Item description for Cuando America completo la tierra: Version inedita (Villegas Historia series) by German Arciniegas...

Much has been written about the European influence on America, though very little has been written about the reverse. Colombian educator and diplomat Germn Arciniegas worked his entire life to disclose the contributions of the New World to the Western culture: the progress of science, philosophy, and the modern word, among others. Every event and anecdote presented in this book links America to Europe, defending the notion that America completed cultural life on earth.
Mucho se ha escrito sobre la influencia de Europa en Amrica. poco, en cambio, se ha dicho en sentido contrario. en esta obra, el gran americanista colombiano, quien trabaj toda su vida en rescatar y divulgar los aportes del nuevo mundo a la llamada cultura occidental, plantea la otra cara del argumento. La proyeccin de Amrica en Europa, su papel en la evolucin del planeta, desde el momento mismo en que con su descubrimiento la tierra se completa, el sol cambia de sitio y el universo, como un todo, se expande. En un impresionante despliegue de humor y coherencia, cada suceso expuesto en este libro se vincula inexorablemente con la tesis central como prueba de su acertada enunciacin.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cuando America completo la tierra: Version inedita (Villegas Historia series)?

Artículos inconexos  Mar 18, 2008
Parece como si los editores hubiesen reunido uina serie de artículos sobre la historia de America escritos por Arciniegas y los hubiesen unido en este libro. Hay una secuencia cronólogica pero los contenidos en ocasiones son repetidos. Basicamente se tocan catorce puntos y aunque hay algo de narración histórica mas bien son opiniones y pareceres lo que se expresa.

Puede leerlo como se lee una revista, puede comenzar por la mitad o el final, igual. Aun asi es ameno en la mayoría de sus partes.
