Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation. El origen de las especies es un libro de Charles Darwin publicado el 24 de noviembre de 1859, considerado uno de los trabajos precursores de la literatura científica y el fundamento de la teoría de la biología evolutiva. Como Darwin era un científico eminente, sus conclusiones fueron tomadas en serio y las pruebas que presentaba generaron un debate científico, filosófico y religioso. El debate sobre el libro contribuyó a la campaña de Thomas Huxley y sus compañeros del X Club para secularizar la ciencia, promoviendo el naturalismo científico.

From Revelations to the Mayan Calendar's 2012 prophecy, all major cultures and religions warn of a darkness to come. . . a supernal event that will be the modern-day equivalent of Noah's Flood. In the 13th century, Europe suffered through war, famine, and the evils of the pogrom-acts of hatred that massacred tens of thousands of Jews. In 1346, at the height of corruption, the Black Plague struck the Eurasian continent, wiping out half the world's population while spawning a new legend: The Grim Reaper. In GRIM REAPER: End of Days, international best-selling author Steve Alten takes us on a classic hero's journey of good versus evil, transformation and redemption. Far more than it seems, the story draws frightening parallels between the lack of morality that corrupted 13th century Europe and the greed that has mired our own society in economic collapse, two endless wars-and a very real covert biological program, exposed by the author, which could lead to a global pandemic and our own prophesied self-destruction in 2012 . . . 666 years after the Black Death struck Europe!

El 13 de octubre de 1972, un avión de la Fuerza Aérea Uruguaya, que llevaba al equipo de rugby Old Christians—y muchos de sus amigos y familiares— se estrelló en medio de la cordillera de los Andes. Tenía que sobrevivir es el relato cautivante y desgarrador de esa larga experiencia con la muerte que impulso a uno de sus sobrevivientes, Roberto Canessa, a convertirse en uno de los cardiólogos infantiles más conocidos en el mundo. Cuando atendía a sus compañeros heridos en medio de la carnicería devastadora que produjo el accidente, Roberto Canessa, que en aquel entonces tenía diecinueve años y era un estudiante de segundo año de medicina, se sintió la persona más afortunada del planeta: estaba vivo— y por eso mismo, debía estar eternamente agradecido. Mientras el grupo famélico luchaba por sobrevivir, más allá de los límites de lo imaginable, Canessa jugó un rol fundamental para salvar a los demás sobre-vivientes, atravesando, con un compañero, la cordillera de los Andes, examines y sin ningún tipo de equipo, en busca de ayuda. Esta delgada línea entre la vida y la muerte se transformó en un catalizador para el resto de su vida. Tenía que sobrevivir trata de un iluminador relato de esperanza y determinación, solidaridad e ingenio, que aporta une nueva perspectiva a una historia mundialmente concocia. Canessa traza un paralelismo único u fascinante entre su trabajo diagnosticando cardiopatías congénitas muy complejas en niños recién nacidos u fetos, y las decisiones difíciles de vida o muerte que fue forzado a tomar en los Andes. Con ternura y humanismo, Canessa nos incita a preguntarnos: ¿Que hacer cunado todo está tu contra?

This novel by D. H. Lawrence was first published in 1928 and subsequently banned. Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature. The first edition was printed privately in Florence, Italy, with assistance from Pino Orioli; an unexpurgated edition could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. (A private edition was issued by Inky Stephensen's Mandrake Press in 1929.) The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical relationship between a working-class man and an upper-class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words. Lady Chatterley's Lover was inspired by the long-standing affair between Frieda, Lawrence's German wife, and an Italian peasant who eventually became her third husband; Lawrence's struggle with sexual impotence; and the circumstances of his and Frieda's courtship and the early years of their marriage.

The World War II aviator and author of The Little Prince tells his true story of flying a reconnaissance plane during the Battle of France in 1940. When the Germans first invaded France in May of 1940, the French Air Force had a mere fifty reconnaissance crews, twenty-three of which served in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Group II/33. After only a few days, seventeen of the crews in Saint-Exupéry’s unit had already perished. Flight to Arras is the harrowing story of a single mission over the French town of Arras, an endeavor Saint-Exupéry realized the futility of even as he witnessed it unfolding. Filled with tension, emotion, philosophy, and historical detail, and penned by a master storyteller, this extraordinary memoir serves as a record of a little-known chapter of the Second World War, and an unforgettable portrait of the brave souls who fought despite desperate odds.

The President tells the story of a ruthless dictator and his schemes to dispose of a political adversary in an unnamed country usually identified as Guatemala. Drawing on his experience as a journalist writing under repressive conditions, Miguel Angel Asturias provides a blazing indictment of totalitarian government and its damaging psychological effects on society - from the harvest of terror to cowardice, to sycophancy, to treachery and intrigue, and the total sacrifice of human values to lust for power. Written in a language of freedom and originality, full of extraordinary symbolism, biting satire, poetry and dream sequences, with an imagination that is both lyrical and ferocious, The President is a surrealist masterpiece and one of the most influential books of the twentieth century.

Over 5 million people have fallen in love with Wonder and Auggie Pullman, the ordinary boy with the extraordinary face, who inspired a movement to Choose Kind. This special movie tie-in trade paperback edition features an eight-page full-color insert with photos from the film, a new introduction by the author, and a family discussion guide. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid--but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. Wonder, a #1 New York Times bestseller, begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" --indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
