обложка книги VAMIREHS VAMIREHS

VAMIREHS Ž.Ronī(vecākais)

Eiropas līdzenumos mamuti jau sāka izmirt, lielie plēsīgie zvēri jau bija aizklejojuši uz siltākām zemēm, bet ziemeļbriedis — uz saltajiem apgabaliem, mežos un stepēs ganījās sumbru, pirmvēršu tauru un lielragu briežu bari. Bija jau aizritējuši gadu simteņi kopš tā laika, kad izmira milzu lāči, kas mitinājās dziļās alās.

Tajos laikos slaidi, gargalvaini cilvēki apdzīvoja visu Eiropu no Baltijas jūras līdz Vidusjūrai un no austru­miem līdz rietumiem. Viņi mitinājās alās un klejoja no vienas vietas uz otru. Šie klejotāji jau pieprata dažu amatu un tiecās pēc mākslas. Ar trauslu akmens as­meni viņi darināja zīmējumus, kuros bija jūtama tieksme atveidot dabu.

обложка книги Veritas Veritas

1711 год.

Десять лет не прекращается война. Аббат Мелани, секретный агент Людовика XIV, прибывает в Вену. Он узнает о заговоре против императора Иосифа I.

Но кто готовится нанести смертельный удар? Брат, мечтающий о троне, или коварные иезуиты? Вероломные англичане или турки, извечные враги империи?

Разгадка кроется в таинственном сообщении турецкого посла. Пытаясь расшифровать это сообщение, помощники аббата гибнут один за другим.

Впервые на пути агента Людовика XIV оказался столь безжалостный противник.

обложка книги Venice: Pure City Venice: Pure City

With Venice: Pure City, Peter Ackroyd is at his most magical and magisterial, presenting a glittering, evocative, fascinating, story-filled portrait of the ultimate city.

“Ackroyd provides a history of and meditation on the actual and imaginary Venice in a volume as opulent and paradoxical as the city itself. . . . How Ackroyd deftly catalogues the overabundance of the city’s real and literary tropes and touchstones is itself a kind of tribute to La Serenissima, as Venice is called, and his seductive voice is elegant and elegiac. The resulting book is, like Venice, something rich, labyrinthine and unique that makes itself and its subject both new and necessary.” —Publishers Weekly

The Venetians’ language and way of thinking set them aside from the rest of Italy. They are an island people, linked to the sea and to the tides rather than the land. This lat¬est work from the incomparable Peter Ackroyd, like a magic gondola, transports its readers to that sensual and surprising city.

His account embraces facts and romance, conjuring up the atmosphere of the canals, bridges, and sunlit squares, the churches and the markets, the festivals and the flowers. He leads us through the history of the city, from the first refugees arriving in the mists of the lagoon in the fourth century to the rise of a great mercantile state and its trading empire, the wars against Napoleon, and the tourist invasions of today. Everything is here: the merchants on the Rialto and the Jews in the ghetto; the glassblowers of Murano; the carnival masks and the sad colonies of lepers; the artists—Bellini, Titian, Tintoretto, Tiepolo. And the ever-present undertone of Venice’s shadowy corners and dead ends, of prisons and punishment, wars and sieges, scandals and seductions.

Ackroyd’s Venice: Pure City is a study of Venice much in the vein of his lauded London: The Biography. Like London, Venice is a fluid, writerly exploration organized around a number of themes. History and context are provided in each chapter, but Ackroyd’s portrait of Venice is a particularly novelistic one, both beautiful and rapturous. We could have no better guide—reading Venice: Pure City is, in itself, a glorious journey to the ultimate city.

обложка книги Visit Sunny Chernobyl: And Other Adventures in the World's Most Polluted Places Visit Sunny Chernobyl: And Other Adventures in the World's Most Polluted Places

For most of us, traveling means visiting the most beautiful places on Earth—Paris, the Taj Mahal, the Grand Canyon. It’s rare to book a plane ticket to visit the lifeless moonscape of Canada’s oil sand strip mines, or to seek out the Chinese city of Linfen, legendary as the most polluted in the world. But in Visit Sunny Chernobyl, Andrew Blackwell embraces a different kind of travel, taking a jaunt through the most gruesomely polluted places on Earth.

From the hidden bars and convenience stores of a radioactive wilderness to the sacred but reeking waters of India, Visit Sunny Chernobyl fuses immersive first-person reporting with satire and analysis, making the case that it’s time to start appreciating our planet as it is—not as we wish it would be. Irreverent and reflective, the book is a love letter to our biosphere’s most tainted, most degraded ecosystems, and a measured consideration of what they mean for us.

Equal parts travelogue, expose, environmental memoir, and faux guidebook, Blackwell careens through a rogue’s gallery of environmental disaster areas in search of the worst the world has to offer—and approaches a deeper understanding of what’s really happening to our planet in the process.

Review

“A wise, witty travel adventure that packs a punch—and one of the most entertaining and informative books I’ve read in years. Visit Sunny Chernobyl is a joy to read and will make you think.”

—Dan Rather

“Andrew Blackwell takes eco-tourism into a whole new space. Visit Sunny Chernobyl is a darkly comic romp.”

—Elizabeth Kolbert, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe.

“Entertaining, appealing, and thoughtful travelogue covers some of the world's most befouled spots with lively, agile wit… The book… offers an astute critique of how visions of blighted spots create an either/or vision of how to care for the environment and live in the world.”

—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“We’ve got lessons to learn from disaster sites. Thankfully, Visit Sunny Chernobyl means we don’t have to learn them first-hand. Cancel your holiday to Chernobyl: Pick up this brilliant book!”

—The Yes Men

“Avoids the trendy tropes of ‘ecotourism’ in favor of the infinitely more interesting world of eco-disaster tourism… Blackwell is a smart and often funny writer, who has produced a complex portrait in a genre that typically avoids complexity in favor of outrage.”

Wall Street Journal

“Andrew Blackwell is a wonderful tour guide to the least wonderful places on earth. His book is a riveting toxic adventure. But more than just entertaining, the book will teach you a lot about the environment and the future of our increasingly polluted world.”

—A. J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically

“With a touch of wry wit and a reporter's keen eye, Andrew Blackwell plays tourist in the centers of environmental destruction and finds sardonic entertainment alongside tragedy. His meticulous observations will make you laugh and weep, and you will get an important education along the way.”

—David K. Shipler, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and author of Rights at Risk: The Limits of Liberty in Modern America

“I’m a contrarian traveler. I don’t obey any airport signs. I love the off season. And, when someone says to avoid a certain place, and almost every time the U.S. State Department issues a travel warning, that destination immediately becomes attractive to me. Visit Sunny Chernobyl is my new favorite guidebook to some places I admit to have visited. As a journalist, as well as a traveler, I consider this is an essential read. It is a very funny—and very disturbing look at some parts of our world that need to be acknowledged before we take our next trip anywhere else.”

—Peter Greenberg, Travel Editor for CBS News

“Humor and dry wit lighten a travelogue of the most polluted and ravaged places in the world… With great verve, and without sounding preachy, he exposes the essence and interconnectedness of these environmental problems.”

Starred Kirkus Review

“In ‘Visit Sunny Chernobyl: And Other Adventures in the World’s Most Polluted Places,’ Blackwell avoids the trendy tropes of “ecotourism” in favor of the infinitely more interesting world of eco-disaster tourism… [Visit Sunny Chernobyl] is a nuanced understanding of environmental degradation and its affects on those living in contaminated areas… [Blackwell] offers a diligently evenhanded perspective… Blackwell is a smart and often funny writer, who has produced a complex portrait in a genre that typically avoids complexity in favor of outrage.”

The Wall Street Journal

“In this lively tour of smog-shrouded cities, clear-cut forests, and the radioactive zone around a failed Soviet reactor, a witty journalist ponders the appeal of ruins and a consumer society’s conflicted approach to environmental woes.”

The Times-Picayune

“Entertaining, appealing, and thoughtful travelogue covers some of the world’s most befouled spots with lively, agile wit… The book … offers an astute critique of how visions of blighted spots create an either/or vision of how to care for the environment and live in the world.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Devastatingly hip and brutally relevant.”

Booklist, Starred Review

Visit Sunny Chernobyl is hard to categorize—part travelogue, part memoir, part environmental exposé—but it is not hard to praise. It’s wonderfully engaging, extremely readable and, yes, remarkably informative… An engagingly honest reflection on travel to some of the world's worst environments by a guide with considerable knowledge to share.”

—Roni K. Devlin, owner of Literary Life Bookstore & More

“Ghastliness permeates Visit Sunny Chernobyl… [Blackwell] presents vivid descriptions of these wretched places, along with both their polluters and the crusaders who are trying—usually without success—to clean them up.”
