Venecia, ciudad de fortuna book cover
Venecia, ciudad de fortuna
Auge y caída del imperio naval veneciano
Roger Crowley - 2011-01-01
Calificación de Goodreads
Entre los siglos X y XVI, Venecia pasó de ser un poblado de modestos comerciantes hecho de casas de madera a convertirse en una majestuosa ciudad cuya riqueza y esplendor asombraría al mundo. Los venecianos no solo forjaron un legendario imperio naval, sino que impusieron una nueva forma de ver el mundo que perdura hasta nuestros días. Crowley dibuja una vívida imagen de un pueblo intrépido y avaricioso que creció primero en pugna con el Imperio bizantino y luego en conflicto con el Imperio otomano, combinando la astucia comercial y diplomática con las grandes batallas navales para defender sus intereses. Desde la apertura de la Ruta de las especias hasta las cruzadas y el enfrentamiento entre el cristianismo y el islam, pasando por la invención del capitalismo moderno, Venecia y su imperio naval desempeñaron un papel fundamental en los conflictos clave de su tiempo, cuyas reverberaciones todavía son palpables en la actualidad.

From Jesus to Christianity book cover
From Jesus to Christianity
How Four Generations of Visionaries & Storytellers Created the New Testament and Christian Faith
L. Michael White - 2005-10-25 (publicado por primera vez en 2004)
Calificación de Goodreads
Discover the astonishing story of how Christianity grew from the personal vision of a humble Jewish peasant living in a remote province of the Roman Empire into the largest organized religion in the world. L. Michael White, one of the world's foremost scholars on the origins of Christianity, provides a historical approach to uncover what we can know of Jesus and his early followers through layers of archaeological excavations, buried fragments of largely unknown texts, and historical sources. From Jesus to Christianity explores how early debates spurred the evolution of Christianity as we know it, diving into arguments over how to understand Jesus as both human and divine, the role of women in the church, the diversity of beliefs among Christian communities, Gnostic influences, and political disputes over which books would be included in the New Testament. With illustrations, photos, charts, and maps, this book presents the fullest picture yet of the beginnings of the most popular religion on earth.

Gödel, Escher, Bach book cover
Gödel, Escher, Bach
Un eterno y grácil bucle
Douglas R. Hofstadter - 1999-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1979)
Calificación de Goodreads
¿Puede un sistema comprenderse a sí mismo? Si esta pregunta se refiere a la mente humana, entonces nos encontramos ante una cuestión clave del pensamiento científico. Y de la filosofía. Y del arte. Investigar este misterio es una aventura que recorre la matemática, la física, la biología, la psicología y muy especialmente, el lenguaje. Douglas R. Hofstadter, joven y ya célebre científico, nos abre la puerta del enigma con la belleza y la alegría creadora de su estilo. Sorprendentes paralelismos ocultos entre los grabados de Escher y la música de Bach nos remiten a las paradojas clásicas de los antiguos griegos y a un teorema de la lógica matemática moderna que ha estremecido el pensamiento del siglo XX: el de Kurt Gödel. Todo lenguaje, todo sistema formal, todo programa de ordenador, todo proceso de pensamiento, llegan, tarde o temprano, a la situación límite de la autorreferencia: de querer expresarse sobre sí mismos. Surge entonces la emoción del infinito, como dos espejos enfrentados y obligados a reflejarse mutua e indefinidamente. Gödel, Escher, Bach es una obra de arte escrita por un sabio. Versa sobre los misterios del pensamiento e incluye, ella misma, sus propios misterios.

Smuggler Nation book cover
Smuggler Nation
How Illicit Trade Made America
Peter Andreas - 2013-02-14
Calificación de Goodreads
Follow the history of America's contraband capitalism through illicit imports such as West Indies molasses, African slaves, French condoms, and more. In Smuggler Nation, Peter Andreas provides a fascinating and often-overlooked account of America's continuous engagement in smuggling from colonial times to the present. Despite being born and growing up through smuggling, the United States is now the world's leading anti-smuggling crusader. Andreas challenges the hyperbolic depictions of out-of-control borders and global crime threats, reminding readers that illicit trade is not a new concept but an old American tradition that has helped fuel the country's rise to become a world superpower.

It Was All a Lie
How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump
Stuart Stevens - 2020-08-04
Calificación de Goodreads
A political insider reveals the truth about how the Republican Party lost its way. With decades of experience under his belt, the author exposes the hypocrisy, racism, and dishonesty at the heart of the modern GOP. This book is a candid and unflinching account of what he's seen firsthand, and he's not asking for pity or forgiveness. Instead, he wants to see the party he helped to create burned to the ground.
Chris Hayes
What I liked about @stuartpstevens book was that it was about so much more than Trump's personal awfulness and was the first attempt I've seen at a GOP/conservative "God That Failed" genre. Would really like to see more.      fuente
