  • The True History of The Conquest of New Spainby Bernal Diaz Del Castillo; Janet Burke; Ted Humphrey

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2012; US$ 15.50

    This rugged new translation—the first entirely new English translation in half a century and the only one based on the most recent critical edition of the Guatemalan MS—allows Diaz to recount, in his own battle-weary and often cynical voice, the achievements, stratagems, and frequent cruelty of Hernando Cortes and his men as they set... more...

  • On the Periphery of the Peripheryby Sam R. Sweitz

    Springer 2011; US$ 149.00

    This book examines from an archaeological perspective the social and economic changes that took place in Yucatan, Mexico beginning in the 18th century, as the region became increasingly articulated within global networks of exchange. Of particular interest is the formation and ultimate supremacy of the hacienda system in Yucatan and the effect that... more...

  • Tschiffely's Rideby Aimé Tschiffely

    Skyhorse Publishing 2013; US$ 14.95

    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...

  • Die Andenby Axel Borsdorf; Christoph Stadel

    Springer 2013; US$ 79.99

    Bodenschätze, die überwältigenden Naturschönheiten,  die Vielfalt scheinbar intakter Kulturen, wirtschaftliche Vielfalt - das sind Stichwörter, die man gemeinhin mit den Anden verbindet. Erstmals seit Jahrzehnten wird eine Gesamtschau eines Erdraums  versucht, der durch die längste Gebirgskette der Erde... more...

  • Through the Brazilian Wildernessby Theodore Roosevelt

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Theodore Roosevelt's epic hunting adventures and journeys of exploration throughout North America are the stuff of legend, but what some readers may not know is that Roosevelt's insatiable love of adventure also took him to other parts of the world. This thoroughly entertaining account of Roosevelt's travels in Brazil is infused with the... more...

  • Wild Coastby John Gimlette

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 13.31

    Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2012 Between the Orinoco and the Amazon lies a fabulous forested land, barely explored. Much of Guiana seldom sees sunlight, and new species are often tumbling out of the dark trees. Shunned by the conquistadors, it was left to others to carve into colonies. Guyana, Suriname and Guyane Française are what... more...

  • Erdbeeren und Piratenby Julia Angster

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2012; US$ 63.79

    Die Royal Navy war im frühen 19. Jahrhundert auf allen Weltmeeren präsent.

Die Vermessung der Welt, die »Verbesserung« der Natur und die Eingriffe in... more...

  • Lateinamerika und die USAby Stefan Rinke; Uwe Puschner

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2012; US$ 15.94

    Beim Gedanken an den amerikanischen Kontinent hat man sofort die Vorstellung von der Supermacht USA und ihrem lateinamerikanischen Hinterhof präsent. Vergessen wird dabei leicht, dass die USA einstmals der ?Wilde Westen? waren, während Mittel- und Südamerika auf alten Hochkulturen aufbauten und die Schatzkammern Spaniens und Portugals waren. Stefan... more...
