In "The War of the Fatties," a campy, tongue-in-cheek retelling of an episode from the Mexican "Trojan War," naked fat women from Tlatelolco discombobulate Tenochtitlan's invading army by squirting them with breast milk. Told with satiric allusions to the policies and tactics used by Mexico's current ruling party, PRI, to consolidate its power, the play unfolds a history of vain rivalry and decadence, intricate political maneuvers, corruption, and unchecked ambition that determined the course of Mexican history for two centuries before the Spanish conquest. Novo's other works in this collection—"A Few Aspects of Sex among the Nahuas," "Ahuítzotl and the Magic Water," "Cuauhtémoc: Play in One Act," "Cuauhtémoc and Eulalia: A Dialogue," "Malinche and Carlota: A Dialogue," and "In Ticitézcatl or The Enchanted Mirror: Opera in Two Acts"—represent nearly all of his Aztec-related writings. Taken together, they provide a delightful introduction to Novo's later works and a light-hearted, historically accurate introduction to Aztec culture. The text is supplemented by a glossary of Nahuatl terms, notes on the historical characters, and an introduction that provides historical background and places Novo's works within their cultural context.

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol. Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery. This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie's own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks. This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for. "You have given me my live back." ---Katy F., Albuquerque, New Mexico "This is an inspiring and groundbreaking must-read. I am forever inspired and changed." -Kate S., Los Angeles, California "The most selfless and amazing book that I have ever read." -Bernie M., Dublin, Ireland

Del autor del bestseller La Cabaña, nos llega una de las novelas más inspiradoras de la década. En las costas de una isla entre dos dimensiones, encalla el container de una embarcación donde encuentran varios cadáveres y a una joven a punto de morir. John, que se encarga de sus cuidados, descubre que el código genético de la mujer la conecta con todas las razas conocidas. Nadie se imagina lo que significa realmente su supervivencia. Nadie, excepto Eva, la Madre de los Vivos, que la llama hija y la invita a ser Testigo de la verdad de su historia... de nuestra propia historia. ¿Por qué Dios no me protegió?, preguntó a Eva. Era la misma interrogante expresada por miles de millones de otras voces. La duda que surgía de tumbas y sillas vacías, de mezquitas e iglesias, de celdas de prisiones y callejones. La pregunta cuyas secuelas eran la fe desgarrada y los corazones maltrechos, que demandaban justicia y rogaban pidiendo milagros. Eva es una exploración reveladora sobre la Creación que, aunque fiel a los textos bíblicos, propone un desafío a las creencias tradicionales sobre quiénes somos y de dónde venimos. Del mismo modo que La Cabaña despertó en los lectores la necesidad de una comprensión profunda de Dios, esta nueva novela de Paul Young nos liberará de las interpretaciones erróneas que han corrompido las relaciones humanas desde los tiempos del Jardín del Edén, ayudándonos a vernos unos a otros como seres únicos y sin limitaciones.

Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation. El origen de las especies es un libro de Charles Darwin publicado el 24 de noviembre de 1859, considerado uno de los trabajos precursores de la literatura científica y el fundamento de la teoría de la biología evolutiva. Como Darwin era un científico eminente, sus conclusiones fueron tomadas en serio y las pruebas que presentaba generaron un debate científico, filosófico y religioso. El debate sobre el libro contribuyó a la campaña de Thomas Huxley y sus compañeros del X Club para secularizar la ciencia, promoviendo el naturalismo científico.
