Summary

This book tells us several stories, which have a real basis and are embedded in the determining elements of life: love, affection, the desire for liberation and change, acceptance, the struggle for life and the need to understand desire, sexuality…
It seems a lot for a single book, but there are books capable of going beyond simple storytelling and contain a baggage of knowledge that helps us reflect.
Three souls for a heart (My polygamy) is, therefore, a very important book that can also captivate us. And it does, not only for what it is said, but also for how the writer does it. For the original way of transferring the stories of his characters, his four main characters: Melba, Zulema, Aysha and Santiago Nvé, as well as a fifth character, the journalist Rita Maldonado, who is a transcript of the author herself and that carries the narrative thread of the book. A book that, in addition to discovering the world of polygamy, gets us excited. Is there anything more beautiful than emotion and thought blending together? Three souls for one heart does it for you.
And it does it from a liberating point of view. Because every human being, and even more women these days, struggle to occupy their space; claiming their role in the world.
“Is there a single type of love or several types? Is love a feeling or also a cultural element? I believe that love participates in both dimensions. And that is why it is so varied and we cannot generalize. That is why there are different forms of relationship and social organization of love relationships, depending on the cultures and the place in the world where they were born”.
Three souls for a heart (My polygamy) is an exciting and peculiar story of three women and one man, different in their culture and education, but all with a common denominator: they want to understand, they want to love. And something that adds even more importance to the extraordinary literary and sociological value of this wonderful book: the real characters behind its pages have the courage to let us discover their experiences and thoughts so that we all learn to look deeply into tolerance in the back of our souls: That which all human beings who share the incredible adventure of living have.

    A Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist’s groundbreaking account of the crime that shocked New York City—and the world In the early hours of March 13, 1964, twenty-eight-year-old Catherine “Kitty” Genovese was stabbed to death in the middle-class neighborhood of Kew Gardens, Queens. The attack lasted for more than a half hour—enough time for Genovese’s assailant to move his car and change hats before returning to rape and kill her just a few steps from her front door.   Yet it was not the brutality of the murder that made it international news. It was a chilling detail Police Commissioner Michael Joseph Murphy shared with A. M. Rosenthal of the New York Times: Thirty-eight of Genovese’s neighbors witnessed the assault—and none called for help.   To Rosenthal, who had recently returned to New York after spending a decade overseas and would become the Times’s longest-serving executive editor, that startling statistic spoke volumes about both the turbulence of the 1960s and the enduring mysteries of human nature. His impassioned coverage of the case sparked a firestorm of public indignation and led to the development of the psychological theory known as the “bystander effect.”  Thirty-Eight Witnesses is indispensable reading for students of journalism and anyone seeking to learn about one of the most infamous crimes of the twentieth century.

    Timothy Snyder opens a new path in the understanding of modern nationalism and twentieth-century socialism by presenting the often overlooked life of Kazimierz Kelles-Krauz, an important Polish thinker at the beginning of the twentieth century.During his brief life in Poland, Paris, and Vienna, Kelles-Krauz influenced or infuriated most of the leaders of the various socialist movements of Central Europe and France. His central ideas ultimately were not accepted by the socialist mainstream at the time of his death. However, a century later, we see that they anticipated late twentieth-century understanding on the importance of nationalism as a social force and the parameters of socialism in political theory and praxis.Kelles-Krauz was one of the only theoreticians of his age to advocate Jewish national rights as being equivalent to, for example, Polish national rights, and he correctly saw the struggle for national sovereignty as being central to future events in Europe. This was the first major monograph in English devoted to Kelles-Krauz.
