(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...

(P/B) 1876
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0074

With the centennial year of the United States as the target of this historical novel, Gore Vidal again mounts a glorious expedition into that grimy and intricate activity called politics. And this is politics as it ought to be: gossip, corruption, money, dinner parties, more corruption, and all the tacky panoply of power. Into the rarefied atmosphere of a world where money has begun to talk very loudly - usually through the mouths of people called Astor - step Charles Schuyler and his daughter Emma. Charlie is the unacknowledged bastard so...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0113

Jim Willard, former high-school athlete and clean-cut boy-next-door-, is haunted by the memory of a romanctic adolescent encounter with his friend Bob Ford.

(P/B) THE WISDOM OF CROWDS
WHY THE MANY ARE SMARTER THAN THE FEW AND HOW COLLECTIVE WISDOM SHAPES BUSINESS, ECONOMICS, SOCIETY AND NATIONS
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0035

In this landmark work, NEW YORKER columnist James Surowiecki explores a seemingly counter-intuitive idea that has profound implications. Decisions taken by a large group, even if the individuals within the group aren't smart, are always better than decisions made by small numbers of 'experts'. This seemingly simply notion has endless and major ramifications for how businesses operate, how knowledge is advanced, how economies are (or should be) organised and how nation-states fare. With great erudition, Surowiecki ranges across the discipli...

(P/B) LINCOLN
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0078

In the hazardous fictional terrain of his historical novels, Gore Vidal is never especially kind to American history in general, or to its icons in particular. Yet in this brilliantly realised study of Abraham Lincoln, he paints a surprising and near-heroic picture of the man who led America through four of the most divisive and dangerous years of the nation's history. Observed alternately by his loved ones, his rivals and his future assassins, Lincoln at first appears as an inept and naive backwoods lawyer. People in this novel are not av...

(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...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0133

On a Tuesday in May, in her thirty-fifth year, Rachel shot her husband dead. He stumbled backward with an odd look of confirmation on his face, as if some part of him had always known she'd do it.

(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...

(P/B) A MIDSUMMER'S EQUATION
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0104

When a man's body is discovered at the base of some cliffs in the small resort town of Hari Cove, the police at first suspect a tragic accident, a misstep that cost the man his life.

Manabu Yukawa, the physicist known as 'Detective Galileo', is in Hari Cove to speak at a conference on a planned underwater mining operation, and finds himself drawn into the case. Did the murd...

(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) EMPIRE
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0075

Here is the story of arguably America's finest hour; of the time when the twentieth century dawned, Queen Victoria died, and America, basking deliciously in excess wealth, rather thought it might snap up an empire of its own. Yet while politicians muse over the potential of China or the Philippines - even Russia - empires are being built at home; railway empires; industrial empires; newspaper empires. Into this arena float the delectable Caroline Sanford, putative heiress and definite catch. Caroline is an oddity; she has been raised in Fr...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0040

Lil Binewski, born a Boston aristocrat, was in her time the most stylish of geeks. That is to say she made her living by biting the heads off live chickens in front of a Carnival audience.

Throughout each pregnancy Lil gobbles pesticides, experiments with drugs and douses herself with radiation to ensure that she prodcues infants grotesque enough to keep the turnstiles clicking. She does. Arturo the Aqua Boy is a limbless megal...

(P/B) THE GOLDEN AGE
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0008

THE GOLDEN AGE is the final, eponymous novel that brings to an end what Gabriel Garcia Marquez has called ‘Gore Vidal’s magnificent series of historical novels or novelised histories’, NARRATIVES OF EMPIRE. Like a latter day Anthony Trollope, Vidal masterfully balances the personal with the political, the invented with the historical fact. His heroine from Hollywood, Caroline Sanford, reappears in Washington as President Roosevelt schemes to get the USA into the war by provoking the Japanese. In the novel’s ten year span America is master ...
