Recent health scares such as H1N1 influenza have exposed children to frightening information that can be difficult to process. This thoughtful bilingual book helps them understand the abstract concept of largescale sickness and appreciate the role children play in the health of their community. It introduces young readers to a fascinating aspect of southwest history, and invites discussion of folk medicine and science, while also addressing children’s curiosities and fears. Recounting the two most deadly epidemics to strike the Southwest—smallpox in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and influenza during World War I—this beautifully illustrated narrative reveals that with tragedy comes heroism, as demonstrated by the children who bravely transported the smallpox vaccine from Mexico’s interior to New Mexico in 1805. Through the eyes of the protagonist José Amado “Amadito” Domínguez—a real child of the flu epidemic era who would later become Taos County’s first nuevomexicano physician—folklorist Lamadrid weaves together culture, history, mortality, and hope into a life-affirming lesson.

Malcolm K. Read employs a psychoanalytic model which sees civilization as a manner of instinctual renunciation in this analysis of selected texts from the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. Focusing on their moments of silence and contradiction, he demonstrates that certain attitudes toward the body expressed in these texts have a basis, albeit unconscious, in a motivation which is ultimately political. The central topics, deeply intertwined thematically and theoretically, relate to the nature and development of language; to the Baroque art of Gongora and Quevedo; to Feijoo's defense of the rationalist subject set against Torres Villarroel's subversion of the same; and to the neo-classical aesthetics of Luzan and Arteaga. The result is an interdisciplinary approach that challenges traditional assumptions in both literary criticism and linguistic historiography.

Defining the Mediterranean as a coherent region with distinct patterns of social, political, and cultural exchange, this interdisciplinary collection explores the production, modification, and circulation of identities based on religion, ethnicity, profession, gender, within three distinctive Mediterranean geographies. Contributors address such topics as interreligious conflict and accommodation; immigration and diaspora; polylingualism; classical imitation and canon formation; traffic in sacred objects; Mediterranean slavery; and the dream of a reintegrated Roman empire.
