Breve historia del feudalismo (Spanish Edition)

$20.95

Here you will immerse yourself in the world of the Middle Ages, one filled with barbarians, Germanic tribes, Vikings, magnanimous kings, powerful lords, and audacious knights. Thorough in scope, this easy-to-follow book dismantles old dogmas and shines a light on the great conquests and military achievements of numerous medieval kingdoms. This book helps the reader discover the great changes that Europe underwent as the Germanic peoples made their mark across the continent, just as the Roman Empire went through its agonizing downfall and disintegration in the fifth century. A Brief History of Feudalism challenges old beliefs and images created around feudal government systems, so that the reader understands that is was not only a decadent period, but one in which the term peasant wasnt necessarily a term denoting slave. Through the use of new source material, this book will help us get a better sense of this dark historic period, one filled with invasions, internal conflicts, and warselements that will fascinate any fan of this historical period.

Mitos y falacias de la historia de Espana (Spanish Edition)

Mitos y falacias de la historia de Espana (Spanish Edition)

$18.95  $16.35

Los tiempos de tribulacion no son nuevos. Mas bien, parecen acompanar al hombre desde siempre: los gobernantes y los imperios cayeron como castillos de naipes, las hambrunas y las pestes diezmaron las poblaciones, las disputas religiosas se mancharon con sangre. Las respuestas del hombre ante la tribulacion tampoco lo son. Seneca sugeria lo siguiente hace casi dos mil anos: "Cuando no se puede sufrir algo, lo mejor es saberlo sufrir." Tal vez sea, por tanto, recomendable saber retroceder y recuperar en la sabiduria de nuestros antepasados las claves para afrontar los nuevos tiempos atribulados que se avecinan en toda vida. / The times of tribulation are not new. Rather, they seem to always accompany man: rulers and empires fell like houses of cards, famines and plagues decimated the population, religious disputes were stained with blood. The responses of men to the tribulation are not. Seneca suggested the following two thousand years ago: "When you can not suffer anything, it is best to know suffering." Perhaps it is therefore advisable to go back and retrieve knowledge in the wisdom of our forefathers the keys to facing the new troubled times ahead in every life. [Read more]

Cuentos Mexicanos - De Los Origenes a la Revolucion (Spanish Edition)

$23.90  $19.95

Myth and legend have existed in Mexico in prehispanic times as a means to transmit cosmogonical or ethological visions. During the colonial period short stories appear intertwined in the many chronicles, histories and writings of the conquistadores, priests and other men of letters. With the Diario de M xico (1805), the short story starts its long association with journalism, and appears along novels such as Jose Joaquin Fernandez de Lizardi's. Literary magazines also were a fertile environment, but it was in 1870, when Jose Maria Roa Barcena published "Noche al raso", an integrated recopilation, and Vicente Riva Palacio his "Cuentos del general" (1896), that the mexican short story began to acquire its prestige as a literary genre, to reach its high artistic level with Gutierrez Najera, Amado Nervo and other "modernists". During the twentieth century various tendencies appeared: the vanguardist school, along Alfonso Reyes, Julio Torri and others; the r... [Read more]

In Fern ndez's own Spanish version of her award-winning novel, Intaglio: A Novel in Six Stories, the reader discovers a tightly-woven coming-of-age novel made up of sensitive portraits of six extraordinary women born in the early twentieth century near the Texas-Mexican border who leave their imprint on the narrator, Nenita. By observing the lives of her various mentors, Nenita learns to rise above the limitations that culture of la frontera imposed on women of her mother's generation who nonetheless were able to find outlets for their creative expressions. When her mother's blue album which documents an important part of family history gets destroyed, Nenita sets out on a metaphorical journey in an attempt to find her identity amidst the cultural expressions of her community. The six stories deftly portray women struggling with their artistic expression in a culture that limits them. From Andrea, the actress, Amanda the seamstress, Filomena who constructs magnificent altars for the... [Read more]
