?El libro, además de seguir las andanzas del hijo de Napoleón III y la española Eugenia de Montijo, detalla el esplendor de la Francia imperial, la Inglaterra victoriana, la epopeya del pueblo zulú y culmina con el mayor desastre sufrido por tropas británicas ante fuerzas indígenas: la batalla de Isandlwana.? (Diario El Mundo) ?Pasamos de un escenario a otro como quien lee un trepidante best seller. No da tregua al lector metiéndonos con un lenguaje cercano a cada acto de la vida de nuestro protagonista. Es una historia a la vez mítica y trágica que nos enseña no solo una parte de la historia de Francia y su familia imperial sino también como estaba la situación del mundo europeo y el gran reino de los bravos zulúes.? (Blog Historia con minúsculas) La increíble historia del legítimo heredero al imperio de Francia y aspirante a rey consorte de Inglaterra, que murió en una emboscada atravesado por media docena de lanzas. La historia de Napoleón Luis Eugenio Bonaparte, el hijo de Napoleón III, creador del Segundo Imperio francés, y la española Eugenia de Montijo, es una historia trágica que conmocionó a Europa. El último Napoleón nos introduce de lleno en esta historia en la que se mezclan escenarios tan sugerentes como la Francia imperial, la Inglaterra victoriana o el reino zulú en el África austral y nos traslada de un modo novelesco, como corresponde a esta genuina novela de aventuras, el periplo vital, breve pero intenso, del que hubiera sido Napoleón IV. Un hombre que luchó por merecer el trono de Francia y acabó muerto en África, sin haber contraído matrimonio y sin descendencia. Carlos Roca utiliza para relatar esta historia en la que se mezcla amor, traición, aventuras y batallas antológicas, un estilo que camina en perfecto equilibrio en la frontera entre el ensayo histórico y la novela de aventuras. La dinastía napoleónica, que instauró Napoleón Bonaparte, mezcla enormes fracasos con inigualables victorias, este es el sino que hereda Napoleón III que se ve obligado a exiliarse a Inglaterra, después de haber logrado el Segundo Imperio, por su desastrosa derrota en la guerra contra Prusia, en Francia se instaura la Tercera República y el joven Luis Eugenio crece con las ansias de grandeza de su padre y se resiste a considerar que el trono de Francia está perdido. Decidirá hacerse un nombre y para ello, con el permiso de la reina Victoria, se enrolará en el ejército inglés y marchará a la guerra contra los zulús. El joven Luis Eugenio encontrará la muerta en una emboscada en 1879 y su muerte conmocionó a Francia, que perdía al último representante de la saga napoleónica, a Inglaterra, porque aspiraba a convertirse en rey consorte y, por supuesto, a su madre que nunca se recuperó del golpe e incluso viajó al lugar en el que su hijo había perdido la vida. Razones para comprar la obra: - El libro recoge una historia de pasión, de amor y de valor y la presenta de un modo a caballo entre el ensayo y la novela, lo que facilita la lectura y la asimilación de los datos. - La disposición de los hechos y la estructura de la historia son rigurosamente cronológicas por lo que seguir los acontecimientos es más sencillo. - La obra desvela los motivos que llevaron al hijo de Napoleón III a enrolarse en el ejército de su enemigo histórico, Inglaterra. - Además de Luis Eugenio y la dinastía napoleónica el libro nos narra el declive de la dinastía zulú, dos sagas gloriosas cuyos destinos chocarán trágicamente. Con la muerte de Luis Eugenio, que cede sus derechos dinásticos a su primo segundo Napoleón Víctor, se acaban las aspiraciones napoleónicas al trono de Francia, se frustra su enlace con Beatriz, aspirante al trono inglés y Eugenia de Montijo recibirá un golpe del que sólo se recuperará cuarenta años después cuando se reúna con él, en la cripta de la abadía de Saint Michael.

'Outstanding. An extraordinary recreation of ancient Rome. Miss this at your peril' Ben Kane More gripping than Game of Thrones and more ruthless than House of Cards - this a stunning new thriller of power, treachery and revenge In a darkened cell, a brutally deposed dictator lies crippled - deprived of his power, his freedom - and his eyes. On the edge of utter despair, his only companion is the young boy who brings him his meagre rations, a mere child who fears his own shadow. But to one who has held and lost the highest power, one thing alone is crystal clear: even emperors were mere children once. Ten years later, the new ruler's son watches uneasily over his father's empire. Wherever he looks rebellion is festering, and those closest to him have turned traitor once before. To this city in crisis comes a hugely wealthy senator from the very edge of the empire, a young and angry ward at his heels. He is witty but inscrutable, generous with his time and money to a leader in desperate need of a friend - and he wears a bandage over his blinded eyes. The fallen emperor's name is Nero. But this isn't his story. 'This marvellous debut moves backwards and forwards in time to tell the story of Nero's possible and astonishing tale' Sunday Express 'Barbaree has delivered an extraordinary first novel, impressing with its complex plotting, powerful imagination, strong and authentic characters, and the author's gift for making fiction seem so palpably real. Politics, scheming, corruption, barbarity and betrayal... the best bits of Roman history but with an original new twist!' Lancashire Evening Post 'A blinder! 5 stars' Weekend Sport

The year is 92 B.C. Gordianus has just turned eighteen and is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime: a far-flung journey to see the Seven Wonders of the World. Gordianus is not yet called "the Finder"--but at each of the Seven Wonders, the wide-eyed young Roman encounters a mystery to challenge the powers of deduction. Accompanying Gordianus on his travels is his tutor, Antipater of Sidon, the world's most celebrated poet. But there is more to the apparently harmless old poet than meets the eye. Before they leave home, Antipater fakes his own death and travels under an assumed identity. Looming in the background are the first rumblings of a political upheaval that will shake the entire Roman world. Teacher and pupil journey to the fabled cities of Greece and Asia Minor, and then to Babylon and Egypt. They attend the Olympic Games, take part in exotic festivals, and marvel at the most spectacular constructions ever devised by mankind. Along the way they encounter murder, witchcraft and ghostly hauntings. Traveling the world for the first time, Gordianus discovers that amorous exploration goes hand-in-hand with crime-solving. The mysteries of love are the true wonders of the world, and at the end of the journey, an Eighth Wonder awaits him in Alexandria. Her name is Bethesda. The Seven Wonders is a Novel of Ancient Rome by Steven Saylor.

Throughout his career, Eduardo Galeano has turned our understanding of history and reality on its head. Isabelle Allende said his works “invade the reader’s mind, to persuade him or her to surrender to the charm of his writing and power of his idealism.” Mirrors, Galeano’s most ambitious project since Memory of Fire, is an unofficial history of the world seen through history’s unseen, unheard, and forgotten. As Galeano notes: “Official history has it that Vasco Núñez de Balboa was the first man to see, from a summit in Panama, the two oceans at once. Were the people who lived there blind??” Recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods, and visionaries, from the Garden of Eden to twenty-first-century New York, of the black slaves who built the White House and the women erased by men’s fears, and told in hundreds of kaleidoscopic vignettes, Mirrors is a magic mosaic of our humanity.

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID
