From the poet, novelist, and cultural icon behind the award-winning and celebrated Broadway play, for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf, comes an evocative and moving bilingual collection of new and beloved poems. In this stirring collection of more than sixty original and selected poems in both English and Spanish, Ntozake Shange shares her utterly unique, unapologetic, and deeply emotional writing that has made her one of the most iconic literary figures of our time. With a clear, raw, and affecting voice, Shange draws from her experience as a feminist black woman in American to craft groundbreaking poetry about pain, beauty, and color. In the bestselling tradition of Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey, Wild Beauty is more than a poetry collection; it is an exquisite call to action for a new generation of women, people of color, feminists, and activists to follow in the author’s footsteps in the pursuit of equality and understanding. As The New York Times raves, “Ntozake Shange writes with such exquisite care and beauty that anyone can relate to her message.”

"The days of the pure whites, the victors of today, are as numbered as were the days of their predecessors. Having fulfilled their destiny of mechanizing the world, they themselves have set, without knowing it, the basis for the new period: The period of the fusion and the mixing of all peoples." -- from The Cosmic Race In this influential 1925 essay, presented here in Spanish and English, José Vasconcelos predicted the coming of a new age, the Aesthetic Era, in which joy, love, fantasy, and creativity would prevail over the rationalism he saw as dominating the present age. In this new age, marriages would no longer be dictated by necessity or convenience, but by love and beauty; ethnic obstacles, already in the process of being broken down, especially in Latin America, would disappear altogether, giving birth to a fully mixed race, a "cosmic race," in which all the better qualities of each race would persist by the natural selection of love. "This bilingual edition of The Cosmic Race by José Vasconcelos gives the reader a clear and concise introduction to contents that have caused much critical controversy. Didier T. Jaén places this essay in perspective, discussing theories relevant to Vasconcelos's thought... [and] also provides an historical context for Vasconcelos's evolving ideas." -- Hispania

Este libro explica en gran detalle y claridad excepcional los asuntos relacionados con el rapto de la Iglesia, el gobierno del Anticristo, la "gran tribulacin", y todos los juicios apocalpticos que Dios derramara sobre el mundo, en los ltimos das. Creemos que el rapto de la Iglesia causara el colapso de las instituciones econmicas, polticas y religiosas a travs de todo el mundo. En ese momento, la humanidad buscara un lder capaz de salvar el mundo, y de ofrecerles paz y seguridad a las gentes. De manera que por aclamacin popular, el mundo le dar la bienvenida a un falso principe que la Biblia llama el Anticristo. Este hombre inspirara las masas, dicindoles lo que ellos quieren or. El Anticristo empujara la humanidad a los niveles ms bajos de degradacin, vicios, inmoralidad, crimen y rebelin abierta contra Dios. El corromper el orden social y moral y como resultado, billones de personas morirn. El hundir la humanidad en oscuridad espiritual y la guiara derecho la perdicin. No nos podemos ni siquiera imaginar el horror y el sufrimiento sin fin que la humanidad experimentara a travs del caos que el Anticristo creara en la Tierra. La Biblia dice que el imperio del Anticristo "devorara, trillara y despedazara" toda la Tierra (Daniel 7:23b VRV). Con respecto a este periodo de sufrimiento humano, el Seor Jess dijo: "Porque aquellos das sern de tribulacin cual nunca ha habido desde el principio de la creacin que Dios creo, hasta este tiempo, ni la habr" (Marcos 13:19 VRV). La "gran tribulacin" ser un periodo caracterizado por guerra, hambre y desastres naturales a gran escala, esparcidos por toda la Tierra. La Biblia dice que 25 y 33 por ciento de la poblacin mundial morir durante ese periodo como resultado de dos eventos globales. Si esos eventos ocurrieran en nuestro tiempo, 3.56 billones de la poblacin del mundo, morira.
