The Life and Times of Pancho Villa
38,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Based on decades of research in the archives of seven countries, this definitive study of Villa aims to separate myth from history. So much attention has focused on Villa himself that the characteristics of his movement, which is unique in Latin American history and in some ways unique among twentieth-century revolutions, have been forgotten or neglected. Villa´s Division del Norte was probably the largest revolutionary army that Latin America ever produced. Moreover, this was one of the few revolutionary movements with which a U.S. administration attempted, not only to come to terms, but even to forge an alliance. The first part of the book deals with Villa´s early life as an outlaw and his emergence as a secondary leader of the Mexican Revolution, and also discusses the special conditions that transformed the state of Chihuahua into a leading center of revolution. In the second part, beginning in 1913, Villa emerges as a national leader. The author analyzes the nature of his revolutionary movement and the impact of Villismo as an ideology and as a social movement. The third part of the book deals with the years 1915 to 1920: Villa´s guerrilla warfare, his attack on Columbus, New Mexico, and his subsequent decline. The last part describes Villa´s surrender, his brief life as a hacendado, his assassination and its aftermath, and the evolution of the Villa legend. The book concludes with an assessment of Villa´s personality and the character and impact of his movement. A ´´Best Book of 1998´´ ´´Library Journal selection ´´This is the definitive work on Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. . . . The work is exhaustively researched and scrupulously documented; it also makes for engrossing reading, as Latin America specialist Katz takes hold of the legend, gives it a good shaking, and comes up with something far more complex.´´--´´Library Journal starred review ´´A splendid work that can be enjoyed by the general reader and by scholars of the period on both sides of the border.´´ --´´The Journal of American History

Make It New: The History of Silicon Valley Desi...
9,95 € *

California´s Silicon Valley is home to the greatest concentration of designers in the world: corporate design offices at flagship technology companies and volunteers at nonprofit NGOs; global design consultancies and boutique studios; research laboratories and academic design programs. Together they form the interconnected network that is Silicon Valley. Apple products are famously ´´designed in California´´, but, as Barry Katz shows in this first-ever, extensively illustrated history, the role of design in Silicon Valley began decades before Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak dreamed up Apple in a garage. Offering a thoroughly original view of the subject, Katz tells how design helped transform Silicon Valley into the most powerful engine of innovation in the world. From Hewlett-Packard and Ampex in the 1950s to Google and Facebook today, design has provided the bridge between research and development, art and engineering, technical performance and human behavior. Katz traces the origins of all of the leading consultancies - including IDEO, frog, and Lunar - and shows the process by which some of the world´s most influential companies came to place design at the center of their business strategies. At the same time, universities, foundations, and even governments have learned to apply ´´design thinking´´ to their missions. Drawing on unprecedented access to a vast array of primary sources and interviews with nearly every influential design leader - including Douglas Engelbart, Steve Jobs, and Don Norman - Katz reveals design to be the missing link in Silicon Valley´s ecosystem of innovation. 1.

Last week I cut my hair, bought some boys´ clothes and shoes, wrapped a large ACE bandage around my chest to flatten my fortunately-not-large breasts, and began looking for a new name. Angela Katz-McNair has never felt quite right as a girl. Her whole life is leading up to the day she decides to become Grady, a guy. While coming out as transgendered feels right to Grady, he isn´t prepared for the reaction he gets from everyone else. His mother is upset, his younger sister is mortified, and his best friend, Eve, won´t acknowledge him in public. Why can´t people just let Grady be himself? Grady´s life is miserable until he finds friends in some unexpected places -- like the school geek, Sebastian, who explains that there is precedent in the natural world (parrotfish change gender when they need to, and the newly male fish are the alpha males), and Kita, a senior who might just be Grady´s first love. From acclaimed writer Ellen Wittlinger, this is the groundbreaking story of one teen´s search for self and his struggle for acceptance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sunil Malhotra.
