Border Fictions offers the first comparative analysis of multiethnic and transnational cultural representations about the United States' borders with Mexico and Canada. Blending textual analysis with theories of globalization and empire, Claudia Sadowski-Smith forges a new model of inter-American studies. Border Fictions places into dialogue a variety of hemispheric perspectives from Chicana/o, Asian American, American Indian, Latin American, and Canadian studies. Each chapter examines fiction that ranges widely, from celebrated authors such as Carlos Fuentes, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Alberto Ríos to writers whose contributions to border literature have not yet been fully appreciated, including Karen Tei Yamashita, Thomas King, Janette Turner Hospital, and emerging Chicana/o writers of the U.S.-Mexico border. Proposing a diverse and geographically expansive view of border and inter-American studies, Border Fictions links the work of these and numerous other authors to civil rights movements, environmental justice activism, struggles for land and border-crossing rights, as well as to anti-imperialist forms of nationalism in the United States’ neighboring countries. The book forces us to take into account the ways in which shifts in the nature of global relations affect literary production, especially in its hemispheric manifestations.

Fascism Aviation And Mythical Modernity

Flying and the pilot were significant metaphors of fascism's mythical modernity. Fernando Esposito traces the changing meanings of these highly charged symbols from the 1909 air show in Brescia, to the sky above the trenches of the First World War to the violent ideological clashes of the interwar period. The book analyzes a multitude of speakers in the aviation discourse ranging from Aby Warburg and Gabriele D'Annunzio, over the Futurists and Ernst Jünger to the Fascists proper. Esposito shows how the flyer came to symbolize not only New Man and the new eternal time the Fascists were striving for but also the conflicts underlying modernity itself.

Guidebook to walking and trekking in Chile's Torres del Paine National Park and Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, areas of Patagonia. Eight different walks and treks are described, including the 10-11 day Torres del Paine Circuit, one of the world's great treks, as well as the shorter Half Circuit (4-5 days). The guide also includes other multi day treks and several day walks, as well as excursions from both Puerto Natales and El Calafate. The 140km Torres del Paine 'O' Circuit in the far southern Andes is a long-distance trek of staggering beauty, as it circuits the Paine massif. This route typically takes 10-11 days to complete and is suitable for competent trekkers. While Torres del Paine National Park offers a remote wilderness, walking is easily accessible with clear trails, good public transport and regular mountain huts and campsites. The guidebook helps walkers and trekkers venture into Patagonia with confidence, and includes advice on getting to and around the regions, languages, visa, currency, accommodation facilities in the National Parks as well as useful guidance on what to take and expect on the treks. Full background information on the geology, history, wildlife, flora and cultures of the regions are also explored, resulting in an excellent companion guide to walking and trekking in Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares.

Theology Creation And Environmental Ethics

Winner of the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise, 2009 This book argues that the Christian doctrine of creatio ex nihilo (creation out of nothing) sets up a support system for a "logic of domination" toward human and earth others. Conceptually inspired by the work of theologian Catherine Keller and feminist philosopher of the environment Val Plumwood, it follows a genealogical method in examining how the concept of creation out of nothing materializes in the world throughout different periods in the history of the Christian West.
