This sixth edition of a classic book of readings combines the best of the previous collections with new material on the colonial period and on recent developments in Latin American politics and society, including a penetrating look at the neoliberal program of Argentine President Carlos Menem; a survey of Brazilian politics, economy, and society; and a close-up view of life in Cuba as it faces the greatest crisis in its history. The sixth edition of Latin American Civilization (the third published with a Westview Press imprint) is a compact update of a classic book of readings that teachers and students of Latin American history have used and appreciated since its first appearance in 1955. This latest edition combines the best of the previous collections with new material on the colonial period and coverage of recent developments in Latin American politics and society. The new pieces include an assessment of the impact of Argentinas neoliberal program under Menem; a survey of Brazilian politics, economy, and society; and a close-up view of life in Cuba as it faces the greatest crisis in its history.

Postcolonial theory has developed mainly in the U.S. academy, and it has focused chiefly on nineteenth and twentieth-century colonization and decolonization processes in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. Colonialism in Latin America originated centuries earlier, in the transoceanic adventures from which European modernity itself was born. It differs from later manifestations of European expansionism in other ways as well. Coloniality at Large brings together classic and new reflections on the theoretical implications of colonialism in Latin America. By pointing out its particular characteristics, the contributors highlight some of the philosophical and ideological blind-spots of contemporary postcolonial theory as they offer a thorough analysis of that theory's applicability to Latin America's past and present.Written by internationally renowned scholars based in Latin America, the United States, and Europe, the essays reflect multiple disciplinary and ideological perspectives. Some are translated into English for the first time. The essays include theoretical reflections, literary criticism, and historical and ethnographic case studies focused on Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, the Andes, and the Caribbean. Contributors highlight the relation of Marxist thought, dependency theory, and liberation theology to Latin Americans' experience of and resistance to coloniality, and they emphasize the critique of Occidentalism and modernity as central to any understanding of the colonial project.Analyzing the many ways that Latin Americans have resisted imperialism and sought emancipation and sovereignty over several centuries, they delve into topics including violence, identity, otherness, memory, heterogeneity, and language. Contributors also explore Latin American intellectuals' ambivalence about, or objections to, the 'post' in postcolonial; to many, globalization and neoliberalism are the contemporary guises of colonialism in Latin America.

"Dans toute société, il existe une "classe" dirigeante, qu'elle soit politique, économique, religieuse, etc., constituée de ce que l'on nomme traditionnellement les élites, qui se différencient du reste de la population. Cette dichotomie peut se fonder sur différents facteurs comme, par exemple, l'origine sociale, le pouvoir économique, la fonction politique ou administrative. Cependant cette notion d'élite est toute relative et ses caractéristiques varient dans le temps et dans l'espace. Les élites du Nouveau Monde ont constitué, dès l'origine, une des bases de l'évolution coloniale. Elles ont influé sur les structures et les changements de la société américaine. Il n'est pas question de s'interroger ici sur le concept d'élite mais, à travers quelques cas particuliers, d'illustrer ce thème sous des aspects fort divers. Une première partie sera consacrée au rôle des élites indigènes au sein du pouvoir municipal au Mexique, et notamment à Texcoco, suivie de l'étude de la carrière du licenciado J. de Salmerôn, un des hommes qui influença la politique indienne de l'Espagne, de celle de Diez de la Calle, un infra-letrado, secrétaire du Conseil des Indes, mais aussi de la fragile condition de l'élite espagnole de Cajamarca (Pérou). Après l'analyse de la vision du missionnaire carme Maurile de Saint Michel dans les Antilles françaises et la description des premiers administrateurs chargés de gérer la France d'Amérique et les stratégies d'alliances des grands sucriers martiniquais, la grande influence des élites caféières du Brésil durant la première République conclura le thème des élites. La seconde partie sera consacrée à la géographie administrative des territoires d'Acàmbaro et leur évolution, aux contacts entre les Itzas et les Espagnols, au rôle de la rhétorique du salut religieux dans le contexte du développement de l'esclavage et à la dimension religieuse dans la conflictualité sociale et politique en Amérique espagnole."--Page 4 of cover.
