The new encyclopedia of insects and their allies by Christopher O'Toole( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 41 libraries worldwide
With around one million species, insects and their allies are by far the most successful, variable and bizarre group of living things to have evolved on our planet. Yet much of their biology continues to remain a mystery. This book presents an authoritative overview of all terrestrial anthropods. Written by leading experts in entomology, the entries are accessible to both scientists and general readers. Taking each group in turn, from millipedes to mantids and from spiders to scorpions, this book provides a summary of the current scientific understanding of this fascinating group of animals. Illustrated with specially commissioned artwork illuminating the text, this work is the one-stop guide to the host of largely unseen 'mini-beasts' that share our world

Science fiction film by J. P Telotte( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Science fiction film examines one of the most enduring and popular genres of Hollywood cinema, suggesting how the science fiction film reflects attitudes toward science, technology, and reason as they have evolved in American culture over the course of the twentieth century. J.P. Telotte provides a survey of science fiction film criticism, emphasizing humanist, psychological, ideological, feminist, and postmodern critiques. He also sketches a history of the genre, from its earliest literary manifestations to the present, while touching on and comparing it to pulp fiction, early television science fiction, and Japanese anime. Telotte offers in-depth readings of three key films: Robocop, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and THX 1138, each of which typifies a particular form of science fiction fantasy. Challenging the boundaries usually seen between high and low culture, literature and film, Science fiction film reasserts the central role of fantasy in popular films, even those concerned with reason, science, and technology

Los autores nos revelan los aspectos políticos, sociales y culturales más relevantes, como los secretos de las pirámides, las creencias en los dioses y en el más allá, los ritos funerarios, la vida doméstica... a la vez que nos acercan a personajes tan célebres como Tutankhamon, Nefertiti, Cleopatra... en un intento afortunado de describir el cambiante rostro del Antiguo Egipto.

Los complejos funerarios reales del Reino Antiguo : un punto de vista socio económico by José Miguel Parra Ortiz( Computer File )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in Spanish and held by 4 libraries worldwide
En esta tesis doctoral se estudian los complejos funerarios reales del Reino Antiguo desde un punto de vista socioeconómico. En primer lugar se ponen de relieve sus bases predinásticas y la importancia que tuvieron la aparición de la sociedad egipcia del reino antiguo. El segundo aspecto que se trata es el económico, haciendo hincapié, tanto en el número de personas directamente implicadas en la construcción propiamente dicha, como en aquellas dedicadas al mantenimiento del culto. El sostén económico de los complejos funerarios reales y el carácter redistributivo de todo el conjunto también son puestos de relieve. Por último, se investigan los caracteres ideológicos visibles en la morfología de los complejos funerarios reales y el modo en que estos son percibidos por los diferentes grupos sociales del reino antiguo: rey, nobleza y pueblo llano
