With these hands : the hidden world of migrant farmworkers today by Daniel Rothenberg( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With These Hands presents the world of migrant farmworkers as a complex social and economic system, a network of intertwined lives. The book includes the voices of the growers, farm labor contractors, union organizers, government investigators, coyotes, doctors, teachers, and workers' families living in other countries. No one story, no single truth, can adequately express the farmworkers' world; but this book presents its complexity in vivid and human language
Drone wars : transforming conflict, law, and policy( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drone Wars presents a series of essays by legal scholars, journalists, government officials, military analysts, social scientists, and foreign policy experts. It addresses drones' impact on the ground, how their use adheres to and challenges the laws of war, their relationship to complex policy challenges, and the ways they help us understand the future of war. The book is a diverse and comprehensive interdisciplinary perspective on drones that covers important debates on targeted killing and civilian casualties, presents key data on drone deployment, and offers new ideas on their historical development, significance, and impact on law and policy. Drone Wars documents the current state of the field at an important moment in history when new military technologies are transforming how war is practiced by the United States and, increasingly, by other states and by non-state actors around the world."--Provided by publisher
Memory of silence : the Guatemalan Truth Commission Report by D Rothenberg( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Memory of Silence is an edited one-volume version of the Guatemalan Truth Commission report, presenting the definitive account of one of the most brutal cases of government repression in the Western Hemisphere, a thirty-four year conflict forged by the Cold War, strongly influenced by the United States' foreign policy, and so severe that the Commission determined that the state committed genocide against its own indigenous people. Despite its scope, significance, and impact, the conflict remains largely unknown outside the country, in part because until the publication of this book, the CEH report was largely unavailable in English and only available in Spanish in its unedited, twelve-volume form. Memory of Silence presents the voices of Guatemalan victims and the Commission's analysis of a conflict that created a culture of terror, forced neighbors to commit atrocities against each other, and killed over 200,000 people. Despite the difficult, painful, and tragic nature of the conflict, the Commission stated that its commitment to truth "should leave no room for despair" and should instead inspire Guatemalans and others around the world to pursue peace and the defense of fundamental human rights."--Publisher's website

The Panic of the Robaniños: Gringo Organ Stealers, Narratives of Mistrust, and the Guatemalan Political Imagination by Daniel Rothenberg( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a period of approximately four months in 1994, stories circulated throughout Guatemala that light-skinned foreigners (gringos) known as robaniños, were abducting children, murdering them, and extracting their organs for sale, export, and use in transplant operations. These tales produced a nationwide panic that led to riots, attacks on institutions of state authority, and violence against foreigners which created a brief political crisis with international implications. Despite the intensity of the social unrest caused by these tales, there were no verified cases of organ-stealing gringos. As such, the authority of these tales - their ability to excite the imaginations of thousands and to motivate popular action - did not depend on their factual accuracy. This study presents the first ethnography of the Guatemalan panic of the robaninos, situating the phenomenon within the social, historical, and cultural context of the moment. I argue that the tales of the organ-stealing gringos were examples of "narratives of mistrust," modes of interpreting social reality through stories whose management of truth-claims and capacity to inspire action powerfully express the concerns, questions, and fears of those who tell them. Specifically, the panic of the robaniños evoked, encoded, and critically engaged two modes of violence - state terror and structural violence - which served as the interpretive corollaries and locally-grounded critiques of the master narratives of democracy and development. The argument that involves several steps. First, the panic was premised on a set of stories that were markedly resistant to verification and factual challenges suggesting that the power of the tales gained authority and was intimately bound to these qualities, as the tales used a logic of victimization to forge a community of common outrage. Second, the elements of the stories were simple and repetitive and directly evoked state terror through imagery of mutilated bodies, resonating with actual acts of forced disappearance and "public presentational torture." They played off a core tension between what was hidden and revealed as powerful unseen actors operated in a context in which impunity assured. Third, the tales made claims made about distinct bodies - the bodies of child victims, the gringo bodies of distant beneficiaries of extracted organs, and the bodies of perpetrators whose gringo qualities defined them as suspicious - which supported and enabled a cascade of moral judgements and reflections regarding identity claims and reflecting on a variety of experiences of disempowerment and distance. Fourth, the tales of the organ-stealing gringos deployed imagery of bodies and power through stories that were narratively incomplete and required social interpretation to be rendered sensible, especially through references to the "social body" and concerns regarding politics, identity, and suffering. Fifth, the power of the tales was intimately bound to their ability to evoke the pleasures of storytelling and link multiple actors through a unifying moral calculus as seen in specific acts of performance and spectacle. The narratively grounded moral panic of the robaninos was a celebration of mistrust. Its semiotic logic engaged a set of interrelated issues that resonated profoundly among large numbers of Guatemalans because of how the tales, as narratives, encoded lived experience and enabled the expression of a series of key elements of the Guatemalan political imaginary at a crucial moment in the country's turbulent history

Assessing the impacts of seasonal and vertical atmospheric conditions on air quality over the Pearl River Delta region( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Air pollution is an increasingly concerning problem in many metropolitan areas due to its adverse public health and environmental impacts. Vertical atmospheric conditions have strong effects on vertical mixing of air pollutants, which directly affects surface air quality. The characteristics and magnitude of how vertical atmospheric conditions affect surface air quality, which are critical to future air quality projections, have not yet been fully understood. This study aims to enhance understanding of the annual and seasonal sensitivities of air pollution to both surface and vertical atmospheric conditions. Based on both surface and vertical meteorological characteristics provided by 1994-2003 monthly dynamic downscaling data from the Weather and Research Forecast Model, we develop generalized linear models (GLMs) to study the relationships between surface air pollutants (ozone, respirable suspended particulates, and sulfur dioxide) and atmospheric conditions in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region. Applying Principal Component Regression (PCR) to address multi-collinearity, we study the contributions of various meteorological variables to pollutants' concentration levels based on the loading and model coefficient of major principal components. Our results show that relatively high pollutant concentration occurs under relatively low mid-level troposphere temperature gradients, low relative humidity, weak southerly wind (or strong northerly wind) and weak westerly wind (or strong easterly wind). Moreover, the correlations vary among pollutant species, seasons, and meteorological variables at various altitudes. In general, pollutant sensitivity to meteorological variables is found to be greater in winter than in other seasons, and the sensitivity of ozone to meteorology differs from that of the other two pollutants. Applying our GLMs to anomalous air pollution episodes, we find that meteorological variables up to mid troposphere (∼700mb) play an important role in influencing surface air quality, pinpointing the significant and unique associations between meteorological variables at higher altitudes and surface air quality. Highlights: We develop and evaluate an air pollutant regression model based on meteorological variables at various attitudes. Meteorology up to 700mb altitude can significantly affect ground level air quality. Air pollution is usually associated with northerly wind, low relative humidity or weak vertical temperature gradient
