Geopolitical fiction

In an undetermined future, Armenia, Cyprus, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Kurdistan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Turkey are the member States of the Community of the Levant since twelve or so years. Twenty-four experts chosen by the leaders of these twelve countries had secretly prepared its advent. How did they organize, articulate and develop their discussions and solutions? How were their plans defined, and then realized? Why did centuries of violence in the Near East come to a sudden end in a single night? What have been the consequences?
A “report from the future” to meet actors of this renewal who reveal hitherto confidential facts, and to discover some of the achievements of the Community: its earthquake warning centre in Ani on the border between Turkey and Armenia, its capital city on the Golan Heights, the Aquarius Project and the underground pipework channelling water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, an ecumenical dialogue centre in the Sinai, etc.
And also an initiatory journey, inviting to wonder about the construction of the European Union.

Translated from the 2nd French edition (2014)

Josquin Barré

Josquin Barré, the son of a painter and grandson of an architect from Nantes, fell in the cauldron of culture the day he was born in 1949. This predisposition, usefully complemented by a peripatetic and cosmopolitan education, naturally inclined him towards further education and a career in the tourism industry. He worked in a number of roles including hospitality, the planning and sale of travel and holiday packages. He then addded communication-based jobs to the range of his skills, first as a journalist and then as columnist in the industry's press. From 1980, anticipating major changes that would result from the merging of the information technology and telecommunications, a became a consultant in tourismatics (a neologism he invented) and in the fields of tourism organization, strategy and marketing channels.
A speaker and trainer, he is the author of the methodological guide VENDRE LE TOURISME CULTUREL, a benchmark publication for local government executives, cultural heritage managers, projects promoters and event organizers.
His \"report from the future\" THE STAR OF THE LEVANT is the story of twelve Middle-Eastern States which have come together to form the Community of the Levant. This geopolitical fiction is also a critical counter-model of the European Union.

Il n'y a pour le moment pas de critique presse.
