La imposición local, las de los municipios y la de las provincias en régimen general, es quizás la más olvidada y por ende menos estudiada por los alumnos y profesionales del Derecho Financiero. Y eso a pesar de la evidente importancia tanto económica como jurídica, que dicha fuente de financiación pública, está obteniendo en estos últimos años. Este libro intenta suplir esta laguna, ya que desde un enfoque totalmente práctico, recoge una serie de supuestos generales, de los seis impuestos que constituyen el sistema (Impuesto sobre Bienes Inmuebles, Impuesto sobre Incremento del Valor de los Terrenos de Naturaleza Urbana, Impuesto sobre Actividades Económicas, Impuesto sobre Construcciones, Instalaciones y Obras, Impuesto sobre Vehículos de Tracción Mecánica e Impuesto sobre Cotos de Caza) así como multitud de cuestiones, asimismo prácticas, que trufan toda la obra, consiguiendo que el estudioso de esta materia obtenga un dominio suficiente de esta materia. «Esta obra además se encuadra dentro del proyecto de investigación "El procedimiento tributario local: aportaciones para su modernización" (DER2010-16786) (financiado con fondos FEDER).»

Peter Burke follows up his magisterial Social History of Knowledge, picking up where the first volume left off around 1750 at the publication of the French Encyclopédie and following the story through to Wikipedia. Like the previous volume, it offers a social history (or a retrospective sociology of knowledge) in the sense that it focuses not on individuals but on groups, institutions, collective practices and general trends. The book is divided into 3 parts. The first argues that activities which appear to be timeless - gathering knowledge, analysing, disseminating and employing it - are in fact time-bound and take different forms in different periods and places. The second part tries to counter the tendency to write a triumphalist history of the 'growth' of knowledge by discussing losses of knowledge and the price of specialization. The third part offers geographical, sociological and chronological overviews, contrasting the experience of centres and peripheries and arguing that each of the main trends of the period - professionalization, secularization, nationalization, democratization, etc, coexisted and interacted with its opposite. As ever, Peter Burke presents a breath-taking range of scholarship in prose of exemplary clarity and accessibility. This highly anticipated second volume will be essential reading across the humanities and social sciences.

Photographer Todd Gray worked with Michael Jackson for several years before Michael requested that he become his personal photographer, a relationship that would encompass Michael's performances with the Jacksons through the release of his smash solo albums Off the Wall and Thriller. This collection of unseen, intimate, and joyful pictures of Michael taken over a span of 10 years reveal him at home, with his family and fans, in career-making live performances, and on the "Beat It" video shoot. A young black man not much older than Jackson at the time they met, Gray brings unique insights to his time with the singer, contributing stories and context to the images, presenting a rare, intimate portrait of Michael at a creative peak as he grew from a brilliantly talented young man into a pop icon.

Fast, precise, hilariously timed and mercilessly honest, this lively anthology of stories lays bare every pretension ever to have offered comfort to the middle-class psyche. From the zeal of a mother’s group staging a world-record breastfeeding attempt, to couples role-playing their way into parenthood at a third world "adoption workshop," to partners so affectionate they only communicate through baby talk—and lovers so addicted to arguing that even acts of God can't deter them—this humorous collection represents an exclusive English interpretation of award-winning writing. With stories so delicate and fleet-footed that even the most single-minded protagonists prove likable in their raucous charm and with insightful cultural references that highlight the differences and similarities of modern human nature, this intriguingly sardonic literary grouping is a refreshing foray into relationships, life, and love as a competitive sport.
