    L'Israël dessinée dans les médias, trop souvent réduite au conflit israélo-palestinien qui exacerbe le monde entier ne correspond pas toujours à l'Israël de Michel Kichka dont il connaît le peuple, Falafel sauce piquante est le récit autobiographique romancé de son rapport à ce pays. Quarante-quatre années de vie adulte à Jérusalem racontées à travers ses rencontres, ses souvenirs, les événements politiques, une vie sur une terre de conflits, complexe, mais choisie.

  • Deuxième Génération n'est pas un règlement de comptes avec l'Histoire. C'est un récit autobiographique à travers lequel Michel Kichka retrace les instantanés décisifs d'une enfance, d'une jeunesse et d'une vie passées dans l'ombre de la Shoah, du plat pays à la terre promise, entre cauchemars, souvenirs drôles, moments joyeux et actes de délivrance.
    Célèbre auteur israëlien et caricaturiste majeur, Kichka n'est pas seulement un fervent partisan de la paix au Proche-Orient, il est aussi le fils d'un homme qui fut l'unique survivant de sa famille après la guerre. À 20 ans, son père est revenu dans sa Belgique natale. Il y eut deux filles et deux garçons. Et un vécu si pesant que ses enfants n'ont eu de cesse de vouloir s'en émanciper, chacun à sa façon.

  • Vous savez ce que sont un flingue, un poulet, des godasses mais connaissez-vous le sens de baltringue, boloss, daron et téma ?Pour livrer les ficelles et secrets de fabrication de l'argot, Karin Le Bescont a choisi pour vous plus de soixante mots. Certains relèvent de l'argot classique passé dans le langage courant, d'autres, plus actuels, appartiennent au parler des jeunes. Les ficelles sont historiques, lexicales ou culturelles. Kichka a réussi la prouesse d'illustrer avec humour et délicatesse tous ces mots qui font la saveur de la langue française.

  • Préface de Plantu. Kichka a exprimé son art sur de nombreux supports :
    Publicités, bandes dessinées, livres pour enfants. Au début des années 1990, il devient dessinateur de presse et publie dans Yedioth Aharonot, Courrier International, L'Arche et sur le site du New York Times. Il est aussi présent à l'antenne sur la 2e et la 1ère chaîne d'Israël et quotidiennement à " Kiosque " sur TV5 Monde. En 2007 Kichka, président de l'association des cartoonistes israéliens, inaugure le Musée National du Cartoon et de la BD à Holon. Engagé dans le mouvement pacifiste israélien, il est impliqué activement dans l'initiative " Cartooning for Peace ", fondée par Plantu en 2006 sous l'égide de l'ONU. Ils sillonnent ensemble le monde avec leurs collègues palestiniens, algériens, égyptiens, libanais, iraniens, européens et américains afin d'accompagner des expositions et d'animer des débats publics. Par son travail, Michel Kichka cherche à faire du dessin de presse un instrument de tolérance, de réconciliation et de paix. Près de 200 dessins sont reproduits en couleur.
    Michel Kichka est un dessinateur né en Belgique en 1954. Dans sa jeunesse il fut très marqué par les grands noms de l'âge d'or de la BD franco-belge :
    Hergé, Franquin, Morris, Gotlib ... Il s'installe en Israël en 1974 et enseigne aujourd'hui la BD à la célèbre Académie Bezalel de Jérusalem dont il est diplômé.

  • Head injury affects approximately 1 in 300 families in England and Wales. It happens 'out of the blue' - without warning and therefore can be a bewildering and frightening experience, and frequently has a dramatic and sometimes devastating effect on the lives of the people involved. The sudden onset and the uncertainty surrounding recovery means that head injury often presents families with a wide array of emotions such as fear, guilt and sadness. With no previous experiences to guide them, people with head injury and their families can feel overwhelmed.

    This book begins with essential information about head injury including basic knowledge about the brain and how it is damaged. The book goes on to explore typical problems associated with a head injury and how to cope with specific issues. The third section provides support and guidance about how to deal with the long term consequences of a head injury, including information on where to find further support. Head Injury: The Facts is a family guide to understanding and coping with the practical and emotional problems that head injury brings.

  • The past 30 years have seen the field of clinical neuropsychology grow to become an influential discipline within mainstream clinical psychology and an established component of most professional courses. It remains one of the fastest growing specialities within mainstream clinical psychology, neurology, and the psychiatric disciplines. Substantially updated to take account of these rapid developments, the new edition of this successful handbook provides a practical guide for those interested in the professional application of neuropsychological approaches and techniques in clinical practice.

    With chapters by leading specialists, it demonstrates the contribution that neuropsychological approaches can make to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a range of brain disorders, as well as addressing the special considerations when treating children and the elderly. As before, the book is divided into 10 sections, covering everything from methodological and conceptual issues, developmental and paediatric neuropsychology, funcional neuroanatomy, and the historical context.
    Throughout, the content draws on contemporary neuroscientific techniques, focusing on the methods of functional imaging, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and cognitive rehabilitation. It also provides background information on laboratory and research techniques, as well as covering relevant neurology and psychiatry.

    The book will be essential for trainee neuropsychologists, students and teachers in the clinical and cognitive neurosciences/psychology, neurobiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists.

  • This is an autobiographical tale in which Michel Kichka goes back over the significant moments of a childhood, an adolescence, and a life overshadowed by the Holocaust, from Belgium to The Promised Land, from nightmares to funny anecdotes, moments of joy and liberation.

  • Acclaimed political cartoonist and comic book author Michel Kichka (Second Generation) brings us the fascinating, informative, and uplifting autobiographical tale of his love affair with Israel, a land he was inspired to move to at the age of twenty. From culture shock and Israeli customs to the mandatory military service, from art school to political conflict and human tragedies, he delivers a richly detailed account of his life as an artist, family man, peace advocate and Belgian Jew turned Israeli, living in the beautiful and troubled city of Jerusalem.
