5 Cooper, Page

Sambumbia : A Discovery of the Dominican Republic the Modern Hispanola
NY
Caribbean Library
1947

First Edition

Good
Poor


Lorenlowicz, Ivena
Signed
Hardcover 1st edition - Association copy being signed by DANILO BRUGAL ALFAU, Consul of the Dominican Repblic in 1947 for Canada. This book is sambumbia in the sense that it too epitomizes the Dominicans in their everyday affairs, as they work and dream and play. It doesn't concern itself with politics, or history, although the Dominicans are so conscious of their history that one cannot help being intimate with it. Blue boards with gilt lettering, rather heavy shelfwear and rubbing of covers, front hinge starting and some age toning of pages but actually not generally bad - a good reading copy. Dust jacket is in tatters but still present

Minor edgewear and a gift inscription on title page, otherwise a fine clean solid copy. From the publisher:The world of the West Indian defies boundaries, as disclosed with poignant realism in these fine stories set in Canada, the West Indies and New York. Dabydeen uses a language and style, distinctly his own, combined with humour and open-eyed wonder, to probe a diversity of situations and consider with understanding and generosity the foibles and idiosyncrasies of his characters and their remarkable endurance and will to survive. Long after the stories have been read, his characters will continue to haunt the mind."

10 David Freidel, Linda Schele

Forest of Kings : The Untold Story of the Ancient Maya
NY
William Morrow
1990


Soft Cover
Very Good





Minor edgewear and spine crease otherwise a fine clean sturdy copy. From the publisher;"The recent interpretation of Maya hieroglyphs has given us the first written history of the New World as it existed before the European invasion. In this book, two of the first central figures in the massive effort to decode the glyphs, Linda Schele and David Freidel, make this history available in all its detail. A Forest of Kings is the story of Maya kingship, from the beginning of its institution and the first great pyramid builders two thousand years ago to the decline of Maya civilization and its destruction by the Spanish. Here the great historic rulers of pre-Columbian civilization come to life again with the decipherment of their writing. At its height, Maya civilization flourished under great kings like Shield-Jaguar, who ruled for more than sixty years, expanding his kingdom and building some of the most impressive works of architecture in the ancient world. Long placed on a mist-shrouded pedestal as austere, peaceful stargazers, the Maya elites are now known to have been the rulers of populous, aggressive city-states. Hailed as "a Rosetta stone of Maya civilization" (Brian M. Fagan, author of People of the Earth), A Forest of Kings is "a must for interested readers," says Evon Vogt, professor of anthropology at Harvard University. "

Teetering on the Rim: Global Restructuring, Daily Life, and the Armed Retreat of the Bolivian State
Jackson, Tennessee, U.S.A.
Columbia Univ Pr
2000
0231118058 / 9780231118057

Soft Cover
As New





A clean fresh copy that appears UNREAD. From the publisher:"In this age when many trumpet the shrill fanfares of market triumphalism, few stop to ask how global political and economic restructuring is affecting impoverished states and transforming the daily lives of ordinary people. Teetering on the Rim asks just that question as it offers a critique "from below" of what has been called neoliberalism -- the latest set of capitalist-inspired policies that posit "the market" as the remedy for all social and economic problems. Focusing on an impoverished city on the periphery of La Paz, the Bolivian capital, Lesley Gill examines the ways in which neoliberal policies reorder social relations among poor men and women -- and between them and the state. These vulnerable low-income people teetering on the edge of survival are forced to contend not only with the state but with each other as well as an array of international organizations to get what they need to continue to live. In an effort to understand ordinary people's changing sense of what is, and is not, possible, collectively and individually, after more than a decade of economic restructuring, Teetering on the Rim reveals the vast and relentless changes wrought in the fabric of social life and offers an instructive example of just what is wrong with the global economic order."

What Lies Across the Water : The Real Story of the Cuban Five
Nova Scotia
Fernwood Publishing Company, Limited
2013
1552665429 / 9781552665428

Soft Cover
Very Good





Light edgewear and a spine crease otherwise a fine clean solid copy. from the publisher:"This book removes the thin fabric of lies around the case of five Cuban intelligence agents who came to Miami to fight terrorism This book has the detail and the analysis. Read it. Saul Landau, Director, Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up? An invaluable and informative account of the last chapter of the Cold War between Cuba and the United States a story that is alternatively bizarre, surreal and ever suspenseful. Ann Louise Bardach, Author, Without FidelandCuba Confidential What Lies Across the Water recounts the events leading up to the 1998 arrest of the Cuban Five, five Cuban intelligence agents convicted of conspiring to commit espionage against the United States. The five agents Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez had been sent to Florida to infiltrate and report on the activities of Miami-based, anti-Cuban terrorist groups, who were carrying out deadly terrorist attacks against Cuba. Cuba even passed on information its agents learned about those illegal attacks to the FBI. Instead of arresting the terrorists, however, the FBI arrested the Cuban Five. While the Cubans remain in jail one serving a double-life-plus-fifteen-year sentence the terrorists they tried to stop remain free. The story of the Cuban Five illustrates the injustice and hypocrisy of the U.S. government s supposed post-9/11 zero tolerance policy toward countries harbouring terrorists. Why were men who tried to prevent terrorist attacks against Cuba charged with espionage against the U.S.? And why does the U.S. continue to protect and harbour known terrorists?"
