Описание: Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2020 A Spectator Book of the Year A literary rendering of the Top Boy generation... I cannot conjure another work which captures this culture in such depth - or with such brutal honesty - as only lived experience can tell Graeme Armstrong, author of The Young Team An astonishingly powerful book Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love This life is like being in an ocean. Some people keep swimming towards the bottom.

Some people touch the bottom with one foot, or even both, and then push themselves off it to get back up to the top, where you can breathe. Others get to the bottom and decide they want to stay there. I dont want to get to the bottom because Im already drowning.

This is a story of a London you wont find in any guidebooks. This is a story about what its like to exist in the moment, about boys too eager to become men, growing up in the hidden war zones of big cities - and the girls trying to make it their own way. This is a story of reputations made and lost, of violence and vengeance - and never counting the cost.

This is a story of concrete towers and blank eyed windows, of endless nights in police stations and prison cells, of brotherhood and betrayal. This is about the boredom, the rush, the despair, the fear and the hope. This is about whats left behind.

Описание: Desde Jose Marti hasta Octavio Paz, Eva Peron hasta Gabriel Garcia Marquez, los paises latinoamericanos han producido algunos de los escritores, revolucionarios, pensadores y lideres mas influyentes del mundo, cuyas vidas han contribuido colectivamente a las ideas centrales que dominan la politica, filosofia y literatura de la region. Esas ideas son las protagonistas de este libro, pero no las ideas en abstracto, sino las ideas encarnadas en personas con vidas tocadas por la pasion del poder, la historia y la revolucion, asi como el amor, la amistad y la familia. Vidas reales, no ideas andantes.
A la manera de Plutarco y sus "Vidas paralelas," el autor dibuja los perfiles de Peron y Che Guevara, pone en contrapunto las actitudes politicas y morales de los novelistas Garcia Marquez y Mario Vargas Llosa, y explica la conexion historica entre el teologo Samuel Ruiz y el guerrillero Subcomandante Marcos. Por este libro tambien desfilan profetas de la redencion como el heroico Marti, el idealista Jose Enrique Rodo y, como figura central, el poeta y ensayista Paz, cuya vida abarca el siglo entero y cuyas raices familiares recogen toda la tradicion revolucionaria moderna. Finalmente conecta a Hugo Chavez con la tradicion caudillista y el culto al heroe.
A traves de estas doce biografias sutilmente entrelazadas, Enrique Krauze esclarece el dilema central de America Latina: la tension entre el ideal de la democracia y la tentacion, siempre presente, del mesianismo politico.

Longlisted for the Booker Prize
Named a Most Anticipated Book of Summer 2021 by Entertainment Weekly, Time, and CrimeReads

An astonishing, visceral autobiographical novel about a young man straddling two cultures: the university where he is studying English Literature and the disregarded world of London gang warfare.

The unforgettable narrator of this compelling, thought-provoking debut goes by two names in his two worlds. At the university he attends, he's Gabriel, a seemingly ordinary, partying student learning about morality at a distance. But in his life outside the classroom, he's Snoopz, a hard living member of London's gangs, well-acquainted with drugs, guns, stabbings, and robbery. Navigating these sides of himself, dealing with loving parents at the same time as treacherous, endangering friends and the looming threat of prison, he is forced to come to terms with who he really is and the life he's chosen for himself.

In a distinct, lyrical urban slang all his own, author Gabriel Krauze brings to vivid life the underworld of his city and the destructive impact of toxic masculinity. Who They Was is a disturbing yet tender and perspective-altering account of the thrill of violence and the trauma it leaves behind. It is the story of inner cities everywhere, and of the lost boys who must find themselves in their tower blocks.

Описание:

Latin America has been of vital importance to the United States almost since the birth of our nation, and the significance of this relationship has only increased in recent decades. But mutual understanding between these regions is lacking, even as Latin Americans are striving to promote the values of democracy in their native countries and beyond. Why has this process proved to be such a struggle, and what does the future of the region hold?

In "Redeemers," acclaimed historian Enrique Krauze presents the major ideas that have formed the modern Latin American political mind during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from early postcolonial authoritarian regimes to nineteenth-century Liberalism and Conservatism, and then the impact of Socialism and Marxism as well as nationalism and indigenism and the movement toward liberal democracy of recent years. Krauze looks closely at how these ideas have been expressed in the lives of influential revolutionaries, thinkers, poets, and novelists--figures whose lives were marked by a passionate involvement in history, power, and, for some, revolution, as well as a personal commitment to love, friendship, and family. Krauze's subjects come from across the continents. Here are the Cuban JosE MartI; the Argentines Che Guevara and Evita PerOn; the groundbreaking political thinkers JosE Vasconcelos of Mexico and JosE Carlos MariAtegui from Peru. Writers JosE Enrique RodO, Mario Vargas Llosa, Octavio Paz, and Gabriel GarcIa MArquez reinforce the importance of imagination to inspire social change.

"Redeemers" also highlights Mexico's Samuel Ruiz and Subcomandante Marcos and Venezuela's president Hugo ChAvez, and their influence on contemporary Latin America.

In this brilliant and deeply researched history, Enrique Krauze uses the range of these extraordinary lives to illuminate the struggle that has defined Latin American history: an ever-precarious balance between the ideal of democracy and the temptation of political messianism. Through this comprehensive collage of the distinct but interconnected experiences and views of these twelve fascinating cultural and political figures, we can better understand how this balance continues to affect Latin America today and how its nations will define themselves and relate to the larger world in the years ahead.
