Chile: the making of a republic, 1830-1865 politics and ideas by Simon Collier( file )
14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,115 libraries worldwide
"Chile enjoyed unique prestige among the Spanish American republics of the nineteenth century for its stable and increasingly liberal political tradition. How did this unusual story unfold? The tradition was forged in serious and occasionally violent conflicts between the dominant Conservative Party, which governed in a sometimes authoritarian manner from 1830 to 1858, and the growing forces of political Liberalism. A major political realignment in 1857-8 paved the way for comprehensive liberalization. This book examines the formative period of the republic's history and combines an analysis of the ideas and assumptions of the Chilean political process from the consolidation of the Conservative regime in the 1830s to the beginnings of liberalization in the early 1860s. The book is based on a comprehensive survey of the writings and speeches of politicians and the often rumbustious Chilean press of the period."--Jacket

Sketches of life in Chile, 1841-1851 by José Joaquín Vallejo( Computer File )
12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 900 libraries worldwide
Writing under the pseudonym "Jotabeche," Jose Joaquin Vallejo wrote forty-one short articles on Chilean life and society in the early republic. Known for their caustic wit, his writings were an instant success when they were first published in Chilean magazines and newspapers. This volume presents these vivid essays for the first time in English. Vallejo made famous the style of writing termed "costumbrista"--Sketches and vignettes of society and local customs. He focused on the Norte Chico, or the mining zone of Copiapo where he was born and where he lived most of his later life. His essays i

Le grand tango : the life and music of Astor Piazzolla by María Susana Azzi( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 553 libraries worldwide
"Astor Piazzolla was a musical genius, a man who used the national dance of Argentina as raw material for a whole new musical genre. In Le Grand Tango, Maria Susana Azzi and Simon Collier vividly capture the life of this extraordinary musician - a visionary who won worldwide acclaim but sparked bitter controversy in his native land." "Azzi and Collier trace Piazzolla's early life from his birth in Argentina in 1921 to his childhood years on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where he first developed a talent for the bandoneon, the accordion-like instrument central to the tango. They describe his return to Argentina at age sixteen and his rapid rise in the intoxicating world of tango, where he quickly earned a place with the leading dance band and then formed his own group. But at the height of his success, Piazzolla decided to take tango music to a new level and studied composition with the legendary Nadia Boulanger in Paris. Azzi and Collier show how he created a dramatically new style of tango music influenced by jazz and classical pieces - a tango music meant for listening, not dancing. But they also show that in the birthplace of the tango he met fierce resistance. He eventually left Argentina for Europe, where he emerged as an international celebrity."--BOOK JACKET
A history of Chile, 1808-2002 by Simon Collier( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 552 libraries worldwide
"A History of Chile chronicles the nation's political, social, and economic evolution from its independence until the early years of the Lagos regime. Employing primary and secondary materials, it explores the growth of Chile's agricultural economy, during which the large landed estates appeared; the nineteenth-century wheat and mining booms; the rise of the nitrate mines; their replacement by copper mining; and the diversification of the nation's economic base. This volume also traces Chile's political development from oligarchy to democracy, culminating in the election of Salvador Allende, his overthrow by a military dictatorship, and the return of popularly elected governments. Additionally, the volume examines Chile's social and intellectual history: the process of urbanization, the spread of education and public health, the diminution of poverty, the creation of a rich intellectual and literary tradition, the experiences of middle and lower classes, and the development of Chile's unique culture."--BOOK JACKET

Este libro cuenta la historia del tango a traves de la erudicion de cuatro expertos. Simon Collier relata la evolucion del tango desde sus origenes, a mediados del siglo XIX, hasta la decada de los 20 y habla de sus primeros bailarines y musicos. Artemis Cooper se dedica a analizar el asombroso surgimiento de la tangomania en Europa y Estados Unidos en la decada de los 10, que comenzo cuando la alta sociedad parisiense cayo bajo el hechizo de sus ritmos sensuales e inmorales. La edad de oro del tango en la Argentina, desde 1920, hasta 1950, es analizada por Susana Azzi, quien da cuenta de todas las personalidades - directores de orquesta, musicos, bailarines y cantantes - que aparecieron en los gloriosos años de maximo esplendor del tango. Por ultimo, Richard Martin trata la polemica cuestion de la relacion entre tango y machismo y analiza lo inmensamente populares espectaculos de tango de los ultimos años, asi como el papel que este desempeña en el cine, el teatro, la literatura
