Most widely held works by Carmen Martínez Gimeno
A concise history of Mexico by Brian R Hamnett( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in Spanish and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mexico's fascinating complexities are difficult to approach. This illustrated Concise History begins with a brief examination of contemporary issues, while the book as a whole - ranging from the Olmecs to the present day - combines a chronological and thematic approach while highlighting long-term issues and controversies over interpretation."--BOOK JACKET. "The book's prime objective is accessibility to a range of readers, including those interested in gaining a broad general knowledge of the country and those across the professions anxious to acquire a rapid but secure understanding of a subject where there are few starting points."--Jacket
The art and architecture of ancient Egypt by William Stevenson Smith( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The civilisation of Ancient Egypt flourished along the fertile banks of the River Nile. It was a civilisation that extended in virtually unbroken continuity from the fourth millennium B.C. to the conquest of Alexander the Great. During this long era of constancy the architectural and artistic styles characteristic of this civilisation changed and developed from period to period and dynasty to dynasty, as this book so vividly shows." "Monuments with their wall-reliefs and paintings and treasures and decoration as well as many other works of art are beautifully reproduced in over 400 illustrations, many in colour, which alongside this classic text, now revised and with a new updated bibliography, make this volume the definitive survey of this subject, appealing both to students and the general reader."--Jacket
Remaking women : feminism and modernity in the Middle East by Lila Abu-Lughod( )

3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to popular perceptions, newly veiled women across the Middle East are just as much products and symbols of modernity as the upper- and middle-class women who courageously took off the veil almost a century ago. To make this point, these essays focus on the "woman question" in the Middle East (most particularly in Egypt and Iran), especially at the turn of the century, when gender became a highly charged nationalist issue tied up in complex ways with the West. The last two decades have witnessed an extraordinary burst of energy and richness in Middle East women's studies, and
Understanding children with language problems by Shula Chiat( Book )

In this accessible introduction to the study of children's language difficulties, Shula Chiat explores the stumbling blocks that lie behind their struggle. The uniqueness of this book lies in its focus on individual children, the extensive and intriguing examples that illustrate their problems, and the step-by-step search for the source of those problems. This book will be welcomed by students of linguistics, language development and language disorders; teachers of language-impaired children; and speech and language therapists

On intelligence by Jeff Hawkins( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The developer of the PalmPilot and creator of the Redwood Neuroscience Institute examines the real future of artificial intelligence, explaining why the way we build computers today won't result in intelligent machines. He shows, using accessible examples, that the brain's neocortex is a memory-driven system that uses our senses and our perception of time, space, and consciousness to construct a predictive model of the world in a way that's totally unlike even the most complex computer software

The 33 strategies of war by Robert Greene( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As in his bestselling The 48 Laws of Power, Greene puts a modern spin on wisdom that has stood the test of history, only this time his role model is Sun Tzu rather than Machiavelli. The argument is fairly standard: despite our most noble intentions, "aggressive impulses that are impossible to ignore or repress" make military combat a fitting metaphor for getting ahead in life. Greene's advice covers everything from steeling one's mind for battle to specific defensive and offensive tactics -- notably, the final section on "dirty" warfare is one of the book's longest. Historical lessons are outlined and interpreted, with amplifying quotations crammed into the margins. Not all of the examples are drawn from the battlefield; in one section, Greene skips nimbly from Lyndon Johnson's tenacity to Julius Caesar's decisiveness, from Joan Crawford's refusal to compromise to Ted Williams's competitive drive. Alfred Hitchcock, he says, embodies "the detached-Buddha tactic" of appearing uninvolved while remaining in total control. The diversity of subject matter compensates for occasional lapses into stilted warriorese ("arm yourself with prudence, and never completely lay down your arms, not even for friends"). -- from http://www.amazon.com (June 22, 2011)
