to be afraid of.
