How and to what degree are women worldwide gaining and using power? This book offers the first genuinely comparative assessment of this key question by exploring the conditions, actions, and accomplishments of women in Latin America and Asia. Encompassing 60 percent of the world's population and experiencing far-reaching transformations, these two regions offer a vital window into our understanding of the experiences of women globally. Revealing both basic similarities and fundamental differences, this volume offers thoughtful insights about the changing conditions of women, on the one hand, and, on the other, about patterns of social change throughout Asia and Latin America.

Just as Mexican national life has come to center on the sprawling, dynamic, almost indefinable metropolis of Mexico City, so recent Mexican cinema has focused on the city not merely as a setting for films but almost as a protagonist in its own right, whose conditions both create meaning for and receive meaning from the human lives lived in its midst. Through close readings of fourteen recent critically acclaimed films, this book watches Mexican cinema in this process of producing cultural meaning through its creation, enaction, and interpretation of the idea of Mexico City. David William Foster analyzes how Mexican filmmakers have used Mexico City as a vehicle for exploring such issues as crime, living space, street life, youth culture, political and police corruption, safety hazards, gender roles, and ethnic and social identities. The book is divided into three sections. "Politics of the City" examines the films Rojo amanecer, Novia que te vea, Frida, naturaleza viva, and Sexo, pudor y lágrimas. "Human Geographies" looks at El Callejón de los Milagros, Mecánica nacional, El castillo de la pureza, Todo el poder, and Lolo. "Mapping Gender" discusses Danzón, De noche vienes, Esmeralda, La tarea, Lola, and Entre Pancho Villa y una mujer desnuda.

This fascinating collection of essays and articles shows how Latin Americans travels and residency abroad helped them re-examine their own origins and perceptions of their homeland. Latin Americans traveled both purposefully and frequently in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Strange Pilgrimages reveals their experiences in Europe and the United States, and explores their power to shape opinions and bring outside influence back to Latin America. This new book analyzes Latin Americans; longstanding attraction to and interest in other cultures as barometers of their own progress. In addition, Strange Pilgrimages examines the invention of tradition, cultural practice, and identity formation among nation-states. A combination of articles and primary sources provides readers with both informed analysis of the experiences of Latin American travellers and entertaining first-hand accounts from the travellers and exiles themselves. These travellers were a diverse group that included artists, diplomats, political exiles, athletes, dilettantes, and more. Readers will learn that Latin Americans came to understand their homelands better and in fact helped to define their own countries; identities through their experiences traveling and living abroad.

Recreating Eden: A Natural History of Botanical Gardens takes garden lovers on a tour of nine of the most beautiful and interesting gardens in the world. It is also a lively history of the idea of the botanical garden and its origins in what the Mosaic tradition calls the Garden of Eden. Although in other cultures it has different names, humans have yearned for this mythic place of peace and joy from which they were expelled. The founders of the first `botanic' gardens in the sixteenth century attempted to create an Eden that contained a complete collection of all things created by God. Author Mary Soderstrom explores how these gardens have evolved over the last 400 years by guiding us through a selection of botanical gardens that she has visited. Gardens of Empire - Hortus Botanicus at Leiden in the Netherlands - Jardin des plantes in Paris - Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew near London Gardens of the Nineteenth Century - Singapore Botanic Gardens - Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis - New York Botanical Garden Gardens of the Twentieth Century - Jardin botanique de Montréal - Strybing Arboretum and Botanical Garden in San Francisco - University of British Columbia Botanical Garden, VancouverM Featuring: 12 colour plates Black & white photographs throughout A history of each botanical garden Getting there, entrance fees, what to look for, other nearby gardens, Web sites

From plaid jacket and toque-wearing films shot in the Arctic to co-productions filmed in tropical climes, and from films shot in six weeks on a shoestring to ten-year ordeals that nearly meant the end of everyone involved our directors and actors have done it all. Using the guide's convenient cross-indexing, follow the first big breaks, the roller-coaster rides, and the latest endeavours of your favourite Canadian talent. Through his distinguished career, Gerald Pratley has made an extraordinary impact on Canadian cinema. In 1948, he became CBC's first film critic and commentator, broadcasting every week until 1976. He founded the Ontario Film Institute in 1968 and has been active in the industry ever since. Numerous honours have been awarded to Pratley in appreciation of his years of commitment.
