One of the late Carlos Fuentes's final projects, this compendium of his criticism traces the evolution of the Latin American novel from the discovery of America to the present day. Combining historical perspective with personal and often opinionated interpretation, Fuentes gives us a tour from Machado de Assis to Borges and beyond. A landmark analysis, as well as a scintillating and often wry commentary on a great author's peers and influences, this book is as much a contribution to Latin American literature as it is a chronicle of that literature's greatest achievements.

An entertainment and tech insider—YouTube’s chief business officer—delivers the first detailed account of the rise of YouTube, the creative minds who have capitalized on it to become pop culture stars, and how streaming video is revolutionizing the media world. In the past ten years, the internet video platform YouTube has changed media and entertainment as profoundly as the invention of film, radio, and television did, more than six decades earlier. Streampunks is a firsthand account of this upstart company, examining how it evolved and where it will take us next. Sharing behind-the-scenes stories of YouTube’s most influential stars—Streampunks like Tyler Oakley, Lilly Singh, and Casey Neistat—and the dealmakers brokering the future of entertainment like Scooter Braun and Shane Smith, Robert Kyncl uses his experiences at three of the most innovative media companies, HBO, Netflix, and YouTube, to tell the story of streaming video and this modern pop culture juggernaut. Collaborating with Google speechwriter Maany Peyvan, Kyncl explains how the new rules of entertainment are being written and how and why the media landscape is radically changing, while giving aspiring Streampunks some necessary advice to launch their own new media careers. Kyncl persuasively argues that, despite concerns about technology impoverishing artists or undermining artistic quality, the new media revolution is actually fueling a creative boom and leading to more compelling, diverse, and immersive content. Enlightening, surprising, and thoroughly entertaining, Streampunks is a revelatory ride through the new media rebellion that is reshaping our world.

People's identities are addressed and brought into being by interaction with others. Identity processes encompass biographical experiences, historical eras and cultural norms in which the self's autonomy varies according to the flux of power relationships with others. Identity Structure Analysis (ISA) draws upon psychological, sociological and social anthropological theory and evidence to formulate a system of concepts that help explain the notion of identity. They can be applied to the practical investigations of identity structure and identity development in a number of clinical, societal and cultural settings. This book includes topics on national and ethnic identification in multicultural contexts and gender identity relating to social context and the urban environment. Clinical applications that describe identity processes associated with psychological distress are also examined. These include anorexia nervosa and vicarious traumatisation of counsellors in the aftermath of atrocity. Analysing Identity is unique in its development of this integrative conceptualisation of self and identity, and its operationalisation in practice. This innovative book will appeal to academics and professionals in developmental, social, cross-cultural, clinical and educational psychology and psychotherapy. It will also be of interest to those involved with sociology, political science, gender studies, ethnic studies and social policy. Of particular note is the availability of new software, Ipseus, which facilitates ISA for use by practitioners. It enables them to enhance their professional skills by ascertaining their clients’ perspectives on self as located in the social world. This has been successfully used with pre-school three to five year-old children, and all other age-ranges through childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Ipseus is designed to be used in inter-cultural contexts and appeals to practitioners for their input for the generation of customized identity instruments (see www.identityexploration.com).

The Art of Being Black : The Creation of Black British Youth Identities

The Art of Being Black explores how young black Britons create their cultural identities. Claire Alexander rejects the common tendency to view black communities in terms of conflict, or as the focus of a problem; she offers a fresh exploration of the strengths and ambiguities of black youth representations as they are imagined and lived through, focusing in particular on community, `class', social life, and masculinity. Young black men have been typecast as hostile and culturally confused, alienated from their parents and from society; as `folk devils' (the stock images of the black mugger, the Rastafarian drug dealer, the rioter, the Yardie), creating problems for society in general. To get a truer view, Dr Alexander spent twelve months as `one of the boys' in a group of young black Londoners; the resulting highly personal, in-depth, and very readable study counters the usual image of ethnic identity as fixed and immutable. Drawing on contemporary debates about culture and ethnicity, this book offers the close observation and informed analysis needed to bring to life theories of black cultural identity.

Argentine filmmaking over the past two decades has enjoyed worldwide success. New Argentine Cinema explores this cinema from the mid-1990s to the present, from a film-analytical as well as a cultural studies perspective. It reveals the elements that have made for this success, in relation to the country's profound political, social and cultural crisis during the same period. Jens Andermann argues that cinema, more than any other art form, has proved a particularly effective medium for engaging with the way crisis has been lived and experienced, due to its own exposure to economic and technological change. Thus, the most recent wave of films also differs markedly from the Argentine cinema of the preceding decade, following the end of the dictatorship in 1983. Studying films including Lucrecia Martel's La cienaga (The Swamp), Lisandro Alonso's La libertad (Freedom), Albertina Carri's Los rubios (The Blondes), Martin Rejtman's Silvia Prieto and Pablo Trapero's Nacido y criado (Born and Bred), among others, he identifies a shift in aesthetic sensibilities between these directors and those of the previous generation, as well as a profound change in the way films are being made, and their relation to the audio-visual field at large. In combining close comparative analyses with a review of the changing models of production, editing, actorship and location, this book uncovers the ways in which Argentine films have managed to construct a complex, multilayered account of their own present, still troubled by the unresolved legacies of the past.--Book Jacket.

At the Mountains of Madness is a novella by H.P. Lovecraft, an American writer of "cosmic" horror, fantasy and sci-fi, particularly in the subgenre known as "weird fiction." Weird fiction incorporated the supernatural, mythical, and scientific into a unique form which predated "niche" genre fiction. This story, which was originally serialized in 1936, features the "de-mythology" of the Cthulhu mythos, which describe ancient extra-dimensional beings whose powers are vast and terrifying. It is told from the perspective of William Dyer, a geologist and professor at Miskatonic University. His manuscript reveals the horrible secrets of "The Old Ones" in an attempt to deter a highly-publicized expedition to Antarctica. Lovecraft's brilliance as a horror writer lies in his defiance of the old standards of ghosts, vampires, and werewolves. It's the peripheral description of his creatures, rather, whose powers are almost unimaginable, that leave the reader with a cosmic, spiritual and intellectual sense of doom.

Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa has said Fernando Iwasaki's work “delights and instructs all at once; it takes readers on a trip through a fantasy world while forcing them to face, without any fuss, a sinister reality, one dominated by fear.” In Spain's Diario Sur, Alfredo Taján highlights the book's strangeness, writing that it contains “chilling and wrenching stories of terror, where beasts, ghosts, vampires, incubi and succubi, crimes and enigmas cross over to the fresh breeze of everyday life without having to recur to remote geographies. Iwasaki describes his hells with a rare stylistic intuition that measures out the fear; it twists it, turns it into metaphor.” Renowned philologist, writer, and critic Miguel García Posada says of this book, “It's not a stretch to consider it one of the most notable revelations of recent Latin American literature.” Grave Goods contains ninety-eight pieces of flash fiction from one of Peru's best contemporary writers. While Fernando Iwasaki's stories—like all good horror stories—are intended to frighten or disconcert his readers, they are also often humorous in nature. Some re-create or re-envision urban legends, some come from dreams, and some are pure inventions of Iwasaki's remarkable mind. GRAVE GOODS - Translated into English for the first time!
