A
<i>A </i>är den fristående uppföljare på boken <i>C </i>och utspelar sig mest i Stockholm. Boken, som är självbiografisk, är en naken och rak historia om kärlek och passion. Men också om motsatsen; det mörker som plötsligt kan uppstå när en älskad människa inte längre finns där för en. <i>A</i> är dessutom en inre resa mot en ny identitet för Anna och hon söker sig fram via Stockholms olika klubbar och barer för att hitta någon som kan fylla tomrummet.<br /><br />”Jag drömmer ständigt om C. Ibland är jag på sjukhuset i drömmen och springer i de ändlösa korridorerna utan att hitta rätt sal. Varenda gång jag öppnar dörren så är det fel och någon annan med kal hjässa och sla...

A A Gambling Man
Charles II was thirty when he crossed the Channel in fine May weather in 1660. His Restoration was greeted with maypoles and bonfires, like spring after long years of Cromwell's rule. But there was no going back, no way he could 'restore' the old. Certainty had vanished. The divinity of kingship fled with his father's beheading. 'Honour' was now a word tossed around in duels. 'Providence' could no longer be trusted. As the country was rocked by plague, fire and war, people searched for new ideas by which to live. Exactly ten years later Charles II would stand again on the shore at Dover, laying the greatest bet of his life in a secret deal with his cousin, Louis XIV.<br /...

A Alma Nova
Os lethargos gentis, os extasis bucolicos E as desditas crueis do proprio coração; Mas não celebro o vicio e odeio o desalinho Da muza sem pudor que mostra no caminho A liga á multidão.<br /> A sagrada poesia, a peregrina eterna, Ouvi dizer que soffre uma affecção moderna, Uns fastios sem nome, uns tedios ideaes; Que ensaia, presumida, o gesto romanesco E, vaidosa de si, no collo eburneo e fresco, Põe crémes triviaes!<br /> Oh, pensam mal de ti, da tua castidade! Deslumbra-os o fulgor dos astros da cidade, Os falsos ouropeis das cortezãs gentis, E julgam já tocar-te as roçagantes vestes Ó deusa virginal das coleras celestes, Das graças juvenis!<br /> Retine a cançoneta al...

A Amante do Reizinho
Um ano antes da queda da monarquia, o último rei de Portugal conheceu em Paris uma das estrelas mais cintilantes do music-hall francês. Chamava- se Gaby Deslys e arrebatou, de imediato, o coração do jovem D. Manuel II, a quem sua mãe, a Rainha D. Amélia, tratava carinhosamente por Reizinho. Alvo de muita bisbilhotice e especulação, o romance amoroso, que se prolongaria por dois anos, foi usado pelos republicanos para fragilizar ainda mais a monarquia, enquanto fora de portas, onde era igualmente muito falado, serviria de inspiração a criadores.

A Book of Remarkable Criminals
The silent workings, and still more the explosions, of human passion which bring to light the darker elements of man's nature present to the philosophical observer considerations of intrinsic interest; while to the jurist, the study of human nature and human character with its infinite varieties, especially as affecting the connection between motive and action, between irregular desire or evil disposition and crime itself, is equally indispensable and difficult.

A l'aise dans la barbarie
"Croyances et idéologies semblent aujourd'hui s'effondrer. Notre époque est de désillusions." Ce texte a été écrit en réaction aux tragédies actuelles dont nous subissons les conséquences sur les plans social, politique et finalement individuel. La clé de cette évolution qui est l'existence chez l'être humain d'une tendance à la destruction se trouve dans l'oeuvre de Freud qui a avancé l'hypothèse d'un instinct de mort. Il s'est donc agi pour Marc Nacht de réévaluer la portée considérable de ce concept. En recherchant la signification du but fondamental de cette pulsion, Marc Nacht a été amené à donner plusieurs exemples qui permettent de repérer des lieux où s'exerce l'a...

A Life of William Shakespeare
This is a biographical book. I cannot promise my readers any startling revelations. But my researches have enabled me to remove some ambiguities which puzzled my predecessors, and to throw light on one or two topics that have hitherto obscured the course of Shakespeare's career. I have endeavoured to set before my readers a plain and practical narrative of the great dramatist's personal history as concisely as the needs of clearness and completeness would permit'. I have sought to provide students of Shakespeare with a full record of the duly attested facts and dates of their master's career'. I have avoided merely 'sthetic criticism'. My estimates of the value of Shakesp...

A Man and the Rise of a State
<b>History…Is Made By Great People</b><br /> No person of vision or insight can deny the development that Bahrain has achieved through the last thirty years, that boosted it to the rank of advanced countries and staunchly placed it in a prominent position amongst them. Undoubtedly, each aspect of this development, though varied and numerous - is worthy of being the theme of a separate book, if not several books. Therefore, when I first thought of writing this book, seven years ago, I was totally perplexed : What should I write about ? What should I start with ? All achievements, whether internal or external, seemed to me important enough to be placed at the top of my list...
