REVIEW EXCERPTS ON RECENT BOOKS BY JAMES D. COCKCROFT, award-winning author of thirty-five books on Latin America, globalization, human rights, immigration, multiculturalism, and the arts.

(1) LATINO VISIONS: CONTEMPORARY CHICANO, PUERTO RICAN, AND CUBAN AMERICAN ARTISTS (Assisted by Jane Carolina Canning). Danbury, CT: Franklin Watts, 2000. Award: Annual List of Best Books for Young Adults, New York Public Library.

“This handsome book gives a brief overview of Hispanic art in the United States, dating back to santos—sacred images painted on animal hides in the 1500s and 1600s in the Southwest. It highlights some of the modern Spanish-speaking artists whose raw talent and tremendous creative energy contribute to the American art world…. Easy to read and understand, informative and visually attractive, this book will be enjoyed by art students, art lovers, and anyone with an interest in Hispanic culture. Young adult librarians need to look it over…. Better than most.”

“This is a superb introductory survey of Latino visual arts.… excellent selection for libraries, and as a high school text or adjunctive college text. The book's exposition is guided by respect for (and a complex undersanding of) the artists' works, a strategy that avoids pigeon-holing works which often do not fit well into conventional categories. Cockcroft is respectful of the people and their struggles, as well as knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the art. It is beautifully written. (Would that more such texts were written with such clarity as well as such a comprehensive and respectful perspective). It should be especially inspiring to young adult readers…expressed creatively with a wide variety of examples, accompanied by excellent photographic illustrations…. It is an impressive achievement, and a superior introduction to the artworks discussed, and also to their originating cultures and social and political and mystical beliefs.”

“Politics and the struggle for human rights are an integral part of this Latino art history. Whether Cockcroft is talking about the rediscovery of traditional Indian art, the community murals on city streets, or the culture of living on the border, "uprooted yet putting down roots," he makes you value "people's art," to be viewed not in imposing museums but as part of public life. At the same time, he does talk about individual Latino artists--one chapter each on Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, and Cuban Americans--with stirring detail about their images of beauty, magic, humor, family love, spiritual faith, and social commitment. It makes you want to see the individual works. Two inserts of full-color plates provide just a taste of the visual; there are also prints in black and white and several short, boxed biographies of leading artists. Chapter notes, bibliographies, and a list of online sites will help those who want to see more.”

“This clearly laid out book traces the social, political, and cultural events and traditions that have shaped Latino artists and their works. Exploring cultural and religious history as well as the function of identity as expressed in art, four chapters consider in turn the art of the Southwest santeros, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, and Cuban Americans. Specific artists are singled out and highlighted in sidebars. Their work is analyzed and, when possible, the artists speak for themselves. It is in these first-person "interview" sections that the book most vividly comes to life…. Aimed at an older audience than Harriet Rohmer's Just Like Me (Children's Book Pr., 1997), Latino Visions does much to elucidate the role of heritage in defining a worldview and an artistic response…. a sound and comprehensive source of information on several aspects of Latino art.”

(2) SALVADOR ALLENDE CHILE'S VOICE OF DEMOCRACY (Assisted by Jane Carolina Canning). Melbourne, Australia: Ocean Press, 2000. Spanish-language edition, Buenos Aires: América Libre & Universidad Popular de Madres de Plaza de Mayo, 2003.

“The scene is set by Kissinger’s chilling statement “I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist because of the irresponsibility of its own people”…. This book brings alive those heady days in 1970 when Allende was swept to power and his attempts over the next three years to build socialism in Chile. This story has been erased from Chilean history, and this book does the international progressive movement a great favour by presenting Allende’s voice and his vision of a more democratic, peaceful and just world to a new generation, without spin or interpretation…. Much has been written about globalism and neoliberalism; Salvador Allende was talking about the same issues…. Salvador Allende’s name lives on as the hero of his people, while Pinochet has become an international pariah who is now being deserted by even his closest fellow murderers. This book is an inspiration to read. It tells, in his own words, one man’s attempt to construct socialism in Chile…. It is well indexed and is not cluttered by too many footnotes or references. It is well edited and translated…. request that your local public library adds a copy to its stock. < Global Book Marketing, London>

“Contained in this volume is a substantial collection of articles, speeches and other writing – many for the first time in English – which span the career of this remarkable Marxist politician. And coupled with an excellent introduction by the editor, as well as two superb and easy to follow chronologies outlining Allende's life, and the events which led to his murder, many who have only a vague understanding of what occurred in Chile, and how it affected the next twenty years, will come away with a much deeper insight into the issues…. President Clinton has formally apologized to the entire South American Continent for the egregious abuses inflicted on millions by U.S. foreign policy actions. He could not have chosen a better example of this than what happened in Chile in 1973…. Ocean Press and James Cockcroft are to be commended for this timely volume. We need more, much more, of this information so vital to any attempt to make sense out of the intrigues in our foreign policy in the period from 1945 to the present.”

(3) MEXICO’S HOPE: AN ENCOUNTER WITH POLITICS AND HISTORY. New York: Monthly Review Press, 1999. 435 pages; tables, notes; index; Spanish-language edition, Mexico: Siglo veintiuno editores, 2001.

“[Cockcroft’s] profound ability to link social struggles to historical process…. expertly blends analysis of political economy with discussion of class struggle and popular resistance. Through this blending, Cockcroft deftly [provides]…an analysis of how Mexico’s uneven development has impacted and shaped society with regards to class, race, and gender. Cockcroft’s historical analysis is…cogent and nuanced…making this an interpretive history that will be consulted by students, scholars, and activists for years to come.

“...tells the dramatic story of the making of modern Mexico. In the course of providing compelling analysis of the causes for the vast divide between Mexico's rich and poor, James Cockcroft illuminates the stark contrast between the country's corrupt political system and its people's democratic aspirations…. particular attention to the contributions of women, Native Americans, workers, and peasants…. recommended reading for anyone wanting a succinct and articulate overview of contemporary Mexican politics and economic development.”

“The political-economic, indigenous and women's viewpoints are not just
juxtaposed, they are analytically integrated in a vigorous prose. Clearly and forcefully written, accompanied by 17 tables, and with extensive notes, Cockcroft’s ‘Mexico’s Hope’ represents the most forceful analysis, and at the same time the most sophisticated and subtle general history of Mexico available…. Cockcroft has written a multicultural and gendered history of Mexico which responds to the contemporary problematic…. comprehensive and compelling synthesis…. incorporates not only recent scholarship, but also reflects the impact of new social movements…. above all, this book is a good read…. ‘Mexico’s Hope’ will no doubt become a standard in Latin American and Mexican history courses, but labor unionists, human rights workers, social movement activists, and anyone interested in our nearest neighbor should buy and read this book. University, high school and public libraries should add this book to their collections, for it will find many readers.”

“The stunning defeat of the governing party in the elections of July 2000…confirms his main contention: the old system, stable for so many decades, cannot endure unchanged. Mexico’s hope is that previously excluded groups will be able to demand and receive greater social justice. Cockcroft focuses on structural changes rather than the more dramatic, and more ephemeral, political events that are the stuff of conventional histories…. This social history is an impressive literary as well as scholarly work. James Cockcroft, author of many important books on Mexico and Latin America, has managed here to organize complex and seemingly unconnected events stretching over six centuries into an especially compelling narrative of the still unresolved struggle for control of the country’s wealth and destiny.”

(4) TOWARD A PEOPLE'S ART: THE CONTEMPORARY MURAL MOVEMENT (with J. Weber, E. Cockcroft). Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1999, revised edition of 1977 E.P.Dutton classic with 1977 Foreword by Jean Charlot, new foreword by Lucy Lippard and updated accounts by Tim Drescher and Ben Keppel; photog.s in color & b&w.

“This…returns a classic to library shelves…. From the muralists’ works to the involvement of the community and funding sources, this provides an excellent survey of mural creation and politics.”

“This book…is an important documentation of the attempt to remove art from the ‘elitist’ confines of the museum and gallery and restore it to the people…. The authors provide the reader ample evidence of the warmth of human discovery and communication that can be triggered by art.”

“…history of the political and social impulses that have brought graffiti out of the gutter and into the galleries…beautiful color plates and black-and-white photos documenting the growth of mural art all across the United States…. a good job of capturing the heart of the movement, that heart being the people who do big, culturally driven art in public spaces…. a good way to better understand the murals that decorate so much of the public space.”

(5) LATIN AMERICA: HISTORY, POLITICS, AND U.S. POLICY. NY: Harper & Row, 1989; revised ed., Chicago: Nelson-Hall Publishers, 1997; second ed., Belmont, CA: Wadsworth/International Thomson Publishing, 1998; maps, photog.s, doc.s, bib., chron., index; Spanish-language edition, Mexico: Siglo veintiuno editores, 2001; Havana: Instituto Cubano del Libro, Ciencias Sociales, 2004.

“This second edition…melds perspectives from the US official position, from Latin American countries, and from US groups opposed to the US official position. Chapters devoted to each country in the region begin with a dramatized scene vivifying a controversial issue; and section overviews explain continuing themes such as revolution, nationalism, and human rights. Includes b&w photos and official policy documents. This edition offers expanded material on Cuba, and chapter bibliographies of print and nonprint resources.”

Review excerpts on what was said about first edition:

"This is certainly the best existing text on Latin America oriented towards a contemporary focus...in history, political science, and sociology."

"An effective teaching device.... other texts lack the depth of analysis."

"Most authoritative account...crisp and lively...every chapter I read would stand well against more specialized country studies...the only text emphasizing current issues which covers all major and minor Latin American nations." of History, Florida State University>

"Energetic prose...most useful."

"One of the few books prepared to provide a short, concise and current overview of Latin America under one cover and from an often revisionist perspective...a powerful teaching tool." Hemisphere>

"Facts are presented from several views...well written, balanced...excellent, integrated interpretation...fills a void, especially political science, sociology, and history."

"A major contribution...a wonderful book, very rich in analysis."

(6) LATINOS IN THE MAKING OF THE UNITED STATES. Danbury, CT: Franklin Watts, 1995, photos, bib., index. Award: Annual List of Best Books for Young Adults, New York Public Library.

“…one of the book’s greater accomplishments is that it places the struggles of Latinos in the U.S. in the larger framework of American history.”

“…a well-researched and well-indexed resource for reports.”

“…an in-depth history by a well-known scholar in the field…. There’s a lot of information here…everything is well documented in chapter notes…. Students researching U.S. history and immigration issues will be caught by Cockcroft’s knowledge and commitment and by his call for ‘economic democracy.’”

(7) LATINOS IN THE STRUGGLE FOR EQUAL EDUCATION. Danbury, CT: Franklin Watts, 1995, photos, bib., index. Award: Annual List of Best Books for Young Adults, New York Public Library.

“…a well written, thoroughly researched and passionate work.”

(8) THE HISPANIC STRUGGLE FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE. Danbury, CT: Franklin Watts, 1994, photos, bib., index. Award: Annual List of Best Books for Young Adults, New York Public Library.

“This book is exceptional in its engaging prose, solid scholarship and timely topic.”

“He demonstrates how Latinos were among the earliest organizers of the labor union movement…. ideally suited for introductory-level courses on Latino issues.”

“The history is compelling, and clear chapter source notes at the back will help readers to find out more about these Americans whose stories are just beginning to be told.”

(9) DANIEL ORTEGA. NY: Chelsea House, 1991, photog.s, bib., chron., index. Award: Annual List of Best Books for Young Adults, New York Public Library.

"Cockcroft's study is more than a biography. In an easy﷓to﷓read, objective style requiring no background research, he introduces the political history of Nicaragua.... A welcome addition to the existing literature on Nicaragua."

"An important and influential work...without doubt the best...the one book to pick up."

"Outstanding...essential reading."

"Strengthened by his attention throughout to women's problems and achievements."

"Breaks refreshingly with the ideological underpinnings of nearly all scholarship on Mexico.... a cogent and, at times, convincing version of why the bubble burst...a plausible explanation for the course of that country's history."

"A landmark book that could become a Mexicanist classic comparable to Barbarous Mexico...analytically superior....outstanding book."

"A pioneering work that guts fashionable theories in its brilliant analysis of the role of the poor in capital accumulation."

"It utilizes its sources deftly and presents findings in a focused manner...gives us pause to rethink our positions on modern Mexico."

"Lucid, detailed...a solid piece of scholarship...will become the standard by which other works on Mexico will be judged."

"Comprehensive social history."

"Most comprehensive analysis...in one volume."

"The Introduction explodes...This timely book contains the first comprehensive social history of Mexico in more than a decade....Many teachers will find in this book a classroom text...right on target."

"The writing is objective, including bad points as well as good.... an excellent resource."

"Cockcroft authoritatively details the abuses, while acknowledging some positive aspects.... excellent background of Iranian society."

"...not a conventional biography...a worst﷓case scenario of U.S. involvement in Iran...the whole sorry story emerges."

SUMMARY:

DR. JAMES COCKCROFT (Ph.D., Stanford University, 1966, Sociology, History, Political Science, with a Latin America/U.S./Europe/Development focus) is a three﷓time Fulbright Scholar, two-time guest professor in Mexico (UNAM and UAM), former Ford Fellow and Peace Corps consultant, 1988 University of California Regents Lecturer, 2000-2004 Fellow at the International Institute for Research and Education (IIRE) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and State University of New York-Empire and SUNY Learning Network professor.
