MIL DIAS DEL TERCIO NAVARRA
QUIRON EDICIONES, 2005

Resumen del libro

El autor define su obra como historia de “una guerra de un kilómetro de ancha”, refiriéndose a la amplitud de frente que por término medio cubría un Tercio de Requetés.En muy pocas ocasiones se ha salido de este marco, por considerar que dentro de él se desarrolla la historia del Tercio “Navarra”; pe ro esta limitada extensión es escenario suficientemente amplio para que en él se desarrollen los episodios que Emilio Herrera –actor en muchos de ellos– nos relata en un castellano sobrio y vigoroso, con un entusiasmo que llega a veces a la vehemencia. ...

COMPARATIVE POLITICS IN A GLOBALIZING WORLD
JEFFREY HAYNES
POLITY PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

This book offers an accessible and broadly conceived examination of the impact of globalization on comparative politics. Written in a lucid and lively style, it assumes no prior knowledge of either globalization or comparative politics, and is the ideal textbook for students who want to know more about these crucial topics. The world has changed substantially since the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. There is much debate - but little agreement - about what precisely has happened, and how it affects what goes on politically and economically within countries. At the centre of the debate are the forces and processes of globalization and how they impact on domestic outcomes in various kinds of countries. Comparative Politics in a Globalizing World poses and answers two key questions: ? How do various aspects of globalization affect outcomes within countries? ? What are the implications of globalization for our understanding of comparative politics? By focusing on three kinds of countries - established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies - Haynes explores how domestic outcomes are affected by contemporary globalization. Throughout the book, key topics are explained, including regionalization, economic globalization, the natural environment, political culture, regime change and democratization, political violence and terrorism, religion, human rights, and women and political participation. These themes are developed within a consistently comparative perspective. This volume will be of immense value to all those interested in one of the great debates of our time. It will be essential reading forstudents of comparative politics, international relations, and globalization. ... Leer resumen completo

DEATH OF A GENERATION DIEM AND JFK
HOWARD JONES
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

When John F. Kennedy was shot, millions were left to wonder how America, and the world, would have been different had he lived to fulfill the enormous promise of his presidency. For many historians and political observers, what Kennedy would and would not have done in Vietnam has been a source of enduring controversy. Now, based on convincing new evidence--including a startling revelation about the Kennedy administration's involvement in the assassination of Premier Diem--Howard Jones argues that Kennedy intended to withdraw the great bulk of American soldiers and pursue a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Vietnam. Drawing upon recently declassified hearings by the Church Committee on the U.S. role in assassinations, newly released tapes of Kennedy White House discussions, and interviews with John Kenneth Galbraith, Robert McNamara, Dean Rusk, and others from the president's inner circle, Jones shows that Kennedy firmly believed that the outcome of the war depended on the South Vietnamese. In the spring of 1962, he instructed Secretary of Defense McNamara to draft a withdrawal plan aimed at having all special military forces home by the end of 1965. The 'Comprehensive Plan for South Vietnam' was ready for approval in early May 1963, but then the Buddhist revolt erupted and postponed the program. Convinced that the war was not winnable under Diem's leadership, President Kennedy made his most critical mistake--promoting a coup as a means for facilitating a U.S. withdrawal. In the cruelest of ironies, the coup resulted in Diem's death followed by a state of turmoil in Vietnam that further obstructed disengagement. Still, these events only confirmed Kennedy's view about South Vietnam's inability to win the war and therefore did not lessen his resolve to reduce the U.S. commitment. By the end of November, however, the president was dead and Lyndon Johnson began his campaign of escalation. Jones argues forcefully that if Kennedy had not been assassinated, his withdrawal plan would have spared the lives of 58,000 Americans and countless Vietnamese. Written with vivid immediacy, supported with authoritative research, Death of a Generation answers one of the most profoundly important questions left hanging in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's death. Jones (Mutiny on the Amistad) delivers an informative narrative documenting in rather elaborate detail a po ... Leer resumen completo

THE LIGHTS THAT FAILED: EUROPEAN INTERNATIONAL HISTORY 1919-1933
ZARA STEINER
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

The peace treaties represented an almost impossible attempt to solve the problems caused by a murderous world war. In The Lights that Failed: European International History 1919-1933, part of the Oxford History of Modern Europe series, Steiner challenges the common assumption that the Treaty of Versailles led to the opening of a second European war. In a radically original way, this book characterizes the 1920s not as a frustrated prelude to a second global conflict but as a fascinating decade in its own right, when politicians and diplomats strove to re-assemble a viable European order. Steiner examines the efforts that failed but also those which gave hope for future promise, many of which are usually underestimated, if not ignored. She shows that an equilibrium was achieved, attained between a partial American withdrawal from Europe and the self-imposed constraints which the Soviet system imposed on exporting revolution. The stabilization painfully achieved in Europe reached it fragile limits after 1925, even prior to the financial crises that engulfed the continent. The hinge years between the great crash of 1929 and Hitler's achievement of power in 1933 devastatingly altered the balance between nationalism and internationalism. This wide-ranging study helps us grasp the decisive stages in this process. In a second volume, The Triumph of the Night , Steiner will examine the immediate lead up to the Second World War and its early years. ...indisputably the most detailed and authoritative single-volume account of European international history in the fifteen years following the end of the Frist World War...[this work] affirms Zara Steiner's status as the pre-eminent historian of inter-war international affairs. Martin Conway, EHR 494 Zara Steiner has produced a splendid volume, chock full of detail and with many thought-provoking insights. It will remain a classic for many years to come. For those studying international business history it will serve as an excellent background reference manual to the period... If one were to ask for more it would be the second volume in the same vein. Derek H. Aldcroft, Business History Zara Steiner's work has ensured that we will have to treat that neglected decade [the 1920s] with proper respect. She has told the story with impeccable scholarship, clarity and compassion ... Her book will rightly become the definitive work on the period. Margaret MacMillan, TLS ... Leer resumen completo

THE LION AND THE TIGER: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE BRITISH RAJ
DENIS JUDD
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

The British experience in India began in earnest over four hundred years ago, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. For many years the English interlopers and traders who made contact with the subcontinent were viewed by Indians as little more than pirates and potentially troublesome conquering barbarians. After a series o f titanic struggles against the French and various local rulers during the eighteenth century, by the end of the Napoleonic Wars Britain had gained mastery of the subcontinent. This period, and the century and a half that followed, saw two powerful cultures locked in an often bloody battle over political control, land, trade, and a way of life. Denis Judd tells the fascinating story of the remarkable British impact upon India. All aspects of this long and controversial relationship are discussed, such as the first tentative contacts between East and West, the foundation of the East India Company in 1600, the Victorian Raj in all its pomp and splendour, Gandhi's revolutionary tactics to overthrow the Raj and restore Indian to the Indians, and Lord Mountbatten's 'swift surgery of Partition' in 1947, creating the two independent Commonwealth states of India and Pakistan. Against this epic backdrop, and using many revealing contemporary accounts, Denis Judd explores the consequences of British rule for both rulers and ruled. Were the British intent on development or exploitation? Were they the 'civilizing' force they claimed? What were Britain's greatest legacies: democracy and the rule of law, or cricket and an efficient railway system? Easy answers are avoided in this immensely readable, lively, and authoritative book. ... Leer resumen completo

OVER HERE: THE FIRST WORLD WAR AND AMERICAN SOCIETY
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

The Great War of 1914-1918 confronted the United States with one of the most wrenching crises in the nation's history. It also left a residue of disruption and disillusion that spawned an even more ruinous conflict scarcely a generation later. Over Here is the single-most comprehensive discussion of the impact of World War I on American society. This 25th anniversary edition includes a new afterword from Pulitzer Prize-winning author David M. Kennedy, that explains his reasons for writing the original edition as well as his opinions on the legacy of Wilsonian idealism, most recently reflected in President George W. Bush's national security strategy. More than a chronicle of the war years, Over Here uses therecord of America's experience in the Great War as a prism through which to view early twentieth century American society. The ways in which America mobilized for the war, chose to fight it, and then went about the business of enshrining it in memory all indicate important aspects of enduring American character. An American history classic, Over Here reflects on a society's struggle with the pains of war, and offers trenchant insights into the birth of modern America. 'Probably the best, the coolest, the most objective and solid one volume it is now possible to write.'--The Historian 'A major contribution to the historiography of the war years.... At its most ambitious level, Over Here is intended to be read as a study in American national character.'--The Journal of American History 'A very careful and thoughtful study, fascinating in its insight, panoramic in its sweep.'--The American Historical Review 'This is one of those rare books rich with ideas that provide the mind with genuinely new perceptions.' --American Heritage ...

L'AGE DE LA CONVERSATION
GALLIMARD, 2005

Resumen del libro

Du règne de Louis XIII à la Révolution, la société française a élaboré un art de vivre dont la conversation fut l'ingrédient essentiel. Née comme un simple passe-temps, comme un jeu destiné au délassement et au plaisir, bientôt élevée au rang de rite cardinal de la société mondaine, elle s'ouvrit peu à peu à l'introspection, à l'histoire, à la réflexion philosophique et scientifique, au débat d'idées. Son théâtre privilégié était les « ruelles », puis les salons où la noblesse, ayant déposé les armes et exclue de la sphère politique, fondait désormais sa supériorité sur un code raffiné de bonnes manières et un idéal de perfection esthétique. Dans cet espace de liberté disjoint de la Cour, ce sont les femmes qui dictaient la règle du jeu et présidaient aux échanges entre mondains et gens de lettres, contribuant ainsi de façon décisive à la formation du français moderne, au développement de nouvelles formes littéraires, à la définition du goût. De la marquise de Rambouillet à Madame du Deffand et Julie de Lespinasse, en passant par la duchesse de Longueville, la marquise de Sévigné, Ninon de Lenclos, autant de figures emblématiques par lesquelles Benedetta Craveri s'est laissée guider pour retracer de l'intérieur, dans sa chatoyante diversité, l'histoire de cette société mondaine qui fut un phénomène unique en Europe. ...

THE REAL FIDEL CASTRO
FOREWORD BY JULIA E. SWEIG y LEYCESTER COLTMAN
YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2003

Resumen del libro

Rhetoric during and after the Cold War years has painted starkly contrasting portraits of Cuba’s Fidel Castro: an unblemished idealist on the one hand, a ruthless dictator on the other. This insightful book, the most intimate and dispassionate biography of the revolutionary leader to date, shows that neither assessmen t is true. Leycester Coltman, British ambassador to Cuba in the early 1990s, came as close to personal friendship with Castro as any foreigner was permitted. With frequent contact and regular conversations, Coltman was in a unique position to observe the dictator’s personality in both public and private situations. Here he presents a close-up view of the man who for half a century has been loved, admired, feared, and hated, but seldom really understood. Coltman chronicles the events of the Cuban leader’s extraordinary life from the political activism of his university days in Havana to periods of exile, imprisonment, and guerilla warfare alongside Che Guevara, to the uncertainties of his old age. Drawing on personal observation and archival sources in Cuba and abroad, Coltman explores the contradiction between the private character and the public reputation, and highlights the complexities of the consummate actor who continues to play a crucial role on the international stage. The late Sir Leycester Coltman was head of the Latin American Department of the British Foreign Office in the late 1980s and was British Ambassador to Cuba from 1991-94.

LAS ISLAS CANARIAS EN LOS TEXTOS ALEMANES: 1494-1865
ANROART EDICIONES, 2005

Resumen del libro

Ordenados cronológicamente, se presentan los textos escritos por autores alemanes sobre las Islas Canarias desde 1494 hasta 1865. A las primeras noticias breves de finales del siglo XV, siguen los primeros informes de viajes de alemanes que, de camino hacia América, pasaron por las Islas en el siglo XVI. En una segunda fase , se analizan las primeras descripciones del Archipiélago en lengua alemana. La breve, pero sumamente productiva estancia de Humboldt en Tenerife, en 1779, marca un nuevo rumbo y, tras él, va llegando el segundo grupo de viajeros y los primeros naturalistas del siglo XIX. Con Leopold Von Buch se inicia en 1815 una nueva y valiosa aportación a la investigación de la Geología del archipiélago, y Georg Hartung realiza la primera descripción geológica de Lanzarote y Fuerteventura. Julius F. Von Minutoli nos deja un primer estudio socioeconómico de las Islas. En el botánico Hermann Schacht visita el Archipiélago por motivos de salud, por lo que constituye el primer turista alemán en las Islas del que tenemos constancia por escrito. Finalmente, el botánico y ornitólogo Carl Bolle, que pasó en las Islas dos años, realizó una considerable aportación científica la investigación de la Flora y la Ornitología Canarias. ...

DOCE CALLES, 2005

Resumen del libro

 Alonso Morales, Mercedes.Dice la leyenda que cuando se tocó por primera vez la campana se rompieron todos los cristales de Toledo. Que incluso llegó a oírse en Madrid. El presente libro narra la concepción, creación y legado cultural de la campana más grande de España, ubicada en la catedral de Toledo. La escritora ev ita la mera enumeración de fechas al mezclar historia, en su sentido más rígido, con anécdotas, leyendas y dichos populares que convergen en un estilo fluido. Se establece un marco referencial sobre el estudio de las campanas, sus orígenes, tipos, tamaños, fundidores y decoración. Sus capítulos permiten conocer este tema tan poco tratado por la historiografía enfocándose en la llamada Campana Gorda. En éste se relata la concepción y arduo proceso de fundición de dicha campana en 1753 y abarca todo un capítulo para el impresionante recuento de la subida de la Campana Gorda a la torre de la catedral pasados dos años de su creación. ...

QUIEN ES QUIEN EN LA HISTORIA DEL PAIS DE LOS VASCOS
TXALAPARTA, 2005

Resumen del libro

Este libro reúne cerca de dos mil biografías de hombres y mujeres de origen vasco. Son breves reflexiones sobre la vida y la aportación de estas personas al mapa de la memoria colectiva de nuestro país. Muchos de los personajes de estas páginas son desconocidos, otros en cambio, vivieron ya la gloria del reconocimiento. En ese conjunto de luces y sombras, Quién es quién es una casa común, como lo ha sido la sociedad vasca durante su historia, una morada de grandes contrastes. Porque, como hubiera recordado Pío Baroja, tan vascos eran Ignacio de Loyola y Francisco Javier, primeros espadas de la Compañía de Jesús, como el bayonés Saint-Cyran (Jean Duvergier), el jansenista, enemigo de los jesuitas. Zumalakarregi, Elio, Radica fueron carlistas que tuvieron enfrente a liberales como Mina, Txapalangarra o Jáuregui. Los enciclopedistas guipuzcoanos compartieron escenario con los sacerdotes más retrógrados y los guerrilleros más activos con los policías más tenebrosos. Gentes de todas las procedencias, en una porción representativa, conforman las páginas de este libro. ... Leer resumen completo

THE CATHOLIC REVOLUTION: NEW WINE, OLD WINESKINS, AND THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL
ANDREW GREELEY
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

"Few scholars in our period have clarified the profound changes that have occurred in American Catholicism as well as Andrew Greeley has. This is a stunning and genuinely new interpretation of those radical shifts in Catholic thought post Vatican II."--David Tracy, University of Chicago"Greeley tackles the big question of h ow the Roman Catholic Church could be in such deep trouble just a generation removed from its biggest reform. In this timely review of the last forty years, he reveals his mastery of both church politics and popular religious feelings. Once again he shows us why millions of American Catholics trust him to be their voice."--Mike Hout, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley How, a mere generation after Vatican Council II initiated the biggest reform since the Reformation, can the Catholic Church be in such deep trouble? The question resonates through this new book by Andrew Greeley, the most recognized, respected, and influential commentator on American Catholic life. A timely and much-needed review of forty years of Church history, "The Catholic Revolution "offers a genuinely new interpretation of the complex and radical shift in American Catholic attitudes since the second Vatican Council (1962-1965). Drawing on a wealth of data collected over the last thirty years, Greeley points to a rift between the higher and lower orders in the Church that began in the wake of Vatican Council II--when bishops, euphoric in their (temporary) freedom from the obstructions of the Roman Curia, introduced modest changes that nonetheless proved too much for still-rigid structures of Catholicism: the "new wine" burst the "old wineskins." As the Church leadership tried to reimpose the old order, clergy and the laity, newly persuaded that "unchangeable" Catholicism could in fact change, began to make their own reforms, sweeping away the old "rules" that no longer made sense. The revolution that Greeley describes brought about changes that continue to reverberate--in a chasm between leadership and laity, and in a whole generation of Catholics who have become Catholic on their own terms. Coming at a time of crisis and doubt for the Catholic Church, this richly detailed, deeply thoughtful analysis brings light and clarity to the years of turmoil that have shaken the found ...

WALSINGHAM: ELIZABETHAN SPYMASTER & STATESMAN
ALAN HAYNES
ALAN SUTTON PUBLISHING, 2004

Resumen del libro

Walsingham, Elizabeth's spymaster had established the most extensive spy network the world had ever seen, placing secret agents throughout Europe, especially in the Catholic courts of Spain, Italy, and France, to ferret out Catholic plots against Elizabeth. He took an active part in the persecution of Catholics and, with th e backing of William Cecil, entered Parliament in 1563. Joining the Privy Council in 1573, he was knighted in 1577. The ousted Catholics championed Mary Queen Scots. Fearful of an uprising, Elizabeth offered Mary sanctuary against the Scottish reformers and then betrayed and imprisoned her. She then plotted with Walsingham to compromise Mary. Through his talented spies Walsingham built a case against Mary through her letters - which are suspected now to have been forged by Walsingham himself - and which eventually brought about a death warrant for Mary from Elizabeth. He later discovered information about the attack of the Spanish Armada - which was sent by an outraged King Philip of Spain who accused Elizabeth of regicide. Yet in later years, Elizabeth all but ignored her spymaster.Walsingham, distrusted for being too powerful and having information that might ... Leer resumen completo

RIVERS OF GOLD: THE RISE OF THE SPANISH EMPIRE, FROM COLUMBUS TO MAGELLAN
BALLANTINE BOOKS (RANDOM), 2005

Resumen del libro

From one of the greatest historians of the Spanish world, here is a fresh and fascinating account of Spains early conquests in the Americas. Hugh Thomass magisterial narrative of Spain in the New World has all the characteristics of great historical literature: amazing discoveries, ambition, greed, religious fanaticism, cou rt intrigue, and a battle for the soul of humankind.Hugh Thomas shows Spain at the dawn of the sixteenth century as a world power on the brink of greatness. Her monarchs, Fernando and Isabel, had retaken Granada from Islam, thereby completing restoration of the entire Iberian peninsula to Catholic rule. Flush with success, they agreed to sponsor an obscure Genoese sailors plan to sail west to the Indies, where, legend purported, gold and spices flowed as if they were rivers. For Spain and for the world, this decision to send Christopher Columbus west was epochalthe dividing line between the medieval and the modern.Spains colonial adventures began inauspiciously: Columbuss meagerly funded expedition cost less than a Spanish princesss recent wedding. In spite of its small scale, it was a mission of astounding scope: to claim for Spain all the wealth of the Indies. The gold alone, thought Columbus, would fund a grand Crusade to reunite Christendom with its holy city, Jerusalem. The lofty aspirations of the first explorers died hard, as the pursuit of wealth and glory competed with the pursuit of pious impulses. The adventurers from Spain were also, of course, curious about geographical mysteries, and they had a remarkable loyalty to their country. But rather than bridging earth and heaven, Spains many conquests bore a bitter fruit. In their search for gold, Spaniards enslaved Indians from the Bahamas and the South American mainland. The eloquent protests of Bartolome de las Casas, here much discussed, began almost immediately. Columbus and other Spanish explorersCortes, Ponce de Leon, and Magellan among themcreated an empire for Spain of unsurpassed size and scope. But the door was soon open for other powers, enemies of Spain, to stake their claims.Great men and women dominate these pages: cardinals and bishops, priors and sailors, landowners and warriors, princes and priests, noblemen and their determined wives.Rivers of Gold is a great story brilliantly told. More significant, it is an engrossing history with many profoundoften disturbingechoes in the present.From the Hardcover edition. ... Leer resumen completo

KNIGHT S CROS AND OAK-LEAVES RECIPIENTS 1941-45

Resumen del libro

The remarkable early successes of the armed forces of the Third Reich prompted the decision that the supreme decoration for personal valour or outstanding leadership – the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross – was insufficient. To mark further acts of gallantry a new distinction was created in June 1940: the Oak-Leaves clasp. Further decorations in the form of the Swords and, finally, the Diamonds were added. This second title in our series describes and illustrates a selection of recipients of the Knight’s Cross and Oak-Leaves between 1941 and early 1944, when the Wehrmacht was engaged on all fronts, as well as at sea and in the air. ...

FORT EBEN EMAEL: THE KEY HITLER S VICTORY IN THE WEST
OSPREY PUBLISHING, 2005

Resumen del libro

At the outbreak of World War II, Fort Eben Emael in Belgium was the strongest fortress in the world, and it lay exactly across the German invasion route of Belgium and France. The fort’s elimination was essential for the success of Hitler’s invasion of the West. Deemed impregnable to conventional attack, Hitler himself suggested the means for its capture with the first glider-borne assault in military history. On 10 May 1940, ten gliders carrying just 77 paratroopers landed on top of the fort. Using top-secret hollow-charge weapons for the first time in warfare, the assault pioneers of Sturmgruppe Granit subdued Fort Eben Emael within just 30 minutes, and the fortress surrendered within 30 hours. It remains one of the greatest raids in the annals of Special Forces. ... Leer resumen completo

HISTORIA Y POLITICA: ESCRITOS DE BRAULIO FOZ
INSTITUCION FERNANDO EL CATOLICO, 2005

Resumen del libro

La biografía de Braulio Foz (Fórnoles, 1791-Zaragoza, 1865) refleja muy bien, desde Aragón, el tránsito de la cultura política de la Ilustración hasta la afirmación de la sociedad y el estado liberales después del proceso de ruptura con el Antiguo Régimen. Este libro consiste en una edición crítica de sus principales escrit os de historia, y tiene el propósito de establecer sus textos de divulgación del pasado aragonés y de interpretar un discurso claramente unitario a partir de la dispersión de géneros y formas que frecuenta su autor: panfletos, libros reeditados y revisados, artículos de prensa&@8230;; su conocida novela sobre &@171;La vida de Pedro Saputo&@187; (1844), que ha merecido mejor fortuna de la crítica histórica y filológica, también puede ser mejor comprendida a partir de la reconstrucción del pensamiento de Braulio Foz que aquí se propone. La historia se convierte en este periodo en una de las principales fuentes de legitimación para el liberalismo y el nacionalismo, tanto en Europa como en España, y Foz es uno de lo primeros autores empeñados en dar a conocer la historia del Reino de Aragón para mejor fundamentar el discurso y el proyecto político del liberalismo progresista. Son, por tanto, escritos de &@8220;historia y política&@8221;, pues son las necesidades del presente liberal las que orientan la recuperación y la enseñanza del pasado de Aragón, contemplado como pieza indispensable así en la historia como en la construcción de la nueva nación liberal. ...

AMERICAN INDIANS OF THE PACIFIC NORHWEST
ELIZABETH VON ARDEKAS
OSPREY PUBLISHING, 2005

Resumen del libro

The Indian tribes of the Pacific Northwest, both on the Coast and the inland Plateau, were the last to encounter white traders and settlers. When contact occured in the late 18th century the explorers and traders found two distinct cultures. The fairly recent adoption of the horse had opened the Plateau tribes to influences from the peoples of the Plains; but the tribes of the Coast presented a sharply different picture, involving rigid class hierarchies, an economy based on fishing and hunting marine animals, and frequent intertribal warfare which involved slave raiding and head hunting. This fascinating text describes the ways of life, in peace and war, of the coastal and inland peoples of this region. ... Leer resumen completo

VIMY RIDGE 1917: BYNG S CANADIANS TRIUMPH AT ARRAS
ALEXANDER TURNER
OSPREY PUBLISHING, 2005

Resumen del libro

Vimy Ridge was one of the most important geographic features on the entire Western Front in World War I. In early 1917 it was considered practically impregnable, but on 9 April the Canadian Army Corps, under the command of the British Lieutenant General Sir Julian Byng, assaulted it as part of the Arras offensive. In one of the most spectacular operational attacks of the war, they seized almost the entire ridge in a single day. This book describes how the innovative efforts that went into every aspect of the preparation for this attack ensured that the Canadian and British troops achieved unprecedented success. ...

KASSERINE PASS 1943: ROMMEL S LAST VICTORY
STEVEN J. ZALOGA
OSPREY PUBLISHING, 2005

Resumen del libro

The North African campaign of November 1942-May 1943 was a baptism of fire for the US Army. After relatively straightforward landings, the US II Corps advanced into Tunisia to support operations by the British 8th Army. Rommel, worried by the prospect of an attack, decided to exploit the inexperience of the US Army and stri ke a blow against their overextended positions around the Kasserine Pass. However, the Germans were unable to exploit their initial success, and later attacks were bloodily repulsed. The fighting in Tunisia taught the green US Army vital combat lessons, and brought to the fore senior commanders such as Eisenhower, Patton, and Bradley. ... Leer resumen completo

FAILURE OF EMPIRE: VALENS AND THE ROMAN STATE IN THE FOURTH CENTU RY
NOEL LENSKI
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

"Failure of Empire "is the first comprehensive biography of the Roman emperor Valens and his troubled reign (a.d. 364-78). Valens will always be remembered for his spectacular defeat and death at the hands of the Goths in the Battle of Adrianople. This singular misfortune won him a front-row seat among history's great loser s. By the time he was killed, his empire had been coming unglued for several years: the Goths had overrun the Balkans; Persians, Isaurians, and Saracens were threatening the east; the economy was in disarray; and pagans and Christians alike had been exiled, tortured, and executed in his religious persecutions. Valens had not, however, entirely failed in his job as emperor. He was an admirable administrator, a committed defender of the frontiers, and a ruler who showed remarkable sympathy for the needs of his subjects. In lively style and rich detail, Lenski incorporates a broad range of new material, from archaeology to Gothic and Armenian sources, in a study that illuminates the social, cultural, religious, economic, administrative, and military complexities of Valens's realm. "Failure of Empire "offers a nuanced reconsideration of Valens the man and shows both how he applied his strengths to meet the expectations of his world and how he ultimately failed in his efforts to match limited capacities to limitless demands. ...

THE SPANISH INQUISITION
HELEN RAWLINGS
BLACKWELL BASIL, 2005

Resumen del libro

Drawing on the latest research by American, British and European scholars, this book challenges the reputation of the Spanish Inquisition as an instrument of religious persecution, torture and repression. The author traces the history of the Spanish Inquisition from 1478when it was founded, through its agenda against dissen ters, to its demise and abolition in the early nineteenth century. Taking account of the work of a new generation of international historians, she demonstrates that the Inquisition was a far less brutal instrument of control than hitherto envisaged, that torture and the death penalty were only rarely applied, and then almost exclusively during the early years of its history. The book also draws attention to the wider role of the Inquisition as an educative force in societythat strengthened the bonds between church and state. This book challenges the reputation of the Spanish Inquisition as an instrument of religious persecution, torture and repressionand looks at its wider role as an educative force in society. A reassessment of the history of the Spanish Inquisition. Challenges the reputation of the Inquisition as an instrument of religious persecution, torture and repression.

BATTLE: A HISTORY OF COMBAT CULTURE
JOHN A. LYNN
WESTVIEW PRESS, 2005

Resumen del libro

"Battle: A History of Combat and Culture" spans the globe and the centuries to explore the way ideas shape the conduct of warfare. Drawing its examples from Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, and America, John A. Lynn challenges the belief that technology has been the dominant influence on combat from ancient t imes to the present day. In battle, ideas can be more far more important than bullets or bombs. Carl von Clausewitz proclaimed that war is politics, but even more basically, war is culture. The hard reality of armed conflict is formed by - and, in turn, forms - a culture's values, assumptions, and expectations about fighting. The author examines the relationship between the real and the ideal, arguing that feedback between the two follows certain discernable paths. Battle rejects the currently fashionable notion of a "Western way of warfare" and replaces it with more nuanced concepts of varied and evolving cultural patterns of combat. After considering history, Lynn finally asks how the knowledge gained might illuminate our understanding of the war on terrorism. ... Leer resumen completo

MONTESQUIEU: LES VENDANGES DE LA LIBERTE
SEUIL, 2003

Resumen del libro

Montesquieu, ce gentilhomme d'Aquitaine, épistolier persan et familier des Grâces de Chantilly, fut aussi l'un des inventeurs de ce siècle qui, de Marivaux à Watteau, a donné au monde l'exemple d'un art de vivre hors de la pesanteur. Et ce viticulteur gascon n'a pas seulement contribué à l'épanoui ssement du grand bordeaux, ?uvre d'art qui n'a pas fini de nous enchanter, il a su faire de cette merveille le trait d'union avec une société anglaise faite non seulement de consommateurs exigeants, mais aussi d'inventeurs d'une société plus libre. Ainsi Jean Lacouture peut-il faire valoir que, si les lois ont un " esprit " qui doit tendre à l'harmonie sociale, la vie de Montesquieu fut en quelque sorte une vendange de la liberté. ...

UNE VIE DE RENCONTRES
SEUIL, 2005

Resumen del libro

Une vie peut être ordonnée par le don fait aux autres découverte, soins, inventions, leçons. Elle peut aussi prendre son sens dans le ou les cadeaux reçus d'autrui : amitié, art, exemples ou même greffe. Ainsi celle de Jean Lacouture, reporter, analyste, biographe, spectateur du monde, qui, d'innom brables rencontres, aura tiré le suc qui a donné plusieurs sens à son parcours d'homme. Du journalisme, découvert à 33 ans dans les rizières d'Indochine et appris ensuite de quelques maîtres, à l'édition où il fut guidé par un éminent chef de file, du portrait de presse l'évocation globale de quelques-uns des personnages de notre temps ou de plusieurs grands écrivains, cette longue carrière fut d'abord celle d'un " honune-reflet ". Du général Leclerc à Chou En-lai, de François Mauriac et Jean Cocteau à Robert Kennedy et de Pierre Mendès France à Simone Signoret, de Germaine Tillion à Alain Cuny, de François Mitterrand à Jeanne Blum et Yehudi Menuhin, notre homme aura fait des dizaines de rencontres, de hasard parfois, de profession souvent, de désir aussi. Il évoque ici ces personnages hors du commun en montrant de quelle manière il a été façonné par eux. S'il est très beau de donner, il n'est pas médiocre de recevoir et, de ce don, faire un autre don. Telle est l'ambition de ce livre. De cette riche galerie de portraits tirés d'une vie mouvementée, Jean Lacouture a su faire une évocation vivante du XXe siècle, de ses fièvres, de ses tragédies et de ses grâces. ...

VISOR LIBROS, 2005

Resumen del libro

Nada esencial e importante de la sociedad y la cultura de la epoca le fue ajeno al gran poeta y periodista nicaraguense Ruben Dario que, enviado por el diario La Nacion de Buenos Aires, supo recoger en estas cronicas la mejor y mas autentica radiografia sobre la crisis de final de siglo vivida en España despues de la derrot a frente a los Estados Unidos y la consiguiente perdida de sus ultimas colonias de ultramar. Asistio a representaciones teatrales y de opera, acudio a exposiciones, entrevisto a politicos y escritores, y escucho y leyo con atencion lo que decian los intelectuales del momento; no dejo tampoco de estar al dia de las ultimas publicaciones literarias y gustaba de estrechar amistad con las nuevas promociones de jovenes artistas. Hay en el trasfondo de estas paginas una atmosfera reinante: la de una exhalacion de organismo descompuesto, una caida colosal del gran imperio que fue España y que puede percibirse a poco que el lector se acerque a las paginas de este libro. ...
