Book Description :

Ken Follett’s magnificent new historical epic begins as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage. A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man’s world in the mining pits. . . . An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson’s White House. . . . A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy. . . . And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution. From the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty, Fall of Giants takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families—and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again. . . . Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

Book Description :

"Esta es la historia de mis abuelos y de los vuestros, de nuestros padres y de nuestras propias vidas. De alguna forma es la historia de todos nosotros." Ken Follett La historia empieza en 1911, el día de la coronación del rey Jorge V en la abadía de Westminster. El destino de los Williams, una familia minera de Gales, está unido por el amor y la enemistad al de los Fitzherbert, aristócratas y propietarios de minas de carbón. Lady Maud Fitzherbert se enamorará de Walter von Ulrich, un joven espía en la embajada alemana de Londres. Sus vidas se entrelazarán con la de un asesor progresista del presidente de Estados Unidos, Woodrow Wilson, y la de dos hermanos rusos a los que la guerra y la revolución les ha arrebatado su sueño de buscar fortuna en América. Tras el éxito de Los pilares de la Tierra y Un mundo sin fin , Ken Follett presenta esta gran novela épica que narra la historia de cinco familias durante los años turbulentos de la Primera Guerra Mundial, la Revolución Rusa y la lucha de hombres y mujeres por sus derechos. About the Author Ken Follett nació en Cardiff (Gales) y cuando tenía diez años su familia se mudó a Londres. Se licenció en filosofía en la Universidad de Londres y posteriormente se dedicó al periodismo. Durante sus años de reportero empezó a escribir obras de ficción. Sin embargo hasta 1978 no se convirtió en escritor de éxito, con la publicación de El ojo de la aguja. A partir de entonces, cada novela de Ken Follett se convierte en un éxito internacional. Actualmente vive en una vieja rectoría de Hertfordshire con su esposa Barbara. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. Primera Parte El cielo amenazador 2 Enero de 1914 I El conde Fitzherbert, de veintiocho años de edad, conocido por su familia y amigos como Fitz, era el noveno hombre más rico de toda Gran Bretaña. No había hecho nada en absoluto para ganar sus cuantiosos ingresos, sino que sencillamente, se había limitado a heredar miles de hectáreas de tierra en Gales y en Yorkshire. Las granjas no producían muchos beneficios, pero debajo de ellas había grandes cantidades de carbón, y el abuelo de Fitz se había hecho inmensamente rico otorgando las concesiones para le explotación del mineral. Estaba claro que era la voluntad de Dios que los Fitzherbert gobernasen a sus semejantes y que viviesen de manera acorde a su condición, pero Fitz pensaba que no había hecho nada que justificase la fe que Dios había depositado en él. Su padre, el anterior conde, había sido un caso distinto. Oficial de la Armada, había sido nombrado almirante tras el bombardeo de Alejandría en 1882, se había convertido en embajador británico en San Petersburgo y, finalmente, había sido ministro en el gabinete de lord Salisbury. Los conservadores perdieron las elecciones generales de 1906 y el padre de Fitz murió escasas semanas más tarde, una muerte precipitada —de eso Fitz estaba seguro— por el hecho de ver a liberales irresponsables como David Lloyd George y Winston Churchill hacerse cargo del gobierno de Su Majestad. Fitz ocupó su escaño en la Cámara de los Lores, la cámara legislativa superior del Parlamento británico, como par conservador. Hablaba un francés muy correcto y se defendía en ruso, y su sueño era llegar a convertirse algún día en jefe del Foreign Office. Por desgracia, los liberales no dejaban de ganar las elecciones continuamente, de modo que aún no había tenido ocasión de ser ministro del gobierno. Su carrera militar había sido igual de mediocre. Había asistido a la academia de entrenamiento de oficiales del ejercito de Sandhurst, y pasó tres años con el regimiento de los Fusileros Galeses para convertirse en capitán. Tras su matrimonio abandonó la carrera militar, pero pasó a ser coronel honorífico de los Territorials de Gales del Sur. Lamentablemente, los coroneles honoríficos nunca ganaban medallas. Sin embargo, había algo de lo que sí se sentía orgulloso, pensaba mientras la locomotora de vapor avanzaba por los valles del sur del País de Gales: dos semanas más tarde, el rey en persona iba a pasar unos días en la casa de campo de Fitz. El rey Jorge V y el padre de Fitz habían sido compañeros en la Armada en su juventud. Recientemente, el rey había expresado su deseo de conocer qué era lo que pensaban sus súbditos más jóovenes, y Fitz había organizado una discreta velada en casa para que Su Majestad conociera a algunos de los más brillantes de su generación. En aquellos momentos, Fitz y su esposa, Bea, iban de camino a la mansión para terminar de disponerlo todo para la visita del monarca. Fitz sentía un gran apego por las tradiciones. No había nada en la historia de la humanidad capaz de rivalizar con la estabilidad que proporcionaba el orden establecido, basado en los cuatro estamentos de la sociedad: monarquía, aristocracia, comerciantes y campesinado. Sin embargo, al mirar por la ventanilla del tren, como en esos precisos momentos, veía que la sombra de una seria amenaza pendía sobre las costumbres tradicionales de la sociedad británica, una amenaza mayor que cualquiera de las que se hubiesen cernido sobre ella en los cuatrocientos años anteriores. Cubriendo por completo las laderas de los montes, otrora tan verdes, extendiéndose como una plaga de manchas grisáceas en las hojas de los rododendros, surgían las casas de los mineros del carbón. En aquellas mugrientas casuchas se hablaba de republicanismo, de ateísmo y de revolución. Solo había pasado

*Levison Wood's documentary series on WALKING WITH ELEPHANTS is available to watch now on Channel 4* This book comes at a critical time. Fifty years ago, Africa was home to just over 1.3 million elephants, but by 1990 the number had halved. Meanwhile in the span of a lifetime, the human population has more than doubled. In Levison Wood's The Last Giants, he explores the rapid decline of one of the world's favourite animals. Filled with stories from his own time spent travelling with elephants in Africa, and documenting their migration in his Channel 4 series, Walking With Elephants, the book is a passionate wake-up call for this endangered species we take for granted. The Last Giants was written to inspire us all to act - to learn more and help save the species from permanent extinction.

From the bestselling author Ken Follett, The Evening and the Morning is a historical epic that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins. A TIME OF CONFLICT It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages, and England faces attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Life is hard, and those with power wield it harshly, bending justice according to their will – often in conflict with the king. With his grip on the country fragile and with no clear rule of law, chaos and bloodshed reign. THREE LIVES INTERTWINED Into this uncertain world three people come to the fore: a young boatbuilder, who dreams of a better future when a devastating Viking raid shatters the life that he and the woman he loves hoped for; a Norman noblewoman, who follows her beloved husband across the sea to a new land only to find her life there shockingly different; and a capable monk at Shiring Abbey, who dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a centre of learning admired throughout Europe. THE DAWN OF A NEW AGE Now, with England at the dawn of the Middle Ages, these three people will each come into dangerous conflict with a ruthless bishop, who will do anything to increase his wealth and power, in an epic tale of ambition and rivalry, death and birth, and love and hate. Thirty years ago we were introduced to Kingsbridge in The Pillars of the Earth, and now in this masterful prequel international bestseller Ken Follett will take us on a journey into a rich past, which will end where his masterpiece begins.

In When Giants Fall, Panzner makes his case for the turbulent economic changes that will be occurring over the next few years and examines the resulting economic opportunities. According to Panzner, the economic changes will be widespread. Businesses will struggle amid wars, shortages, logistical disruptions, and a breakdown of the established monetary order. Individuals will be forced to rethink livelihoods, lifestyles, living arrangements, and locales. Political structures will be in flux, as local leaders gain influence at the expense of national authorities. For many people, it will be nothing short of a modern Dark Ages, where each day brings fresh anxieties, unfamiliar risks, and a sense of foreboding. However, for those enlightened few who understand what is really going on and what happens next, the chaotic years ahead represent the opportunity of a lifetime - a time when they can realize goals they never thought possible and achieve a level of wealth, security, and inner peace that will leave them head-and-shoulders above everyone else. In this book, Panzner offers cutting-edge insights and strategies that will enable readers to stay well ahead of the game during the uniquely unsettling period ahead.

Book Description :

Today, an ancient world is vanishing right before our eyes: the age of giant animals. Over 40,000 years ago, the earth was ruled by megafauna: mammoths and mastodons, saber-toothed tigers and giant sloths. Of course, those creatures no longer exist, due to the evolution and arrival of the wildly adaptive human species, among other factors. Many more of the world's biggest and baddest creatures - including the black rhino, the dodo, giant tortoises, and the great auk - have vanished since our world became truly global. Last of the Giants chronicles those giant animals and apex predators who have been pushed to extinction in the modern era.

Book Description :

‘The imagination has its sanctuaries, too.’ High up in the Hindu Kush, between the ancient pagan Kalash people and the new medievalists of the Taliban, a charismatic young Spaniard, Jordi Magraner, made his home, mastering the local languages and customs before meeting his death in the most mysterious way. In this magisterial book, Gabi Martínez sets off in Jordi’s footsteps to the land of the giants in order to try to solve the riddle of this murder and of Jordi’s life. Jordi Magraner was a brilliant student of the natural world, whose lab was the ravine and the scarp and the tent. His observational investigations led him to places where the legendary barmanu had been sighted, and he began to develop a thesis about the life of the wild man. His passion for pursuit and discovery took him onto ever more perilous terrain in the Pakistani-Afghan borderlands. And, one by one, Jordi turned his back on the Europeans who sought to assist him, preferring instead to entrust his safety to an Afghan youth fleeing the Taliban, and to a wondrous working dog called Fjord. Jordi sought other rewards, and followed a winding, rocky path, down which Gabi Martínez resourcefully tracks him on this enthralling journey of detection and adventure in the Himalayas — where the truth is never as clear and pristine as the majestic mountains and the fast-flowing streams. PRAISE FOR GABI MARTINEZ ‘Enthralling from beginning to end, In the Land of Giants is an inspired telling of an uncommon story.’ The West Australian ‘Martinez ably conjures the scent of juniper, the taste of black, salty tea and the sight of a 40-donkey convoy heading to Panjsh.’ The Spectator
