May '68 and its afterlives by Kristin Ross( )
21 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 1,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During May 1968, students and workers in France united in the biggest strike and the largest mass movement in French history. Protesting capitalism, American imperialism, and Gaullism, 9 million people from all walks of life, from shipbuilders to department store clerks, stopped working. The nation was paralyzed - no sector of the workplace was untouched. Yet, just thirty years later, the mainstream image of May '68 in France has become that of a mellow youth revolt, a cultural transformation stripped of its violence and profound sociopolitical implications." "Kristin Ross shows how the current official memory of May '68 came to serve a political agenda antithetical to the movement's aspirations. She examines the roles played by sociologists, repentant ex-student leaders, and the mainstream media in giving what was a political event a predominantly cultural and ethical meaning."--Jacket

Ever since George Washington warned against "foreign entanglements" in his 1796 farewell speech, the United States has wrestled with how to act toward other countries. Consequently, the history of anti-Americanism is as long and varied as the history of the United States. In this multidisciplinary collection, seventeen leading thinkers provide substance and depth to the recent outburst of fast talk on the topic of anti-Americanism by analyzing its history and currency in five key global regions: the Middle East, Latin America, Europe, East Asia, and the United States. The commentary

Human rights and revolutions by Jeffrey N Wasserstrom( )

Now in a revised and updated edition with added original chapters, this acclaimed book provides an interdisciplinary perspective on the complex links between revolutionary struggles and human rights. Covering events as far removed from one another as the English Civil War, the Parisian upheavals of 1789, Latin American independence struggles, and protests in late twentieth-century China, the contributors explore the paradoxes of revolutions that have both helped spur new advances in thinking about human rights and produced regimes that commit a range of abuses.

The cocoons of language, the betrayals of silence: Contemporary Syrian prison literature, human rights discourse, and literary experimentalism by Shareah Taleghani( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on different theorizations of genre, the first chapter elaborates on the ties between the truth effects of prison literature and the truth claims of human rights. The second chapter explores how vulnerability and recognition are intermeshed in both human rights discourse and in the short stories of various Syrian authors. Beginning with the issue of "extraordinary rendition," the third chapter analyzes depictions of torture in different works of Syrian prison literature and demonstrates how different author's interrogate and at times efface torture's representation. The fourth chapter focuses on the prison chronotope--the variegated portrayals of and reflections on prison time and prison space in different works of prison literature as well as human rights reports. The final chapter turns to the issue of the relationship between writing and detention; it discusses the heavy prevalence of metafictional tendencies in works of Syrian prison literature as a mode of questioning the seeming narrative transparencies of human rights discourse
Cuba in the American imaginary: Literature and national culture in Cuba and the United States, 1848--1958 by John Patrick Leary( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through an analysis of American and Cuban fiction, travel writing, journalism, and poetry, this dissertation explores this paradox of intimacy and estrangement in the cultural history of Cuban-American relations. I argue principally that Cuba has been a crucial measure by which the U.S. has defined its own modernity, by casting its neighbor as "underdeveloped." Others have chronicled the "othering" of Latin Americans in U.S. culture as the outsider that defines the national community within. This project shows, however, that Latin otherness has emerged out of a more complex entanglement between the U.S. and a Latin America in which Americans, however grudgingly, recognize themselves. Americans saw Cuba as both ally and adversary, white and black, modern and "backward," both inside and outside the U.S. sphere. Americans recognized their country's racial and social conflicts in nearby Cuba, but instead of seeing these as shared problems, Americans perceived them as timeless "Latin" traits. I argue that our received notions of underdevelopment have derived from this dialectic of recognition and disavowal in the American imaginary of Cuba
