A #1 international bestseller reminiscent of the works of Roberto Bolaño, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and Edward Rutherford—a page-turning historical epic, set in early eighteenth-century Spain, about a military mastermind whose betrayal ultimately leads to the conquest of Barcelona, from the globally popular Catalonian writer Albert Sánchez Piñol. Why do the weak fight against the strong? At 98, Martí Zuviría ponders this question as he begins to tell the extraordinary tale of Catalonia and its annexation in 1714. No one knows the truth of the story better, for Martí was the very villain who betrayed the city he was commended to keep. The story of Catalonia and Barcelona is also Martí’s story. A prestigious military engineer in the early 1700s, he fought on both sides of the long War of the Spanish Succession between the Two Crowns—France and Spain—and aided an Allied enemy in resisting the consolidation of those two powers. Politically ambitious yet morally weak, Martí carefully navigates a sea of Machiavellian intrigue, eventually rising to a position of power that he will use for his own mercenary ends. A sweeping tale of heroism, treason, war, love, pride, and regret that culminates in the tragic fall of a legendary city, illustrated with battle diagrams, portraits of political figures, and priceless maps of the old city of Barcelona, Victus is a magnificent literary achievement that is sure to be hailed as an instant classic..

Aripa frântă - Mihail Victus Preview:

„Cu multă vreme în urmă, am fost pus în situația de a-mi vedea îndeplinită cea mai mare dorință, aceea de-a publica o carte. Reușisem să adun într-un fișier suficiente povestiri încât să alcătuiască un volum. Entuziasmat și plin de încredere, mi-am compus cu grijă mesajele către edituri. Am primit doar un singur răspuns, prin care mi se propunea să-mi finanțez singur publicarea cărții. Prețul nu era exagerat. Dacă făceam puține economii, puteam să-mi văd numele în biblioteca familiei, alături de ceilalți autori pe care-i admiram. Nimic nu m-ar fi bucurat mai mult. Acum, după mai bine de doisprezece ani, câteva mii de pagini scrise și-un roman recent publicat, mă felicit că nu m-am lăsat învins de tentație. Altfel, ar fi trebuit să-mi schimb numele, doar ca să nu figurez în CV cu volumul respectiv. Nu erau povestiri slabe acolo, dar nu reușisem încă să scap de influențele lui Hemingway, Faulkner, Bukowski etc. Între timp, cred că mi-a reușit. Proza scurtă m-a ajutat să ajung aici. Am putut să experimentez cu tot felul de idei și stiluri, până ce am reușit să-mi aud propria voce. Din cauza asta, o parte din textele următoare pot fi considerate experimente. Nu au legătură între ele, așa că pot fi citite în orice ordine. Sper să vă placă măcar pe jumătate cât mi-a plăcut mie să le scriu.” (Mihail Victus).

Multilingualism in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age - Albrecht Classen Preview:

Bi- and multilingualism are of great interest for contemporary linguists since this phenomenon deeply reflects on language acquisition, language use, and sociolinguistic conditions in many different circumstances all over the world. Multilingualism was, however, certainly rather common already, if not especially, in the premodern world. For some time now, research has started to explore this issue through a number of specialized studies. The present volume continues with the investigation of multilingualism through a collection of case studies focusing on important examples in medieval and early modern societies, that is, in linguistic and cultural contact zones, such as England, Spain, the Holy Land, but also the New World. As all contributors confirm, the numerous cases of multilingualism discussed here indicate strongly that the premodern period knew considerably less barriers between people of different social classes, cultural background, and religious orientation. But we also have to acknowledge that already then human communication could fail because of linguistic hurdles which prevented mutual understanding in religious and cultural terms..

Red Rising - Pierce Brown Preview:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pierce Brown’s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. “Red Rising ascends above a crowded dys­topian field.”—USA Today NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BUZZFEED, AND SHELF AWARENESS “I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.” “I live for you,” I say sadly. Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.” Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he toils willingly, trusting that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so. Praise for Red Rising “[A] spectacular adventure . . . one heart-pounding ride . . . Pierce Brown’s dizzyingly good debut novel evokes The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies, and Ender’s Game. . . . [Red Rising] has everything it needs to become meteoric.”—Entertainment Weekly “Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler “Red Rising is a sophisticated vision. . . .

Dreambook - Sebastian Preview:

“Now come the Shapers of the ancient days To change all to dust or gold. Like a golden Sun is revealed by the passing Clouds, so these secrets now unfold.” DreamBook shares the mythology of The Prooimia, a tale of a little girl who meets an Ælve queen and is told that a son with great power would be incarnated through her. The Prooimia continues into her adult life, and regales with stories about her translocation inside of trees, her encounter with the Hobgoblin Horde, the death of her husband, and her abduction and encounter with a Wolvlinga. This encounter leads to a great battle between four Ælves and thousands of Waelwulfas, Kwizir and Melchizedecks. DreamBook also contains The Book after the Prooimia – Jaddamiah Jabberwocky. The story continues with a certain Jaddamiah Jabberwocky, who sets off from the same village as Hyperion (the little girl from The Prooimia), to fight the Meline Dragon with a glaive that is not his own, in a town he has never been to. It is a most fascinating tale, filled with magickal creatures, monsters and dwarves, a dragon, nymphs and dryads. It speaks of dwhëels who save the day and climaxes with the Battle of qêl Dmâ, where thousands are slain and the sibling shapeshifters – Búbgaz ‘the Destroyer’ and Búbkalu ‘he who makes those who run stand still’ – exact the will of their Bele Kaadom ‘he who overpowers with doom’. More importantly, it is a tale of the mighty power of the Ælves. The Ælves!.

Depuis la Révolution, les armées sont à la fois l'outil de l'Etat et l'incarnation de la Nation. Le surgissement de la procédure pénale dans l'univers des opérations révèle le décalage entre les exigences de l'état militaire et celles de la société civile contemporaine.
