Summary

Le memorie di Sherlock Holmes (Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes) (1894) è una raccolta dei racconti, editi originariamente sullo Strand Magazine, scritti da Arthur Conan Doyle e con protagonista il suo personaggio più famoso, Sherlock Holmes. La si può considerare, e non a torto, una raccolta memorabile. Vi sono infatti all'interno dei racconti alcuni fatti notevoli di un certo interesse. Innanzitutto i due racconti La faccia gialla e Il cerimoniale dei Musgrave sono casi atipici, in cui nonostante alcuni errori e incertezze di Holmes, la verità, alla fine, viene a galla. Inoltre ne Il trattato navale, vengono citati altri due casi del detective: L'avventura della seconda macchia e L'avventura di Black Peter pubblicati ne Il ritorno di Sherlock Holmes. I due racconti Il mistero della Gloria Scott e Il cerimoniale dei Musgrave hanno come protagonista un Holmes giovane ancora alle prime armi, che risolve alcuni casi in cui sono stati coinvolti suoi vecchi compagni di scuola. È poi lo stesso Holmes a raccontare a Watson queste sue avventure in modo che le trascriva insieme agli altri racconti in cui entrambi compaiono come protagonisti. Fa poi la sua prima apparizione Mycroft Holmes, fratello maggiore di Sherlock, nel racconto L'avventura dell'interprete greco. Il vero capolavoro, però, è L'ultima avventura, in cui tutti piangono la morte dell'infallibile Holmes.

    'Excellent ... an astounding amount of material.'
     
    Times Educational Supplement 
     
     
    Popular culture often portrays the Holocaust as a
     
    horrific drama played out between Nazi executioners and ghetto Jewish victims -
     
    in short, a single aberration of history. 
     
     
    Introducing
     
    the Holocaust is a powerful graphic guide that dissolves this
     
    stereotype, explaining the causes and its relevance today. It places the
     
    Holocaust where it belongs - at the centre of modern European and world
     
    history. 
     
     
    Haim Bresheeth and Stuart Hood - along with Litza
     
    Jansz's outstanding illustrations - bring a unique and unforgettable perspective
     
    to how we think about this most dark of shadows on human history.

    A comic-book introduction to economics from David Orrell, the author of Economyths: 11 Ways Economics Gets it Wrong. With illustrations from Borin Van Loon. Part of the internationally-recognised Introducing Graphic Guide series.
    
    
    Today, it seems, all things are measured by economists. The so-called 'dismal science' has never been more popular - or, given its failure to predict or prevent the recent financial crisis, more controversial.
    
    
    But what are the findings of economics? Is it really a science? And how can it help our lives?
    
    
    Introducing Economics traces the history of the subject from the ancient Greeks to the present day. Orrell and Van Loon bring to life the contributions of great economists - such as Adam Smith, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman - and delve into ideas from new areas such as ecological and complexity economics that are revolutionizing the field.
