El 21 de junio de 1940, cuando Francia capituló en Compiègne, Hitler había ganado la guerra. Aparte del territorio del Reich, dominaba Noruega, Polonia, Checoslovaquia, Países Bajos, Bélgica y Francia. Era aliado de Italia y tenía relaciones muy amistosas con Franco, que le debía la victoria en la guerra civil. Se aprestaba a establecer pactos o a ocupar Finlandia, Dinamarca, Rumanía, Hungría, Bulgaria, Croacia... Además, mediante un tratado, se había repartido Polonia con Stalin, y el III Reich recibía de la URSS todo tipo de materias primas. Disponía de un territorio con enormes reservas humanas, industriales, económicas, agrícolas y mineras, que colaboraría más o menos forzadamente con el esfuerzo militar alemán. Se ha reiterado que la «pequeña Alemania» sucumbió aplastada por el peso de la mitad de las naciones del mundo. Y eso es verdad sólo a partir de finales de 1941. Antes no. Con la forja de un poderosísimo partido y la remilitarización del país, Hitler había devuelto a Alemania su lugar perdido entre las naciones europeas. Por tanto, ¿por qué el III Reich sufrió la más espantosa de las mortandades y destrucciones? David Solar, autor de El último día de Hitler, analiza, en una apasionante narración, la derrota alemana y aborda páginas ineludibles del conflicto mundial, como la ocupación de Noruega, el pacto con Stalin, la batalla del Atlántico, operaciones fundamentales como Félix o Malta, las limitaciones de la Luftwaffe, el desacierto de la campaña de África, el infierno que supuso la batalla de Stalingrado o las destrucciones de Hamburgo y Dresde. David Solar desgrana uno a uno los errores que llevaron a Alemania a perder la guerra que tenía ganada en junio de 1940, cuando Gran Bretaña se quedó sola ante la maquinaria militar que había forjado Adolf Hitler. «Estamos ante una obra de lectura asequible y agradecida para quienes deseen conocer cómo condujo Hitler la guerra y por qué la perdió». Xavier Casals, Clío «Un referente de la bibliografía española sobre la Segunda Guerra Mundial». Charo Ramos, Diario de Cádiz «Las dotes del periodista y del divulgador, sobresalientes en el caso de David Solar, se ponen de relieve en esta detallada crónica». Octavio Ruiz-Manjón, El Cultural «Un trabajo de recopilación de fuentes y de análisis excepcional». El Diario Montañés «Este libro es una síntesis modélica de los errores que condujeron a Alemania a la derrota». Borja Martínez, Leer

More than two decades ago, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen arrived on the fashions scene when the business was in an artistic and economic rut. Both wanted to revolutionize fashion in a way no one had in decades. They shook the establishment out of its bourgeois, minimalist stupor with daring, sexy designs. They turned out landmark collections in mesmerizing, theatrical shows that retailers and critics still gush about and designers continue to reference. Their approach to fashion was wildly different—Galliano began as an illustrator, McQueen as a Savile Row tailor. Galliano led the way with his sensual bias-cut gowns and his voluptuous hourglass tailoring, which he presented in romantic storybook-like settings. McQueen, though nearly ten years younger than Galliano, was a brilliant technician and a visionary artist who brought a new reality to fashion, as well as an otherworldly beauty. For his first official collection at the tender age of twenty-three, McQueen did what few in fashion ever achieve: he invented a new silhouette, the Bumster. They had similar backgrounds: sensitive, shy gay men raised in tough London neighborhoods, their love of fashion nurtured by their doting mothers. Both struggled to get their businesses off the ground, despite early critical success. But by 1997, each had landed a job as creative director for couture houses owned by French tycoon Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH. Galliano’s and McQueen’s work for Dior and Givenchy and beyond not only influenced fashion; their distinct styles were also reflected across the media landscape. With their help, luxury fashion evolved from a clutch of small, family-owned businesses into a $280 billion-a-year global corporate industry. Executives pushed the designers to meet increasingly rapid deadlines. For both Galliano and McQueen, the pace was unsustainable. In 2010, McQueen took his own life three weeks before his womens' wear show. The same week that Galliano was fired, Forbes named Arnault the fourth richest man in the world. Two months later, Kate Middleton wore a McQueen wedding gown, instantly making the house the world’s most famous fashion brand, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art opened a wildly successful McQueen retrospective, cosponsored by the corporate owners of the McQueen brand. The corporations had won and the artists had lost. In her groundbreaking work Gods and Kings, acclaimed journalist Dana Thomas tells the true story of McQueen and Galliano. In so doing, she reveals the revolution in high fashion in the last two decades—and the price it demanded of the very ones who saved it.

Cuando Malinalli conoce a Hernán Cortés, asume que se trata del propio Dios Quetzalcóatl que regresa a liberar a su pueblo. Los dos se enamoran apasionadamente, pero este amor pronto es destruido por la desmedida sed de conquista, poder y riqueza de Cortés. A lo largo de la historia de México Malinalli/Malinche ha sido conocida por su traición al pueblo indio. Pero recientes investigaciones históricas han demostrado que Malinalli fue la mediadora entre dos culturas, la hispánica y la indígena; y entre dos lenguas, el español y el náhuatl. Lo que Esquivel ha hecho en esta novela es desafiar la mitología tradicional mediante un retrato muy temperamental del Adán y la Eva de la cultura mestiza, Cortés y Malinalli, con la caída del imperio azteca como telón de fondo. Contada con el lirismo de la tradición cantarina y pictórica del náhuatl, Laura Esquivel nos brinda un mito fundacional de la cultura híbrida del Nuevo Mundo y una extraordinaria historia de amor.

A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole's hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures" (Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times).

A Business Week, New York Times Business, and USA Today Bestseller "Ambitious and readable . . . an engaging introduction to the oddsmakers, whom Bernstein regards as true humanists helping to release mankind from the choke holds of superstition and fatalism." -The New York Times "An extraordinarily entertaining and informative book." -The Wall Street Journal "A lively panoramic book . . . Against the Gods sets up an ambitious premise and then delivers on it." -Business Week "Deserves to be, and surely will be, widely read." -The Economist "[A] challenging book, one that may change forever the way people think about the world." -Worth "No one else could have written a book of such central importance with so much charm and excitement." -Robert Heilbroner author, The Worldly Philosophers "With his wonderful knowledge of the history and current manifestations of risk, Peter Bernstein brings us Against the Gods. Nothing like it will come out of the financial world this year or ever. I speak carefully: no one should miss it." -John Kenneth Galbraith Professor of Economics Emeritus, Harvard University In this unique exploration of the role of risk in our society, Peter Bernstein argues that the notion of bringing risk under control is one of the central ideas that distinguishes modern times from the distant past. Against the Gods chronicles the remarkable intellectual adventure that liberated humanity from oracles and soothsayers by means of the powerful tools of risk management that are available to us today. "An extremely readable history of risk." -Barron's "Fascinating . . . this challenging volume will help you understand the uncertainties that every investor must face." -Money "A singular achievement." -Times Literary Supplement "There's a growing market for savants who can render the recondite intelligibly-witness Stephen Jay Gould (natural history), Oliver Sacks (disease), Richard Dawkins (heredity), James Gleick (physics), Paul Krugman (economics)-and Bernstein would mingle well in their company." -The Australian
