Este libro ofrece una visión general de varios recursos globales (como petróleo, agua, personas, minerales, etc.) y su posición en la economía global. Muy interesante lectura.
Colección sólida de cuentos; particularmente vale la pena leer para mí, ya que vergonzosamente no sé nada de cómo se ve o se siente ser estadounidense en el ejército, o en la familia inmediata de alguien en el ejército, en el año 2011.
My favorite novel of the year 2010 by one of my all-time favorite authors. Another brilliant historical novel about a young mans coming of age during the Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo artistic households, the political Trotskey (the exiled leader from Russia taken in by Mexico) world and the United States' deep south, small town fears that can become dangerous when not balanced by a love for humanity in all of its variances. This book really opened my eyes to Mexico's more liberal attitude towards politics vs. the viewpoints that I grew up with in the United States, as well as the artistic accomplishments of Frida Kahlo. I was fortunate enough to view some of Rivera's serene and solid work at the Phoenix Art Meusuem last year, but what I really went to see was Frida Kahlo's picture she was commissioned to do for a mother of a young women who committed suicide by jumping off of a building. The picture was supposed to be of the young women before the suicide...but Frida took it literally and showed the women plunging from the top of the Hampshire House and her tumble down as if in slow motion...a narrative painting. Understandably, the mother never rec'd this account of the suicide. This book has been so powerful for me on so many levels....I cried, I grew, I laughed, I changed, I got angry, I grew more, protective walls and boundaries fell down, I hurt and became vulnerable, I felt ashamed, became small and slanty-eyed, hated some and loved others, felt grateful, I changed.
Mozart's Treatise is an important text for anyone interested in historical performance practice.
I have not laughed so much while reading a book since the hilarious Straight Man. I laughed myself silly reading this book. The kind of laughing where it's so hard you're frantically wiping the tears away because you don't want to have to stop reading long enough to clear your sight. I passed it on to my brother-in-law who usually poops out a few pages into a work of fiction, and he not only finished it but loved it.
