THE BASQUE HISTORY OF THE WORLD
Fecha Lanzamiento: 13/11/2000
ARROW (RANDOM), 2000

Resumen del libro

'They are a mythical people, almost an imagined people, ' writes Mark K urlansky. Settled in seven provinces in a corner of France and Spain i n a land that is marked on no maps except their own, separated by the daunting Pyrenees Mountains, the Basques are a nation without a countr y with an ancient and dramatic story that illuminates Europe's own sag a. Signs of their civilisation exist well before the arrival of the Ro mans in 218 BC; many believe they are the original Europeans. Their an cient and forbidden tongue - Euskera - is equally mysterious: it is re lated to no other language on earth. Yet the Basques' contributions t o the world have been clear and remarkable. They have always been a pa radoxical blend of inbred tradition and cutting-edge internationalism. Prior to and during the age of exploration, they connected Europe to North and South America, Africa and Asia, and one of their own, Juan S ebastian de Elcano, was the first man to circumnavigate the globe in 1 522. Their influence has been felt in religion and in business: they w ere among the first capitalists, and later led the Industrial Revoluti on in southern Europe. Mark Kurlansky's passion for the Basque people and his exuberant eye for detail shine throughout. The book blends po litical, literary, and culinary history into a rich and heroic tale. ...

AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF CORDOBA
JOSE MANUEL VENTURA
ALMUZARA, 2005

Resumen del libro

Como afirma el prologuista de la presente obra —un intelectual serio y riguroso, reticente ante fáciles y huecas alabanzas—, no nos hallamos sin más ante una de tantas breves historias urbanas, género susceptible de caer a veces en la superficialidad de ciertas guías turística ilustradas o en el minucioso erudit ismo de librotes poco apropiados, por ello, para el gran público. No en vano, su autor es un historiador tan interesado en la investigación exhaustiva y detallada como en una divulgación de amplios vuelos donde el rigor y la corrección prosística no estén reñidos con la amenidad. Un cordobés que escribe con el mayor apego a su tierra tratando, por ello, de rehuir los tópicos del localismo, sin dejar de sacrificar la verdad a los vientos inconstantes de la fácil apología o las fantasías de exóticas ensoñaciones. La protagonista de este libro es una ciudad dotada, sin duda, de múltiples facetas y perfiles, capaces de arrebatar y encandilar a las almas atentas al paso del tiempo, a los adeptos de la evocación poética o al goce sensitivo. El propósito de la obra es trazar una pequeña semblanza, lo más exacta y completa posible, de la dilatada historia de Córdoba. Cada uno de los cuatro capítulo de los que consta (Antigüedad, períodos andalusí, bajomedieval-moderno y contemporáneo) subdivididos en diversos apartados y epígrafes, abordan las diferentes épocas vividas por una de las ciudades con un pasado más ilustre, rico y variado del mundo, fruto del asentamiento, convivencia, antagonismos e intercambios de diversas culturas que se entrelazaron, entre armonías y rupturas, en su devenir, desde los orígenes prehistóricos del poblamiento de su territorio a los umbrales del siglo XXI: pequeño asentamiento junto al río; émula de la roma Imperial como capital de la Bética; avanzada del lujo y exotismo oriental como corte de los emires y califas omeyas; ciudad de frontera con el reino nazarí; orlada de prestigiosos blasones nobiliarios ...

FROM MOBILIZATION TO CIVIL WAR: THE POLITICS OF POLARIZATION IN T HE SPANISH CITY OF GIJON, 1900-1937
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 1996

Resumen del libro

This is a social history of political polarisation as it evolved in one city over three and a half decades before the Spanish Civil War. As such it is a book about the long-term origins of the War as seen &@8216;from below&@8217;. More broadly it is an analysis of the evolution of political culture during the transition fro m elite to mass politics. The book focuses on the interplay between the three main forces that competed for political control: the conservative monarchist/Catholics, the democratic republicans, and the revolutionary trade movement. It is different from other Civil War studies, in trying to understand the relationship between organised political forces and the &@8216;masses&@8217; they sought to reach. In doing so it reveals a rich canvas of participants and activities, from trade unions and strikes to female consumer riots. ... Leer resumen completo

A HISTORY OF THE PENINSULAR WAR (VOL. III): SEPTEMBER 1809 TO DEC EMBER 1810, OCAÑA, BUSSACO, TORRES VEDRAS
CHARLES OMAN
GREENHILL BOOKS LIONEL LEVENTHAL LI, 2004

Resumen del libro

 Charles OmanThe 1807-1814 war in the lberian Peninsula was one of the most significant and influential campaigns of the Napoleonic Wars. Arising from Napoleon's strategic necessity to impose his rule over Portugal and Spain, it evolved into a constant drain on his resources, Sir Charles Oman's seven volume history of the campaign is an unrivalled and essential work. His extensive use and analysis of French, Spanish, Portuguese and British participants' accounts and archival material, together with his own inspection of the battlefields, provides a comprehensive and balanced account of this most important episode in Napoleonic military history. Volume III covers the period from September 1809 to December 1810, when the French were consolidating their hold on Spain, crushing resistance and attempting to drive the British out of Portugal. However, they could not wholly defeat their opponents. ... Leer resumen completo

THE POLITICS OF CONTEMPORARY SPAIN
SEBASTIAN (ED) BALFOUR
ROUTLEDGE, 2005

Resumen del libro

 Sebastian BalfourWhile Spain is now a well-established democracy closely integrated into the European Union, it has suffered from a number of severe internal problems such as corruption, discord between state and regional nationalism, and separatist terrorism. The Politics of Contemporary Spain charts the trajectory o f Spanish politics from the transition to democracy through to the present day, including the aftermath of the Madrid bombings of March 2004 and the elections that followed three days later. It offers new insights on the main political parties and the political system, on the monarchy, corruption, terrorism, regional and conservative nationalism, and on Spain's policies in the Mediterranean and the EU. It challenges many existing assumptions about politics in Spain, reaching beyond systems and practices to look at identities, political cultures and mentalities. It brings to bear on the analysis the latest empirical data and theoretical perspectives. ... Leer resumen completo

THE PLAZA MAYOR AND THE SHAPING OF BAROQUE MADRID
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2003

Resumen del libro

The Plaza Mayor and the Shaping of Baroque Madrid examines the transformation of Madrid from a secondary market town to the capital of the worldwide, Spanish Habsburg empire. Focusing on the planning and building of Madrid’s principal public monument, the Plaza Mayor, it is based on analysis of archival documents, arc hitectural drawings, as well as the surviving built fabric of the city itself. Jesús Escobar demonstrates how the shaping of the city square and its environs reflects the bureaucratic nature of government in Madrid chosen in 1561 to serve as a capital of Spain. He also examines the careful planning of the city, with particular regard to how the necessities of housing and public works that accompanied its new capital status were accommodated. The process reveals the sophistication of town planning in late sixteenth-century Spain and forces a reconsideration of Spanish urbanism within the contexts of contemporary European and Spanish colonial developments. ...

THE BASQUE COUNTRY: A CULTURAL HISTORY
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2007

Resumen del libro

The Basque Country is a land of fascinating paradoxes and enigmas. Home to one of Europe's oldest peoples and most mysterious languages, with a living folklore rich in archaic rituals and dances, it also boasts a dynamic modern energy, with the reinvention of Bilbao creating a model for the twenty-first-century city. In The Basque Country, Paddy Woodworth takes us on a sweeping tour of this enchanting land. We discover a small territory which abounds in big contrasts, ranging from moist green valleys to semi-desert badlands, from snowy sierras to sandy beaches, from harsh industrial landscapes to bucolic beech woods. The book reveals how this often idyllic scenery forms the backdrop for a land of ancient and modern culture, where Basque poets still compose spontaneous stanzas in public contests and where strange age-old sports--rock lifting, goose decapitation--are still held at fiestas. Likewise, the region has made important contributions to modern culture, through novelists like Bernardo Atxaga, sculptors like Eduardo Chillida, painters like Zuluoaga, and cineastes like Julio Medem. And of course Bilbao's flagship museum, the Guggenheim, designed by Frank O. Gehry, may be the best work of architecture of the last century. Here then is a marvelous guide to the culture and landscape of one of the most intriguing places on Earth. ... Leer resumen completo
