It covers the entire history of Spain’s economic and social evolution from prehistoric times to the end of the nineteenth century.

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At what point in history did people start serving meals at regular hours? Would we still be eating communally today if the Black Plague hadn't forced diners to eat at a safe distance from each other? What's the real story behind the origin of pasta? These are just a few of the tantalizing questions that are answered in this fascinating history of food from prehistoric times to the present. This comprehensive work explores the culinary evolution of cultures ranging from Mesopotamia to modern America, and explores every aspect of food history, from the dietary rules of the ancient Hebrews to the contributions of Arab cookery. Written by leading world authorities, this volume gives a unique perspective on the social and cultural mores of humankind through the ages, offering cooks, culinary scholars, and food lovers a banquet of information on which to feast. --Publisher

Castaways : the narrative of Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Castaways (or Naufragios) is the first major narrative of the exploration of North America by Europeans (1528-1536). It is also an enthralling story of adventure and survival against unimaginable odds. Its author, Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, a fortune-seeking sixteenth-century Spanish nobleman, was the treasurer of an expedition to claim for the Spanish Crown a vast area that includes today's Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. A shipwreck forced him and a handful of men to make the long journey to the West coast, where they would meet up with Hernan Cortes, on foot. They endured unspeakable hardships, some of them surviving only by eating the dead. Others, including Cabeza de Vaca joined native peoples he met along the way, learning their languages and practices, and serving them as a slave and later as a physician. When after eight years he finally reached the West, he was not recognized by his compatriots. Cabeza de Vaca displays great interest in the cultures - so alien to his own - of the native peoples he encountered on his odyssey, observing their customs and belief systems with a degree of sophistication and sensitivity unusual in the conquistador. As he forged intimate bonds with some of them, sharing their brutal living conditions and curing their sick, he found himself on a voyage of self-discovery that was to make his reunion with his fellow Spaniards less joyful than expected. Cabeza de Vaca's narrative is a marvelously gripping story, but it is also much more. It is a first-hand account of sixteenth-century Spanish colonization, of the encounter between the conquistador and the Native American, of the aspirations and fears of exploration. It is a trove of ethnographic information, its descriptions and interpretations of native peoples' cultures making it a powerful precursor to modern anthropology. And it is a masterpiece of exploration writing, its author keenly aware of the fictive thrust that often energizes the writing of history

La muerte de Iván Ilich by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lev Tolstói es uno de los escritores señeros de la historia no sólo por novelas como "Guerra y paz", "Anna Karénina" o "Resurrección", sino que también fue un maestro en el ámbito de la novela corta, reflejo asimismo de su incesante reflexión acerca de la naturaleza del hombre, de sus contradicciones, de su pugna constante consigo mismo y con la naturaleza a lo largo de su existencia. Inspirado en un incidente cotidiano y real, "La muerte de Iván Ilich" incide con vigor en la pavorosa y tardía toma de conciencia de una vida inerte y vivida de forma insatisfactoria. (Alianza)
