SAINZ ANNE

Resumen del eBook

Anne Sainz nació en Liverpool en 1945 y nunca conoció a los Beatles aunque le hubiese encantado tener su propia banda de rock.

IF the English are singularly incurious about their Navy, that attitude must not be thought to imply neglect. On the contrary, it is a blend of admiration, respect, and, above all, confidence, induced very largely by the Navy itself. For so long has the Navy minded its own silent business that weotherwise so inquisitive a p eoplehave come to look upon it as beyond examination and (normally too eager to cut open the drum and explore its resources) trustfully to leave it to its own devices, conscious that those devices are wholly in our own interests.

Fecha Lanzamiento: 01/07/2014
JAMES R. SOFKA

Resumen del eBook

El propósito de este libro es examinar hasta qué punto las ideas de la Ilustración informaron la política de dos estadistas de los primeros años del siglo XIX: el príncipe Clemens Metternich de Austria y el tercer presidente de los Estados Unidos, Thomas Jefferson. Aunque habitualmente se ha considerado a Jefferson como rep resentante de una filosofía política típicamente ilustrada y a Metternich, por el contrario, como un reaccionario, las conclusiones de este estudio indican que hay que revisar esos estereotipos. El examen de las teorías políticas y de las fuentes históricas y documentales ha demostrado que Jefferson siguió una línea tradicional y conservadora en su política social, y que Metternich, por su parte, se adhirió a la idea kantiana de la federación europea, e intentó llevar a cabo una serie de proyectos de política interior de carácter innovador e ilustrado. ...
