Chile contra la confederación : la guerra en provincias : 1836-1839
Serrano del Pozo, Gonzalo, author
Santiago de Chile : UAI, Universidad Adolfo Ibañez, 2017
Introducción -- Chile antes de la guerra -- 1836: Los albores de la guerra -- 1837: El inicio del conflicto, el motín de Quilota y el tratado de Paucarpata -- 1838: La expedición del ejército restaurador -- 1839: La Victoria en Yungay y las celebraciones en provincia -- Conclusiones.
"A diferencia de lo ocurrido con la Guerra de Pacífico, la bibliografía sobre la Guerra contra la Confederación Perd-Boliviana no ha sido tan generosa. Además, como es natural, se ha concentrado en los aspectos propiamente bélicos del conflicto. Ante esta situación, diversos historiadores han buscado dar un giro historiográfico, que permita ir más allá de los relatos decimonónicos al respecto. Una de las nuevas aristas de investigación es analizar este conflicto desde una perspectiva regional. En este contexto, Gonzalo Serrano del Pozo busca en esta obra estudiar la situación interna del Gobierno en la capital y su relación con el resto de las provincias antes de la guerra; reconocer los circuitos económicos entre Santiago y las provincias; determinar las implicancias positivas y negativas que podia tener el proyecto Confederado para el resto del pais, además de Santiago; comprender la situación al sur del Bio-Bio, la importancia que tenia para el Gobierno y la similitud con la situación de Buenos Aires; estudiarhas manifestaciones ante las acciones del Gobierno contra la Confederación Perü-Boiiviana antes de la declaración de guerra en las diferentes zonas; indagar el origen geográfico, social y económico de la tropa que fue reclutada por el gobierno para ambas expediciones; investigar el impacto que tuvo en las principales ciudades del pais la expedición de Manuel Blanco Encalada y Manuel Bulnes en términos de preparación, planificación y apoyo; y, por filtimo, examinar las distintas expresiones luego de conocerse la victoria del Ejército Expedicionario en las provincias."--Page 4 of cover.

The politics of postmemory : violence and victimhood in contemporary Argentine culture
Maguire, Geoffrey, author
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, 
The second generation in contemporary Argentina -- The copyright generation : historical memory and the children of the disappeared -- 'HIJOS de una misma historia' : identity politics and parody in the Kirchner era -- Hijos guerrilleros : childhood militancy and cinematic memory -- Performing loss : materiality and the repertoire of absence -- The politics of postmemory.
This volume examines recent examples of Argentine literature, film, theatre and visual art from the children of the disappeared. By exploring their creative narration of childhood memories and the controversial use of parody, humour and fantasy, Maguire considers how this post-dictatorship generation are increasingly looking towards the past in order to disrupt the politics of the present. More broadly, this interdisciplinary study also scrutinizes the relevance of postmemory in a Latin American context, arguing that the politics of local Argentine memory practices must be taken actively into account if such a theoretical framework is to remain a productive and appropriate analytical lens. The Politics of Postmemory thus engages critically with theories of cultural memory in the Argentine, Latin American and global contexts, resulting in a timely and innovative text that will be of significant interest to students and scholars in the fields of, among others, cultural studies, film studies, critical theory and trauma studies.--

The year Canadians lost their minds and found their country : the Centennial of 1967
Hawthorn, Tom, author
Madeira Park, BC : Douglas & McIntyre, 
"Richly illustrated with period photographs and ephemera, here is the story of that fun, exciting year, told in the same giddy spirit with which Canadians celebrated. Uncover the strange and unique ways that individual Canadians marked the occasion, the birth of traditions, and the moment when Canadians discovered who they were and got a hint about who they were to become in this modern age. Once hewers of wood and pliers of water, they discovered a talent for literature, for design, for athletics, for innovation. And above all, it was a party never to be forgotten. Fifty years later, Canadians are once again celebrating a major milestone in their history, and once again, things are starting off with a collective yawn. Will the national spirit once again burst into flame? It could--if Canadians take a cue from the unlikely, inspiring story of The Year Canadians Lost Their Minds and Found Their Country."--

Victor and Evie : British aristocrats in wartime Rideau Hall
Phillips, Dorothy Anne, 1938- author
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press, 
Canada beckons -- Getting settled in the colony -- Maintaining imperial standards -- Honours : the first conflict -- The blossoming of Lady Maud -- Summer adventures, 1917 -- Crises of state -- A most notable wedding -- Travels from coast to coast -- A troubled winter, 1918 -- Honours : the "unmitigated nuisance" returns -- Blue sea lake and other summer pleasures, 1918 -- Influenza, armistice, and aftermath -- Parliament rejects British hereditary honours... Again -- Evie in England, 1919 -- The Winnipeg General Strike -- The duty and pleasure of summer 1919 -- The Prince of Wales, and other peacetime pleasures -- Dorothy and Harold -- The end of an era.
"In the middle of the Great War, Victor Cavendish, the ninth Duke of Devonshire, and his wife Lady Evelyn landed in Halifax in November 1916 so he could serve as the governor general of Canada. Throughout the difficult years of the First World War and its aftermath, the new governor general travelled extensively, oversaw policy, presided over Canada's rejection of the British honours system, and walked a fine line between the colonial authorities and Canada's desire for greater independence. Meanwhile, the duchess managed their home at Rideau Hall and fretted over propriety between her daughters and the young male staff who lived with them. In Victor and Evie, Dorothy Anne Phillips provides an intimate portrait of a family at the centre of Canadian social and political life. Based on personal letters released in 2005, the correspondence of an aide-de-camp, the duke's diary, and other primary documents, Phillips constructs a detailed inquiry into the family's relationships with each other and with the prominent people they met. This volume details their reactions to a number of dramatic events, including the conscription crisis, the Halifax Explosion, the influenza epidemic, the Winnipeg General Strike, the Prince of Wales's tour across Canada, and the courtship of their daughter Dorothy by the young Harold Macmillan, the future British prime minister. An engaging account of politics, travel, love, and tragedy, Victor and Evie presents the life of a governor general and his family during a pivotal moment in early twentieth century Canada."--

The Kelloggs : the battling brothers of Battle Creek
Markel, Howard, author
New York : Pantheon Books, 
Introduction : The Cain and Abel of America's heartland -- Part I. "Michigan fever". "Go west, young man" -- The chosen one -- New brooms sweep clean -- Long-distance learning -- Part II. An empire of wellness. Building the San -- "What's more American than corn flakes?" -- "Fire!" ... and cease-fire -- The new San -- Part III. Manufacturing health. The San's operations -- A "university of health" -- Will's place -- Part IV. Battles of old age. The prison of resentment -- The doctor's crusade against race degeneracy -- A full plate -- "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown" -- The final score.
"John Harvey Kellogg was one of America's most beloved physicians; a best-selling author, lecturer, and health-magazine publisher; founder of the Battle Creek Sanitarium; and patron saint of the pursuit of wellness. His youngest brother, Will, was the founder of the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company, which revolutionized the mass production of food and what we eat for breakfast. In The Kelloggs, Howard Markel tells the sweeping saga of these two extraordinary men, whose lifelong competition and enmity toward one another changed America's notion of health and wellness from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries, and who helped change the course of American medicine, nutrition, wellness, and diet. The Kelloggs were of Puritan stock, a family that came to the shores of New England in the mid-seventeenth century, went west to the wooded Michigan frontier to start a farm that became one of the biggest in the county, and then renounced it all for the religious calling of Ellen Harmon White, a self-proclaimed prophetess, and James White, whose new Seventh-day Adventist theology was based on Christian principles and sound body, mind, and hygiene rules--Ellen called it "health reform." The Whites groomed the young John Kellogg for a central role in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and sent him to America's finest medical school, Bellevue Hospital Medical College. Kellogg's main medical focus--and America's number one malady: indigestion. Markel gives us the life and times of the Kellogg brothers of Battle Creek: Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and his world-famous Battle Creek Sanitarium medical center, spa, and grand hotel attracted thousands actively pursuing health and well-being. Among the guests: Mary Todd Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Booker T. Washington, Johnny Weissmuller, Dale Carnegie, Sojourner Truth, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and George Bernard Shaw. And the presidents he advised: Taft, Harding, Hoover, and Roosevelt, with first lady Eleanor. The brothers Kellogg experimented on malt, wheat, and corn meal, and, tinkering with special ovens and toasting devices, came up with a ready-to-eat, easily digested cereal they called Corn Flakes. As Markel chronicles the Kelloggs' fascinating, Magnificent Ambersons-like ascent into the pantheon of American industrialists, we see the vast changes in American social mores that took shape in diet, health, medicine, philanthropy, and food manufacturing during seven decades--changing the lives of millions and helping to shape our industrial age."--Jacket.

Baltimore : a political history
Crenson, Matthew A., 1943- author
Baltimore : Johns Hopkins University Press, 2017
Official town, improvised authority -- Settling -- Government in the streets -- Revolution -- Chartered city, nest of pirates -- Baltimore at war -- From town to city -- "Calamities peculiarly incident to large cities" -- Trial by combat -- Baltimore triumphant -- Public debt and internal improvements -- Working on the railroad -- Road hogs -- Creating order -- Racial borders -- Between mobs and corporations -- Pigs and politicians -- Know nothings -- American reckoning -- Baltimore in the divided nation -- City at war -- Democratic resurrection -- Ex-slaves, ex-Confederates, and the new regime -- The ring -- Fin de siecle -- Political economy -- Fire, smoke, and segregation -- Metropolitan morality -- World war and municipal conquest -- Civil service and Prohibition -- Boom to bust -- Relief, repeal, new deal -- Democratic harmony, Republican victory -- D'Alesandro and his Democrats -- I'm alright jack -- Slow motion race riot -- Racial breakdown -- Baltimore's best -- Driving the city -- Turning point -- Afterword: Not yet history.
"People from Baltimore glory in its quirky charm, small-town character, and history of North-cum-South culture. Not every native, however, realizes that for much of the nineteenth century, as "mobtown," the city often made its case for being one of the most violent places in the country. Since the death of Freddie Gray in police custody last year, Baltimoreans and the entire nation again focus on the rich and tangled narrative of black-white relations in the city, which once offered an example of slavery existing side by side with the largest community of free blacks in the United States. A distinguished political scientist who spent much of his youth and the large part of his professional career in Baltimore here examines the politics, structure of governance, and role of racial difference in the history of Baltimore, from its founding in the mid-eighteenth century to the recent past. How do we explain its distinctive character? Matt Crenson argues that the city's longtime dependency on the general assembly for a wide variety of urban necessities--the by-charter weakness of its municipal authority--forced residents to adopt the private and extra-governmental institutions that shaped early Baltimore--leading to curious political quarrels over loose pigs, for example, but also to Baltimore's comparative radicalism during the Revolution. Meantime, whites competed with blacks, slave and free, for menial and low-skill work, and an urban elite found a way to thrive by avoiding, wherever possible, questions of slavery vs. freedom, just as, long after Civil War and emancipation, it preferred to sidestep racial controversy. Crenson thus holds up a mirror to Baltimore, asking whites in particular to re-examine the past and accept due responsibility for future racial progress."--Provided by publisher.

Asian Canadian Studies reader
edited by Roland Sintos Coloma and Gordon Pon
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, 
Encountering Asian Canada -- Ethnic Encounters -- Intersectional encounters -- Comparative encounters -- Transnational encounters -- After encounters.
"Roland Sintos Coloma and Gordon Pon's Asian Canadian Studies Reader brings together essential writings by leading and emerging scholars in the field to explore the vibrancy of the diverse Asian diaspora in Canada. The Reader is the perfect textbook for undergraduate courses in Race and Ethnic Studies and the Sociology of Migration. The volume is organized into four main themes: ethnic, intersectional, comparative, and transnational encounters. It critically engages topics regarding orientalism, settler colonialism, globalization, and nationalism. Each groundbreaking essay challenges our conventional understandings of diversity and multiculturalism by tackling the intricacies of racism and racialization. By capturing the rich diversity within Asian Canadian communities, Coloma and Pon dispel the perceptions of Asians as always immigrants, newcomers, or model minorities. The Asian Canadian Studies Reader is the first interdisciplinary collection of essays intended for undergraduate use about Canada's largest racialized minority group."--

Willoughbyland : England's Lost Colony
Parker, Matthew, author
New York : Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press, 2017
Foreword: Suriname River, 2014 -- Every Man's Longing -- El Dorado -- Ralegh and the Beautiful Empire of Guiana -- The Heirs of Ralegh -- Ralegh's Last Voyage -- Francis Lord Willoughby -- A Brave Land -- A Peculiar Form of Government -- The Restoration : A Tumbling and Rolling World -- Repression and Revolt -- Aphra Behn, Agent 160 -- Sugar, Slavery and Oroonoko -- The Return of Willoughby -- War and Ruin -- Astrea and Celadon -- The Fall of Fort Willoughby -- Victory and Anguish -- Postscript.
"At the beginning of the 1650s, wrecked by plague and civil war, England was in ruins. Yet shimmering on the horizon was a vision of paradise called Willoughbyland. When Sir Walter Raleigh set out to South America to find the legendary city of El Dorado, he paved the way for an endless series of adventurers who would struggle against the harsh reality of South America's wild jungles. Six decades later, when a group of English gentlemen expelled from England chose to establish a new colony there, they named the settlement in honor of its founder--Sir Francis Willoughby. Located in the lush landscape between the Amazon and Orinoco rivers, in what is now Suriname, Willougbyland experienced one of colonialism's most spectacular rises. But as planters and traders followed explorers, and mercenaries and soldiers followed political dissidents, the one-time paradise became a place of terror and cruelty, of sugar and slavery. A microcosm of the history of empire, this is the hitherto untold story of that fateful colony"--Provided by publisher.

Inka history in knots : reading khipus as primary sources
Urton, Gary, 1946- author
Austin, TX : University of Texas Press, 2017
Part I. Background. What can we learn about the Inkas from study of the khipus? -- A brief introduction to Tawantinsuyu : the Inka empire -- Part II. Reading khipus in social, political, and religious registers. Cord notes for describing an Inka-era village on the southern coast of Peru -- The ancestors' calendar : Laguna de los Cóndores, Chachapoyas, northern Peru -- Constructing the records of the Palace of Puruchuco, Lima Valley -- Accounting for the Oracle : record keeping at Pachacamac, Lurín Valley -- The iconography of inebriation : engraved and sculpted khipu bars -- Part III. Imperial accounting. What did the ceque khipus look like? -- Accounting in the king's storehouse : Inkawasi, southern coast of Peru -- Counting heads in Tawantinsuyu -- Part IV. Colonial khipus. Accounting for demographic collapse? -- Khipus from a colonial "revisit" to the Santa Valley : the "rosetta khipu"? -- Part V. Summary and conclusions. Structure and history in the khipus -- Appendix. A khipu inventory.
Inka khipus--spun and plied cords that record information through intricate patterns of knots and colors--constitute the only available primary sources on the Inka empire not mediated by the hands, minds, and motives of the conquering Europeans. As such, they offer direct insight into the worldview of the Inka--a view that differs from European thought as much as khipus differ from alphabetic writing, which the Inka did not possess. Scholars have spent decades attempting to decipher the Inka khipus, and Gary Urton has become the world's leading authority on these artifacts. In Inka History in Knots, Urton marshals a lifetime of study to offer a grand overview of the types of quantative information recorded in khipus and to show how these records can be used as primary sources for an Inka history of the empire that focuses on statistics, demography, and the "longue duree" social processes that characterize a civilization continuously adapting to and exploiting its environment. Whether the Inka khipu keepers were registering census data, recording tribute, or performing many other administrative tasks, Urton asserts that they were key players in the organization and control of subject populations throughout the empire and that khipu record-keeping vitally contributed to the emergence of political complexity in the Andes. This new view of the importance of khipus promises to fundamentally reorient our understanding of the development of the Inka state and the possibilities for writing its history.

Cuba : a cultural history
West, Alan, 1953- author
London : Reaktion Books, 2017
Cuba is a rare and fascinating place. In a world where revolutionary socialism seems an almost quaint reminder of the Cold War, the island remains one of the few nations on the planet guided by a Communist party, still committed to fighting imperialism, opposed to the injustices of globalization and wedded to the dream of one day building a classless society, albeit in a distant future. But Cuba is more than a struggling socialist country: it is a nation with a complex and turbulent history and a rich and varied culture. This book is neither simply a timeline narrative of Cuban history nor a traditional history of Cuban culture. Instead, it invites the reader to enter Cuban history from the perspective of the island's uniquely creative cultural forms. As it does so, it traces that restless island as it ebbs and flows with the power, beauty and longings of its culture and history. All those who have visited this captivating place, or been inspired by its history and culture, should read this fascinating account.

The Lowells of Massachusetts : an American family
Sankovitch, Nina, author
New York : St. Martin's Press, 
Prelude : Writing a family's history -- Migration -- Religion -- Revolution -- Acquisition -- War -- Reinvention.
"The Lowells of Massachusetts were a remarkable family. They were settlers in the New World in the 1600s, revolutionaries creating a new nation in the 1700s, merchants and manufacturers building prosperity in the 1800s, and scientists and artists flourishing in the 1900s. For the first time, Nina Sankovitch tells the story of this fascinating and powerful dynasty in The Lowells of Massachusetts. Though not without scoundrels and certainly no strangers to controversy, the family boasted some of the most astonishing individuals in America's history: Percival Lowle, the patriarch who arrived in America in the seventeenth to plant the roots of the family tree; Reverend John Lowell, the preacher; Judge John Lowell, a member of the Continental Congress; Francis Cabot Lowell, manufacturer and, some say, founder of the Industrial Revolution in the US; James Russell Lowell, American Romantic poet; Lawrence Lowell, one of Harvard's longest-serving and most controversial presidents; and Amy Lowell, the twentieth century poet who lived openly in a Boston Marriage with the actress Ada Dwyer Russell. The Lowells realized the promise of America as the land of opportunity by uniting Puritan values of hard work, community service, and individual responsibility with a deep-seated optimism that became a well-known family trait. Long before the Kennedys put their stamp on Massachusetts, the Lowells claimed the bedrock."--Provided by publisher.

"In 1968, Canadians took a chance on a new kind of politician. Pierre Trudeau became the leader of the Liberal Party and within two months was prime minister of Canada. His meteoric rise to power was driven by Trudeaumania, a phenomenon that generated the same media hype, sexual sizzle, and adoring crowds as Beatlemania. This book examines the origins, dynamics, and enduring significance of Trudeaumania, attributing it to the rise 1960s radicalism, nationalist aspirations, and modern mass media. Far from being a sixties crazy moment, it was an exercise in national identity formation that would define the values of Canadians for decades to come."--

Forgotten continent : a history of the new Latin America
Reid, Michael, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 
"Ten years after its first publication, Michael Reid's best-selling survey of the state of contemporary Latin America has been wholly updated to reflect the new realities of the "Forgotten Continent." The former Americas editor for the Economist, Reid suggests that much of Central and South America, though less poor, less unequal, and better educated than before, faces harder economic times now that the commodities boom of the 2000s is over. His revised, in-depth account of the region reveals dynamic societies more concerned about corruption and climate change, the uncertainties of a Donald Trump-led United States, and a political cycle that, in many cases, is turning from left-wing populism to center-right governments. This essential new edition provides important insights into the sweeping changes that have occurred in Latin America in recent years and indicates priorities for the future"--Amazon.com.

I hear my people singing : voices of African American Princeton
Watterson, Kathryn, 1942- author
Princeton, New Jersey : Princeton University Press, 
"I Hear My People Singing shines a light on a small but historic black neighborhood at the heart of one of the most elite and world-renowned Ivy-League towns--Princeton, New Jersey. The vivid first-person accounts of more than fifty black residents detail aspects of their lives throughout the twentieth century. Their stories show that the roots of Princeton's African American community are as deeply intertwined with the town and university as they are with the history of the United States, the legacies of slavery, and the nation's current conversations on race. Drawn from an oral history collaboration with residents of the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood, Princeton undergraduates, and their professor, Kathryn Watterson, neighbors speak candidly about Jim Crow segregation, the consequences of school integration, World Wars I and II, and the struggles for equal opportunities and civil rights. Despite three centuries of legal and economic obstacles, African American residents have created a flourishing, ethical, and humane neighborhood in which to raise their children, care for the sick and elderly, worship, stand their ground, and celebrate life. Abundantly filled with photographs, I Hear My People Singing personalizes the injustices faced by generations of black Princetonians--including the famed Paul Robeson--and highlights the community's remarkable achievements. The introductions to each chapter provide historical context, as does the book's foreword by noted scholar, theologian, and activist Cornel West. An intimate testament of the black community's resilience and ingenuity, I Hear My People Singing adds a never-before-compiled account of poignant black experience to an American narrative that needs to be heard now more than ever."--

Borderwall as architecture : a manifesto for the U.S.-Mexico boundary
Rael, Ronald, 1971- author
[Oakland, CA] : University of California Press, 
"Borderwall as Architecture is an account of the barrier that divides the United States of America from the United States of Mexico. It is an historical account, a protest against the wall, and a projection about its future through a series of propositions that suggest that the wall in its conception is an opportunity for economic and social development along the border. The book makes this case by taking readers on a conceptual journey along a wall that cuts through a "third nation"--The Divided States of America. Along this journey the transformative effects of the wall on people, animals and the natural and built landscape are exposed and called into question through the story of people, who on both sides of the border, transform the wall--giving it new meaning by challenging its very existence in remarkably creative ways. Coupled with these real-life accounts are unsolicited counter proposals for the wall, that re-imagine, hyperbolize, or question the wall and its construction, cost, performance and its meaning. These proposals work from the proposition that despite the intended use of the wall to keep people out and away, the wall is instead an attractor, engaging both sides in a common dialogue."--Provided by publisher.

This book is recommended for scholars interested in historic and public archeology, applied anthropology, American and African American history, and race studies"--Publisher description.

The book edited by researchers Thomas Calvo and Paulina Machuca - both members of the project "Proyecto Vencer la distancia" (Overcoming the distance) - comprises the participation of fourteen specialists in the discipline of social sciences. "If the Philippines and Mexico had had very close relationships in the two and a half centuries that the Manila Galleon was sailing (1565-1815), the relations diluted when Mexico chose Independence and the Philippines continued under Spanish domain until 1898. It was precisely these years of disagreement that we were interested in: like all the periods of intermediation and reflux, they are moments of maturity and reflection, which always have heuristic virtues.' --Page 37.

"From the dawn of Spain's venture into the New World until the end of its colonial regime, Spanish America was gripped by an almost innate need to process, categorize, and label human differences in an effort to manage its vast empire. Whether it was conquistadors seeking to establish grades of difference between themselves and native rulers, or simple artisans striving to distinguish themselves from their peers, people paid careful attention to what others looked like, how they lived, what they wore, and how they behaved. Over time, rules were created to contain transgressions. The wearing of costumes and masks outside of sanctioned events and holidays was soundly discouraged, lest disguises lead to crimes, immorality, and mistaken identities. People who lived as others could be labeled criminals, and those who moved across color boundaries to enjoy privileges not associated with their caste did so at their own risk and peril. When legislation failed to control behavior, social pressure impelled obedience and conformity"--Provided by publisher.
