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.

  • (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.

Since the late-1990s much of Latin America has experienced an uneven and contradictory turn to the Left in the electoral arena. At the same time, there has been a rejuvenation of Marxist critiques of political economy. Drawing on the expertise of Latin American, North American, and European scholars, this volume offers cutting-edge theoretical explorations of trends in the region, as well as in-depth case studies of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Venezuela. Essays in the volume focus on changes to class formation in Latin America and offer new insights into the state-form, exploring the complex relationship between state and market in contexts of late capitalist development, particularly in countries endowed with incredible natural resource wealth.

This edited volume aims at exploring a most relevant but somewhat neglected subject in archaeological studies, especially within Latin America: maroons and runaway settlements. Scholarship on runaways is well established and prolific in ethnology, anthropology and history, but it is still in its infancy in archaeology. A small body of archaeological literature on maroons exists for other regions, but no single volume discusses the subject in depth, including diverse eras and geographical areas within Latin American contexts. Thus, a central aim of the volume is to gather together some of the most active, Latin American maroon archaeologists in a single volume. This volume will thus become an important reference book on the subject and will also foster further archaeology research on maroon settlements. The introduction and comments by senior scholars provide a wide-ranging and comprehensive analysis of runaway archaeology that will help to indicate the global importance of this research.

A steadily growing repository containing a previously unavailable subset of Princeton's Latin American Ephemera Collection as well as newly acquired materials being digitized and added on an ongoing basis. The bulk of the ephemera currently found in the Digital Archive of Latin American and Caribbean Ephemera was originally created around the turn of the 20th century and after, with some originating as recently as within the last year. The formats or genre most commonly included are pamphlets, flyers, leaflets, brochures, posters, stickers, and postcards. These items were originally created by a wide array of social activists, non-governmental organizations, government agencies, political parties, public policy think tanks, and other types of organizations in order to publicize their views, positions, agendas, policies, events, and activities. The vast majority are rare, hard-to-find primary sources unavailable elsewhere.

Although the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement to address global climate change, has been regarded by many as an unsuccessful treaty both politically and environmentally, it stands as one of the world's few truly global agreements. Why did such a diverse group of countries decide to sign and/or ratify the treaty? Why did they choose to do so at different times and in different ways? What explains their foreign policy behavior? Amy Below's book builds off the increasing significance of climate change and uses the Kyoto Protocol as a case study to analyze foreign policy decision making in Latin America. Below's study takes a regional perspective in order to examine why countries in Latin America made disparate foreign policy choices when they were faced with the same decision. The book looks at the decisions in Argentina, Mexico, and Venezuela via a process-tracing method. Below uses information obtained from primary and secondary documents and elite interviews to help reconstruct the processes, and augments her reconstruction with a content analysis of Conference of the Parties speeches by presidents and country delegates. The book complies with convention in the field by arguing that systemic, national and individual-level factors simultaneously impact foreign policy decisions, but makes the additional claim that role theory most accurately accounts for relationships between variables. Role Theory and Environmental Foreign Policy in Latin America considers a variety of factors on individual, national, and international levels of analysis, and show that the foreign policy decisions are best viewed through the prism of role theory. The book also draws conclusions about the value of role theory in general and about environmental foreign policy decisions in developing countries, which will be of value to both policy-makers and academics.

  • 1. Gramsci, Hegemony, and Global Governance 2. The FTAA Negotiations: Context and History 3. The FTAA Negotiations: Context and History 4. Venezuela and the Evolution of the FTAA 5. Brazil and the FTAA Negotiations.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
The book explores how the collapse of the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) negotiations in 2005 was rooted in a "crisis of authority" with respect to the leadership of the United States in the Americas. This "crisis of authority" was prompted by growing opposition in the Americas to the neo-liberal reforms that had been promoted by Washington since the 1980s. Marcel Nelson demonstrates how the FTAA became the focal point of this opposition from a growing chorus of leftist heads of state in Latin America to the detriment of the negotiations. A neo-Gramscian theoretical framework will be used to frame the manner in which the "crisis of authority" came to the fore in the states of the Americas and in the institutional structure established to negotiate the FTAA.

After the 1960s, rapid urbanization in developing regions in Latin America, Africa, and Asia was marked by the expansion of low-income "irregular" settlements that developed informally and which, by the 2000s, often constituted between 20-60 percent of the built-up area of metropolitan areas and other large cities. There has been a variety of research directed at the housing policies involved with these informal settlements, yet apart from the activities of Latin American Housing Network (LAHN), there has been minimal attention directed at the earliest portion of settlements that formed some 25-40 years ago that now form a large part of the intermediate ring of the cities. This volume breaks new ground by opening up a new generation of housing policy in Latin America cities with broader application for other developing countries. Its editors bring unique perspectives: Peter Ward coordinates the LAHN, and Edith Jimenez and Maria Di Virgilio are founding members of the network who have led project teams in Guadalajara and Buenos Aires respectively. Developed as a coordinated collaborative research project, the volume encompasses nine Latin American countries and eleven cities. The editors and contributors offer original perspectives on the policy challenges facing much of the low income housing of Latin American cities; document the changing nature of the "first suburbs"; present comparative survey findings in order to better understand the types of consolidated settlements that exist today; describe the physical nature of the dwellings themselves; identify the reasons behind market dysfunction that impede the operation of consolidated housing informal markets in Latin American cities; and outline a new generation of housing policies that will support the processes of densification, rehabilitation, and regeneration of these settlements. This book is the first and only composite overview of the research findings and advocacy of the generic policy lines that the LAHN identifies as central to a new generation of housing strategies and approaches. Researchers and practitioners working on housing theory, housing policy, comparative spatial and sociological research, and urban development issues will find the book highly significant.

Ces textes abordent diversement la question des stratégies et des équilibres socio-ethniques élaborés par les normes gouvernementales, les pratiques des groupes et des individus, qui facilitent ou contraignent l'action. Loin des images et des récits que véhicule la légende noire à l'égard de l'Espagne et des Espagnols, les analyses produites lesquelles invitent à considérer ensemble conflits et coopérations valorisent la variété et la richesse des dynamiques relationnelles visant à éviter situations de blocage et exclusion."--P.

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 trends, this text offers glimpses of the Latin American past through carefully selected stories. Each chapter introduces students to a specific historical issue, which in turn raises questions about the history of the Americas as a whole. Key themes include: * Race and Citizenship * Inequality and Economic Development * Politics and Rights * Social and Cultural Movements * Globalization * Violence and Civil Society The short, thematic chapters are bolstered by the inclusion of relevant primary documents - many translated for the first time - including advertisements and posters, song lyrics, political speeches, government documents, and more. Each chapter also includes timelines highlighting important dates and suggestions for further reading. Richly informative and highly readable, Latin America since Independence provides compelling accounts of this region's past and present. This second edition brings the story up to the present, with revised chapters, new primary documents and images, and a new 'At A Glance' feature that uses a selection of maps and tables to illuminate key issues like the economy, the environment, and demographics. For additional information and classroom resources please visit the Latin America since Independence companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/dawson.

This is the only book to extensively investigate the attitudes and behaviours of Latin Americans based on the Latin American Public Opinion Project's (LAPOP) AmericasBarometer surveys. Through its analysis of data on eighteen countries, the book systematically and comparatively evaluates norms, attitudes, and opinions concerning democracy and its consolidation. Beginning with an introduction of political culture and its scholarship, it examines democratic and authoritarian norms, explores how citizens relate to the political world, and considers implications for democratic stability. It then examines key behavioural outcomes in politics, such as in attitudes toward gays and fear of crime, and how political culture changes over time. Case studies highlight how these factors come together in particular cases. The findings reveal a complex Latin America with distinct political cultures. This book joins rigorous analysis with clear graphic presentation and extensive examples. Readers learn about public opinion research, engage with further questions for analysis, and have access to data, an expansive bibliography, and links to appendices.

What does it mean to be middle-class in Latin America? How is the middle class changing? What are the implications for economic development? Many look to the emergence of a middle class as a sign of Latin America's success in reducing poverty and inequality, a claim this book confirms. Political and business leaders hope that a booming middle class will drive economic growth and support progressive but not revolutionary political platforms, lending economic and democratic stability to countries long wracked by volatility. The contributors document the remarkable emergence of this middle group in Latin America (whose measurement turns out not to be an easy task). However, the authors consider it premature to declare middle-class Latin Americans ready to serve as a motor for economic growth or guarantors of democratic consolidation. Smart policies can nevertheless protect middle classes from poverty and allow them to fulfil the hopes invested in them.

What does it mean to be middle-class in Latin America? How is the middle class changing? What are the implications for economic development? Many look to the emergence of a middle class as a sign of Latin America's success in reducing poverty and inequality, a claim this book confirms. Political and business leaders hope that a booming middle class will drive economic growth and support progressive but not revolutionary political platforms, lending economic and democratic stability to countries long wracked by volatility. The contributors document the remarkable emergence of this middle group in Latin America (whose measurement turns out not to be an easy task). However, the authors consider it premature to declare middle-class Latin Americans ready to serve as a motor for economic growth or guarantors of democratic consolidation. Smart policies can nevertheless protect middle classes from poverty and allow them to fulfil the hopes invested in them.

  • Citizen insecurity and human rights : toward the deconstruction of the security discourse and a new criminal law / Ramiro Ávila Santamaria.
Over the past two decades, legal thought and practice in Latin America has changed dramatically: new constitutions or constitutional reforms have marked a widespread transition to democracy, fundamental institutional innovations have been introduced, and processes of globalization have had profound impacts on Latin American law. Law and Society in Latin America: A New Map offers the first systematic assessment by leading Latin American legal scholars of the momentous legal and political transformations in the region. Together with the liberalization of national economies, there has been an intensive importation of legal ideas and institutions - from the commercial and financial regulations promoted by the World Bank and World Trade Organization, to the adversarial criminal justice system inspired by the United States. Meanwhile, the globalization of human rights has had a fundamental impact - as demonstrated by the multiplication of laws, institutions, and public debates about the rights of groups that historically faced discrimination, and about the punishment of serious human rights violations committed by past or present authoritarian governments. These and other processes have not only radically altered the institutional landscape of the region, but also produced academic and practical innovations that are of global interest. Painting a portrait of the new Latin American legal thought for an international audience, Law and Society in Latin America: A New Map will be of particular interest to those studying law and Latin American studies.
