Caribbean, sea of the New World by Germán Arciniegas( Book )

19 editions published between 1946 and 2004 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book was first published in 1946, one year after the Spanish original Biografia del Caribe." "There are four 'books' in this work, corresponding roughly to the four centuries from the arrival of Columbus to the construction of the Panama Canal. Their titles tell the themes: the Golden Age; the Silver Age; the Age of Enlightenment and the Age of Liberty. According to Professor Gustavo Belle Lemus, historian and former Vice-President of Colombia, Arciniegas broke with the traditional nationalistic perspectives of Hispanic American historians by incorporating the Caribbean into the long history of the West, as an integral part of the violent expansion of the Judeo-Christian world that began with the arrival of Columbus. As such, Caribbean Sea of the New World takes its place as one of the earliest expressions of a Pan-Caribbean intellectual and political consciousness."--BOOK JACKET

Cuban counterpoint : tobacco and sugar by Fernando Ortiz( Book )

21 editions published between 1947 and 2003 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tobacco and sugar have made the history, the character, and the economy of Cuba. In this entertaining book, packed with fascinating lore, scholarship in its most humane form, and the flavor of Fernando Ortiz's exceedingly civilized and humorous personality, the two important crops are seen from many points of view. Their economic aspects form the base, but they are examined, too, for their effects on folklore, art, science, industry, and daily human living. Out of personal experience, memory, and a lifetime of reading in all the western European languages, Dr. Ortiz has condensed exactly what is most telling, interesting, and significant about the leafy plant and the cane that together have made the story of his native land. The present translation, by Harriet de Onis, was made from a text specially prepared in Spanish by the author. It has an admiring introduction by the late Bronislaw Malinowski and a prologue by Herminio Portell VilA, noted Cuban historian and sociologist
