Latin America's turbulent transitions : the future of twenty-first century socialism by Roger Burbach( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past few years, something remarkable has occurred in Latin America. For the first time since the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua in the 1980s, people within the region have turned toward radical left governments - specifically in Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Why has this profound shift taken place and how does this new, so-called Twenty-First-Century Socialism actually manifest itself? What are we to make of the often fraught relationship between the social movements and governments in these countries and do, in fact, the latter even qualify as 'socialist' in reality? These are the bold and critical questions that Latin America's Turbulent Transitions explores. The authors provocatively argue that although US hegemony in the region is on the wane, the traditional socialist project is also declining and something new is emerging. Going beyond simple conceptions of 'the left', the book reveals the true underpinnings of this powerful, transformative, and yet also complicated and contradictory process."--Publisher's website
Venezuela speaks! : voices from the grassroots by Carlos Martínez( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of interviews with activists and other contributors, this compelling oral history details Venezuela?s bloodless uprising and reorganization. For the last decade, Venezuela?s?Bolivarian Revolution? has captured international attention. Poverty, inequality, and unemployment have all dropped, while health, education, and living standards have seen a commensurate rise?and this chronicle is the real, bottom-up account. The stories shed light on the complex facets within the revolution, detailing the change in such realities as community media to land reform, cooperatives to communal councils, and the labor movement to the Afro-Venezuelan network. Offering a different perspective than that of the international mainstream media, which has focused predominantly on Venezuela?s controversial president, Hugo Chavez, these examples of democracy in action illustrate the vast cultural, economic, and racial differences within the country?all of which have impacted the current South American state

On September 15, 2008, the United States fell into the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. But above this is a crisis that's even worse, that of human rights. The solutions to crossing the American crises are now in the hands of the people. Truck drivers, farmers, homeless, ex-felons, minorities, immigrants, and other residents from coast to coast, reveal desperation, indignation, hope, dreams and a disastrous economic breakdown, generated by a system of inequality
Beyond Elections : Redefining Democracy in the Americas( Visual )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is democracy? Freedom, equality, participation? Everyone has his or her own definition. Across the world, 120 countries now have at least the minimum trappings of democracy--the freedom to vote for all citizens. But for many, this is just the beginning not the end. Following decades of US-backed dictatorships, civil wars and devastating structural adjustment policies in the South, and corporate control, electoral corruption, and fraud in the North, representative politics in the Americas is in crisis. Citizens are now choosing to redefine democracy under their own terms: local, direct, and participatory. Beyond Elections is a journey that takes us across the Americas to attempt to answer one of the most important questions of our time: What is Democracy?"--Container
Image and essence in Thomas Hardy's Wessex by Michael Fox( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the publication of Thomas Hardy's novel Far From the Madding Crowd in 1874, Hardy's descriptions of rural England's landscapes have received a great deal of attention from critics and readers. This thesis examines the relationship between Hardy's descriptions of landscape and the reading public's desires and expectations for those landscapes. It focuses on the disjunction between the difficult truths Hardy sought to reveal through his landscape representation and the demand for realism and authenticity involved in his public reception. The study documents how a collective desire for nostalgic images of rural England shaped popular readings of Hardy's fiction--readings that often ignored more complex issues in Hardy's work. Where the nostalgic readings interpret Hardy as a regional chronicler of England's remote, more stable past, this study shows how the landscapes illustrate broader contemporary concerns of a modernizing Victorian society.
