Historia mundial de la megalomanía: Desmesuras, desvaríos y by Pedro Aguirre

By Pedro Aguirre


A lo largo de estas páginas desfilan excéntricos megalómanos henchidos de vanidad. Con una mezcla precisa de anécdotas, trazos biográficos y datos sorprendentes, el autor cuenta sus historias y muestra cómo detrás de l. a. idolatría hay una absurda pretensión de dominio, grandeza e inmortalidad: elementos intrínsecos a las cruentas ideologías totalitarias que han causado terror a escala global.

De ese modo, el libro se adentra en las vidas de aquellos dictadores que fueron cegados por los angeles petulancia de creerse superhombres providenciales llamados a cumplir grandes hazañas. Aunque aún no se hayan encontrado bases sólidas que expliquen dicho fenómeno, los síntomas resultan evidentes: soberbia, egolatría, verborragia, alejamiento progresivo dela realidad o indiferencia ante el sufrimiento
de los otros.

Historia mundial de los angeles megalomanía, obra única en su tipo, constituye una invitación al lector a profundizar en los oscuros laberintos del alma humana así como en las excentricidades de numerosos personajes que han perseguido lo imposible: volverse dioses.
