In the society of nature : a native ecology in Amazonia by Philippe Descola( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in Spanish and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aislados en la selva del Alto Amazonas, los indios Achuar domestican simbólicamente un mundo salvaje que ellos han modificado apenas. Llenando la selva, los ríos y huertos, de parientes animales y vegetales que se deben seducir, obligar o mimar, este pueblo de guerreros da a la naturaleza todas las apareciencias de la sociedad. Partiendo de una etnografía minuciosa de la economía doméstica, el autor demuestra que esta ecología simbólica, no es un reflejo ilusorio de la realidad, porque influye en las elecciones tónicas de los Achuar, y sin duda, su destino histórico. Rechazando un idealismo que no tiene absolutamente en cuenta las condiciones materiales de existencia de los pueblos estudiados, y repudiando también un empirismo ingenuo que ve, en las creencias y representaciones, simplemente un reflejo de las formas de vida, Philippe Descola se ha dedicado a la difícil tarea de detectar, en un pueblo poco conocido, lo que yo llamaría "la zona de interrelación": condici-nes materiales de existencia, medio geográfico etc., no como falsamente se podrían imaginar, independientemente de la presencia del hombre, sino percibidos como los hombres los van conociendo y ya transformados por la mano del hombre. Este libro, por tanto, no es solamente una contribución histórica y etnográfica para el mejor conocimiento de una zona del Nuevo Mundo particularmente importante, zona de unión de las altas culturas andinas y las de la selva: es una obra de gran interés teórico y metodológico, que encauza la reflexión antropológica en nuevos caminos

El Narco : inside Mexico's criminal insurgency by Ioan Grillo( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world has watched stunned at the bloodshed in Mexico. Forty thousand murdered since 2006; police chiefs shot within hours of taking office; mass graves comparable to those of civil wars; car bombs shattering storefronts; headless corpses heaped in town squares. And it is all because a few Americans are getting high. Or is it? The United States throws Black Hawk helicopters, DEA assistance, and money at the problem. But in secret, Washington is confused and divided about what to do. Who are these mysterious figures tearing Mexico apart, they wonder. What is El Narco? El Narco draws the first definitive portrait of Mexico's cartels and how they have radically transformed in the past decade. El Narco is not a gang; it is a movement and an industry drawing in hundreds of thousands, from bullet-ridden barrios to marijuana-covered mountains. The conflict spawned by El Narco has given rise to paramilitary death squads enlisting tens of thousands of men-at-arms ready to do battle from Guatemala to the Texas border (and sometimes beyond.) Journalist Ioan Grillo has spent a decade in Mexico covering the drug war from the front lines. This piercing book joins testimonies from inside the cartels with firsthand dispatches and unsparing analysis. The devastation may be south of the Rio Grande, El Narco shows, but the United States is very much a part of the battleground."--Jacket
