MISTOPHOROI EX IBERIAS (EBOOK)

OSANNA EDIZIONI

Resumen del eBook

ITALIANOLe informazioni ricavate dalle fonti classiche presentano i mercenari ispanici come personaggi secondari, relegati ad alcune vicende siciliane e, apparentemente, senza particolari abilita al di fuori della forza guerriera. Nessuno ne ricorda attivita in altre regioni, ne il ritorno nella penisola iberica. Ciononosta nte, la ricerca ha riconosciuto loro un ruolo notevole, in un primo momento fondamentale per lacculturazione delle societa ispaniche, ma successivamente marginale. A partire da queste premesse, il libro presenta unanalisi critica di una serie di testimonianze archeologiche di carattere militare, nella penisola iberica e al di fuori di essa, allo scopo di ridefinire la figura del mistophoros ispanico. Lo studio considera diversi oggetti, dalla Corsica alla Grecia, per avvicinarsi alle modalita di interazione del mercenario ispanico e valutarne quindi il ritorno nella penisola iberica. Infine, sulla base di esempi concreti viene presentato limpatto di questa esperienza mediterranea sulla trasformazione di alcune fra le loro armi.SPAGNOLOLas informaciones extraidas de las fuentes clasicas presentan al mercenario hispano como un personaje secundario, limitado a algun episodio siciliano y aparentemente sin capacidades singulares mas alla de su fuerza de combate. Nada citan sobre su actividad en otros territorios, ni de su regreso a la Peninsula Iberica. Con ello, la investigacion les ha otorgado un protagonismo cambiante, primero fundamental para la aculturacion de las sociedades hispanas y luego un papel anecdotico. Con este punto de partida, el libro presenta un analisis critico de una serie de evidencias arqueologicas de caracter militar en la Peninsula Iberica y fuera de ella para redimensionar la figura del mistophoros hispano. El estudio analiza casos, desde Corcega hasta Grecia, para acercarnos al modo como interactuo el mercenario hispano, para luego considerar su regreso a la Peninsula Iberica y ver con ejemplos concretos el impacto de esta experiencia mediterranea en la transformacion de algunas de sus armas.Raimon Graells i Fabregat (1980), ha conseguito il dottorato di ricerca presso lUniversita di Lleida (2009) e dal 2010 e ricercatore presso il Romisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum di Mainz, dove ha iniziato la sua attivita grazie a una borsa post-dottorale della fondazione Alexander von Humboldt. Il suo ambito di ricerca include insenso latola protostoria della penisola iberica e linterazione delle sue societa con quelle del Mediterraneo. Ai suoi interessi di studio sulla cultura materiale e sui contesti funerari ha inoltre aggiunto aspetti relativi alla guerra e allarmamento nel Mediterraneo, con una predilezione particolare per lo studio delle panoplie difensive (elmi e corazze).

Fecha Lanzamiento: 12/03/2015
GEORGE ORWELL
AUTOR-EDITOR

Resumen del eBook

Nineteen Eighty-Four, sometimes published as 1984, is a dystopian novel by English author George Orwell published in 1949. The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance and public manipulation, dictate d by a political system euphemistically named English Socialism (or Ingsoc in the governments invented language, Newspeak) under the control of a privileged Inner Party elite, that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as"thoughtcrimes".The tyranny is epitomised by Big Brother, the quasi-divine Party leader who enjoys an intense cult of personality but who may not even exist. The Party"seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power."The protagonist of the novel, Winston Smith, is a member of the Outer Party, who works for the Ministry of Truth (or Minitrue), which is responsible for propaganda and historical revisionism. His job is to rewrite past newspaper articles, so that the historical record always supports the party line. Smith is a diligent and skillful worker but he secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion against Big Brother.As literary political fiction and dystopian science-fiction, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic novel in content, plot and style. Many of its terms and concepts, such as Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, Room 101, telescreen, 2 + 2 = 5 and memory hole, have entered everyday use since its publication in 1949. Nineteen Eighty-Four popularised the adjective Orwellian, which describes official deception, secret surveillance and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state. In 2005, the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. It was awarded a place on both lists of Modern Library 100 Best Novels, reaching number 13 on the editors list, and 6 on the readers list. In 2003, the novel was listed at number 8 on the BBCs survey The Big Read. ... Leer resumen completo

HISTORY OF SCOTLAND (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 08/07/2015
AUTOR-EDITOR

Resumen del eBook

If we could see in a magic mirror the country now called Scotland as it was when the Romans under Agricola (81 A.D.) crossed the Border, we should recognise little but the familiar hills and mountains. The rivers, in the plains, overflowed their present banks; dense forests of oak and pine, haunted by great red deer, elks, and boars, covered land that has long been arable. There were lakes and lagoons where for centuries there have been fields of corn. On the oldest sites of our towns were groups of huts made of clay and wattle, and dominated, perhaps, by the large stockaded house of the tribal prince. In the lochs, natural islands, or artificial islets made of piles (crannogs), afforded standing-ground and protection to villages, if indeed these lake-dwellings are earlier in Scotland than the age of war that followed the withdrawal of the Romans. ...

GORDON KERR
OMNIPRESS

Resumen del eBook

The story of monarchy in Europe is a long and extremely bloody one, fraught with appalling violence, scandal and controversy. The position of monarch was once one of absolute power granted by God. Royalty was considered closer todivinity than to the masses. Today this notion is generally frowned upon, and the royal families of Europe spend all their time trying to convey a sense that their members are just like us. Compare the lives of Charles I of Spain, Henry VIII and Queen Victoria and learn about Elizabeth Is role in defending England against the Spanish Armada. Discover the truth about King George III, was he truly mad or was he being poisoned? How did Marie Antoinette, a 14-year-old from Vienna become the Queen of France? This book answers all these questions and many more as it charts the major events in the monarchy of Europe from the very beginnings to the present day.Contents:Charlemagne to Medieval KingdomsRenaissance MonarchsRise of EmpireRebellion and RevolutionThe Struggle to Survive ...

Fecha Lanzamiento: 01/12/2012
ROBIN EDIZIONI

Resumen del eBook

This essay represents the first organic study about Jerry Goldsmith (1929-2004), emblematic American film composer in the second half of the 20th century. Goldsmith was also a brilliant conductor. He conducted his music, but also of other composers, such as those of his mentor Alex North. He has worked with several great or chestras, first of all the London Symphony Orchestra. His personality is framed within the cinematic production system in which he worked on about fifty years, collaborating with directors like John Huston, John Frankenheimer, Franklin J.Schaffner, Roman Polanski, Joe Dante, Richard Donner, Paul Verhoeven and many others. He was under contract with the major Studios in Hollywood, in particular Universal and 20th Century-Fox. Many times nominated for an Academy Award, he won once, in 1976, for"The Omen"score. The study examines some aspects of film music composition (orchestration, relationship with directors) in relation to such movies as"Planet of the Apes","Patton","Chinatown","The Wind and the Lion","The Omen","Logans Run","Alien","Star Trek: The Motion Picture","Poltergeist","Gremlins","Legend","Total Recall","Basic Instinct","L.A.Confidential","Hollow Man". In appendix: an overview on the rejected scores case and the composers catalog of works.The author: Mauricio Dupuis was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1974. He has a degree in Musicology in Cremona, a branch of the University of Pavia, Italy. He also works as a literary curator for Italian publishers.

Violinista e compositore austriaco, uno dei piu grandi e famosi musicisti del suo tempo, Fritz Kreisler venne chiamato a servire il suo paese sul fronte orientale della Grande Guerra. Partecipo alla battaglia di Lemberg, in Galizia, una delle piu cruente e sanguinose di tutto il conflitto e, dopo quattro settimane, venne fe rito e congedato con onore. Detto questo vivido ricordo delle sue avventure che rappresenta uno dei racconti di guerra piu belli e toccanti che siano mai stati scritti. Il libro, che viene pubblicato in Italia per la prima volta, offre al lettore una prospettiva unica e una toccante presa diretta, quasi cinematografica, su quanto avvenne agli uomini e agli eserciti sul fronte orientale.Per ventuno giorni vissi senza mai togliermi i vestiti, dormii sullerba bagnata o nel fango, o nella melma, e con niente addosso se non la mia mantella. Una notte, mentre dormivamo, ci inzuppammo fino alle ossa a causa di piogge torrenziali. Non uno di noi si mosse. Molte cose considerate necessita, semplicemente furono soppresse dalla nostra esistenza. Uno spazzolino da denti non era neppure immaginabile. Mangiavamo istintivamente con le mani. Sembravamo tanti lupi irsuti e magri. Ricordo di esser andato avanti per piu di tre giorni senza mettere tra i denti un qualsiasi tipo di cibo, e molte volte dovemmo leccare la rugiada dallerba per mancanza dacqua. Una certa fierezza nasce in te, unindifferenza assoluta per qualsiasi cosa il mondo possieda, tranne che per il dovere di combattere. Stai mangiando un tozzo di pane e un uomo viene ucciso nella trincea accanto a te. Tu lo guardi con calma per un attimo, e poi ti rimetti a mangiare. Perche non dovresti? Non ce niente da fare. Alla fine tu parli della tua propria morte con cosi poco entusiasmo come lo faresti per un impegno a pranzo. Non ce piu niente nella tua mente, se non il fatto che orde di uomini a cui appartieni stanno combattendo contro orde di altri uomini, e il vostro lato deve vincere. ... Leer resumen completo
