Año 844, los vikingos atacan las costas de España. Después de haber sometido Irlanda y media Inglaterra, asolar Francia y sojuzgar nada menos que París y Nantes, los normandos desembarcan en la Torre de Hércules, en La Coruña. En tierras gallegas serán derrotados por las huestes del reino de Asturias. Pasarán después a sangre y fuego Lisboa, Cádiz y Sevilla, pero también aquí terminarán vencidos por los ejércitos del emir Abderramán. Todo ello en un tiempo en el que crecían los grandes monumentos en las faldas del Naranco, avanzaba la repoblación de Castilla, los cristianos intentaban la reconquista de León y el emirato de Córdoba vivía turbias intrigas políticas. En esta nueva novela, José Javier Esparza aborda este episodio fascinante de nuestra historia con una prosa tan bella como épica y desde el mayor rigor histórico. Una auténtica recreación de la España altomedieval.

El segundo volumen de la serie Historias parar A(r)mar la Historia incluye nuevos artículos de la Sección C, dedicada a México Colonial, con el objetivo de formular un nuevo inicio para sustentar mi hipótesis de autor de que al menos desde 1521, con la caída de Tenochtitlán, habría de nacer una nueva raza en el planeta, la raza latinoamericana. Como periodista, advierto de una vez para evitar decepciones a los puristas y atraer a otros lectores que no me he podido desprender de la obsesión por aplicar los hechos de la historia a la comprensión de nuestro presente en el primer cuarto del Siglo XXI. Así, no quise eludir consideraciones de carácter político, como el de que la teoría marxista sobre la violencia, en la Acumulación Original de la Riqueza, aplica perfectamente en situaciones como los fraudes electorales en México. Este segundo volumen de nuestras historias, también intenta sintetizar algunas de las corrientes políticas y enfoques ideológicos al análisis de la historia en los siglos XIX y XX. No se pretende que este libro, ni el que lo antecede, y el que probablemente seguirá se lean en orden. Cada artículo y libro de referencia tiene la intención de que pueda ser comprendido en forma unitaria para que cada lector decida que historias le sirven para formarse su propia visión de la historia. Por eso se proponen nuevas secciones. La F incluye trabajos sobre Latinoamerica, sus revoluciones e independencias, la G versa sobre la primera parte de El Capital, de Carlos Marx, tratando de hacerlo comprensible y práctico a los lectores de nuestros tiempos, sin ideologizarlo sino tratar de entenderlo como método de explicación del devenir de la historia. En esta misma sección consideraremos a otros autores clásicos y en forma muy sintética procuraremos conocer sus ideas, que también fueron las más influyentes en el mundo moderno a causa de nuestras deformaciones eurocentristas, pero que procuramos diferenciar y poner aparte de las originadas por los pensadores latinoamericanos.

Haunted all her life by feelings of terror and emptiness, forty-nine-year-old Urania Cabral returns to her native Dominican Republic - and finds herself reliving the events of l961, when the capital was still called Trujillo City and one old man terrorized a nation of three million. Rafael Trujillo, the depraved ailing dictator whom Dominicans call the Goat, controls his inner circle with a combination of violence and blackmail. In Trujillo's gaudy palace, treachery and cowardice have become a way of life. But Trujillo's grasp is slipping. There is a conspiracy against him, and a Machiavellian revolution already underway that will have bloody consequences of its own. In this 'masterpiece of Latin American and world literature, and one of the finest political novels ever written' (Bookforum), Mario Vargas Llosa recounts the end of a regime and the birth of a terrible democracy, giving voice to the historical Trujillo and the victims, both innocent and complicit, drawn into his deadly orbit.

En los últimos años de su vida, Dostoiévski (1821-1881) era a menudo considerado como un profeta por anticipar en sus manifestaciones y trabajos literarios acontecimientos que posteriormente verían su confirmación, tal es el caso del terrorismo. El escritor ruso escribió Los demonios (1871) basándose en la realidad del terrorismo ruso de la época, incorporando como referencia de los protagonistas de su novela nombres históricos de personajes conocidos del siglo XIX. La lectura de esa novela con la detallada disección que en ella se hace del comportamiento de los terroristas, así como la anticipación del terrorismo de carácter indiscriminado y masivo presente en esa obra, nos ayuda a comprender la realidad actual de ese fenómeno por desgracia tan actual, que condiciona la política de nuestras sociedades y, por lo tanto, nuestras vidas. En este libro, tomando como hilo conductor el fenómeno del terrorismo, partiendo de las ideas que emanan de los personajes de la novela, se transita hasta los nuevos demonios reales que amenazan nuestras vidas, haciendo que como corolario emerja El Gran Inquisidor, la emblemática figura de la novela del escritor ruso Los hermanos Karamázov (1880), reflejada en el Estado moderno que como coartada ala seguridad, en la que la humanidad aspira vivir, ofrece el cercenamiento de las libertades sociales que constituyen la base y el fundamento de nuestras sociedades democráticas.

Once in a great while a new novelist comes along who dazzles us with rare eloquence and humanity, with flawless storytelling and a unique understanding of another place and time. Takashi Matsuoka is just such a writer. His magnificent new novel, set amid the violence and beauty of nineteenth-century Japan, takes us beyond the epic tradition of James Clavell’s Shogun and into a majestic realm of samurai and geishas, ninjas and Zen masters. Brilliantly imagined, gloriously written, Cloud of Sparrows is at once a sweeping historical adventure and a love story of almost unbearable poignancy. It is storytelling on the grand scale from a novelist of astounding depth and grace. Cloud of Sparrows It is the dawn of the New Year, 1861. After two centuries of isolation, Japan has been forced to open its doors to the West, igniting a clash of cultures and generations. And as foreign ships threaten to rain destruction on the Shogun’s castle in Edo, a small group of American missionaries has chosen this time to spread the word of their God. Among them, Emily Gibson, a woman seeking redemption from a tormented past, and Matthew Stark, a cold-eyed killer with one more death on his mind. Neither realizes that their future in Japan has already been foreseen. For a young nobleman, Lord Genji, has dreamt that his life will be saved by an outsider in the New Year. Widely reviled as a dilettante, Lord Genji has one weapon with which to inspire awe. In his family, one in every generation is said to have the gift of prophecy. And what Lord Genji sees has struck fear in many around him. As the Shogun’s secret police chief plots Genji’s death--and the utter destruction of his entire clan--the young and untried lord must prove that he is more than the handsome womanizer of legend, famed lover of Edo’s most celebrated geisha, Lady Heiko, and that his prophetic powers are no mere fairy tale. Forced to escape from Edo and flee to his ancestral stronghold, the spectacular Cloud of Sparrows Castle, Genji joins his fate with Emily and Stark, unaware of the dark forces that drive them. Together with Genji’s uncle, Lord Shigeru, a legendary swordsman knee-deep in the blood of his own kin, and the enigmatic Lady Heiko, the unlikely band embarks on a harrowing journey through a landscape bristling with danger--to prepare for a final battle. Here, on a snowscape stained with blood, horror will mix with wonder, secrets will unravel, and love will duel with vengeance--as East and West, flesh and spirit, past and future, collide in ways no one--least of all Genji--could have imagined.

It’s been twenty years since Western State Hospital was closed down and the last of its inmates reintegrated into society. Francis Petrel was barely out of his teens when his family committed him to the asylum, after his erratic behavior culminated in a terrifying outburst. Now middle-aged, he leads an aimless, solitary life housed in a cheap apartment, periodically tended to by his sisters, and perpetually medicated to quiet the chorus of voices in his head. But a reunion on the grounds of the shuttered institution stirs something deep in Francis’s troubled mind: dark memories he thought he had laid to rest, about the grisly events that led to Western State Hospital’s demise. It begins in 1979, when twenty-one-year-old Petrel descends into the state-run purgatory of an overcrowded, understaffed Massachusetts mental hospital. Surrounded by inmates roaming the halls like drugged zombies and raving behind locked doors, well-meaning orderlies, jaded nurses, and patronizing doctors, Francis finds friendship with a motley assortment of fellow patients: a would-be Napoleon, a wise ex-firefighter, and a man obsessed with battling imagined devils. But there’s nothing imaginary about the young nurse found sexually assaulted and brutally murdered late one night after lights-out. The police suspect an inmate, while patients whisper about visions of a white-shrouded “angel.” But the striking and mysterious prosecuting attorney who arrives to investigate has her own chilling theory—about the grim, telltale “signature” left on the victim’s body, a string of unsolved sex killings, and a very real devil who, by chance or design, has come to turn a madhouse into a slaughterhouse. Now, with the past creeping back to haunt his thoughts, and nothing but a pencil and the bare walls of his bleak apartment, Francis surrenders to the overwhelming need to tell the story of those nightmarish days. But because the crime was never solved, it’s a story doomed to remain unfinished. Until, like Francis’s long-buried recollections, the killer resurfaces . . . with a vengeance. A tour de force narrative journey through the eerily unpredictable mind of an utterly unusual hero, The Madman’s Tale will keep even the most astute thriller reader uncertain, unnerved, and unable to resist the tantalizing twists and turns of this fiendishly suspenseful shadow show. From the Hardcover edition.

Noah Gordon’s acclaimed trilogy, spanning one thousand years in the lives of one uncommonly gifted family In The Physician, an orphan in eleventh-century London, Robert Cole, becomes a fast-talking swindler. As he matures, his strange gift—an acute sensitivity to impending death—never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer. Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but by claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world’s most renowned physician, Avicenna. Cole’s journey and love for a woman who must struggle against her only rival—medicine—make The Physician a riveting modern classic. In Shaman, Dr. Robert Judson Cole, nineteenth-century descendent of the first Robert Cole, travels from his ravaged Scottish homeland, through the operating rooms of antebellum Boston, to the cabins of frontier Illinois. In the wilderness he befriends the starving remnants of the Sauk tribe, who have fled their reservation. In the process, he absorbs their culture and learns native remedies that enrich his classical medical education. He marries a remarkable settler woman he had saved from illness. The Cole family is drawn into the bloody vortex of the Civil War, and their determination to survive in the midst of wilderness and violence will stay with the reader long after the final page. In Matters of Choice, Roberta Jeanne d’Arc Cole is the latest first-born descendant of Dr. Robert Cole. Favored to be named associate chief of medicine at a Boston hospital, she is married to a surgeon and owns a trophy residence in Cambridge as well as a summer house. But everything melts away. Her gender and her work at an abortion clinic cost her the hospital appointment. Her marriage fails. Crushed, she goes to her farmhouse in western Massachusetts, thinking to sell it, and finds an unexpected life. How she continues to fight for every woman’s right to choose, while acknowledging her own ticking clock and maternal yearning, makes this prize-winning third story of the Cole trilogy relevant and unforgettable.
