Dr. Luis Martínez-Fernández to give an eye-opening talk on our changing world and signing books this Friday, the 23rd at Books and Books Coral Gables
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - June 21, 2023 - PRLog -- The release of the enlightening historical non-fiction book from Florida-based, award-winning, world-renowned historian and bestselling author Dr. Luis Martínez-Fernández, "When The World Turned Upside Down: Politics and Culture and The Unimaginable Events of 2019-2022" (Peter Lang, International Academic Publishers, February 2023), will be celebrated on June 23rd, from 7-8 pm at Books & Books (Coral Gables) with an in-store event. Books will be for sale and signed by the author at the event.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This book invites readers to a dialogue between the past, present, and future. From the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, through the wave of social upheaval following the killing of George Floyd, climate change-induced catastrophic floods, droughts, and other forms of extreme weather, the January 6th attempted coup at the US Capitol. Through Putin's brutal invasion of Ukraine and much more, the world has indeed been turned upside down. The book examines how almost every aspect of life has been profoundly affected, from economics, politics, and geopolitics to society, culture, and the changing climate. Dr. Luis Martínez-Fernández skillfully examines these events from the intersection of opinion journalism, chronicling, and historical analysis. This rare combination of methods and perspectives offers readers unique insights on various subjects.
"In 'When the World Turned Upside Down,' Luis Martínez-Fernández demonstrates that he is not 'merely' an acclaimed historian but an engaging, sharp-witted social commentator. This excellent collection of columns, written during and about what Martínez-Fernández rightly terms 'the unimaginable events of 2019-2022,' is dazzling for his easy, readable blend of history, sociology, popular culture, politics, and more," said Jeff Robbins, Boston Herald, and Creators Syndicate.
