Eminencia, o, La memoria fingida by Javier Alfaya( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relato de intrigas políticas, de amor y de amistad en la España convulsa de Carlos IV y la Guerra de la Independencia, que no pretende reflejar minuciosamente una época sino explorar su espíritu, mezcla de aliento renovador, superstición y fanatismo. Su protagonista es el último Gran Inquisidor. Un hombre tolerante e ilustrado -con fama de ateo, francmasón y mujeriego- a quien tocó vivir una extraordinaria paradoja: fue él quien debió presidir la agonía de una institución que encarnó, más que ninguna otra, el oscurantismo y la intolerancia en la Historia de España.

9 editions published in 1996 in Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The third man by Graham Greene( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 47 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

Memorias de África by Karen Blixen( Book )

18 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La historia de la pasión por un continente histórico. Recién casada, una joven danesa, hija y hermana de militares, aristócrata y refinada, viajó a África, a Kenia, donde permaneció durante diecisiete años. Y esa experiencia dio lugar a una novela que es una encendida declaración de amor a unos paisajes, a unas gentes y a unas culturas que se situaban en el polo opuesto de lo que había sido su pasado familiar y social. Para Isak Dinesen, África fue el escenario de un destino y la revelación de la pluralidad fascinante del mundo y sus gentes. Poseída por la necesidad de Sherezade, la autora nos relata un cuento que se prolonga a lo largo de páginas encantadas: el cuento de su vida en África y el cuento de la vida e los que la rodeaban ¿europeos o somalíes, kikuyus o masais . Isak Dinesen escribió con Memorias de África, don de cuenta en primera persona sus vivencias en el vasto continente, el mejor de todos sus libros. Una de las narraciones más perfectas de la literatura europea contemporánea

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

6 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
