Tras el éxito rotundo de El precio del trono, Pilar Urbano hace un valiente ejercicio de investigación para acabar con mitos y medias verdades que han desfigurado nuestra reciente historia. Con documentos inéditos y testigos que al fin cuentan lo que nunca habían contado, Urbano averigua cómo actuó el Rey en la Transición. La autora sale al encuentro de las dudas y sospechas del hombre de la calle: si el Rey fue verdaderamente "el motos del cambio" o si el temor al Ejército y al búnker le aconsejaron pisar el freno; por qué el monarca se ausentó en París mientras Suárez legalizaba el Partido Comunista; desde cuándo y hasta dónde estuvo el Rey informando de la Operación Armada; cuál fue el auténtico motivo de la dimisión de Suárez; el juicio militar del 23-F, un simulacro consentido para tapar la trama conspirativa de diputados y empresarios dispuestos a gobernar bajo un general... Pilar Urbano introduce al lector en las estancias del poder, permitiéndole asistir a escenas electrizantes y escuchar en toda su crudeza los diálogos de los protagonistas tal como fueron. «Discrepo -dice la autora- de Camus cuando afirma que "la verdad tiene dos caras, una de las cuales debe permanecer oculta". Mi servicio al ciudadano es justamente lo contrario: descubrir tramos de la historia que nos venían ocultando y reclamaban luz.» * Fe de erratas. Para más información consultar en contenidos extra.

El concepto de transición es necesariamente confuso, porque siempre resulta difícil delimitar cuál es el punto de partida de cualquier proceso de cambio político, económico o cultural en la sociedad, así como si es meramente coyuntural o afecta al conjunto de la estructura de un país. En consecuencia, la delimitación del origen y término de cualquier proceso será siempre convencional y relativa. Para el conjunto de las ciencias sociales, los procesos de cambio político han tenido siempre un considerable interés, pues permiten entender mejor las sociedades modernas y actuar en consecuencia en su seno. Este libro, que gira en torno al concepto de transición, es fruto de las ponencias y comunicaciones presentadas en el Congreso Internacional sobre Transiciones que se celebró del 7 al 9 de mayo de 2014 en la Universitat Rovira i Virgili de Tarragona. En él se estudiaron los procesos de transición y transformación en el mundo contemporáneo y la serie de conflictos que suscitan en los más diversos ámbitos desde una perspectiva abiertamente pluridisciplinar.

De ser el hito fundacional de la democracia española y modelo de cambio político exportable a otras latitudes, la transición ha pasado a ser culpable de la impunidad de los crímenes del franquismo y del olvido de las víctimas de la represión, juzgada, igualmente, por haber originado una democracia defectuosa, una especie de franquismo blanqueado. Ambas visiones antagónicas de la construcción de la democracia española esconden, sin embargo, una elevada funcionalidad política. En La transición. Historia y relatos, Carme Molinero y Pere Ysàs argumentan que tanto los enfoques descalificadores como las apologías más o menos laudatorias no constituyen sino meras instrumentalizaciones que subestiman la característica determinante del tránsito de la dictadura franquista a la democracia parlamentaria. Todos estos relatos olvidan, voluntaria o involuntariamente, que se trató de un proceso incierto en el que nada estaba escrito de antemano, en el que sus actores y protagonistas fueron definiéndose al hilo de los acontecimientos y al albur de la dinámica correlación de fuerzas. Un libro iluminador, necesario en estos tiempos de incertidumbre, sobre la realidad más cuestionada de nuestro pasado reciente.

Newly translated from Spanish, The Man of Villa Tevere paints a remarkably vivid portrait of the day-to-day life of St. Josemaría Escrivá, “the saint of the ordinary.” Set in the world headquarters of Opus Dei and rich with anecdotes culled from the Founder’s contemporaries, this acclaimed biography chronicles the construction of the Roman center through Monsignor Escrivá's death there in 1975. When St. Josemaría arrived in Rome, nearly twenty years after founding Opus Dei, there was still much to be done and little was to come easily. Escrivá maintained that full canonical confirmation from the Catholic Church was imperative to the mission of Opus Dei, but he would not live to see that proclamation delivered. As a relatively young institution, Opus Dei was constantly challenged by limited funds, persecution, and St. Josemaría’s physical tribulations—including fifteen minutes during which he was clinically dead. Yet because he considered himself simply "a poor sinner, who loves Jesus Christ madly," no suffering was too great to be embraced with cheerfulness and sanctified for love of the Lord. And so it was from this place, from this man, that Opus Dei spread throughout the world. Pilar Urbano’s celebrated biography of St. Josemaría is now available for the first time in English, coinciding with the release of There Be Dragons, the much-anticipated film by Roland Joffe, featuring the life of St. Josemaría Escrivá. Like Escrivá himself, The Man of Villa Tevere overflows with vibrant energy and gentle wisdom, manifesting the spirit of Opus Dei and inspiring multitudes to lead truly Christian lives. Contains four pages of photos.

From a master chronicler of Spanish history comes a magnificent work about the pivotal years from 1522 to 1566, when Spain was the greatest European power. Hugh Thomas has written a rich and riveting narrative of exploration, progress, and plunder. At its center is the unforgettable ruler who fought the French and expanded the Spanish empire, and the bold conquistadors who were his agents. Thomas brings to life King Charles V—first as a gangly and easygoing youth, then as a liberal statesman who exceeded all his predecessors in his ambitions for conquest (while making sure to maintain the humanity of his new subjects in the Americas), and finally as a besieged Catholic leader obsessed with Protestant heresy and interested only in profiting from those he presided over. The Golden Empire also presents the legendary men whom King Charles V sent on perilous and unprecedented expeditions: Hernán Cortés, who ruled the “New Spain” of Mexico as an absolute monarch—and whose rebuilding of its capital, Tenochtitlan, was Spain’s greatest achievement in the sixteenth century; Francisco Pizarro, who set out with fewer than two hundred men for Peru, infamously executed the last independent Inca ruler, Atahualpa, and was finally murdered amid intrigue; and Hernando de Soto, whose glittering journey to settle land between Rio de la Palmas in Mexico and the southernmost keys of Florida ended in disappointment and death. Hugh Thomas reveals as never before their torturous journeys through jungles, their brutal sea voyages amid appalling storms and pirate attacks, and how a cash-hungry Charles backed them with loans—and bribes—obtained from his German banking friends. A sweeping, compulsively readable saga of kings and conquests, armies and armadas, dominance and power, The Golden Empire is a crowning achievement of the Spanish world’s foremost historian.

The Spanish Civil War, the Soviet Union, and Communism

In this compelling book Stanley G. Payne offers the first comprehensive narrative of Soviet and Communist intervention in the revolution and civil war in Spain. He documents in unprecedented detail Soviet strategies, Comintern activities, and the role of the Communist party in Spain from the early 1930s to the end of the civil war in 1939. Drawing on a very broad range of Soviet and Spanish primary sources, including many only recently available, Payne changes our understanding of Soviet and Communist intentions in Spain, of Stalin’s decision to intervene in the Spanish war, of the widely accepted characterization of the conflict as the struggle of fascism against democracy, and of the claim that Spain’s war constituted the opening round of World War II. The author arrives at a new view of the Spanish Civil War and concludes not only that the Democratic Republic had many undemocratic components but also that the position of the Communist party was by no means counterrevolutionary.
