LIBROS La media luz de las relaciones carnales

NESTOR KOHAN.

Simón Bolívar ya lo había profetizado: "Los Estados Unidos parecen destinados por la Providencia para plagar América de miserias en nombre de la libertad". Desde entonces hasta hoy las relaciones de Estados Unidos con América latina han sido cualquier cosa menos apacibles.

James D.Cockcroft, profesor de LASA (Latin American Studies Association, la organización profesional de latinoamericanistas de Estados Unidos), se propone en América latina y Estados Unidos. Historia y política país (siglo XXI) desenredar, por país, la relación siempre tormentosa entre los dos subcontinentes.

Latino Visions


Latino Visions

Jane Canning

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-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. Most artists address the formative role of their traditional social milieu and the sense of difference from mainstream Anglo society, noting these as determinative elements in creating their unique styles. Frequent black-and-white illustrations and photographs of the artists extend the pedantic text, as do two sections of color plates. 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. This is certainly not pleasure reading, but it does provide a sound and comprehensive source of information on several aspects of Latino art.-Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA

Toward a People's Art: The Contemporary Mural Movement


Toward a People's Art: The Contemporary Mural Movement

Eva Cockcroft, John Pitman Weber

First published in 1977, Toward a People's Art remains a classic study of the community-based mural movement that produced hundreds of large-scale wall paintings in the United States and Canada. The authors provide a comprehensive discussion of the muralists, the murals' effects on the community, and the funding these works received.

Those interested in art and social change will welcome this new edition, which represents an ongoing faith in the ideal of participatory democracy as the best way to confront the nation's social problems and in the potential of activist art to have long-term social impact. The introduction describes the era-the late 1960s-and a new afterword looks at the 1980s and 1990s and the continuing commitment to the community-engaged process of making public art.
