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.

  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
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.

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.

Despite the fact that countries transitioned to democracy, many citizens residing in peripheral regions continue to live under undemocratic rule. Democrats and Autocrats studies the existence of subnational undemocratic regimes (SURs) alongside national democratic regimes in Latin America. The book fundamentally challenges the assumption that there is one single pathway to subnational undemocratic regime (SUR) continuity within countries. It shows instead the existence of multiple, within-country, pathways that lead to SUR continuity. The study is premised on the notion that SURs within countries not only differ among each other but that they maintain different relations with the federal government, which is why they are reproduced differently. Using a multi-method approach, Democrats and Autocrats shows that, within-country, alternative trajectories of SUR continuity in Argentina and Mexico result first and foremost from the capacity (or lack thereof) of national incumbents to wield power over SURs and subnational autocrats. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the book argues that there are multiple pathways for SURs reproduction within democratic countries. These pathways, in turn, are determined by a specific combination of intergovernmental interactions, all of which are shaped by institutional and economic national and subnational variables. The explanation of SUR continuity advanced in this book is tested in contemporary Argentina and Mexico using a multi-method approach. Both quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as cross-national and within-country comparisons are employed to test pathways of SUR continuity in two of Latin America's largest countries. Transformations in Governance is a major new academic book series from Oxford University Press. It is designed to accommodate the impressive growth of research in comparative politics, international relations, public policy, federalism, environmental and urban studies concerned with the dispersion of authority from central states up to supranational institutions, down to subnational governments, and side-ways to public-private networks. It brings together work that significantly advances our understanding of the organization, causes, and consequences of multilevel and complex governance. The series is selective, containing annually a small number of books of exceptionally high quality by leading and emerging scholars. The series targets mainly single-authored or co-authored work, but it is pluralistic in terms of disciplinary specialization, research design, method, and geographical scope. Case studies as well as comparative studies, historical as well as contemporary studies, and studies with a national, regional, or international focus are all central to its aims. Authors use qualitative, quantitative, formal modeling, or mixed methods. A trade mark of the books is that they combine scholarly rigour with readable prose and an attractive production style. The series is edited by Liesbet Hooghe and Gary Marks of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and the VU Amsterdam, and Walter Mattli of the University of Oxford.

What makes for effective cooperation between government and business in designing industrial policy? Core research questions on the institutional design of optimal arrangements focus on three main functions: 1) maximizing the benefits of information exchange; 2) motivating participation through authoritative allocation; and 3) minimizing unproductive rent seeking. The book analyses these functions theoretically and empirically in a range of recent experiences in Latin America. Across the region, countries with more positive experiences of public-private collaboration tend to have more pragmatic governments and better organized and informally networked private sectors. Effective cooperation also depends on the macro context, in particular the nature of the political system and the alternative avenues it provides for business influence, especially through parties, networks and appointments, the media, and campaign finance. Lastly, the structure and strategies of big domestic businesses - mostly diversified, family-owned business groups - affects their preferences and interest in collaborating in industrial policy.

What explains that the Latin American subcontinent, which has gone further than other developing regions in the process of economic liberalization, has had such disappointing growth performance over the past 30 years? Why do certain countries in Latin America such as Dominican Republic, Chile, and Peru demonstrate respectable growth, while Mexico and Brazil continue to struggle? In other words, why do some economies grow faster than others? Conventional explanations emphasize the role of institutional factors, human capital, or microeconomic factors, but these explanations do not address the Latin American paradox. In terms of institutions, human capital endowment, and economic liberalization, Latin American countries have been converging rapidly over the past thirty years. At the same time, growth rates after the lost decade of the 1980s have been diverging. Development Macroeconomics in Latin America and Mexico brings the attention of academics, practitioners, and policy makers to the neglected macroeconomic factors that can account for both the unsatisfactory average growth performance of Latin American and the diversity around this average. This exciting new volume enriches the debate on the macroeconomic reform agenda that could revive the high growth rates that the region achieved between the post war period and the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s.

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.

  • Raid : the second great migration and the culture of resistance
  • Raiding the schools : the riven soul of Arizona
  • The usual suspects : the raid in New Bedford
  • Dreaming the dream : the next generation
  • Raids gone global : genocide in Guatemala & wars in Mexico
  • The rocky road of reform
  • Legality & language as cultural weapons
  • Hope for the dream chasers.
Illegal immigration continues to roil American politics. The right-wing media stir up panic over "anchor babies, " job stealing, welfare dependence, bilingualism, al-Qaeda terrorists disguised as Latinos, even a conspiracy by Latinos to "retake" the Southwest. State and local governments have passed more than 300 laws that attempt to restrict undocumented immigrants' access to hospitals, schools, food stamps, and driver's licenses. Federal immigration authorities stage factory raids that result in arrests, deportations, and broken families -- and leave owners scrambling to fill suddenly open jobs. The DREAM Act, which would grant permanent residency to high school graduates brought here as minors, is described as "amnesty." And yet polls show that a majority of Americans support some kind of path to citizenship for those here illegally. What is going on? In this book, John Tirman shows how the resistance to immigration in America is more cultural than political. Although cloaked in language about jobs and secure borders, the cultural resistance to immigration expresses a fear that immigrants are changing the dominant white, Protestant, "real American" culture. Tirman describes the "raid mentality" of our response to immigration, which seeks violent solutions for a social phenomenon. He considers the culture clash over Chicano ethnic studies in Tucson, examines the consequences of an immigration raid in New Bedford, and explores the civil rights activism of young "Dreamers." The current "round them up, deport them, militarize the border" approach, Tirman shows, solves nothing.
