5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning book, 8 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Waterlife (Hardcover)
This is the kind of book to pick up and look through again and again. With fabulous hand-printed plates it is a delight to hold and behold, and if it wasn't an act of such violence to such a beautiful object, every picture would be worth cutting out and framing. It is a one book explanation of how books can survive in the digital era.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book, 8 Jan. 2013
Michael Jacobs blends travelogue with literary, social, cultural and political history - as well as personal rumination on his mother's illness. It is beautiful, magical, transporting you to the very many places along the Magdalena which, having read it, you will want to visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and fascinating book, 9 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow! If you want a justification for the continued existence of the paper book, you'd be hard-pressed to beat this. A combination of art, colour and creatively-imagined biography mean you imbibe the story of Marie and Pierre Curie and the world they made rather than feeling it forced on you. The only complaint: it's over in a flash (forgive the pun), and you'll want to read more.


Los Republicanos: Why Hispanics and Republicans Need Each Other
Los Republicanos: Why Hispanics and Republicans Need Each Other
by Leslie Sanchez
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight, 12 Feb. 2008
A powerful argument in favour of the alignment between US hispanics' social and political culture and the conservative movement. Leslie Sanchez writes with verve and insight; if she's right hispanics will be a vital (in both senses of the term) part of the conservative movement for decades to come, and seriously dent liberal chances of a long-lasting demographic and political realignment.
