2 ALONSO, ANDONI; OIARZABAL, PEDRO J. Diasporas In The New Media Age: Identity, Politics, And Community.
University of Nevada Press, Reno: 2010. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The explosion of digital information and communication technologies has influenced almost every aspect of contemporary life. Diasporas in the New Media Age examines the social use of these technologies by emigrants and diasporas around the world. The eighteen original essays in the book explore the personal, familial, and social impact of modern communication technology on populations of European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, and Latin American emigrants. It also looks at the role and transformation of such concepts as identity, nation, culture, and community in the era of information technology and economic globalization. The contributors take a range of approaches—empirical, theoretical, and rhetorical—and combine case studies with thoughtful analysis. The contributors offer important insights into the ways that dispersed populations are using digital media to maintain ties with their families and homeland, and to create new communities that preserve their culture and reinforce their sense of identity. In looking at the impact of new media on emigrant populations, the book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the impact of technology on society in general. Andoni Alonso received his Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of the Basque Country. He has been a visiting scholar at Penn State and at the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. He is associate professor of philosophy at the University of Extremadura, Spain. He is the author of many articles and books, including Basque Cyberculture: From Digital Euskadi to Cyber Euskalherria. Pedro J. Oiarzabal is a research scholar at the University of Deusto (Bilbao). He is the author of numerous articles as well as books on migration and identity, including Gardeners of Identity: Basques in the San Francisco Bay Area. "This is really an exciting book. The more I read it, the more enthusiastic I became. This is a genuinely original and challenging work of interdisciplinary scholarship and constitutes an important contribution to a number of fields." — Carl Mitcham, author of Thinking Through Technology: The Path Between Engineering and Philosophy

Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. Ilex Series 16. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In Erin and Iran, ten essays by North American and European scholars discuss parallel themes in and interactions between Irish and Iranian cultures. In the first section three essays explore common elements in pre-Christian Irish and pre-Islamic Iranian mythologies, common elements that have often been pointed out by scholars of Indo-European mythology but rarely examined in detail. In the following section four essays address literary subjects, ranging from medieval romances such as Tristan and Isolde and Vis and Ramin to twentieth-century novels such as James Joyce's Ulysses and Simin Daneshvar's Savushun. In the last section three nineteenth-century travelogues are presented, two written by Irish travelers to Iran and one written by an Indo-Persian traveler to Ireland. Together, these studies constitute the first-ever collection of articles dealing with cultural encounters between the Irish and the Iranians. H. E. Chehabi is Professor of International Relations and History at Boston University. Grace Neville is Professor Emeritus of French at University College Cork.

11 GARRARD-BURNETT, VIRGINIA; LAWRENCE, MARK ATWOOD & MORENO, JULIO E. (EDITORS). Beyond The Eagle's Shadow: New Histories Of Latin America's Cold War.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The dominant tradition in writing about U.S.-Latin American relations during the Cold War views the United States as all-powerful. That perspective, represented in the metaphor "talons of the eagle," continues to influence much scholarly work down to the present day. The goal of this collection of essays is not to write the United States out of the picture but to explore the ways Latin American governments, groups, companies, organizations and individuals promoted their own interests and perspectives. The book also challenges the tendency among scholars to see the Cold War as a simple clash of "left" and "right." In various ways, several essays disassemble those categories and explore the complexities of the Cold War as it was experienced beneath the level of great-power relations. Virginia Garrard-Burnett is professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin. Her most recent book is Terror in the Land of the Holy Spirit: Guatemala under General Efraín Ríos Montt, 1982-1983. Mark Atwood Lawrence is associate professor of history and distinguished scholar at the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas at Austin. His most recent book is The Vietnam War: A Concise International History. Julio Moreno, associate professor of history at the University of San Francisco, is the author of Yankee Don't Go Home!: Mexican Nationalism, American Business Culture, and the Shaping of Modern Mexico, 1920-1950.

13 HERZOG, TAMAR. Frontiers Of Possession: Spain And Portugal In Europe And The Americas.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Frontiers of Possession asks how territorial borders were established in Europe and the Americas during the early modern period and challenges the standard view that national boundaries are largely determined by military conflicts and treaties. Focusing on Spanish and Portuguese claims in the New and Old Worlds, Tamar Herzog reconstructs the different ways land rights were negotiated and enforced, sometimes violently, among people who remembered old possessions or envisioned new ones: farmers and nobles, clergymen and missionaries, settlers and indigenous peoples. Questioning the habitual narrative that sees the Americas as a logical extension of the Old World, Herzog portrays Spain and Portugal on both sides of the Atlantic as one unified imperial space. She begins in the Americas, where Iberian conquerors had to decide who could settle the land, who could harvest fruit and cut timber, and who had river rights for travel and trade. The presence of indigenous peoples as enemies to vanquish or allies to befriend, along with the vastness of the land, complicated the picture, as did the promise of unlimited wealth. In Europe, meanwhile, the formation and re-formation of boundaries could last centuries, as ancient entitlements clashed with evolving economic conditions and changing political views and juridical doctrines regarding how land could be acquired and maintained. Herzog demonstrates that the same fundamental questions had to be addressed in Europe and in the Americas. Territorial control was always subject to negotiation, as neighbors and outsiders, in their quotidian interactions, carved out and defended new frontiers of possession. Tamar Herzog is Monroe Gutman Professor of Latin American Affairs and Radcliffe Alumnae Professor at Harvard University. "Herzog succeeds in her aim of moving beyond the usually separate histories of Spain and Portugal—and of Europe and the Americas—to complicate the accepted understanding of national and imperial boundaries as immutable facts rather than as ongoing sites of contestation."—William O'Connor, The Daily Beast "The best account we now have of the long legal and political rivalry between the world's first modern imperial powers."—Anthony Pagden, author of The Enlightenment and Why It Still Matters

19 LOWE, LISA. The Intimacies Of Four Continents.
Duke University Press, Durham and London:2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In this uniquely interdisciplinary work, Lisa Lowe examines the relationships between Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas in the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth- centuries, exploring the links between colonialism, slavery, imperial trades and Western liberalism. Reading across archives, canons, and continents, Lowe connects the liberal narrative of freedom overcoming slavery to the expansion of Anglo-American empire, observing that abstract promises of freedom often obscure their embeddedness within colonial conditions. Race and social difference, Lowe contends, are enduring remainders of colonial processes through which "the human" is universalized and "freed" by liberal forms, while the peoples who create the conditions of possibility for that freedom are assimilated or forgotten. Analyzing the archive of liberalism alongside the colonial state archives from which it has been separated, Lowe offers new methods for interpreting the past, examining events well documented in archives, and those matters absent, whether actively suppressed or merely deemed insignificant. Lowe invents a mode of reading intimately, which defies accepted national boundaries and disrupts given chronologies, complicating our conceptions of history, politics, economics, and culture, and ultimately, knowledge itself. Lisa Lowe is Professor of English and American Studies at Tufts University. She is the author of Immigrant Acts: On Asian American Cultural Politics and the coeditor of The Politics of Culture in the Shadow of Capital. "This is a challenging book, which should be read by all those interested in the history of capitalism and the formation of the social sciences. ...There is much to enjoy in each of these chapters, especially, the dialectical interweaving of liberal conceptions and their negation, and the careful delineation of context and claim. Ultimately, however, the book is a dissection of liberalism and its fractured and fracturing presence in the modern world." — John Holmwood, Theory, Culture & Society "Lisa Lowe's ambitious new book is a reminder of the deft footwork now required of anyone attempting to negotiate this tricky terrain. In The Intimacies of Four Continents she aligns herself with postcolonial scholars like Ann Laura Stoler, Antoinette Burton, or Nayan Shah who have each provided a distinctive take on how 'the "intimate" sphere of sexual, reproductive, or household relations' served as 'a site of empire'." — David Glover, New Formations "... a persuasive account of how the abstract promises of abolition, emancipation, free wage labor, and free trade did not contradict colonial rule and slavery but rather accommodated them." — Betty Joseph, American Historical Review
