The rabbi by Noah Gordon( Book )
33 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
Michael Kind, descendiente de judíos criado en un barrio marginal de Nueva York, se debate entre el antagónico legado recibido por su abuelo y su educador, y el proporcionado por su padre. El abuelo le trasmitió su conciencia de pertenencia a la comunidad judía, mientras que su educador se encargó de la enseñanza religiosa. Como contrapunto a esa instrucción anclada en los orígenes de su pueblo, Michael comenzó de la mano de su padre a valorar la libertad y a atreverse a cuestionar las normas. Las dos caras de esa formación se reflejarán en la vida de Michael adulto, quien decidirá convertirse en un rabino tolerante y abierto, dispuesto a enfrentarse a todos aquellos obstáculos religiosos y sociales que se opongan a su relación con una mujer que no pertenece a la comunidad judía. Con El rabino -a la que The Saturday Review calificó como "Una obra épica sobre el judaísmo en América"- Noah Gordon confirma una vez más ser uno de los referentes del género de narrativa histórica

At a small British trade fair in Moscow, a message of global importance is made up of three very fragile human links: a Soviet physicist (code name Bluebird) burdened with a secret knowledge; a beautiful young Russian woman to whom the papers are entrusted; and Barley Blair, a bewildered English publisher pressed into service by British Intelligence to ferret out the source of the document.

Gödel's proof by Ernest Nagel( Book )
7 editions published between 1970 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"In 1931 Kurt Godel disrupted some of the fundamental assumptions underlying mathematics and logic with the publication of his revolutionary paper, "On Formally Undecidable Propositions of Principia Mathematica and Related Systems." Ironically, few mathematicians of the time were able to understand the young scholar's complex proof, and the full importance of this work was largely overlooked for many years. Godel was at last recognized by his peers and presented with the first Albert Einstein Award in 1951 for achievement in the natural sciences - the highest honor of its kind in the United States. The award committee, which included Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer, described his work as "one of the greatest contributions to the sciences in recent times."" "In Godel's Proof, Ernest Nagel and James Newman provide a readable and non-technical explanation for both scholars and non-specialists of the main ideas and broad implications of Godel's discovery. First published in 1958 and in print continuously in ten languages, this highly popular, seminal work offers every educated person with an interest in mathematics, logic, and philosophy the opportunity to understand a previously difficult and inaccessible subject."--Jacket

Portnoy's complaint by Philip Roth( Book )
9 editions published between 1969 and 2000 in Spanish and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Along with Saul Bellow's Herzog, Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint defined Jewish American literature in the 1960s. Roth's masterpiece takes place on the couch of a psychoanalyst, an appropriate jumping-off place for an insanely comical novel about the Jewish American experience. Roth has written several great books--Goodbye, Columbus and When She Was Good among them, but it is perhaps Portnoy's Complaint for which he is best known
