Death penalty: A cruel and inhuman punishment is an academic contribution by Academics for abolition aimed at fostering the debate launched by the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution 62/149 on 18 December 2007, calling for a worldwide moratorium on executions by 2015, and continued by the upcoming review process of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG). It is mainly a compilation of papers written by the speakers at the Seminar “Against cruel and inhuman punishment and death penalty”, which took place at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, in Madrid, on 9 June 2013, on the eve of the 5th World Congress against the death penalty. The book deals with current issues of the process towards abolition as the lack of evidence about the deterrence effect of death penalty and its consideration as a cruel and inhuman punishment. Together with the editors, the contribution includes studies, among others, of H.J. Albrecht, Gabrio Forti, Roger Hood, Salim Himnat and Sergio García Ramírez. The Academic International Network against the Death Penalty (REPECAP) dedicates this book to the International Commission against the Death Penalty (ICDP) chaired by Federico Mayor Zaragoza.

Arias sung and loved by the greatest singers of the world are here in fresh, new versions. This edition: draws on original manuscripts and historical first editions, along with recent research of prominent musicologists, to meet a high standard of accuracy and authenticity; enhances your enjoyment of the arias with fascinating background information about their original appearance in cantatas and operas, and about their composers; corrects hundreds of errors -- even incorrect words, notes and composers' names -- which have accumulated as past publishers copied from each others' editions; removes Romantic era misinterpretations and 19th-century piano accompaniments, restoring the clear, bright sound of Baroque music. It will be easier than ever to learn the arias because the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet symbols removes doubts about correct pronunciation. It will be easier to sing the arias with meaning because the original Italian texts are translated into English in three ways: 1. a singable rhymed translation 2. a readable prose translation and 3. a literal translation of each single Italian word for those who are learning the language. - Back cover.
