Salazar by Book Resume:

Fifty years after his death, Portugal's Salazar remains a controversial and enigmatic figure, whose conservative and authoritarian legacy still divides opinion. Some see him as a reactionary and oppressive figure who kept Portugal backward, while others praise his honesty, patriotism and dedication to duty. Contemporary radicals are wary of his unabashed elitism and skepticism about social progress, but many conservatives give credit to his persistent warnings about the threats to Western civilization from runaway materialism and endless experimentation. For a dictator, Salazar's end was anti-climactic--a domestic accident. But during his nearly four decades in power, he survived less through reliance on force and more through guile and charm. This probing biography charts the highs and lows of Salazar's rule, from rescuing Portugal's finances and keeping his strategically-placed nation out of World War II to maintaining a police state while resisting the winds of change in Africa. It explores Salazar's long-running suspicion of and conflict with the United States, and how he kept Hitler and Mussolini at arm's length while persuading his fellow dictator Franco not to enter the war on their side. Iberia expert Tom Gallagher brings to life a complex leader who deserves to be far better known.

Statistical Confidentiality by George T. Duncan,Mark Elliot,Gonzalez Juan Jose Salazar Book Resume:

Because statistical confidentiality embraces the responsibility for both protecting data and ensuring its beneficial use for statistical purposes, those working with personal and proprietary data can benefit from the principles and practices this book presents. Researchers can understand why an agency holding statistical data does not respond well to the demand, “Just give me the data; I’m only going to do good things with it.” Statisticians can incorporate the requirements of statistical confidentiality into their methodologies for data collection and analysis. Data stewards, caught between those eager for data and those who worry about confidentiality, can use the tools of statistical confidentiality toward satisfying both groups. The eight chapters lay out the dilemma of data stewardship organizations (such as statistical agencies) in resolving the tension between protecting data from snoopers while providing data to legitimate users, explain disclosure risk and explore the types of attack that a data snooper might mount, present the methods of disclosure risk assessment, give techniques for statistical disclosure limitation of both tabular data and microdata, identify measures of the impact of disclosure limitation on data utility, provide restricted access methods as administrative procedures for disclosure control, and finally explore the future of statistical confidentiality.

Book for the Hour of Recreation by María de San José Salazar Book Resume:

María de San José Salazar (1548-1603) took the veil as a Discalced ("barefoot") Carmelite nun in 1571, becoming one of Teresa of Avila's most important collaborators in religious reform and serving as prioress of the Seville and Lisbon convents. Within the parameters of the strict Catholic Reformation in Spain, María fiercely defended women's rights to define their own spiritual experience and to teach, inspire, and lead other women in reforming their church. María wrote this book as a defense of the Discalced practice of setting aside two hours each day for conversation, music, and staging of religious plays. Casting the book in the form of a dialogue, María demonstrates through fictional conversations among a group of nuns during their hours of recreation how women could serve as very effective spiritual teachers for each other. The book includes one of the first biographical portraits of Teresa and Maria's personal account of the troubled founding of the Discalced convent at Seville, as well as her tribulations as an Inquisitional suspect. Rich in allusions to women's affective relationships in the early modern convent, Book for the Hour of Recreation also serves as an example of how a woman might write when relatively free of clerical censorship and expectations. A detailed introduction and notes by Alison Weber provide historical and biographical context for Amanda Powell's fluid translation.

Audrey Coltrane has always wanted to fly. It’s why she implored her father to teach her at the little airfield back home in Texas.

Then one fateful day, she gets caught in the air over Pearl Harbor just as the bombs begin to fall, and suddenly, nowhere feels safe. To make everything she’s lost count for something, Audrey joins the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. The bonds she forms with her fellow pilots reignite a spark of hope in the face war, and—when James goes missing in action—give Audrey the strength to cross the front lines and fight not only for her country, but for the love she holds so dear. “Captivated me from the first page and never let go...a powerful tale of courage and sacrifice by the Women Airforce Service Pilots during WWII.

Land of the Cranes by Aida Salazar Book Resume:

From the prolific author of The Moon Within comes the heart-wrenchingly beautiful story in verse of a young Latinx girl who learns to hold on to hope and love even in the darkest of places: a family detention center for migrants and refugees. Nine-year-old Betita knows she is a crane. Papi has told her the story, even before her family fled to Los Angeles to seek refuge from cartel wars in Mexico. The Aztecs came from a place called Aztlan, what is now the Southwest US, called the land of the cranes. They left Aztlan to establish their great city in the center of the universe-Tenochtitlan, modern-day Mexico City. It was prophesized that their people would one day return to live among the cranes in their promised land. Papi tells Betita that they are cranes that have come home.Then one day, Betita's beloved father is arrested by Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and deported to Mexico. Betita and her pregnant mother are left behind on their own, but soon they too are detained and must learn to survive in a family detention camp outside of Los Angeles. Even in cruel and inhumane conditions, Betita finds heart in her own poetry and in the community she and her mother find in the camp. The voices of her fellow asylum seekers fly above the hatred keeping them caged, but each day threatens to tear them down lower than they ever thought they could be. Will Betita and her family ever be whole again?

Cuba by Jorge Salazar-Carrillo,Andro Nodarse-Leon Book Resume:

This book is a study of Cuba’s economic development under communism over the last fifty-five years. The authors find that Cuba’s socioeconomic development has gone backward since the Cuban Revolution in 1959. The authors conclude that Fidel Castro’s revolution has been an economic disaster for Cuba. The book first outlines Cuba’s economic position prior to the revolution. It reviews Cuba’s rankings with respect to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita in the 1950s and examines the strength of pre-Castro Cuba’s foreign reserves and the health of its monetary system. It also presents pre-Castro Cuba’s investments in health care and education and documents the island’s development potential in the 1950s. The last few chapters describe the precipitous decline in all of these areas of Cuba’s economy under Castro. Despite the socioeconomic catastrophe of the Castro years, the authors envision a post-Castro Cuba, where this book can provide a benchmark to measure the developmental success that the Cuban work-ethic and entrepreneurial spirit can generate in a free-market system.

The Soils of Chile by Manuel Casanova,Osvaldo Salazar,Oscar Seguel,Walter Luzio Book Resume:

This book is intended for students and soil scientists who want to know about the state of the art in soil sciences in Chile. The book merges a comprehensive bibliographical review of the soil surveys carried out throughout the length and breadth of Chilean territory during the past 40 years and more recent information obtained by the authors in a number of field studies. As its starting point the book presents a general overview of important features related to Chilean soils, such as geology and geomorphology, climate, land use and vegetation. In this long and narrow country different soil formation factors and processes have resulted in a broad variety of soil bodies, from the extremely arid Atacama desert to the Patagonian and Antarctic zones. This book provides a description and classification (mainly Soil Taxonomy) of the most important soil types. Particularly important are soils derived from volcanic materials, which cover extensive areas of Chile. The book also deals with soil management topics in relation to the chemical, physical and biological properties of Chilean soils and it includes a number of examples from throughout the country. Finally, the book shows how man has induced severe soil degradation problems in Chile, such as erosive soil degradation, non-erosive soil degradation and land desertification.

Latin Fascist Elites: The Mussolini, Franco, and Salazar Regimes by Paul H. Lewis Book Resume:

Many dictatorships are short-lived, but a few manage to stay in power for decades. Lewis takes three Latin fascist tyrants—Mussolini, Franco, and Salazar—and shows how they perpetuated their rule through the careful recruitment and circulation of top-echelon subordinates to carry out their orders. Long-established dictatorships have to respond to political and social pressures surrounding them, just as democracies do, but it is harder to study them because they are closed systems. One possible way of viewing their internal processes is by observing who they recruit into top leadership positions. Every dictator, however powerful, must delegate some authortiy to an elite stratum just below him. By watching which kinds of men are recruited, how long they are kept in power, and whether different skills are sought at different times, it may be possible to chart the evolution of a 20- or 30-year regime. The Mussolini, Franco, and Salazar regimes all fit the criteria of being long-established. Mussolini ruled for almost 21 years, Franco for over 37, and Salazar for 36. Moreover, all three shared a family resemblance as being fascist. Comparing them affords the additional advantage of adding to our understanding of the Latin variant of fascism, as contrasted to the Central and Eastern European. A provocative work for scholars, students, and other researchers involved with European Politics, Modern European History, and fascist regimes.

Consensus and Debate in Salazar's Portugal by Ellen W. Sapega Book Resume:

Ellen Sapega’s study documents artistic responses to images of the Portuguese nation promoted by Portugal’s Office of State Propaganda under António de Oliveira Salazar. Combining archival research with current theories informing the areas of memory studies, visual culture, women’s autobiography, and postcolonial studies, the author follows the trajectory of three well-known cultural figures working in Portugal and its colonies during the 1930s and 1940s. The book begins with an analysis of official Salazarist culture as manifested in two state-sponsored commemorative events: the 1938 contest to discover the “Most Portuguese Village in Portugal” and the 1940 Exposition of the Portuguese-Speaking World. While these events fulfilled their role as state propaganda, presenting a patriotic and unambiguous view of Portugal’s past and present, other cultural projects of the day pointed to contradictions inherent in the nation’s social fabric. In their responses to the challenging conditions faced by writers and artists during this period and the government’s relentless promotion of an increasingly conservative and traditionalist image of Portugal, José de Almada Negreiros, Irene Lisboa, and Baltasar Lopes subtly proposed revisions and alternatives to official views of Portuguese experience. These authors questioned and rewrote the metaphors of collective Portuguese and Lusophone identity employed by the ideologues of Salazar’s Estado Novo regime to ensure and administer the consent of the national populace. It is evident, today, that their efforts resulted in the creation of vital, enduring texts and cultural artifacts.

Decolonizing Extinction by Juno Salazar Parreñas Book Resume:

In Decolonizing Extinction Juno Salazar Parreñas ethnographically traces the ways in which colonialism, decolonization, and indigeneity shape relations that form more-than-human worlds at orangutan rehabilitation centers on Borneo. Parreñas tells the interweaving stories of wildlife workers and the centers' endangered animals while demonstrating the inseparability of risk and futurity from orangutan care. Drawing on anthropology, primatology, Southeast Asian history, gender studies, queer theory, and science and technology studies, Parreñas suggests that examining workers’ care for these semi-wild apes can serve as a basis for cultivating mutual but unequal vulnerability in an era of annihilation. Only by considering rehabilitation from perspectives thus far ignored, Parreñas contends, could conservation biology turn away from ultimately violent investments in population growth and embrace a feminist sense of welfare, even if it means experiencing loss and pain.

An immigrant family scatters over a stolen continent. Oracles appear in public transit, and online. Bodies are transformed by nearby nickel mines. Doppelgangers, Catholic saints, and polyamorists alike pass on unusual inheritances. Deeply entangled in relations both emotional and ecological, this collection confronts the stories we tell about gender, queerness, race, religion, illness, and trauma, seeking new forms of care for a changing world.

Cuki a través de la Historia by María Nieves Angulo Salazar Book Resume:

—¡Qué agradable es compartir la vida con Cukín! —exclama doña Trifona cada vez que mira a su chow chow, cómodamente tumbado en su cestita o degustando chuletas y bollitos (manjares apropiados para un perro de capricho, como él dice). —¡Qué horrible es compartir la vida con Cukazo! —regruñe don Esculapio cuando pelea con su perro para obligarlo a salir de paseo o quitarle el mando de la tele. Pero hay algo en lo que sí están de acuerdo don Escu, doña Trifo e incluso Cuki: en que don Genaro Petrusco, un amigo de la familia que siempre se presenta en su casa a las horas de las comidas, es un pelmazo y no hay quien lo aguante... Especialmente desde que ganó en una tómbola una máquina del tiempo en la que los llevará a recorrer algunas de las principales civilizaciones de la Antigüedad.

Mega-Event Mobilities by Noel B. Salazar,Christiane Timmerman,Johan Wets,Luana Gama Gato,Sarah Van den Broucke Book Resume:

Global sports events are rarely far from the public eye. Such mega-events are about much more than the sporting competitions themselves. They entail global exposure and intense struggles by different stakeholders. This is the first book to examine sports mega-events from a mobilities perspective. It analyses the ‘mobile construction’ of global sports mega-events and the role this plays in managing labour, imaginaries, policies and legacies. In particular, the book focuses on the tension between the various mobilities and immobilities that are implied in the process of constructing a mega-event. It seeks to uncover the ways in which an event is a series of fluid interactions that occur sequentially and simultaneously at multiple scales in diverse spheres of interaction. Contributions explore the dynamics through which mega-events occur, revealing the textures and nuance of the complex systems that sustain them, and the ways that events ramify throughout the international system.

Tourism Imaginaries by Noel B. Salazar,Nelson H. H. Graburn Book Resume:

It is hard to imagine tourism without the creative use of seductive, as well as restrictive, imaginaries about peoples and places. These socially shared assemblages are collaboratively produced and consumed by a diverse range of actors around the globe. As a nexus of social practices through which individuals and groups establish places and peoples as credible objects of tourism, “tourism imaginaries” have yet to be fully explored. Presenting innovative conceptual approaches, this volume advances ethnographic research methods and critical scholarship regarding tourism and the imaginaries that drive it. The various authors contribute methodologically as well as conceptually to anthropology’s grasp of the images, forces, and encounters of the contemporary world.

Keywords of Mobility by Noel B. Salazar,Kiran Jayaram Book Resume:

Scholars from various disciplines have used key concepts to grasp mobilities, but as of yet, a working vocabulary of these has not been fully developed. Given this context and inspired in part by Raymond Williams’ Keywords (1976), this edited volume presents contributions that critically analyze mobility-related keywords: capital, cosmopolitanism, freedom, gender, immobility, infrastructure, motility, and regime. Each chapter provides an historical context, a critical analysis of how the keyword has been used in relation to mobility, and a conclusion that proposes future usage or research.

O Magriço by Tiago Salazar Book Resume:

D. Álvaro Gonçalves Coutinho - conhecido por Magriço por causa da sua figura débil - foi celebrizado numa passagem d'Os Lusíadas, que destaca a sua coragem entre os Doze de Inglaterra, cavaleiros portugueses que, no reinado de D. João I, participaram num combate que visava lavar a honra de doze damas ofendidas e do qual saíram vencedores. Porém, mesmo tratando-se de um cavaleiro de linhagem na Corte do Mestre de Avis, o Magriço não aceitou que o seu monarca lhe negasse casamento com a mulher que amava, partindo para a Borgonha onde lutou por mais de uma década entre os pares de João Sem Medo, que o considerou um dos mais destemidos guerreiros que alguma vez o serviram.Aventureiro, defensor de causas justas e sempre na senda de glória para os seus amos, Álvaro Coutinho era também um filho segundo, afastado da herança paterna, um homem amargo a quem a memória da desfeita do rei nunca abandonou, um guerreiro sem medo da morte, um ancião que resistiu à peste e se tornou uma espécie de eremita no fim da vida.Tiago Salazar, nesta que é a sua primeira incursão no romance histórico, instala-se de armas e bagagens na Idade Média e, vestindo a pele desta personagem controversa, dá-nos um testemunho das suas andanças e tribulações num relato em forma de autobiografia romanceada, ao jeito dos melhores livros de cavalaria, a que nunca falta uma pitada de colorido e humor.

Thinking with Soils by Juan Francisco Salazar,Céline Granjou,Matthew Kearnes,Anna Krzywoszynska,Manuel Tironi Book Resume:

This book presents a novel and systematic social theory of soil, and is representative of the rising interest in 'the material' in social sciences. Bringing together new modes of 'critical description' with speculative practices and methods of inquiry, it contributes to the exploration of current transformations in socioecologies, as well as in political and artistic practices, in order to address global ecological change. The chapters in this edited volume challenge scholars to attend more carefully to the ways in which they think about soil, both materially and theoretically. Contributors address a range of topics, including new ways of thinking about the politics of caring for soils; the ecological and symbiotic relations between soils; how the productive capacities and contested governance of soils are deployed as matters of political concern; and indigenous ways of knowing and being with soil.

Der Fluss ist eine Wunde voller Fische by Lorena Salazar Book Resume:

Ein außergewöhnliches Debüt von Kolumbiens literarischem Shooting-Star. Eine junge Mutter und ihr Sohn durchqueren in einem kleinen Boot den strömenden Fluss Atrato in Kolumbien. Sie ist weiß, er ist schwarz. Die beiden sind auf dem Weg zur leiblichen Mutter und im Laufe der Fahrt erfahren wir ihre gemeinsame Geschichte. Dabei fließt die Erzählung wie der Fluss, der sie trägt. Er ist die Ader der Landschaft, eines Urwalds voller Früchte, Tiere und Düfte, aber auch die Ader des menschlichen Lebens. Als der Junge entscheidet, bei wem er leben möchte, nimmt der Roman eine unerwartete Wendung ... Eine literarische Reise von großer Sinnlichkeit über die Zartheit des Mutterseins, die Kraft der Freundschaft und über die Abgründe, die unsere Herkunft mit sich bringen kann. »Ein Roman über atemberaubende Landschaften, Mutterängste und die Gewalt, die wie ein Tier im Dunkeln lauert.« Pilar Quintana. »In diesem schillernden, bewegenden Debüt führt uns Lorena Salazar in die Tiefen des kolumbianischen Dschungels und zeigt uns Schwesternschaft in ihrer reinsten Form.« Fernanda Melchor.
