    Mediados del siglo XVIII. En un rincón perdido del sur de Galicia vive un joven caballero, tras largos años de exilio por una desafortunada aventura juvenil. El tiempo transcurre lentamente para él, aislado y sin amigos, encerrado con sus recuerdos. Un día escribe una carta a su antiguo maestro, el Abad, hombre sabio que se ha convertido en educador de un pueblo entero. El joven caballero lo invita a pasar con él una temporada de descanso. El Abad termina aceptando la invitación y emprende un azaroso viaje en compañía de otros tres monjes, para ir al encuentro de su antiguo discípulo. No obstante, el reposo prometido se enturbia cuando todos -el joven caballero, su amante, los monjes- se ven envueltos en un lance que ha de cambiar sus vidas. Y el Abad se ve obligado a enfrentarse con la crueldad de una maquinaria ciega de poder, que pone a prueba su espíritu de tolerancia y su sentido de la compasión. Leyenda es una nueva contribución a la serie de relatos magistrales que Javier Alfaya ha ido creando desde el principio de su carrera. Y, sin duda alguna, la confirmación de un talento en continua ascensión

    17 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    The setting is post-war Vienna, a once-beautiful city that was now nothing but war rubble. It's administered by the four victorious nations, Russia, France, Great Britain and the United States, and they all communicate with each other in the language of their former enemy. There's a somber mood, a feeling of decay and destruction throughout. And, of course there's a mystery, and lots of suspense, as the reader is swept into a story of intrigue, betrayal and constantly changing alliances. --Linda Linguvic at Amazon.com

    Carlism and crisis in Spain, 1931-1939 by Martin Blinkhorn( Book )

    5 editions published in 1979 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    This is a study in English of the Carlist Movement, the extreme right-wing party in Spain, during the climactic decade of the 1930s. Carlism represents the oldest existing movement of the traditionalist right in Europe. In 1931 Carlists had already been in conflict with Spanish liberalism and leftism for over a century, seeking to reverse the trends of the nineteenth century and restore a religiously inspired corporative monarchy and harmonious society. During the 1930s they attacked and plotted the overthrow of the democratic Second Republic, participated in the rising of 1936 and then played a major political and military role within Nationalist Spain. Dr Blinkhorn discusses Carlism's internal politics, power struggles and sources of support; its ideology; its relations with other elements in the Spanish right, principally Falangism and Catholic conservatism; its attitude towards the Republic, liberalism and the left; its view of contemporary events elsewhere in Europe; its stress on paramilitarism and conspiracy against the Republican regime; and its wartime role
