(P/B) BECOMING A MAN
HALF A LIFE HISTORY
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0062

He grew up in a small town in New England in the 1950s, watching Lassie, going to church, getting straight A's at school, a scholar destined for success. But he already had a secret, and his public life with family and friends was already a constant round of ventriloquism as he played the joker and pretended to be the same as everyone else. For Paul Monette was gay. BECOMING A MAN is about growing up gay, and about the tyranny and self-denial of the closet - one man's struggle, for half his life, to come out. From the white-bread 1950s thr...

(P/B) RUBICON
THE TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY OF THE ROMAN REPUBLIC
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0014

The Roman Republic was the most remarkable state in history. What began as a small community of peasants camped among marshes and hills ended up ruling the known world. Rubicon paints a vivid portrait of the Republic at the climax of its greatness - the same greatness which would herald the catastrophe of its fall. It is a story of incomparable drama. This was the century of Julius Caesar, the gambler whose addiction to glory led him to the banks of the Rubicon, and beyond; of Cicero, whose defence of freedom would make him a byword for el...

(P/B) MESSY
HOW TO BE CREATIVE AND RESILIENT IN A TIDY-MINDED WORLD
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0116

The urge to tidiness seems to be rooted deep in the human psyche. Many of us feel threatened by anything that is vague, unplanned, scattered around or hard to describe. We find comfort in having a script to rely on, a system to follow, in being able to categorise and file away. We all benefit from tidy organisation - up to a point. A large library needs a reference system. Global trade needs the shipping container. Scientific collaboration needs measurement units. But the forces of tidiness have marched too far. Corporate middle managers a...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0117

Rome was first ruled by kings, then became a republic. But in the end, after conquering the world, the Republic collapsed. Rome was drowned in blood. So terrible were the civil wars that the Roman people finally came to welcome the rule of an autocrat who could give them peace. 'Augustus,' their new master called himself: 'The Divinely Favoured One'. The lurid glamour of the dynasty founded by Augustus has never faded. No other family can compare for sheer unsettling fascination with its gallery of leading characters. Tiberius, the great g...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0115

The grandson of biologist T. H. Huxley, Aldous Huxley had a privileged background and was educated at Eton and Oxford despite an eye infection that left him nearly blind.

But it is as the author of his celebrated portrayal of a nightmare future society, BRAVE NEW WORLD (1932), that Huxley is remembe...

(P/B) OLD FILTH
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0101

Long ago, Old Filth was a Raj orphan - one of the many young children sent 'Home' from the East to be fostered and educated in England. Jane Gardam's novel tells his story, from his birth in what was then Malaya to the extremities of his old age. In so doing, she not only encapsulates a whole period from the glory days of British Empire, through the Second World War, to the present and beyond, but also illuminates the complexities of the character known variously as Eddie, the Judge, Fevvers, Filth, Master of the Inner Temple, Teddy and Si...

Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0112

Yet in the final decades of his life he was also ignored by most working scientists, his ideas opposed by even his closest friends. This stunning downfall can be traced to Einstein's earliest successes and to personal qualities that were at first his best assets. Einstein's imagination and self-confidence served him well as he sought to reveal the ...

History is gossip,' says a protagonist in Washington, D.C., 'but the trick is determining which gossip is history.'

Young Clay Overbury, Senator Burden Day's assistant, has both a modest background and immense ambitions. Extremely handsome, oozing charm and seemingly dedicated to the Senator's cause, he is also duplicitous, con...
