La selva culta : simbolismo y praxis en la ecología de los Achuar by Philippe Descola( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in Spanish and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aislados en la selva del Alto Amazonas, los indios Achuar domestican simbólicamente un mundo salvaje que ellos han modificado apenas. Llenando la selva, los ríos y huertos, de parientes animales y vegetales que se deben seducir, obligar o mimar, este pueblo de guerreros da a la naturaleza todas las apareciencias de la sociedad. Partiendo de una etnografía minuciosa de la economía doméstica, el autor demuestra que esta ecología simbólica, no es un reflejo ilusorio de la realidad, porque influye en las elecciones tónicas de los Achuar, y sin duda, su destino histórico. Rechazando un idealismo que no tiene absolutamente en cuenta las condiciones materiales de existencia de los pueblos estudiados, y repudiando también un empirismo ingenuo que ve, en las creencias y representaciones, simplemente un reflejo de las formas de vida, Philippe Descola se ha dedicado a la difícil tarea de detectar, en un pueblo poco conocido, lo que yo llamaría "la zona de interrelación": condici-nes materiales de existencia, medio geográfico etc., no como falsamente se podrían imaginar, independientemente de la presencia del hombre, sino percibidos como los hombres los van conociendo y ya transformados por la mano del hombre. Este libro, por tanto, no es solamente una contribución histórica y etnográfica para el mejor conocimiento de una zona del Nuevo Mundo particularmente importante, zona de unión de las altas culturas andinas y las de la selva: es una obra de gran interés teórico y metodológico, que encauza la reflexión antropológica en nuevos caminos

El narco by Ioan Grillo( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beggar the imagination of journalistic witnesses. Cartel gunmen have shot up schools and rehabilitation centers, and murdered the entire families of those who defy them. Reformers and law enforcement officials have been gunned down within hours of taking office. Headless corpses are dumped on streets to intimidate rivals, and severed heads are rolled onto dancefloors as messages to would-be opponents. And the war is creeping northward.El Narco is the story of the ultraviolent criminal organizations that have turned huge areas of Mexico into a combat zone. It is a piercing portrait of a drug trade that turns ordinary men into mass murderers, as well as a diagnosis of what drives the cartels and what gives them such power. Veteran Mexico correspondent Ioan Grillo traces the gangs from their origins as smugglers to their present status as criminal empires. The narco cartels are a threat to the Mexican government, and their violence has now reached as far as North Carolina.El Narco is required reading for anyone concerned about one of the most important news stories of the decade."
