Book Short Summary:

Between 1980 and 1994, Peru endured a bloody internal armed conflict, with some 69,000 people killed in clashes involving two insurgent movements, state forces, and local armed groups. In 2003, a government-sponsored “Truth and Reconciliation Committee” reported that the conflict lasted longer, affected broader swaths of the national territory, and inflicted higher costs, in both human and economic terms, than did any other conflict in Peru’s history. Of those killed, 75 percent were speakers of an indigenous language, and almost 40 percent were among the poorest and most rural members of Peruvian society. These unequal impacts of the violence on the Peruvian people revealed deep and historical disparities within the country. This collection of original essays by leading international experts on Peruvian politics, society, and institutions explores the political and institutional consequences of Peru’s internal armed conflict in the long 1980s. The essays are grouped into sections that cover the conflict itself in historical, comparative, and theoretical perspectives; its consequences for Peru’s political institutions; its effects on political parties across the ideological spectrum; and its impact on public opinion and civil society. This research provides the first systematic and nuanced investigation of the extent to which recent and contemporary Peruvian politics, civil society, and institutions have been shaped by the country’s 1980s violence.

Book Short Summary:

The Andes form the backbone of South America. Irradiating from Cuzco--the symbolic "navel" of the indigenous world--the mountain range was home to an extraordinary theocratic empire and civilization, the Incas, who built stone temples, roads, palaces, and forts. The clash between Atahualpa, the last Inca, and the illiterate conquistador Pizarro, between indigenous identity and European mercantile values, has forged Andean culture and history for the last 500 years. Jason Wilson explores the 5,000-mile chain of volcanoes, deep valleys, and upland plains, revealing the Andes' mystery, inaccessibility, and power through the insights of chroniclers, scientists, and modern-day novelists. His account starts at sacred Cuzco and Machu Picchu, moves along imagined Inca routes south to Lake Titicaca, La Paz, Potos?, and then follows the Argentine and Chilean Andes to Patagonia. It then moves north through Chimborazo, Quito, and into Colombia, along the Cauca Valley up to Bogot? and east to Caracas. Looking at the literature inspired by the Andes as well as its turbulent history, this book brings to life the region's spectacular landscapes and the many ways in which they have been imagined.

Book Short Summary:

Peru is classified as one of the deadliest countries in the world for environmental defenders, where activists face many forms of violence. Through an ethnographic and systematic comparison of four gold-mining conflicts in Peru, Resisting Extractivism presents a vivid account of subtle and routine forms of violence, analyzing how meaning-making practices render certain types of damage and suffering noticeable while occluding others. The book thus builds a theory of violence from the ground up—how it is framed, how it impacts people’s lived experiences, and how it can be confronted. By excavating how the everyday interactions that underlie conflicts are discursively concealed and highlighted, this study assists in the prevention and transformation of violence over resource extraction in Latin America. The book draws on a controlled, qualitative comparison of four case studies, extensive ethnographic research conducted over fourteen months of fieldwork, analysis of over nine hundred archives and documents, and unprecedented access to more than 250 semi-structured interviews with key actors across industry, the state, civil society, and the media. Michael Wilson Becerril identifies, traces, and compares these dynamics to explain how similar cases can lead to contrasting outcomes—insights that may be usefully applied in other contexts to save lives and build better futures.

Book Short Summary:

The Contemporary Spanish-American Novel provides an accessible introduction to an important World literature. While many of the authors covered-Aira, Bolaño, Castellanos Moya, Vásquez-are gaining an increasing readership in English and are frequently taught, there is sparse criticism in English beyond book reviews.

Underestimated or unfamiliar Spanish American novels and novelists are introduced through conceptually rigorous essays. Sections on each writer include: *the author's reception in their native country, Spanish America, and Spain *biographical history *a critical examination of their work, including key themes and conceptual concerns *translation history *scholarly reception The Contemporary Spanish-American Novel offers an authoritative guide to a rich and varied novelistic tradition. It covers all demographic areas, including United States Latino authors, in exploring the diversity of this literature and its major themes, such as exile, migration, and gender representation.

After Human Rights

Book Short Summary:

Fernando J. Rosenberg explores Latin American artistic production concerned with the possibility of justice after the establishment, rise, and ebb of the human rights narrative around the turn of the last century. Prior to this, key literary and artistic projects articulated Latin American modernity by attempting to address and supplement the state’s inability to embody and enact justice. Rosenberg argues that since the topics of emancipation, identity, and revolution no longer define social concerns, Latin American artistic production is now situated at a point where the logic and conditions of marketization intersect with the notion of rights through which subjects define themselves politically. Rosenberg grounds his study in discussions of literature, film, and visual art (novels of political refoundations, fictions of truth and reconciliation, visual arts based on cases of disappearance, films about police violence, artistic collaborations with police forces, and judicial documentaries). In doing so, he provides a highly original examination of the paradoxical demands on current artistic works to produce both capital value and foster human dignity.

  • Pdf File: the-legal-thriller-from-gardner-to-grisham.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book offers a critically informed yet relaxed historical overview of the legal thriller, a unique contribution to crime fiction where most of the titles have been written by professionals such as lawyers and judges. The legal thriller typically uses court trials as the suspense-creating background for presenting legal issues reflecting a wide range of concerns, from corporate conflicts to private concerns, all in a dramatic but highly informed manner. With authors primarily from the USA and the UK, the genre is one which nonetheless enjoys a global reading audience. As well as providing a survey of the legal thriller, this book takes a gender–focused approach to analyzing recently published titles within the field. It also argues for the fascination of the legal thriller both in the way its narrative pattern parallels that of an actual court trial, and by the way it reflects, frequently quite critically, the concerns of contemporary society.

Book Short Summary:

In Cruel Modernity, Jean Franco examines the conditions under which extreme cruelty became the instrument of armies, governments, rebels, and rogue groups in Latin America. She seeks to understand how extreme cruelty came to be practiced in many parts of the continent over the last eighty years and how its causes differ from the conditions that brought about the Holocaust, which is generally the atrocity against which the horror of others is measured. In Latin America, torturers and the perpetrators of atrocity were not only trained in cruelty but often provided their own rationales for engaging in it. When "draining the sea" to eliminate the support for rebel groups gave license to eliminate entire families, the rape, torture, and slaughter of women dramatized festering misogyny and long-standing racial discrimination accounted for high death tolls in Peru and Guatemala. In the drug wars, cruelty has become routine as tortured bodies serve as messages directed to rival gangs. Franco draws on human-rights documents, memoirs, testimonials, novels, and films, as well as photographs and art works, to explore not only cruel acts but the discriminatory thinking that made them possible, their long-term effects, the precariousness of memory, and the pathos of survival.

The Circulation of Children

Book Short Summary:

In this vivid ethnography, Jessaca B. Leinaweaver explores “child circulation,” informal arrangements in which indigenous Andean children are sent by their parents to live in other households. At first glance, child circulation appears tantamount to child abandonment. When seen in that light, the practice is a violation of international norms regarding children’s rights, guidelines that the Peruvian state relies on in regulating legal adoptions. Leinaweaver demonstrates that such an understanding of the practice is simplistic and misleading. Her in-depth ethnographic analysis reveals child circulation to be a meaningful, pragmatic social practice for poor and indigenous Peruvians, a flexible system of kinship that has likely been part of Andean lives for centuries. Child circulation may be initiated because parents cannot care for their children, because a childless elder wants company, or because it gives a young person the opportunity to gain needed skills. Leinaweaver provides insight into the emotional and material factors that bring together and separate indigenous Andean families in the highland city of Ayacucho. She describes how child circulation is intimately linked to survival in the city, which has had to withstand colonialism, economic isolation, and the devastating civil war unleashed by the Shining Path. Leinaweaver examines the practice from the perspective of parents who send their children to live in other households, the adults who receive them, and the children themselves. She relates child circulation to international laws and norms regarding children’s rights, adoptions, and orphans, and to Peru’s history of racial conflict and violence. Given that history, Leinaweaver maintains that it is not surprising that child circulation, a practice associated with Peru’s impoverished indigenous community, is alternately ignored, tolerated, or condemned by the state.

Ugly Stories of the Peruvian Agrarian Reform

  • Pdf File: ugly-stories-of-the-peruvian-agrarian-reform.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Ugly Stories of the Peruvian Agrarian Reform reveals the human drama behind the radical agrarian reform that unfolded in Peru during the final three decades of the twentieth century. That process began in 1969, when the left-leaning military government implemented a drastic program of land expropriation. Seized lands were turned into worker-managed cooperatives. After those cooperatives began to falter and the country returned to civilian rule in the 1980s, members distributed the land among themselves. In 1995–96, as the agrarian reform process was winding down and neoliberal policies were undoing leftist reforms, the Peruvian anthropologist Enrique Mayer traveled throughout the country, interviewing people who had lived through the most tumultuous years of agrarian reform, recording their memories and their stories. While agrarian reform caused enormous upheaval, controversy, and disappointment, it did succeed in breaking up the unjust and oppressive hacienda system. Mayer contends that the demise of that system is as important as the liberation of slaves in the Americas. Mayer interviewed ex-landlords, land expropriators, politicians, government bureaucrats, intellectuals, peasant leaders, activists, ranchers, members of farming families, and others. Weaving their impassioned recollections with his own commentary, he offers a series of dramatic narratives, each one centered around a specific instance of land expropriation, collective enterprise, and disillusion. Although the reform began with high hopes, it was quickly complicated by difficulties including corruption, rural and urban unrest, fights over land, and delays in modernization. As he provides insight into how important historical events are remembered, Mayer re-evaluates Peru’s military government (1969–79), its audacious agrarian reform program, and what that reform meant to Peruvians from all walks of life.

Book Short Summary:

Peru's Truth and Reconciliation Commission not only documented the political violence of the 1980s and 1990s but also gave Peruvians a unique opportunity to examine the causes and nature of that violence. In Art from a Fractured Past, scholars and artists expand on the commission's work, arguing for broadening the definition of the testimonial to include various forms of artistic production as documentary evidence. Their innovative focus on representation offers new and compelling perspectives on how Peruvians experienced those years and how they have attempted to come to terms with the memories and legacies of violence. Their findings about Peru offer insight into questions of art, memory, and truth that resonate throughout Latin America in the wake of "dirty wars" of the last half century. Exploring diverse works of art, including memorials, drawings, theater, film, songs, painted wooden retablos (three-dimensional boxes), and fiction, including an acclaimed graphic novel, the contributors show that art, not constrained by literal truth, can generate new opportunities for empathetic understanding and solidarity.

Book Short Summary:

From Borges to Garca Mrquez, Vargas Llosa, Maras or Bolao , the Spanish language has given us some of the 20th century's most beloved writers. But as the reach of Spanish culture extends far beyond Spain and Latin America, and the US tilts towards a majority Hispanic population, the time is right to ask who and what is next in Spanish-language fiction? In this, the first translated issue of Granta's Best of Young Novelists, a distinguished panel of six judges - Edgardo Cozarinsky, Isabel Hilton, Francisco Goldman, Mercedes Monmany, and Granta en Espaol's publishers, Valerie Miles and Aurelio Major - looks to new writing across the Spanish-speaking world and asks, 'Who are the most promising novelists telling the stories from the old and new worlds today?' Granta 113, published simultaneously in Spain as Los mejores narradores jovenes en espaol, will showcase the work of 22 promising new writers. Granta's previous 'Best of Young Novelists' issues have been startlingly accurate crystal balls - first calling attention to the work of writers from Salman Rushdie to Jonathan Franzen to Zadie Smith. Here, for the first time in translation, we will again attempt to predict the stars of the future.

Book Short Summary:

A caballo entre la autobiografía y el ensayo cultural, el pensamiento crítico de Noemi se sitúa sobre dos momentos fundacionales del cambio de época en Chile y el mundo: las violencias de 1989 y 2001. La primera desplaza el eje de las hegemonías autoritarias de la Guerra Fría hacia democracias funcionales al capital y la segunda moviliza el horizonte de sentido hacia una Guerra Global material y simbólica. Lúcidamente el autor construye un modelo de análisis en que las metáforas de la tecnología y la velocidad le sirven para reflexionar sobre las representaciones del tiempo, del espacio y del sujeto. Cuidadosamente escrito, el ensayo interroga a una imprescindible selección de novelas para indagar sobre los imaginarios de Latinoamérica, sus nuevas fronteras y la manera en la que la literatura documenta la memoria del acontecer.

Book Short Summary:

La influencia de los maestros de la cultura pop en el universo narrativo hispanoamericano es un territorio todavía inexplorado. En esta antología, varios escritores de diferentes latitudes convergen bajo la influencia de Stephen King y le rinden tributo al famoso “maestro del terror”. Estas historias de tonalidades imposibles prueban que el terror sobrenatural no es una tradición ajena a nuestras letras sino que forma parte de un genuino interés generacional. El fantasma acechante de King ronda en estos cuentos, a veces como Pennywise, otras como un ser arcano venido de un más allá donde conviven reality shows con zombis. Los relatos, inspirados en el escritor norteamericano, se meten en una reunión de pacientes psiquiátricos, descubren seres sobrenaturales infiltrados en los movimientos militares latinoamericanos, narran experimentos espontáneos de física cuántica y presentan personajes oscuros como un doble maligno o demonios que acosan a niñas inocentes. Bienvenido, lector, a este inquietante homenaje: aquí hay canibalismo, locura y sectas religiosas. Aquí hay tigres.

Book Short Summary:

El autor ofrece un panorama de la literatura negra occidental desde sus orígenes en el siglo XIX con Poe y Doyle y la obra de los autores norteamericanos (Hammett y Chandler) hasta la literatura latinoamericana del siglo XX, para inscribir, en esta larga tradición, a la literatura colombiana contemporánea. De este modo, Forero Quintero expone cinco perspectivas de análisis de la obra de algunos escritores colombianos emblemáticos con sus propias representaciones literarias de la anomia: el monstruo en "El capítulo de Ferneli", de Hugo Chaparro Valderrama; el mito en "Leopardo al sol", de Laura Restrepo; la impunidad y la inducción al crimen en "La Virgen de los sicarios", de Fernando Vallejo; la confesión del personaje y la complicidad del lector en "Memorias de un hombre feliz", de Darío Jaramillo Agudelo, y la ley del narcotráfico en "Comandante Paraíso", de Gustavo Álvarez Gardeazábal. Libro en coedición con la Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia).

Book Short Summary:

Este libro es resultado del seminario realizado en el marco de la celebración de los 25 años del Programa de Estudios de Género de la PUCP. Es también la demostración del papel crucial de nuestra universidad en la promoción y producción de conocimiento en esta área de trabajo académico. El libro recoge aportes de importantes investigadores que forman parte de la Maestría en Estudios de Género, así como de profesores visitantes, entre los que destacan Rita Segato y Daniel Balderston. Los artículos reunidos estudian el género desde distintas perspectivas interdisciplinarias y abordan temas tales como las dimensiones de la violencia de género, la diversidad sexual, el amor romántico, la necesidad de una educación que reconozca las desigualdades de género en nuestro país y las múltiples aristas de las representaciones del género en la cultura contemporánea: el cine, los medios de comunicación masiva, los testimonios de la CVR y la tradición literaria peruana y latinoamericana.

Book Short Summary:

More than a decade ago, novelist Rodrigo Rey Rosa made his first visit to the Historical Archive of the Guatemala National Police, where millions of previously hidden records were being cataloged, scanned, and eventually published online. Bringing to light detailed evidence of crimes against humanity, the Archive Recovery Project inspired Rey Rosa to craft a meta-novel that weaves the language of arrest records and surveillance reports with the contemporary journal entries of a novelist (named Rodrigo) who is attempting to synthesize the stories of political activists, indigenous people, and other women and men who became ensnared in a deadly web of state-sponsored terrorism. When Rodrigo's access to the archive is suspended, he proceeds to the General Archives of Central America and the Library of Congress, also collaborating with the son of the Identification Bureau's former head in a relentless pursuit of understanding. Reminiscent of Roberto Bolaño's finely honed masterworks, Human Matter is both a tour de force of fiction and a sobering meditation on the realities of collective memory, raising timely questions about how our history is recorded and retold. Originally published in Spanish in 2009, its success demanded a subsequent publication in June of 2017.

Book Short Summary:

Los ensayos aquí reunidos, no obstante las perspectivas teóricas particulares y los enfoques diversos que adoptan en sus análisis, coinciden en referirse a ciertos problemas de fondo vinculados a la representación de la violencia extrema, como son las condiciones de producción, los mecanismos formales adoptados en la escritura, los efectos en el receptor, o las injerencias en el medio social provocadas por los textos literarios a la hora de articular violencia política, memoria, representación y justicia.

Book Short Summary:

Una modernidad cruel, de Jean Franco, aborda las condiciones que subsisten en América Latina y que obedecen a una naturaleza violenta. Hechos como las represiones por parte de los gobiernos, los grupos criminales y narcotraficantes, las revueltas y movimientos rebeldes, los atropellos a los derechos de los migrantes, han convertido a América Latina en una región donde impera la crueldad. Ese libro es una reflexión sobre tales condiciones de vida, misma que se han permeado en la vida cotidiana de estos países, y que sin duda representan un problema grave para las sociedades latinoamericanas.
