  • Breve historia de RomaBreve historia de Roma L鏕ez, Miguel 聲gel Novillo Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2017/2/28出版

    Una s璯tesis magistral de la totalidad de la vida romana, desde su fundaci鏮 hasta su ocaso a manos de los b嫫baros. En esta obra, Miguel 聲gel Novillo L鏕ez, emprende la necesaria labor de resumir los quince siglos de la existencia de la cultura romana con fin de crear una obra altamente did塶tica, amena y rigurosa. Una ventana limpia a la civilizaci鏮 que sent?las bases de nuestro modo de vida actual. El autor traza un amplio recorrido cronol鏬ico para explicar las bases para la fundaci鏮 de Roma y el posterior devenir de este pueblo desde la monarqu燰 a la replica y, por timo, al imperio que ser?consumido por la corrupci鏮 y la decadencia. Pero lo verdaderamente fundamental de la obra no es, pese a ser de gran relevancia, el amplio arco cronol鏬ico que recorre, su punto fuerte es que ofrece una mirada alternativa y sobradamente detallada de la historia romana. No se centra en el devenir pol癃ico y militar de la Ciudad Eterna, sino que se sumerge en cuestiones que son tambi幯 fundamentales para comprender su historia como: la evoluci鏮 de la esclavitud, los conflictos entre patricios y plebeyos, las magistraturas y las asambleas, la religi鏮, la numism嫢ica o la literatura romana. Una obra esencial y necesaria para la comprensi鏮 de esta porci鏮 fundamental de la historia universal. Grabada para ser disfrutada tanto por los investigadores especializados, como por los legos, ya que no demanda un vasto conocimiento previo. Breve Historia de Roma nos sumerge, a lo largo del tiempo y del espacio, en la vida cotidiana de la Ciudad Eterna.

  • HumansHumans Phillips, Tom Blackstone Audio Inc 出版 2019/5/7出版

    An exhilarating history of humankind, chronicling thousands of years of trial and error-but mostly error-in the rise of civilizationModern humans have come a long way in the seventy thousand years they've walked the earth. Art, science, culture, trade-on the evolutionary food chain, we're true winners. But it hasn't always been smooth sailing, and sometimes-just occasionally-we've managed to truly f*ck things up.Weaving together history, science, politics and pop culture, Humans offers a panoramic exploration of humankind in all its glory, or lack thereof. From Lucy, our first ancestor, who fell out of a tree and died, to General Zhou Shou of China, who stored gunpowder in his palace before a lantern festival, to the Austrian army that attacked itself one drunken night, to the most spectacular fails of the present day, Phillips reveals how even the most mundane mistakes can shift the course of civilization as we know it. Lively, wry and brimming with brilliant insight, this unique compendium offers a fresh take on world history and is one of the most entertaining reads of the year.

  • UndefeatedUndefeated Sloan, Bill Tantor Media Inc 出版 2012/4/24出版

    Called ?a master of the combat narrative" (The Dallas Morning News), author Bill Sloan captures the valor, fortitude, and suffering of the American defenders of the Philippines as no other author has. Abandoned by their government, the men and women of the American garrison struggled against impossible military odds, rampant disease, and slow starvation to delay inevitable surrender by the largest American military force ever. Rather than picturing these defenders as little more than helpless victims of an overwhelmingly powerful and sadistic enemy-as most previous books about the Philippines campaign have done-Undefeated credits American troops with the unexcelled heroism and indomitable spirit they displayed under the worst imaginable conditions.Interwoven throughout this panoramic narrative are the harrowing personal experiences of dozens of American soldiers, airmen, and Marines. Sloan also provides intimate, in-depth profiles of General Douglas MacArthur, who evacuated to Australia as the situation on Bataan worsened, and of General Jonathan Wainwright, who succeeded him as top U.S. commander in the Philippines and himself became a prisoner of the Japanese.

  • Season of the WitchSeason of the Witch Talbot, David Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2012/5/8出版

    Season of the Witch is the first book to fully capture the dark magic of San Francisco in this breathtaking period, when the city radically changed itself ?and then revolutionized the world. The cool gray city of love was the epicenter of the 1960s cultural revolution. But by the early 1970s, San Francisco ecstatic experiment came crashing down from its starry heights. The city was rocked by savage murder sprees, mysterious terror campaigns, political assassinations, street riots, and finally a terrifying sexual epidemic. No other city endured so many calamities in such a short time span.David Talbot takes us deep into the riveting story of his city ascent, decline, and heroic recovery. He draws intimate portraits of San Francisco legendary demons and saviors: Charles Manson, Patty Hearst and the Symbionese Liberation Army, Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin, Bill Graham, Herb Caen, the Cockettes, Harvey Milk, Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple, Joe Montana and the Super Bowl 49ers. He reveals how the city emerged from the trials of this period with a new brand of an Francisco values,?including gay marriage, medical marijuana, immigration sanctuary, universal health care, recycling, renewable energy, consumer safety, and a living wage mandate. Considered radical when they were first introduced, these ideas have become the bedrock of decent society in many parts of the country, and exemplify the ways that the city now inspires us toward a live-and-let-live tolerance, a shared sense of humanity, and an openness to change.As a new generation of activists and dreamers seeks its own path to a more enlightened future, Season of the Witch ?with its epic tale of the wild and bloody birth of San Francisco values ?offers both inspiration and cautionary wisdom.

  • Embracing DefeatEmbracing Defeat Dower, John W. Blackstone Audio Inc 出版 2008/5/1出版

    In this illuminating study, Dower explores the ways in which the shattering defeat of the Japanese in World War II, followed by over six years of American military occupation, affected every level of Japanese society. He describes the countless ways in which the Japanese met the challenge of starting overrom top-level manipulations concerning the fate of Emperor Hirohito to the hopes, fears, and activities of ordinary men and women in every walk of life. He shows us the intense and turbulent interplay of conqueror and conquered, West and East, in a way no Western historian has done before. This is a fascinating portrait of an extraordinary moment in history, when new values warred with the old, and early ideals of demilitarization and radical reform were soon challenged by the United States?decision to incorporate Japan in the Cold War Pax Americana.

  • Bible and SwordBible and Sword Tuchman, Barbara Wertheim Blackstone Audio Inc 出版 2009/11/1出版

    Two-time Pulitzer-Prize winning historian Barbara Tuchman explores the complex relationship of Britain to Palestine that led to the founding of the modern Jewish state--and to many of the problems that plague the Middle East today.From early times the British people have been drawn to the Holy Land through two major influences: the translation of the Bible into English and, later, the imperial need to control the road to India and access to the oil in the Middle East. Under these influences, one cultural and the other political, countless Englishmenilgrims, crusaders, missionaries, merchants, explorers, and surveyorsave made their way to the land of the ancient Hebrews.With the lucidity and vividness that characterizes her work, Barbara Tuchman brings to life the development of these twin motiveshe Bible and the swordn the consciousness of the British people, until they were finally brought together at the end of World War I when Britain's conquest of Palestine from the Turks and the solemn moment of entering Jerusalem were imminent. Requiring a gesture of matching significance, that event evoked the Balfour Declaration of 1917, establishing a British-sponsored national home for the modern survivors of the people of the Old Testament.In her account, first published in 1956, Ms. Tuchman demonstrates that the seeds of today's troubles in the Middle East were planted long before the first efforts at founding a modern state of Israel.

  • Anonymous Shake-SpeareAnonymous Shake-Speare Kreiler, Kurt Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2012/4/1出版

    William Shakespeare had nothing to do with the actor and money lender William Shaksper from Stratford-upon-Avon. The man behind the nom de plum "William Shakespeare" was, in fact, a very well educated aristocrat who often frequented the court of Elizabeth and whose real name was Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford. The dramas of Shakespeare were not written for the Globe Theatre but for the Queen's court. The dramatist Ben Jonson published the Shakespearian works and saw to it that a monument, with a bust of the "marionette dramatist?William Shaksper was erected in the church of Stratford-upon-Avon.These astonishing theories are not the theme of a fictional work. They are based on a diligently researched academic biography of the author, albeit a biography that could have provided stories for a dozen novels.
