Life And Death In Picasso: Still Life/figure C 1907-1933
Books>Home and Garden
BargainBookFeed
Description : .In this original and innovative book- Christopher Green explores how Pablo Picasso- through the manipulation of pictorial signs- explored ideas about the living and the dead. Oscillating between the animate and the inanimate- Picasso created objects that live- and figures that are as dead as objects. Covering the period from the creation of the Demoiselles d’Avignon in 1907 to the artist’s association with the Surrealists in the early 1930s- the book offers a journey through Picasso’s imagination and reveals—by way of Apollinaire- Breton- and Freud- among others—the ideas and reflections associated with life and death in his work. Published in association with the Museu Picasso in Barcelona- the book also includes an essay on Picasso’s biomorphic motifs by the leading Spanish critic J. F. Yvars..

Description : .An ancient hilltop fortress. A crusader citadel in the West Bank. A fairytale medieval castle fallen into ruin. From ancient times to the end of the nineteenth century- Abandoned Castles explores more than 100 forts- castles and defensive strongholds from all around the globe. From medieval Japanese castles to Spanish colonial forts in West Africa to Norman stone keeps- the book ranges widely across history. Many have long ceased to serve a purpose- but then- like the crusader castle Krak de Chevaliers in Syria today- their impenetrable walls become the site of more fighting centuries later. Others- such as the Cathar ChaÌteau de Queribus in southern France- stand high above peaceful coastlines- testament to the wars of the past. Some are beautiful- others brutal- but each tells a story about the way we fought and defended ourselves- and how the building has survived and aged- long after the people it was built by are gone. With 150 outstanding color photographs- Abandoned Castles is a brilliant pictorial examination of castles- forts- keeps- and defensive fortifications from the ancient world to the end of the nineteenth century..

Bringers Of War: The Portugese In Africa During The Age Of Gunpowder And Sail From The 15th To 18th Century
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .Long before coal-fuelled ships and machine-tooled firearms- in the age of sail and black powder- the Portuguese were engaged all around the coasts of Africa in capturing trading towns- seizing slaves and searching for mineral riches. They fought their ancient Muslim foes wherever they encountered them- overthrew African kingdoms and resisted Dutch- Omani and Ottoman rivals.Campaigning over difficult terrain and in notoriously inhospitable climates- these were far from one-sided contests. Often victory was theirs- but so too were crushing- ignominious defeats in the field- debilitating sieges and humiliating capitulations. These were clashes between very contrasting societies with their own methods of warfare- choice of weaponry and concepts of what it took to be a heroic warrior.The enthralling tale of the Portuguese in Africa before the nineteenth century deserves to be every bit as familiar as the Spanish conquest of the Americas. Yet- surprisingly- English-speaking readers know few if any of their ferocious African wars. In this impeccably researched and spellbinding new book- John Leband seeks to redress this imbalance expertly recalling this remarkable saga in full for the first time..

Guantánamo: An American History
Guantánamo: An American History
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .An on-the-ground history of American empireSay the word Guantánamo and orange jumpsuits- chain-link fences- torture- and indefinite detention come to mind. To critics the world over- Guantánamo Bay- Cuba- is a striking symbol of American hypocrisy. But the prison isn''t the whole story. For more than two centuries- Guantánamo has been at the center of American imperial ambition- first as an object of desire then as a convenient staging ground.In Guantánamo: An American History- Jonathan M. Hansen presents the first complete account of this fascinating place. The U.S. presence at Guantánamo predates even the nation itself- as the bay figured centrally in the imperial expansion plans of colonist and British sailor Lawrence Washington-half brother of the future president George. As the young United States rose in power- Thomas Jefferson and his followers envisioned a vast empire of liberty- which hinged on U.S. control of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. Politically and geographically- Guantánamo Bay was the key to this strategy. So when Cubans took up arms against their Spanish rulers in 1898- America swooped in to ensure that Guantánamo would end up firmly in its control. Over the next century- the American navy turned the bay into an idyllic modern Mayberry-complete with bungalows- cul-de-sacs- and country clubs-which base residents still enjoy. In many ways- Guantánamo remains more quintessentially American than America itself: a distillation of the idealism and arrogance that has characterized U.S. national identity and foreign policy from the very beginning.Despite the Obama administration''s repeated efforts to shutter the notorious prison- the naval base is in no danger of closing anytime soon. Places like Guantánamo- which fall between the clear borders of law and sovereignty- continue to serve a purpose regardless of which leaders-left- right- or center-hold the reins of power..

Hell and Good Company: The Spanish Civil War and the World it Made
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .From the Pulitzer Prize–winning and bestselling author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb—the remarkable story of the Spanish Civil War through the eyes of the reporters- writers- artists- doctors- and nurses who witnessed it.The Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) inspired and haunted an extraordinary number of exceptional artists and writers- including Pablo Picasso- Joan Miro- Martha Gellhorn- Ernest Hemingway- George Orwell- and John Dos Passos. The idealism of the cause—defending democracy from fascism at a time when Europe was darkening toward another world war—and the brutality of the conflict drew from them some of their best work: Guernica- For Whom the Bell Tolls- Homage to Catalonia- The Spanish Earth. The war spurred breakthroughs in military and medical technology as well. New aircraft- new weapons- new tactics and strategy all emerged in the intense Spanish conflict. Indiscriminate destruction raining from the sky became a dreaded reality for the first time. Progress also arose from the horror: the doctors and nurses who volunteered to serve with the Spanish defenders devised major advances in battlefield surgery and front-line blood transfusion. In those ways- and in many others- the Spanish Civil War served as a test bed for World War II- and for the entire twentieth century. From the life of John James Audubon to the invention of the atomic bomb- readers have long relied on Richard Rhodes to explain- distill- and dramatize crucial moments in history. Now- he takes us into battlefields and bomb shelters- into the studios of artists- into the crowded wards of war hospitals- and into the hearts and minds of a rich cast of characters to show how the ideological- aesthetic- and technological developments that emerged in Spain changed the world forever..

Royal Cities Of The Ancient Maya
Royal Cities Of The Ancient Maya
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .The Maya are of enormous and abiding fascination to anybody interested in archaeology- ancient history- astronomy- or the visual arts. From the 3rd century BC to the 14th century AD- while Europe was deep in the Dark and Middle Ages- the Maya were producing astonishing sculpture- stelae- and wall murals- and building magnificent temples- palaces- tombs- and ball courts. Now- in this extraordinary volume pairing a leading Maya scholar and one of the world’s finest photographers of ancient sites- the rich cultural heritage of the Maya is brought vividly and authoritatively to life. Author Michael Coe traces the rise and fall of Maya civilization through its great royal cities- from El Mirador- the largest and oldest- to the rival city-states of the Classical period such as Tikal- Calakmul- Yaxchilán- Palenque- Toniná- and Copán. He then moves on to the great cities of the Terminal Classic period; at a time when the mighty centers of the southern lowlands were in a steep decline- cities to the north such as Uxmal and Kabah achieved a pinnacle of architectural beauty. After that he turns to the Postclassic period and Chichén Itzá in central Yucatán- a huge- cosmopolitan city that flourished during a military and cultural takeover by the Toltecs of central Mexico. Through convincing analysis of archaeological evidence- new readings- of artifacts- reliefs- and murals- Professor Coe untangles the complex sequences of internecine ritual warfare that eventually weakened Maya civilization. Illustrating Coe’s riveting history of these remarkable polities- the powerful dynasties that led them- and the political intrigues and armed conflicts that threatened their existence- are the exceptionally evocative photographs of Barry Brukoff- whose color and sepia imagery recalls the lithographs of the early-nineteenth-century artist and explorer Frederick Catherwood. Praise for Royal Cities of the Ancient Maya: This book takes us on a three-thousand-year journey through Maya history- from nascent agrarian communities to coastal shrines of Yucatán on the eve of the Spanish conquest. Along the way- we visit the major centers of ancient Maya civilization- and in each locale we are given a unique private tour of its remarkable art and architecture through Barry Brukoff’s masterly photographs. Our guide on this epic journey is Michael Coe- whose vivid account is informed by vast knowledge of Mesoamerican culture. Royal Cities of the Ancient Maya is an experience not to be missed.—Professor Andrea Stone- Department of Art History- University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee A sumptuous presentation of all things Maya. The architecture- art- and history of this extraordinary people are covered in great detail- from the first farmers to the arrival of the Spaniards. During this long interval of some 3500 years- the Maya created one of the most distinctive of ancient civilizations- here wonderfully revealed by Michael Coe- a leading authority in the field- and the superb photographs of Barry Brukoff. Royal Cities of the Ancient Maya is a feast for the eye and the mind for the scholar and the general reader alike.—Dr. David L. Webster- Professor of Anthropology- University of Pennsylvania Stunning photographs by Barry Brukoff illuminate insights and smart prose from Michael Coe- one of the most knowledgeable scholars of the ancient Maya- in Royal Cities of the Ancient Maya. For both general readers and specialists- this highly readable book offers wonderful surprises- along with the latest and most up-to-date interpretations. No bookshelf should be without it.—Dr. Mary Miller- Dean of Yale College- Sterling Professor of Art- History of Art of the Ancient New World- author of The Art of Mesoamerica: From Olmec to Aztec This book is glorious.

Description : .The first aerial warfare took place in 1911- but since then the weapons- techniques and outcome of war fighting in the air have changed immensely. Air Combat is a comprehensive history of airborne warfare- from the first pre-WWI skirmishes in converted reconnaissance aircraft to present-day operations in the Middle East and Asia.The very first fighters and bombers were simple flying machines from which the pilot or navigator would aim a gun or ''dumb'' bomb visually- leaning out into the slipstream. In contrast- modern warplanes are capable of destroying a target without ever seeing what they are firing at- using laser guidance and GPS to pinpoint the enemy.Illustrated with action photographs and full-color artworks- the chronologically ordered chapters outline the developments and landmarks in aerial combat through the decades- focusing on campaigns including the Spanish Civil War- the Blitzkrieg which began World War II- the Vietnam War- and the Falklands conflict. The book ends with an analysis of the use of U.S. and allied air power to fight insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan..

Sister Queens: The Noble- Tragic Lives Of Katherine Of Aragon And Juana- Queen Of Castile
Sister Queens: The Noble- Tragic Lives Of Katherine Of Aragon And Juana- Queen Of Castile
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe history books have cast Katherine of Aragon- the first queen of King Henry VIII of England- as the ultimate symbol of the Betrayed Woman- cruelly tossed aside in favor of her husband’s seductive mistress- Anne Boleyn. Katherine’s sister- Juana of Castile- wife of Philip of Burgundy and mother of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V- is portrayed as “Juana the Mad-” whose erratic behavior included keeping her beloved late husband’s coffin beside her for years. But historian Julia Fox- whose previous work painted an unprecedented portrait of Jane Boleyn- Anne’s sister- offers deeper insight in this first dual biography of Katherine and Juana- the daughters of Spain’s Ferdinand and Isabella- whose family ties remained strong despite their separation. Looking through the lens of their Spanish origins- Fox reveals these queens as flesh-and-blood women—equipped with character- intelligence- and conviction—who are worthy historical figures in their own right. When they were young- Juana’s and Katherine’s futures appeared promising. They had secured politically advantageous marriages- but their dreams of love and power quickly dissolved- and the unions for which they’d spent their whole lives preparing were fraught with duplicity and betrayal. Juana- the elder sister- unexpectedly became Spain’s sovereign- but her authority was continually usurped- first by her husband and later by her son. Katherine- a young widow after the death of Prince Arthur of Wales- soon remarried his doting brother Henry and later became a key figure in a drama that altered England’s religious landscape. Ousted from the positions of power and influence they had been groomed for and separated from their children- Katherine and Juana each turned to their rich and abiding faith and deep personal belief in their family’s dynastic legacy to cope with their enduring hardships. Sister Queens is a gripping tale of love- duty- and sacrifice—a remarkable reflection on the conflict between ambition and loyalty during an age when the greatest sin- it seems- was to have been born a woman..

Picasso- Miro- Dali: Angry Young Men: The Birth of the Modernity
Books>Art and Architecture
BargainBookFeed
Description : .The birth of the modern as seen through sixty stunning early works by three of the greatest artists of all time. This splendid catalog brings together the early works of Picasso- Miro- and Dali- the extraordinary Spanish artists who had a key role in early modern art. The publication begins by examining Picasso’s pre-cubist period (1900-1905)- while closely contrasting works created by Joan Miro between 1915-1920 with those by Salvador Dali between 1920-1925 in order to highlight the differences and stylistic relationships prior to the three artists’ adherence to surrealism.The authors have chosen early works rarely exhibited or published that show the artists’ early influences. Picasso’s early work is profoundly influenced by the artist’s political convictions. As for Miro- he rejected figurative painting as an expression of the cultural identity of the governing classes and also saw cubism as a “political tool.” Dali was ousted from the Academy in 1926 for having declared that no one in the faculty was sufficiently competent to examine him- yet his early work is marked by a complete mastery of pictorial techniques..

Hitler's Eagles: The Luftwaffe 1933-45
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .At the beginning of World War II- the Luftwaffe was the world''s most advanced air force. With superior tactics- aircraft and training- it cut through the air forces of Poland and Western Europe in 1939 and 1940- and those of the Soviet Union in 1941.Despite this auspicious beginning- by 1945 the Luftwaffe was a dying force. The Allies were destroying German aircraft at unequal rates- and Luftwaffe aviators were dying in their thousands in an unbalanced battle to save Germany from destruction. The Luftwaffe''s lack of a convincing long-range bomber force also meant that it could not return strategic devastation upon its enemies. In the words of one historian- the Luftwaffe had a ''strategy for defeat''.Hitler''s Eagles - The Luftwaffe 1933-45 charts the turbulent history of the Luftwaffe from its earliest days to its downfall. It explores the secretive development of German air power during the 1920s and early 1930s- and the training of a new generation of aviators- including combat experience in the Spanish Civil War. Once Hitler was in power- the Luftwaffe came out of the shadows and expanded under a massive rearmament programme- then embarked upon the war that would define its existence. Hitler''s Eagles explains the Luftwaffe''s operations in every theatre of the war - Europe- North Africa- the Mediterranean and the Eastern Front. As well as providing a detailed history of the Luftwaffe''s history and combat experience- the book also expands on its human and material aspects. Aces and commanders are profiled- uniforms and equipment are explained- and aircraft ranging from the Fiesler Storch to the Fw 200 Condor are described both technologically and tactically. The book conveys all the drama of the Luftwaffe''s existence- from bombing raids over London to jet-fighter dogfights over Berlin- with Osprey''s famous aviation artwork and more than 150 photos bringing the story incomparably to life..

Description : .As senior war correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation during the Second World War- Matthew Halton reported from the front lines in Italy and Northwest Europe and became “the voice of Canada at war.” His gripping- passionate broadcasts chronicled the victories and losses of Canadian soldiers and made him a national hero.Born in Pincher Creek- Alberta- in 1904- Halton was to achieve the fastest ever ascent in Canadian journalism. A year after joining the Toronto Daily Star as a cub reporter- he was in Berlin to write about Adolf Hitler’s seizure of power and – long before most other correspondents – to begin a prophetic series of warnings about the Nazi regime. For more than two decades- he witnessed first-hand the major political and military events of the era. He covered Europe’s drift to disaster- including the breakdown of the League of Nations- the Spanish Civil War- the sellout to Fascism at Munich- and the Nazi takeover of Czechoslovakia. Along the way he interviewed Franklin Delano Roosevelt- Hermann Göring- Neville Chamberlain- Charles de Gaulle- Mahatma Gandhi- and dozens of others who shaped the history of the century.In Dispatches from the Front- acclaimed former CBC correspondent David Halton- Matthew’s son- also examines his father’s often tumultuous personal life. He unravels the many paradoxes of his person­ality: the war correspondent who loathed bloodshed yet became addicted to the thrill of battle; the loner who thrived in good company; and- in some ways most puzzling of all- the womanizer with a deep and enduring love for his wife. Drawn from extensive interviews and archival research- this definitive biography is a captivating portrait of the life of one of Canada’s most accom­plished journalists..

Description : .At the time of his death in 1838- Seminole warrior Osceola was the most famous and respected Native American in the world. Born a Creek- young Osceola was driven from his home by General Andrew Jackson to Spanish Florida- where he joined the Seminole tribe. Years later- President Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act- which was not only intended to relocate the Seminoles to hostile lands in the West but would force the return of runaway slaves who had joined that tribe. Osceola-outraged at the potential loss of his people and homeland-did not hesitate to declare war on the United States.Osceola and the Great Seminole War vividly recounts how one warrior with courage and cunning unequaled by any Native American leader before or after would mastermind battle strategies that would embarrass the best officers in the United States Army. Employing daring guerilla tactics- Osceola initiated and orchestrated the longest- most expensive- and deadliest war ever fought by the United States against Native Americans. With each victory by his outnumbered and undersupplied warriors- Osceola''s reputation grew among his people and captured the imagination of the citizens of the United States. At the time- many cheered his quixotic quest for justice and freedom- and since then many more have considered his betrayal on the battlefield to be one the darkest hours in U.S. Army history.Insightful- meticulously researched- and thrillingly told- award-winning author Thom Hatch''s account of the Second Seminole War is an extraordinarily accomplished work of American history that finally does justice to one of the greatest Native American warriors..

Age Of Empires

Description : .The story of thirteen modern empires told with a rich profusion of illustrations drawn from a wide range of vivid- authentic sources. Images of empire are extraordinarily potent. Spanish memories of the Conquistadors; Camoes' saga of the Portuguese discoverers- The Lusiads; Pondichery and the other French enclaves in India; the Dutch heritage of trade in the East Indies; above all- perhaps- the colonial gallery of great explorers like Stanley and Livingstone--none of these have lost their resonance. In the modern period of Western history- from the Renaissance until the present- empires in one form or another have been a constant feature of the political landscape. For Germany and Italy- overseas dreams were short-lived; in the United States and the Soviet Union- imperialistic activity existed but was never accepted as an official state policy; and the disappearance of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires has obscured some of the imperial dimensions of these states. But a generation or more after the final collapse of most of the European empires- the subject is still a major issue for historians. This intriguing account raises new subjects- from the roles of women in empire building to food and ecology. It shows how the maps of the explorations- the chronologies of the conquests- the balance sheets of commerce- the pantheons of explorers- settlers- and administrators- and all else that made up the Age of Empires play a key role in explaining the global civilization of today. With contributions by Esther Captain- Jill Dias- Nicholas Doumanis- Josep Fradera- Jacques Fremeaux- Graeme Gill- Kund J. V.

Description : .NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERParis- 1938. As the shadow of war darkens Europe- democratic forces on the Continent struggle against fascism and communism- while in Spain the war has already begun. Alan Furst- whom Vince Flynn has called “the most talented espionage novelist of our generation-” now gives us a taut- suspenseful- romantic- and richly rendered novel of spies and secret operatives in Paris and New York- in Warsaw and Odessa- on the eve of World War II.   Cristián Ferrar- a brilliant and handsome Spanish émigré- is a lawyer in the Paris office of a prestigious international law firm. Ferrar is approached by the embassy of the Spanish Republic and asked to help a clandestine agency trying desperately to supply weapons to the Republic’s beleaguered army—an effort that puts his life at risk in the battle against fascism.   Joining Ferrar in this mission is a group of unlikely men and women: idealists and gangsters- arms traders and aristocrats and spies. From shady Paris nightclubs to white-shoe New York law firms- from brothels in Istanbul to the dockyards of Poland- Ferrar and his allies battle the secret agents of Hitler and Franco. And what allies they are: there’s Max de Lyon- a former arms merchant now hunted by the Gestapo; the Marquesa Maria Cristina- a beautiful aristocrat with a taste for danger; and the Macedonian Stavros- who grew up “fighting Bulgarian bandits. After that- being a gangster was easy.” Then there is Eileen Moore- the American woman Ferrar could never forget.   In Midnight in Europe- Alan Furst paints a spellbinding portrait of a continent marching into a nightmare—and the heroes and heroines who fought back against the darkness.Praise for Alan Furst and Midnight in Europe  “Furst never stops astounding me.”—Tom Hanks   “Furst is the best in the business.”—Vince Flynn   “Elegant- gripping . . . [Furst] remains at the top of his game.”—The New York Times   “Suspenseful and sophisticated . . . No espionage author- it seems- is better at summoning the shifting moods and emotional atmosphere of Europe before the start of World War II than Alan Furst.”—The Wall Street Journal   “Endlessly compelling . . . Furst delivers an observant- sexy- and thrilling tale set in the outskirts of World War II. In Furst’s hands- Paris once again comes alive with intrigue.”—Erik Larson   “Too much fun to put down . . . [Furst is] a master of the atmospheric thriller.”—The Boston Globe.

Description : .NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERNAME ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Entertainment Weekly • Kirkus Reviews • The Christian Science MonitorIn the picturesque village of Guzmán- Spain- in a cave dug into a hillside on the edge of town- an ancient door leads to a cramped limestone chamber known as “the telling room.” Containing nothing but a wooden table and two benches- this is where villagers have gathered for centuries to share their stories and secrets—usually accompanied by copious amounts of wine.   It was here- in the summer of 2000- that Michael Paterniti found himself listening to a larger-than-life Spanish cheesemaker named Ambrosio Molinos de las Heras as he spun an odd and compelling tale about a piece of cheese. An unusual piece of cheese. Made from an old family recipe- Ambrosio’s cheese was reputed to be among the finest in the world- and was said to hold mystical qualities. Eating it- some claimed- conjured long-lost memories. But then- Ambrosio said- things had gone horribly wrong. . . .   By the time the two men exited the telling room that evening- Paterniti was hooked. Soon he was fully embroiled in village life- relocating his young family to Guzmán in order to chase the truth about this cheese and explore the fairy tale–like place where the villagers conversed with farm animals- lived by an ancient Castilian code of honor- and made their wine and food by hand- from the grapes growing on a nearby hill and the flocks of sheep floating over the Meseta.   What Paterniti ultimately discovers there in the highlands of Castile is nothing like the idyllic slow-food fable he first imagined. Instead- he’s sucked into the heart of an unfolding mystery- a blood feud that includes accusations of betrayal and theft- death threats- and a murder plot. As the village begins to spill its long-held secrets- Paterniti finds himself implicated in the very story he is writing.   Equal parts mystery and memoir- travelogue and history- The Telling Room is an astonishing work of literary nonfiction by one of our most accomplished storytellers. A moving exploration of happiness- friendship- and betrayal- The Telling Room introduces us to Ambrosio Molinos de las Heras- an unforgettable real-life literary hero- while also holding a mirror up to the world- fully alive to the power of stories that define and sustain us.Praise for The Telling Room  “Captivating . . . Paterniti’s writing sings- whether he’s talking about how food activates memory- or the joys of watching his children grow.”—NPR   “A gorgeous and impassioned monument to the art and mystery of storytelling- The Telling Room is rich- funny- humane- devastating- and beautiful. It made me want to applaud- it made me want to cry- it made me want to move to Spain. Michael Paterniti is a genius.”—Elizabeth Gilbert- author of Eat- Pray- Love   “Unforgettable . . . a must-read for all who think of Spain as magical- who consider cheese as the ultimate gift of love- who love stories of betrayal- despair- revenge and redemption.”—The Wall Street Journal   “The Telling Room embodies the spirit of slow food and life.”—Michael Pollan   “Elegant- strange- funny- and insightful- The Telling Room is a marvelous tale and a joyful read- a trip into a world peopled by some of the most remarkable characters—and- yes- cheese—in memory.”—Susan Orlean- author of The Orchid Thief.

Description : .From the acclaimed author of Fordlandia- the story of a remarkable slave rebellion that illuminates America’s struggle with slavery and freedom during the Age of Revolution and beyondOne morning in 1805- off a remote island in the South Pacific- Captain Amasa Delano- a New England seal hunter- climbed aboard a distressed Spanish ship carrying scores of West Africans he thought were slaves. They weren’t. Having earlier seized control of the vessel and slaughtered most of the crew- they were staging an elaborate ruse- acting as if they were humble servants. When Delano- an idealistic- anti-slavery republican- finally realized the deception- he responded with explosive violence.Drawing on research on four continents- The Empire of Necessity explores the multiple forces that culminated in this extraordinary event—an event that already inspired Herman Melville’s masterpiece Benito Cereno. Now historian Greg Grandin- with the gripping storytelling that was praised in Fordlandia- uses the dramatic happenings of that day to map a new transnational history of slavery in the Americas- capturing the clash of peoples- economies- and faiths that was the New World in the early 1800s..

Description : .From the award-winning Spanish writer Javier Marías comes an extraordinary new book that has been a literary sensation around the world: an immersive- provocative novel propelled by a seemingly random murder that we come to understand—or do we?—through one woman’s ever-unfurling imagination and infatuations. At the Madrid café where she stops for breakfast each day before work- María Dolz finds herself drawn to a couple who is also there every morning. Though she can hardly explain it- observing what she imagines to be their “unblemished” life lifts her out of the doldrums of her own existence. But what begins as mere observation turns into an increasingly complicated entanglement when the man is fatally stabbed in the street. María approaches the widow to offer her condolences- and at the couple’s home she meets—and falls in love with—another man who sheds disturbing new light on the crime. As María recounts this story- we are given a murder mystery brilliantly reimagined as metaphysical enquiry- a novel that grapples with questions of love and death- guilt and obsession- chance and coincidence- how we are haunted by our losses- and above all- the slippery essence of the truth and how it is told..

Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom
Books>History
BargainBookFeed
Description : .On June 28- 1839- the Spanish slave schooner Amistad set sail from Havana on a routine delivery of human cargo. On a moonless night- after four days at sea- the captive Africans rose up- killed the captain- and seized control of the ship. They attempted to sail to a safe port- but were captured by the U.S. Navy and thrown into jail in Connecticut. Their legal battle for freedom eventually made its way to the Supreme Court- where their cause was argued by former president John Quincy Adams. In a landmark ruling- they were freed and eventually returned to Africa. The rebellion became one of the best-known events in the history of American slavery- celebrated as a triumph of the legal system in films and books- all reflecting the elite perspective of the judges- politicians- and abolitionists involved in the case. In this powerful and highly original account- Marcus Rediker reclaims the rebellion for its true proponents: the African rebels who risked death to stake a claim for freedom.Using newly discovered evidence- Rediker reframes the story to show how a small group of courageous men fought and won an epic battle against Spanish and American slaveholders and their governments. He reaches back to Africa to find the rebels’ roots- narrates their cataclysmic transatlantic journey- and unfolds a prison story of great drama and emotion. Featuring vividly drawn portraits of the Africans- their captors- and their abolitionist allies- he shows how the rebels captured the popular imagination and helped to inspire and build a movement that was part of a grand global struggle between slavery and freedom. The actions aboard the Amistad that July night and in the days and months that followed were pivotal events in American and Atlantic history- but not for the reasons we have always thought.The successful Amistad rebellion changed the very nature of the struggle against slavery. As a handful of self-emancipated Africans steered their own course to freedom- they opened a way for millions to follow. This stunning book honors their achievement. .

The day before a teenage Ellie moved from Georgia to California- she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath the Spanish moss of an ancient oak tree where they wrote letters to each other and buried them in a rusty old metal box. The plan was to return eleven years later- dig the box up- and read the letters. But now- as that date approaches- much has changed. Ellie has abandoned the faith she grew up with- her days consumed with loving her little girl and trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she watches TV to catch a glimpse of her old friend Nolan- now an NBA star- whose faith is known by the entire nation. But few know that Nolan’s own personal tragedies have fueled both his faith and athletic drive. Despite his success- Nolan is isolated and lonely- plagued by a void in his heart that has remained since that night beneath the old oak tree with Ellie. For both Ellie and Nolan- the coming date is more than just a childhood promise. It’s the chance to make sense of it all—the chance to find out if it’s ever too late to find love again. Karen Kingsbury weaves a moving tale of heart-wrenching loss- the power of faith- and the wounds that only a forever kind of love can heal. She delves deeply into a theme that resonates within us all: Hope lives for those willing to take a chance..

Description : .Salvador Dali- the Spanish Surrealist painter- was a highly skilled draftsman- made famous by his striking and bizarre images. His most popular work- The Persistence of Memory (1931)- led him to critical acclaim; however- he was also well known for his work in sculpture- photography- fashion- movies and books. he was an eccentric artist who was often as well known for his attention seeking antics as he was for his work. Besides The Persistence of Memory- Dali's other most important and influential works include Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second before Waking Up- and The Enigma of William Tell. The Persistence of Memory is probably one of Dali's most recognizable works- which first introduced the image of soft- melting pocket watches and his theory of softness and hardness that were central to his thinking during his Freudian phase in the early 1930s. Animals also featured widely in Dali's work- including the elephant- lobster- and rhinoceros- which he believed symbolized the Virgin Mary. Dali found his favoured muse and lifelong companion- Gala- early in his life. She was to be an inspiration in many of his works and was instrumental in bringing Dali the worldwide recognition he deserved- both during hi lifetime and into the 21st century.

Description : .From the award-winning author of A Complicated Kindness comes a heart-wrenching yet wryly funny story about setting out on the road to self-discovery- and finding the strength to survive in the face of immeasurable loss. Nineteen-year-old Irma Voth lives in a Mennonite community in northern Mexico- surrounded by desert and both physically and culturally isolated from the surrounding towns and cities. It’s been six years since her family up and left Canada to escape the prying eyes of the government and preserve their religious freedom- but Irma still misses the minor freedoms she had in their small town. She even misses the cold. This new life has not been an easy one- and Irma finds herself deserted by her husband of one year- who has left to pursue a life of drug-running- instead of working her family’s farm. The most devastating blow for Irma is that he didn’t take her with him- take her away- so now she’s left to live under her father’s domineering rule alone. Things change for Irma when a film crew moves into the empty house next door. They’ve come to make a movie about the Mennonite community- and have made a deal with Irma’s father to stay on their land. The director enlists Irma to work for them as a translator- as she can speak not only Spanish and English but Plattdeutsch- or Low German- the language of her people. At first bemused by the ragged and absurd crewmembers- Irma comes to embrace the passion and creative freedom of their world – but in doing so brings on the wrath of her father- who is determined to keep her from it at all costs. When Irma’s thirteen-year-old sister Aggie begins to come by and spend time with the crew- their father is sent over the edge with rage- and Irma is forced to make a hard decision to save not only herself- but her younger sister- and to break the dark chain of violence holding her family. The girls flee to the city- not knowing where they’ll find food or shelter- let alone build a life- but knowing for the first time that they are free to make that choice. And even as they begin to understand the truth of the tragedy that has their family in its grip- Irma and Aggie use their love as a source of strength to help each other move on from their past lives and work toward a future that can truly become anything they want it to be..

Description : .Centuries of warfare that changed the world are captured in History’s Greatest Wars. This book acts as a perfect primer for novices while offering seasoned history readers new perspectives on many famous and some not-so-well-known conflicts. Each chapter includes a quick-reference summary- a timeline- an overview of the war- essays on its principal leaders- a series of short- often offbeat features on aspects of the conflict- and a detailed account of a pivotal battle. Author Joseph Cummins highlights pivotal victories that changed nations- from the Norman invasion of England in 1066 to the Spanish conquest of Mexico in 1521 and the first fervid days of the French Revolution of 1789 to the bloody stalemate that ended the Iran-Iraq War in 1988. Each chapter delineates defining moments in the development of political philosophies- from Athens’ defense of democracy against Persian despotism to the championing of equal rights for all in the American Revolution. It recounts the heroism of armies and individuals- from the Spartans’ fight to the death against the Persians at Thermopylae in 480 BC to the Korean admiral who inspired his country to repel a massive Japanese invasion in the 1590s. It traces the transformation of battle tactics- from the prearranged set-piece encounters of the Napoleonic Wars to the massive naval landings and aerial bombardments of World War II- explains the scientific innovations that yielded the machine gun- the tank- and the atom bomb- and vividly renders the key victories that turned the tide of war- from Waterloo to Gettysburg and D-Day. At the same time- it reiterates the constants of conflict: the slaughters and massacres- including the Holocaust and the little-known Taiping Rebellion- which killed up to forty million Chinese; the personal sacrifices made by those battling tyranny- among them the rebels of revolutionary France- Greece- and Mexico; and the extraordinary influence of charismatic leaders- ranging from Napoleon and Pancho Villa to Mao Zedong and Hitler. Sweeping in its scope- yet intimate in its insights into the motivations of politicians- strategists- commanders- and soldiers- this is a collection that will enhance your understanding of the modern world and your own place in it..

Description : .Monroe by Mailer and SternTASCHEN has paired Mailer''s original text (his 1973 biography Marilyn) with Bert Stern''s extraordinary photographs—widely considered the most intimate ever taken of Monroe—to create a fitting tribute to the woman who- at the time of her death in 1962- was the world''s most famous- a symbol of glamour and eroticism for an entire generation. But though she was feted and adored by her public- her private life was that of a little girl lost- desperate to find love and security. Mailer''s Marilyn is beautiful- tragic- and complex. As Mailer reflects upon her life—from her bleak childhood through to the mysterious circumstances of her death—she emerges as a symbol of the bizarre decade during which she reigned as Hollywood''s greatest female star.This book- conceived by Lawrence Schiller- Mailer’s collaborator on five works- combines the author’s masterful text with Stern''s penetrating images of the 36-year-old Marilyn. Photographed for Vogue magazine over three days at the Bel-Air Hotel- Marilyn had never allowed such unfettered access- nor had she looked so breathtakingly beautiful. Six weeks later- mysteriously- she was dead. In this bold synthesis of literary classic and legendary portrait sitting- Mailer and Stern lift the veils of confusion surrounding Monroe—the woman- the star- the sex symbol—and offer profound insight into an iconic figure whose true personality remains an enigma even today. Translations of Mailer''s text are available in German (the translation dates from 1992) and now for the first time in Spanish and French Limited to a total of 1-962 numbered copies signed by Bert Stern- this book is available as Collector''s Edition (No. 251-1-962)- and also in two Art Editions of 125 copies each (No. 1-250)..

Description : .WINNER OF THE CRIME WRITERS’ ASSOCIATION’S INTERNATIONAL DAGGERFor fans of Alan Furst and Carlos Ruiz Zafón comes a haunting and layered thriller filled with history- adventure- suspense- and an unforgettable love story—by the internationally bestselling author Arturo Pérez-Reverte.   Cádiz- 1811: The Spanish port city has been surrounded by Napoleon’s army for a year. Their backs to the sea- its residents endure routine bombardments and live in constant fear of a French invasion. And now the bodies of random women have begun to turn up throughout the city—victims of a shadowy killer.   Police Comisario Rogelio Tizón has been assigned the case. Known for his razor-sharp investigation skills—as well as his brutal interrogation methods—Tizón has seen everything. Or so he thought. His inquiry into the murders reveals a surprising pattern: Each victim has been found where a French bomb exploded. Logic tells him to pass it off as coincidence; his instinct tells him otherwise- and he begins to view Cádiz as a living chessboard- with himself and the killer the main players.   In a city pushed to the brink- violence and desperation weave together the lives of a group of unlikely people: the Spanish taxidermist who doubles as a French spy; the young woman who uses her father’s mercantile business to run the enemy blockade; the rough-edged corsair who tries to resist her charms; and the brilliant academic furiously trying to perfect the French army’s artillery and bring Cádiz to its knees once and for all. And as Napoleon presses closer- Tizón must make his next move on the bomb-scarred chessboard before the killer claims another pawn.   Combining fast-paced narrative with scrupulous historical accuracy- this smart- suspenseful tale of human resilience is Arturo Pérez-Reverte at the height of his talents.   Praise for The Siege  “A genre-bending literary thriller . . . Pirates; serial killings; steamy- unrequited love: Pérez-Reverte imbues the sensational with significance. . . . His descriptions of the town and people of Cádiz capture colors- smells and personalities- making the page come to life- and he balances these sensory passages with dense observations about history- metaphysics- science- and human nature.”—Kirkus Reviews“Bold . . . [Pérez-Reverte’s] best yet . . . an ambitious intellectual thriller peopled with colorful rogues and antiheroes- meticulous in its historical detail- with a plot that rattles along to its unexpected finale. It’s hard to think of a contemporary author who so effortlessly marries popular and literary fiction as enjoyably as this.”—The Observer   “Pérez-Reverte has long been Spain’s most popular- inventive writer of historical fiction. . . . This is a big and bold novel- rich in character and incident.”—The Sunday Times   Acclaim for Arturo Pérez-Reverte   “John le Carré meets Gabriel García Márquez . . . Pérez-Reverte has a huge following . . . and it’s spreading.”—The Wall Street Journal   “The Da Vinci Code and The Rule of Four . . . pale in comparison with Pérez-Reverte’s novels.”—Time Out New York   “It’s a rare novelist who can create a literary page-turner. Arturo Pérez-Reverte . . . is one of those rarities.”—The Denver Post.

Winter King: Henry VII and the Dawn of Tudor England
Books>Biography and Memoir
BargainBookFeed
Description : .A fresh look at the endlessly fascinating Tudors—the dramatic and overlooked story of Henry VII and his founding of the Tudor Dynasty—filled with spies- plots- counter-plots- and an uneasy royal succession to Henry VIII. It was 1501. England had been ravaged for decades by conspiracy- violence- murders- coups and countercoups. Through luck- guile and ruthlessness- Henry VII- the first of the Tudor kings- had clambered to the top of the heap—a fugitive with a flimsy claim to England’s throne. For many he remained a usurper- a false king. But Henry had a crucial asset: his queen and their children- the living embodiment of his hoped-for dynasty. Queen Elizabeth was a member of the House of York. Henry himself was from the House of Lancaster- so between them they united the warring parties that had fought the bloody century-long Wars of the Roses. Now their older son- Arthur- was about to marry a Spanish princess. On a cold November day sixteen-year-old Catherine of Aragon arrived in London for a wedding that would mark a triumphal moment in Henry’s reign. In this remarkable book- Thomas Penn re-creates the story of the tragic- magnetic Henry VII—a controlling- paranoid- avaricious monarch who was entering the most perilous years of his long reign. Rich with drama and insight- Winter King is an astonishing story of pageantry- treachery- intrigue and incident—and the fraught- dangerous birth of Tudor England..

Description : .The inspiring international bestseller of a seemingly ordinary woman who uses her talent and courage to transform herself first into a prestigious couturier and then into an undercover agent for the Allies during World War II.Between Youth and Adulthood…At age twelve- Sira Quiroga sweeps the atelier floors where her single mother works as a seamstress. At fourteen- she quietly begins her own apprenticeship. By her early twenties she has learned the ropes of the business and is engaged to a modest government clerk. But everything changes when two charismatic men burst unexpectedly into her neatly mapped-out life: an attractive salesman and the father she never knew. Between War and Peace…With the Spanish Civil War brewing in Madrid- Sira leaves her mother and her fiancé- impetuously following her handsome lover to Morocco. However- she soon finds herself abandoned- penniless- and heartbroken in an exotic land. Among the odd collection of European expatriates trapped there by the worsening political situation back on the Continent- Sira reinvents herself by turning to the one skill that can save her: her gift for creating beautiful clothes. Between Love and Duty…As England- Germany- and the other great powers launch into the dire conflict of World War II- Sira is persuaded to return to Madrid- where she takes on a new identity to embark upon the most dangerous undertaking of her career. As the preeminent couturier for an eager clientele of Nazi officers’ wives- Sira becomes embroiled in the half-lit world of espionage and political conspiracy rife with love- intrigue- and betrayal. An outstanding success around the world- The Time in Between has sold more than two million copies and inspired the Spanish television series based on the book- dubbed by the media as the “Spanish Downton Abbey.” In the US it was a critical and commercial hit- and a New York Times bestseller in paperback.

Nostromo
Nostromo
Books>Fiction and Literature
BargainBookFeed
Description : .BEFORE BECOMING A LEADING modernist writer- Joseph Conrad- was first a sailor whose travels to exotic lands around the world were later mirrored in his explorations into human nature in his novels. Nostromo- published just over a century ago- takes place in the small fictional South American port and mining town of Sulaco- Costaguana. Sen~or Gould- who owns a silver mine in Sulaco- has had enough of the corruption in his native country. However- his efforts to bring stability to the country result in his mine becoming a pawn in the hands of the warlords and revolutionaries. Gould entrusts his silver to Nostromo- a longshoreman whom he believes to be upstanding and moral. In Conrad's novels- though- no one is incorruptible- and rot and decay are rampant inside and out. Dramatic in its storytelling and spectacular in its description of the subtropical landscape- Nostromo exposes the reality of a lawless society and the resulting moral corruption on every page through Conrad's impeccable style.In the time of Spanish rule- and for many years afterwards- the town of Sulaco--the luxuriant beauty of the orange gardens bears witness to its antiquity--had never been commercially anything more important than a coasting port with a fairly large local trade in ox-hides and indigo. The clumsy deep-sea galleons of the conquerors that- needing a brisk gale to move at all- would lie becalmed- where your modern ship built on clipper lines forges ahead by the mere flapping of her sails- had been barred out of Sulaco by the prevailing calms of its vast gulf. Some harbours of the earth are made difficult of access by the treachery of sunken rocks and the tempests of their shores. Sulaco had found an inviolable sanctuary from the temptations of a trading world in the solemn hush of the deep Golfo Placido as if within an enormous semi-circular and unroofed temple open to the ocean- with its walls of lofty mountains hung with the mourning draperies of cloud..

OLD MAN AND THE SEA / TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT
Books>Fiction and Literature
BargainBookFeed
Description : .Simultaneously intimate- simple- deep- and powerful- The Old Man and the Sea is a story of triumph- loss- struggle- and perseverance- set against the rich backdrop of a Cuban fishing community.The novella follows an old fisherman as he struggles to catch a gigantic marlin and turn his waning luck around. Over the course of this struggle the book contemplates masculinity- religion- fate- and the ultimate meaning (or lack thereof) of life. Influenced in equal parts by the Great Depression- and the Marxist ideology that fuelled the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War (on which Hemingway is reporting at the time)- it is a blunt exploration of one man's struggles with economic hardships- the circumstances into which he is forced- and the decisions he is forced to make. One of his first novels set in the Western Hemisphere- To Have and Have Not tells the story of a fisherman forced by economic circumstances to run contraband from Cuba to the United States. It is a complex and layered narrative- combining two previously written short stories with a new novella..

NELSON THE SWORD OF ALBION
NELSON THE SWORD OF ALBION
Books
BargainBookFeed
Description : .The most authoritative and intimate portrait written of Horatio NelsonIn this epic biography of British history''s most celebrated naval commander- acclaimed historian John Sugden separates fact from myth to offer a powerful portrait of the military hero of Trafalgar.As was true of the Sugden''s riveting account of Horatio Nelson''s early years (Nelson: A Dream of Glory- 2005)- this comprehensive life of Lord Nelson is built from largely overlooked primary documents- letters- and diaries that reach across two centuries to invite us to share Nelson''s multifaceted life in the Napoleonic Wars.The Sword of Albion offers the sweep and intimacy of first-rate historical fiction--revealing the interior lives- for example- of Lord Nelson''s wife- Fanny and family and the caring and more passionate Emma- Lady Hamilton- who nursed the war-weary hero back to health in Naples and London after his brilliant victory over the Spanish fleet at Cape St. Vincent in 1797 and the stunning defeat at Tenerife that cost Nelson his right arm.Today''s reader comes to understand that every obstacle in Nelson''s path was attacked head-on with an Achilles-like ferocity and resolve. Yet his life was no steady upward trajectory; it was instead plagued by injuries and debt for the commoner admiral in a royal navy and English society dominated by lineage and property. As Sugden points out- His life was a mission with the essence of a tour de force- hurrying toward a bloody climax that would change the fate of empires..

The plan was to return eleven years later and read them in 2013- the year Nolan’s time traveling books say all the mysteries of the world will be understood. Now- as that date approaches- much has changed. Ellie- bereft of the faith she grew up with- is a single mom living in a tired apartment and trying to make ends meet. Nolan- now an NBA star- has dealt with terrible personal tragedies that fueled his faith and athletic drive in equal measure. Ever since his father and coach succumbed to a heart attack- Nolan has suffered from a transcendent loneliness. Drowning in an ocean of grief- he often thinks about Ellie and the innocence of their childhood days together. As Ellie and Nolan move toward the possibility of a reunion at the oak tree- Molly and Ryan- the central characters from author Karen Kingsbury’s previous novel The Bridge- return in their own ongoing story. Written by the “Queen of Christian Fiction” (Time) with eloquence and grace- The Chance is a beautiful tale of heart-wrenching loss- the power of faith- and the wounds that only love can heal..

DiscountMags.com Product Catalog
Description : .The Medieval era is often dismissed as a brutal period of darkness, ignorance, bloodshed and disease – the so-called ‘Dark Ages’ dividing classical antiquity from the age of enlightenment. But while warfare, invasions and religious persecution were certainly defining themes of the period, Medieval history is also filled with intrepid explorers, revolutionary artists and thinkers, and inspirational rulers whose legacies still live on to this day. In the All About History Book of Medieval History we explore some of the most fascinating stories from this tumultuous period, from the triumph of William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings to the brutal Spanish Inquisition begun by Isabella of Castile. Read on to discover tales of kings and queens, crusaders and criminals, popes and peasants, and more. Featuring: An age of darkness and light - Chart the tumultuous history of the Medieval era with our timeline of the pathway from antiquity to modernity. Wars, invasions & exploration - The Medieval period was filled with intrepid explorers, bloodthirsty tyrants and legendary warriors. Church & state - The Middle Ages saw the Church wield incredible power over everyone from monarchs to the peasantry. Life, death & the gateway to modernity - Life in the Medieval era could be harsh, but it laid the groundwork for the modern era..
