(P/B) PRIMITIVE REBELS
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0125

Reissued with a new introduction by Owen Jones, Primitive Rebels is the perfect guide to the revolutions that shaped western civilisation, and the bandits, reformers and anarchists who have fought to change the world. Social agitation is as essential a part of public life today as it has ever been. In Eric Hobsbawm's masterful study, Primitive Rebels, he shines a light on the origins of contemporary rebellion: Robin Hood, secret societies, revolutionary peasants, Mafiosi, Spanish Civil War anarchy, pre-industrial mobs and riots - all of wh...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0061

Somewhere in the not-so-distant future the residents of Ennet House, a Boston halfway house for recovering addicts, and students at the nearby Enfield Tennis Academy are ensnared in the search for the master copy of INFINITE JEST, a movie said to be so dangerously entertaining its viewers become entranced and expire in a state of catatonic bliss...

(P/B) ALTERED PASTS
COUNTERFACTUALS IN HISTORY
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0138

A bullet misses its target in Sarajevo, a would-be Austrian painter gets into the Viennese academy, Lord Halifax becomes British prime minister in 1940: seemingly minor twists of fate on which world-shaking events might have hinged. Alternative history has long been the stuff of parlour games, war-gaming and science fiction, but over the past few decades it has become a popular stomping ground for serious historians. Richard J. Evans now turns a critical, slightly jaundiced eye on the subject. Altered Pasts examines the intellectual fallou...

(P/B) THE GOLDFINCH
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0086

Aged thirteen, Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father, survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother, and down the years clings to the thing that most reminds him of her: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld. As he grows up, Theo learns to glide between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty a...

(P/B) GIRL WITH CURIOUS HAIR
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0057

In these stories, the author renders the bizarre normal and the absurd hilarious, from the eerily real , almost holographic evocations of historical figures, to overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians. In the title story, punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) ME TALK PRETTY ONE DAY
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0019

Anyone that has read NAKED and BARREL FEVER, or heard David Sedaris speaking live or on the radio will tell you that a new collection from him is cause for jubilation. His recent move to Paris from New York inspired these hilarious new pieces, including 'Me Talk Pretty One Day', about his attempts to learn French from a sadistic teacher who declares that 'every day spent with you is like having a caesarean section'. His family is another inspiration. 'You Can't Kill the Rooster' is a portrait of his brother, who talks incessant hip-hop sla...

(P/B) NAKED
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0015

A riotous collection of memoirs which explores the absurd hilarity of modern life and creates a wickedly incisive portrait of an all-too-familiar world. It takes Sedaris from his humiliating bout with obsessive behaviour in 'A Plague of Tics' to the title story, where he is finally forced to face his naked self in the company of lunatics. At this soulful and moving moment, he brushes cigarette ashes from his pubic hair and wonders what it all means. This remarkable journey into his own life follows a path of self-effacement and a lifelong ...

(P/B) CREATION
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0079

Son of a Persian prince and a Creek sorceress, grandson of the prophet Zoroaster, friend of Xerxes the Great King, ambassador to the courts of India, China and Greece, Cyrus Spitama is also the narrator of "Creation" and probably the greatest namedropper who ever lived. There were a lot of names to drop in the fifth century BC. Pericles, Thucydides, Sophocles, Confucius, Pythagoras and even Buddha walk on and off stage as the great and ancient empires reach their apex. And Cyrus, ever eager for knowledge and greatly given to gossip, learns...

(P/B) THE BROOM OF THE SYSTEM
Εκδότης: ABACUS

The mysterious disappearance of her great- grandmother and twenty-five other elderly inmates from a Shaker Heights nursing home has left Lenore Stonecipher Beadsman emotionally stranded on the edge of the Great Ohio Desert. But that is simply one problem of many for the hapless switchboard operator, seriously compounded by her ongoing affair with boss Rick Vigorous; the TV stardom of her talking cockatiel, Vlad the Impaler; and other minor catastrophes that threaten to elevate Lenore's search for love and self-detemination to new heights o...

Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the post: it is from an ex-boyfriend of nine years who is engaged to someone else.

(P/B) THE AGE OF CAPITAL
1848-1875
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0072

The first and best, major treatment of the crucial years 1848-1875, a penetrating analysis of the rise of capitalism throught the world. In the 1860s a new word entered the economic and political vocabulary of the world: 'capitalism'. The global triumph of capitalism is the major theme of history in the decades after 1848. It was the triumph of a society which believed that economic growth rests on competitive private enterprise, on success in buying everything in the cheapest market (including labour) and selling it in the dearest. An eco...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0128

In these essays, about a quarter of them previously unpublished, Eric Hobsbawm reflects upon the theory, practice and development of history and its relevance to the modern world. These wide-ranging papers reflect Professor Hobsbawm's lifelong concern with the relations between past, present and future. They deal, among many other subjects, with the problems of writing history, its abuses and the historian's responsibilities; with the history of society and 'history from below'; with Marx and current historical trends or fashions; with Eur...

(P/B) THE AGE OF REVOLUTION
1789-1848
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0045

Eric Hobsbawm traces with brilliant clarity the transformation brought about in every sphere of European life by the Dual Revolution - the 1789 French revolution and the Industrial Revolution that originated in Britain. This enthralling and original account highlights the significant sixty years when industrial capitalism established itself in Western Europe and when Europe secured the domination over the rest of the world it was to hold for a century.

Εκδότης: ABACUS

Do lobsters feel pain? Did Franz Kafka have a sick sense of humour? What is John Updike’s deal anyway?

(P/B) HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD
TALES OF MARX AND MARXISM
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0070

In the 144 years since Karl Marx's Das Kapital was published, the doctrine that bears his name has been embraced by millions in the name of equality, and just as dramatically has fallen from grace with the retreat of communism from the western world. But as the free market reaches its extreme limits in the economic and environmental fallout, a reassessment of capitalism's most vigorous and eloquent enemy has never been more timely. Eric Hobsbawm provides a fascinating and insightful overview of Marxism. He investigates its influences and a...

(P/B) VIVA LA REVOLUCION
HOBSBAWM ON LATIN AMERICA
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0132

Viva La Revolucion is Hobsbawm's magisterial work on Latin America, the fruit of forty years' writing about the continent. Eric Hobsbawm (1917-2012) wrote that Latin America was the only region of the world outside Europe which he felt he knew well and where he felt entirely at home. He claimed this was because it was the only part of the Third World whose two principal languages, Spanish and Portuguese, were within his reach. But he was also, of course, attracted by the potential for social revolution in Latin America. After the triumph o...
