When Brooklyn-raised photographer Joseph Rodriguez first debuted his body of work shot in Spanish Harlem in the 1980s, it changed the face of documentary photography. Grit, elegy, celebration, pride, lurking cataclysm-all embedded in the portrait of a place and the people. Now, three decades later, Rodriguez and powerHouse Books are revisiting that groundbreaking series: unearthing huge new caches of images, and re-editing and showcasing the body of work in a beautiful, deluxe monograph, reframing the project as one that pushed beyond documentary into the realm of fine art. Over 30 years since the project began, Spanish Harlem: El Barrio in the 80s finally brings this unparalleled endeavor to fruition. Spanish Harlem, New York´s oldest barrio, is the U.S. mecca where Puerto Ricans first established themselves in the 1940s. One of America´s most vital centers of Latino culture, Spanish Harlem is home to 125,000 people, half of whom are Latino. Shot in the mid-to-late 80s, Joseph Rodriguez´s superb photographs bring us into the core of the neighborhood, capturing a spirit of a people that survives despite the ravages of poverty, and more recently, the threat of gentrification and displacement. In a now-distant landscape littered with abandoned buildings, ominous alleyways, and the plague of addiction, the residents of Spanish Harlem persevered with flamboyant style and gritty self-reliance. The heart of the work comes from Rodriguez´s intimacy and access. The trust and familiarity he built with his subjects-repeated visits with no camera, then no photographing, then little by little, a peek here, a shot there-allowed him to transcend surface level sheen and exploitation to capture images that reveal the essence of the neighborhood and of the era. That access paired with a sharp eye for detail and composition, and the practiced and disciplined ability to find the perfect moment, led to the creation of an entirely unique and breathtaking narrative. From idyllic scenes of children playing under the sprinklers on the playground, or performing the Bomba Plena on ´´Old Timer´s Day,´´ to shocking images of men shooting up speedballs and children dying of AIDS, Rodriguez reveals a day in the life of the barrio in the 1980s.

This updated language-learning audiobook presents an informal, user-friendly Spanish course for non-Spanish speakers who need to learn fundamental words and expressions in Spanish in order to communicate with Latino employees in the household or workplace. This new edition keeps up with current social trends, taking into account the increasing frequency in which Anglos and Spanish-speakers converse, not only as employers and employees, but also as co-workers. Rather than emphasize dry rules of grammar, author William Harvey teaches informal, idiomatic conversational Spanish. Passages in the book recreate typical scenes in households or the workplace, with appropriate dialogue passages. 1. Language: English.

´´Hay veces en que me siento como un extraño en el país donde he pasado más de la mitad de mi vida. No es por falta de oportunidades, ni una queja. Es, más bien, una especie de desilusión. Jamás me imaginé que después de 35 años en Estados Unidos iba a seguir siendo un stranger para muchos. Pero eso soy.´´ Jorge Ramos, periodista galardonado con premios Emmy, reconocido presentador del Noticiero Univisión y considerado ´´la voz de los sin voz´´ de la comunidad latina, fue expulsado de una rueda de prensa del candidato presidencial Donald Trump en Iowa en el año 2015 tras cuestionar sus planes sobre inmigración. En este manifiesto personal, Ramos explora qué significa ser un inmigrante latino, o simplemente un inmigrante, en los Estados Unidos de nuestros días. Mediante datos y estadísticas, su olfato para encontrar historias y su propia memoria personal, Ramos nos muestra el rostro cambiante de America y explora las razones por las que él, y muchos otros millones de inmigrantes, aún se sienten como strangers en este país. ´´Es precisamente su estilo de confrontación...el que le ha ganado a Ramos la confianza de tantos hispanos. Ellos saben que en muchos países al sur de Estados Unidos las preguntas directas pueden significar, no solo perder el acceso, sino también perder la vida´´. (Marcela Valdes, The New York Times) Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1. Spanish. Jorge Ramos, Harold Leal. http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/033677/bk_adbl_033677_sample.mp3.

Independence in Latin America: Contrasts and Co...

In the course of 15 momentous years, the Spanish- and the Portuguese-American empires that had endured for three centuries came to an end in the mid-1820s. How did this come about? Not all Latin Americans desired such a change, and the independence wars were civil wars, often cruel and always violent. What social and economic groups lined up on one side or the other? Were there variations from place to place, region to region? Did men and women differ in their experiences of war? How did Indians and blacks participate, and how did they fare as a result? In the end, who won and who lost? Independence in Latin America is about the reciprocal effect of war and social dislocation. It also demonstrates that the war itself led to national identity and so to the creation of new states. These governments generally acknowledged the novel principle of constitutionalism and popular sovereignty, even when sometimes carving out exceptions to such rules. The notion that society consisted of individuals and was not a body made up of castes, guilds, and other corporate orders had become commonplace by the ends of these wars. So international politics and military confrontations are only part of the intriguing story recounted here. The book is published by University of Texas Press. 1. Language: English.

La historia de dos mujeres: una famosa cantante, Cordelia, incapaz siquiera de entonar, y su doble, Iris. Habitan un mundo en donde a los Dioses los crean los hombres; nunca al reves. Estos Dioses existen en un mundo que invade un Dios Impostor ¿ arribista y sibilino ¿ quien reinventa el cielo a imagen y semejanza del infierno ¿ ahi viven los hombres ¿ y que el primer dia crea el pavimento, el Segundo los embotellamientos, y asi la contaminacion y etcetera: el caotico y corrupto mundo de una ciudad como la de Mexico. Este Dios Impostor acaba con la fascinacion en que Vivian los otros Dioses; provoca luchas intestinas, y acaba por dar forma humana a todos los habitantes del antiguo panteon.Los Dioses pierden sus caracteristicas originales y acaban por permitir ¿ como los hombres ¿ que un tirano imbecile, carente de imaginacion, los manipule.Un Dios del tiempo ¿ en transito hacia su inevitable humanizacion ¿ deviene narrador y con paciencia dolorosa teje la urdimbre donde las historias de Cordelia e Iris, y la suya propia, se insertan en ese ´´mundo de los hombres´´, sobrepoblado e ingobernable, apocaliptico.Mas alla de las propuestas ´´light´´ o ´´heavy´´ que sofocan la oferta literaria mexicana, Una Dios para Cordelia nos recuerda que solo hay dos literaturas: la buena y la mala; y que hay mucho de gratificante cuando el lector se topa con una novella en donde a la bondad de su propuesta se suma la condicion de novela de culto instantaneo; crisol de animos y desventuras, pesares, de una generaction que hoy vive y padece la impredeciable, pero aun fascinante, aventura de la existencia. Novela crepuscular, apuesta renovada sin concesiones: experiencia memorable.A God for Cordelia setzt sich auf satirische Weise mit der antifeministischen Mentalität lateinamerikanischer Frauen auseinander, und den Auswirkungen einer religiös-patriarchalen Prägung. 1.

A Cup of Water Under My Bed: A Memoir , Hörbuch...

A coming-of-age memoir by a Colombian-Cuban woman about shaping lessons from home into a new, queer life. In this lyrical, coming-of-age memoir, Daisy Hernandez chronicles what the women in her Cuban-Colombian family taught her about love, money, and race. Her mother warns her about envidia and men who seduce you with pastries, while one ta bemoans that her niece is turning out to be ´´una india” instead of an American. Another auntie instructs that when two people are close, they are bound to become like ua y mugre, fingernails and dirt, and that no, Daisy’s father is not godless. He’s simply praying to a candy dish that can be traced back to Africa. These lessons - rooted in women’s experiences of migration, colonization, y cario - define in evocative detail what it means to grow up female in an immigrant home. In one story, Daisy sets out to defy the dictates of race and class that preoccupy her mother and tas, but dating women and transmen, and coming to identify as bisexual, leads her to unexpected questions. In another piece, NAFTA shuts local factories in her hometown on the outskirts of New York City, and she begins translating unemployment forms for her parents, moving between English and Spanish, as well as private and collective fears. In prose that is both memoir and commentary, Daisy reflects on reporting for the New York Times as the paper is rocked by the biggest plagiarism scandal in its history and plunged into debates about the role of race in the newsroom. A heartfelt exploration of family, identity, and language, A Cup of Water Under My Bed is ultimately a daughter’s story of finding herself and her community, and of creating a new, queer life. 1.
