The framework for the articles collected in this volume is contemporary intellectual history, a discipline that has increasingly pushed the limits to give rise to a flourishing number of discourse modules and to broaden its own intellectual horizons. The authors draw upon different lines of thought, but they all converge, whether they consider those lines as subjects of study, or they adopt them as methodological approaches.

Brazilian scholar María Elisa Cevasco provides an account of Raymond William’s work in an attempt to find the tools that will lead to committed criticism of literature and culture. Therefore, her book is not a celebration of this great British intellectual, but an essay aimed at contributing to “construct a cognitive map” of our current situation.
Vidas beligerantes Dos mujeres argentinas, dos protestas y la búsqueda de reconocimiento Original title: Contentious Lives.Two Argentine Women, Two Protests, and the Quest for Recognition Javier Auyero Translated into Spanish by Claudia Gilman isbn 987-558-026-0 2004 | 304 p. | illus. | 360 g $ 27 | usd 7,21
Nana and Laura are two young women leading different lives in God-forsaken areas of Argentina, who do not belong to any political party, organization, or union. Javier Auyero connects them to focus on their roles in two uprisings that took place in Argentina in the 1990s (a twoday protest in the northwestern city of Santiago del Estero and a six-day road blockade in the southern oil towns of Cutralco and Plaza Huincul), while he also focuses on the roles of the protests in their lives. While Nana was an activist in the former, the latter turned a teacher like Laura into a spokesperson of the so-called picketeers. The author joins two major concerns in anthropology of practice and sociological study of protests: an examination of social phenomena from an “agentic” perspective and an analysis of social struggle that focuses on self-understanding among the contending actors.
