The destruction of the indigenous peoples of Hispano America : a genocidal encounter
Ginzberg, Eitan, author
Eastbourne ; Sussex Academic Press, 2018
Introduction -- 1. America and the Native Americans: On the Eve of a Tragic Encounter -- 2. Spaniards and Indianos at the Onset of the Conquest -- 3. The Discovery and Conquest of America -- 4. The Conquest: A Strategy of Cruelty and Destruction -- 5. Institutions of Subjugation and Acculturation -- 6. Debating the Appropriate Treatment of Native Americans (1511-1539) -- 7. Debating the Appropriate Treatment of Native Americans (1542-1585) -- 8. Unintended Calamity or Genocidal Encounter? What did Actually Happen in Sixteenth-Century Hispano-America? -- Epilogue: Lessons about Genocide and the Destruction of Culture.

The Spanish did not originally intend to harm the Hispanic-American natives. The Spanish Crown, Councils and Church considered the natives free and rational vassals entitled to be embraced by Christianity and by the Hispanic culture. However, at the same time it was the monarchy's decision to exploit the natives as taxpayers and as a reservoir of forced labor. That decision made its rule in America exceptionally destructive. The recruitment of the natives to serve the interests of the Spanish Empire under what can only be considered near to slavery conditions, compounded by systematic annihilation of their cultures as well as by cyclical epidemics, led to the near total eradication of the Indians. This book narrates the story of the Spanish conquest and the widespread violations against the Hispanic-American natives. The author ponders on the question why the Spanish Crown and the Church failed to apply the necessary measures to effectively protect the natives, particularly during the first years of the conquest, when exploitation practices were gradually formed and implemented. The author further enquires how exploitation on this scake was made possible despite a constant flow of reports emphasizing the clear and present danger to the very survival of the natives and the profound debates, led by the most prominent intellectuals of the time, challenging these practices. Based upon primary sources and current research on the relationship between colonialism and genocide, this book examines whether the Spanish actions can be defined as genocidal. What lies at the heart of the issue is whether the wide range of exploitative acts implies ministerial responsibility of the Crown and its Councils in Spain and their agents in America, or whether the destruction of the native population resulted from unplanned and unforeseen circumstances, making it impossible to place the blame on specific persons or institutions--back cover.

The fire of the jaguar
Turner, Terence, author
Chicago, Illinois : Hau Books, [2017]
Editor's introduction: or why myth matters / Jane Fajans. Foreword: at long last / David Graeber. Part 1 The fire of the jaguar: the Kayapo myth of the origin of cooking fire : General problems and methodological issues -- The myth -- The social setting -- Cultural associations of the symbolic elements in the myth -- The structure of the myth -- The macaw and jaguar episodes -- The final pair of episodes -- Conclusions. Part 2 Later articles : Beauty and the beast: the fearful symmetry of the jaguar and other natural beings in Kayapo ritual and myth (the 2011 R.R. Marett Lecture) -- Cosmology, objectification, and animism in indigenous Amazonia -- The crisis of late structuralism.

Not since Clifford Geertz's "Deep Play: Notes on the Balinese Cockfight" has the publication of an anthropological analysis been as eagerly awaited as this book. Turner's reanalysis of the famous myth from the Kayapo people of Brazil was anticipated as an exemplar of a new, dynamic, materialist, action-oriented structuralism, one very different from the kind made famous by Claude Lévi-Strauss. But the study never fully materialized. Now, with this volume, it has arrived, bringing with it powerful new insights that challenge the way we think about structuralism, its legacy, and the reasons we have moved away from it. In these chapters, Turner carries out one of the richest and most sustained analysis of a single myth ever conducted. Turner places the "Fire of the Jaguar" myth in the full context of Kayapo society and culture and shows how it became both an origin tale and model for the work of socialization, which is the primary form of productive labor in Kayapo society. A posthumous tribute to Turner's theoretical erudition, ethnographic rigor, and respect for Amazonian indigenous lifeworlds, this book brings this fascinating Kayapo myth alive for new generations of anthropologists. Accompanied with some of Turner's related pieces on Kayapo cosmology, this book is at once a richly literary work and an illuminating meditation on the process of creativity itself.

The injustice never leaves you : anti-Mexican violence in Texas
Martinez, Monica Munoz, 1984- author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Divine retribution -- From silence -- Denial of justice -- Cultures of violence -- Idols -- Reckoning.

The Injustice Never Leaves You documents a little known period of state violence in the early twentieth century that targeted ethnic Mexican residents in the Texas-Mexico borderlands. This book takes on the task of explaining why violence occurred, what it meant at the time, and what it means today. It examines a policing regime that killed with impunity between 1910 and 1920. Politicians, historians, the media, and historical commissions of the early twentieth century inscribed a celebratory version of events in newspapers, books, lesson plans, museums, and monuments as a practice of nation building. They disavowed the loss and trauma experienced by residents. The architects of official history and memory, however, did not account for the witnesses and survivors of violence who would pass their own memories from one generation to another. They underestimated residents who would stake a claim in the border region, residents who would share their story with the next generation, residents who would leave records that documented the terror that shaped daily life. More than an act of recovery, this book gives insight into people who lived in a world shaped by violence but who refused to be consumed by it.--

Brazil : a biography
Schwarcz, Lilia Moritz, author
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2018
Introduction : "Brazil is just nearby" -- First came the name, and then the land called Brazil -- The sugar civilization : bitter for the many, sweet for a few -- Tit for tat : slavery and the naturalization of violence -- Gold! -- Revolt, conspiracy and sedition in the tropical paradise -- Ship ahoy! a court at sea -- Dom João and his court in the tropics -- The father leaves, the son remains -- Independence habemus : instability in the First empire -- Regencies, or the sound of silence -- The second reign : at last, a nation in the tropics -- The end of the monarchy in Brazil -- The first republic : the people take to the streets -- Samba, malandragem, authoritarianism : the birth of modern Brazil -- Yes, we have democracy! -- The 1950s and 1960s : bossa- nova, democracy and underdevelopment -- On a knife edge : dictatorship, opposition and resistance -- On the path to democracy : the transition to civilian power and the ambiguities and legacy of the military dictatorship -- Conclusion : history is not arithmetic.

For many Americans, Brazil is a land of contradictions: vast natural resources and entrenched corruption; extraordinary wealth and grinding poverty; beautiful beaches and violence-torn favelas. Brazil occupies a vivid place in the American imagination, and yet it remains largely unknown. In an extraordinary journey that spans five hundred years, from European colonization to the 2016 Summer Olympics, Lilia M. Schwarcz and Heloisa M. Starling's Brazil offers a rich, dramatic history of this complex country. The authors not only reconstruct the epic story of the nation but follow the shifting byways of food, art, and popular culture; the plights of minorities; and the ups and downs of economic cycles. Drawing on a range of original scholarship in history, anthropology, political science, and economics, Schwarcz and Starling reveal a long process of unfinished social, political, and economic progress and struggle, a story in which the troubled legacy of the mixing of races and postcolonial political dysfunction persist to this day.

Juan Bosch : para estudiar política en República Dominicana

"Al leer las páginas que siguen a esta presentación, el resultado que se obtiene es una convicción: no se puede hacer ninguna práctica política transformadora en República Dominicana sin acudir al estudio de estos textos, su discusión y reflexión profunda. Para ese propósito escribió Juan Bosch cada uno de estos materiales. Como parte de la Colección ±Estudios Sociales); como trabajos para el periódico y la revista del partido (primero el PRD y luego el PLD); o bien como artículos sueltos, Bosch siempre estuvo formulando en ellos una teoría para ser estudiada y transformada en herramienta de una política concreta, siempre revolucionaria. Con el fin de superar su dispersión y de reunirlos en un solo volumen, hemos tomado aquellos textos que se usaron en los conocidos ±Círculos de Estudios¬ y otros preparados por Bosch para la formación política, y los hemos compilado aquí siguiendo un orden que pueda ser atendido allí donde este material se utilice para fines de divulgación y estudio."--from back cover.

Edges, fringes, frontiers : integral ecology, indigenous knowledge and sustainability in Guyana
Henfrey, Thomas, author
New York : Berghahn Books, 2018
Edges -- Edges, fringes, frontiers -- Integral theory and integral ecology -- Integral ecology and ecological anthropology -- Steps to an integral ecological anthropology -- Babylon and the 'crisis of modernity' -- Finges -- Overview of Wapishana settlement & subsistence -- A plural reality -- Panarchy in the deep South -- Composite epistemology in Wapishana subsistence -- An integral ecology of Wapishana subsistence -- Frontiers -- Traditional and Babylon ecologies -- Cultural edges and frontiers.

Based on an ethnographic account of subsistence use of Amazonian forests by Wapishana people in Guyana, Edges, Frontiers, Fringes examines the social, cultural and behavioral bases for sustainability and resilience in indigenous resource use. Developing an original framework for holistic analysis, it demonstrates that flexible interplay among multiple modes of environmental understanding and decision-making allows the Wapishana to navigate social-ecological complexity successfully in ways that reconcile short-term material needs with long-term maintenance and enhancement of the resource base.

The fall of Wisconsin : the conservative conquest of a progressive bastion and the future of American politics
Kaufman, Dan, 1970- author
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, [2018]
The people's home -- Divide and conquer -- The last deer on earth -- The model for the country -- Worker against worker -- The seventh fire -- Which shall rule, wealth or man?.

"The untold story behind the most shocking political upheaval in the country. For more than a century, Wisconsin has been known nationwide for its progressive ideas and government. It famously served as a 'laboratory of democracy,' a cradle of the labor and environmental movements, and birthplace of the Wisconsin Idea, which championed expertise in the service of the common good. But following a Republican sweep of the state's government in 2010, Wisconsin's political heritage was overturned, and the state went Republican for the first time in three decades in the 2016 presidential election, elevating Donald J. Trump to the presidency. The Fall of Wisconsin is a deeply reported, searing account of how the state's progressive tradition was undone and turned into a model for national conservatives bent on remaking the country. Dan Kaufman, a Wisconsin native who has been covering the story for several years, traces the history of progressivism that made Wisconsin so widely admired, from the work of celebrated politicians like Robert 'Fighting Bob' La Follette and Gaylord Nelson, to local traditions like Milwaukee's 'sewer socialism,' to the conservationist ideas of Aldo Leopold and the state's Native American tribes. Kaufman reveals how the 'divide-and-conquer' strategy of Governor Scott Walker and his allies pitted Wisconsin's citizens against one another so powerful corporations and wealthy donors could effectively take control of state government. As a result, laws protecting voting rights, labor unions, the environment, and public education were rapidly dismantled. Neither sentimental nor despairing, Kaufman also chronicles the remarkable efforts of citizens who are fighting to reclaim Wisconsin's progressive legacy against tremendous odds: Chris Taylor, a Democratic assemblywoman exposing the national conservative infrastructure; Mike Wiggins, the head of a Chippewa tribe battling an out-of-state mining company; and Randy Bryce, the ironworker whose long-shot challenge to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has galvanized national resistance to Trump."--Provided by publisher.

Offers a chronology of the United States occupation of Haiti from 1915 to 1934. The occupation began on July 28, 1915, when 330 U.S. Marines landed at Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on the authority of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson. The July intervention took place following the murder of dictatorial President Vilbrun Guillaume Sam by insurgents angered by the political executions of members of the elite opposition. The occupation ended on August 1, 1934, under President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The American West and the world : transnational and comparative perspectives
Lahti, Janne, author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2019
Shared worlds -- Settler revolutions -- Violence -- Intimacies of empires -- Imperial eyes.

"The American West and the World provides a synthetic introduction to the transnational history of the American West. Drawing from the insights of recent scholarship, Janne Lahti recenters the history of the U.S. West in the global contexts of empires and settler colonialism, discussing exploration, expansion, migration,violence, intimacies, and ideas. Lahti discusses both established subfields of Western scholarship, such as borderlands studies and transnational histories of empire, as well as relatively unexplored connections between the West and geographically nonadjacent spaces. Lucid and incisive, The American West and the World firmly situates the historical West in its proper global context"--

1619 : Jamestown and the forging of American democracy
Horn, James P. P., author
New York : Basic Books, 2018
Jamestown -- The great reforms -- First Africans -- Commonwealth -- Tumult and liberty -- Inequality and freedom.

"1619 offers a new interpretation of the significance of Jamestown in the long trajectory of American history. Jamestown, the cradle of American democracy, also saw the birth of our nation's greatest challenge: the corrosive legacy of slavery and racism that have deepened and entrenched stark inequalities in our society. After running Jamestown under martial law from 1610-1616, the Virginia Company turned toward representative government in an effort to provide settlers with more control over their own affairs and more incentive to invest further in the colony. In late July 1619, the newly-formed General Assembly gathered to introduce "just Laws for the happy guiding and governing of the people." It was the first legislature in America, and history has cast it as the foundation of American freedom and democracy. From that moment on, propertied white colonists became accustomed to freedoms that would have been unthinkable in England. But those very freedoms also permitted the wholesale and largely unchecked exploitation of poor white laborers and non-European peoples. More than nine-tenths of all those arriving in Virginia at this time were brought in some form of servitude or labor contract. This is a pattern we recognize all too well in modern American society-opportunities are not shared, inequality is rampant, racism is systemic. We would like to think these are problems that can be solved by expanding representative democracy; Jamestown teaches us, instead, that these are problems have long been created and encouraged by American democracy. Casting a skeptical eye on deeply-cherished myths, 1619 will be essential reading for anyone struggling to understand the paradox of American freedom."--Provided by publisher.

Pottery ethnoarchaeology in the Michoacán Sierra
Shott, Michael J. author
Salt Lake City : The University of Utah Press, [2018]
The burden of ceramics -- Ceramic assemblages and archaeological inference -- The Michoacán study area -- Data collection -- Data analysis : contextual factors -- Use life and vessel size -- Michoacán data in cross-cultural perspective -- Pottery quantification and the Michoacán discard assemblage -- Conclusions.

"Although most ceramic studies describe vessel production and use, the causes and rates of pottery discard are often neglected in archaeological studies. Michael Shott presents analytical methods for determining pottery use life and demonstrates why use life should not be overlooked. Over a five-year period Shott inventoried the household pottery of about twenty-five homes in five towns in Michoacán, Mexico, recording age and types of use. He also looked at a subsample on a monthly basis over two years to estimate the magnitude of early vessel failure that would go unnoticed in an annual census. His analysis of about 900 vessels clearly shows that context does not explain use life, but vessel size does. Bigger pots last longer. Consulting other ethnoarchaeological sources for comparison and cross-cultural perspectives, Shott shows that his results can be applied to other archaeological data sets for determining numbers of original whole vessels as well as site occupation span."--Provided by publisher.
