(P/B) ON HISTORY
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In these essays, about a quarter of them previously unpublished, Eric Hobsbawm reflects upon the theory, practice and development of history and its relevance to the modern world.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) DRESS YOUR FAMILY IN CORDUROY AND DENIM
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0018

David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveller. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his new book David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives - a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can ...

(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) 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) THE HUNDRED-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0094

Sitting quietly in his room in an old people's home, Allan Karlsson is waiting for a party he doesn't want to begin. His one-hundredth birthday party to be precise. The Mayor will be there. The press will be there. But, as it turns out, Allan will not... Escaping (in his slippers) through his bedroom window, into the flowerbed, Allan makes his getaway. And so begins his picaresque and unlikely journey involving criminals, several murders, a suitcase full of cash, and incompetent police. As his escapades unfold, Allan's earlier life is reve...

(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) SHANTARAM
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0095

A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld. In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum.

(P/B) GLOBALISATION, DEMOCRACY AND TERRORISM
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0126

An engaging and provocative survey of our current globalised world from one of Britain's foremost political historians. In this collection of illuminating, incisive and thought-provoking essays, Eric Hobsbawm examines every aspect of the issues that have inspired the greatest debate - not only among politicians, academics and commentators but among all of us - in recent years: that is, the effects of globalisation, the plight of democracy and the threat of terrorism. As we are only too aware, all of these have the power to affect our daily...

(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) 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) 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) THE MOUNTAIN SHADOW
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0102

The first glimpse of the sea on Marine Drive filled my heart, if not my head. I turned away from the red shadow. I stopped thinking of that pyramid of killers, and Sanjay's improvidence. I stopped thinking about my own part in the madness. And I rode, with my friends, into the end of everything. Shantaram introduced millions of readers to a cast of unforgettable characters through Lin, an Australian fugitive, working as a passport forger for a branch of the Bombay mafia. In The Mountain Shadow, the long-awaited sequel, Lin must find his wa...

(P/B) IF THIS IS A MAN - THE TRUCE
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0103

With the moral stamina and intellectual pose of a twentieth-century Titan, this slightly built, duitful, unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth, steadfastly to think it through, and then to render it comprehensible in lucid, unpretentious prose. He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contempible. What has survived in Levi's writing isn't just his memory of the unbearable, but also, in THE PERIODIC TABLE and THE WRENCH, his delight in...

(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. (From the publisher) "The work is challenging, learned, brilliant in its analytical po...

(P/B) BURR
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0077

In 1804, Colonel Aaron Burr, Vice-President of the United States, shot and killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Three years later, on the order of President Thomas Jefferson, he was tried for treason: for plotting to dismember the United States. Gore Vidal, romping iconoclastically through American history, debunks, in this historical novel of Burr's life, the common and casually held notion of the man as a scoundrel and an adventurer. Instead he appears as one of the 'host of choice spirits' forced to live among coarse, materialistic, hyp...
