Tristeza de la verdad: André Gide regresa de Rusia

by Alberto Ruy Sánchez

El viaje de Gide es un recorrido por la accidentada geografía de la intolerancia: más allá de Rusia, por las patrias presentes y futuras de la utopía total. "Con este libro Ruy Sánchez se ha revelado como uno de nuestros mejores ensayistas. Su escritura es nerviosa y ágil, su inteligencia aguda sin ser cruel, su ánimo compasivo sin condescencia ni complicidad [...] "Tiene la riqueza de detalles de una crónica histórica y la penetración psicológica de una novela. [...] En una prosa nítida y rápida Alberto Ruy Sánchez nos relata una historia compleja en la que la psicología individual se mezcla a la política colectiva, la literatura a la pasión por la justicia, la introspección del solitario a la sed de fraternidad, la duda a la creencia [...] "Un libro escrito con letras claras sobre una superficie obscura. Entristece, pero también ilumina". Octavio Paz

Dark Horse: The Surprise Election and Political Murder of President James A. Garfield

by Kenneth D. Ackerman

In post-Civil War America, politics was a brutal sport played with blunt rules. Yet the era produced wide public excitement and high voter participation, as well as our last log cabin-born president. James Garfield's 1880 dark horse campaign after the longest-ever Republican nominating process (thirty-six convention ballots), his victory in the closest-ever popular vote for president (by a margin of only 7,018 votes out of more than nine million cast), his struggle against bitterly feuding factions once elected, and the public's response to its violent climax produce the most dramatic presidential odyssey of the Gilded Age--and among the most momentous in our nation's history. Capitol Hill veteran Kenneth D. Ackerman re-creates an American political landscape where fierce battles for power unfolded against a chivalrous code of honor in a country struggling to emerge from the long shadow of recent war. He casts familiar Civil War figures like Ulysses S. Grant and Winfield Scott Hancock in unfamiliar roles as politicos alongside feuding machine bosses like senators Roscoe Conkling and James G. Blaine and backroom string-puller Chester A. Arthur, Garfield's unlikely vice-presidential running mate. The journey through political backrooms, dazzling convention floors, and intrigue-filled congressional and White House chambers, reveals the era's decency and humanity as well as the sharp partisanship that exploded in the pistol shots of assassin Charles Guiteau, the weak-minded political camp follower and patronage seeker eager to replace the elected commander-in-chief with one of his own choosing. Garfield's path from a seat in the House of Representatives to White House to martyred hero changed the tone of politics for generations to come. His assassination prompted leaders to recoil at their excesses and brought shocked Americans together with a dignity and grace that have long held the nation together in crisis. Kenneth D. Ackerman tells this overlooked story in a historical page-turner that will enthrall aficionados of presidential lives and all lovers of American history. Kenneth D. Ackerman has served for more than twenty-five years in senior posts on Capitol Hill and in the Executive Branch, including as counsel to two U.S. Senate committees and as administrator of the Department of Agriculture's Risk Management Agency during the Clinton-Gore administration. He is the author of "The Gold Ring: Jim Fisk, Jay Gould, and Black Friday 1869" and currently practices law in Washington, D.C.

Recording Village Life: A Coptic Scribe in Early Islamic Egypt

by Jennifer Cromwell

Recording Village Life presents a close study of over 140 Coptic texts written between 724–756 CE by a single scribe, Aristophanes son of Johannes, of the village Djeme in western Thebes. These texts, which focus primarily on taxation and property concerns, yield a wealth of knowledge about social and economic changes happening at both the community and country-wide levels during the early years of Islamic rule in Egypt. Additionally, they offer a fascinating picture of the scribe’s role within this world, illuminating both the practical aspects of his work and the social and professional connections with clients for whom he wrote legal documents. Papyrological analysis of Aristophanes’ documents, within the context of the textual record of the village, shows a new and divergent scribal practice that reflects broader trends among his contemporaries: Aristophanes was part of a larger, national system of administrative changes, enacted by the country’s Arab rulers in order to better control administrative practices and fiscal policies within the country. Yet Aristophanes’ dossier shows him not just as an administrator, revealing details about his life, his role in the community, and the elite networks within which he operated. This unique perspective provides new insights into both the micro-history of an individual’s experience of eighth-century Theban village life, and its reflection in the macro social, economic, and political trends in Egypt at this time. This book will prove valuable to scholars of late antique studies, papyrology, philology, early Islamic history, social and economic history, and Egyptology.
