Federico García Lorca wrote the Gypsy Ballads between 1924 and 1927. When the book was published it caused a sensation in the literary world. Drawing on the traditional Spanish ballad form, Lorca described his Romancero Gitano as ‘the poem of Andalucía...A book that hardly expresses visible Andalusia at all, but where hidden Andalucía trembles’. Seeking to relate the nature of his proud and troubled region of Spain, he drew on a traditional gypsy form; yet the homely, unpretentious style of these poems barely disguises the undercurrents of conflicted identity never far from Lorca’s work. This bilingual edition, translated by Jane Duran and Glora García Lorca, is illuminated by photos and illustrations of and by Lorca, his own reflections on the poems and introductory notes by leading Lorca scholars: insights into the Romancero and the history of the Spanish ballad form by Andrés Soria Olmedo; notes on the dedications by Manuel Fernández-Montesinos; Lorca's 1935 lecture; and an introduction by Professor Christopher Maurer to the problems and challenges faced by translators of Lorca.

Feminist Theory: A Reader represents the history, intellectual breadth, and diversity of feminist theory. The selections are organized into five historical periods from the 18th century to the early 2000s and include key feminist manifestos to help readers see the link between feminist theory and application. The collection presents feminist thought, from its inception, as the province of women of different races, classes, nationalities, and sexualities in order to demonstrate the continuity in feminist theory discussions. A lexicon of the debates--clear, concise explanations of twelve key concepts that characterize the development of feminist thought since its inception--provides a vocabulary of important feminist theory terms and puts that vocabulary in context.

El Celler de Can Roca is the three Michelin starred Catalan restaurant in Spain which was opened in 1986 by the Roca brothers, Joan, Josep and Jordi. In 2015, it was once again named the best restaurant in the world by the Restaurant magazine. The Times restaurant critic A.A. Gill compared the restaurant to former restaurant El Bulli, which was once ranked as the number one restaurant in the world, saying that it was an outstanding kitchen, and part of the great confident wave of new Spanish food that is complex, technically exhausting, aware of the landscape, history and politics. The first edition of El Celler de Can Roca The Book was published in Spanish in a giant format weighing an incredible 5 kilos and retailing at 90 euros.

"This book should be on the desk of every 2016 Presidential candidate." —Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America With falling wages and rising inequality, persistent unemployment, failing schools, and broken cities, have America’s best days come and gone? In America Needs Talent, Jamie Merisotis, a globally recognized leader in philanthropy, higher education, and public policy, explains why talent is needed to usher in a new era of innovation and success, and why deliberate choices must be made by government, the private sector, education, and individuals to grow talent in America. What if you paid for education based on what you actually learned, instead of the time you spent in class? What if your visa application was processed as if you were an asset to our nation’s growing talent pool, instead of by Homeland Security? Merisotis proposes bold ideas to successfully deploy the world’s most talented people—from rethinking higher education to transforming immigration laws, revitalizing urban hubs, and encouraging private sector innovation. The outlook may be gloomy now, but it doesn’t need to be. The second American Century can happen—by developing and deploying the next thinkers, makers, and risk takers who will power America’s knowledge economy in the 21st century.

"A camper is not just a camper. It's whatever you want it to be." Introduced in the 1950s, the campervan has captured the hearts of people all over the world and become a much-loved symbol of travel and fun. Owners are extraordinarily passionate about their campers; some treat them as an extension of their home, others undertake epic journeys in them, across desert and sea, through Europe, Asia, and Africa. Some strap surfboards to the roof and head for the nearest beach, while others soup up the engines and take them drag racing. Many will spend hours restoring and customizing them, and even more talking about them with fellow bus owners. Campervan Crazy is a tribute to this passion, to the owners who have lavished time, effort, and inspiration on their vans, and, of course, to the campervan itself. It traces the cult of the campervan, from family runabouts, to holiday home and design icon. Above all else, the campervan is living history and you will find chapters dedicated to "births, marriages and deaths," "wide-eyed wanderers," as well as some "buses behaving badly."

Hegemony or Survival is Noam Chomsky's essential polemic on American foreign policy. Noam Chomsky, the world's foremost intellectual activist, presents an irrefutable analysis of America's pursuit of total domination and the catastrophic consequences that are sure to follow. From the funding of repressive regimes to the current 'war on terror', from the toppling of governments opposing its beliefs to the invasion of Iraq, America pursues its global strategy no matter what the cost. With the rigour and insight that have made him our most important unraveller of accredited lies, Noam Chomsky reveals the truth and the true motives behind America's quest for dominance - and seeks also to show how the world may yet step back from the brink. 'A devastating history of American foreign policy since 1945 as well as a dissection of the current "war on terror"' Tim Adams, Observer 'Anybody who thinks about American foreign policy has to read and contemplate Hegemony or Survival' Independent 'One of the radical heroes of our age. A towering intellect' Guardian Noam Chomsky is the author of numerous bestselling political books, including Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, Interventions, What We Say Goes, Hopes and Prospects, How the World Works and Occupy, all of which are published by Hamish Hamilton/Penguin.
