Traduzione di Lucio Angelini Edizione integrale Albert Einstein non appartiene a quel gruppo di studiosi che si chiudono nella «torre d’avorio» del loro lavoro di ricerca, immemori del mondo che li circonda. Al contrario, è sempre stato un osservatore acuto e critico delle tendenze e dei problemi del suo tempo. In questo senso, i discorsi, gli articoli, le lettere e gli appelli raccolti in questo volume rispecchiano non solo le posizioni scientifiche e filosofiche dell’autore, ma anche gli atteggiamenti politico-sociali. Un documento straordinario che ci restituisce nella sua interezza e profondità il pensiero di uno dei più grandi scienziati del nostro tempo. Albert Einsteinnacque a Ulm, in Germania, nel 1879. Fu direttore dell’Istituto Kaiser Wilhelm di Berlino fino al 1933, anno in cui fu costretto dai nazisti a lasciare la Germania. Si trasferì negli Stati Uniti, dove insegnò nell’Università di Princeton. Nel 1916 enunciò la sua teoria della relatività generale che rivoluzionò i concetti di spazio e tempo. Nel 1921 ricevette il premio Nobel per le sue ricerche sull’effetto fotoelettrico. Morì a Princeton il 18 aprile 1955. Di Albert Einstein la Newton Compton ha pubblicato Come io vedo il mondo - La teoria della relatività, Pensieri, idee e opinioni, Il significato della relatività e Il mondo come io lo vedo.

The original uncut edition of STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND by Hugo Award winner Robert A Heinlein - one of the most beloved, celebrated science-fiction novels of all time. Epic, ambitious and entertaining, STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND caused controversy and uproar when it was first published and is still topical and challenging today. Twenty-five years ago, the first manned mission to Mars was lost, and all hands presumed dead. But someone survived... Born on the doomed spaceship and raised by the Martians who saved his life, Valentine Michael Smith has never seen a human being until the day a second expedition to Mars discovers him. Upon his return to Earth, a young nurse named Jill Boardman sneaks into Smith's hospital room and shares a glass of water with him, a simple act for her but a sacred ritual on Mars. Now, connected by an incredible bond, Smith, Jill and a writer named Jubal must fight to protect a right we all take for granted: the right to love.

Read the lost masterpiece behind the major new film starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Michelle Williams Set during the year that France fell to the Nazis, Suite Française falls into two parts. The first is a brilliant depiction of a group of Parisians as they flee the Nazi invasion; the second follows the inhabitants of a small rural community under occupation. Suite Française is a novel that teems with wonderful characters struggling with the new regime. However, amidst the mess of defeat, and all the hypocrisy and compromise, there is hope. True nobility and love exist, but often in surprising places. Irène Némirovsky began writing Suite Française in 1940, but her death in Auschwitz prevented her from seeing the day, sixty-five years later, that the novel would be discovered by her daughter and hailed worldwide as a masterpiece.

'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.' Voted the most life changing book by a female author. A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much. To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.
