El robo de valiosos volúmenes en el Museo de Audenas, propiedad del Barón del mismo nombre, impulsa a Thierry Dumont, su criado y amante de los libros, a investigar el caso. Pronto descubrirá, gracias a las informaciones de un loco obsesionado con la obra de Nostradamus, que tal robo, al igual que otros ocurridos en la ciudad, está relacionado con la búsqueda del Liber Hespericus, un libro de antiquísimos orígenes, mediante el cual supuestamente Nostradamus habría hecho sus vaticinios. Al tiempo, la fría y distante Elizabeth McPherson, escritora de novelas de alta literatura, de visita en Toulouse, apuesta con otra escritora que es capaz de escribir un bestseller de aventuras en dos meses. Durante una cena con el Barón y su criado descubre la historia del Liber Hespericus, y decide inspirarse en eso, y en sus anfitriones. Thierry Dumont y Elizabeth McPherson se verán arrastrados a una investigación sobre el fabuloso libro mientras, en las sombras, una Orden milenaria prepara el camino para el surgimiento del Gran Monarca anunciado desde tiempo inmemorial… ¿Se cumplirá la profecía? Una novela de aventuras, misterio y romance, con un desenlace trepidante y lleno de fantasía y acción, en la que se revela la más inquietante de las profecías de Michel Nostradamus acerca del destino de Europa.

La joven Bessie espera en un sótano lleno de instrumentos de tortura y pintado con grabados de figuras diabólicas a que su captor, Charlie, que la ha llevado hasta allí con engaños, regrese para matarla y beber su sangre. Mientras eso sucede, rememora los acontecimientos de los últimos cuatro meses, en especial los que la han llevado a esa situación, como su relación con Charlie Granger, un gótico aficionado a los vampiros, o el hallazgo en la casa del novio de su tía, propiedad anteriormente del padre de Charlie, de un diario que narra los crímenes de una secta de bebedores de sangre a inicios del siglo XX, dirigida por el siniestro doctor Koestler. Paralelamente, la policía de Londres investiga el asesinato de una adolescente que apareció flotando en el Támesis, desangrada y con una extraña marca grabada en el cuerpo. Es la segunda chica que aparece en tales circunstancias en los últimos seis meses en Londres, y se sospecha que pueda haber un asesino en serie suelto. El Mal parece haberse originado en una mansión de Surrey, también propiedad de los Granger, con fama de haber sido morada de un vampiro, pero las apariencias a veces engañan.

Translated by Gregory Rabassa, winner of the National Book Award for Translation, 1967 Horacio Oliveira is an Argentinian writer who lives in Paris with his mistress, La Maga, surrounded by a loose-knit circle of bohemian friends who call themselves "the Club." A child's death and La Maga's disappearance put an end to his life of empty pleasures and intellectual acrobatics, and prompt Oliveira to return to Buenos Aires, where he works by turns as a salesman, a keeper of a circus cat which can truly count, and an attendant in an insane asylum. Hopscotch is the dazzling, freewheeling account of Oliveira's astonishing adventures.

The discovery of the New World raised many questions for early modern scientists: What did these lands contain? Where did they lie in relation to Europe? Who lived there, and what were their inhabitants like? Imperial expansion necessitated changes in the way scientific knowledge was gathered, and Spanish cosmographers in particular were charged with turning their observations of the New World into a body of knowledge that could be used for governing the largest empire the world had ever known. As María M. Portuondo here shows, this cosmographic knowledge had considerable strategic, defensive, and monetary value that royal scientists were charged with safeguarding from foreign and internal enemies. Cosmography was thus a secret science, but despite the limited dissemination of this body of knowledge, royal cosmographers applied alternative epistemologies and new methodologies that changed the discipline, and, in the process, how Europeans understood the natural world.

Excavations over many years in the Peruvian Andes and coastal regions have revealed that the village settlements on the west coast of South America were one of the early centers of world civilization. One of these settlements, La Galgada, flourished from 3000 B.C. to 1700 B.C. Its extraordinarily complete cultural remains help to reconstruct a picture of human life, health, activities, and trade relations as they were 4,000 years ago and allow us to enter the mental and artistic life of this early civilization. The location of La Galgada on Peru's Tablachaca River midway between the highlands and the coast caused it to be influenced by the culture of both those regions. The remains found at La Galgada tie together important textile collections from the coastal region with important architectural remains from the Andean highland to give a picture of a complete preceramic culture in ancient Peru. Numerous illustrations provide an exciting visual catalog of the finds at La Galgada. What also makes La Galgada such a significant site are the changes in art and architecture that can be documented in considerable detail from about 2500 B.C. to about 1700 B.C. During that period, La Galgada and the other preceramic communities in northern Peru were transformed with a rapidity that must have seemed shocking and revolutionary to their inhabitants. These changes record the first appearance of the powerful and intimidating Chavín culture that was to dominate the region for the next thousand years. They also allow us to watch a people change and adapt as they try to cope with the powerful pressure of technical and social development in their region.

The leading historians who are the authors of this work offer a highly original account of one of the most important transformations in Western culture: the change brought about by the discovery and development of printing in Europe. Focusing primarily on printed matter other than books, The Culture of Print emphasizes the specific and local contexts in which printed materials, such as broadsheets, flysheets, and posters, were used in modern Europe. The authors show that festive, ritual, cultic, civic, and pedagogic uses of print were social activities that involved deciphering texts in a collective way, with those who knew how to read leading those who did not. Only gradually did these collective forms of appropriation give way to a practice of reading--privately, silently, using the eyes alone--that has become common today. This wide-ranging work opens up new historical and methodological perspectives and will become a focal point of debate for historians and sociologists interested in the cultural transformations that accompanied the rise of modern societies. Originally published in 1989. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

"Containing the latest research and insights of academics and development practitioners pursuing political and economic reforms in the ASEAN region, Building Inclusive Democracies in ASEAN recognizes that a well-functioning democracy is part of what ultimately fosters inclusive growth and development. Inequitable access to democratic processes and mechanisms produce government policies and initiatives that are inconsistent with the needs of the majority. The chapters include empirical research on the symptoms and effects of traditional patron-client politics, experiences, insights, analyses, and policy recommendations, as well as reflections, on reform efforts along the lines of citizens' participation, transparency, and evidence-based policymaking"--

This work is a history of the Pacific, the ocean that became a theatre of power and conflict shaped by the politics of Europe and the economic background of Spanish America. There could only be a concept of &�the Pacific once the limits and lineaments of the ocean were set and this was undeniably the work of Europeans. Fifty years after the Conquista, Nueva Espaą and Peru were the bases from which the ocean was turned into virtually a Spanish lake.

This casebook gathers a collection of ambitious essays about both parts of the novel (1605 and 1615) and also provides a general introduction and a bibliography. The essays range from Ram?n Men?ndez Pidal's seminal study of how Cervantes dealt with chivalric literature to Erich Auerbachs polemical study of Don Quixote as essentially a comic book by studying its mixture of styles, and include Leo Spitzer's masterful probe into the essential ambiguity of the novel through minute linguistic analysis of Cervantes' prose. The book includes pieces by other major Cervantes scholars, such as Manuel Dur?n and Edward C. Riley, as well as younger scholars like Georgina Dopico Black. All these essays ultimately seek to discover that which is peculiarly Cervantean in Don Quixote and why it is considered to be the first modern novel.
