Un hito en la historia de Nicaragua que marcó al mundo para siempre, y que la UNESCO registró en las Memorias del Mundo en Junio del 2007 *El destino cambió los carriles a toda una columna de brigadistas quienes terminaron en selvas y aldeas desconocidas, donde pestes asesinas diezmaban a sus habitantes; y aprendieron a convivir y enseñar en el seno de familias extrañas, en medio de peligros, acosos, romances e intrigas. *Ante su llegada, una brigadista descubre a la madre de la familia que le toca alfabetizar, postrada en su cama y vomitando sangre, como resultado de la tuberculosis. Impotente y aterrada llora, cuando la misma le dice que mejor se vaya de ahí antes que también salga contagiada. *Una escuadra de brigadistas se pierden en la densidad de las selvas, en medio de una persecución de grupos contrarrevolucionarios, a partir de ahí inicia una lucha sin cuartel por la sobrevivencia. * Y todo un drama que al final demuestra que, aunque eran jóvenes adolescentes dispuestos a servir a una causa justa, eran de carne y hueso.

In an engrossing historical novel, the Newbery Medal-winning author of Bridge to Terebithia follows a young Cuban teenager as she volunteers for Fidel Castro’s national literacy campaign and travels into the impoverished countryside to teach others how to read. When thirteen-year-old Lora tells her parents that she wants to join Premier Castro’s army of young literacy teachers, her mother screeches to high heaven, and her father roars like a lion. Nora has barely been outside of Havana — why would she throw away her life in a remote shack with no electricity, sleeping on a hammock in somebody’s kitchen? But Nora is stubborn: didn’t her parents teach her to share what she has with someone in need? Surprisingly, Nora’s abuela takes her side, even as she makes Nora promise to come home if things get too hard. But how will Nora know for sure when that time has come? Shining light on a little-known moment in history, Katherine Paterson traces a young teen’s coming-of-age journey from a sheltered life to a singular mission: teaching fellow Cubans of all ages to read and write, while helping with the work of their daily lives and sharing the dangers posed by counterrevolutionaries hiding in the hills nearby. Inspired by true accounts, the novel includes an author’s note and a timeline of Cuban history.

Following their consciences in defiance of their government, some 2,800 young Americans between 1936 and 1938 joined the cause of Spanish democracy under the banner of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. Passing the Torch is an outspoken tribute to the heroism of the American volunteers of the 1930s and to their tradition of hope and resistance, which continues to inspire social activists to this day. A photoessay that captures the spirit of radicalism embodied in the brigadistas, this richly illustrated volume portrays Central American solidarity work in the 1980s, massive protests against the Gulf War in 1991, and the World Trade Organization "Battle in Seattle" in December 1999. It also profiles seven Seattle-area veterans, representative of the 120 surviving members of the Lincoln Brigade, and documents the dedication ceremony of the first public monument to the Brigade in the United States. All text is presented in Spanish and English.

Un libro fundamental para entender el alcance internacional de la Guerra Civil Española.¿Qué motiva a alguien para luchar por un país que no es el suyo? Desde los primeros compases de la Guerra Civil Española, esta se convirtió en una cuestión política internacional. Hitler y Mussolini enviaron aviones, tropas y suministros a los generales golpistas empeñados en derrocar al gobierno electo de España. Ante esta situación, millones de personas en todo el mundo sintieron que el fascismo que asolaba Europa debía ser detenido en España. Más de 35.000 voluntarios de decenas de países ayudaron a defender la República española.Hochschild, el aclamado autor de El fantasma del rey Leopoldo, evoca este período tumultuoso a través de las vidas de los estadounidenses involucrados en la guerra, entre los que se encontraban ciudadanos anónimos e intelectuales de la talla de Ernest Hemingway.España en el corazón muestra cómo las atrocidades de la guerra calaron en el espíritu de los voluntarios y se reflejaron en sus palabras. Este libro muestra cómo un grupo de personas lidió con la guerra y la interpretó para sus contemporáneos; y cómo, en especial el periodismo y la correspondencia entre personas influyentes, modelaron la dirección y el resultado de la contienda. "Los hombres de mi generación hemos tenido a España en nuestros corazones", escribía Camus en L'Espagne Libre, dando título a este elegante compendio de diarios de soldados, memorias periodísticas, reportajes, estrategias de batalla y cartas de amor tempestuosas.

Las guerras contemporáneas han generado relatos que merecen una especial atención por los valiosos datos que aportan a la reflexión sobre el presente y el futuro de los conflictos bélicos. Estos, además de marcar la vida de las personas anónimas, dejan importantes huellas que determinan el surgimiento de organizaciones y de movimientos sociales, y establecen las directrices del ejercicio diplomático. El presente libro está dedicado a los voluntarios paraguayos que se enrolaron en las Brigadas Internacionales durante la Guerra Civil española para defender la República. Las fotografías recogidas en estas páginas constituyen un testimonio de las vicisitudes que vivieron sus protagonistas y, a la vez, un magnífico ejercicio de recuperación de la memoria histórica.

Dengue fever is the world’s most prevalent mosquito-borne illness, but Alex Nading argues that people in dengue-endemic communities do not always view humans and mosquitoes as mortal enemies. Drawing on two years of ethnographic research in urban Nicaragua and challenging current global health approaches to animal-borne illness, Mosquito Trails tells the story of a group of community health workers who struggle to come to terms with dengue epidemics amid poverty, political change, and economic upheaval. Blending theory from medical anthropology, political ecology, and science and technology studies, Nading develops the concept of “the politics of entanglement” to describe how Nicaraguans strive to remain alive to the world around them despite global health strategies that seek to insulate them from their environments. This innovative ethnography illustrates the continued significance of local environmental histories, politics, and household dynamics to the making and unmaking of a global pandemic.

The Spanish Civil War served as an ideological and physical battleground for visionary Americans wishing to combat the spread of fascism. Harry Fisher was one such idealist who became a solider in the famed Abraham Lincoln Brigade, the American contingent of international volunteers dedicated to defeating Franco's forces. ø Fisher was one of the earliest American volunteers and one of the few to participate in all the major battles. Under a barrage of shells, bombs, and bullets for eighteen months, he lost his illusions about war's efficacy in solving political issues. To this day a despondence often overwhelms him when he recalls a family photograph he found jutting from the pocket of a slain fascist soldier. His involvement taught him that up close, the dead, whether fascist soldiers or his own fallen comrades, looked alike. ø This is a war story, simply told. Yet it is also a complex story about a young man testing his ideology in the harsh realities of battle.

The often bloody struggles of Central America have dominated news reports for a long time. Behind the headlines lies an enormous population of the desperately poor, and it is axiomatic that they are rendered even more powerless by widespread illiteracy. What actually counts as literacy is less clear. Archer and Costello describe some of the most exciting and innovative programmes designed to overcome the problem and how, as they worked with many of them, they discovered how varied and controversial they are. El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Ecuador, Mexico, Chile, Bolivia and Guatemala are all included, and for each country the authors have provided a thrilling account of the lives and circumstances of the people who both teach and learn as well as describing the varied forms that literacy teaching, even literacy itself, can take. This book is not only about literacy, but is also a guide to the societies of one of the world's most troubled regions. Originally published in 1990
Paulo Freire and the Cold War Politics of Literacy

In the twentieth century, illiteracy and its elimination were political issues important enough to figure in the fall of governments (as in Brazil in 1964), the building of nations (in newly independent African countries in the 1970s), and the construction of a revolutionary order (Nicaragua in 1980). This political biography of Paulo Freire (1921-97), who played a crucial role in shaping international literacy education, also presents a thoughtful examination of the volatile politics of literacy during the Cold War. A native of Brazil's impoverished northeast, Freire developed adult literacy training techniques that involved consciousness-raising, encouraging peasants and newly urban peoples to see themselves as active citizens who could transform their own lives. Freire's work for state and national government agencies in Brazil in the early 1960s eventually aroused the suspicion of the Brazilian military, as well as of U.S. government aid programs. Political pressures led to Freire's brief imprisonment, following the military coup of 1964, and then to more than a decade and a half in exile. During this period, Freire continued his work in Chile, Nicaragua, and postindependence African countries, as well as in Geneva with the World Council of Churches and in the United States at Harvard University. Andrew J. Kirkendall's evenhanded appraisal of Freire's pioneering life and work, which remains influential today, gives new perspectives on the history of the Cold War, the meanings of radicalism, and the evolution of the Left in Latin America.

Sesenta años después de la salida de los voluntarios internacionales participante en la guerra ciivl de 1936-1939, quedan todavía aspectos muy relevantes por analizar. La historiografía ha desentrañado hace ya tiempo el marco general de la intervención extranjera en el conflicto, pero quedan aún por cubrir algunos flancos que permanecen con bastantes interrogantes. Uno de ellos es la participación de los europeos procedentes de Europa Central y Oriental, región muy desconocida y, sin embargo, de gran importancia para la España republicana. En este texto se explican las causas que influyeron en la decisión de luchar en un enfrentamiento tan lejano a sus lugares de origen, la filiación ideológica, el número y la contribución de los voluntarios en la guerra por la libertad, así como la contribución peculiar de cada nacionalidad, según su propia tradición política y cultural. El monográfico, igualmente, provee de información sobre fuentes archivísticas escasamente conocidas que ofrecen una panorámica muy completa acerca de las características de estos brigadistas, cuyos problemas no acabaron con la despedida de sus tropas en el año 1938.
