By Bertha von Suttner
"¡Abajo las armas!" es los angeles biografía de ficción de una mujer a quien los angeles guerra le ha arrebatado dos maridos. Un relato naturalista de las campañas bélicas de 1859, 1864, 1866 y 1870/1871. Una implacable descripción de los horrores y odios, cuando no injusticias, que provocan los conflictos armados. Bertha von Suttner pone de relieve l. a. angustia de las mujeres cuyos maridos e hijos perdían l. a. vida o quedaban mutilados en el campo de batalla. Pero también cuestiona a una sociedad que considera virtudes positivas el coraje combativo y el orgullo de ser soldado; también a los Estados que periódicamente lanzan a los angeles Humanidad a un baño de sangre bajo pretextos como l. a. dignidad, el patriotismo o l. a. propia defensa.

Why they later undertook the hard and perilous crossing of the mountains into Eriador is no longer certain. Their own accounts speak of the multiplying of Men in the land, and of a shadow that fell on the forest, so that it became darkened and its new name was Mirkwood. Before the crossing of the mountains the Hobbits had already become divided into three somewhat different breeds: Harfoots, Stoors, and Fallohides. The Harfoots were browner of skin, smaller, and shorter, and they were beardless and bootless; their hands and feet were neat and nimble; and they preferred highlands and hillsides.
The Hobbits named it the Shire, as the region of the authority of their Thain, and a district of well-ordered business; and there in that pleasant corner of the world they plied their well-ordered business of living, and they heeded less and less the world outside where dark things moved, until they came to think that peace and plenty were the rule in Middle-earth and the right of all sensible folk. They forgot or ignored what little they had ever known of the Guardians, and of the labours of those that made possible the long peace of the Shire.

In other matters they were, as a rule, generous and not greedy, but contented and moderate, so that estates, farms, workshops, and small trades tended to remain unchanged for generations. There remained, of course, the ancient tradition concerning the high king at Fornost, or Norbury as they called it, away north of the Shire. But there had been no king for nearly a thousand years, and even the ruins of Kings’ Norbury were covered with grass.
