Thoroughly researched, written from a nonpartisan perspective, and as lively as a novel, this is the definitive biography of the revered Cuban patriot and martyr whose revolutionary movement eventually ended the Spanish colonial domination of Cuba.

This study of the Guatemalan legal system during the regimes of two of Latin America’s most repressive dictators reveals the surprising extent to which Maya women used the courts to air their grievances and defend their human rights.

“The life, the history and the facts are all here in López’s volume. It is thorough, compelling and a generally lively account”

Written with exquisite sensitivity and wit, this memoir by one of Mexico’s foremost men of letters describes coming of age during the violence of the Mexican Revolution and “living dangerously” as an openly homosexual man in a brutally machista society. release date | 2014 51/2 x 81/2 inches, 216 pages, 1 b&w photo ISBN 978-0-292-70541-8 $35.00 | £24.00 | C$45.50

“Cypess argues convincingly that Garro’s feminist stance and her active resistance against an ingrained macho culture corresponded with her open warfare against her husband and her resistance to the cultural, political, and ideological machinery he both headed and represented. . . . delicious and insightful.”

“And if ‘translators translate context,’ as Edith Grossman asserts, then what we encounter when we read Pillar of Salt is a supreme translation not only of language but also of culture, politics, sexuality, and boyhood.” —BOOKSLUT

“A fascinating piece of history. . . . This volume’s publication now, over sixty years after it was initially written, serves as a bold testament of just how far we’ve come as a society, and serves as a much needed reminder that we’ve still got a ways to go.”

FILM AND MEDIA

Experimental Latin American Cinema

Drawing on diverse photographic, cinematic, and literary artifacts, this critical study reinterprets the 1968 massacre of student-populist protesters in Mexico City, examining both the effects of the violence and the subsequent statesponsored manipulation of cultural memory.

History and Aesthetics BY CYNTHIA TOMPKINS

This groundbreaking exploration of experimental Latin American film applies Deleuzian theories of cinema to examine multiple genres and works from the most important national cinematic traditions. r e le as e dat e | 2 0 1 3 6 x 9 inches, 306 pages, 74 b&w photos

BY SAMUEL STEINBERG

“Photopoetics at Tlatelolco will be the fundamental contribution of Latin American studies to scholarship around the global 1968, a field that encompasses a vast group of researchers and students in a wide array of disciplines. This is a revisionist book in the best sense of the word, a challenging, polemic, well-thought, and thoroughly researched cultural history of Mexico in the wake of Tlatelolco. It is truly a major work of scholarship.”
