Sports culture in Latin American history( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As this edited volume shows, the function of sport as a historical and cultural marker is particularly relevant in Latin America. From the late nineteenth century to the present, the contributors examine the role of sport as a political vehicle, in claims to citizenship, as a source of community and ethnic pride, as a symbol of masculinity or feminism, as allegorical performance, and in many other purposes. The chapters juxtapose better-known activities such as boxing and soccer with first peoples' athletics in Argentina, cholita wrestling in Bolivia, the African-influenced martial art of capoeira, Japanese Brazilian gateball, and the "art deco" body ideal for postrevolutionary Mexican women, among other topics."--Back cover
Making citizens in Argentina by Benjamin Bryce( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making Citizens in Argentina charts the evolving meanings of citizenship in Argentina from the 1880s to the 1980s. Against the backdrop of immigration, science, race, sport, populist rule, and dictatorship, the contributors analyze the power of the Argentine state and other social actors to set the boundaries of citizenship. They also address how Argentines contested the meanings of citizenship over time, and demonstrate how citizenship came to represent a great deal more than nationality or voting rights. In Argentina it defined a person's relationships with, and expectations of, the state. Citizenship conditioned the rights and duties of Argentines and foreign nationals living in the country. Through the language of citizenship, Argentines explained to one another who belonged and who did not. In the cultural, moral, and social requirements of citizenship, groups with power often marginalized populations whose societal status was more tenuous. Making Citizens in Argentina also demonstrates how workers, politicians, elites, indigenous poeples, and others staked their own claims to citizenship."

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argentina and the United States : an alliance contained by David Sheinin( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV>In the first English-language survey of Argentine-U.S. relations to appear in more than a decade, David M.K. Sheinin challenges the accepted view that confrontation has been the characteristic state of affairs between the two countries. Sheinin draws on both Spanish- and English-language sources in the United States, Argentina, Canada, and Great Britain to provide a broad perspective on the two centuries of shared U.S.-Argentine history with fresh focus in particular on cultural ties, nuclear politics in the cold war era, the politics of human rights, and Argentina's exit in 1991 from the nonaligned movement. From the perspectives of both countries, Sheinin discusses such topics as Pan-Americanism, petroleum, communism and fascism, and foreign debt. Although the general trajectory of the two countries' relationship has been one of cooperative interaction based on generally strong and improving commercial and financial ties, shared strategic interests, and vital cultural contacts, Sheinin also emphasizes episodes of strained ties. These include the Cuban Revolution, the Dirty War of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and the Falklands/Malvinas War. In his epilogue, Sheinin examines Argentina's monetary crash of December 2001, when the United States-in a major policy shift-refused to come to Argentina's rescue.</DIV>

RG3 : the promise by David Sheinin( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Griffin III was a preternaturally gifted athlete from a young age, but in those days he played nearly every sport except football. He seemed pointed toward stardom, but would it be in basketball, his true favorite, or maybe in track, where he qualified for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials as a hurdler? As for playing football, the only sport that really mattered in Griffin's small Texas town, first he had to overcome his mother's objections to the violence and danger - which he did by making a "Pinkie Promise" with her that no one would catch him. Eventually, he began to realize that all of his remarkable talents - unrivaled speed, pinpoint accuracy, exceptional intelligence, single-minded drive - combined into a potent force that few quarterbacks could rival. What followed seemed almost destined: a football scholarship to Baylor University, three exceptional seasons capped by winning the Heisman Trophy, and the 2012 draft - where Griffin, as the second overall pick, became the franchise quarterback for one of the oldest and most storied football teams in the country. In RG3: The Promise, Washington Post reporter Dave Sheinin provides an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at Griffin's first year in the NFL, from his record-breaking first game to the frightening knee injury that ended the Redskins' playoff hopes. An award-winning journalist himself, Sheinin has reported on Griffin's rookie season every step of the way, and now has written a unique, intimate look inside the transformation of one of the NFL's brightest young stars

Migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in Latin America( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scholarship on ethnicity in modern Latin America has traditionally understood the region's various societies as fusions of people of European, indigenous, and/or African descent. These are often deployed as stable categories, with European or "white" as a monolith against which studies of indigeneity or blackness are set. The role of post-independence immigration from eastern and western Europe-as well as from Asia, Africa, and other Latin-American countries-in constructing the national ethnic landscape remains understudied. The contributors of this volume focus their attention on Jewish, Arab, non-Latin European, Asian, and Latin American immigrants and their experiences in their "new" homes. Rejecting exceptionalist and homogenizing tendencies within immigration history, contributors advocate instead an approach that emphasizes the locally- and nationally-embedded nature of ethnic identification"--

Consent of the Damned The Quiet Acceptance of Human Rights Abuses from Dictatorship to Democracy by David Sheinin( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under violent military dictatorship, Operation Condor and the Dirty War scarred Argentina from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, leaving behind a legacy of repression, state terror, and political murder. Even today, the now-democratic Argentine government attempts to repair the damage of these atrocities by making human rights a policy priority. But what about the other Dirty War, during which Argentine civilians--including indigenous populations--and foreign powers ignored and even abetted the state's vicious crimes against humanity? In this groundbreaking new work, David Shei
