The eagle's throne : a novel by Carlos Fuentes( Book )

"In the near future, at a meeting of the United States Security Council, Mexico's idealistic president has dared to vote against the U.S. occupation of Colombia and Washington's refusal to pay OPEC prices for oil. Retaliation is swift. Concocting a 'glitch' in a Florida satellite, America's president cuts off Mexico's communications systems--no phones, faxes, or e-mails--and plunges the country into an administrative nightmare of colossal proportions. Now, despite the motto that 'a Mexican politician never puts anything into writing, ' people have no choice but to communicate through letters, which Fuentes crafts with a keen understanding of man's motives and desires"--Inside front cover

Hugo Chávez by Cristina Marcano( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critically acclaimed biography of this controversial world leader is at last available in English. Born in a small town, Chávez entered the military academy and was drawn to leftist politics and a new sense of himself as predestined to change the fortunes of his country--and of Latin America. By day a family man and a military officer, by night he secretly recruited insurgents to overthrow the government. His coup attempt failed, but laid the groundwork for his ascension to the presidency eight years later. Chávez's revolutionary "Bolivarian" government stresses economic reforms meant to discourage corruption and empower the poor--yet the leader spends thousands a day on himself and cozies up to Arab oil elites. Venezuelan journalists Marcano and Barrera Tyszka explore the often crude public figure who condemns George W. Bush in fiery language but at the same time hires lobbyists to improve his country's image in the West.--From publisher description

"Seven Against Georgia is a group of "testimonials" in which seven flamboyant Spanish gay men, adopting such over-the-top noms de guerre as Herr Betty Honey and Pamela Poodle, respond to sodomy laws by sending their stories of sex and desire directly to the head of the state of Georgia's police force. Whether it's Miss Balcony's very special relationship with the man who delivers her morning baguette (and who boasts a similar-sized baton himself), or Colette Miss Coco's comparative study of the sex she's known in her round-the-world business travels, Herr Betty Honey's passion for a man with a great love of first-communion dresses, or Miss Madelon's ode to a man (or, better, several men) in uniform, the testimonials in Seven Against Georgia provide sparkling entertainment and a delightful and erotic statement on the individual right to pleasure in all its forms."--Jacket

Precociously curious about the opposite sex - particularly the intimate garments he finds drying in the laundry room - he is initiated into the erotic by a family servant, and soon moves on to the more forbidden charms of his lovely, sophisticated half-sister. As he comes of age - attending art school, becoming an acclaimed painter, and settling in Bordeaux - Pierre simultaneously pursues ever more complex pleasures, devouring his father's collection of de Sade, Restif de la Bretonne, and other erotic classics; sampling the varieties of women - from a Senegalese prostitute, to a lesbian who works as a dominatrix to rich men, to a beautiful German who becomes his last, most perfect lover; and exploring the limits of his fetishes for dressing up and the adoration of beautiful, feminine feet."--BOOK JACKET
