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

11 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 340 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

6 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 31 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
