La vida del general de la Armada española, don Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta, tiene todos los ingredientes de una novela de aventuras: un protagonista de recio carácter que no se doblega ante la adversidad y que como prueba de su valor fue dejando en la mar pedazos de su cuerpo; batallas navales contra piratas en la mar del Sur; y con envidias y maniobras palaciegas en la corte de un rey loco. Un marino que combatió en el Mediterráneo, el Atlántico, el Pacífico y el Caribe hasta convertirse en el decisivo defensor de Cartagena de Indias ante el ataque de una descomunal fuerza inglesa que pretendía controlar las rutas comerciales de las colonias españolas. Esta biografía de Blas de Lezo, basada en una amplia investigación en archivos de varios países y cuya anterior versión fue en su día distinguida con una mención de honor por la Armada española, relata uno de los episodios más destacados de la centenaria rivalidad entre España e Inglaterra por el dominio de los mares.

Tradicionalmente, la figura del invicto y muy condecorado general Pablo Morillo, ha oscilado entre el olvido y el odio. Héroe de la Historia de España que inició su carrera militar como soldado de mar y tierra en las jornadas de Cabo San Vicente, Trafalgar y Bailén; alcanzó gloria durante la sangrienta guerra contra la Francia de Napoleón, y acabó por dirigir al ejército realista en América, su servicio fiel a la Corona y a la Patria ha sido siempre ignorado. Personaje clave de un convulso periodo de más de cien años marcado por los pronunciamientos y el caudillismo, inicio de un período de guerras civiles que teñirían de sangre Europa y América desde principios del siglo xix hasta bien entrado el siglo siguiente, la relevancia de sus acciones obliga a que nos acerquemos a los hechos que protagonizó a ambos lados del Atlántico de manera completamente objetiva, rigurosa y desapasionada. En ese contexto, la trascendencia de Pablo Morillo va más allá de su papel como jefe del ejército realista que se enfrentó a las fuerzas independentistas de Bolívar, o a su posterior participación en la Guerra Carlista. Su carrera y biografía resultan de especial interés para comprender toda la historia de la época y para volver a examinar algunos de los mitos que la han envuelto.

Before she was mother to global superstar Demi Lovato, she was just Dianna Hart. Dianna tells her story from the very beginning in this complete and genuinely affecting memoir. She had big plans of becoming a country music star, but her life went in a different direction than her dreams. She developed an eating disorder early in life to gain a sense of control in her strict upbringing. As she continued to struggle with body image and her obsession with being perfect her entire adult life, she was also met with other difficult situations. Her husband and father of her two eldest daughters, Dallas and Demi, had his own troubles that effected the entire family. She coped with alcohol and pills, forming a long-lasting addiction. She's had terrible lows but also some great highs as she watched her daughters break out in Hollywood to become strong, empowered young women. As a mother caring for daughters with addictions while continuing to battle her own, Dianna offers a unique perspective. And as a family, they have survived everything life has thrown at them and come away from it stronger than ever. Dianna tells her story of living through and surviving adversity--with tremendous strength, love and faith.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content: • An exclusive preview chapter from Jean M. Auel’s The Land of Painted Caves, on sale in hardcover March 29, 2011 • An Earth’s Children® series sampler including free chapters from the other books in Jean M. Auel’s bestselling series • A Q&A with the author about the Earth’s Children® series The Shelters of Stone opens as Ayla and Jondalar, along with their animal friends, Wolf, Whinney, and Racer, complete their epic journey across Europe and are greeted by Jondalar’s people: the Zelandonii. The people of the Ninth Cave of the Zelandonii fascinate Ayla. Their clothes, customs, artifacts, even their homes—formed in great cliffs of vertical limestone—are a source of wonder to her. And in the woman Zelandoni, the spiritual leader of the Ninth Cave (and the one who initiated Jondalar into the Gift of Pleasure), she meets a fellow healer with whom to share her knowledge and skills. But as Ayla and Jondalar prepare for the formal mating at the Summer Meeting, there are difficulties. Not all the Zelandonii are welcoming. Some fear Ayla’s unfamiliar ways and abhor her relationship with those they call flatheads and she calls Clan. Some even oppose her mating with Jondalar, and make their displeasure known. Ayla has to call on all her skills, intelligence, knowledge, and instincts to find her way in this complicated society, to prepare for the birth of her child, and to decide whether she will accept new challenges and play a significant role in the destiny of the Zelandonii. Jean Auel is at her very best in this superbly textured creation of a prehistoric society. The Shelters of Stone is a sweeping story of love and danger, with all the wonderful detail—based on meticulous research— that makes her novels unique. It is a triumphant continuation of the Earth’s Children® saga that began with The Clan of the Cave Bear. And it includes an amazing rhythmic poem that describes the birth of Earth’s Children and plays its own role in the narrative of The Shelters of Stone.

The Historia del Nuevo Mundo, set down by Father Bernabe Cobo during the first half of the seventeenth century, represents a singulary valuable source on Inca culture. Working directly frorn the original document, Roland Hamilton has translated that part of Cobo's massive manuscripts that focuses on the history of the kingdom of Peru. The volume includes a general account of the aspect, character, and dress of the Indians as well as a superb treatise on the Incas—their legends, history, and social institutions.

This book offers a comprehensive and unitary study of the philosophy of Francis Bacon, with special emphasis on the medical, ethical and political aspects of his thought. It presents an original interpretation focused on the material conditions of nature and human life. In particular, coverage in the book is organized around the unifying theme of Bacon’s notion of appetite, which is considered in its natural, ethical, medical and political meanings. The book redefines the notions of experience and experiment in Bacon’s philosophy of nature, shows the important presence of Stoic themes in his work as well as provides an original discussion of the relationships between natural magic, prudence and political realism in his philosophy. Bringing together scholarly expertise from the history of philosophy, the history of science and the history of literature, this book presents readers with a rich and diverse contextualization of Bacon’s philosophy.
