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.

Você está indo à Inglaterra a negócios, de férias ou para estudar? A cultura inglesa é bem diferente da brasileira ou portuguesa e isso vai ficar claro assim que você chegar ao país ou tiver contato com o povo. Você trabalha com ingleses e não consegue entender seu jeito de ser, suas piadas, obsessões e maneira educada? A regra de ouro da sociedade inglesa não é (pasmem) a pontualidade e seriedade. Na verdade, os ingleses não são bem quem você pensa que são! Eles estão acostumados a serem vistos de forma estereotipada e preferem que assim seja: não se importam nem um pouco que a Inglaterra seja vista como um país povoado por hooligans, uma nobreza boba e cockneys, todos se encontrando em um pub antigo e tomando um pint de cerveja quente. Neste guia prático sobre cultura e etiqueta você vai conhecer de perto a alma, a personalidade e os hábitos de um povo que influenciou e continua influenciando centenas de países e culturas ao redor do mundo. “Os estrangeiros que acham que “How do you do” vem embutido com um ponto de interrogação e respondem à “pergunta” são repelidos educadamente.” Não cometa esse e outros erros ao conversar com eles! Aprenda a lidar com os ingleses (ao modo deles) e conquiste-os para sempre.

Quem são os verdadeiros americanos? Sofisticados moradores de Nova York ou jecas da "América profunda"? Intelectuais vencedores do prêmio Nobel ou truculentos senhores da guerra? Para uns, os Estados Unidos da América são um paradigma da modernidade, para outros, um monstro tentacular imperialista. Gostemos ou não, os americanos são importantes. E muito. Todos os dias eles bombardeiam o mundo com filmes, séries de tv, hambúrgueres e Coca-Cola. Suas músicas são ouvidas em todos os continentes. Seus ícones transformaram-se em símbolos mundiais e o inglês é uma espécie de língua franca universal. Qual a origem da autoconfiança e soberba dos americanos? E mais: como esse gigantesco vizinho do norte se tornou o que é, rico e poderoso? Com texto denso, brilhante e provocativo, o historiador Antonio Pedro Tota rastreia origens, costumes e paradoxos desse povo, desde o início até a eleição do primeiro presidente negro. Fala também de expansionismo, anos dourados, guerras, escândalos, jazz, cinema e muito mais. Leitura fascinante.

"Os americanos" une nomes ilustres da literatura dos Estados Unidos. Enquanto se construía como nação, ao longo do "extenso século XIX", para parafrasear Eric Hobsbawn em relação ao "curto século XX" (que teria começado de fato apenas em 1914, na Primeira Guerra Mundial), grandes escritores, de Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804) a Scott Fitzgerald (1896), criavam uma literatura nacional que, por sua vez, ajudaria a criar o próprio modo como os Estados Unidos e o mundo conheceriam e reconheceriam o país. Estão presentes, neste livro: Nathaniel Hawthorne e seu retrato profundo da América puritana, Edgar Allan Poe e a invenção de gêneros modernos como as histórias policiais e de suspense, Herman Melville e a vida no mar (metáfora de tudo que não se pode vencer ou sequer controlar), Mark Twain e as relações sociais do Sul, Henry James e a Nova Inglaterra, O. Henry e a riqueza e a pobreza da exuberante e também sombria vida urbana, Jack London e a vida nas fronteiras da civilização, Scott Fitzgerald e o lado obscuro da luminosa "era do jazz". Um oceano de histórias por onde redescobrir a América.

And certain treasures are better kept hidden. There is a man who would fathom deep for a friend; a daughter who would go any extent to find the whereabouts of her father; and a person who would kill to hide his secrets.

Few people have any extensive knowledge of the life and witness of the Protestant churches in the former Portuguese colonies of southern Africa. Yet these communities of faith played a significant role in the liberation struggles that led to the independence of both Mozambique and Angola and subsequently to the independence of Zimbabwe and the ending of apartheid in South Africa. In Mozambique, Eduardo Mondlane emerged from the Swiss Mission to become the first president of the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO). This book examines Mondlane's role in challenging the churches both in Mozambique and globally to support the struggle for independence through a renewed understanding of the missio Dei, God's liberating mission in the world. Mondlane maintained a strong connection with the World Council of Churches and was a key player in bringing about its Programme to Combat Racism after the 1968 Assembly in Uppsala before his assassination in 1969. This connection was to have important implications for the WCC's complex relationship with Mozambique and its Protestant churches following independence.
