Viajes con Charley : en busca de los Estados Unidos by John Steinbeck( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En buena medida, debemos a la obra de novelistas como Steinbeck nuestra idea de la América genuina, esa que, ajena a la sofisticasción, está hecha de trabajos duros y personalidades fuertes. A los 58 años, John Steinbeck decidió prescindir de las convenciones de la ficción y empredió un viaje por Estados Unidos con vistas a obtener una impresión directa de su paisaje y sus gentes. Acompañado de su perrito Charley, recorrió cuarenta estados, circuló por autopistas y carreteras secundarias, compartió mesa y mantel con camioneros, vendedores y viajeros sin rumbo, recobró viejas amistades esparcidas por el país y, sobre todo, se imbuyó del paisaje físico y moral de su tierra. El resultado de estas experiencias es una reflexión realista, a la vez lúcida y apasionada, sobre el carácter americano, un ejercicio literario que aúna capacidad descriptiva e inspiración lírica, un estudio que consolida y ahonda las impresiones que nos dejaron las novelas de Steinbeck

El protagonista de esta novela es uno de los personajes más memorables de la literatura norteamericana: Ignatius Reilly --una mezcla de Oliver Hardy delirante, Don Quijote adiposo y santo Tomás de Aquino perverso, reunidos en una persona--, que a los treinta años aún vive con su estrafalaria madre, está ocupado en escribir una extensa y demoledora denuncia contra nuestro siglo, tan carente de "teología geometría" como de "decencia y buen gusto"; un alegato desquiciado contra una sociedad desquiciada. Por una inesperada necesidad de dinero, se ve "catapultado en la fiebre de la existencia contemporánea", fiebre a la que Ignatius añadirá unos cuantos grandes más

Hitler 1936 - 1945 by Ian Kershaw( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein epochales Werk, ein Höhepunkt der Geschichtsschreibung.Das auf zwei Bände angelegte Werk des britischen Historikers Ian Kershaw ist beides: eine Biographie Hitlers und eine Geschichte der NS-Zeit. Es untersucht eindrucksvoll die historischen Kräfte, die einen trägen österreichischen Träumer in einen Diktator mit immenser Macht verwandelten. Kershaw vertritt den Standpunkt, dass die Ursachen für Hitlers Macht nicht nur in den Taten des Diktators gesucht werden müssen, sondern auch (und ganz besonders) in den sozialen Verhältnissen eines Staates, der es ihm erlaubte, alle institutionellen und moralischen Grenzen zu überschreiten
A short history of nearly everything by Bill Bryson( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in Spanish and English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Bill Bryson explores the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer and attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. To that end, Bill Bryson apprenticed himself to a host of the world's most profound scientific minds, living and dead. His challenge is to take subjects like geology, chemistry, paleontology, astronomy, and particle physics and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people, like himself, made bored (or scared) stiff of science by school. His interest is not simply to discover what we know but to find out how we know it. How do we know what is in the center of the earth, thousands of miles beneath the surface? How can we know the extent and the composition of the universe, or what a black hole is? How can we know where the continents were 600 million years ago? How did anyone ever figure these things out? On his travels through space and time, Bill Bryson encounters a splendid gallery of the most fascinating, eccentric, competitive, and foolish personalities ever to ask a hard question. In their company, he undertakes a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge
