Book excerpt: Penned during the transition of power from Fidel Castro to Raúl Castro, Our Place in the Sun explores the Canadian-Cuban relationship from 1959 to the present day.

Many of this volume's contributors draw upon newly declassified sources and original interviews, providing unique insight into the historical, economic, and political realities affecting the Canada-Cuba connection. Featuring twelve original essays by a variety of scholars as well as a short memoir by former Canadian Ambassador to Cuba, Mark Entwistle, this important interdisciplinary collection calls into question past understandings of the Canadian-Cuban relationship.

Download or read book Sport in Latin America written by Gonzalo Bravo and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-01-29 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The forthcoming Olympics in Rio in 2016, and the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 2014, highlight the profound importance of sport in Latin America. This book is the first to offer a broad survey of the way that sport is managed, governed and organized across the Latin American region, drawing on cutting-edge contemporary scholarship in management, policy, sociology and history. The book explores key themes in Latin American sport, including the role of public institutions; the relationship between sport policy and political regimes; the structure and significance of national governing bodies and professional leagues; the impact of sporting mega-events (including the Olympics and World Cup), and the management and governance of football, the dominant sport in the region. Including contributions from Latin American scholars and practitioners, the book draws on important Spanish and Portuguese sources that are unknown to most English-speaking researchers, and therefore provides an unprecedented and authoritative insight into sport policy and management in the region. Including cases from sport in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Peru and examples from Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador, this book is essential reading for all scholars, practitioners and policy-makers with an interest in Latin American sport, comparative sport policy, sport management, or Latin American history, culture and society.

Download or read book Heretic's Heart written by Margot Adler and published by Beacon Press. This book was released on 2013-05-28 with total page 328 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Starting in 1964, writes Margot Adler in this dazzling memoir, “I found myself mysteriously at the center of extraordinary events.” Now a correspondent for National Public Radio, Adler was a young woman determined to be taken seriously and to be an agent of change—on her own terms, free from dogma and authoritarian constraints. From campus activism at the University of California at Berkeley to civil rights work in Mississippi, from antiwar protests to observing the socialist revolution in Cuba, she found those chances in the 1960s. Heretic’s Heart illuminates the events, ideas, passions, and ecstatic commitments of the decade like no other memoir. At the book’s center is the powerful—and unique—correspondence between Adler, then an antiwar activist at Berkeley, and a young American soldier fighting in Vietnam. The correspondence begins when Adler reads a letter the infantryman has written to a Berkeley newspaper. “I’ve heard rumors that there are people back in the world who don’t believe this war should be. I’m not positive of this though, ’cause it seems to me that if enough of them told the right people in the right way, then something might be done about it. . . . You see, while you’re discussing it amongst each other, being beat, getting in bed with dark-haired artists . . . some people here are dying for lighting a cigarette at night.” Heretic’s Heart also explores Adler’s attempt to come to terms with her singular legacy as the only grandchild of Alfred Adler, collaborator of Freud and founder of Individual Psychology, and as the daughter of a forceful beauty who bequeaths her spunk and adventurousness to her daughter, but whose overpowering personality forces Adler to strike out on her own. Adler’s memoir marks an initiatory journey from spirit through politics and revolution back to spirit again. Revealing, funny, joyful, and often wise, Heretic’s Heart will restore the spirit of the 1960s: the passion, the confusion, the sense of social transformation and limitless possibility, and the ecstatic feeling that the world is on the cusp of change.
Download or read book The Tombstone Tourist in Cuba written by Terisa E. Gigiel and published by FriesenPress. This book was released on 2022-05-13 with total page 189 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Tombstone Tourist In Cuba immerses you in a world that is rich in history, culture, and religion. In this book of photography, you will take a detour from the beaten path of beach resorts and discover this storied Caribbean nation via its cemeteries and monuments. Here you will learn about how the country’s population celebrates, pays tribute to, and mourns its people. This book explores the symbolism and historical significance of different tombs, crypts, and monuments. Amid the marble pathways, pink bougainvillea, and intricately carved monuments are powerful reminders of lives lived. Some tombs tell the story of a person who has risen to mythical levels, while others demonstrate the honour afforded people who died under tragic circumstances. A gravesite can tell you so much about people: who they were, what they represented, how they were loved . . . But this book is not just a guided tour of Cuba’s many and varied cemeteries. It is a photographic journey into the heart of a nation. Through these stories and images, you will uncover a side to the people and the country that you may never have otherwise come to learn. And who knows? Perhaps you’ll take a detour of your own, the next time you travel, and explore a cemetery for yourself. Why not start with Cuba?
