San Gabriel es un hacienda en el interior del Perú. A ella acude, por razones familiares, un adolescente criado en la capital. «Pero San Gabriel no es un casa, como tú crees», le advierte Jacinto, «el loco» de la familia, «ni un pueblo.
Es una selva». Y, de hecho, en contra de toda expectativa, lo que encuentra Lucho en ese mundo rural, de mucha generaciones de terratenientes, es una comunidad que, como toda comunidad cerrada y aislada por mucho tiempo, «con sólo respirar el aire, se envenena» y en la que «el pez más grande se come al chico» y «los débiles no tienen derecho a vivir»…Pese a la atracción que ejerce sobre él su prima Leticia, mala y perversa, Lucho empezará a sentir el peso de las miserias amorosas, las intrigas, las rivalidades, los engaños y la saña gratuita con los que se entretienen sus parientes del campo. Sólo el gran terremoto hará tambalear ese mundo hasta entonces indemne y, una vez «abierta la brecha, unas llaman a otras y pronto son legión».

From volunteers ready to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border to the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children who have marched in support of immigrant rights, the United States has witnessed a surge of involvement in immigration activism. In The Latino Threat, Leo R.
Chavez critically investigates the media stories about and recent experiences of immigrants to show how prejudices and stereotypes have been used to malign an entire immigrant population—and to define what it means to be an American.
Pundits—and the media at large—nurture and perpetuate the notion that Latinos, particularly Mexicans, are an invading force bent on reconquering land once considered their own. Through a perceived refusal to learn English and an "out of control" birthrate, many say that Latinos are destroying the American way of life. But Chavez questions these assumptions and offers facts to counter the myth that Latinos are a threat to the security and prosperity of our nation. His breakdown of the "Latino threat" contests this myth's basic tenets, challenging such well-known authors as Samuel Huntington, Pat Buchanan, and Peter Brimelow. Chavez concludes that citizenship is not just about legal definitions, but about participation in society. Deeply resonant in today's atmosphere of exclusion, Chavez's insights offer an alternative and optimistic view of the vitality and future of our country.

A full, lavishly illustrated study of a nobleman whose exploits became the stuff of medieval romance, once recounted in the same breath as Robin Hood. Ranulf de Blondeville was fabulously rich and powerful. He served six kings, endured difficult regime-change, fought his way across half of France and back and more than once turned wrested victory from defeat. He never forgot that his roots were Norman although his efforts were for England, where he made his home. Loyal to a fault, as a youth he was disastrously married to the Duchess of Brittany, firebrand of contemporary politics, who tried to destroy him. His second wife brought happiness but not children. He was a fiercely independent spirit with a renowned temper. Unafraid of anyone, he besieged castles aggressively, constructed and defended them stoutly and built an Earldom of unparalleled power at England's heart.
Kings lavished titles on him and the Pope sought out his support, noting his exceptional leadership. On his death-bed he bequeathed to Henry III the only piece of Normandy ever recovered from the French. It was rumoured that when he died the devil himself kicked him out of hell, he was so much trouble.
