?Con un estilo ameno y riguroso, la autora se remonta al pasado para mostrarnos el progreso de la investigación científica a lo largo de la historia, hasta llegar a la actualidad.? (Blog Me gustan los libros) ?No sólo condimenta el texto con curiosidades y anécdotas de lo más llamativas (ideales para soltar entre amigos y quedar como el más interesante de la reunión) sino que concluye cada capítulo con una pequeña guía cinematográfica que repasa las películas más trascendentes donde las ramas tratadas son de alguna manera protagonistas.? (Blogs Grupo Joly) ?Aunque la variedad de materias que domina la autora es enorme y no habría bastado una sola obra para contenerlas a todas, ella se ha ajustado al principio de lo bueno si breve dos veces bueno y ha sabido condensar lo fundamental de cada ciencia forense para escribir un libro ameno que se lee con verdadera fruición.? (Web Anika entre libros) Los criminales aprenden con cada uno de sus actos así que la renovación de la policía y las nuevas tecnologías son fundamentales para que no estemos a merced de los depredadores. La ciencia contra el crimen expone los distintos avances que se han hecho en la criminología a lo largo de la historia, entendiendo esta como la ciencia que estudia quién y cómo ha cometido el crimen. Parte con los juicios de Dios medievales en donde era la intervención divina la que dirimía los casos y nos muestra la revolución que se da en Francia en el S. XIX donde Vidocq, un antiguo ladrón, emplearía la lógica y la ciencia para resolver los caso, desde ahí, una auténtica revolución: la dactiloscopia, la balística, la toxicología, la antropología forense, las pruebas de ADN o la entomología forense se han incorporado a las investigaciones y aparecen detalladas en los capítulos de este libro, en el que también se contextualizan mostrando los casos en los que estas ciencias han ayudado a la resolución del crimen. Janire Rámila ha escrito un libro ameno, sucinto, exacto y muy completo de todo el universo que rodea a una investigación. Conoceremos los artilugios usados por los investigadores, los distintos tipos de criminología que existen y los campos que se coordinan en una investigación criminal que es, sin duda, un trabajo interdisciplinar. Pero no quiere la autora que la profundización en la ciencia hurte al libro el componente humano del trabajo de un criminólogo, los hombres que trabajan para mejorar las técnicas, como el Dr. Bill Bass y su granja de cadáveres; los hombre que se meten en la mente de los asesinos desde las pruebas encontradas en las escenas del crimen, los antropólogos, entomólogos y toxicólogos forenses y, por supuesto, las víctimas que dependen de las investigaciones para paliar su dolor. Razones para comprar la obra: - El libro da a conocer las modernas técnicas de investigación criminal junto a otras clásicas, pero las enseña siempre en su contexto, usadas como parte fundamental del descubrimiento de un criminal. - Enseña todo el proceso de investigación que sigue la policía desde que se descubre un cuerpo sin vida hasta que se halla al asesino y muestra que las investigaciones no siempre son rápidas y exactas. - Al describir los casos podemos ver cómo es la mente de un criminal y conoceremos así a los criminales más astutos, apasionantes y complejos de la historia de la humanidad. - El proceso de investigación detallado nos pone en la piel de las víctimas y en la de los policías implicados porque bajo la ciencia y la tecnología se esconden dramáticas historias humanas. Una obra que muestra todo el proceso de investigación reconociendo que los criminales mejoran, pero que no existe el crimen perfecto sino las investigaciones imperfectas y que es necesario que la ley y la ciencia avancen de la mano.

"Gabriel García Márquez meets Umberto Eco meets Jorge Luis Borges for a sprawling magic show." --The New York Times Book Review A New York Times Bestseller Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love. “ Anyone who enjoys novels that are scary, erotic, touching, tragic and thrilling should rush right out to the nearest bookstore and pick up The Shadow of the Wind. Really, you should.” --Michael Dirda, The Washington Post "Wonderous... masterful... The Shadow of the Wind is ultimately a love letter to literature, intended for readers as passionate about storytelling as its young hero." --Entertainment Weekly (Editor's Choice) "One gorgeous read." --Stephen King From the Trade Paperback edition.

Miyamoto Musashi's Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings,is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Chanakya's Arthashastra. The five "books" refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.

The book traces how Hildegart’s conception, life and early death can be mapped in uncanny manner onto the rise, organization and decline of the Sexual Reform movement in Spain. Conceived deliberately in 1914 as a ‘eugenic’ child (at a date when writing on eugenics was well under way in both England and Spain), Hildegart received her early education from her mother who in her turn had received her own from her father’s library, rich in works of utopian socialism. Subsequently and formally, Hildegart’s education through the 1920s coincided with a period in Spain when writing on eugenics and sex reform became particularly intense. It encompassed both law and medicine (favoured disciplines for those involved in the sex reform movement), and her teens provided a social education within the meetings and publications of the Campaña Sanitaria of Navarro Fernández in the 1920s. Hildegart’s own rise to a position of prominence in the world of eugenics and sex reform undoubtedly relates to her concentrated and impressive publishing activity from 1930 onwards, at a time when writings of others involved in sex reform equally reached heightened activity. The coming of the Second Republic in 1931 further facilitated this publishing activity, and made possible the organization of the Spanish chapter of the WLSR in Spain (the Liga Mundial Para la Reforma Sexual) in March 1932 with Gregorio Marañón as its President, and the youthful Hildegart (age 17) as its Secretary. The Liga gathered together the groupings of hygienists, eugenicists, lawyers and educational reformers who were already part of a wider international scene, and who had been promoting ideas of eugenics and sexual reform in Spain for some time, and particularly through the 1920s. Little more than a year after the Liga was founded Hildegart was killed by her mother, Aurora Rodríguez. It is hard to assert that this shocking event caused the death of the Liga. Nonetheless the movement in Spain seems not to have survived in coherent manner beyond 1933, although individual members continued to be active in various ways. More widely through Europe the WLSR lasted through the 1930s, although its continuity through other organizations until a later date is still insufficiently researched. In the background to the activity leading up to the founding of the Liga there is Hildegart’s correspondence with Havelock Ellis. She wrote to him to seek his advice on setting it up. The correspondence was far more than a simple request for advice, and it lasted until Hildegart’s death. It includes her record of the foundation meeting of the Liga with details of discussion of the ten planks of belief of the WLSR, and reveals the inbuilt power-struggles between professional factions in the organisation. Both the foundation document and the letters require careful interpretation. The foundation document reveals dissension within the Liga at the same time as it shows Hildegart’s energetic efforts to assert her own position within it. The letters themselves tell us much about Spanish sexual politics. But at the same time, and even more strikingly, they are full of Hildegart’s character: her style moves between business-like discussion, an endearing and ingenuous flirtatious manner, distress, and even paranoia. Above all the letters reveal a side of this youthful sexual reformer never documented elsewhere, and their extraordinary discursive nature encapsulates the paradoxes and conflicts in Spain at the time relating to thoughts on sexuality and reform. The correspondence with Ellis is moreover a text with a dramatic subtext, in that it allows us to glimpse in poignant and dramatic detail the personal tensions and anxieties in the life of this young woman who was to be murdered by her mother. The letters also testify to Hildegart’s strong and touching attachment to Ellis as mentor in the setting up of the Liga and, more personally, as a father-figure. The correspondence thus provides a unique window onto a movement and an individual both full of complexity and provide pointers the links between ideas and sexuality in England and the way such ideas were explored in Spain.
