Book Excerpt :

"O aniversário de 25 anos da Agência Brasileiro-Argentina de Contabilidade e Controle de Materiais Nucleares (ABACC) é ocasião para festejar uma iniciativa absolutamente pioneira e defender o seu fortalecimento como mecanismo que contribui para a paz e a integração da América do Sul [...] Em um mundo marcado por conflitos e guerras, a ABACC pode servir de modelo para a superação de suspeitas e rivalidades, muitas vezes mais baseadas em falsas percepções do que na realidade, mas que entravam a cooperação e o progresso. Na América do Sul, a ABACC é prova de que o caminho da cooperação construtiva é não apenas desejável, mas plenamente possível." Do Prefácio de Celso Amorim

Book Short Summary:

CITAS NOTABLES DE MARTN LUTERO EN ESTE COMENTARIO Nos proponemos comentar esta epstola para confirmar nuestras conciencias contra las herejas que vendrn. Pues si descuidamos el artculo de la justificacin, lo perderemos todo. El artculo de la justificacin, nuestra nica defensa, es este: Que por la fe sola, en Cristo, sin obra alguna, somos declarados justos y salvos. Este es el conocimiento principal y la verdadera sabidura de los cristianos: Que Cristo fue entregado a muerte no por nuestra justicia ni santidad, sino por nuestros pecados. Los falsos apstoles a los glatas crean que adems de la fe en Cristo, las obras de la ley de Dios tambin eran necesarias para la salvacin. Debemos ser justificados por la fe, y perder la justicia de la ley; o ser justificados por la ley, y perder la justicia de la fe. Definimos al cristiano de la siguiente manera. Un cristiano no es aquel que no tiene pecado, sino aquel a quien Dios no le imputa su pecado, mediante la fe en Cristo. Suponiendo que de veras pudieras cumplir el mandamiento: Amars a tu Dios con todo tu corazn; no seras justificado, pues nadie puede ser justificado por las obras de la ley. La fe no dice, Qu es lo que ya cumpl? Sino que la fe dice, Qu es lo que Cristo hizo? La fe confiesa que solo en Jesucristo tiene perdn de pecados y vida eterna. El Evangelio no me ensea lo que debo hacer (eso lo ensea la ley), sino lo que Jesucristo el Hijo de Dios ya hizo por m: l sufri y muri para librarme del pecado y de la muerte. El Evangelio mueve mi voluntad a recibir esto, y a creerlo. Hay algunos que predican el Evangelio, pero en la prctica, establecen la ley. Pero establecer la ley es abolir el Evangelio. No hay remedio contra las sectas, ni medio de resistirlas, a menos que no sea con este artculo de la justicia cristiana. Si perdemos este artculo, nos ser imposible resistir cualquier error o secta. Todo el que pueda juzgar debidamente entre la ley y el Evangelio, puede dar gracias a Dios, y saber que es un verdadero telogo.

Book Short Summary:

México, al igual que la mayoría de las naciones hispanoamericanas, es una nación joven, sobre todo si se compara con las de otras regiones del mundo. Si bien nuestros pueblos originarios tuvieron culturas milenarias, la entidad que hoy denominamos México se empezó a constituir apenas hace 200 años. Por ello hemos considerado útil hacer la cronología de estos dos siglos de la vida del país como una herramienta que permita visualizar el origen y duración de sus procesos históricos, para facilitar su estudio y análisis. Hemos incluido el mayor número posible de sucesos acontecidos en los estados de la República, para mostrar el alcance que tuvieron y para advertir sus efectos. Asimismo, con objeto de ubicar a lo sucedido en el contexto internacional, presentamos paralelamente una cronología comparada de los sucesos mundiales más significativos. La historia no tiene solución de continuidad; todos los hechos están relacionados entre sí y cada uno es efecto y causa a la vez. Por eso no podemos estudiar en forma aislada el pasado de México. La cronología comparada servirá al lector de marco de referencia para colocar lo hecho por los mexicanos en su dimensión real.

Book Short Summary:

La Balística es la ciencia auxiliar de la criminología, cuyo objeto de estudio versa sobre la naturaleza, utilización e identificación de las armas de fuego, así como también el alcance y dirección de los proyectiles. Esta disciplina, con el progreso de los medios técnicos, ha adquirido actualmente enorme relevancia en los peritajes de delitos cometidos con armas de fuego. Puede decirse que constituye uno de los medios más eficaces con que cuenta la autoridad, para la determinación e identificación de las armas de fuego utilizadas en los delitos. Se basa en el postulado de que cada arma de fuego imprime a los proyectiles que dispara señas particulares, merced a las cuales resulta posible la identificación de la misma. La balística estudia los movimientos de los proyectiles, dentro y fuera del arma. La primera es la balística interna y comprende estudios de presión de gases, velocidad inicial del disparo, etcétera. Desde el punto de vista médico legal tiene mayor importancia la balística externa, es decir, la rama de la balística que realiza el estudio del movimiento en el aire de un proyectil arrojado por la boca de un arma de fuego.

Book Short Summary:

Este libro refiere centralmente al conflicto entre la Iglesia Católica y los primeros gobiernos de Juan Domingo Perón, su alianza primera debida a concesiones económicas (subvenciones y salarios a docentes y dignatarios) y político-dogmáticas (Ley de Enseñanza Religiosa Obligatoria para todos los colegios), aunque ello no justificara la suerte de revisionismo de la doctrina cristiana acaecida de parte del peronismo, lo que causaría el enfrentamiento posterior. Perón persiguió a sus opositores; también la Iglesia Católica, cuando a través de sectores ultramontanos hostigó la competencia de otros cultos, incluyendo la competencia oficial sobre la re-interpretación de cuestiones doctrinarias, a partir de precisas directivas del Vaticano sobre la defensa de valores considerados esenciales, como el matrimonio religioso. Influyeron decisivamente en el enfrentamiento las obras de asistencia social y las ideas religiosas de Eva Perón, su peculiar concepción del cristianismo, la que puso en práctica con su labor político-militante; y el espontáneo mito popular gestado luego de su prematura muerte; la ausencia de libertades democráticas y el hostigamiento del régimen a partir de los sectores sociales reprimidos; también los variados manejos políticos que condujeron a la ruptura final -derogación de privilegios eclesiásticos, persecución, encarcelamiento y expulsión de prelados e incendios de iglesias-, logrando soldarse tras la iglesia católica (devenida en Partido Demócrata Cristiano) un amplio frente opositor que instauraría el imperio de una alianza oligárquico-imperialista, al defenestrar definitivamente al peronismo del poder.

Book Short Summary:

«Yo era cartero en Sevilla. Cuando se levantó Queipo de Llano, fueron a mi casa y me preguntaron: —¿Quieres a España? —Sí —contesté. —Pues venga —me dijeron—, que te está esperando en la cama y en camisón. Y de esa manera tan sencilla me vi en un camión y con un fusil en la mano». El autor ahonda en aspectos poco estudiados como el de la lealtad geográfica y las familias divididas entre los dos bandos, la frecuente comunicación a través de las trincheras, la importancia de las canciones, en ocasiones, cantadas juntos. Es la curiosa crónica de los frecuentes intercambios de todo tipo y de las actividades en común con el enemigo: comidas o favores desafiando a los jefes. Este libro también nos ofrece un decálogo del combatiente, a modo de guía para la supervivencia, teniendo en cuenta que, en muchos casos, el enemigo estaba en el propio bando, como ocurría con distintas facciones e ideologías. Por si fuera poco, todos los combatientes tuvieron enemigos comunes y terribles, como las enfermedades, las plagas, el frío, el hambre o todo tipo de incomodidades. Una obra necesaria para desmitificar aspectos de la guerra presentados como épicos sin serlo y para desvelar otros, ocultos, así como las conductas positivas y elogiables en medio de la sinrazón y sin distinguir bandos.

Book Short Summary:

A “straight-dope, tell-all account” of touring with two of the world’s greatest bands of the 60s and 70s—A “fast-moving narrative of rock-n-roll excess” (Publishers Weekly). In this all-access memoir of the psychedelic era, Sam Cutler recounts his life as tour manager for the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead—whom he calls the yin and yang of bands. After working with the Rolling Stones at their historic Hyde Park concert in 1969, Sam managed their American tour later that year, when he famously dubbed them “The Greatest Rock Band in the World.” And he was caught in the middle as their triumph took a tragic turn during a free concert at the Altamont Speedway in California, where a man in the crowd was killed by the Hell’s Angels. After that, Sam took up with the fun-loving Grateful Dead, managing their tours and finances, and taking part in their endless hijinks on the road. With intimate portraits of other stars of the time—including Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, the Band, the Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, and Eric Clapton—this memoir is a treasure trove of insights and anecdotes that bring some of rock’s greatest legends to life.

Book Short Summary:

We all know the name Nostradamus, but who was he really? Why did his predictions become so influential in Renaissance Europe and then keep resurfacing for nearly five centuries? And what does Nostradamus's endurance in the West say about us and our own world? In Nostradamus: How an Obscure Renaissance Astrologer Became the Modern Prophet of Doom, historian Stéphane Gerson takes readers on a journey back in time to explore the life and afterlife of Michel de Nostredame, the astrologer whose Prophecies have been interpreted, adopted by successive media, and eventually transformed into the Gospel of Doom for the modern age. Whenever we seem to enter a new era, whenever the premises of our worldview are questioned or imperiled, Nostradamus offers certainty and solace. In 1666, guests at posh English dinner parties discussed his quatrain about the Great Fire of London. In 1942, the Jewish writer Irène Némirovsky latched her hopes for survival to Nostradamus' prediction that the war would soon end. And on September 12, 2001, teenagers proclaimed on the streets of Brooklyn that "this guy, Nostradamus" had seen the 9/11 attacks coming. Through prodigious research in European and American archives, Gerson shows that Nostradamus — a creature of the modern West rather than a vestige from some antediluvian era — tells us more about our past and our present than about our future. In chronicling the life of this mystifying figure and the lasting fascination with his predictions, Gerson's book becomes a historical biography of a belief: the faith that we can know tomorrow and master our anxieties through the powers of an extraordinary but ever more elusive seer.

Book Short Summary:

Rage is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest. Woodward, the #1 international bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House, has uncovered the precise moment the president was warned that the Covid-19 epidemic would be the biggest national security threat to his presidency. In dramatic detail, Woodward takes readers into the Oval Office as Trump’s head pops up when he is told in January 2020 that the pandemic could reach the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 675,000 Americans. In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months—an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind—the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door.” At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president. Revisiting the earliest days of the Trump presidency, Rage reveals how Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats struggled to keep the country safe as the president dismantled any semblance of collegial national security decision making. Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents. Woodward obtained 25 never-seen personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film.” Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right.”

Book Short Summary:

El 18 de julio de 1981 un avión de carga Canadair CL-44D Swingtail de la empresa argentina Transporte Aéreo Rioplatense desapareció misteriosamente sobre la República Soviética de Armenia mientras realizaba un vuelo entre Teherán (Irán) y Larnaca (Chipre).Cuatro días después, un noticiero televisivo informó en Moscú que un avión de procedencia no identificada había ingresado en territorio de la Unión Soviética cerca de la ciudad armenia de Ereván y que, tras chocar en el aire con otro aparato soviético, se había estrellado e incendiado. Esa críptica información daba inicio a una de las historias más impactantes y menos conocidas de la aviación civil argentina: la del encubrimiento del derribo deliberado de un carguero civil que estaba siendo utilizado como transporte clandestino de armas norteamericanas entre Tel Aviv y Teherán en virtud de un acuerdo secreto celebrado entre los gobiernos iraní e israelí para burlar el embargo de material bélico impuesto por Estados Unidos a la recién formada República Islámica de Irán. Al encubrimiento soviético pronto se sumaron los gobiernos de Israel, Irán y los Estados Unidos. Todos procuraron mantener el asunto en el más cerrado de los secretos. Lo mismo hizo el gobierno argentino que se abstuvo de denunciar ante los organismos internacionales el asesinato de tres de sus ciudadanos para no resentir las relaciones diplomáticas y económicas con Moscú, por entonces el principal comprador de cereales de nuestro país. Tras cinco años de investigación, el historiador aeronáutico Gustavo Marón ha logrado exclaustrar archivos diplomáticos y documentos secretos con los que ha podido desentrañar este verdadero crimen de la Guerra Fría encubierto por cinco Estados.

Book Short Summary:

Este texto presenta al lector un análisis inédito de la dimensión iusfundamental de la prohibición constitucional de deliberar que recae sobre los miembros de la Fuerza Pública en Colombia, dimensión inexplorada y desatendida por las ramas del poder público, por las organizaciones civiles y por el pensamiento académico y político de la sociedad en su conjunto. Corresponde a una versión mejorada de la tesis de doctorado elaborada por su autor , reconocida por su tribunal evaluador con la máxima calificación. "Esta es una de las mejores tesis de doctorado que he tenido la oportunidad de dirigir. Con la incomparable originalidad, fundado en el marco conceptual de las teorías de la democracia deliberativa, el documento desarrolla una teoría jurídica y de filosofía política sobre el derecho a deliberar. Con base en ella, refuta la prohibición de deliberara y de ejercer los derechos políticos que injustificadamente se ha impuesto sobre los miembros de la Fuerza Pública en Colombia y propone una reforma institucional que reivindique la dignidad y los derechos fundamentales de estos ciudadanos. Asimismo, a lo largo de este ejercicio, el doctorado propone contribuciones de inmenso valor a la propia teoría de la democracia deliberativa. Quizás l más notable es el concepto de oportunidad equitativa". Carlos Bernal Pulido.

Book Short Summary:

Pulitzer Prize Finalist in History Winner of the Journal of the American Revolution 2016 Book of the Year Award The remarkable untold story of how the American Revolution's success depended on substantial military assistance provided by France and Spain, and places the Revolution in the context of the global strategic interests of those nations in their fight against England. In this groundbreaking, revisionist history, Larrie Ferreiro shows that at the time the first shots were fired at Lexington and Concord the colonists had little chance, if any, of militarily defeating the British. The nascent American nation had no navy, little in the way of artillery, and a militia bereft even of gunpowder. In his detailed accounts Ferreiro shows that without the extensive military and financial support of the French and Spanish, the American cause would never have succeeded. France and Spain provided close to the equivalent of $30 billion and 90 percent of all guns used by the Americans, and they sent soldiers and sailors by the thousands to fight and die alongside the Americans, as well as around the world. Ferreiro adds to the historical records the names of French and Spanish diplomats, merchants, soldiers, and sailors whose contribution is at last given recognition. Instead of viewing the American Revolution in isolation, Brothers at Arms reveals the birth of the American nation as the centerpiece of an international coalition fighting against a common enemy.

Book Short Summary:

El conjunto de estudios reunidos en el presente volumen examina la condición y las funciones desempeñadas por los eclesiásticos, su lugar, su autoridad y su poder, su dependencia y su independencia, en un sistema caracterizado por la existencia de numerosas exenciones jurídicas, producto de dispensas y de privilegios6. Se estudian también su formación, su rol pastoral, su composición, sus vinculaciones sociales y sus conflictos. Conocer al cuerpo eclesiástico en sí mismo permite reconocer su complejidad y, sobre todo, su gran diversidad, un hecho por lo común desatendido e ignorado. Asimismo, analizar esos aspectos a lo largo del tiempo y en un amplio espacio geográfico -el de las monarquías ibéricas y de sus herederos en el siglo XIX- permite valorar las pretensiones y aspiraciones de los clérigos en el gobierno de la Iglesia, para hacer de la sociedad del Antiguo Régimen -y en la medida de lo posible también del Nuevo- una sociedad cristiana.

Book Short Summary:

Since its U.S. debut a quarter-century ago, this brilliant text has set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. It is also an outstanding political economy, a social and cultural narrative of the highest quality, and perhaps the finest description of primitive capital accumulation since Marx. Rather than chronology, geography, or political successions, Eduardo Galeano has organized the various facets of Latin American history according to the patterns of five centuries of exploitation. Thus he is concerned with gold and silver, cacao and cotton, rubber and coffee, fruit, hides and wool, petroleum, iron, nickel, manganese, copper, aluminum ore, nitrates, and tin. These are the veins which he traces through the body of the entire continent, up to the Rio Grande and throughout the Caribbean, and all the way to their open ends where they empty into the coffers of wealth in the United States and Europe. Weaving fact and imagery into a rich tapestry, Galeano fuses scientific analysis with the passions of a plundered and suffering people. An immense gathering of materials is framed with a vigorous style that never falters in its command of themes. All readers interested in great historical, economic, political, and social writing will find a singular analytical achievement, and an overwhelming narrative that makes history speak, unforgettably. This classic is now further honored by Isabel Allende's inspiring introduction. Universally recognized as one of the most important writers of our time, Allende once again contributes her talents to literature, to political principles, and to enlightenment.

Book Short Summary:

In the early eighteenth century, at the peak of the Enlightenment, an unlikely team of European scientists and naval officers set out on the world’s first international, cooperative scientific expedition. Intent on making precise astronomical measurements at the Equator, they were poised to resolve one of mankind’s oldest mysteries: the true shape of the Earth. In Measure of the Earth, award-winning science writer Larrie D. Ferreiro tells the full story of the Geodesic Mission to the Equator for the very first time. It was an age when Europe was torn between two competing conceptions of the world: the followers of René Descartes argued that the Earth was elongated at the poles, even as Isaac Newton contended that it was flattened. A nation that could accurately determine the planet’s shape could securely navigate its oceans, giving it great military and imperial advantages. Recognizing this, France and Spain organized a joint expedition to colonial Peru, Spain’s wealthiest kingdom. Armed with the most advanced surveying and astronomical equipment, they would measure a degree of latitude at the Equator, which when compared with other measurements would reveal the shape of the world. But what seemed to be a straightforward scientific exercise was almost immediately marred by a series of unforeseen catastrophes, as the voyagers found their mission threatened by treacherous terrain, a deeply suspicious populace, and their own hubris. A thrilling tale of adventure, political history, and scientific discovery, Measure of the Earth recounts the greatest scientific expedition of the Enlightenment through the eyes of the men who completed it—pioneers who overcame tremendous adversity to traverse the towering Andes Mountains in order to discern the Earth’s shape. In the process they also opened the eyes of Europe to the richness of South America and paved the way for scientific cooperation on a global scale.

Book Short Summary:

“A colorful introduction to one of the most influential businessmen in history” (The New York Times Book Review), Jacob Fugger—the Renaissance banker “who wrote the playbook for everyone who keeps score with money” (Bryan Burrough, author of Days of Rage). In the days when Columbus sailed the ocean and Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, a German banker named Jacob Fugger became the richest man in history. Fugger lived in Germany at the turn of the sixteenth century, the grandson of a peasant. By the time he died, his fortune amounted to nearly two percent of European GDP. In an era when kings had unlimited power, Fugger dared to stare down heads of state and ask them to pay back their loans—with interest. It was this coolness and self-assurance, along with his inexhaustible ambition, that made him not only the richest man ever, but a force of history as well. Before Fugger came along it was illegal under church law to charge interest on loans, but he got the Pope to change that. He also helped trigger the Reformation and likely funded Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe. His creation of a news service gave him an information edge over his rivals and customers and earned Fugger a footnote in the history of journalism. And he took Austria’s Habsburg family from being second-tier sovereigns to rulers of the first empire where the sun never set. “Enjoyable…readable and fast-paced” (The Wall Street Journal), The Richest Man Who Ever Lived is more than a tale about the most influential businessman of all time. It is a story about palace intrigue, knights in battle, family tragedy and triumph, and a violent clash between the one percent and everybody else. “The tale of Fugger’s aspiration, ruthlessness, and greed is riveting” (The Economist).

Book Short Summary:

Critical Medical Anthropology presents inspiring work from scholars doing and engaging with ethnographic research in or from Latin America, addressing themes that are central to contemporary Critical Medical Anthropology (CMA). This includes issues of inequality, embodiment of history, indigeneity, non-communicable diseases, gendered violence, migration, substance abuse, reproductive politics and judicialisation, as these relate to health. The collection of ethnographically informed research, including original theoretical contributions, reconsiders the broader relevance of CMA perspectives for addressing current global healthcare challenges from and of Latin America. It includes work spanning four countries in Latin America (Mexico, Brazil, Guatemala and Peru) as well as the trans-migratory contexts they connect and are defined by. By drawing on diverse social practices, it addresses challenges of central relevance to medical anthropology and global health, including reproduction and maternal health, sex work, rare and chronic diseases, the pharmaceutical industry and questions of agency, political economy, identity, ethnicity, and human rights.

Book Short Summary:

This volume explores ethnicity and gender developments in relation to the military. In some countries, the armed forces have a long history in responding to ethnic diversity, while elsewhere it has come up only recently as a policy issue. An even-handed representation of ethnic minorities in the military is recognized as crucial for enhancing its social legitimacy and professional quality. The same can be said about the integration of women in the military, which during a few decades across the board has grown into more than just another issue of personnel policies. Indeed with regard to gender, the symbolism and sensitivities surrounding core identities are at stake – as with the presence of gays and lesbians in the military. Written by experts in the field, the chapters cover fourteen countries around the world: the USA, Canada, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, South-Africa, Eritrea, India, Israel, Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. Taken together, the armed forces of these countries offer a fascinating mix of similarities and differences in the ways they try to manage cultural diversity. Cultural Diversity in the Armed Forces will be of interest to students and scholars of military studies, sociology, gender and political science.

Book Short Summary:

Democratic countries vary widely in the extent to which the administration of the electoral process facilitates voter participation, showing a great deal of variation in everything from voter registration to the casting of ballots. This book is the first systematic study to investigate why it is easier to vote in some democracies than in others. It develops the concept of election administration inclusiveness, which considers all of the administrative requirements and procedures that a citizen confronts in exercising his or her right to vote. It then draws on in-depth case studies from Central America and data from Latin America more broadly to address how political parties and other actors interact in constructing election administration rules and procedures. Using a theoretical framework centred on electoral threat, party capacity, and electoral management body composition, the author identifies multiple pathways to inclusive and restrictive election administration. This book will be of key interest to students and scholars of elections, democracy studies, Latin American politics, and more broadly comparative politics and law.

Book Short Summary:

The third and final installment in Mario Puzo's epic chronicle of the Corleone crime family—one of the most enduring lineages in American literature and cinema—achieves a stunning crescendo with a story that imagines the role of the Mafia in the assassination of a young, charismatic president. In The Godfather's Revenge—authorized by the Puzo Estate—Mark Winegardner moves the Corleone family onto the biggest stage of all: the intersection of organized crime and national politics. A subordinate to Michael Corleone, New Orleans underboss Carlo Tramonti is publicly humiliated when the US Attorney General—President Danny Shea's brother—has him arrested and deported to Colombia. Tramonti eventually returns, hell-bent on settling scores, and triggers a series of events destined to change the course of American history. Corleone, though haunted by the death of his brother Fredo, knows that this is no time for weakness—and so, with fearless consigliere Tom Hagen leading the way, a new path for the future is forged. As the dramatic twists of The Godfather's Revenge take the reader from Las Vegas to Miami to New Orleans, from the power alleys of Washington, DC, to the remote jungles of Colombia, the puppet master behind the curtain remains Michael Corleone, the tortured prodigal son who is determined to redefine his family's legacy and make his father—the original Godfather—proud.

Book Short Summary:

Christopher Columbus returned to Europe in the final days of 1500, ending his third voyage to the Indies not in triumph but in chains. Seeking to justify his actions and protect his rights, he began to compile biblical texts and excerpts from patristic writings and medieval theology in a manuscript known as the Book of Prophecies. This unprecedented collection was designed to support his vision of the discovery of the Indies as an important event in the process of human salvation - a first step toward the liberation of Jerusalem and the Holy Land from Muslim domination. This work is part of a twelve-volume series produced by U.C.L.A.'s Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies which involved the collaboration of some forty scholars over the course of fourteen years. In this volume of the series, Roberto Rusconi has written a complete historical introduction to the Book of Prophecies, describing the manuscript's history and analyzing its principal themes. His edition of the documents, the only modern one, includes a complete critical apparatus and detailed commentary, while the facing-page English translations allow Columbus's work to be appreciated by the general public and scholars alike.

Book Short Summary:

Madrid became one of the key symbols of Republican resistance to General Franco during the Spanish Civil War following the Nationalists' failure to take the city in the winter of 1936-7. Yet despite the defiant cries of 'No pasarán', they did eventually pass on 28 March 1939. This book examines the consequences in Madrid of Franco's unconditional victory in the Spanish Civil War. Using recently available archival material, this study shows how the punishment of the vanquished was based on a cruel irony - Republicans, not the military rebels of July 1936, were held responsible for the fratricidal conflict. Military tribunals handed out sentences for the crime of 'military rebellion'; mere passivity towards the Nationalists before 1939 was not only made a civil offence under the Law of Political Responsibilities but could cause dismissal from work; and freemasons and Communists, specifically blamed for the Civil War, were criminalized by decree in March 1940. However, contrary to much that has been written on the subject, the post-war Francoist repression was not exterminatory. Genocide did not take place in post-war Madrid. While a minimum of 3113 judicial executions took place between 1939 and 1944, death sentences were largely based on accusations of participation in 'blood crimes' that occured in Madrid in 1936. Moreover, and unlike most other accounts of the Francoist political violence, this book is concerned with the question of when and why mass repression came to an end. It shows that the sheer numbers of cases opened against Republican 'rebels', and the use of complex pre-war bureaucratic procedures to process them, produced a crisis that was only resolved by decisions taken by the Franco regime in 1940-1 to abandon much of the repressive system. By 1944, mass repression had come to an end.

The book will be of interest for social scientists, political actors and social activists involved in the fight against corruption in Latin America by providing in-depth analyses of the topic and discussing how best to pursue anti-corruption efforts through civil society actions, judicial endeavors, legal shifts, or elections.

On Collective Memory

Book Short Summary:

How do we use our mental images of the present to reconstruct our past? Maurice Halbwachs (1877-1945) addressed this question for the first time in his work on collective memory, which established him as a major figure in the history of sociology. This volume, the first comprehensive English-language translation of Halbwach's writings on the social construction of memory, fills a major gap in the literature on the sociology of knowledge. Halbwachs' primary thesis is that human memory can only function within a collective context. Collective memory, Halbwachs asserts, is always selective; various groups of people have different collective memories, which in turn give rise to different modes of behavior. Halbwachs shows, for example, how pilgrims to the Holy Land over the centuries evoked very different images of the events of Jesus' life; how wealthy old families in France have a memory of the past that diverges sharply from that of the nouveaux riches; and how working class construction of reality differ from those of their middle-class counterparts. With a detailed introduction by Lewis A. Coser, this translation will be an indispensable source for new research in historical sociology and cultural memory. Lewis A. Coser is Distinguished Professor of Sociology Emeritus at the State University of New York and Adjunct Professor of Sociology at Boston College.
