"The one source that sets reference collections on Latin American studies apart from all other geographic areas of the world.... The Handbook has provided scholars interested in Latin America with a bibliographical source of a quality unavailable to scholars in most other branches of area studies." —Latin American Research Review Beginning with volume 41 (1979), the University of Texas Press became the publisher of the Handbook of Latin American Studies, the most comprehensive annual bibliography in the field. Compiled by the Hispanic Division of the Library of Congress and annotated by a corps of more than 130 specialists in various disciplines, the Handbook alternates from year to year between social sciences and humanities. The Handbook annotates works on Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and the Guianas, Spanish South America, and Brazil, as well as materials covering Latin America as a whole. Most of the subsections are preceded by introductory essays that serve as biannual evaluations of the literature and research under way in specialized areas. The Handbook of Latin American Studies is the oldest continuing reference work in the field. Lawrence Boudon, of the Library of Congress Hispanic Division, has been the editor since 2000, and Katherine D. McCann has been assistant editor since 1999. The subject categories for Volume 60 are as follows: Art History (including ethnohistory) Literature (including translations from the Spanish and Portuguese) Music Philosophy: Latin American Thought

"The Man Who Sued the Governor" is the featured introduction to a collection of short stories told by Jim Curry, a 70-year native from the high country in northern New Mexico. Some of his stories are true personal experiences, some are nearly true, and he says the rest ought to be true. It is hard to tell where the truth ends and fiction begins. There is both humor and tragedy, sometimes side by side. There is an immigrant you wish could stay, and one who behaved badly. Prospectors, governors, doctors, lawyers, hustlers, farmers, simple folk and complicated people, all tell their tales in a distinctly multi-cultural setting. He spent a third of his life in New Mexico schools, and at least ten years just wandering. Mr. Curry claims famed New Mexico writers Mary Austin and Tony Hillerman as major influences, but he has a distinctive voice of his own. You will want to hear more of his stories, but be patient: he has two more books nearly done, and is still working away.

León Ferrari and Mira Schendel are among the most significant Latin American artists of the 20th century. Active during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in the neighbouring countries of Argentina and Brazil, they found inspiration in the written word and in the eloquence of spoken language. Their striking visual production coincided with a period of significant focus on language by philosophers and artists. León Ferrari & Mira Schendel is published to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of these two artists in the United States, presenting new insights on the artists deconstruction of language through a visual repertoire and examining the connections and collisions between the visual arts, the written form, politics and religion.

(Book). Charlie Byrd, Herbie Mann, and others brought in bags full of discs from a trip to Brazil in 1961. Stan Getz listened to them and recorded "Desafinado," which stayed for 70 weeks on the Billboard charts. Since then, no one can deny bossa nova's global appeal and influence upon jazz and world music. While celebrating bossa nova's 50-year presence in the United States, we can learn more about the movement's champion, Jobim, through poet and novelist Helena Jobim's Antonio Carlos Jobim: An Illuminated Man . His personal, intellectual, and professional history comes alive. With a vast, intimate, and revealing set of photographs, and an engaging, elegant and unique prose, this is the story of a true 20th-century's genius. Helena Jobim does justice to her brother's poetic voice. The composer of "Waters of March" read, questioned, and re-created the world he lived in not only through mesmerizing melodies, but also through down-to-earth poetry. The biography also reveals Antonio Carlos Jobim's serious ecological concerns. To his 400 songs of inexplicable grace he has added his own epigraph in An Illuminated Man : "Every time a tree is cut down here on Earth, I believe it will grow again somewhere else, in another world. So, when I die, it is to this place that I want to go, where forests live in peace."

NATIONAL BESTSELLER “The Social Network, the much anticipated movie…adapted from Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires.” —The New York Times Best friends Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg had spent many lonely nights looking for a way to stand out among Harvard University’s elite, competitive, and accomplished student body. Then, in 2003, Zuckerberg hacked into Harvard’s computers, crashed the campus network, almost got himself expelled, and was inspired to create Facebook, the social networking site that has since revolutionized communication around the world. With Saverin’s funding their tiny start-up went from dorm room to Silicon Valley. But conflicting ideas about Facebook’s future transformed the friends into enemies. Soon, the undergraduate exuberance that marked their collaboration turned into out-and-out warfare as it fell prey to the adult world of venture capitalists, big money, and lawyers. From the Trade Paperback edition.
