  • Latin America since Independenceby Alexander Dawson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 59.95

    What is Latin America, after all? While histories of the "other" Americas often link disparate histories through revolutionary or tragic narratives, Latin America since Independence begins with the assumption that our efforts to imagine a common past for nearly thirty countries are deeply problematic. Without losing sight of chronology or regional... more...

  • By-Ways of Warby James Jeffrey Roche

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Today, the term "filibuster" refers to a tactic used by loquacious lawmakers who seek to prevent a vote by delivering marathon-length speeches.

    From the southeast coast of South America through an expanse of Peruvian sands en route to the West Coast, then onward through Central American jungles and rainforest, and finally to New York, Tschiffely?s journey was considered impossible and absurd by many newspaper writers in 1925. However, after two and a half years on horseback with two of... more...

  • Stad en staatby Mogens Herman Hansen; Frits Naerebout

    Amsterdam University Press 2006; US$ 11.25

    Polis (meervoud: poleis) is het Oudgriekse woord voor stad, voor staat en voor de combinatie van die twee: een stadstaat. In de Oudheid leefden de meeste Grieken in zo'n stadstaat. De polis als staatsvorm of als type samenleving vormt de grondslag voor de gehele Griekse cultuur. De Griekse cultuur valt alleen te begrijpen als men de polis begrijpt.... more...
