Death and the idea of Mexico by Claudio Lomnitz-Adler( Book )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Death and the Idea of Mexico is the first social, cultural, and political history of death in a nation that has made death its tutelary sign. Examining the history of death and of the death sign from sixteenth-century holocaust to contemporary Mexican-American identity politics, anthropologist Claudio Lomnitz's innovative study marks a turning point in understanding Mexico's rich and unique use of death imagery. Unlike contemporary Europeans and Americans, whose denial of death permeates their cultures, the Mexican people display and cultivate a jovial familiarity with death. This intimacy with death has become the cornerstone of Mexico's national identity." "Based on a stunning range of sources - from missionary testimonies to newspaper cartoons, from masterpieces of artistic vanguards to accounts of public executions and political assassinations - Death and the Idea of Mexico moves beyond the limited methodology of traditional historiographies of death to probe the depths of a people and a country whose fearless acquaintance with death shapes the very terms of its social compact."--Jacket
The return of comrade Ricardo Flores Magón by Claudio Lomnitz-Adler( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this long-awaited book, Claudio Lomnitz tells a groundbreaking story about the experiences and ideology of American and Mexican revolutionary collaborators of the Mexican anarchist Ricardo Flores Magón. Drawing on extensive research in Mexico and the United States, Lomnitz explores the rich, complicated, and virtually unknown lives of Flores Magón and his comrades devoted to the ""Mexican Cause."" This anthropological history of anarchy, cooperation, and betrayal seeks to capture the experience of dedicated militants who themselves struggled to understand their role and place at the margin

"Este libro está dirigido principalmente a estudiantes y profesores de antropología y Ciencias Sociales. Su objetivo es contribuir a estimular una agenda de investigaciones sobre la historia de la antropología y las Ciencias Sociales en el Perú, que permita una visión comparada sobre la disciplina en el Perú y América Latina, que tome en cuenta tanto su historia institucional e intelectual, así como sus vaivenes teóricos y políticos. Esta tarea es más urgente que nunca, pues desde al menos dos décadas, la comunidad de Antropología en el Perú está ausente de los debates y dilemas que atraviesan la disciplina."--Contracarátula

Cultures of democracy( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cultures of Democracy, a special issue of Public Culture, proposes that democratic strategies and practices pursued by different countries, and the relative successes of those strategies and practices, are deeply affected by the countries' cultures, histories, and reception of, or resistance to, modernity. The collection suggests that a commitment to normative models of democracy prevents recognition of democratic practices in societies not usually seen as democratic or proto-democratic from a Western vantage point. Offering accounts of practices of democracy in Egypt, Yemen, Argentina, and India, these cultural theorists -- drawing on work in anthropology, political theory, and postcolonial studies -- revise notions of what might be regarded as a democratic practice. The essays look at examples of democracy in a variety of spheres. One examines how the chewing of khat leaves in public gatherings in Yemen acts as a democratic practice by creating spontaneous forums for political discussion. Another considers the events of the 2003 municipal elections in Buenos Aires, when the center Right secured a record number of votes from an electorate jaded by political corruption by forming strategic alliances with local football clubs, ultimately leading to the election of the president of one popular club. And another essay explores the Indian government's reaction when the political methods used to achieve the nation's independence -- defiance of the law, hunger strikes, demonstrations, and the destruction of public property -- were used to challenge the government in the postcolonial period. Taken as a whole, the essays argue that democracy might be productively viewed as a cultural system inclusive of many cultures of democracy."--Publisher description

Public Life of History( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special issue of 'Public Culture' explores the tension and the challenges raised by the interaction of history with the domains of public life, including politics, the law, and the media. It focuses specifically on situations where a social compact has been reshaped based on the revaluation of historical wounds such as those inflicted in South African apartheid and in the Holocaust. The politics of recognition has challenged historical research to serve public ends, invoking the past as the site of the original slight and calling for redress in the present. Gathering scholars involved in prominent debates regarding the shifting expectations of the rule of history, this special issue is a sustained engagement with historical experience, public discussion, and historical truth in a variety of global sites
