$34.95
More Info
A portal to the ancient hieroglyphic script of the Aztec Empire.

For more than three millennia the cultures of Mesoamerica flourished, yielding the first cities of the Western Hemisphere and developing writing systems that could rival those of the East in their creativity and efficiency. The Nahuatl-speaking Aztecs reigned over one of the greatest imperial civilizations the Americas had ever seen, and until now their intricate and visually stunning hieroglyphs have been overlooked in the story of writing. In this innovative volume Gordon Whittaker provides the reader with a step-by-step, illustrated guide to reading Aztec glyphs, as well as the historical and linguistic context needed to appreciate and understand this fascinating writing system. He also tells the story of how this enigmatic language has been deciphered and gives a tour through Aztec history as recorded in the richly illustrated hieroglyphic codices. This groundbreaking guide is essential reading for anyone interested in the Aztecs, hieroglyphs, or ancient languages.

'Captivating and perversely delightful.' The Wall Street Journal
In this gripping imagining of the last hours of President Gaddafi, Yasmina Khadra provides us with fascinating insight into the mind of one of the most complex and controversial figures of recent history.

'People say I am a megalomaniac. It is not true. I am an exceptional being, providence incarnate, envied by the gods, able to make a faith of his cause.'
October 2011. In the dying days of the Libyan civil war, Muammar Gaddafi is hiding out in his home town of Sirte along with his closest advisors. They await a convoy that will take them south, away from encroaching rebel forces and NATO aerial attacks. The mood is sombre. In what will be his final night, Gaddafi reflects on an extraordinary life, whilst still raging against the West, his fellow Arab nations and the ingratitude of the Libyan people.

Reviews
'Captivating and perversely delightful.' The Wall Street Journal
'Khadra has a good sense of pace: the leader's thoughts turn over at the right speed.' London Review of Books
'World-class' Rosie Goldsmith, The Independent
'Mesmerizing' The New Yorker
'Packs a devastating punch' Shortlist
'Compulsive, funny, powerfully emotional..sinuously intelligent. Khadra's perceptive and confident novel, translated from French by Julian Evans, is an unmissable entertainment.' Guardian
'Bold, often mischievous... A wonderfully entertaining read - as commanding and schizophrenic as the psychopath who 'speaks' its words.' The Big Issue
'Effortless first-person reimagining of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's final hours' Library Journal
'In this closed-door drama, which reads almost like a piece of theatre, Yasmina Khadra gets inside the mind of a tyrant awaiting the fatal bullet.' Le Point
'The ability of the author to infiltrate the mind and personality of Gaddafi is uncanny. It is very well written and compelling.' D.Olser, NetGalley reviewer
'A skilled storyteller working at the height of his powers.' TLS
'Khadra brings us deep into the hearts and minds of people living in unspeakable mental anguish.' L A Times
'I loved the idea of this book and it was fascinating to read about Col. Gadaffi in a fictionalised setting.' Sarah S., NetGalley reviewer
