Claudio Daniel Bo Desafiando a las alturas
321.43

Surgió una idea, la soñé y la viví: Me fui a Mendoza a pasar unos días a la montaña. Pero no es solo a las montañas, mi objetivo era subir al Aconcagua, llegar al techo de América y decir acá estoy. Una idea que parecía una locura y terminó siendo una experiencia increíble, donde conocí gente con distintos ideales pero con un mismo objetivo. Y ni que hablar de cada paisaje que te regala la naturaleza, solo basta con cerrar los ojos y al abrirlos ver algo diferente. Nunca imaginé estar en medio de los cerros y hablar de campamentos, de armar una carpa entre las piedras o en la ladera de la montaña, o rodeado de nieve. De llevar el cuerpo al límite de esfuerzo y resistencia, a enfrentar temperaturas muy bajas y fuertes vientos. Soy hombre de campo y me entreveré con montañistas con experiencia. Pasé de mi lugar en el mundo en la llanura a las alturas de la cordillera. Todo esto fue sin dudas un desafío personal, pero el gran desafío era allá, en la altura.
"Desafiando a las alturas" es el resumen de casi un año que tardó mi viaje desde el primer día de entrenamiento, llegar muy cerca de la cumbre y regresar.

José Emilio Burucúa Diario de Nantes
885.33

Con la misma amenidad y erudición de sus Cartas norteamericana, Cartas del Mediterráneo Orientaly sus Cartas berlinesas, José Emilio Burucúa narra su larga estadía académica en Nantes, con gran rigor y mucho sentido del humor, ofreciéndole al lector un recorrido cultural, artístico, histórico, musical, cinematográfico, turístico y gastronómico. Apenas llegado a la ciudad francesa, Burucúa abre así su fascinante `Diario de Nantes´: «Esta ciudad es una mezcla interesante de gótico, barroco neoclásico a la francesa y arquitectura muy contemporánea (erigida sobre todo en los barrios destruidos por los bombardeos aliados en 1943-44; aquí cerca, en Saint-Nazaire, los nazis tenían una de las bases más temibles de submarinos en todo el Atlántico). […]A partir del siglo XVII y hasta bien entrado el XIX, no hubo en Nantes institución, ni vínculo social, ni empresa, ni plan o proyecto personal o comunitario, que no estuviese condicionado por la trata de esclavos. El comercio infame, en principio a cargo de los armadores de los astilleros ubicados en las bocas del Loira, volcó sus ganancias inconmensurables en la comodidad y belleza de la arquitectura, en las costumbres galantes de una burguesía que se aprovisionaba de los objetos, las telas, los alimentos más refinados y caros de las Indias Orientales y Occidentales. Mi contacto con la barbarie se está convirtiendo en un hábito, que mantiene los ojos de mi mente abiertos, sin piedad, frente a las lacras del mundo…»

Bapsi Sidhwa Water
1212.08

The renowned author Bapsi Sidhwa and the equally renowned filmmaker Deepa Mehta share a unique artistic relationship: Mehta adapted Sidhwa’s novel Cracking India for her brilliant film Earth, and here, Sidhwa adapts Mehta’s controversial film Water to the printed page.Set in 1938, against the backdrop of Gandhi’s rise to power, Water follows the life of eight-year-old Chuyia, abandoned at a widow’s ashram after the death of her elderly husband. There, she must live in penitence until her death. Unwilling to accept her fate, she becomes a catalyst for change in the widows’s lives. When her friend Kalyani, a beautiful widow-prostitute, falls in love with a young, upper-class Gandhian idealist, the forbidden affair boldly defies Hindu tradition and threatens to undermine the ashram’s delicate balance of power. This riveting look at the lives of widows in colonial India is ultimately a haunting and lyrical story of love, faith, and redemption.

Deaglán de Bréadún Power Play
712.7

This is the first comprehensive analysis of how Sinn Féin has transformed itself from ‘political wing’ of the Republican movement to a mainstream force in Irish politics. In this book by one of Ireland’s leading political journalists, Deaglán de Bréadún provides an incisive account of how the party has arrived at a position, in the space of one generation, where it is in power north of the border and knocking on the door of government in the south. Despite recent controversies and scandals arising from alleged sexual abuse by republican activists, and the violent legacies of the Troubles, the party has maintained its popularity. The outsiders have now become insiders in the political game. How did this dramatic transformation come about? Based on detailed research as well as interviews with a wide range of figures inside Sinn Féin and across the Irish political spectrum, Deaglán de Bréadún unveils a fascinating and indispensable analysis of a party that has come in from the cold. The book also draws on the author’s experiences covering the Northern Ireland peace process as well as politics in the Republic for many years, to reveal the most fascinating and unmissable political story of 2015.

Dan Harvey Soldiering Against Subversion
712.7

During a time of high tension, terror and fear, the Irish Defence Forces faced the very real threat of the Irish State being plunged into a savagely sectarian civil war. The southern state faced a breakdown of law and order, severely challenged by manhunts, prison breaks, shoot-outs, kidnappings, bank robberies, subversive training camps, bomb-making factories, illegal weapons shipments, and border operations. Soldiering Against Subversion is the dramatic and previously untold story of the Irish Defence Forces’ critical role in defending the southern state against paramilitary forces during the worse years of the modern Troubles. Retired Lieutenant Colonel, Dan Harvey, describes the major operations via in-depth interviews with Irish Defence veterans, revealing how these brave men and women protected the state on home soil. From the kidnapping of Shergar and Quinsworth CEO Don Tidey, the manhunt and capture of INLA leader Dessie ‘the Border Fox’ O’Hare, the pandemonium as the Irish army quells a violent prison riot in Mountjoy in 1972, to the Irish navy’s efforts to thwart gun-running off the coast of Kerry, these first-hand accounts reveal the true story of the fight for the nation’s democracy.

David Lloyd Circle
139.2

David Lloyd's verses are a genuine contribution to the literature of haiku. They capture an image, a moment in time, and engrave it in the memory for all time. This is the mark of good haiku, as indeed it is of good verse in general. His haiku can excite the senses, as in:See the sharp needlesforever sewing the skyTo the pine branches.Free of irony, except the irony of nature which sets the tone, calls the shots, with a not always recognizable impartiality, their perceptions are too clear for comment:Flowing downstreamBetween the mountain pines,A bird's embryo.Dogwood blossoms,Their edges turning brown,Recalling legends.Poetic magic raised to a higher power by the author's pen and ink vignettes, complementing each verse. Eye pleasing and evocative, these sketches open little doors to experience.

Thomas Hobbes Leviathan (Wisehouse Classics - The Original Authoritative Edition)
69.95

LEVIATHAN or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil-commonly referred to as Leviathan-is a book written by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) and published in 1651 (revised Latin edition 1668). Its name derives from the biblical Leviathan. The work concerns the structure of society and legitimate government, and is regarded as one of the earliest and most influential examples of social contract theory. Leviathan ranks as a classic western work on statecraft comparable to Machiavelli's The Prince. Written during the English Civil War (1642-1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature («the war of all against all») could only be avoided by strong undivided government… (more on www.wsiehouse-classics.com)

Carl Abbott Imagining Urban Futures
1711.47

<P>Carl Abbott, who has taught urban studies and urban planning in five decades, brings together urban studies and literary studies to examine how fictional cities in work by authors as different as E. M. Forster, Isaac Asimov, Kim Stanley Robinson, and China Miéville might help us to envision an urban future that is viable and resilient. Imagining Urban Futures is a remarkable treatise on what is best and strongest in urban theory and practice today, as refracted and intensely imagined in science fiction. As the human population grows, we can envision an increasingly urban society. Shifting weather patterns, rising sea levels, reduced access to resources, and a host of other issues will radically impact urban environments, while technology holds out the dream of cities beyond Earth. Abbott delivers a compelling critical discussion of science fiction cities found in literary works, television programs, and films of many eras from Metropolis to Blade Runner and Soylent Green to The Hunger Games, among many others.</P>
