Viktoria y Timofei son dos eximios pilotos rusos que defienden a su patria de la invasión nazi. Hábiles en los aviones pero inexpertos en cuestiones del amor, deberán recorrer un largo camino para lograr la felicidad. Durante 1941, Alemania invade la URSS y el caos se apodera de toda Rusia. En cada ciudad se insta a la población a tomar las armas para defender a la Madre Patria. Siguiendo este llamado, Viktorya Vasilieva parte de su querido Moscú, y deja atrás a su familia para unirse a los regimientos femeninos de aviación. Allí conocerá las crueldades de la guerra, volará junto a entrañables compañeras y conocerá al amor de su vida. Timofei Yakovlev es un experimentado piloto curtido en la Guerra de Invierno con Finlandia. Ya ha perdido toda ilusión sobre combates nobles y muertes heroicas. Pero la llegada del regimiento femenino, y de una joven piloto en particular, le hará reavivar la pasión a la hora de volar. ¿Puede una persona, que creció entre combates aéreos, amoldarse a la paz y formar una familia? ¿Puede sobrevivir el amor, cuando los crudos recuerdos se interponen en la vida cotidiana? Ojos azules de Moscú alterna la crudeza de la guerra y las vivencias que soportó el pueblo soviético durante la invasión alemana en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, con una romántica historia de amor que tiene que luchar con todas sus armas para triunfar.

George Orwell’s 1984 takes on new life with extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity. “Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”—The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s masterpiece, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.” Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

Memoirs are an essential part of the history of the Twentieth century, not only because it is written by one of the century's great poets but because Neruda was involved as a writer and a politician with an extraordinary range of people and events. He writes vividly about the friends he knew, from Lorca, Picasso and Ghandi to those events that he experienced, from the Spanish Civil War to his political career in Chile. Neruda was a poet, an Ambassador and Presidential candidate, as well as being the most prolific and popular poet of his time.

Open Veins of Latin America

Open Veins of Latin America

Author: Eduardo Galeano
Publisher: NYU Press
ISBN: 0853459916
Pages: 360
Year: 1997-01-01
Since its U.S. debut a quarter-century ago, this brilliant text has set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. It is also an outstanding political economy, a social and cultural narrative of the highest quality, and perhaps the finest description of primitive capital accumulation since Marx. Rather than chronology, geography, or political successions, Eduardo Galeano has organized the various facets of Latin American history according to the patterns of five centuries of exploitation. Thus he is concerned with gold and silver, cacao and cotton, rubber and coffee, fruit, hides and wool, petroleum, iron, nickel, manganese, copper, aluminum ore, nitrates, and tin. These are the veins which he traces through the body of the entire continent, up to the Rio Grande and throughout the Caribbean, and all the way to their open ends where they empty into the coffers of wealth in the United States and Europe. Weaving fact and imagery into a rich tapestry, Galeano fuses scientific analysis with the passions of a plundered and suffering people. An immense gathering of materials is framed with a vigorous style that never falters in its command of themes. All readers interested in great historical, economic, political, and social writing will find a singular analytical achievement, and an overwhelming narrative that makes history speak, unforgettably. This classic is now further honored by Isabel Allende's inspiring introduction. Universally recognized as one of the most important writers of our time, Allende once again contributes her talents to literature, to political principles, and to enlightenment.

The State and Revolution (1917), by Vladimir Lenin, describes the role of the State in society, the necessity of proletarian revolution, and the theoretic inadequacies of social democracy in achieving revolution to establish the dictatorship of the proletariat. The State and Revolution is considered to be Lenin's most important work on the state and has been called by Lucio Colletti "Lenin's greatest contribution to political theory". According to the Marxologist David McLellan, "the book had its origin in Lenin's argument with Bukharin in the summer of 1916 over the existence of the state after a proletarian revolution. Bukharin had emphasised the 'withering' aspect, whereas Lenin insisted on the necessity of the state machinery to expropriate the expropriators. In fact, it was Lenin who changed his mind, and many of the ideas of State and Revolution, composed in the summer of 1917 - and particularly the anti-Statist theme - were those of Bukharin".

Este libro es un striptease sentimental envuelto en papel de periódico y conservado a 20 grados bajo cero Se puede leer como una novela de formación, de amor, de muerte, de reflexión, de estrés, de periodismo, de literatura, de los escalofríos del scoop, en medio de un hilarante choque cultural que enreda al autor y al lector en las aspas del gigante ruso. Este libro refleja el resultado de 11 años de periodismo y de búsqueda incesante de historias en Rusia, que llevaron al autor a remotos y pintorescos rincones de la antigua Unión Soviética: Baikonur, el lago Baikal, Yekaterimburgo, Yakutia, Chernóbil, pero sobre todo Yásnaia Poliana, la finca donde nació, creó, vivió y fue enterrado Lev Tolstói, verdadero guía de este viaje. Este libro también es una guía para perderse. Para perderse por Moscú, por sus calles, barrios e iglesias, pero ante todo es una guía para perderse entre sus gentes, entre personajes reales que pasan por literarios (desde el embalsamador de Lenin, al sexólogo que conserva el pene de Rasputín, pasando por taxistas uzbekos forofos del Real Madrid, veteranos de guerra, modelos, oligarcas, inventores locos, cosmonautas, pintores, Putin, escritores, ex agentes del KGB, Kaspárov, niños de la guerra, ex combatientes de la División Azul o los últimos bolcheviques); y entre personajes literarios que pasan por reales (el príncipe Bolkónski, Natasha Rostova, el doctor Zhivago). En este paseo por Moscú conviven dos Rusias, la real y la irreal, preexistente y ficticia, que llegó a Occiente encuadernada en forma de novela. Una mirada distinta sobre Rusia, en las antípodas de la visión altanera y ensañada del periodista occidental enviado a Moscú. Una mirada sin Kaláshnikov. CRÍTICAS - "Un libro brillante que recuerda, por el uso de la metáfora, al mejor Umbral" - Felipe Sahagún, El Cultural - "Pueden buscar el libro, leerlo y guardarlo en la estantería junto al 'Limónov' de Carrère o 'La nariz de Stalin' de McLean de con un suspiro de felicidad." - Luis Alemany, El Mundo - "Un análisis de antropólogo que con maña de cirujano abre con exquisita precisión las tripas de una nación que vive todavía desubicada, aún en plena ebullición capitalista, pero con la mirada siempre puesta en su pasado soviético reciente." - Pablo Oliveira y Silva, Público EL AUTOR Daniel Utrilla Vizmanos (Madrid, 1976). Fue corresponsal en Rusia para el diario El Mundo desde 2000 a 2011. Cubrió la actualidad informativa de ese país y de las repúblicas que conformaron la antigua Unión Soviética («todos lo que sé del Asia Central lo he aprendido de los taxistas uzbekos, tayikos de Moscú», confiesa). Desde 2011 trabaja en el canal ruso RT en español. Está afincado en Moscú, escribe ficción, propaga con entusiasmo la fe madridista por Eurasia sin que nadie se lo pida y dice no haber perdido la esperanza de encontrar palmeras de chocolate en el espacio postsoviético.

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Testing trilogy comes a sweeping new fantasy series, perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Sarah J. Maas. Twins Carys and Andreus were never destined to rule Eden. With their older brother next in line to inherit the throne, the future of the kingdom was secure. But appearances—and rivals—can be deceiving. When Eden’s king and crown prince are killed by assassins, Eden desperately needs a monarch, but the line of succession is no longer clear. With a ruling council scheming to gain power, Carys and Andreus are faced with only one option—to take part in a Trial of Succession that will determine which one of them is worthy of ruling the kingdom. As sister and brother, Carys and Andreus have always kept each other safe—from their secrets, from the court, and from the monsters lurking in the mountains beyond the kingdom’s wall. But the Trial of Succession will test the bonds of trust and family. With their country and their hearts divided, Carys and Andreus will discover exactly what each will do to win the crown. How long before suspicion takes hold and the thirst for power leads to the ultimate betrayal?

A runaway international bestseller and winner of Spain’s top literary prize, Little Indiscretions is part ingeniously entertaining whodunit and part sparkling social satire. Business is slow for Nestor Chaffino, pastry chef to the rich and famous, until he’s invited to cater a party in a villa on the Costa del Sol. When Nestor is found frozen to death in a walk-in freezer with a notebook in his hand, the party guests gathered that evening are the natural suspects. But who could have it in for a harmless cook? The answer, it turns out, is just about everyone who happens to be staying in the house. Nestor, while quietly stirring his sauces and whisking his egg whites, had decided to publish a compendium of gastronomic secrets that revealed, along with the culinary tricks of his trade, more than a few damning details of the hosts’ and houseguests’ private lives. To what lengths would they go to ensure that Nestor maintained a more permanent sense of discretion? Not since Nick and Nora Charles’s last cocktail party has such a merry band of mischief makers convened in one place. Little Indiscretions marks the discovery of a phenomenal writer with tremendous flair. It’s a gourmet treat readers will pounce on. From the Hardcover edition.
