Nosotros, el pueblo de Who HQ, traemos a los lectores la historia completa (argumentos y todo) de cómo surgió la Constitución de los Estados Unidos.

We the people at Who HQ bring readers the full story--arguments and all--of how the United States Constitution came into being in this Spanish entry in the WHO HQ series.

Firmada el 17 de septiembre de 1787, cuatro años después de la Guerra de la Independencia, la Constitución estableció la ley suprema de los Estados Unidos de América. Hoy es fácil que demos por sentado este proyecto de gobierno. Pero los legisladores (cincuenta y cinco hombres de casi todos los 13 estados originales), discutieron ferozmente durante muchos meses sobre lo que acabó siendo solo un documento de cuatro páginas. Esta es una fascinante mirada entre bastidores a las cuestiones más disputadas (las de los estados del Norte y del Sur; los estados grandes y los pequeños) y a los actores clave, como James Madison, Alexander Hamilton y George Washington, que sufrieron innumerables revisiones para hacer realidad la Constitución.

Signed on September 17, 1787--four years after the American War for Independence--the Constitution laid out the supreme law of the United States of America. Today it's easy for us to take this blueprint of our government for granted. But the Framers--fifty-five men from almost all of the original 13 states--argued fiercely for many months over what ended up being only a four-page document. Here is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the hotly fought issues--those between Northern and Southern States; big states and little ones--and the key players such as James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and George Washington who suffered through countless revisions to make the Constitution happen.

    Babel: Around the World in Twenty Languages

    $25.00
    More Info
    English is the world language, except that most of the world doesn't speak it--only one in five people does. Dorren calculates that to speak fluently with half of the world's 7.4 billion people in their mother tongues, you would need to know no fewer than twenty languages. He sets out to explore these top twenty world languages, which range from the familiar (French, Spanish) to the surprising (Malay, Javanese, Bengali). Babel whisks the reader on a delightful journey to every continent of the world, tracing how these world languages rose to greatness while others fell away and showing how speakers today handle the foibles of their mother tongues. Whether showcasing tongue-tying phonetics or elegant but complicated writing scripts, and mind-bending quirks of grammar, Babel vividly illustrates that mother tongues are like nations: each has its own customs and beliefs that seem as self-evident to those born into it as they are surprising to the outside world.

    Among many other things, Babel will teach you why modern Turks can't read books that are a mere 75 years old, what it means in practice for Russian and English to be relatives, and how Japanese developed separate "dialects" for men and women. Dorren lets you in on his personal trials and triumphs while studying Vietnamese in Hanoi, debunks ten widespread myths about Chinese characters, and discovers that Swahili became the lingua franca in a part of the world where people routinely speak three or more languages. Witty, fascinating and utterly compelling, Babel will change the way you look at and listen to the world and how it speaks.

    The leading figure of absurdist theater and one of the great innovators of the modern stage, Eugène Ionesco (1909-94) did not write his first play, The Bald Soprano, until 1950. He went on to become an internationally renowned master of modern drama, famous for the comic proportions and bizarre effects that allow his work to be simultaneously hilarious, tragic, and profound. As Ionesco has said, "Theater is not literature. . . . It is simply what cannot be expressed by any other means."

    Bartleby, el escribiente es un magnífico y conmovedor relato, cuya lectura resulta inquietante, divertida y perturbadora. Su protagonista, un peculiar copista judicial que trabaja en un despacho de abogados en Nueva York, decide un buen día, para sorpresa de su jefe, negarse a seguir copiando con la famosa frase «preferiría no hacerlo». Aún hoy, la motivación de Bartleby sigue siendo un exquisito misterio literario, pero la determinación y la sosegada delicadeza con la que se atreve a decir «no» hará que pase a la posteridad como un hombre que eligió la libertad. Herman Melville creó así un personaje paradigmático que influyó notablemente en autores posteriores y que se ha convertido en referente en la historia de la literatura.

    Bartleby, the Scrivener is an incredibly moving story. It offers a perfect blend of fun and desolation. This classic's main character is a peculiar, overachieving clerk, working in a NY law firm. One day, to the surprise of his boss, he decides he no longer wants to keep working hard, and utters the now famous "I prefer not to." Today, Bartleby's reasoning continues to be a mystery. By responding to his superior with an emphatic "no," Bartleby was labeled a bold man that chose freedom. Herman Melville created this enigmatic character that continues to influence writers and literary genres of all scopes.
