Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0059

Do lobsters feel pain? Did Franz Kafka have a sick sense of humour? What is John Updike’s deal anyway? And who won the Adult Video News’ Female Performer of the Year Award the same year Gwyneth Paltrow won her Oscar? David Foster Wallace answers these questions and more in his new book of hilarious non-fiction.

(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...

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

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0130

Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down. In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned - from the layout of the winding roads, to the colours of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren - an enigmatic artist ...

(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) THE END OF ALCHEMY
MONEY, BANKING AND THE FUTURE OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0134

The past twenty years saw unprecedented growth and stability followed by the worst financial crisis the industrialised world has ever witnessed. In the space of little more than a year what had been seen as the age of wisdom was viewed as the age of foolishness. Almost overnight, belief turned into incredulity. Most accounts of the recent crisis focus on the symptoms and not the underlying causes of what went wrong. But those events, vivid though they remain in our memories, comprised only the latest in a long series of financial crises si...

(P/B) BANDITS
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0053

BANDITS is a study of the social bandit or bandit-rebel - robbers and outlaws who are not regarded by public opinion as simple criminals, but rather as champions of social justice, as avengers or as primitive resistance fighters. Whether Balkan haiduks, Indian dacoits or Brazilian congaceiros, their spectacular exploits have been celebrated and preserved in story and myth. Bandits sets the historical figures against the ballads, legends and films they hane inspired. This substantially extended and revised new edition appears at a time whe...

(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...

(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) FRACTURED TIMES
CULTURE AND SOCIETY IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0091

An engaging and provocative look at culture, from one of our best-known historians. Born almost a hundred years ago in Vienna - the cultural heart of a bourgeois Mitteleurope - Eric Hobsbawm, who was to become one of the most brilliant and original historians of our age, was uniquely placed to observe an era of titanic social and artistic change. As the century progressed, the forces of Communism and Dadaism, Ibiza and cyberspace, would do battle with the bourgeois high culture fin-de-siecle Vienna represented - the opera, the Burgtheater,...

(P/B) BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0055

In his startling and singular new short story collection, David Foster Wallace nudges at the boundaries of fiction with inimitable wit and seductive intelligence. Among the stories are 'The Depressed Person', a dazzling and blackly humorous portrayal of a woman's mental state; 'Adult World', which reveals a woman's agonised consideration of her confusing sexual relationship with her husband; and 'Brief Interviews with Hideous Men', a dark, hilarious series of portraits of men whose fear of women renders them grotesque. Wallace’s stories pr...

(P/B) WHEN YOU ARE ENGULFED IN FLAMES
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0044

David Sedaris’s remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this new book of stories. Sedaris proceeds from bizarre conundrums of daily life - the etiquette of having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger or how to soundproof your windows with LP covers against neurotic songbirds - to the most deeply resonant human truths. Taking in the parasitic worm that once lived in his mother-in-law’s l...
