Il Sole è il corpo celeste più importante per l'uomo e per la scienza. Stranamente, è anche tra i meno conosciuti. Posto ad appena 150 milioni di chilometri dalla Terra, con un volume che potrebbe contenere un milione e trecentomila pianeti come il nostro, è anche la stella che possiamo studiare meglio e che meglio può aiutarci a comprendere alcuni meccanismi fondamentali dell'universo e dello stesso microcosmo atomico. In queste pagine Piero Bianucci, uno dei più noti divulgatori scientifici italiani, ricostruisce duemila anni di studi solari.
Dalle osservazioni degli antichi Egizi alle ultime ricerche sul mistero dei neutrini. Fino alle soglie del Duemila. Fino alla sonda "Ulisse" che l'Agenzia spaziale europea ha lanciato per spiarne i segreti.
The town of Wyse, set precisely on the border of England and Wales, is remarkable for one thing: it is the only remaining human town where magic works. When twelve-year-old Ava and her brother return to their birthplace of Wyse, they discovers that their once magical town has been losing its charms under the control of Lord Skinner. Uncovering a working magic mirror, Ava opens an unauthorized link to the twinned town of Unwyse, where she meets Howell, one of the unlucky Fair Folk who is being pursued by the terrifying Mr Bones. Discovering that they are the joint guardians of a grumpy old book that can tell the future, the new friends are unexpectedly launched headlong into an adventure to uncover the mysterious link between Mr Bones and Lord Skinner, and to find out what's happening to the waning magic that connects their two worlds.

A revelatory account of Tony Blair’s tumultuous leadership, The Blair Years gathers extracts from the diaries of the man who knew him best: Alastair Campbell—Blair’s spokesman from 1994 to 2003, his press secretary, strategist, and closest confidant. It is a compelling chronicle of contemporary British politics and the rise of New Labour, providing the first important record of a remarkable decade in Britain’s history. Here are the defining events of the time, from the Labour Party’s new dawn to the war on terror; from the death of Princess Diana to negotiations for peace in Northern Ireland; from Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq to the Hutton Inquiry of 2003, the year Campbell resigned his position. Here also are Blair’s relationships with world leaders and heads of state, including presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
But above all, here is Tony Blair up close and personal, making the decisions that affected the lives of millions, under relent and frequently hostile pressure. Often described as the second most powerful figure in Britain, Alastair Campbell is no stranger to controversy. Feared and admired in equal measure, hated by some, he was pivotal to the founding of New Labour and the sensational election victory of 1997. Campbell spent more waking hours alongside the prime minister than anyone, and his diaries—at times brutally frank, often funny, always engrossing—take the reader right to the heart of government. The Blair Years is a story of politics in the raw, of progress and setback, of reputations made and destroyed, under the relent scrutiny of a 24-hour media. Unflinchingly told, it covers the crises and scandals, the rows and resignations, the ups and downs at No. 10 Downing Street. But amid the landmark events are insights and observations that make this a remarkably human portrayal of some of the most influential people in the world. A completely riveting book about life at the very top, told by a man who saw it all.
Истинно благородные рыцари идут в крестовые походы, остальные предпочитают блистать на турнирах. Слава турнирного бойца всегда сияла неизмеримо ярче подвигов защитников Отечества. На турнирах можно обрести имя, богатство, невест из высших сфер, получить места ближе к трону. Однако сэру Ричарду позарез нужна победа именно в большом Каталаунском турнире. Не ради ценного приза.
