    On 8 March 2014, a Boeing 777 of Malaysia Airlines took off at 0:41 a.m. from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Its destina- tion: Beijing. On board were 239 people. In the early morning, the airline announced that the aircraft had disappeared. The greatest mystery in the history of modern civil aviation had begun... What happened to flight MH 370? Was it shot down by a missile? Was it hijacked and its passengers put to sleep, and did it crash into the waters of the Indian Ocean after a long voyage? Through fiction, Jean-Louis Baroux, one of the best international aviation specialists, puts forward a totally new theory to explain this mystery: what if this crash resulted from a fight to the death between two airlines? Because he knows air transport operators so well, Jean-Louis Baroux has penned a suspense story pulling together adventures and espio- nage, money and honor. Detectives, secret agents, emirs, CEOs, pilots, air traffic controllers and insurers: all the actors of this little known world meet up in a dramatic and captivating face-off.

  • What would our planet be like if women were in charge ? Would it be different ? What would be the fundamental changes to our lives ? These are the questions Muriel de Saint Sauveur poses to one hundred economically, politically and culturally prominent women, coming from thirty-three countries across five different continents.
    Amongst them are the Chinese writer and photographer Xiao Hui Wang ; Assana Sangare-Ouattara, deputy of the National Assembly in the Ivory Coast ; the Egyptian businesswoman Loula Zaklama and also French women including Françoise Gri, president of Manpower France and Marie-Jo Zimmermann, president of the French National Assembly´s delegation on women´s rights and gender equality.
    More involved, more ambitious and less egocentric, their priorities are different to those of men. Economy and strategy are not at the top of their lists, instead they view education as an essential objective towards social emancipation and living together in harmony. Their optimistic perception of the world envisions an organisation different to that of our society today.
