Terra e Água by , Book Resume:

Depois de recuar durante 30 anos, o problema da subnutrição tem vindo a crescer novamente desde 2008. Ninguém sabe como vão ser alimentadas as nove mil milhões de pessoas no ano 2050. A maior preocupação é a África, onde em muitos dos lugares quase metade da população passa fome. Juntos, a Zâmbia, Moçambique e a Tanzânia têm água e terra suficiente para alimentar todo o continente africano. Mas o que se nos apresenta na realidade é totalmente diferente: os pequenos agricultores não evoluem, 70 a 80 por cento da população vive de uma agricultura de subsistência com garantia de pobreza. Terras aráveis são mal aproveitadas ou nem o são; os resultados das colheitas poderiam ser muitíssimo melhores se fossem explorados os alimentos adequados, se a terra fosse adubada corretamente, se houvesse uma gestão de solos profissional. As queimadas, a produção de carvão e a caça com fogo atacam o Meio Ambiente e o clima. O que leva a estas dificuldades? O que impede os pequenos agricultores de África a terem acesso ao conhecimento agrícola, a inputs agrícolas e mercados adequados? Onde falharam os 50 anos de Ajuda de Cooperação para o Desenvolvimento, em que foram investidos centenas de milhões de euros? Face à crescente bomba social, vários governos apostam agora nos investidores agrícolas estrangeiros para salvarem a agricultura africana. No entanto, muitos destes investidores foram agora apelidados de ladrões de terras sem escrúpulos e muitas das vezes os seus empreendimentos falharam. Será que serviu de lição a outros investidores? Será que os investidores poderão ajudar a mobilizar o enorme potencial agrícola e hídrico da África Austral? Será que os investidores, na função de parceiros, transmitem perspetivas aos pequenos agricultores e ajudam, desta forma, a estabilizar a segurança alimentar e, por último, será que impulsionam ou abrandam o desenvolvimento rural?

Antología de poesía chilena Vol. II by Teresa Calderón,Lila Calderón,Thomas Harris Book Resume:

En este segundo tomo de la Antología de poesía chilena se reúne la promoción poética que comenzó a escribir después del golpe de Estado de 1973. La promoción NN, como la denominó uno de sus integrantes. Hay en esta poesía una heterogeneidad extrema y una certeza histórica: la violencia y la muerte latinoamericana. Esta promoción solo resiste la única clasificación que da el dolor, la represión, la intemperie. Expuestos en este espacio que podríamos llamar “la voz de los 80”, se confunden edades poéticas y tiempos de publicación, cuando las hubo. Nunca la poesía chilena fue más golpeada y nunca respondió con más fuerza y resistencia para seguir diciendo “aún nos queda la palabra”.

Sonara. Volumen II by Fernando Andrés Reyes Díaz Book Resume:

Consternados y perplejos, los jóvenes sobrevivientes del voluntariado deben introducirse en los desconocidos túneles de Sonara para poder escapar. Divididos y sin su líder, son guiados por un inesperado aliado del pueblo a través de los oscuros laberintos subterráneos hacia un refugio temporal en medio del bosque. No obstante, las confianzas se han roto, el miedo se ha apoderado de ellos y poco a poco, el anhelo de venganza surge en sus almas, deseosas de cobrar sangre por sus compañeros caídos en un afán de hacer justicia. Solos y sin ayuda externa, deben enfrentarse a la dura realidad de verse atrapados, a sabiendas de que el tiempo es escaso, la vida es un regalo y a la dramática realidad de los acontecimientos que poco a poco van confluyendo hasta llegar a un punto en donde deben luchar no solo por sobrevivir, sino por evitar sacar lo peor de sí mismos en un ambiente hostil donde ser blando equivale a la muerte, mientras se buscan respuestas a las innumerables preguntas que surgen de aquél enigmático pueblo, atormentado por una influencia oscura que poco a poco va revelando sus tenebrosos secretos. Ya no se huye por el miedo, sino que se plantea resistencia ante la maldad humana que se abalanza sobre ellos, en una lucha no sólo contra un enemigo externo, sino contra los horrores que pueden surgir de sus propias mentes que de a poco, parecen corromperse más a la crónica y enigmática oscuridad que asola a Colbuco.

La pugna y otros cuentos del Limari by Kalitû Ardiles Irarrazabal Book Resume:

La Pugna y Otros Cuentos rescata historias de pueblos polvorientos que vieron llegar la modernidad a duras penas, lentamente, entre microbuses que se fueron haciendo leyenda, entre arrieros buenos para el vino y curanderos que salvaron más de alguna vida gracias a sus yerbas y sus manos milagrosas. Nos conduce por caminos de tierra donde convergen amistades eternas, maldiciones que se hicieron populares, borrachos notables y el amor desmesurado e incomprendido entre un pato loco y una gallina irresponsable. Una antología llena de simpatía que retrata lo mejor de nuestro campo, cuna de historias orales, fábulas y leyendas que trascienden más allá de ese propio tiempo que las vio nacer.

Atlas of a Lost World by Craig Childs Book Resume:

From the author of Apocalyptic Planet comes a vivid travelogue through prehistory, that traces the arrival of the first people in North America at least twenty thousand years ago and the artifacts that tell of their lives and fates. In Atlas of a Lost World, Craig Childs upends our notions of where these people came from and who they were. How they got here, persevered, and ultimately thrived is a story that resonates from the Pleistocene to our modern era. The lower sea levels of the Ice Age exposed a vast land bridge between Asia and North America, but the land bridge was not the only way across. Different people arrived from different directions, and not all at the same time. The first explorers of the New World were few, their encampments fleeting. The continent they reached had no people but was inhabited by megafauna—mastodons, giant bears, mammoths, saber-toothed cats, five-hundred-pound panthers, enormous bison, and sloths that stood one story tall. The first people were hunters—Paleolithic spear points are still encrusted with the proteins of their prey—but they were wildly outnumbered and many would themselves have been prey to the much larger animals. Atlas of a Lost World chronicles the last millennia of the Ice Age, the violent oscillations and retreat of glaciers, the clues and traces that document the first encounters of early humans, and the animals whose presence governed the humans’ chances for survival. A blend of science and personal narrative reveals how much has changed since the time of mammoth hunters, and how little. Across unexplored landscapes yet to be peopled, readers will see the Ice Age, and their own age, in a whole new light.

Two Medieval Occitan Toll Registers from Tarascon by William D. Paden Book Resume:

Two Medieval Toll Registers from Tarascon presents an edition, translation, and discussion of two vernacular toll registers from fourteenth and fifteenth-century Provence. These two registers are a valuable new source for the economic, linguistic, and transportation history of medieval France, offering a window onto the commercial life of Tarascon, a fortified town on the east bank of the Rhône between Avignon and Arles. William D. Paden discusses the developing fiscal policy of the counts of Provence, for whom the tolls were collected, and the practice and vocabulary of medieval toll-keeping. An afterword considers the toll registers in relation to the poetry of troubadours, arguing that the realism of the registers and the idealism of troubadour poetry overlapped in the world of medieval Tarascon.

El Chupacabras by Adam Rubin Book Resume:

From the bestselling author of Dragons Love Tacos comes a whimsical re-telling of the chupacabra folktale, written in a blend of English and Spanish A long time ago, a girl named Carla lived on a goat farm with her father, Hector. One night, a goat disappeared from the farm and turned up flat as a pancake. Only one creature could do that--El Chupacabras, the goatsucker! Legend has it that El Chupacabras is a fearsome beast, but you can't believe everything you hear...and sometimes the truth is even more interesting. Told in equal parts English and Spanish by bestselling author Adam Rubin, and cinematically illustrated by acclaimed Hollywood creature creator Crash McCreery, this lighthearted take on a modern legend is not told in the traditional bilingual style. Each sentence is half-Spanish/half-English followed by a repetition of the same line translated the other way around. This mirroring technique allows the languages to intermingle equally. A fun and unique way to introduce either Spanish or English to new readers. A note from author Adam Rubin: "I decided to tell this story in an unusual way to explore the beauty of harmony. It's easy to dismiss the unfamiliar, but compassion takes a little more effort. With so many people trumpeting divisiveness right now, it's more important than ever to teach kids that there is more than one way to understand the world."

Little do they know that candelabras are the chupacabra’s third-favorite food . . . and he isn’t about to stop there. This chupacabra has quite the appetite, and the goats are in for a big surprise!

Law and History in Cervantes' Don Quixote by Susan Byrne Book Resume:

Law and History in Cervantes’ Don Quixote is a deep consideration of the intellectual environment that gave rise to Cervantes’ seminal work. Susan Byrne demonstrates how Cervantes synthesized the debates surrounding the two most authoritative discourses of his era – those of law and history – into a new aesthetic product, the modern novel. Byrne uncovers the empirical underpinnings of Don Quixote through a close philological study of Cervantes’ sly questioning of and commentary on these fields. As she skilfully demonstrates, while sixteenth-century historiographers and jurists across southern Europe sought the philosophical nexus of their fields, Cervantes created one through the adventures of a protagonist whose history is all about justice. As such, Law and History in Cervantes’ Don Quixote illustrates how Cervantes’ art highlighted the inconsistencies of juridical-historical texts and practice, as well as anticipated the ultimate resolution of their paradoxes.

Bound to Shadows by Keri Arthur Book Resume:

BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from Keri Arthur's Mercy Burns and Moon Sworn. In the darkness, demons come out to play . . . and someone must bring their sins to light. Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence. For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .

Judging International Human Rights by Stefan Kadelbach,Thilo Rensmann,Eva Rieter Book Resume:

This book attempts to establish how courts of general jurisdiction differ from specialized human rights courts in their approach to the implementation and development of international human rights. Why do courts of general jurisdiction face particular problems in relation to the application of international human rights law and why, in other cases, are they better placed than specialized human rights courts to act as guardians of international human rights? At the international level, this volume focusses on the International Court of Justice and courts of regional economic integration organizations in Europe, Latin America and Africa. With regard to the judicial implementation of international human rights and human rights decisions at the domestic level, the contributions analyze the requirements set by human rights treaties and offer a series of country studies on the practice of domestic courts in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. This book follows up on research undertaken by the International Human Rights Law Committee of the International Law Association. It includes the final Committee report as well as contributions by committee members and external experts.

Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari Book Resume:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Destined to become a modern classic in the vein of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Sapiens is a lively, groundbreaking history of humankind told from a unique perspective. 100,000 years ago, at least six species of human inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo Sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical -- and sometimes devastating -- breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come? Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power...and our future.

City of Clowns by Daniel Alarcón Book Resume:

A gorgeously rendered graphic novel of Daniel Alarcón’s story City of Clowns. From the author of The King Is Always Above the People, which was longlisted for the 2017 National Book Award for Fiction. Oscar “Chino” Uribe is a young Peruvian journalist for a local tabloid paper. After the recent death of his philandering father, he must confront the idea of his father’s other family, and how much of his own identity has been shaped by his father’s murky morals. At the same time, he begins to chronicle the life of street clowns, sad characters who populate the violent and corrupt city streets of Lima, and is drawn into their haunting, fantastical world. This remarkably affecting story by Daniel Alarcón was included in his acclaimed first book, War by Candlelight, and now, in collaboration with artist Sheila Alvarado, it takes on a new, thrilling form. This graphic novel, with its short punches of action and images, its stark contrasts between light and dark, truth and fiction, perfectly corresponds to the tone of Chino’s story. With the city of Lima as a character, and the bold visual language from the story, City of Clowns is moving, menacing, and brilliantly vivid.

No mere legends or clichés ("Herculean task," "Pandora's box," "Achilles heel," etc.), these classic stories offer profound and manifold lessons, providing the first sustained attempt to answer fundamental human questions concerning "the good life," the burden of mortality, and how to find one's place in the world. Vividly retelling the great tales of mythology and illuminating fresh new ways of understanding them, The Wisdom of the Myths will enlighten readers of all ages.

Cast in Shadow by Michelle Sagara Book Resume:

Book 1 in the Chronicles of Elantra fantasy series by New York Times bestselling author Michelle Sagara Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered—and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin.… Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth. But children are once again dying, and a dark and familiar pattern is emerging. Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can't trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers—powers that no other human has. Her task is simple—find the killer, stop the murders…and survive the attentions of those who claim to be her allies! Originally published in 2005
