ALFAGUARA, 2012

Resumen del eBook

¿Quéprecio hay que pagar para dar una vuelta de timón y decidirse a vivir los propios sueños?Aunque Pablo Simó quiere construir la torre de sus sueños, se limita a dibujarla: hace veinte años que trabaja en un estudio de arquitectura que no puede o no quiere dejar. Veinte años son también los que lleva casado con Laura, a q uien sólo lo unen la costumbre y una hija típicamente adolescente.Cuando una joven llegue inesperadamente al estudio buscando a Nelson Jara, comenzará a revelarse la trama del secreto en la que Simó está implicado junto a su jefe y una compañera de trabajo. La aparición de la muchacha y las derivaciones de ese hecho del pasado abrirán una grieta en la precaria estabilidad del arquitecto, que verá derrumbarse una a una las certezas que lo sostuvieron hasta el momento.La autora de Las viudas de los jueves demuestra una vez más su capacidad para construir personajes y contar historias en las que el suspenso no impide la pintura social ni la crítica. Las grietas de Jara es, en ese sentido, una reflexión acerca del matrimonio y la crisis de la mediana edad, y las dificultades de vivir en un mundo donde las reglas las imponen los más fuertes. Una novela que inquieta con la pregunta de si para dar una vuelta de timón y navegar hacia otro rumbo, no será necesario a veces dejar de lado la inocencia. ... Leer resumen completo

Resumen del eBook

This book offers a new way of interpreting contemporary Indian fiction, by analysing Shashi Tharoors The Great Indian Novel (I989). Unlike most readings of postcolonial narratives which tend to be articulated in dialogue with postmodern and potentially Eurocentric notions such as historiographic metafictionor the re-writing of the"classics", this book discusses The Great Indian Novel in terms of its rich pre-colonial and pre-modern heritage. Thus, The Great Indian Novel is read here in dialogue with a long South Asian tradition of playful retellings of the Mahabharata and Ramayana cycles. ... Leer resumen completo

LO QUE NO EXISTE, 2012

Resumen del eBook

You Can Do It! es el resultado de la observación, durante numerosos años, de los fallos más frecuentes fundamentalmente en el ámbito de la pronunciación- que cometen los españoles cuando hablan en inglés. Su autora, Helena Kurçab, bajo el sello de The English Coach (Jacci), ha dedicado años a la identificación de estos erro res y a la plasmación de trucos para que las personas hispanohablantes adquieran la soltura que necesitan para hablar y pronunciar bien en inglés. El libro incluye un CD con audio grabado por la propia autora.En You Can Do It!, la profesora y coach- ofrece una serie de sencillas reglas que ilustra con frases llamativas y fáciles de recordar. La palabra umbrella (paraguas) es una de las que más se vale la autora para enseñar su método. Casi todas las personas la dicen bien. Sin embargo, cuando utilizan la letra u en otros contextos la pronuncian mal. ¿Por qué? Según la autora, porque nunca han dedicado tiempo a pensar y extrapolar los sonidos de las vocales.Todo estudiante de inglés y así lo plasma y explica la autora en el primer capítulo de su libro (y primer paso de su método)- debe estar animado para conseguir su objetivo y asegurarse de:-Conocerse a sí mismo y ser capaz de verbalizar el auténtico objetivo y motivo por el que quiere aprender inglés.-Creerse y autoconvencerse de que lo puede conseguir.-Conocer lo que realmente va a necesitar para alcanzar el objetivo marcado. Teniendo en cuenta criterios siempre claros y específicos.El segundo capítulo del libro se centra en los trucos para aprender a pronunciar bien. El tercer paso del método se centra en las claves para identificar nuestros errores, asimilarlos y poder subsanarlos.La autoraNacida en Escocia, de padre polaco y madre escocesa, Heléna Kurçab (The English Coach) creció en un hogar en el que el inglés no era la lengua nativa de sus dos padres ni de algunos de sus amigos. Siendo aún una niña su familia se trasladó a vivir a Australia, donde la autora siguió conviviendo con inmigrantes de numerosos países europeos que deseaban aprender el lenguaje de su nuevo país de adopción. Estas vivencias crearon en ella una compresión y empatía innata sobre el modo en el que se aprenden los idiomas, que creció junto a la pasión personal de Heléna Kurçab por el inglés. En el año 2005 la autora decidió cerrar el negocio de consultoría que tenía en Australia y se trasladó a vivir a España (Madrid). Desde ese momento ha centrado su vida profesional en ayudar a todos aquellos que desean llegar al punto más alto de su nivel de inglés, ayudándoles a dar el salto que realmente necesitan para que hablen bien inglés. La gente y su potencial son mi pasión. Así resume Heléna Kurçab su anhelo y particular forma de vida.Incluye enlace descargable audio formato MP3 ... Leer resumen completo

Fecha Lanzamiento: 30/06/2011
CONSEJO SUPERIOR DE INVESTIGACIONES CIENTIFICAS, 2011

Resumen del eBook

La acuñación de moneda es, junto con la escritura, uno de los grandes inventos de la historia de la humanidad. La escritura ha sido esencial en la transmisión de ideas y conocimientos a través del tiempo, y el dinero ha jugado un papel muy importante en la fermentación de la evolución política y social de los grupos humanos . Muy pocas cosas han condicionado la economía de manera más directa que la moneda, con sus efectosconcomitantes sobre las ideologías políticas de nuestro universo. Hemos confirmado que la invención del dinero no supuso una evolución lineal de la economía proto-monetaria a la monetaria, y también que no se llevó a cabo al mismo ritmo en los diferentes espacios culturales del Mediterráneo. Desde la invención de la moneda en Lidia, al final del siglo VII a C, a la monetización de los hispanos del norte-oeste, o del interior de la Galia y Germania en la época de Augusto, 600 años que abarcan toda una cadena de acontecimientos históricos importantes tuvo que pasar a la monetización de ser aceptados en las economías sociales, culturales y políticas, ya que el uso del dinero, tal vez no en su origen, pero sí después, ayudó a las poleis en sus intentos de alcanzar el equilibrio social. De hecho, doscientos años después que se inventara el dinero, Aristóteles seguía filosofando sobre esto, y escribió sobre las relaciones de intercambio entre las comunidades, el derecho a la reciprocidad que mantiene la sociedad civil, sobre la base de la proporción y no de la igualdad... es el objeto que marca una justicia equitativa y que expresa la palabra nomisma, que significa"lo que se debe","lo que es proporcional","la medida correcta". ...

La literatura no es agotable, por la suficiente y simple razón de que un solo libro no lo es. El libro no es un ente incomunicado: es una relación, es un eje de innumerables relaciones.Este feliz volumen, inédito como tal hasta hoy, se compone de dos libros dados a imprenta con más de un cuarto de siglo de diferencia, la qu e separa 1925 de 1952. No obstante, sus ensayos pertenecen a un mismo diálogo, el de Borges con la historia literaria, el del lector con el escritor. De entre ellos, Menoscabo y grandeza de Quevedo señala los rostros múltiples del autor; La nadería de la personalidad quiebra el conjunto del yo; La flor de Coleridge reivindica la supremacía de la tradición; y Kafka y sus precursores, por ejemplo, cuestiona el sentido de las influencias. ...

MUJER Y CAMBIO SOCIAL EN LA EDAD MODERNA (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 01/09/2011
, 2009

Resumen del eBook

La mujer ha sido el motor de los cambios sociales durante la Edad Moderna hasta nuestros días. Esta es la tesis principal de este libro, tercero que sobre la historia de la mujer ha escrito su autora, desde una perspectiva ciertamente original e integradora y con un estilo ágil y comunicativo. La primera parte del libro ana liza la importancia de la mujer para la sociedad moderna, en el que la familia y la religión juegan un papel fundamental. Continúa destacando a aquellas mujeres que traspasaron las fronteras de lo privado a las que que la sociedad les tenía confinadas, pero sin aceptar ese principio básico de la Modernidad que suponía disociar la ética del trabajo, la política o la cultura. Finalmente, desde esa perspectiva, aborda la situación actual de la mujer y la sociedad, radicalmente diversa desde la incorporación de la mujer al mercado laboral, y critica sin ambages el modo como se llevó a cabo. La mujer ha entrado en un mundo cuyas coordenadas de interpretación y acción, cuyos márgenes y características siguen siendo en gran medida masculinos. Por su parte, los hombres han ido permitiendo tal transformación, pero, consciente o inconscientemente, reclaman que las mujeres que entran en su territorio adopten por ello sus reglas de juego. Algo que por fuerza resulta problemático, de forma particularmente acuciante para aquellas mujeres que tienen hijos ---o quieren tenerlos--- y no desean renunciar a ellos ni a su educación y cuidado. Y algo que, como veremos, no sucedió en épocas anteriores en las que también hubo cambios, pero en las que no se vieroncontradicciones allí donde solo había contrastes. ... Leer resumen completo

GROWING UP LEVITTOWN (EBOOK)

STEVE BERGSMAN

Resumen del eBook

One of the most successful and daring real estate developments in U.S. history was the building of Levittown, Long Island, in 1947. Although it became the prototype modern suburb, it was more reviled than appreciated during the first three decades of its existence.Intellectuals and critics attacked Levittown unmercifully, e ssentially calling it a boring environment that crushed the spirit of its population. Popular authors, such as Richard Yates, author of Revolutionary Road, used the modern suburb as a metaphor for creative sterility.When Pete Seeger sang, Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of tickytacky; Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same, everyone knew he was talking about Levittown and all that it begot.As it turned out, the intellectuals and the critics got it all so very wrong from the start.Not only wasnt Levittown dullsville, but a surprising number of creative people passed through here, including songwriter Ellie Greenwich, singers Eddie Money and Billy Joel, Zippie The Pinhead cartoonist Bill Griffith, childrens book illustrator Jon Buller, radio host John Gambling, TV political commentator Bill OReilly, Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison of the Velvet Underground (the house band for Andy Warhols factory), and Steve Bergsman, journalist and author.Steve Bergsman grew up in Levittown during those early years and looking back now as an aging baby boomer, he thought it a wonderful place to have spent a childhood. Growing Up Levittown: In a Time of Conformity, Controversy and Cultural Crisis is a love letter to this quintessential suburb.Juxtaposed against a prevailing history of criticism and literary slander, Growing Up Levittown is a memoir of a happy childhood. ...

Resumen del eBook

A Woman Denied... The Early Years is a biography of one beautiful woman named Raymond. Raymond was born in Pretoria. She spent a few years of her childhood in Soweto, Johannesburg. Her father, a stubborn traditionalist, had always wanted a boy. With two little girls in the house, he had reason to yearn for a little boy. Whe n Raymond came, all wishes and hopes, and the pride and joy were shattered as the baby came with mixed gender. Neither could the baby be a boy or a girl... but subsequent domination from an abusive and drunkard father saw that the baby would lead life as a boy. Needles to say, it put paid to Raymonds mother, Evelyns desire to raise a happy and healthy baby... as simply a baby she loved.The account of the times and life of this wonderful and humble child is a tear-jerking story. Get in her shoes and walk through her trials and tribulations as she grows through life in the 70s and 80s. Experience the hurt and the abuses she had gone through; cry with her as all undeniable signs of womanhood surface.... And at the same time think that there are hundreds, possibly thousands, of people like Raymond who the world keeps denying their true identities and existence. For Raymond, it was not a matter of choosing a specific gender - it was a fight to live life to the next day as she was denied to be a woman.I had known Raymond personally for over twenty-five years. As an investigative writer, I was always troubled by the way the world treated her. I was always at pains to justify my ignorance at doing nothing to change the life of this beautiful human being. Unable to keep quiet anymore, I began to investigate. Through most of the guilt and anguish that rocked Raymonds emotions, I was there, watching. Even when the inevitable moment came for her to publicly go out as a woman, I was there, too. The result is the heart-felt account of her life, as told by her over several years... This account of Raymonds life cover a period up to 1990, when she enters formal employment.In keeping with the spirit and celebration of women, take an opportunity to buy this book and read this fascinating yet sad and touching story of this denied woman. And whatever you do, wherever you are, promise not to ever treat another human being the way you would never wish to be treated. Treat everybody with respect, whether you approve of their lifestyle or not.

DIGITAL VIDEO PRODUCTION HANDBOOK (EBOOK)

Resumen del eBook

Do we really need another video book? Arent there enough books about this topic on the market already? Yes, there are excellent books about videography available. However, most of them are totally amateurish, some are too technical, and others are really outdated.If you are not an engineer or a technician and if you want t o break out of the boring amateur video status, you need a new How To book for video-makers with professional ambitions.Most photographers are not pure still-photographers anymore. Many journalists no longer work with words only. Advertising, marketing, public relations and communications people work nowadays more with video than ever before - in addition to workers in education, training and all kinds of instructional areas. And then there are colleges and universities teaching students who want to become professional media experts. Journalists, reporters, editors, camera operators, photographers and others belong to them.The digital explosion requires a new kind of thinking, a new style of presentation, and a new format of books. In the digital age, you cant teach video the same way you did it ten, twenty or thirty years ago.This is a didactically new, learning-focused approach to present all standard knowledge you need to know in order to write, produce, shoot and direct digital video. In addition to all technical and theoretical aspects of How To, the most important thing is the creators ability to tell a story. This starts with a verbal version and ends with the final video product. If you cant tell your story you cant do a convincing and impressive video (of your story).After teaching Filmmaking and Television fourteen semesters at a German college, my Textbook of Filmmaking (MediaBook Publishing) was first published 1978 and became - with the 7th edition in planning - the most successful textbook of its kind. The success of my book after thirty years still used at European Film Schools - taught me what is most important for your and what isnot.This is not to want you to do everything, not to be too technical and too detailed, not to want to impress people what you know. What I learned through my teaching and this book, such a book must contain everything you need for your job - but not more. If you want dig deeper into this matter, I offer you the literature they need. See chapter Recommended literature.This is especially true for most technical aspects of filmmaking with digital video. Digital technology changes virtually every six months, and so do gadgets in use. Therefore, I am not introducing specific camera models or post-production equipment. Manufacturers can do this job. This handbook introduces a general technology on the basis of specific equipment currently in use. As important the technical equipment is for the actual quality of the digital video product, it is just a tool in the creative process of a film or video. You must be able to use it to the last extent, but it is never the journey, its just the vehicle to bring you where you want to go. Period. ... Leer resumen completo
