The eldest son of the Duke of Strathmore, David Radley has been raised alongside his father's legitimate children.

An Unsuitable Match... David's been in love with Clarice for years, and it isn't long before the attraction between them develops into something deeper. Yet he senses Clarice is hiding something and until she reveals her secret, she won't be free to follow her heart.

Escrita hace veinticinco años, El placer del amor es un compendio de humor y sabiduría, una novela provocadora que no ha perdido un ápice de su actualidad. Un día gris cualquiera, un hombre cualquiera y un vuelo de lo más aburrido entre París y Londres... y de repente, ese hombre levanta la vista y ve a Chloe, su vecina de asiento, una joven de ojos verde agua, hombros quebradizos y uñas mal cuidadas. Cuando el avión aterriza, él ya sabe que esa es la mujer de su vida. Es más: su amor es único y va a ser eterno. A la semana siguiente, los dos cenan juntos por primera vez, y poco después dormirán juntos. Empieza la aclimatación a ese país extranjero que es el cuerpo del ser amado, pero aún no sabemos si este momento mágico tiene mimbres para convertirse en un proyecto de futuro, cabalgando los fastidios de un desayuno donde falta la mermelada que más nos gusta o una cena con los padres de ella. Habrá que esperar... Mientras esperamos y leemos, Alain de Botton pone en tela de juicio ese misterio llamado amor, y en la tarea le ayudan los consejos de grandes intelectuales, empezando por Marx y siguiendo con Voltaire, Oscar Wilde y Camus.

Women and the Vote

Before 1893 no woman anywhere in the world had the vote in a national election. A hundred years later almost all countries had enfranchised women, and it was a sign of backwardness not to have done so. This is the story of how this momentous change came about. The first genuinely global history of women and the vote, it takes the story of women in politics from the earliest times to the present day, revealing startling new connections across time and national boundaries - from Europe and North America to Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Muslim world post-9/11. A story of individuals as well as of wider movements, it includes the often dramatic life-stories of women's suffrage pioneers from across the world, painting vivid biographical portraits of everyone from Susan B. Anthony and the Pankhursts to hitherto lesser-known activists in China, Latin America, and Africa. It is also the first major post-feminist history of women's struggle for the vote. Controversially, Jad Adams rejects the widely accepted idea that success was primarily a result of the pressure group politics of the suffragists and their supporters. Ultimately, he argues, it was nationalism, not feminism, that was the most important factor in winning women the vote.

Masculinity and Male Codes of Honor in Modern France

In this study of upper-class masculinity from the end of the ancien régime in 1789 to the end of World War I, Robert Nye argues that manhood, masculinity, and male sexuality is, like femininity, a cultural construct, comprising a strict set of heroic ideals and codes of honor which few men have been able to realize in practice. In doing so, Nye destabilizes and historicizes the male body, and incorporates gender into the brand of cultural history inaugurated by Norbert Elias in the 1930s.
