LINQUISITEUR-SORCIER: Le pouvoir des artéfacts (French Edition)
Commanding a vast historiography of slavery and emancipation, Aline Helg reveals as never before how significant numbers of enslaved Africans across the entire Western Hemisphere managed to free themselves hundreds of years before the formation of white-run abolitionist movements.
Her sweeping view of resistance and struggle covers more than three centuries, from early colonization to the American and Haitian revolutions, Spanish American independence, and abolition in the British Caribbean. Helg not only underscores the agency of those who managed to become ""free people of color"" before abolitionism took hold but also assesses in detail the specific strategies they created and utilized.
While recognizing the powerful forces supporting slavery, Helg articulates four primary liberation strategies: flight and marronage; manumission by legal document; military service, for men, in exchange for promised emancipation; and revolt-along with a willingness to exploit any weakness in the domination system. Helg looks at such actions at both individual and community levels and in the context of national and international political movements. Bringing together the broad currents of liberal abolitionism with an original analysis of forms of manumission and marronage, Slave No More deepens our understanding of how enslaved men, women, and even children contributed to the slow demise of slavery.
H Unknown. Slavery and the making of early American libraries : British literature, political thought, and the transatlantic book trade, . Moore, Sean D. First edition. Description Book — xxvi, pages : illustrations, portraits ; 24 cm Summary Introduction Buying Oroonoko in Salem : sentimentality, spectacle, slavery, and the Salem Social Library "Whatever is, is right" : the Redwood Library and the reception of Pope's poetry in colonial Rhode Island They were prodigals and enslavers : patriarchy and the reading of Robinson Crusoe at the New York Society Library Slaves as securitized assets : Chrysal, or, The Adventures of a Guinea, paper money, and the Charleston Library Society "See Benezet's account of Africa throughout" : the genres of Equiano's Interesting Narrative and the Library Company of Philadelphia Conclusion: Philanthropy recommended--slavery, the origins of the "charitable industrial complex," and the public sphere.
Slavery and the Making of Early American Libraries bridges the study of these trades by demonstrating how Americans' profits from slavery were reinvested in imported British books and providing evidence that the colonial book market was shaped, in part, by the demand of slave owners for metropolitan cultural capital. Drawing on recent scholarship that shows how participation in London cultural life was very expensive in the eighteenth century, as well as evidence that enslavers were therefore some of the few early Americans who could afford to import British cultural products, this book merges the fields of the history of the book, Atlantic studies, and the study of race, arguing that the empire-wide circulation of British books was underwritten by the labour of the African diaspora.
This volume is the first in early American and eighteenth-century British studies to fuse our growing understanding of the material culture of the transatlantic text with our awareness of slavery as an economic and philanthropic basis for the production and consumption of knowledge. In studying the American dissemination of works of British literature and political thought, the book claims that Americans were seeking out the forms of citizenship, constitutional traditions, and rights that were the signature of that British identity.
Even though they were purchasing the sovereignty of Anglo-Americans at the expense of African-Americans through these books, however, some colonials were also making the case for the abolition of slavery"-- Dust jacket.

R67 Unavailable In process Request. Whiggish international law : Elihu Root, the Monroe doctrine, and international law in the Americas . International law's turn to history in the Americas receives invigorated refreshment with Christopher Rossi's adaptation of the insightful and inter-disciplinary teachings of the English School and Cambridge contextualists to problems of hemispheric methodology and historiography.
Rossi sheds new light on abridgments of history and the propensity to construct and legitimize whiggish understandings of international law based on simplified tropes of liberal and postcolonial treatments of the Monroe Doctrine. Central to his story is the retelling of the Monroe Doctrine by its supreme early twentieth century interlocutor, Elihu Root and other like-minded internationalists.
Rossi's revival of whiggish international law cautions against the contemporary tendency to re-read history with both eyes cast on the ideological present as a justification for misperceived historical sequencing.

L39 Unknown. Beardmore : the Viking hoax that rewrote history . Hunter, Doug, author. Summary In , long before the discovery of the Viking settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows, the Royal Ontario Museum made a sensational acquisition: the contents of a Viking grave that prospector Eddy Dodd said he had found on his mining claim east of Lake Nipigon. The relics remained on display for two decades, challenging understandings of when and where Europeans first reached the Americas.
In the discovery was exposed as an unquestionable hoax, tarnishing the reputation of the museum director, Charles Trick Currelly, who had acquired the relics and insisted on their authenticity. Drawing on an array of archival sources, Douglas Hunter reconstructs the notorious hoax and its many players. Beardmore unfolds like a detective story as the author sifts through the voluminous evidence and follows the efforts of two unlikely debunkers, high-school teacher Teddy Elliott and government geologist T.
Tanton, who find themselves up against Currelly and his scholarly allies. Along the way, the controversy draws in a who's who of international figures in archaeology, Scandinavian studies, and the museum world, including anthropologist Edmund Carpenter, whose mids crusade against the find's authenticity finally convinced scholars and curators that the grave was a fraud. Shedding light on museum practices and the state of the historical and archaeological professions in the mid-twentieth century, Beardmore offers an unparalleled view inside a major museum scandal to show how power can be exercised across professional networks and hamper efforts to arrive at the truth.
The Black social economy in the Americas : exploring diverse community-based markets . New York, NY, U. Summary 1. With the Western Hemisphere's ignoble history of enslavement and violence towards African peoples, and the strong anti-black racism that still pervades society, the African diaspora in the Americas has turned to alternative practices of socio-economic organization. Conscientious and collective organizing is thus a means of creating meaningful livelihoods. In this volume, fourteen scholars explore the concept of the "Black social economy, " bringing together innovative research on the lived experience of Afro-descendants in business and society in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, and the United States.
The case studies in this book feature horrific legacies of enslavement, colonization, and racism, and they recount the myriad ways that persons of African heritage have built humane alternatives to the dominant market economy that excludes them. Together, they shed necessary light on the ways in which the Black race has been overlooked in the social economy literature.

Ceramics of ancient America : multidisciplinary approaches . Carrasco and Robert F. This is the first volume to bring together archaeology, anthropology, and art history in the analysis of pre-Columbian pottery. While previous research on ceramic artifacts has been divided by these three disciplines, this volume shows how integrating these approaches provides new understandings of many different aspects of Ancient American societies.
Contributors from a variety of backgrounds in these fields explore what ceramics can reveal about ancient social dynamics, trade, ritual, politics, innovation, iconography, and regional styles. Essays identify supernatural and humanistic beliefs through formal analysis of Lower Mississippi Valley ""Great Serpent"" effigy vessels and Ecuadorian depictions of the human figure.
They discuss the cultural identity conveyed by imagery such as Andean head motifs, and they analyze symmetry in designs from locations including the American Southwest. Chapters also take diachronic approaches? This volume provides a much-needed multidisciplinary synthesis of current scholarship on Ancient American ceramics. It is a model of how different research perspectives can together illuminate the relationship between these material artifacts and their broader human culture. P8 C47 Unknown.

Galemba, Rebecca B.

The chapter examines the contested and unfinished process by which the borderlands and Mexican and Guatemalan nations took shape to contextualize how residents became marginalized from, yet also integrated into, two nation-states.

It also challenges the idea that the border crossing is hidden or clandestine, pointing to how disruptions in state control over borders may be critical to the maintenance of state sovereignty at the margins. Residents like Fani, Rosa, Daniela, and Ramon achieved dual nationality through extralegal means by certifying they were born in both countries. In a context where the legal processes to acquire nationality are ambiguous and illegible, residents circumvent the law while copying its semblances and logics.
Documents, both real and fake, become unhinged from what they claim to represent: national belonging. Documents take on a life of their own as residents value them to stake claims across nations. Yet state officials and residents alike judge claims to belonging based on ethnicity, class, language, and politics, often irrespective of the actual documents.
As residents use extralegal practices to bend the border to their advantage, they undermine state attempts to manage border populations as they simultaneously bring the state into being at the margins. Corn, the basic subsistence crop in the region, as well as the most commonly smuggled good through this border, provides a window into understanding the local ethics that underpin the local legitimacy accorded to contraband. Residents reinterpreted corn smuggling as "free trade" in a context where official free trade provisions excluded them and decimated their livelihoods. To smuggle Mexican corn to Guatemala, border residents capitalized on a wider climate of political and economic crisis in the s to prevent state agents from monitoring the route.
However, smuggling does little to remedy the plight of small farmers or address dispossession in the countryside as it may reinforce inequality and relations of political patronage. In the late s, border residents capitalized on a period of political and economic crisis and social movements to expel state officials from the route. They established their own control by erecting tollbooths, called cadenas, and levying taxes on smugglers. The cadenas materialize local control of the border through the chains that the communities use to demarcate their territory and regulate entry.
If smugglers or officials are uncooperative, the communities can raise the chains to block entry. However, rather than representing an autonomous border crossing, the chapter demonstrates how border vacillates between local control and official tolerance, reflecting wider tensions among security, trade, poverty, and political in stability. The nearby official border crossing has the appearance of a modern official post but is not technically authorized to process cross-border commerce.
At the same time, the wider region has grown from regional and cross-border commerce, much of which proceeds through unmonitored routes. Through the lens of "phantom commerce, " or clandestine commerce, which is technically invisible but nonetheless produces tangible effects, the chapter demonstrates the interdependences, rather than necessary antagonisms, among illicit flows, security, and formal trade.
It details how smuggling is embedded in historical, community, kinship, and social relationships. Residents see the smuggling of basic goods as an ethical form of earning a living in the context of the historical importance of border trade, deteriorating economic opportunities, and exclusionary trade policies.
As intermediary smugglers, truckers, and cargo loaders, residents enable "phantom commerce" to distribute low-risk rewards to state agents, larger formal businesses, and other illicit actors. Even when border residents might benefit, the chapter shows how they also bear the risks. The conflict revealed the balance between an insistence on community benefits and the realities of profit and competition in a limited economy. As competing groups of border residents clashed over control of a lucrative gasoline smuggling trade, they unwittingly attracted the attention of state authorities, other regional actors, and the local media, culminating in a military raid in Yet the trade resumed shortly thereafter, albeit in a less overtly visible fashion.
This conflict illustrated evolving dynamics of governance at the border, which are increasingly complex as security becomes increasingly militarized and drug cartels, gangs, and larger-scale illicit networks gain regional influence. Conclusion: The Illicit Trio: Drugs, Arms, and Migrants chapter abstract The Conclusion brings the implications of the unsettled interdependences among the security, trade, and illegality up to the present to explore how the securitization of migration and drugs have combined to make everyday people less secure while generating increased flows across borders.
As Mexico cracks down on undocumented migration, corruption and violence have increased while migration continues. The case of migration is instructive for what a heavy-handed approach to extralegal activities without addressing underlying causes may portend. The chapter argues that it is important to examine why people engage in extralegal activities and how and under what conditions these activities become illegalized. Otherwise, aggressive approaches to crime are not only likely to fail but also may further distrust in the state and its institutions and foster more insecurity and inequality.
Introduction: A Paradise for Contraband? As Mexico and Guatemala enter security and trade collaborations with the United States, why does more smuggling also appear to be occurring? The chapter introduces the concept of securitized neoliberalism, to explain how the informal, illegal, and formal economy intertwine and how and why certain economic activities are privileged as others are increasingly criminalized. In the contexts of neoliberal reforms that dismantled agricultural livelihoods, borderland peasants intensified their reliance on smuggling goods across the border.
To border residents, this constitutes legitimate business. This chapter sets the stage for a wider examination of how the informal and illegal economy exists in a complex symbiosis, rather than necessary tension, with state actors and the formal economy. Contraband Corridor seeks to understand the border from the perspective of its long-term inhabitants, including petty smugglers of corn, clothing, and coffee.
Challenging assumptions regarding security, trade, and illegality, Rebecca Berke Galemba details how these residents engage in and justify extralegal practices in the context of heightened border security, restricted economic opportunities, and exclusionary trade policies. Rather than assuming that extralegal activities necessarily threaten the state and formal economy, Galemba's ethnography illustrates the complex ways that the formal, informal, legal, and illegal economies intertwine. Smuggling basic commodities across the border provides a means for borderland peasants to make a living while neoliberal economic policies decimate agricultural livelihoods.
Yet smuggling also exacerbates prevailing inequalities, obstructs the possibility of more substantive political and economic change, and provides low-risk economic benefits to businesses, state agents, and other illicit actors, often at the expense of border residents. Galemba argues that securitized neoliberalism values certain economic activities and actors while excluding and criminalizing others, even when the informal and illicit economy is increasingly one of the poor's only remaining options. Contraband Corridor contends that security, neoliberalism, and illegality are interdependent in complex ways, yet how they unfold depends on negotiations between diverse border actors.

Summary Introduction. These thoughtful pieces significantly contribute to a growing historiography on deportation within immigration studies-a field that usually focuses on arriving immigrants and their adaptation.
All contributors have expanded their analysis to include transnational and global histories, while recognizing that immigration policy is firmly developed within the structure of the nation-state.

Thus, the authors do not abandon national peculiarity regarding immigration policy, but as Emily Pope-Obeda observes, "from its very inception, immigration restriction was developed with one eye looking outward. Rather than solely focusing on immigration policy in the abstract, the authors remain cognizant of the very real effects domestic immigration policies have on deportees and push readers to think about how the mobility and lives of individuals come to be controlled by the state, as well as the ways in which immigrants and their allies have resisted and challenged deportation.
From the development of the concept of an "anchor baby" to continued policing of those who are foreign-born, Deportation in the Americas is an essential resource for understanding this critical and timely topic.

E34 Unknown. Emergent worlds : alternative states in nineteenth-century American culture . Sugden, Edward Edward Alexander , author. Summary Introduction: interstitial states in the oceanic nineteenth century Transition states in the chaotic Pacific, Suspended states in the long Caribbean, Threshold states in the immigrant Atlantic, Coda: Ishmael in the water. Reimagines the American 19th century through a sweeping interdisciplinary engagement with oceans, genres, and time Emergent Worlds re-locates nineteenth-century America from the land to the oceans and seas that surrounded it.
Edward Sugden argues that these ocean spaces existed in a unique historical fold between the transformations that inaugurated the modern era-colonialism to nationalism, mercantilism to capitalism, slavery to freedom, and deferent subject to free citizen. As travellers, workers, and writers journeyed across the Pacific, Atlantic, and Caribbean Sea, they had to adapt their political expectations to the interstitial social realities that they saw before them while also feeling their very consciousness, particularly their perception of time, mutate.
These four domains-oceanic geography, historical folds, emergent politics, and dissonant times-in turn, provided the conditions for the development of three previously unnamed genres of the s: the Pacific elegy, the black counterfactual, and the immigrant gothic. In telling the history of these emergent worlds and their importance to the development of the literary cultures of the US Americas, Sugden proposes narratives that alter some of the most enduring myths of the field, including the westward spread of US imperialism, the redemptionist trajectory of black historiography, and the notion that the US Americas constituted a new world.
Introducing a new generic vocabulary for describing the literature of the s and crossing over oceans and languages, Emergent Worlds invokes an alternative nineteenth-century America that provides nothing less than a new way to read the era.

British West Indians across the divides of race and class understood that, far from signaling an invitation to nationalist independence, this liberal economic discourse inaugurated a policy of imperial "neglect"-a way of ignoring the ties that obligated Britain to sustain the worlds of the empire's distant fellow subjects.
In Empire of Neglect Christopher Taylor examines this neglect's cultural and literary ramifications, tracing how nineteenth-century British West Indians reoriented their affective, cultural, and political worlds toward the Americas as a response to the liberalization of the British Empire.

Encounters between Jesuits and Protestants in Asia and the Americas . Leiden ; Boston : Brill,  Description Book — ix, pages : illustrations some color ; 24 cm. In Asia, Protestants encountered a mixed Jesuit legacy: in South Asia, they benefited from pioneering Jesuit ethnographers while contesting their conversions; in Japan, all Christian missionaries who returned after faced the equation of Japanese nationalism with anti-Jesuit persecution; and in China, Protestants scrambled to catch up to the cultural legacy bequeathed by the earlier Jesuit mission.
In the Americas, Protestants presented Jesuits as enemies of liberal modernity, supporters of medieval absolutism yet master manipulators of modern self-fashioning and the printing press. The evidence suggests a far more complicated relationship of both Protestants and Jesuits as co-creators of the bright and dark sides of modernity, including the public sphere, public education, plantation slavery, and colonialism.

Albuquerque : University of New Mexico Press, Description Book — xix, pages : illustrations, maps ; 24 cm Summary When Pueblo Indians say, ""The first white man our people saw was a black man, "" they are referring to Esteban, who came to New Mexico in After centuries of negative portrayals, this book highlights Esteban's importance in America's early history.
Books about the history of the American West have ignored Esteban or belittled his importance, often using his slave nickname, Estebanico. What little we know about Esteban comes from Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca and other Spanish chroniclers, whose condescension toward the African slave has carried over into most history books. In this work Herrick dispels the myths and outright lies about Esteban. His biography emphasizes Esteban rather than the Spaniards whose exploits are often exaggerated and jingoistic in the sixteenth-century chronicles.
He gives Esteban full credit for his courage and his skill as a linguist and cultural intermediary who was trusted and respected by Indians from many tribes across the continent. E8 H47 Unknown.

Just as "Monte Cristo" proved to be an elusive reality for Dumas, it proved equally elusive to those struggling to overcome slavery and its legacies in the French Atlantic world also searching for their own figurative "Monte Cristo.
Such efforts were influenced by earlier African-American struggles, particularly in the decades immediately after the Civil War, to create a place for their inclusion in wider American society; their efforts also used Dumas, whom they reconfigured as an American black hero.

Yet, we still have much to learn about the process through which ministers are selected and the reasons why they are replaced in presidential systems. This book offers the most comprehensive, cross-national analysis of portfolio allocation in the Americas to date. In doing so, it contributes to the development of theories about portfolio allocation in presidential systems. Looking specifically at how presidents use portfolio allocation as part of their wider political strategy, it examines eight country case studies, within a carefully developed analytical framework and cross-national comparative analysis from a common dataset.
The book includes cases studies of portfolio allocation in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the United States, Peru and Uruguay, and covers the period between the transition to democracy in each country up until This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of political elites, executive politics, Latin American politics and more broadly comparative politics.

Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, Description Book — pages : illustrations some color , maps some color ; 30 cm Summary Throughout its history, America has been defined through maps.
Whether made for military strategy or urban reform, to encourage settlement or to investigate disease, maps invest information with meaning by translating it into visual form. They capture what people knew, what they thought they knew, what they hoped for, and what they feared. As such they offer unrivaled windows onto the past. In this book Susan Schulten uses maps to explore five centuries of American history, from the voyages of European discovery to the digital age.
With stunning visual clarity, A History of America in Maps showcases the power of cartography to illuminate and complicate our understanding of the past. Gathered primarily from the British Library's incomparable archives and compiled into nine chronological chapters, these one hundred full-color maps range from the iconic to the unfamiliar. Each is discussed in terms of its specific features as well as its larger historical significance in a way that conveys a fresh perspective on the past.
Some of these maps were made by established cartographers, while others were made by unknown individuals such as Cherokee tribal leaders, soldiers on the front, and the first generation of girls to be formally educated. Some were tools of statecraft and diplomacy, and others were instruments of social reform or even advertising and entertainment. But when considered together, they demonstrate the many ways that maps both reflect and influence historical change. Audacious in scope and charming in execution, this collection of one hundred full-color maps offers an imaginative and visually engaging tour of American history that will show readers a new way of navigating their own worlds.

In its interpretation of the Convention, the IACtHR is guided by the important notion that human rights instruments should be interpreted in light of its object and purpose, in accordance with the State members of the Organization of the American States. The Court's jurisprudence ensures that victims of human rights violations are awarded not only monetary compensation in cases, but also a full array of reparations designed to restore their dignity and reaffirm the value of the rule of law.
Accordingly, reparation also includes moral compensation, guarantees of non-repetition, and truth as a measure of satisfaction. The impact of the Inter-American jurisprudence in this matter has gone beyond the regional hemispheric systems. More specifically, the book explores the notions of "fair remedy, " "injured party, " and the possibility of achieving "restitutio in integrum" for human rights violations through an analysis of decisions issued by the Inter-American.
The book urges its reader to consider not only the current status of the law, but also the role played by victims, lawyers, Commissioners, and Judges in its jurisprudential development. As a living instrument, the value of the American Convention depends in great part on their actions and decisions. This book, by presenting the role of the different actors through concrete cases that shaped the system, encourages everyone to think how the System should continue to satisfy the aspirations of justice in cases of human rights violations.

Labor justice across the Americas . Summary Opinions of specialized labor courts differ, but labor justice undoubtedly represented a decisive moment in worker 's history.
When and how did these courts take shape? Why did their originators consider them necessary? Leon Fink and Juan Manuel Palacio present essays that address these essential questions. Ranging from Canada and the United States to Chile and Argentina, the authors search for common factors in the appearance of labor courts while recognizing the specific character of the creative process in each nation.
Their transnational and comparative approach advances a global perspective on the various mechanisms for regulating industrial relations and resolving labor conflicts. The result is the first country-by-country study of its kind, one that addresses a defining shift in law in the first half of the twentieth century.

Madrid : Iberoamericana ; Frankfurt am Main : Vervuert, Making cities global : the transnational turn in urban history . In recent decades, hundreds of millions of people across the world have moved from rural areas to metropolitan regions, some of them crossing national borders on the way. While urbanization and globalization are proceeding with an intensity that seems unprecedented, these are only the most recent iterations of long-term transformations-cities have for centuries served as vital points of contact between different peoples, economies, and cultures.
Making Cities Global explores the intertwined development of urbanization and globalization using a historical approach that demonstrates the many forms transnationalism has taken, each shaped by the circumstances of a particular time and place. It also emphasizes that globalization has not been persistent or automatic-many people have been as likely to resist or reject outside connections as to establish or embrace them.
The essays in the collection revolve around three foundational themes. Second, contributors ground their studies of globalization in the built environments and everyday interactions of the city, because even world-spanning practices must be understood as people experience them in their neighborhoods, workplaces, stores, and streets.
Last is a fundamental concern with the role powerful empires and nation-states play in the emergence of globalizing and urbanizing processes. Making Cities Global argues that combining urban history with a transnational approach leads to a richer understanding of our increasingly interconnected world.

Sullivan, Edward J. London : Laurence King Publishing, Description Book — pages : illustrations chiefly color ; 25 cm. Summary This book presents an audacious account of the ways in which the arts in the Americas were modernized during the first half of the 20th century. Rather than viewing modernization as a steady progression from one "ism" to another, Edward Sullivan adopts a comparative approach, drawing his examples from North America, the Caribbean, Central, and South America.
By considering the Americas in this hemispheric sense he is able to tease out many stories of art and focus on the ways in which artists from different regions not only adapted and experimented with visual expression, but also absorbed trans-national as well as international influences. He shows how this rich diversity is most evident in the various forms of abstract art that emerged throughout the Americas and which in turn had an impact on art throughout the world.

Later, the same incident may have been re-told by the clergy; this time the narration needed to entertain the audience yet also to contain a didactic message of divine grace.
If the case was eventually scrutinized at the papal Curia, the narration and deposition had to fulfil the requirements of both theology and canon law in order to be successful. Miracle narrations had many functions, and they intersected various levels of medieval society and culture; this affected the structure of a collection and individual narration as well as the chosen rhetoric. This book offers a comprehensive methodological analysis of the structure and functions of medieval miracle collections and canonization processes as well as working-tools for reading these sources.
By analysing typologies of miracles, stages of composition, as well as rhetorical elements of narrations and depositions, the entertaining, didactic, and judicial aspects of miracle narrations are elucidated while the communal and individual elements are also scrutinized.
