El objeto de esta monografía es ayudar a ampliar el conocimiento sobre el tardofranquismo, un periodo clave para comprender la historia reciente de España. Para ello recurrimos a una fuente tan útil como infravalorada: la información publicada en los medios de comunicación extranjeros sobre los cambios políticos y sociales operados en nuestro país durante aquellos años. El presente libro analiza la cobertura informativa ofrecida por The New York Times, una de las cabeceras más emblemáticas de la prensa escrita norteamericana y todo un referente a nivel mundial. A través del estudio de sus editoriales, sus artículos de opinión y las crónicas enviadas por los corresponsales desplazados en nuestro país, seremos capaces de reconstruir la imagen que España proyectaba hacia el exterior y, sobre todo, percibir cuál era la opinión del periódico estadounidense acerca del progresivo cambio político que comenzaba su andadura durante los últimos años de la dictadura franquista.
Three stories: three alien encounters. What happens to the first people on Mars? How difficult is it to communicate with aliens? And what about N.W. Smith, returning after decades to the most dangerous place in the System?
Mitch needs some kind of intervention. With his wife’s desertion and subsequent tragic death, life in Mitch Drummond’s home has gotten completely out of hand. Mitch’s job as a detective keeps him away from home at all hours. When his mother-in-law decides she’s had enough of caring for the kids, Mitch is hard pressed to find a nanny—quick. Tassie needs a job until she goes back to school in the fall. An unexpected turn of events brings her into contact with Mitch, and she agrees to be his family’s nanny. But Tassie has no idea what she’s getting into! God can use a willing person to reach even the hardest, most rebellious soul. As Tassie brings light into this dark, dysfunctional family, will love blossom and grow? His eyes are on the ways of men; he sees their every step. Job 34:21
All that stands between the Dominion of Tethis and it's enemies are the Legions. Each is dedicated to combating enemies that surround the Dominion. And inside Tethis' borders itself the Outrider Legion keeps a constant vigil. A combination of watchmen, ranger, and soldier, Outriders patrol the roads and dark places within the Dominion, keeping safe its citizens from threats that elude the other Legions. It falls on one of these Outrider units to undertake a clandestine mission to recover a stolen artifact from a neighboring state. However, not all is as it seems. There are many players in this game, and the Outriders find themselves beset with rivals. They will need all of their wits and skills to survive against renegades, monsters, and sorcerers. Warding off one treacherous attack after another, soldiers from the Outrider Legion doggedly pursue the group of outlaws. As they track down the thieves and their mysterious treasure it becomes apparent that there are other forces involved in the pursuit, others not above using murder and black magic to get what they want. One of them is the Akvan, a centuries-old sorcerer and the terror of the entire continent. His involvement in the affair is unknown, but his appearance can only indicate some grand, diabolical strategy at work. But there is another shadowy figure in play who may be the prime mover, orchestrating treason within the Legion from afar...
The impulse to collect is an almost universal one, satisfying the hunting and acquisitive instincts, the love of beauty, and intellectual curiosity. The wealthy have collected rare and beautiful things from the earliest days of civilization, but the collection, or "cabinet," containing natural curiosities dates from the sixteenth century, and it was this type of collection in which scientific instruments found a home. In the twentieth century, we have come to accept a vast range of technical, often complex, equipment for everyday use. Science has become the very substance of our life style. But the appeal of historic scientific instruments remains, and from them much can be learned of the practice and development of science over four centuries. This book traces the historical origins and development of instruments as they spread across the globe, explaining their manufacture, use, and adaptations. This must-have book for the active collector gives practical advice on dealing with instruments and checking their authenticity. It features a comprehensive international list of major museums and instrument collections. Over 100 superb illustrations show the instruments to their full advantage.
