Primavera de 1942. Galicia vive dúas guerras ocultas ao tempo. Na costa, nazis e aliados combaten no mar e nos portos polo dominio do Atlántico. Mentres, a resistencia interior enfróntase teimuda ao poder de Franco. Ata que todo se cruza. Unha mestra recibe o seu primeiro destino nunha distante aldea da Costa da Morte. Un guerrilleiro de sona acepta a misión máis perigosa. E un pintor de océanos asume un incómodo encargo. Sen sabelo, os tres van ficar unidos nun remuíño que une os seus pasados cos dramáticos acontecementos de Europa. Na súa segunda novela, Manuel Gago mergúllase nun poderoso relato de acción no que se mesturan a historia, a lenda e a ficción. "O exército de fume" é unha narración trepidante sobre esquecidos heroes anónimos que non saben que son tal. Cando dúas guerras se xuntan, o futuro do mundo está en xogo.

Experience this story of first love by A Wrinkle in Time author Madeleine L'Engle. This classic novel is now a major motion picture, Camilla Dickinson. Fifteen-year-old Camilla Dickinson has led a sheltered life on the Upper East Side with her architect father and stunningly beautiful mother. But this winter the security she has always known has vanished, because her parents' marriage is coming apart - and Camilla is caught in the middle. She finds a way to escape her troubles when she meets Frank, her best friend's brother, who is someone she can really talk to about life, death, God, and her dream of becoming an astronomer. When Frank introduces her to the important people in his life, who are so different from anyone she has met before, he opens her eyes to worlds beyond her own, almost as if he were a telescope helping her to see the stars. This novel, one of the author's earliest, is the story of a girl who, with the help of her first love, leaves childhood behind and enters adulthood with a newfound sense of self and inner strength.

In the first decade of the twenty first century, Corpus Linguistics as a methodology had already proved to be an impeccable one, and is probably the most elaborate way to approach empirical studies on languages. At present this seems to be essential to formulate general theories about most aspects of languages in different stages of their evolution. Corpora and Corpus Linguistics have been present in research for a reasonably long time now. The evolution of the discipline has been assessed by conferences, new publications and all sorts of events related to the field. Therefore, it seems most convenient to offer an outline of the advances made in the past decade as well as to try and make a guess as for what is yet to come. The editors have used their experience to collect a volume that certainly will have something to offer to the scientific community. Their work as compilers of the Coruña Corpus of English Scientific Writing has made them familiar with corpus-compilation and the time-consuming tasks it entails. As users of this and other corpora, they can also appreciate the tools modern technology offers researchers and what the possibilities of exploitation are. In this way, the selection of papers contained in this volume address a wide range of scholars interested in the discipline, both corpus compilers and users.

This book provides a detailed and up to date review of the framework of phases (Chomsky 2000 and subsequent work). It explores the interaction between the narrow syntactic computation and the external systems from a minimalist perspective. As has sometimes been noted, "Phase Theory" is the current way to study the cyclic nature of the system, and 'phases' are therefore the natural locality hallmark, being directly relevant for phenomena such as binding, agreement, movement, islands, reconstruction, or stress assignment. This work discusses the different approaches to phases that have been proposed in the recent literature, arguing in favor of the thesis that the points of cyclic transfer are to be related to uninterpretable morphology (the ?-features on the heads C and v*). This take on phases is adopted in order to investigate raising structures, binding, subjunctive dependents, and object shift (word order) in Romance languages, as well as the nature of islands.

An extraordinary display of historical inquisitiveness and stylistic maturity.-The New York Times Book Review Exploring the consequences of the European discovery of the Americas and challenging the myth of Columbus, Alejo Carpentier-the father of magical realism-studies the first meetings of the Western and American cultures and the tragic consequences of tarnished and abandoned idealism. Alejo Carpentier (1904__1980) is considered one of the fathers of modern Latin American literature. He lived in Cuba, France, and Venezuela. Thomas Christensen and Carol Christensen have translated the works of Julio Cort zar, Laura Esquivel, and Carlos Fuentes.

This is the fifth and final volume in a series of books examining the problem of suicide around the world and how suicide can be prevented. There are many groups of individuals that have been the focus of special interest. Part One of this volume presents current research and interventions for these groups, including those who have chronic medical illnesses, who are homeless and who are very young. Suicide in the workplace and in jails and prisons presents particular problems for mental health professionals, and the problems involved in preventing suicide in these situations are discussed. Part Two presents discussions of issues that have been of particular concern in recent years, such as whether antidepressants precipitate suicidal behaviour in some people as well as preventing it in others and the complex issues involved in physician-assisted suicide.
