Spanish Immigrants in Buenos Aires, 1850-1930

More than four million Spaniards came to the Western Hemisphere between the mid-nineteenth century and the Great Depression. Unlike that of most other Europeans, their major destination was Argentina, not the United States. Studies of these immigrants—mostly laborers and peasants—have been scarce in comparison with studies of other groups of smaller size and lesser influence. Presenting original research within a broad comparative framework, Jose C. Moya fills a considerable gap in our knowledge of immigration to Argentina, one of the world's primary "settler" societies. Moya moves deftly between micro- and macro-analysis to illuminate the immigration phenomenon. A wealth of primary sources culled from dozens of immigrant associations, national and village archives, and interviews with surviving participants in Argentina and Spain inform his discussion of the origins of Spanish immigration, residence patterns, community formation, labor, and cultural cognitive aspects of the immigration process. In addition, he provides valuable material on other immigrant groups in Argentina and gives a balanced critique of major issues in migration studies.

Herrin der Flüsse, Seherin des Schicksals, Mutter der weißen Königin Sie sei so rein, dass sie ein Einhorn fangen könne, sagt man über Jacquetta von Luxemburg. Ihrer Vermählung mit dem mächtigen Duke of Bedford, dem engsten Berater König Henrys VI., sieht die junge Frau mit Furcht entgegen. Denn ihr Herz gehört Bedfords Junker Richard Woodville. Als der ungeliebte Gemahl unerwartet stirbt, schließen die beiden heimlich den Bund der Ehe – eine beispiellose Überschreitung der Standesgrenzen. Dann nimmt der König die junge Maguerite d’Anjou zur Frau, und Jacquetta steigt zur engsten Vertrauten der neuen Königin auf. Intrigen und Missgunst beherrschen bald das Leben zu Hofe. Doch mit unerschütterlicher Loyalität kämpft Jacquetta für das Herrscherpaar – und für ihre Tochter Elizabeth, die sie für etwas Höheres geboren sieht: die Krone des englischen Königreichs und die weiße Rose von York. «Perfekt recherchiert und grandios erzählt.» (The Times) «Philippa Gregory ist wahrlich die Meisterin des historischen Romans! Geschichte kann kaum unterhaltsamer, lebendiger oder bezaubernder erzählt werden.» (Sunday Express) «Niemand schreibt besser über die Tudors als Philippa Gregory. Sie stellt alle ihre Nacheiferer in den Schatten.» (Publishers Weekly) «Eine würdige Ergänzung dieser faszinierenden Serie.» (Library Journal)

From the “master storyteller”* of The Best of Everything comes a wise and wonderful novel of family loyalties (and disloyalties). Olivia is a twice-divorced New Yorker from a large extended family who grew up together on a magnificent summer estate, Mandelay. Although the cousins have scattered across the country, following sharply divergent paths, memories of their shared childhood continue to resonate, shaping their lives and decisions. When they’re together, they long for a vanished past, but alone Olivia must face a family legacy of lies, infidelity and tragedy. The Cousins is a sweeping saga that richly portrays the secrets we keep from family and from ourselves, from an author who voiced the experience of a generation.
