  • Resumen: Further to the first book, Writers of the Spanish Civil War: The Testimony of Their Auto/Biographies (2011)which featured the writings on the war (1936–39) of six key British and American authors: Gerald Brenan, Robert Graves, Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Stephen Spender and Laurie Lee, this new work studies the actions in the war of those physically involved and writings focused on the war, either at the time or later, by eight more foreign authors: Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, Franz Borkenau, V. S. Pritchett, André Malraux, Arthur Koestler, Martha Gellhorn and Peter Kemp. In addition to comparing their autobiographies with what their biographers said, in order to show up any discrepancies, as had been done in the first book, here, the texts are scrutinized to detect use of stereotypes or adaptation of the material to other purposes in the writing. New perspectives are introduced now in that two of the authors are women, one writing from a distance but deeply affected by the war (Virginia Woolf) and one active in journalism on the spot (Martha Gellhorn), and our final author, Peter Kemp, went to Spain to fight on the side of the Nationalists under Franco as opposed to the Republicans.

  • Resumen: English Grammar in Focus. The Phrase provides a detailed study of the phrase, traditionally considered as intermediate between the word and the clause in the hierarchy of grammatical units.  The book introduces the general features of this unit and then discusses each of the major endocentric and exocentric phrases. The approach is mostly descriptive and theory-neutral but alternative analyses of problematic aspects are occasionally presented and innovative views developed by the authors of the different chapters are offered as a contribution to the on-going discussion of specific aspects of this much-debated grammatical unit.This is the third of the four volumes that comprise the series English Grammar in Focus, a collection of handbooks that is aimed to familiarise university students with the essentials of English grammatical description. Although each volume can be used as a self-contained coursebook, the series as a whole is intended to serve as a comprehensive introduction to all levels of grammatical description, from the morpheme as the smallest constituent of grammar, to complex textual units.
