Cuando llegue la revolución habrá patines para todos by Said Sayrafiezadeh( )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los progenitores de Saïd opinaban que la gloriosa insurrección proletaria estaba a la vuelta de la esquina, de modo que lo sacrificaron todo para acelerar su advenimiento. De tan heroica ofrenda al dios de los paraísos futuros no excluyeron ni su matrimonio ni la infancia de su hijo. Ya le habría gustado a él que lo hubiesen consultado antes, sobre todo en lo relativo a la espinosa conexión dialéctica entre la lucha de clases y los monopatines. El indomable líder de la vanguardia obrera se vio muy pronto constreñido a desertar del frente doméstico para despachar las altas misiones que la historia le asignaba. Pero su esposa (incombustible, leal y abandonada) no cejó en el empeño y, sin dar tregua al capitalismo agonizante, siguió instruyendo al niño en el desprecio a los lujos burgueses que éste tanto anhelaba. Mientras tanto lo sometía a un febril tratamiento de gimnasias militantes destinado a convertirlo en el vástago perfecto de la causa. Ni siquiera faltó un reglamentario viaje a Cuba. ¿Pero qué ocurre cuando el gran día se retrasa? Aquí podrán leer la deliciosa respuesta a esa pregunta tan honda y afligida
The blood of the lamb by Peter De Vries( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En La sangre del cordero, Don Wanderhope, alter ego del autor, nos cuenta cómo ha sido su vida desde su infancia en Chicago, en el seno de una familia calvinista, hasta la muerte de su hija de doce años, enferma de leucemia. Una vida, pues, marcada por la pérdida: la de su hermano, muerto en la infancia; la de su primer amor, que ha sucumbido a la tuberculosis; la de su esposa suicida y finalmente la de su hija. Sin embargo, lejos de convertirlo en un ser derrotado y mudo, la presencia constante de la muerte lleva a Wanderhope a preguntarse por el sentido de todo en un tono en el que la rabia y el duelo no paran de mezclarse con el ingenio, el humor y la ternura. La sangre del cordero nos ofrece una exhibición de ingenio, lirismo, precisión verbal y comicidad que confirma a Peter de Vries como uno de los mejores escritores estadounidenses del siglo xx. -

On anarchism by Noam Chomsky( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Radical linguist, philosopher, and activist Noam Chomsky is one of the world's foremost intellectuals. Known for his brilliant evisceration of American foreign policy, state capitalism, and the mainstream media, he remains a formidable and unapologetic critic of established authority. On Anarchism sheds a much-needed light on the foundations of Chomsky's thought, specifically his constant questioning of the legitimacy of entrenched power. The book gathers his essays and interviews to provide a short, accessible introduction to his distinctively optimistic brand of anarchism. Chomsky eloquently refutes the notion of anarchism as a fixed idea, suggesting that it is part of a living, evolving tradition, and he disputes the traditional fault lines between anarchism and socialism, emphasizing the power of collective, rather than individualist, action. Including a revealing new interview with Chomsky by well-known writer and blogger Nathan Schneider that assesses Chomsky's writings on anarchism to date, this is a book that is sure to challenge, provoke, and inspire. Profoundly relevant to our times, On Anarchism is a touchstone for political activists and anyone interested in deepening their understanding of anarchism and the man dubbed the 'nation's conscience.' Incorporating revealing interviews with Chomsky by writer Nathan Schneider that update each in light of today's events, this is a book that is sure to provoke and inspire. Profoundly relevant to our times, On Anarchism is a touchstone for activists and anyone interested in politics and the man dubbed 'our nation's conscience'"--Provided by publisher
