A premier volume in Oxford's Pivotal Moments in World History series, Americanos offers an engagingly written, compact history of the Latin American wars of independence. Proceeding almost cinematically, scene by vivid scene, John Charles Chasteen introduces the reader to lead players, basic concepts, key events, and dominant trends, braided together in a single, taut narrative. He vividly depicts the individuals and events of those tumultuous years, capturing the gathering forces for independence, the clashes of troops and decisions of leaders, and the rich, elaborate tapestry of Latin American societies as they embraced nationhood.

Education is a primary route to rewarding employment and economic security. It is particularly significant for the future prospects of children who are ethnic minorities, were born into disadvantaged economic circumstances, or are dealing with language barriers. For nearly a decade Julio Cammarota interviewed and observed Latino youth between the ages of seventeen and twenty-four who lived in a barrio in a city on the California coast. He conducted forty life interviews, selecting six people to investigate in depth. Twenty of the study participants worked at a fast-food restaurant, while the other twenty worked at a community cultural center. Focusing on the experiences of his subjects in the primary settings of family, work, and school, Cammarota structured his research to examine how Latino youth negotiate myriad social conditions and hostile economic and political pressures in their daily lives. His extensive interviews and incisive analyses illuminate the complex relationships among low-wage employment, cultural standards, education, class oppression, and gender expectations. Among other topics, Cammarota investigates how working affects Latino education; how gender influences social relationships and life choices; how Latinos and Latinas try to maintain their distinct ethnic identity while attempting to transcend marginalization; whether the Latino culture helps young people work hard for their families and for a better future; and how the connections and disconnections among work, family, and school constitute formative processes that shape the cultural identities of Latino youth. One of the most extensive studies of barrio youth available, Sueños Americanos concludes with a discussion of social justice education for Latino youth and how this educational approach meets their academic needs while providing opportunities for self-determination and community activism.

Doing business internationally requires understanding not only other languages, but even more so the business practices and cultures of other countries. In the case of Brazilians working with Americans, a fundamental difference for all parties to understand is that Brazilian business culture is based on developing personal relationships between business partners, while American businesspeople often prefer to get down to hard "facts and figures" quickly, with fewer personal preliminaries. Negotiating such differences is crucial to creating successful business relationships between the two countries, and this book is designed to help businesspeople do just that. Brazilians Working With Americans presents ten short case studies that effectively illustrate many of the cultural factors that come into play when North American business professionals work in Brazil. The authors summarize each case and the aspects of culture it involves, and American and Brazilian executives comment on the cultural differences highlighted by that case. A list of topics and questions for discussion also help draw out the lessons of each business situation. To make the book equally useful to Brazilians and Americans (whether businesspeople or language students), the entire text is presented in both English and Portuguese. In addition, Apple QuickTime movies of the executives' comments, which allow viewers to see and hear native speakers of both languages, are available on the Internet at www.laits.utexas.edu/orkelm/casos/intro.html.

La fe vivificante de 30 santos nacidos en el continente americano se ilustra en un diálogo vivo y actual que los autores establecen con los santos y santas a quienes se honran como tales en la Iglesia, pueblo de Dios. A lo largo de estas páginas, el lector llega a ver y experimentar el santo como una persona que camina con él y que lo invita a seguir no su ejemplo, sino a Cristo, que es la motivación última de la santidad. Más allá de relatar la historia biográfica—que también se incluye—los relatos contextualizan las cualidades de los santos y santas en el mundo de hoy de tal forma que la santidad se presenta como una posibilidad real para los cristianos de hoy. Este libro es ideal para aquellas personas que deseen comenzar o mejorar su relación con estos cristianos de nuestros países que han alcanzado la corona de la santidad y son una parte muy importante de nuestra familia espiritual. Las historias inspiradoras de estos modelos de vida son fundamentales para el desarrollo de la fe, especialmente entre los jóvenes hispanos. El libro sugiere algunas preguntas para reflexionar, solos o en grupo, y una oración a cada santo o santa. Disponible en inglés y español. The strength and vigor of the Catholic Church are nowhere more visible than in North and South America, where hundreds of millions of people claim the Catholic faith. Saints of the Americas features thirty heroes of this New World faith, with representatives from fifteen countries in South America, Central America, North America, and the Caribbean. Through "conversations" between the authors and the saints, readers will be inspired by the stories of Catherine Drezel and Elizabeth Ann Seton, who built schools and hospitals in the United States; martyr Óscar Romero from El Salvador; Venezuelan physician and healer José Gregorio Hernández; Peruvian Rose of Lima, the first saint of the Americas; and others. The faith and perseverance of these martyrs and monks, laypeople and clergy, mystics and activists will encourage people today to make a lasting difference in the world.

Rashad hoy también está ausente. Eso reza el graffiti con el que empezó todo. No, no exactamente. Todo comenzó con una señora tropezándose con Rashad en una tienda y con un paquete de patatas fritas cayéndose al suelo. Nada de lo que Rashad dijo después tuvo importancia. No impidió que la policía lo golpeara. Una y otra, y otra vez. Con violencia contra el pavimento. Porque parecía que estaba robando. Porque su piel era oscura. Porque sus ropas eran holgadas. Porque tenía que estar robando. Entonces Rashad comenzó a ausentarse por estar atrapado en un cuarto de hospital. Así empezó todo. Y así lo vio Quinn. Así vio como el hermano mayor de su mejor amigo golpeaba hasta casi matar a uno de sus compañeros de colegio. Así comprendió que no podía quedarse callado. Porque había un futuro en juego. Un futuro sin nadie más ausente por racismo y brutalidad policiaca. Un futuro en el que cada uno debe luchar por cambiar el mundo. Y así será como todo termine.

I was an Indian without a tribe, stuck in the Oakland Housing Projects ... with only a maternal compass to guide me. “Dios te bendiga, Mijo,” my mother would say placing her hand on my forehead each day, asking God to bless me. I could feel her medicine, her energy, and her hope for me enter my body, fill my soul, and warm the cold. This was Her Blessing Way, praying for my protection in her absence, warning me of all the dangers. There were many dangers for an Indian boy in 1950s Apartheid Oakland, a reflection of Apartheid America. This is a story of raising children in a country that hated US, a story of how my mother fought to protect her Native son, a story of how she WON! This is an example of a common Native struggle; native mothers protecting their children, during and after “The Indian Wars.” This is about the generational trauma from “The Indian Wars” and the wounded soul of an Indian boy, growing up to be a Warrior ... in response to that war against our humanity.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Der Bereich der deutschen Kolonialgeschichte allgemein kann wohl als gut erforscht gelten, und die Einführung technischer Neuerungen wie Dampfschiffe, Eisenbahn und Telegraph wurde zumindest ansatzweise beschrieben, doch fehlt insbesondere eine Beschreibung der Anwendungen und Auswirkungen, die die neue Technik auf das Leben in der Kolonie hatte. Ohne die Kenntnis solcher Folgewirkungen bleiben jedoch Rückschlüsse auf die Effektivität der Technik und damit auch ihr Einfluss auf die Kolonialpolitik reine Mutmaßung es ist unmöglich, solche Auswirkungen von reinem Wunschdenken bzw. Kolonialpropaganda und apologetik zu trennen (z.B. die Kolonie als Absatzmarkt der Industrie des Mutterlandes ). Die Gruppe der Kolonialisten, die die meisten Kontakte mit neuer Technik hatten bzw. diese im großen Maßstab erst einführten, waren die Kaufleute. Diese Gruppe auf die Folgen der Techniken zu untersuchen, bietet darüber hinaus den Vorteil, gleichzeitig die Reaktionen auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent, z.B. auf den Bahnbau und auch in Europa, hier etwa auf neue Stoffdruckverfahren oder auf die Expansion der Nahrungsmittelindustrie, zu erfahren, also alle für die koloniale Wirtschaft relevanten Verfahren untersuchen zu können. Obwohl es einige Untersuchungen zu Kolonialkaufleuten gibt, so beschränken sich diese doch auf mehr oder minder kurzgefasste Firmengeschichten oder sie werden in Zusammenhang mit bestimmten Handelsgütern erwähnt, dagegen wird eine Verbindung von Handelsfirmen und Technik selten untersucht. Einer der Gründe dafür ist sicherlich auch die schmale Informationsbasis. Da Handelsfirmen in der Regel nichtstaatlich organisiert waren, entfiel der Zwang zum Archivieren über die Fristen hinaus, die eventuell gesetzlich vorgesehen waren. Die Firmen, die bis heute weiterbestehen, gehen mit Genehmigungen zur Einsicht ihrer Firmenarchive zu Forschungszwecken sehr sparsam um. Unter diesen Aspekten betrachtet, ist die Firma O`Swald ein echter Glücksfall für die Forschung; obwohl bis heute zumindest als Firmenname präsent, wurden ihre Geschäftsakten von der Firmengründung bis weit nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg dem Hamburger Staatsarchiv übergeben, wo sie der Forschung zur Verfügung stehen. Der Grund dafür ist wohl in der engen Verbindung zu suchen, die die Firmengründer mit dem Stadtstaat hatten, so stellten sie unter anderem einen Bürgermeister und die Stadt ihrerseits ehrte die Familie durch die Benennung eines Kais im Hafen [...]

By the time Europeans arrived in Texas around AD 1500, groups of American Indians had been living in the region for thousands of years. Each group found different ways to live on the region they inhabited. They developed different cultures and traditions. They traded and fought with each other. And they struggled to survive European colonization and American expansion. Through it all, they worked to preserve their unique way of life.

Se o baixo chavão ideológico continua repetindo à exaustão que na América Latina - tudo nos une, no cotidiano dos fatos assim como no cenário da história tudo nos separa, a começar pela língua se nesse todo se quiser incluir o Brasil e se nele o Brasil se quiser incluir. Analisando (portanto admitindo) os inconvenientes de ser latino-americano e com isso exercendo um latino-americanismo crítico, Canclini produz aqui uma reflexão ao mesmo tempo comprometida com esta terra (que não é uma, porém várias) e com a idéia de integridade intelectual que rejeita as simplificações, conceituais e políticas.
