Conoce, a través de un relato sencillo y condensado, la historia de una de las corrientes artísticas más importantes de la humanidad. Una visión amena del Renacimiento, sustentada por los comentarios de un prestigioso especialista en el tema. El Renacimiento goza de un lugar especial en nuestro imaginario, y sus grandes héroes siguen siendo los nuestros: desde Miguel Ángel y Leonardo da Vinci hasta Dante y Chaucer. Este periodo, y la inmensa evolución en el pensamiento europeo que lo definió, hizo que Occidente transitara del Medievo a la Modernidad, y produjo una efusión insólita de creación artística. Pero, ¿qué es el Renacimiento? Paul Johnson lo responde en esta obra maestra. Nos explica los avances económicos, tecnológicos y sociales que conformaron el telón de fondo de los logros de la época. También estudia la vida y obra de sus figuras más importantes. Con una fuerza narrativa inusitada, El Renacimiento es también una meditación universal acerca de las fuentes de innovación.

Edición especial de La historia de los judíos de Paul Johnson. Una historia de cuatro mil años -de Abraham a la consolidación del Estado de Israel- en la que se ha forjado una cultura que ha ejercido una influencia innegable en la formación del mundo moderno. «Ningún pueblo ha insistido más firmemente en que la humanidad tiene un destino y la historia un propósito.» Desde el descubrimiento del monoteísmo por los israelitas hasta sus aportaciones en la creación y el desarrollo del capitalismo, el socialismo y el psicoanálisis, el genio judío se percibe en todas las manifestaciones artísticas, científicas y del pensamiento. El historiador Paul Johnson señala algunas de las contradicciones inherentes al hecho de ser judío -como, por ejemplo, la racionalidad frente al misticismo- y observa un peculiar nacionalismo, expresado ya en el Libro de los Macabeos, que desembocó en el sionismo.

Un gran relato que nos descubre la apasionante historia de las civilizaciones que nos precedieron. De Europa a Oriente Medio hasta las costas de China, la autora de este ambicioso volumen nos ofrece una mirada única a las vidas de los pueblos que han protagonizado la aventura de la humanidad. Así, más que un libro de historia, el lector tiene en sus manos una exquisita narración de los albores del ser humano. Acompañado de varios mapas que proporcionan al lector un claro sentido de la localización de los acontecimientos, así como de tablas cronológicas que permiten adquirir una visión global del paso de los años y la interconexión entre culturas, esta obra bebe de la literatura, de las tradiciones épicas, de las cartas, testimonios y relatos orales para contar la vida de los poderosos pero también de los gobernados; de batallas, tratados y familias; en suma, de los grandes enclaves y las vidas humildes. El resultado es un fascinante tapiz que refleja quiénes fuimos, y quizá también quiénes seremos.

Aprendiendo de las Vegas surgio a partir de una saludable controversia que tuvo lugar en 1972, en la que se llego a la conclusion de que los arquitectos deberian ser mas receptivos a los gustos y valores del pueblo comun, y menos impudicos en sus erecciones como "heroe" de los monumentos elevados para si mismos. La presente edicion incluye la totalidad de los textos originales de la Primera Parte ("Un significado para los Aparcamientos A & P, o Aprendiendo de Las Vegas" que trata sobre el Strip de Las Vegas), y la Segunda Parte ("La arquitectura de lo feo y lo ordinario, o El tinglado decorado" que generaliza los hallazgos de la primera sobre simbolismo en la arquitectura y la iconografia de la extension urbana) e incluye todo un repertorio de imagenes alergico-sugestivas, visualmente criticas y sorprendentes. No se trata de un libro sobre Las Vegas, sino de un libro sobre simbologia de la forma arquitectonica tomando como base dicha ciudad.

A beautiful revised edition, with foreword by Paul Clarke, and 10 new recipes. "A shrub is exactly what the people who invented the phrase 'slake your thirst' had in mind. A shrub is full of character and variety. The ingredients—fruit, sugar, and vinegar—are as simple as can be. But the variations are seemingly unlimited. It has another superpower: A strong shrub game can help you make the most of bruised or aging summer fruit." –The New York Times, in an article featuring Shrubs Michael Dietsch took the mixology community by storm when he brought back a popular drink from colonial times, the shrub. Not the green, leafy kind that grow in the ground, but a vintage drink mixer that can be spiked with alcohol or prepared as a soda. Drinkers, bartenders, and the media embraced the book. This new edition features a foreword by Paul Clarke, the Executive Editor of Imbibe magazine and author of The Cocktail Chronicles. Here is the definitive guide to making and using shrubs.

Church historians have long known and appreciated Christianity's global history. Until recently, however, introductory textbooks on the history of Christianity focused almost exclusively on Europe and North America. Robert Bruce Mullins's A Short World History of Christianity, by contrast, offers a panoramic picture of the history of Christianity in its Western and non-Western expressions. It tells the story of the early church in the Greek East as well as the Latin West; of Christianity's spread into Asia as well as Europe during the Middle Ages; and its explosion around the world during the modern period. Mullins's highly readable narrative explores why global perspectives have emerged so strongly in our understanding of the story of Christianity and how they have impacted Christianity's perspective on its place in the world. This newly revised edition adds information on such global phenomena as early Syriac-speaking Christianity; the growth of Pentecostalism around the world, especially in the southern hemisphere; and recent trends in Christianity, including the elevation of the first pope born in the Americas. A time line of key dates, call-out boxes, and other helpful study materials are also provided. Beginning students will appreciate this memorable introduction to the most important events in the history and development of Christianity.

Many people search for spiritual meaning, hope, comfort, and inner peace in their personal lives. The most common path to spirituality around the world is through religion. Although the variety of religions may seem endless, many similarities exist among the major religions of the world, including the belief in one or more gods and the honoring of rituals, stories, ceremonies, codes of conduct, and doctrines, or sets of teachings. In this well-balanced report, respected authors Margaret O. Hyde and Emily G. Hyde take an honest look at religion in the lives of young people. This book explores the many different religions around the world, from the ten most common religions—Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Baha'ism, Confucianism, Jainism, and Shintoism—to modern expressions of spirituality and more. It also offers fascinating information on a field of research known as neurotheology, the study of the neurobiology of the brain and religion. Scientists are learning more about where in the brain religious thoughts take place and what it means to be human.
