Born in blood and fire : a concise history of Latin America by John Charles Chasteen( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 2,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This history of Latin America will delight any reader. Fully informed by the latest scholarship, this survey spans six centuries and covers twenty countries. John Charles Chasteen presents a narrative of the Latin American experience, animated by stories about men and women from all walks of life, and enriched by insightful analysis. The famous and not so famous characters of Latin America are here: Cortes, Malinche, Moctezuma, Sister Juana Ines de la Cruz, Bolivar, Father Manuel Hidalgo, Juan and Eva Peron, and, of course, Che Guevara. This is a story of despair and hope, the processes of conquest and colonization, race mixing and class construction, revolution and republic formation, and the elusive quests for sustained economic growth and political and social equality."--BOOK JACKET

"Well-written study of 19th-century caudillismo and border politics looks at both leaders and followers during the 1893-94 Federalist War and subsequent uprisings in Uruguay.

Getting high : marijuana through the ages by John Charles Chasteen( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This engaging book traces the global history of marijuana, reaching back thousands of years. Noted historian John Charles Chasteen follows the use of the drug since Neolithic times, which makes marijuana among the first domesticated plants. Surprisingly, though, only infrequently has it been used as a recreational drug. Instead, there is a vibrant spiritual dimension to its long history that has been continually ignored. Beginning with the familiar "outbreak" of the 1960s, Chasteen unearths successive layers of marijuana's history. Written with insight, clarity, sophistication, and good humor, this deeply informed work discusses the cultivation of cannabis and its many forms, including hemp, one of the world's principal fiber crops. After a tour of Latin America, Africa, India, and the Muslim world, Chasteen concludes that unlike alcohol marijuana has always flourished outside the mainstream. Its principal users have been creative outsiders of many kinds--mystics, artists, musicians, free thinkers, and spiritual seekers--as well as poor laborers attracted by its low cost. Marijuana, it seems, is a mind-expanding drug after all, and Chasteen explores its rich heritage with captivating insight." -- Résumé de l'éditeur
