This volume examines the promotion and defense of democracy in the Americas. Taking the Inter-American Democratic Charter (IADC) of 2001 as a baseline, it charts the evolution of the issue over the past decade. Although it considers historical antecedents, the main focus of the book is on key instances of promotion and defense of democracy in the Western hemisphere since the adoption of the IADC. It analyzes democratic norms, norm enforcement mechanisms and how they work in practice. Special attention is paid to the 2009 Honduras coup, the issues raised by it and the debates that surrounded it, as this was the first instance in which a member state was suspended in accordance with the IADC. Three central themes guide the analysis: the nature of challenges to democracy in Latin America; the role of regional organizations as democracy promoters; and the transformation of Inter-American relations. The book unveils the key achievements and limitations of the OAS in the field and will be of great interest to students and scholars of democratization, US-Latin American relations, international relations of Latin-America and international organizations.

  • Part I. The Middle Passage and the AFrican Americas Project: 1. Keith Morrison : Middle Passage / Julie L. McGee
  • Part II. Slavery, Migration, and Racial Identity: 2. The African Diaspora in the Americas : the Caribbean Dimension / Franklin W. Knight; 3. Afro-Antillean Presence in the Latin American Melting Pot / Carla Guerrón Montero; 4. Puerto Ricans in the Harlem Riot of 1935 / Lorrin Thomas; 5. Rethinking "Racial Democracy" : Perspectives from Black Thinkers in Twentieth-Century Brazil / Paulina L. Alberto
  • Part III. Africa in the Arts: Migration, Improvisation, Exchange: 6. Pearl Fishing in the Caribbean : Early Images of Slavery and Forced Migration in the Americas / Mónica Domínguez-Torres; 7. Improvisation in the Danzón and its Ties to Early New Orleans Jazz / Robin Moore; 8. Afrochic : Africa in the Modernist Imagination / Camara Dia Holloway; 9. True Blood : Colorblindness, Blanqueamiento, and Vampire Ethnicity in Castro's Cuba / Phillip Penix-Tadsen; 10. Introspection and Projection in Cuban Art / Colette Gaiter; 11. Hearing Reggaeton's African-American Address / Wayne Marshall; 12. Black British and Other African Diaspora Artists Visualizing Slavery / Eddie Chambers
  • Part IV. Black American Studies in the Global Humanities: 13. Race and Representation in the Digital Humanities : an Inter-American Case Study / Ifeoma Nwankwo; 14. Black American Studies at the University of Delaware : Education Across the Lines / Carol Henderson.
Scholars of the African Americas are sometimes segregated from one another by region or period, by language, or by discipline. Bringing together essays on fashion, the visual arts, film, literature, and history, this volume shows how our understanding of the African diaspora in the Americas can be enriched by crossing disciplinary boundaries to recontextualize images, words, and thoughts as part of a much greater whole. Diaspora describes dispersion, but also the seeding, sowing, or scattering of spores that take root and grow, maturing and adapting within new environments. The examples of diasporic cultural production explored in this volume reflect on loss and dispersal, but they also constitute expansive and dynamic intellectual and artistic production, neither wholly African nor wholly American (in the hemispheric sense), whose resonance deeply inflects all of the Americas. African Diaspora in the Cultures of Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States represents a call for multidisciplinary, collaborative and complex approaches to the subject of the African diaspora.

  • Chapter 1. From Ruins to Heritage Places.- Chapter 2. The Ancient Moche of Trujillo.- Chapter 3. Urban Development and Archaeology at Trujillo.- Chapter 4. Why Preserve the Minor Sites? Identity, Heritage and Urban Life Quality.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Archaeological Heritage in a Modern Urban Landscape evaluates issues about the preservation, social role and management of archaeological sites in the Trujillo area, north coast of Peru, specifically those of the Moche culture (100-800 AD). Moche was one of the great civilizations of ancient Peru, with spectacular ceremonial adobe architecture and settlements distributed across a landscape formed by coastal valleys and one of the largest deserts of South America. In the last decades political and economic changes have brought rural migrations to the city of Trujillo and nearby zones, causing the emergence of extensive new communities in the margins of the metropolis. And although Trujillo's Moche heritage has become a symbol of regional identity, most local Moche sites are under siege because of urban development. This book offers a new perspective on the development of modern communities settled beside archaeological sites and contributes to improving best practices in the management of archaeological sites and preservation in an urban setting.

  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
The volume contributes to disrupt the old grand narrative of cultural contact and colonialism in Spanish and Portuguese America in a wide and complete sense. This edited volume aims at exploring contact archaeology in the modern era. Archaeology has been exploring the interaction of peoples and cultures from early times, but only in the last few decades have cultural contact and material world been recognized as crucial elements to understanding colonialism and the emergence of modernity. Modern colonialism studies pose questions in need of broader answers. This volume explores these answers in Spanish and Portuguese America, comprising present-day Latin America and formerly Spanish territories now part of the United States. The volume addresses studies of the particular features of Spanish-Portuguese colonialism, as well as the specificities of Iberian colonization, including hybridism, religious novelties, medieval and modern social features, all mixed in a variety of ways unique and so different from other areas, particularly the Anglo-Saxon colonial thrust. Cultural contact studies offer a particularly in-depth picture of the uniqueness of Latin America in terms of its cultural mixture. This volume particularly highlights local histories, revealing novelty, diversity, and creativity in the conformation of the new colonial realities, as well as presenting Latin America as a multicultural arena, with astonishing heterogeneity in thoughts, experiences, practices, and, material worlds.

  • Introduction: Approaching the Latin American Middle-Class Chapter 1: San Felipe and the Transformation of the Social and Urban Space Chapter 2: Trajectories: Sanfelipanos Merge in Place Chapter 3: Boundaries: Sanfelipanos Evaluate their Neighbors Chapter 4: Controlling Common Space: Making Local Power Work Conclusions: Groups, Classes and Generations.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
In the last decades, the Latin American middle class is growing in size while becoming more heterogeneous. Sustained economic growth explains its increasing size, but behind its heterogeneity there is not only the diversification of lifestyles, but also the crystallization of a large process of upward social mobility of second and third generation migrants to capital cities and their incorporation into middle-class positions. In the last decades, these individuals are now part of the different spheres of socialization formerly occupied by the traditional middle class: private schools, college and universities, middle-class jobs and occupations, and traditional middle-class neighborhoods. To explore the genesis of this phenomenon and its consequences, the author studies Residential San Felipe, a quintessential traditional middle-class neighborhood in Lima, Peru, which is currently receiving an important influx of upwardly mobile families. The case of San Felipe shows that inside the contemporary middle class a strong boundary between the "traditional middle class" and the "new middle class" permeates the everyday life of the neighborhood. However, though this difference between the "traditional" and "new middle class" is recognized by all residents of San Felipe, its relevance as well as the elements at the basis of this distinction varies.

This book provides a theory and evidence to explain the initial decision of governments to adopt a conditional cash transfer program (the most prominent type of anti-poverty program currently in operation in Latin America), and whether such programs are insulated from political manipulations or not. Ana Lorena De La O shows that whether presidents limit their own discretion or not has consequences for the survival of policies, their manipulation, and how effective they are in improving the lives of the poor. This book is the first of its kind to present evidence from all Latin American CCTs.
