En árabe «Ahlam» significa «los sueños». ¿Puede el amor sobrevivir a la oscuridad del fanatismo? Una luminosa historia romántica marcada por el odio. Cuando el famoso pintor francés Paul Arezzo llega a los Querquenes en el año 2000, el archipiélago tunecino es un idílico refugio para quienes buscan paz y belleza. Una vez instalado en la llamada Casa del Mar, Paul entabla una estrecha amistad con la familia de un pescador local, Farhat, pero sobre todo con su hijo Issam y su hija Ahlam, ambos con extraordinarias dotes para la música y la pintura. Diez años después el mundo ha cambiado, el radicalismo islámico se extiende y los problemas alcanzan a este paraíso perdido. Mientras el fanatismo gana terreno a la razón, Issam parece alejarse cada vez más y la relación de Paul y Ahlam cambia para siempre. Pero ¿seguirá existiendo en la pequeña isla un lugar para el arte y el amor? Ahlam ha sido galardonada con el Premio Maison de la Presse 2016 y finalista del Premio RTL Lire. Reseñas: «A medida que el ritmo se vuelve trepidante en la última parte del libro, las páginas van pasando más y más deprisa hasta el magnífico final.» Metro «Impulsado por una escritura sensual, Ahlam es también una oda a la belleza del arte.» Livres Hebdo «Trévidic, un juez amante del rock and roll y experto en antiterrorismo, publica una primera novela sorprendente.» Le Point «Un apasionante relato de una juventud tunecina que se debate entre el Islam radical y el progreso, y que prueba que la ficción puede ser tan potente como la no ficción para contar la realidad.» Lire «Como en una novela policíaca, quedamos atrapados en un engranaje implacable.» Télérama «En su primera novela, Trévidic aborda la cuestión del fanatismo. Armado con su experiencia, describe los mecanismos del adoctrinamiento para conocer mejor cómo erradicarlo.» Le Soir

Archaeoastronomy and the Maya illustrates archaeoastronomical approaches to ancient Mayan cultural production. The book is contextualized through a history of archaeoastronomical investigations into Mayan sites, originating in the 19th century discovery of astronomical tables within hieroglyphic books. Early 20th century archaeological excavations revealed inscriptions carved into stone that also preserved astronomical records, along with architecture that was built to reflect astronomical orientations. These materials provided the basis of a growing professionalized archaeoastronomy, blossoming in the 1970s and expanding into recent years. The chapters here exemplify the advances made in the field during the early 21st century as well as the on-going diversity of approaches, presenting new perspectives and discoveries in ancient Mayan astronomy that result from recent studies of architectural alignments, codices, epigraphy, iconography, ethnography, and calendrics. More than just investigations of esoteric ancient sciences, studies of ancient Mayan astronomy have profoundly aided our understanding of Mayan worldviews. Concepts of time and space, meanings encoded in religious art, intentions underlying architectural alignments, and even methods of political legitimization are all illuminated through the study of Mayan astronomy.

Between 1985 and 2008, female suicide bombers committed more than 230 attacks—about a quarter of all such acts. Women have become the ideal stealth weapon for terrorist groups. They are less likely to be suspected or searched and as a result have been used to strike at the heart of coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. This alarming tactic has been highly effective, garnering extra media attention and helping to recruit more numbers to the terrorists' cause. Yet, as Mia Bloom explains in Bombshell: Women and Terrorism, female involvement in terrorism is not confined to suicide bombing and not limited to the Middle East. From Northern Ireland to Sri Lanka, women have been engaged in all manner of terrorist activities, from generating propaganda to blowing up targets. What drives women to participate in terrorist activities? Bloom—a scholar of both international studies and women's studies—blends scrupulous research with psychological insight to unearth affecting stories from women who were formerly terrorists. She moves beyond gender stereotypes to examine the conditions that really influence female violence, arguing that while women terrorists can be just as bloodthirsty as their male counterparts, their motivations tend to be more intricate and multilayered. Through compelling case studies she demonstrates that though some of these women volunteer as martyrs, many more have been coerced by physical threats or other means of social control. As evidenced by the March 2011 release of Al Qaeda's magazine Al Shamikha, dubbed the jihadi Cosmo, it is clear that women are the future of even the most conservative terrorist organizations. Bombshell is a groundbreaking book that reveals the inner workings of a shocking, unfamiliar world.
