Cuando el 21 de julio de 1588 el gran proyecto naval de Felipe II zarpó de A Coruña para invadir Inglaterra con una flota de 130 navíos y 30.000 hombres, la Armada Invencible inició su singladura hacia la leyenda. Pero, ¿dónde encontró el yunque donde forjó su funesto destino? En la hermosa y feraz costa occidental de Irlanda. Un total de 24 barcos naufragaron y 6.000 hombres perdieron la vida en sus costas.Hoy, cuatro siglos después de esa tragedia marítima y humana, el halo mí-tico de la Invencible sigue perviviendo en la Isla Esmeralda, grabado a fuego en su toponimia: desde las rocas basálticas de la Calzada del Gigante, en el Ulster, hasta la península de Dingle, en el sureño Kerry. Una huella que también late en la memoria de las increíbles aventuras de náufragos como el capitán Francisco de Cuéllar, en el cabello y los ojos oscuros de los black Irish, en el oro español expuesto en los museos de la isla…Descubrir los paisajes, los personajes y las historias que forjaron esa leyenda es el horizonte de este libro, un viaje tintado de aventura, emoción y recuerdo.

"Aschmann was a keen and impassioned observer of the impacts of modern societies on the natural world." -- Karl Butzer, Dickson Centennial Professor of Liberal Arts, University of Kansas, Austin In The Evolving Landscape Martin J. Pasqualetti brings together for the first time the collected writings of one of twentieth-century America's master geographers, Homer Aschmann. Combining encyclopedic knowledge with unquenchable curiosity, Aschmann radiates an obvious affection for being outdoors as he guides us across landscapes to discern the interplay of climate, history, topography, soils, and vegetation. In settings as diverse as Los Angeles, Baja California, Arizona, Paraguay, Chile, Colombia, and the Canary Islands, Aschmann demonstrates the contribution a geographer can make in explaining environmental change. "Aschmann was a master of the geographical art." -- William M. Denevan, Carl O. Sauer Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin, Madison "Serious students of the landscape will be startled by how relevant and contemporary these seminal essays remain." -- Richard Francaviglia, Director, Center for Greater Southwestern Studies and the History of Cartography, University of Texas at Arlington "Aschmann's broad perspectives are a fast disappearing form of Geography which we lose at our science's peril." -- Carl L. Johannessen, Professor of Geography, University of Oregon

As a key element of individual and social well-being and quality of life, landscape plays an important part in human fulfilment and in reinforcement of European identity. Adopted under the auspices of the Council of Europe, the European Landscape Convention aims to promote the protection, management and planning of landscapes, and to organise international co-operation in this field. It applies to the entire territory of the contracting parties and covers natural, rural, urban and peri-urban areas. It concerns landscapes considered outstanding, as well as everyday or degraded areas. Certain “dimensions” of the landscape are presented in this publication, which addresses key issues for its future, including democracy, education, economy, leisure and advertising. Landscape management processes – and even the term “landscape” itself – are also analysed. This book forms part of a process of reflection on the major themes concerning the living environment.

"Explanation and Understanding, perhaps von Wright's best-known book, showed the influence of Wittgenstein, but marked a clean break with the positivism of his youth. He suggested that human action could not be explained causally by scientific or 'natural' laws, but had to be understood 'intentionally'—a concept connected with wants and beliefs developed in a social and cultural context."—Daily Telegraph"This is a very good book packed with much original material; it also contains illuminating reinterpretations of some familiar theories and arguments. The range of topics treated includes causation, action, verification of gnomic statements, practical inference and its use in the explanation of action, and the structure of explanation in history."—Philosophical Review

How the English Made the Alps

For English read British which is not to quibble with the title but, as Jim Ring himself explains, 'During the period on which this book focuses, it was the custom - in the words of a Scot - ''to let the part - the larger part - speak for the whole.'' Those countries which received them - France, Italy, Austria, Germany, and above all Switzerland - all talked of the English, and the presence of the English in the Alps was precisely so described. To use the term British would thus have been an anachronism.' The nineteenth century will forever be associated with the growth of the British Empire, but nearer home there was a quieter conquest taking place. Gradually the English were taking over the Alps, scaling their peaks, driving railways through them, and introducing both winter sports and those quintessential English institutions - tea, baths, lawn tennis and churches - to remote mountain villages. Jim Ring tells the remarkable story of the English love affair with the Alps, from its beginnings with the Romantic movement, when poets such as Byron and Shelly wrote of the mountains with awed delight, through the great days of the 1850s and 1860s and the formation of the Alpine Club, to the inter-war years when the English assured the future prosperity of the alpine resorts by virtually inventing and then popularizing downhill-skiing. Part history, part biography, How the English made the Alps brings the characters - the artists, the scientists, the gentleman-adventurers, the invalids, the aristocrats, eccentrics and mountain-scramblers - vividly to life. 'Jim Rings's book cannot be bettered.' Daily Mail 'Fascinating' Stephen Venables, Daily Telegraph 'Evocative and entertaining' Financial Times 'A comprehensive, well-written account of a fascinating subject' Guardian

A beloved multidisciplinary treatise comes to Penguin Classics Since its initial publication in 1958, The Poetics of Space has been a muse to philosophers, architects, writers, psychologists, critics, and readers alike. The rare work of irresistibly inviting philosophy, Bachelard’s seminal work brims with quiet revelations and stirring, mysterious imagery. This lyrical journey takes as its premise the emergence of the poetic image and finds an ideal metaphor in the intimate spaces of our homes. Guiding us through a stream of meditations on poetry, art, and the blooming of consciousness itself, Bachelard examines the domestic places that shape and hold our dreams and memories. Houses and rooms; cellars and attics; drawers, chests, and wardrobes; nests and shells; nooks and corners: No space is too vast or too small to be filled by our thoughts and our reveries. In Bachelard’s enchanting spaces, “We are never real historians, but always near poets, and our emotion is perhaps nothing but an expression of a poetry that was lost.” This new edition features a foreword by Mark Z. Danielewski, whose bestselling novel House of Leaves drew inspiration from Bachelard’s writings, and an introduction by internationally renowned philosopher Richard Kearney who explains the book’s enduring importance and its role within Bachelard’s remarkable career. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
