3 editions published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... ensayo sobre la cuestión del orden en la Buenos Aires de las décadas de 1920 y 1930. En plena expansión demográfica y urbana, modernizándose rápidamente, la ciudad exhibe los frutos de la movilidad social, pero también sus límites y puntas disonantes. Lila Caimari reconstruye los extraordinarios cambios de la época a partir de dos puntos de observación. Por un lado, la crónica del crimen, jalonada por persecuciones, tiroteos y fugas vertiginosas, a la manera de la historieta de aventuras. Por el otro, los archivos de la policía porteña, que permiten observarlas mutaciones del delito y también las de la ciudad. Al incursionar en el universo de la Policía de la Capital (futura Policía Federal), este ensayo observa a los agentes que dicen conocer como nadie lo que ocurre en las calles, que documentan lo grande y lo nimio, que informan sobre la circulación entre la ciudad y su entorno. Historia del delito e historia desde el delito, el libro sigue la ruta de los pistoleros "modernos", aquellos que munidos de armas y autos se esfumaban de la escena del crimen "como en el cinematógrafo". Y se interesa también en el punto de vista del "vigilante de la esquina", aquel que permite inferir cómo se organiza un orden callejero, cómo operan las tecnologías estatales de percepción del desorden, cuán porosas son las fronteras entre lo legal y lo ilegal."--Contratapa
While the city sleeps : a history of pistoleros, policemen, and the crime beat in Buenos Aires before Peron by Lila M Caimari( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the City Sleeps is an extraordinary work of scholarship from one of Argentina's leading historians of modern Buenos Aires society and culture. In the late nineteenth century, the city saw a massive population boom and large-scale urban development. With these changes came rampant crime, a chaotic environment in the streets, and intense class conflict. In response, the state expanded institutions that were intended to bring about social order and control. Lila Caimari mines both police records and true crime reporting to bring to life the underworld pistoleros, the policemen who fought th
Keen's Latin American Civilization : primary source reader( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tenth edition of Keen's Latin American Civilization inaugurates a new era in the history of this classic anthology by dividing it into two volumes. This first volume retains most of the colonial period sources from the ninth edition but with some significant additions, including new sets of images representing Brazilian cannibals and "casta paintings" of mixed race families, an alternative conquest narrative, and five new readings on imperial governance, gender, and sexuality -including selections from the autobiography of a Spanish nun who took on a male persona to fight as a soldier in the American colonies ... Concise introductions for chapters and excerpts provide essential context for understanding the primary sources."--Descripción del editor

In articulo mortis : el retrato fotográfico de difuntos y los inicios de la prensa ilustrada en la Argentina, 1898-1913 by Diego Fernando Guerra( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of this thesis is the postmortem photographic portrait in Buenos Aires and, especially, its development in the context of the insertion of the photography in the early twentieth century massmedia. In this sense, the main objective of this work is to contribute to the knowledge of the relationship between death and visual representation in the beginning of the mass culture. The analysis of a heterogeneous corpus - the photographs, paintings, photo-engravings, cartoons, journalistic images and advertisings - therefore tries to study some fundamental problems of the presence of the image and the portrait in modern funerary rites and mourning practices. Its intention is also to highlight the role of mortuary practices in the Argentine modernization process and its links with the development of visual mass culture

Eglise et pouvoir politique dans une democratie de masse. la place du catholicisme dans l'experience peroniste, argentine, 1943-1955 by Lila M Caimari( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

THE ADVENT OF PERONISM IN 1945 WAS INITIALLY ATTRACTIVE TO CATHOLICS INSOFAR AS PERON PRESENTED HIMSELF AS A FOLLOWER OF THE SOCIAL DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH. HOWEVER, BEHIND ITS PIOUS FACADE, THE PERONIST MOVEMENT CONTAINED MANY ELEMENTS WHICH WERE, AT LEAST POTENTIALLY, IN CONFLICT WITH THE CHURCH. THE THREE MOST OBVIOUS POINTS OF CONFLICT WERE : THE PRESENCE OF A LONG-HELD ANTI-CLERICALISM AMONG LARGE NUMBERS OF PERONISTS, COMPETITION BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND THE STATE FOR CONTROL OF CERTAIN SECTORS OF ARGENTINE SOCIETY, AND THE AMBIGUOUS POSITION OF EVA PERON VIS-A-VIS THE CHURCH. THESE ELEMENTS MANIFESTED THEMSELVES IN A GRADUAL MODIFICATION OF THE STATE'S POLICY TOWARD THE CHURCH, AND IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PARTICULARLY "PERONIST" RELIGIOUS DISCOURSE WHICH WAS SUITED TO THE GENERAL STYLE OF THE GOVERNMENT. THIS PROCESS OF DISSOCIATION BETWEEN THE PERONIST AND CATHOLIC UNIVERSES IS A MANIFESTATION OF THE BROADER AND MORE PROFOUND DIVORCE BETWEEN PERONIST AND ANTI-PERONIST FORCES IN ARGENTINA. THE CHURCH-STATE CONFLICT OF 1954-1955 MAY BE SEEN AS THE INCARNATION OF A DEEPER CONFLICT : THAT WHICH FOUND THE TWO ARGENTINAS - ONE PERONIST, THE OTHER ANTI-PERONIST - INCAPABLE OF RECONCILIATION
