The era of the printed book is at a crossroad. E-readers are flooding the market, books are available to read on cell phones, and companies such as Google, Amazon, and Apple are competing to command near monopolistic positions as sellers and dispensers of digital information. Already, more books have been scanned and digitized than were housed in the great library in Alexandria. Is the printed book resilient enough to survive the digital revolution, or will it become obsolete? In this lasting collection of essays, Robert Darnton - an intellectual pioneer in the field of this history of the book - lends unique authority to the life, role, and legacy of the book in society.

Juan Ponce de Leon was an important figure in the history of the Spanish colonisation of what are today Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, and the south-eastern United States. While many people are familiar with the name Ponce de Leon, only a handful know the historical truth of what Ponce did -- and did not -- do! This is the most extensive biography to date of this important but misrepresented figure in the early colonial history of America. Written by one of America's foremost experts on 15th and 106th century exploration and discovery, this book dispels the myths about Ponce de Leon and credits him with discoveries for which he previously has not been credited. The author assembles the most extensive collection ever of facts, reasoned inference, translations of critical documents, original maps, historical illustrations, and photographs bearing upon the life and legacy of this important figure. Ponce's life and legacy are examined in the context of Spain's ambitions in the New World during the 106th century.

1949. William Burroughs llega a la Ciudad de México acompañado de Joan, su esposa, la hijastra Julie y Billy, su pequeño hijo. Destinado a convertirse en el más importante escritor experimental contemporáneo de los Estados Unidos, el aún joven Bill apenas coquetea con la idea de escribir una novela. Ignora que dos años después habrá de matar accidentalmente a Joan de un tiro en la cabeza, durante un estúpido juego de Guillermo Tell. 1990. Un muy joven Bef descubre por accidente la obra de Burroughs, escritor contracultural y patriarca de la generación beatnik. Saber que vivió en su ciudad y caminó por las mismas calles habrá de obsesionarlo durante los siguientes años. Uncle Bill narra la historia del desencuentro cultural de Burroughs con México, sus tropiezos previos antes de llegar huyendo al aún provinciano Distrito Federal y el fatal accidente, así como su fugaz paso por la cárcel de Lecumberri y la relación de amor-odio que un lector puede establecer con la obra de un autor del que lo separan tiempo y espacio, así como el extraño vínculo que parece unirlos. Uncle Bill es la más ambiciosa novela gráfica de uno de los más importantes narradores e historietistas mexicanos.
