The foreign in international crime fiction : transcultural representations by Jean Anderson( )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The foreigner' is a familiar character in popular crime fiction, from the foreign detective whose outsider status provides a unique perspective on a familiar or exotic location to the xenophobic portrayal of the criminal 'other'. Exploring popular crime fiction from across the world, The Foreign in International Crime Writing examines these popular works as 'transcultural contact zones' in which writers can tackle such issues as national identity, immigration, globalization and diaspora communities. Offering readings of 20th and 21st century crime writing from Norway, the UK, India, China, Europe and Australasia, the essays in this book open up new directions for scholarship on crime writing and transnational literatures."--Publisher's website

Naomi Harris E.U.S.A by Naomi Harris( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EUSA documents American-themed places in Europe and European-themed places in America. Primarily portraiture, the photos are sentimental and idealized, a reaction to the homogenized, indistinguishable common world community, a direct result of globalization. In Olde-World towns in California, Wisconsin or Iowa the respective Danish, Swiss, or Dutch heritage being celebrated is ostensibly that of a significant segment of the local population and reflects a desire for authenticity. In other places the heritage is blatantly designed and marketed purely for its entertainment and touristic value. This is also the case with many of the Western theme-parks visited in Europe. Many of the pictures make it hard to locate when and where they where taken: are we in the US or somewhere in Europe? 'E.U.S.A.' is an ambitious project that raises questions about authenticity, cultural identity, and appropriation, about the function of other-directed places and their enduring appeal

Lesiones rectocolonicas diagnosticadas por endoscopia: estudio comparativo de resultados en servicios de Paraguay y Uruguay by Carolina Miranda( )

1 edition published in 1997 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Las lesiones recto-colonicas han mostrado ser un grave problema, tanto por su tasa de incidencia como por su gravedad; el cancer colorrectal muestra en esta region un aumento de su frecuencia y de su mortalidad. La Colonoscopia constituye una importante herramienta, junto con la Radiologia Contrastada, en el diagnostico y terapeutica de estas afecciones. El presente estudio compara las frecuencias de lesiones colonicas halladas mediante endoscopia, en poblaciones hospitalarias de Paraguay y Uruguay. Fueron estudiados 195 pacientes en Asuncion del Paraguay y 391 en Montevideo, encontrandose que la indicacion mas frecuente de este procedimiento fue la Hemorragia Digestiva Baja tanto para paraguayos (42.6 por ciento) como para uruguayos (31,5 por ciento). En relacion a las lesiones diagnosticadas, la mas frecuente tanto para Uruguay como Paraguay fue la Colopatia Diverticular (25,8 por ciento - 40,1 por ciento), seguido por el neoplasma recto-colonico (19,7 por ciento - 14,3 por ciento). Los grupos etarios en los cuales se encontro la mayoria de las lesiones fueron los mayores a 50 anos, por lo cual es en estos grupos en los cuales debemos realizar un seguimiento y vigilancia mas precisos, tendientes a lograr detectar las patologias en estadios mas precoces(AU)
