BOOK EXCERPT:

A gorgeously rendered graphic novel of Daniel Alarcón’s story City of Clowns. Oscar “Chino” Uribe is a young Peruvian journalist for a local tabloid paper. After the recent death of his philandering father, he must confront the idea of his father’s other family, and how much of his own identity has been shaped by his father’s murky morals. At the same time, he begins to chronicle the life of street clowns, sad characters who populate the violent and corrupt city streets of Lima, and is drawn into their haunting, fantastical world. This remarkably affecting story by Daniel Alarcón was included in his acclaimed first book, War by Candlelight, and now, in collaboration with artist Sheila Alvarado, it takes on a new, thrilling form. This graphic novel, with its short punches of action and images, its stark contrasts between light and dark, truth and fiction, perfectly corresponds to the tone of Chino’s story. With the city of Lima as a character, and the bold visual language from the story, City of Clowns is moving, menacing, and brilliantly vivid.

Hoja de ruta es un libro de texto disenado para cursos de cultura y civilizacion de Latinoamerica. Como tal, no se limita a enumerar fechas y hechos historicos sino que entrega los elementos de analisis para que el curso se transforme en un amplio foro de discusion y debate de ideas, al mismo tiempo que incita al alumno al desarrollo de proyectos individuales o colectivos. Ofrece tambien el trasfondo esencial para cursos sobre literatura y cine. En adicion es una herramienta indispensable para prepararse para el examen de Praxis II de Espanol. La actualizacion de esta sexta edicion, hasta noviembre del 2012, toma en cuenta desde los ultimos descubrimientos sobre las mujeres que acompanaron a Colon en sus viajes, lo que cambia la percepcion del rol jugado por las mismas en la historia de Latinoamerica, hasta la reeleccion de Hugo Chavez en Venezuela para un cuarto periodo y su muerte en marzo del 2013 antes de asumir el nuevo mandato, y los resultados del referendum sobre el estatus territorial de Puerto Rico realizado en el 2012. El Nuevo mapa politico: dos decadas que transformaron Latinoamerica ofrece un completo analisis de la evolucion del panorama geopolitico de la region en las ultimas dos primeras decadas del siglo XXI. No basta con saber que el presidente Chavez fue reelegido y sucedido en las elecciones que siguieron a su muerte por su vicepresidente Nicolas Maduro, mas importante aun es entender las implicaciones que la implementacion del Socialismo Bolivariano del Siglo XXI tiene para Venezuela, para el continente y para el resto del mundo. No basta con saber sobre el movimiento estudiantil chileno de los ultimos anos, mas importante aun es que se conozcan las razones por las cuales se convirtio en una fuerza que dio vuelta al tablero politico chileno. No basta con saber que los hispanos conforman la primera minoria en los Estados Unidos, mas importante aun es conocer su impacto como fuerza politica, demostrado en las eleciones presidenciales del 2012, lo que puede cambiar la situacion para esta poblacion en constante crecimiento. Hoja de ruta es la guia que llevara a los estudiantes a comprender el presente politico y economico latinoamericano al mismo tiempo que les ayudara a aprender un piropo, a utilizar un refran, a preparar un plato tipico, a admirar las diferentes manifestaciones de la cultura, la musica, el cine, las artes, la ciencia y la tecnologia. Pero lo mas importante, ademas de entregarles el conocimiento, les provee los elementos para analizar de manera critica los diferentes aspectos de un continente en constante evolucion.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The symposium "Prehistoric Iberia: genetics, anthropology and linguistics" was held in the Circulo de Bellas Artes, Madrid on 16th -17th November 1998. The idea was bringing together specialists who could address not clearly resolved historic and prehistoric issues regarding ancient Iberian and Mediterranean populations, following a multidisciplinary approach. This was necessary in the light of the new bulk of genetic, archeological and linguistic data obtained with the new DNA technology and the recent discoverings in the other fields. Genes may now be easily studied in populations, particularly HLA genes and markers of the mitochondrial DNA and the Y chromosome. Basques, Iberians, North Africans, Berbers (Imazighen) and Mediterraneans have presently been widely studied. The genetic emerging picture is that Mediterraneans are closely related from West (Basque, Iberians, Berbers) to East (Jews, Lebanese, Cretans); however, Greeks are outliers in all the analyses done by using HLA genes. Anthropologists and archeologists showed how there was no people substitution during the revolutionary Mesolithic-Neolithic transition; in addition, cultural relationships were found between Iberia and predinastic Egypt (EI Badari culture). Basque language translation into Spanish has been the key for relating most Mediterranean extinct languages. The Usko-Mediterranean languages were once spoken in a wide African and European area, which also included parts of Asia. This was the "old language" that was slowly substituted by Eurasian languages starting approximately after the Bronze Age (or 2,000 years BC).

BOOK EXCERPT:

Since the publication of the still very valuable Biblioteca histórica de la filología by Cipriano Muñoz y Manzano, conde de la Viñaza (Madrid, 1893), our knowledge of the history of the study of the Spanish language has grown considerably, and most manuscript and secondary sources had never been tapped before Hans-Josef Niederehe of the University of Trier courageously undertook the task to bring together any available bibliographical information together with much more recent research findings, scattered in libraries, journals and other places. The resulting Bibliografía cronológica de la lingüística, la gramática y la lexicografía del español: Desde los principios hasta el año 1600 (BICRES) began appearing in 1994. BICRES I covered the period from the early beginnings to 1600), followed by BICRES II (1601–1700), BICRES III (1701–1800), and together with Miguel Ángel Esparza Torres of Madrid there followed BICRES IV (1801 to 1860). Now, the fifth volume, has become available, covering the years from 1861 to 1899. Access to the bibliographical information of altogether 5,272 titles is facilitated by several detailed indexes, such as a short title index, a listing of printers, publishers and places of production, and an author index. More than twenty years of research in the major libraries of Spain and other European countries have gone into this unique work — relative sources of the Americas have also been covered — making it exhaustive source for any serious scholar of any possible aspect of the Spanish language.
