For those looking for an overview that will help them to think at a deep level about these issues. (First Things)". Ver en Catálogo Bello

Dawkins, Richard. The God delusion. Boston; Ne York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 2006.

"In his sensational international bestseller, the preeminent scientist and putspoken atheist Richard Dawkins delivers a hard-hitting, impassioned, but humorous rebuttal of religious belief.

Lennox, John C. Gunning for God. Why the new atheists are missing the target. Oxford: A Lion Book, 2011.

"Atheism is on the march in the western world, and its enemy is God. Religion, the "New Atheists" claim, "is dangerous", it "kills" or "poisons everything". And if religion is the problem with the world. Their answer is sinple: get rid of it". Ver en Catálogo Bello

Lennox, John C. God and Stephen Hawking. Whose design is it anyway?. Oxford, England: Lion Hudson. 2011.

"This book is the latest blockbusting contribution to the "New Atheist" debate, and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of God's Undertaker, takes a closer look at Hawking's logic". Ver en Catálogo Bello

Soberg Shugart, Matthew; Martin P. Wattenberg (eds.). Mixed-member electoral systems. The best of both worlds?. Oxford: University Press, 2003.

"Mixed-member electoral systems may well be the electoral reform of the 21st century, much as proportional representation (PR) was in the 20th century. In the view of many electoral reformers, mixed-member systems offer the best of both the traditional British single-seat district system and PR systems. This book seeks to evaluate: why mixed- member systems have recently appealed to many countries with diverse electoral histories; and how well expectations for these systems have been met".

Spitzer's New Proofs for the Existence of God examines the considerable evidence for God and creation that has come to light from physics and philosophy during the last forty years. An expert in diverse areas, including theology, physics, metaphysics, and ethics, Spitzer offers in this text the most contemporary, complete, and integrated approach to rational theism currently available".

Von Mises, Ludwig. El socialismo. Análisis económico y sociológico. 6a. ed. Madrid: Unión Editorial, 2009.

"Socialismo - escribe Friedrich A. Hayek - constituye la aportación más decisiva de Ludwig von Mises. Cuando apareció por primera vex en 1922, "su impacto fue muy profundo. Alteró gradual, pero fundamentalmente, la perspectiva de toda una generación y desafió el pensamiento de muchos jóvenes idealistas". Con esta obra, ya clásica, Ludwig von Mises, en palabras de François Perroux, "ha aportado una contribución excepcional a la crítica del socialismo". Ver en Catálogo Bello
