In their own best interest : a history of the U.S. effort to improve Latin Americans
Schoultz, Lars, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2018
Introduction: Altruists and realists -- Latin Americans' need for improvement -- "Hard" uplifting begins -- "Hard" uplifting becomes normal: dollar diplomacy -- Latin Americans resist: no protectorates -- Latin Americans resist: no intervention -- "Soft" uplifting begins: the Good Neighbor years -- Latin Americans rebuffed: the early Cold War -- Uplifting's golden years, 1959-1964 -- Soft uplifting becomes normal: the later Cold War -- From economic to political uplifting -- Good governance in the twenty-first century -- Conclusion: Whose best interests?.

In this book, Lars Schoultz explores the culture of "improvement" that defines the attitudes and values shaping all United States policies towards Latin America in the past and present. Schoultz's aim is to find the sources of this political and intellectual culture which has informed our relations with our southern neighbors and which continues to do so despite its faulty premises and its failure to effect change and transformation. Schoultz focuses on two period in the past as critical to embedding the culture and policies of improvement: the Progressive Era, which established the belief in "uplifting" others for their betterment, and the Cold War Era, which established the institutions for sustaining and implementing the process of uplifting a people and state. In Their Own Best Interest: A History of the U.S. Effort to Improve Latin Americans is a powerful historical indictment of a "constellation of beliefs" that has been a central part of Washington's foreign policy establishment and culture. The notion that the United States knows better than its allies and neighbors what is best for each of them resonates beyond Latin America and underlies much of the United States' foreign policies around the world.--

The secret token : myth, obsession, and the search for the lost colony of Roanoke
Lawler, Andrew, author
New York : Doubleday, [2018]
Part one: The planting. Some delicate garden ; All signs of joy ; Firing invisible bullets ; Small things flourish by concord -- Part two: The search. A whole country of English ; Child of science and slow time ; A four-hundred-year-old cover-up ; Pot of brass ; Rejoicing in things stark naughty ; We dare anything ; Heap plenty wampum -- Part three: The revelation. Who's afraid of Virginia Dare? ; Swamp saints and renegades ; Return to Roanoke ; An old buck Christmas -- Coda : a brave kingdom.

"A sweeping account of America's oldest unsolved mystery, the people racing to unearth its answer, and the sobering truths--about race, gender, and immigration--exposed by the Lost Colony of Roanoke. In 1587, 115 men, women, and children arrived at Roanoke Island on the coast of North Carolina. Chartered by Queen Elizabeth I, their colony was to establish England's first foothold in the New World. But when the colony's leader, John White, returned to Roanoke from a resupply mission, his settlers were nowhere to be found. They left behind only a single clue--a "secret token" carved into a tree. Neither White nor any other European laid eyes on the colonists again. What happened to the Lost Colony of Roanoke? For four hundred years, that question has consumed historians and amateur sleuths, leading only to dead ends and hoaxes. But after a chance encounter with a British archaeologist, journalist Andrew Lawler discovered that solid answers to the mystery were within reach. He set out to unravel the enigma of the lost settlers, accompanying competing researchers, each hoping to be the first to solve its riddle. In the course of his journey, Lawler encounters a host of characters obsessed with the colonists and their fate, and he determines why the Lost Colony continues to haunt our national consciousness. Thrilling and absorbing, The Secret Token offers a new understanding not just of the first English settlement in the New World but of how its disappearance continues to define--and divide--America."--Dust jacket.

Being prime minister
Stewart, J. D. M., author
Toronto : Dundurn, 2018
"Canada has had twenty-three prime ministers, all with views and policies that have differed as widely as the ages in which they lived. But what were they like as people? Being Prime Minister takes you behind the scenes to tell the story of Canada's leaders and the job they do as it has never been told before. From John A. Macdonald to Justin Trudeau, readers get a glimpse of the prime ministers as they travelled, dealt with invasions of privacy, met with celebrities, and managed the stress of the nation's top job. Humorous and hard working, vain and vulnerable, Canada leaders are revealed as they truly were."--

Le Pérou avant les Incas
sous la direction de Santiago Uceda Castillo et Luis Jaime Castillo
Paris : Flammarion, [2017]
Cet ouvrage est publié à l'occasion de l'exposition éponyme présentée au musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, Paris, du 14 novembre 2017 au 1er avril 2018. Les vestiges des premières sociétés de la côte nord du Pérou subissaient depuis longtemps l'outrage du temps et des destructions. Leur souvenir s'évanouissait dans l'ombre d'une civilisation éclatante, celle des Incas. Depuis trente ans, fouilles et études des cultures matérielles livrent peu à peu les secrets d'une histoire se comptant en millénaires. Le Pérou avant les Incas témoigne avec science et clarté de ces trésors du patrimoine culturel péruvien mis au jour par les archéologues : remarquables céramiques, ornements ouvragés en or, cuivre et argent.0Dans la facture de ces pièces et dans leurs fonctions se lisent des pratiques sociales, des relations de pouvoir, des croyances que l'ouvrage questionne de manière passionnante. Par l'analyse de l'architecture, se dessine la trame de sociétés sans lesquelles les Incas n'auraient sans doute pas atteint le degré de développement et d'innovation qui fut le leur.

Photopoetics at Tlatelolco : afterimages of Mexico, 1968
Steinberg, Samuel (Assistant professor of Spanish), author
Austin : University of Texas Press, 2016
Archive and event -- Postponed images : the plenitude of the unfinished -- Testimonio and the future without excision -- Exorcinema : spectral transitions -- Literary restoration -- An-archaeologies of 1968.

"In the months leading up to the 1968 Olympic games in Mexico City, students took to the streets, calling for greater democratization and decrying crackdowns on political resistance by the ruling PRI party. During a mass meeting held at the Plaza of the Three Cultures in the Tlatelolco neighborhood, paramilitary forces opened fire on the gathering ... Rereading the legacy of this tragedy through diverse artistic-political interventions across the decades, [the book] explores the state's dual repression -- both the massacre's crushing effects on the movement and the manipulation of cultural discourse and political thought in the aftermath. Examining artifacts ranging from documentary photography and testimony to poetry, essays, chronicles, cinema, literary texts, video, and performance, Samuel Steinberg considers the broad photographic and photopoetic nature of modern witnessing as well as the specific elements of light (gunfire, flares, camera flashes) that ultimately defined the massacre. Steinberg also demonstrates the ways in which the labels of 'massacre' and 'sacrifice' inform contemporary perceptions of the state's blatant and violent repression of unrest. With implications for similar processes throughout the rest of Latin America from the 1960s to the present day, [the book] provides a powerful new model for understanding the intersection of political history and cultural memory."--

Argentina's missing bones : revisiting the history of the dirty war
Brennan, James P., 1955- author
Oakland, California : University of California Press, [2018]
Threats : apostles of the new order -- Dictatorship : terrorizing Córdoba -- Death camp : La Perla -- Institutional dynamics : the Third Army Corps -- Transnational dynamics : the Cold War and the war against subversion -- Five trials : public reckonings of a violent past -- Remembering : memories of violence and terror -- Assigning blame : who was responsible for the dirty war?

"Argentina's missing bones: revisiting the history of the dirty war examines the history of state terrorism during Argentina's 1976-83 military dictatorship in a single place: the industrial city of Córdoba, Argentina's second largest city and the site of some of the dirty war's greatest crimes. It examines the city's previous history of social protest, working-class militancy, and leftist activism as an explanation for the particular nature of the dirty war there. Argentina's missing bones examines both national and transnational influences on the counter-revolutionary war in Córdoba. The book also considers the legacy of this period and examines the role of the state in constructing a public memory of the violence and holding those responsible accountable through the most extensive trials for crimes against humanity to take place anywhere in Latin America"--Provided by publisher.

Race and the Brazilian body : Blackness, Whiteness, and everyday language in Rio de Janeiro

"Based on the spontaneous conversations of shantytown youth hanging out on the streets of their neighborhoods and interviews from the comfortable living rooms of the middle class, Race and the Brazilian Body asks how racial ideas about the superiority of whiteness and the inferiority of blackness continue to play out in the daily lives of Rio de Janeiro's residents. This ethnographic account describes how cariocas (Rio residents) "read" the body for racial signs, looking beyond phenotype to pay careful attention to cultural and linguistic practices, including the use of nonstandard speech commonly described as slang (gíria)"--Provided by publisher.

God, War, and Providence : The Epic Struggle of Roger Williams and the Narragansett Indians against the Puritans of New England
Warren, James A., author
New York : Scribner, 2018
Introduction: A winter invasion in Narragansett Country -- 1635 : Indians and Puritans, separate and together -- A godly minister, banished -- "For persons distressed of conscience" : Providence -- Troubles on the frontier : the Pequot War -- "Did ever friends deal so with friends?" -- To London -- Rumors of war, unity at last, 1644-57 -- A royal charter, and new troubles in Narragansett Country, 1657-65 -- "In a strange way" : King Philip's War -- The Narragansett War -- Aftermath.

"God, War, and Providence tells the epic story of resistance to Puritan domination in Rhode Island, the heretic colony that was home to the Narragansetts, seventeenth-century New England's most powerful Indian tribe, and to Roger Williams, America's leading advocate of religious freedom. Dramatically banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1635, Williams purchased land from the Narragansetts and founded the town of Providence, Rhode Island, as a place where Indian and English cultures could flourish side by side, in peace. The Puritans, however, wanted to control Providence and achieve mastery over the Narragansetts. Williams and the Narragansetts waged a grueling forty-year resistance campaign against Puritan subjugation. Despite constant harassment, the tribe steadfastly refused to buckle under to the authority of the Puritan political confederation. After two military operations against the tribe sputtered into failure, an army of a thousand Puritan soldiers launched a ferocious attack on the tribe's remote fort in December 1675. The Great Swamp Fight drew the Narragansetts into the tragic and immensely destructive conflict known as King Philip's War, the event that historian Jill Lepore describes as the 'defining moment, when any lingering, though slight, possibility for [Indian] political and cultural autonomy was lost.' In God, War, and Providence, James A. Warren explores in detail the remarkable alliance between Roger Williams and the Narragansett Indians, explaining how they joined forces to defend their autonomy and their distinctive ways of life against Puritan encroachment. Deeply researched and vividly written, this spellbinding account of the Narragansetts' courageous resistance campaign serves as a telling precedent for white-Native American encounters along the North American frontier for the next 250 years."--Dust jacket.

The Routledge companion to gender, sex and Latin American culture
edited by Frederick Luis Aldama
New York, NY : Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
The Routledge Companion to Gender, Sex and Latin American Culture is the first comprehensive volume to explore the intersections between gender, sexuality, and the creation, consumption, and interpretation of popular culture in the Americas. The chapters seek to enrich our understanding of the role of pop culture in the everyday lives of its creators and consumers, primarily in the 20th and 21st centuries. They reveal how popular culture expresses the historical, social, cultural, and political commonalities that have shaped the lives of peoples that make up the Americas, and also highlight how pop culture can conform to and solidify existing social hierarchies, whilst on other occasions contest and resist the status quo. Front and center in this collection are issues of gender and sexuality, making visible the ways in which subjects who inhabit intersectional identities (sex, gender, race, class) are "othered", as well as demonstrating how these same subjects can, and do, use pop-cultural phenomena in self-affirmative and progressively transformative ways. Topics covered in this volume include TV, film, pop and performance art, hip-hop, dance, slam poetry, gender-fluid religious ritual, theater, stand-up comedy, graffiti, videogames, photography, graphic arts, sports spectacles, comic books, sci-fi and other genre novels, loteria card games, news, web, and digital media.

"James Naylor, author of The Fate of Labour Socialism George Hara Williams was the most successful of the early leaders of the CCF in Saskatchewan. But his role in the party was undermined by Tommy Douglas and M.J. Coldwell, and now he is largely forgotten. The populist who mobilized farmers of the province to support a socialist platform, Williams was one of five MLAs elected in the 1934 election, becoming Leader of the Opposition. He firmly supported socialists participating in the struggle against fascism, including military action, a position not held by everyone in the party. While Williams was serving overseas, a campaign to replace him as leader, led by Coldwell and Douglas, was successful. Until now, the full story of Williams's role in building the CCF and bringing it to the threshold of power, and his defeat as leader, has never been told."--Provided by publisher.

Cacaxtla : conservación de la arquitectura de fábrica
Buendía Herrera, Víctor Hugo, author
Ciudad de México : Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, 2017
Introducción -- Construcción del gran basamento de Cacaxtla -- Teoría y conservanción de las estructuras de fabricas -- Investigación e intervención de las fabricas. Propuestas metodologias.

The pre-Hispanic City of Cacaxtla is one of the most representative examples of the creative genius of the societies that formed the great cultural region denominated by Paul Kirchhoff in 1943, as Mesoamerica. The neglect of the time, - as assumed alteration of built assets -archaeological explorations, as well as the use of atavistic conservation techniques, which were not always employed materials suitable for-, made necessary an intervention that would return stability and balance to the so-called great basement of Cacaxtla. This book comprises a present account of such meticulous work which with the help of various specialists, headed by Dr. Laura Ledesma Gallegos, has as its main objective, based on the use of pre-Hispanic metrology and the geometry, as well as the use of factory materials, to ensure the permanence of this example of Mexico's cultural heritage for future generations.

La moledora : el último mito de los Pastos
Ávalos, Édison, author
Quito, Ecuador : Ediciones Abya-Yala, 2017
The ancestors are telling that many years ago there was living in the cold mountainous regions of the frontier between Colombia and Ecuador a woman who intercepted the men grinded them with two gigantic stones and then ate them sucking out their bones.The authors of this book, parting from an interdisciplinarian reflection, are pointing out in this story, called La moledora, the cultural features of the Pasto Indians, adjudicated to the Agricultural Community La Esperanza in Carchi and to the Indian Protectorate of Chiles in Nariño. Moreover, they state that the actualization of this story, linked to other tales of the local oral tradition, allows the narrative return of sacred beliefs that are supposed to be eradicated since the Spanish Conquest. So, La moledora has been brought up as a millennial ark, where the Indian community is constructing incessantly and maintaining permanently its ethics of the Pastos.

In 1952, Agustín Villagra Caleti (Mexico City 1907) was commissioned by INAH to document and produce a scientific registry of the fragments of the murals found in the architectural complex of Tetila in the archaeological site of Teotihuacan. Villagra Caleti copied in original size the derbis of the murals of corridors 12 and 128 of the discovered site. He call his gouache paintings "Realistic Paintings". This monograph presents for the first time the album of drawings of Villagra. Of the 58, paintings numbered 1 to 57 and 103 are part of the first folder. A second folder containing paintings 58 to 101 is still unpublished. The edition was complemented with analytical contributions along with important iconographic and epigraphic data of the murals. The complete works of Villagra Caleti (156 rolls and 21 files of drawings of pre-Hispanic art manifestations) were donated to UNAM IIE in 2006 and are now part of the holdings of the Fondo Reservado section of the Biblioteca Justino Fernández.

Deeply rooted in the present : heritage, memory, and identity in the Brazilian quilombos
Kenny, Mary Lorena, author
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, 2018
Introduction -- Slavery, Quilombos, and land -- From enslavement to Quilombolas -- Quilombola identity -- Conclusion.

"Based on ethnographic fieldwork, interviews, and historical research, Deeply Rooted in the Present illustrates the processes that contribute to making cultural identity, and the ways in which memories, knowledge, and experience are made into heritage. Using a quilombola community (descendants of enslaved Africans) in Northeast Brazil as a case study, Kenny asks what it means to be a quilombola in the 21st century. In the process, she demonstrates how heritage and identity do not simply exist, but are continually being made and remade according to the social, cultural and political needs of the present. The book includes an appendix of supplementary exercises that encourage readers to make connections between the case study at hand, their own heritage, and heritage making efforts in other parts of the world."--

After insurgency : revolution and electoral politics in El Salvador
Sprenkels, Ralph, author
Notre Dame, Indiana : University of Notre Dame Press, [2018]
Echoes of revolution -- Part 1. Drawing out insurgent relations. El Salvador's insurgency : a relational account -- Interlude : with the FPL in Chalatenango, 1992-95 -- Postinsurgent reconversion -- Part 2. Ethnographies of postinsurgency. Inside Chalatenango's former "People's Republic" -- Postwar life trajectories of former guerrilla fighters -- FMLN veterans' politics -- Salvadoran politics and the enduring legacies of insurgency.

"El Salvador's 2009 presidential elections marked a historical feat: Frente Farabundo Martí para la Liberación Nacional (FMLN) became the first former Latin American guerrilla movement to win the ballot after failing to take power by means of armed struggle. In 2014, former comandante Salvador Sánchez Cerén became the country's second FMLN president. After Insurgency focuses on the development of El Salvador's FMLN from armed insurgency to a strong and competitive political party. At the end of the war in 1992, the historical ties between insurgent veterans enabled the FMLN to reconvert into a relatively effective electoral machine. However, these same ties also fueled factional dispute and clientelism. Drawing on in-depth ethnographic fieldwork, Ralph Sprenkels examines El Salvador's revolutionary movement as a social field, developing an innovative theoretical and methodological approach to the study of insurgent movements in general and their aftermath in particular. By extensively analyzing the movement's internal politics, the book draws attention to insurgency's persistent legacies, both for those involved as well as for Salvadoran politics at large. Sprenkels reveals the personal perspectives and stories of former revolutionaries who must now contend with a postrevolutionary nation in El Salvador. He balances the personal narratives with a larger historical study of the civil war and of the transformation process of wartime forces into postwar political contenders. In documenting the shift from armed struggle to electoral politics, the book adds to ongoing debates about contemporary Latin America politics, the "pink tide," and post-neoliberal electoralism. It also charts new avenues in the study of insurgency and its aftermath."--Provided by publisher.

Paisanos Chinos : transpacific politics among Chinese immigrants in Mexico
González, Fredy, 1984- author
Oakland, California : University of California Press, [2017]
Introduction -- Mexico for the Mexicans, China for the Chinese : political upheaval and the anti-Chinese campaigns in postrevolutionary Sonora and Sinaloa -- Those who remained and those who returned : resistance, migration, and diplomacy during the anti-Chinese campaigns -- We won't be bullied anymore : the Chinese community in Mexico during the Second World War -- The golden age of Chinese Mexicans : anti-communist activism under ambassador Feng-Shan Ho, 1958-1964 -- The Cold War comes to Chinatown : Chinese Mexicans caught between Beijing and Taipei, 1955-1971 -- A new China, a new community -- Conclusion.

"Paisanos Chinos tracks Chinese Mexican transnational political activities in the wake of the anti-Chinese campaigns that crossed Mexico in 1931. Threatened by violence, Chinese Mexicans strengthened their ties to China--both Nationalist and Communist--as a means of safeguarding their presence. Paisanos Chinos illustrates the ways in which transpacific ties helped Chinese Mexicans make a claim to belonging in Mexico and challenge traditional notions of Mexican identity and nationhood. From celebrating the end of the Second World War alongside their neighbors to carrying out an annual community pilgrimage to the Basílica de Guadalupe, Chinese Mexicans came out of the shadows to refute longstanding caricatures and integrate themselves into Mexican society."--

Green wars : conservation and decolonization in the Maya Forest
Ybarra, Megan, author
Oakland, California : University of California Press, [2018]
Introduction: Conservation and settler logics of elimination -- Making the Maya Forest -- We didn't invade the park, the park invaded us -- Rethinking Ladinos as settlers -- Taxing the Kaxlan: Q'eqchi' self-determination within and beyond the Settler State -- Narco-narratives and twenty-first-century Green Wars -- Conclusion: Decolonizing the Maya Forest, and beyond.

"Green Wars challenges international conservation efforts, revealing through in-depth case studies how "saving" the Maya Forest facilitates racialized dispossession. Megan Ybarra brings Guatemala's 36-year civil war into the perspective of a longer history of 200 years of settler colonialism to show how conservation works to make Q'eqchi's into immigrants on their own territory. Even as the post-war state calls on them to claim rights as individual citizens, Q'eqchi's seek survival as a people. Her analysis reveals that Q'eqchi's both appeal to the nation-state and engage in relationships of mutual recognition with other Indigenous peoples -- and the land itself -- in their calls for a material decolonization"--

Redeeming La Raza : transborder modernity, race, respectability, and rights
González, Gabriela, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Redeeming La Raza in the world of two flags entwined -- Modernizing Mexico, 1900-1929 -- Social change, cultural redemption, and social stability: the political strategies of gente decente reform -- Masons, magonistas, and maternalists: liberal, anarchist, and maternalist thought within a local/global nexus -- Crossing borders to rebirth the nation: Leonor Villegas de Magnón and the Mexican Revolution -- Borderlands Mexican Americans in modern Texas, 1930-1950 -- All for country and home: the transnational lives and work of Romúlo Munguía and Carolina Malpica de Munguía -- La pasionaria (the passionate one): Emma Tenayuca and the politics of radical reform -- Struggling against Jaime Crow: LULAC, gente decente heir to a transborder political strategy.

"Redeeming La Raza examines the gendered and class-conscious political activism of Mexican-origin people in Texas from 1900 to 1950. In particular, it questions the inter-generational agency of Mexicans and Mexican Americans who subscribed to particular race-ethnic, class, and gender ideologies as they encountered barriers and obstacles in a society that often treated Mexicans as a nonwhite minority. Middle-class transborder activists sought to redeem the Mexican masses from body politic exclusions in part by encouraging them to become identified with the nation-state. Redeeming La Raza was as much about saving them from traditional modes of thought and practices that were perceived as hindrances to progress as it was about saving them from race and class-based forms of discrimination that were part and parcel of modernity. At the center of this link between modernity and discriminatory practices based on social constructions lay the economic imperative for the abundant and inexpensive labor power that the modernization process required. Labeling groups of people as inferior helped to rationalize their economic exploitation in a developing modern nation-state that also professed to be a democratic society founded upon principles of political egalitarianism. This book presents cases of transborder activism that demonstrate how the politics of respectability and the politics of radicalism operated, often at odds but sometimes in complementary ways."--Provided by publisher.

Cultural agents reloaded : the legacy of Antanas Mockus
edited by Carlo Tognato ; translation, Lisa Crossman
Cambridge, MA : Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, Harvard University, [2017]
Cultural Agents Reloaded: The Legacy of Antanas Mockus systematically reflects on the practices and legacy of one exceptional cultural agent, Antanas Mockus, twice Mayor of Bogotá, Colombia. His accomplishments bear witness to the potential of creative, symbolic practices as a trigger for social change. His failures, in turn, demonstrate what happens when cultural agency and epistemic legitimacy take divergent paths. Mockus's example motivates us to further revise and sharpen our understanding of what cultural agency is in the present day by bringing into focus some of the most formidable challenges that public humanities face when they travel South and struggle to become genuinely global.

Tip of the iceberg : my 3,000-mile journey around wild Alaska, the last great American frontier
Adams, Mark, 1967- author
New York, New York : Dutton, An imprint of Penguin Random House LLC, [2018]
"In 1899, railroad magnate Edward H. Harriman organized a most unusual summer voyage to the wilds of Alaska: He converted a steamship into a luxury "floating university," populated by some of America's best and brightest scientists and writers, including the anti-capitalist eco-prophet John Muir. Those aboard encountered a land of immeasurable beauty and impending environmental calamity. More than a hundred years later, Alaska is still America's most sublime wilderness, both the lure that draws a million tourists annually on Inside Passage cruises and a natural resources larder waiting to be raided. As ever, it remains a magnet for weirdos and dreamers. Armed with Dramamine and an industrial-strength mosquito net, Mark Adams sets out to retrace the 1899 expedition. Using the state's intricate public ferry system, the Alaska Marine Highway System, Adams travels three thousand miles, following the George W. Elder's itinerary north through Wrangell, Juneau, and Glacier Bay, then continuing west into the colder and stranger regions of the Aleutians and the Arctic Circle. Along the way, he encounters dozens of unusual characters (and a couple of very hungry bears) and investigates how lessons learned in 1899 might relate to Alaska's current struggles in adapting to the pressures of a changing climate and world." -- Amazon.com.

Devil's mile : the rich, gritty history of the Bowery
Alexiou, Alice Sparberg, 1951- author
New York : St. Martin's Press, 2018
The Dutch -- The governor with the silver leg -- Bowery Lane -- The Astors -- Shakespeare and Jim Crow come to the Bowery Theatre -- The mob takes the stage -- The Civil War on the Bowery -- The devil's work -- The Jews -- The king of the Bowery -- The bums on the Bowery -- Punk -- Bones and ghosts.

"A fascinating cultural history of New York City's Bowery, from the author of The Flatiron. The Bowery was a synonym for despair throughout most of the 20th century. The neighborhood's name recalled visuals of drunken bums passed out on the sidewalk, and New Yorkers nicknamed it 'Satan's Highway,' 'The Mile of Hell,' and 'The Street of Forgotten Men.' It was so shameful for so many years that the little businesses along the Bowery--stationers, dry goods sellers, jewelers, hatters--periodically asked the city to change the street's name. To have a Bowery address, they claimed, was hurting them; people did not want to venture there. But in the 1990s, as New York was exploding into real estate frenzy, developers discovered the Bowery. Around 2000, they rushed in and began tearing down. Today, the bad old Bowery no longer exists, and instead, Whole Foods, hipster night spots, and expensive lofts replace the flophouses and dive bars. In Devil's Mile, Alice Sparberg Alexiou explores the history and future of The Bowery back to its origins, when farmland covered the areas around the boulevard and the area around it was considered outside of town. She'll explore the years after the Civil War when the Bowery rivaled Fifth Avenue for best Manhattan addresses. And she'll tell this story as soon as she can, before all its old buildings, and the memories associated with them, disappear"--
