  • The Making of Modern Colombia - A Nation in Spite of Itself - cover

    The Making of Modern Colombia -...

    Colombia's status as the fourth largest nation in Latin America and third most populous—as well as its largest exporter of such disparate commodities as emeralds, books, processed cocaine, and cut flowers—makes this, the first history of Colombia written in English, a much-needed book. It tells the remarkable story of a country that has consistently defied modern Latin American stereotypes—a country where military dictators are virtually unknown, where the political left is congenitally weak, and where urbanization and industrialization have spawned no lasting populist movement.There is more to Colombia than the drug trafficking and violence that have recently gripped the world's attention. In the face of both cocaine wars and guerrilla conflict, the country has maintained steady economic growth as well as a relatively open and democratic government based on a two-party system. It has also produced an impressive body of art and literature.David Bushnell traces the process of state-building in Colombia from the struggle for independence, territorial consolidation, and reform in the nineteenth century to economic development and social and political democratization in the twentieth. He also sheds light on the modern history of Latin America as a whole.

    Taiko Boom - Japanese Drumming...

    With its thunderous sounds and dazzling choreography, Japanese taiko drumming has captivated audiences in Japan and across the world, making it one of the most successful performing arts to emerge from Japan in the past century. Based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted among taiko groups in Japan, Taiko Boom explores the origins of taiko in the early postwar period and its popularization over the following decades of rapid economic growth in Japan’s cities and countryside. Building on the insights of globalization studies, the book argues that taiko developed within and has come to express new forms of communal association in a Japan increasingly engaged with global cultural flows. While its popularity has created new opportunities for Japanese to participate in community life, this study also reveals how the discourses and practices of taiko drummers dramatize tensions inherent in Japanese conceptions of race, the body, gender, authenticity, and locality.

    Today humans stand tall as the dominant species on planet Earth, but it wasn't always this way. It took us millions of years to climb from the bottom of the food chain, and you might be surprised at what we've learned-and lost-along the way.
     
     
     
    Humans don't have the strength of bears, or the speed of cheetahs, of the flight of eagles. We're born weak and helpless in a world full of hungry predators, ready to devour us at the first chance. And yet today, humans dominate the planet, covering the earth with our society and unique culture. A lot has changed since our foraging days, and in Sapiens, you'll walk through history with the earliest humans, watching them ascend from foraging for bugs and hiding from beasts to creating powerful empires and soaring into the stars.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
    ·      Why humanity's future may be in cyborg engineering
     
    ·      How the discovery of farming completely altered human lifestyles-possibly for the worse
     
    ·      What makes human communication so much better than every other animal's.
