This book details many aspects of Latin American culture as experienced by millions of people living in Central and South America.

Several chapters provide detailed accounts of daily life, including descriptions of contemporary dress, mealtime traditions, transportation, and traditional ways of conducting business.

Transkulturelle Politische Theorie

Eine Einführung

Diese Einführung in das junge Feld der transkulturellen Politischen Theorie richtet sich an Studierende und Lehrende der Politikwissenschaft und insbesondere der Politischen Theorie. Dabei werden in prinzipiell voneinander unabhängigen, aber aufeinander verweisenden Kapiteln spezifische Fragestellungen des Feldes anhand von Ausgangsproblemen erarbeitet. Da transkulturell orientierte Politische Theorie oftmals mit naiven Annahmen konfrontiert ist, die es zu differenzieren und relativieren gilt, wird genau das zum didaktischen Prinzip erhoben: Am Anfang jedes Kapitels wird eine intuitiv scheinbar richtige Ausgangsbehauptung thematisiert, die im Verlauf des Kapitels hinterfragt wird.

In dem Werk Das grüne Haus haben sich der geographische Raum - Urwalddörfer und Städte in einem Städtedreieck des nördlichen Peru - und die dargestellte soziale Problematik im Vergleich zu Vargas Llosas erstem Roman Die Stadt und die Hunde erweitert. Der Autor erzählt, wie hochherzige Nonnen Urwaldmädchen einfangen, um sie in ihren Missionsschulen zu christianisieren. Am konkreten Schicksal Bonifacias verdeutlicht er deren »neues« Leben: Dienerin bei den Garnisonsoffizieren, schließlich Prostituierte. Eine zweite Geschichte berichtet von der Ausbeutung der Indianer bei der Kautschukgewinnung, den Repressalien der Regierung bei Auflehnung und Streik. Die permanente Unterdrückung der Eingeborenen durch die Vertreter der herrschenden Gesellschaft ist Thema des dritten Handlungsmotivs. Zwei Episoden ereignen sich in der kleinen Wüstenstadt Piura. Eine grüngestrichene Hütte, das städtische Bordell, ist Zentrum des erzählerischen Kaleidoskops, Schnittpunkt der Schicksale, Zeiten und Realitäten, ein Haus von nahezu mythischer Vergangenheit und Bedeutung.

Las culturas y civilizaciones latinoamericanas has been updated. This textbook not only describes the history of Latin America, but it sets a mood that allows the reader to get a genuine sense of the languages, cultures, and civilizations of this complex and colorful land. It provides an account of how Columbus's voyages gave rise to utopian dreams, the ramifications of which led to a brilliant display of hybrid cultures, changed the ethnic composition of two continents, accelerated lines of commerce, and refashioned the Western World's diet. The textbook takes the reader through the "discovery," conquest, and colonization of the New World and on to independence and the national period. In addition, each chapter offers general concepts, important terms, questions, and topics for classroom debates. Comprehensive and compelling, this book chronicles the history of an important region in a way that will interest students and teachers alike.

Studies on the relation between language, identity and nation (building) represent a long tradition in linguistic, cultural and political research. In this interdisciplinary anthology, we focus on different aspects of how language is used to shape a nation; by retaining a national identity in the context of emigration, by measures taken to change an existing nation into a new one, by introducing a discourse designed to re-establish a putatively lost nation. Finally, we discuss how nation and identity are shaped in a modern multi-ethnic, multi-lingual and multi-cultural society. The anthology contains articles in English, French and German from political science, history, linguistics, literature and translatology and is written by researchers based in Finland, Greece, Norway and the United Kingdom.

Weder arm noch ohnmächtig

Eine Streitschrift gegen schwarze Eliten und weisse Helfer

In ihrer provozierenden Analyse rechnet die Kamerunerin Axelle Kabou mit den afrikanischen Eliten ab - und mit einer Haltung, die mehr als vierzig Jahre nach der Unabhängigkeit immer noch alle Schuld am Elend Afrikas der Sklaverei und dem Kolonialismus zuweist. Ihre brisante Hauptthese: "Afrika will sich nicht entwickeln." Mit Blick auf Asien, das es geschafft habe, aus der Abhängigkeit vom Westen herauszukommen, meint die Autorin, es sei höchste Zeit, dass Afrika sich für seine Geschichte selbst verantwortlich fühle und sein Schicksal in die eigenen Hände nehme. Afrika sei nämlich "weder arm noch ohnmächtig".

This standard introduction to the spoken romance languages, which has long been out of print, is now being released in an up-to-date and revised new edition. The topic spoken language has developed into one of the most interesting fields of research and not only in linguistics. From linguistic theory-based preliminary observations on speech and writing to the topic of language variation, the objective of this book is to present the most significant problems of spoken language, in contrast to written language, for the three major romance languages. The main chapters of this work focus, on the one hand, on the universal characteristics of the spoken word, in particular the textual-pragmatic, syntactic and semantic phenomena. On the other hand, the special features of each of the spoken varieties of French, Italian and Spanish are taken into consideration. This is initially approached from a diachronic (historical) linguistic perspective; the focus here is on the development of individual linguistic spatial variety. This is followed by an exact synchronic description of the characteristics of the individual linguistic varieties at the phonological, morphosyntactic and lexical levels. All linguistic phenomena of today s synchrony are interpreted on the basis of original corpus material. This work regards itself as a contribution to variety linguistics focused on speech and writing."
