Queer Brown Voices: Personal Narratives of Lati...

In the last three decades of the 20th century, LGBT Latinas/os faced several forms of discrimination. The greater Latino community did not often accept sexual minorities, and the mainstream LGBT movement expected everyone, regardless of their ethnic and racial background, to adhere to a specific set of priorities so as to accommodate a “unified” agenda. To disrupt the cycle of sexism, racism, and homophobia that they experienced, LGBT Latinas/os organized themselves on local, state, and national levels, forming communities in which they could fight for equal rights while simultaneously staying true to both their ethnic and sexual identities. Yet histories of LGBT activism in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s often reduce the role that Latinas/os played, resulting in misinformation, or ignore their work entirely, erasing them from history.  Queer Brown Voices is the first book published to counter this trend, documenting the efforts of some of these LGBT Latina/o activists. Comprising essays and oral history interviews that present the experiences of 14 activists across the United States and in Puerto Rico, the book offers a new perspective on the history of LGBT mobilization and activism. The activists discuss subjects that shed light not only on the organizations they helped to create and operate but also on their broad-ranging experiences of being racialized and discriminated against, fighting for access to health care during the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and struggling for awareness. 1.

Justice and Space Matter in a Strong, Unified Latino Community provides a detailed analysis of colonias along the Mexico-United States border, examining the intersection of culture, education, language, literacy, race, religion, and social class in Latino immigrant communities. The researchers investigated Corazón , a colonia in South Texas, as a case study of these unincorporated border settlements, consisting of mostly Mexican heritage residents and lacking many basic living necessities. Highlighting over ten years of research findings, the authors consider structural inequalities alongside the unique strengths of Corazón . Their acute observations dispel myths about such high-poverty communities and demonstrate how residents overcome the odds through activism, faith, and ganas . In presenting a portrait of the Corazón colonia, the authors offer a deeper level of understanding of one Latino community to inspire the development of a more equitable, compassionate world. This book will be invaluable to students and scholars of all fields who work with culturally diverse people in poverty, and will be ideal for courses in ethnic studies, multicultural studies, ethnographic methods, and socio-cultural applications for education.

Healing and Developing Our Multiculturalism
48,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Description: This book is a theological/pastoral response to Vatican II's call to develop our cultures as outlined in section 2 of De Ecclesia in Mundo Huius Temporis: The Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World. It provides a historical perspective on the Church with brief outlines of the Church's relations to the Chinese, Jewish, Muslim, and Latino cultures. The author then reviews some of the defects in our present multiculturalism and suggests means for healing and developing our culture in the United States. Endorsements: ''With the American Catholic Church more multicultural than ever, there is an urgent need for deep insights into multiculturalism and practical advice on how to minister effectively in this multicultural Church. Rademacher's book fills this double need splendidly. Its twin approach to multiculturalism--healing and developing--turns it into an effective instrument for mutual enrichment and reconciliation. With each chapter accompanied by illustrative stories and ending with questions for discussion, the work is a perfect textbook for college-level courses, continuing education, and parish diocesan formation. Buy it and use it. Currently, there is no other work like this on the market.'' --Peter C. Phan, Ellacuría Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University ''Throughout the pages of Healing and Developing our Multiculturalism, we are witness to Rademacher's careful scholarship, and remarkable dedication to learning. One can only be impressed by his passion for social justice: to do what we can to repair our broken world and to create a climate of better understanding, caring, and respect for all humankind.'' --Rabbi Gerald M. Kane, Rabbi Emeritus, Temple Beth-El, Las Cruces, New Mexico ''Since 9-11, there [is] urgency to bring the Salvation message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all tongues, peoples, nations, and countries; not least [to] the multicultural communities in which we reside. Rademacher examines these issues. He [relates] the evolutionary growth of the Roman Catholic Church. Such, also, is today's multiculturalism of the Church, as there are greater than 1500 different practicing Christian religions In these times, when the harvest is ripe and the organized workers are few, we must put our differences aside and become that unified Body of Christ, that 'one new man.' This is a comprehensive and authoritative book on these issues.'' --Fred D. Hofeldt, Judeo-Christian Israel Alliance, Las Cruces, New Mexico ''From the signs in Spanish to the women in headscarves, a visit to any mall tells you that this is exactly the right book at the right time. Combining firsthand experience with a broad survey of scholarship, it's a must-read for pastors and people in the pew alike.'' --Ronald Modras, Professor of Theological Studies, St. Louis University About the Contributor(s): William J. Rademacher is a retired professor of Systematic Theology and theological consultant on Pastoral Ministry for the Catholic Diocese of Las Cruces, New Mexico. He is the author of Lay Ministry and several books on Parish Pastoral Councils.

The Metaphysics of World Order
58,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this book, Nicolas Laos studies the meaning of the terms ''world'' and ''order,'' the moral dimensions of each world order model, and wider issues of meaning and interpretation generated by humanity's attempt to live in a meaningful world and to find the logos of the beings and things in the world. The aim of this book is to propose a unified theory of world order (i.e., a theory that combines philosophy, theology, and political theory). In this context, the author provides a thought-provoking (re)interpretation of classical philosophy (placing particular emphasis on Platonism), an in-depth inquiry into medieval philosophy and spirituality (placing particular emphasis on the cultural differences between the Greek East and the Latino-Frankish West), and an intellectually challenging review and evaluation of modern Western philosophy (including Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Husserl, and Heidegger) and of Nietzsche's and the postmodernists' revolt against modernity. He then elucidates the philosophical foundations and ''pedigree'' of each of the three basic political theories of modernity (i.e., Liberalism, Communism, and Fascism), and he studies the basic theoretical debates in International Relations, Geopolitics, and Noopolitics. Finally, Laos proposes a new, ''fourth,'' political theory which he calls ''metaphysical republicanism.'' ''Nicolas Laos's The Metaphysics of World Order not only summarizes, evaluates, and extends a very powerful literature in philosophy, theology, and political theory, but also it is a creative and substantial contribution to political philosophy and world order studies. It is a masterful interdisciplinary research work and it is clearly and engagingly written from beginning to end.'' --Evanghelos Moutsopoulos, Research Center for Greek Philosophy, Academy of Athens, Athens, Greece ''Nicolas Laos is an outstanding scholar. His book, The Metaphysics of World Order, is a masterpiece. The author's vision is to combine philosophy, theology, and political theory in order to propose a unified theory of world order. Anyone interested in international and political studies must read the book!'' --John M. Nomikos, Research Institute for European and American Studies (RIEAS), Athens, Greece Nicolas Laos was born in Athens, Greece in 1974. He is Founder and Chairman of the Research Institute for Noopolitical and Geopolitical Studies (RINGS) and a Partner (expert on Geopolitics and World Security) of R-Techno private intelligence company.
