Política y diplomacia durante el gobierno de Liberato Rojas
Duarte, Luis María, 1980-2014, author
Asunción, Paraguay : Intercontinental Editora, octubre 2016
The present work is born as a result of several articles written by the author in different occasions and circumstances. Although Luis María Duarte's premature death prevented him from successfully completing this work, the chapters were mostly culminated. He takes us to Paraguay of the early twentieth century, which was presided over by Liberato Rojas, with his men, who with their successes and follies forged modern Paraguay. In these pages, he gathers the vicissitudes of a head of state who, in a country plunged in an environment of permanent conspiracy and uprisings, must overcome all kinds of obstacles, including the diplomatic break with the regional power of the moment, Argentina, to stay in power.

The Mexican Revolution's wake : the making of a political system, 1920-1929

Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction : Mexico's search for peace and postrevolutionary political institutions -- The socialist crucible : Yucatan, 1915-1922 -- Revolutionary laboratories : the spread of socialism across the southeast, 1915-1923 -- Putting the system to the test : the de la Huerta rebellion in the southeast, 1923-4 -- A harder line : socialist Tabasco, 1920-27 -- The forgotten revolution : socialist Chiapas, 1924-7 -- Closing ranks : socialism and anti-reelectionism, 1925-27 -- A nation of parties -- Conclusion : hard lessons.

"In the first weeks of 1924, in a region that many said had been left out of the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920, a small army was formed by Socialists in the state of Chiapas, in far southeastern Mexico. Most of its members were likely coffee workers and poor farmers. These men did not take up arms against an oppressive, elite-led federal government as so many Mexicans had done during the Revolution. Instead, they organized and armed themselves to defend the federal government and local political institutions that they had helped to build. When Mexico's first postrevolutionary government came under attack during the de la Huerta rebellion of 1923-4, southeastern Socialists rose up in the government's defense and in defense of their rights that they believed it could best guarantee"--

Authoritarianism, cultural history and political resistance in Latin America : exposing Paraguay
Frederico Pous, Alejandro Quin, Marcelino Viera, editors
Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, [2018]
"This book takes on the challenge of conceptually thinking Paraguayan cultural history within the broader field of Latin American studies. It presents original contributions to the study of Paraguayan culture froma variety of perspectives that include visual, literary, and cultural studies; gender studies, sociology, and political theory. The essays compiled here focus on the different narratives and political processes that shaped a country decentered from, but also deeply connected to, the rest of Latin America. Structured in four thematic sections, the book reflects upon authoritarianism, the tensions between modern, indigenous, and popular artistic expressions; the legacies of the Stroessner Regime, political resistance, and the struggle for collective memory; as well as the literary framing of historical trauma, particularly in connection with the Roabastian notion of la realidad que delira [delirious reality]"--page [4] of cover.

Denmark Vesey's garden : slavery and memory in the cradle of the Confederacy
Kytle, Ethan J., author
New York : The New Press, 2018
Prelude: Slavery's capital -- Part I: Emancipation and Reconstruction -- The year of jubilee -- Reconstructing Charleston in the shadow of slavery -- Part II: Jim Crow rising -- Setting Jim Crow in stone -- Cradle of the Lost Cause -- Part III: Jim Crow era -- Black memory in the Ivory City -- America's most historic city -- The sounds of slavery -- We don't go in for slave horrors -- Part IV: Civil rights era and beyond -- We shall overcome -- Segregating the past -- Conclusion: Denmark Vesey's garden -- Afterword: The saving grace of the Emanuel nine?

A book that strikes at the heart of the recent flare-ups over Confederate symbols in Charlottesville, New Orleans, and elsewhere, Denmark Vesey's Garden reveals the deep roots of these controversies and traces them to the heart of slavery in the United States: Charleston, South Carolina, where almost half of the U.S. slave population stepped onto our shores, where the first shot at Fort Sumter began the Civil War, and where Dylann Roof shot nine people at Emanuel A.M.E. Church, the congregation of Denmark Vesey, a black revolutionary who plotted a massive slave insurrection in 1822. As early as 1865, former slaveholders and their descendants began working to preserve a romanticized memory of the antebellum South. In contrast, former slaves, their descendants, and some white allies have worked to preserve an honest, unvarnished account of slavery as the cruel system it was. Examining public rituals, controversial monuments, and whitewashed historical tourism, Denmark Vesey's Garden tracks these two rival memories from the Civil War all the way to contemporary times, where two segregated tourism industries still reflect these opposing impressions of the past, exposing a hidden dimension of America's deep racial divide. Denmark Vesey's Garden joins the small bookshelf of major, paradigm-shifting new interpretations of slavery's enduring legacy in the United States. --inside jacket.

A crooked river : rustlers, rangers, and regulars on the lower Rio Grande, 1861-1877
Collins, Michael L., 1950- author
Norman : University of Oklahoma Press, [2018]
Prologue: thieves of Bagdad -- The Devil's horsemen -- Old Rip returns -- Escaping Reconstruction -- Skinning wars -- Robb's commission -- Mackenzie's Raiders -- McNelly's Rangers -- Texas Devils -- Crossing the Jordan -- Catching Hell -- Epilogue: postscripts from Purgatory.

During the turbulent years of the Civil War and Reconstruction, a squall of violence and lawlessness swept through the Nueces Strip and the Rio Grande Valley in southern Texas. Cattle rustlers, regular troops, and Texas Rangers, as well as Civil War deserters and other characters of questionable reputation, clashed with Mexicans, Germans, and Indians over unionism, race, livestock, land, and national sovereignty, among other issues. In A Crooked River, Michael L. Collins presents a rousing narrative of these events that reflects perspectives of people on both sides of the Rio Grande. Retracing a path first opened by historian Walter Prescott Webb, A Crooked River reveals parts of the tale that Webb never told. Collins brings a cross-cultural perspective to the role of the Texas Rangers in the continuing strife along the border during the late nineteenth century. He draws on many rare and obscure sources to chronicle the incidents of the period, bringing unprecedented depth and detail to such episodes as the "skinning wars," the raids on El Remolino and Las Cuevas, and the attack on Nuecestown. Along the way, he dispels many entrenched legends of Texas history--in particular, the long-held belief that almost all of the era's cattle thieves were Mexican. A balanced and thorough reevaluation, A Crooked River adds a new dimension to the history of the racial and cultural conflict that defined the border region and that still echoes today.

Empire by invitation : William Walker and Manifest Destiny in Central America
Gobat, Michel, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Introduction -- "The apple in our Eden" -- Inviting the filibusters -- "Walker is the United States" -- The colonists -- Imagined empire -- Creating a filibuster state -- The promise of development -- Filibuster revolution -- The fall -- Epilogue.

Michel Gobat traces the untold story of the rise and fall of the first U.S. overseas empire to William Walker, a believer in the nation's manifest destiny to spread its blessings not only westward but abroad as well. In the 1850s Walker and a small group of U.S. expansionists migrated to Nicaragua determined to forge a tropical "empire of liberty." His quest to free Central American masses from allegedly despotic elites initially enjoyed strong local support from liberal Nicaraguans who hoped U.S.-style democracy and progress would spread across the land. As Walker's group of "filibusters" proceeded to help Nicaraguans battle the ruling conservatives, their seizure of power electrified the U.S. public and attracted some 12,000 colonists, including moral reformers. But what began with promises of liberation devolved into a reign of terror. After two years, Walker was driven out. Nicaraguans' initial embrace of Walker complicates assumptions about U.S. imperialism. Empire by Invitation refuses to place Walker among American slaveholders who sought to extend human bondage southward. Instead, Walker and his followers, most of whom were Northerners, must be understood as liberals and democracy promoters. Their ambition was to establish a democratic state by force. Much like their successors in liberal-internationalist and neoconservative foreign policy circles a century later in Washington, D.C., Walker and his fellow imperialists inspired a global anti-U.S. backlash. Fear of a "northern colossus" precipitated a hemispheric alliance against the United States and gave birth to the idea of Latin America.--

When Montezuma met Cortés : the true story of the meeting that changed history
Restall, Matthew, 1964- author
New York, NY : Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, [2018]
Prologue: Invention -- Mysterious kindness -- No small amazement -- Social grace and monstrous ritual -- The empire in his hands -- The greatest enterprises -- Principal plunderers -- The epic boxer -- Without mercy or purpose -- Epilogue: Halls of the Montezumas -- Appendix: Language and label, cast and dynasty.

"On November 8, 1519, the Spanish conquistador Hernando Cortés first met Montezuma, the Aztec emperor, at the entrance to the capital city of Tenochtitlan. This introduction--the prelude to the Spanish seizure of Mexico City and to European colonization of the mainland of the Americas--has long been the symbol of Cortés's bold and brilliant military genius. Montezuma, on the other hand, is remembered as a coward who gave away a vast empire and touched off a wave of colonial invasions across the hemisphere. But is this really what happened? In a departure from traditional tellings, When Montezuma Met Cortés uses "the Meeting"--as Restall dubs their first encounter--as the entry point into a comprehensive reevaluation of both Cortés and Montezuma. Drawing on rare primary sources and overlooked accounts by conquistadors and Aztecs alike, Restall explores Cortés's and Montezuma's posthumous reputations, their achievements and failures, and the worlds in which they lived--leading, step by step, to a dramatic inversion of the old story. As Restall takes us through this sweeping, revisionist account of a pivotal moment in modern civilization, he calls into question our view of the history of the Americas, and, indeed, of history itself"--Jacket flap.

The political theory of Che Guevara
Llorente, Renzo Tramer, author
London : Rowman & Littlefield International Ltd., [2018]
The new human being -- The problem of work -- Internationalism and anti-imperialism -- Socialism, communism, and revolution -- Consolidating the revolution and the building of socialism -- The Guevarist legacy.

Nearly half a century after his death, Ernesto "Che" Guevara remains a compelling and controversial figure. He was an original social theorist, and many of his writings attest to an innovative interpretation of various concepts and commitments central to Marxist thought. This is one of the first works to comprehensively consider his contribution to social and political theory for a student audience. Firstly, the book provides thorough and reliable accounts of the key theses, concepts and commitments that give Che Guevara's theoretical, and political, orientation its distinctive character. It addresses Guevara's views on topics such as work, morality in socialism, egalitarianism, prefigurative politics, internationalism, and the process of "disembourgeoisement". Secondly, the study situates Guevara's ideas within the context of the Marxist theoretical tradition and, on the other hand, twentieth-century Latin American social thought. To this end, it will explore both the affinities and dissimilarities between Guevara's views on certain fundamental questions and the views represented by such figures as Marx, Lenin, Herbert Marcuse and Jose Carlos Mariategui. Finally, it will provide critical assessments of Che's key ideas, many of which remain relevant to contemporary debates in socialist theory.

The Zapatistas' dignified rage : final public speeches of Subcommander Marcos
Marcos, subcomandante, author
Chico, CA ; AK Press, [2018]
Neither the center nor the periphery (December 2007) -- National and International Caravan for Observation and Solidarity with Zapatista Communities (August 2008) -- Seven winds in the calendars and geographies of below (January 2009) -- Between light and shade (May 2014).

For over two decades, Mexico's Zapatista indigenous movement has stood as a beacon of hope for activists around the world working against economic exploitation and government oppression. Subcommander Marcos was their military leader and spokesperson, a poetic advocate who was, for many, almost indistinguishable from the movement he championed. On May 25, 2014, in the town of La Realidad, deep in the Zapatistas' heartland, Subcommander Marcos delivered a speech before thousands of supporters in which he declared that he would henceforth "cease to exist," a change that made way for the movement's indigenous members to assume a more prominent role. Readers will find that speech in The Zapatistas' Dignified Rage, along with fourteen others he gave between the end of the "Other Campaign" in 2007 and his farewell announcement in 2014. While he made fewer public appearances during this period, he simultaneously increased the depth of his analysis. Collected here in English translation for the first time, these talks include some of his most explicit, detailed, and inspiring criticisms of capitalism, political parties, vanguards, electoral democracy, gender and racial discrimination, disingenuous solidarity, and much more. While others have voiced similar criticisms, Marcos was exceptional for also being a charismatic representative and spokesperson for a globally relevant social movement made up of tens of thousands of people.

"This case study analyzes the workplace experiences of skilled worker immigrants from Hong Kong who came to Canada with the purpose of entering the workforce, and what this reveals about why a large number leave in their first year. It focuses on their reflections on the structures and processes they face and the sense they have made of their situations, looking at sensemaking processes in relation to workplace opportunities, the social context, and power relations and inequality in organizations. It draws on documents and interviews with Hong Kong Chinese immigrants to understand how these immigrants make sense of immigration in Canada and their assumptions about having a better quality of life and their ideas about racist and cultural shocks; where and how they search for cues and institutional rules about employment; and how they develop strategies of resistance and identity work. It shows that they have assumptions that the government is providing help for them to get in to the workplace and that ethnic service organizations offer positive guidance to their workplace opportunities, and considers the role of racism and resistance."--Provided by publisher.

Huaca Prieta-one the world's best-known, yet least understood, early maritime mound sites-and other Preceramic sites on the north coast of Peru bear witness to the beginnings of civilization in the Americas. Across more than fourteen millennia of human occupation, the coalescence of maritime, agricultural, and pastoral economies in the north coast settlements set in motion long-term biological and cultural transformations that led to increased social complexity and food production, and later the emergence of preindustrial states and urbanism. These developments make Huaca Prieta a site of global importance in world archaeology. This landmark volume presents the findings of a major archaeological investigation carried out at Huaca Prieta, the nearby mound Paredones, and several Preceramic domestic sites in the lower Chicama Valley between 2006 and 2013 by an interdisciplinary team of more than fifty international specialists. The book's contributors report on and analyze the extensive material records from the sites, including data on the architecture and spatial patterns; floral, faunal, and lithic remains; textiles; basketry; and more. Using this rich data, they build new models of the social, economic, and ontological practices of these early peoples, who appear to have favored cooperation and living in harmony with the environment over the accumulation of power and the development of ruling elites. This discovery adds a crucial new dimension to our understanding of emergent social complexity, cosmology, and religion in the Neolithic period.

Saving Central Park : a history and a memoir
Rogers, Elizabeth Barlow, 1936- author
New York : Alfred A. Knopf, 2018
Introduction: Implausible ideal -- Near death -- Early advocates -- Looking back -- Moving forward -- Design masterpiece -- Multiple lives -- Power player -- Learning curve -- Changing times -- Troubled waters -- Gardening days -- Going abroad -- Darker side -- Growing pains -- Two Betsys -- Money matters -- Golden age -- Saffron celebration.

"The story of how one woman's long love affair with New York's Central Park led her to a job in which she was able to organize the rescue of the park from its serious decline in the 1970s, returning it to the beautiful place of recreational opportunity and spiritual sustenance it is today. Elizabeth Barlow Rogers opens with a quick survey of her early life--a middle-class upbringing in Texas; college at Wellesley, marriage, a degree in City Planning at Yale. And then her move to New York where she has children and, when she finds being a mother and a housewife is not enough, pours herself into the protection and enhancement of the city's green spaces. Interwoven into her own story is a comprehensive history of Central Park: its design and construction as a scenic masterpiece; the alterations of each succeeding era; the addition of numerous facilities for sports and play; and finally the "anything goes phase" of the 1960s and '70s, which was often fun but almost destroyed the park. The two narratives continue to entwine as she finds a job in the administration of Central Park, founds the Central Park Conservancy, and transforms both the park and herself--a transformation that has led to her many books, to travels that have taken her to parks and gardens around the world, and has solidified the prestige of New York's most conspicuous landmark."--Provided by publisher.

Nation building -- Designing the porfiriato -- Rag of barbarism: Aztecs and Mayas in international thought (1804-1911) -- The inspector general and conservator of archaeological monuments -- Batres in the field -- Batres fought with all the world -- The grand tour: International Congress of Americanists, Mexico City, 1910.

In 'Ornamental Nationalism: Archaeology and Antiquities in Mexico, 1876-1911', Seonaid Valiant examines the Porfirian government's reworking of indigenous, particularly Aztec, images to create national symbols. She focuses in particular on the career of Mexico's first national archaeologist, Inspector General Leopoldo Batres He was a controversial figure who was accused of selling artifacts and damaging sites through professional incompetence by his enemies, but who also played a crucial role in establishing Mexican control over the nation's archaeological heritage. Exploring debates between Batres and his rivals such as the anthropologists Zelia Nuttall and Marshall Saville, Valiant reveals how Porfirian politicians reinscribed the political meaning of artifacts while social scientists, both domestic and international, struggled to establish standards for Mexican archaeology that would undermine such endeavors.

Policing black lives : state violence in Canada from slavery to the present
Maynard, Robyn, author
Halifax : Fernwood Publishing, 2017
On State Violence And Black Lives -- Devaluing Black Life, Demonizing Black Bodies: Anti-Blackness From Slavery To Segregation -- The Black Side Of The Mosaic: Slavery, Racial Capitalism And The Making Of Contemporary Black Poverty -- Arrested (In)Justice: From The Streets To The Prison -- Law Enforcement Violence Against Black Women: Naming Their Names, Telling Their Stories -- Misogynoir In Canada: Punitive State Practices And The Devaluation Of Black Women And Gender-Oppressed People -- "Of Whom We Have Too Many": Black Life And Border Regulation -- Destroying Black Families: Slavery's Afterlife In The Child Welfare System -- The (Mis)Education Of Black Youth: Anti-Blackness In The School System -- From "Woke" To Free: Imaging Black Futures.

"Policing Black Bodies is a timely and much-needed exposure of historical and contemporary practices of state-sanctioned violence against Black lives in Canada. This groundbreaking work dispels many prevailing myths that cast Canada as a land of benevolence and racial equality, and uncovers long-standing state practices that have restricted Black freedom. A first of its kind, Policing Black Bodies creates a framework that makes legible how anti-Blackness has influenced the construction of Canada's carceral landscape, including the development and application of numerous criminal law enforcement and border regulation practices. The book traces the historical and contemporary mobilization of anti-Blackness spanning from slavery, 19th and 20th century segregation practices, and the application of early drug and prostitution laws through to the modern era. Maynard makes visible the ongoing legacy of a demonized and devalued Blackness that is manifest today as racial profiling by police, immigration agents and social services, the over-representation of Black communities in jails and prisons, anti-Black immigration detention and deportation practices, the over-representation of Black youth in state care, the school-to-prison pipeline and gross economic inequality. Following the dictums of the Black Lives Matter movement, Policing Black Bodies adopts an intersectional lens that explores the realities of those whose lives and experiences have historically been marginalized, stigmatized, and made invisible. In addressing how state practices have impacted Black lives, the book brings from margin to centre an analysis of gender, class, sexuality, (dis)ability, citizenship and criminalization. Beyond exploring systemic racial injustice, Policing Black Bodies pushes the limits of the Black radical imagination: it delves into liberatory Black futures and urges the necessity of transformative alternatives."--

Por los senderos de un Tlamatini : homenaje a Joaquín Galarza
Luz María Mohar Betancourt, coordinadora
Ciudad de México : Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropología Social, 2017
"Después de la Conquista, valiosos temas quedaron plasmados sobre pieles de venado, hojas de amate o lienzos. Estos documentos o códices son testimonios de una tradición escritural heredada y ejercida por los llamados tlacuilos o escritores-pintores del México antiguo. Fueron estos materiales los que interesaron al sabio o tlamatini doctor Joaquín Galarza. Para ello, creó un método de acercamiento en el que la imagen es la materia que se estudia. Propuso nuevas formas que enriquecieron la manera de acercarse a su estudio y marcaron un camino para el análisis y la lectura de las imágenes mesoamericanas. En dichas imágenes, analizadas con parámetros distintos de los europeos, el tamaño, el uso del espacio, la orientación, el color, y la lengua, entre otros, se proponen como elementos clave para entenderlos. Los textos que aquí se presentan incorporan esa mirada sobre los códices seleccionados. Son un conjunto que permite acercarse a las propuestas aplicadas a diversos documentos de tributo, mapas y anales; la presencia femenina, las demandas de la antigua nobleza, los cambios políticos, el pago en monedas. Otros textos permiten conocer los litigios por tierras o por herencia de bienes. La relación entre la imagen y la lengua, una de las preocupaciones de Galarza, se incorpora en los códices aquí estudiados. El énfasis que el doctor hacía en la importancia de la etnografía también quedó plasmada. La incorporación de las oraciones católicas en la pictografía indígena, tema de una de sus publicaciones, aquí se retorna. Finalmente, los intrincados caminos de un códice y la influencia galarziana en alumnos e instituciones cierran el conjunto."--Back cover.

"En los últimos años se han acrecentado las movilizaciones de los pueblos y comunidades indígenas para defender sus territorios y a su población ante el despojo, del mismo modo en que se han hecho visibles los reclamos de actores indígenas que disputan sus derechos en las instituciones judiciales del Estado y frente a instancias jurisdiccionales internacionales. Este libro documenta las formas actuales que asume esta compleja relación entre el Estado y los pueblos indígenas de México, al tiempo que subraya la capacidad de estos últimos para generar alternativas. Pese a los contextos cada vez más conflictivos y desfavorables, llama la atención la fuerza con la que, mientras se movilizan, recurren al derecho para disputar la justicia, y en estos procesos renuevan sus identidades étnicas a la vez que afirman el vínculo con sus territorios y su historia"--Back cover.
