Thanks to her wealthy and well-connected family, twenty-six-year-old Marta is used to getting whatever she wants. And what she wants is a good time. That is, until her father's wife--the woman who raised her--becomes ill. Beautiful young Marta is forced to witness her unfaithful, brutish father abandon her adoptive mother in her final moments. After her father's swift remarriage, Marta is surprised to discover that she is now the sole heir of her late mother's sizeable estate. For the first time, she can choose to cut ties and establish her true self, apart from her parents, her social standing, and the complications of a life of excess. From the balmy beaches of Mexico to New York City, Marta searches for clues to her unconventional heritage and seeks to shed her family's tradition of secrecy and betrayal as she finds her own way.

This book describes the development process and dynamics of change in the course of implementing a two-way bilingual immersion education program in two school communities. The focus is on the language and literacy learning of elementary-school students and on how it is influenced by parents, teachers, and policymakers. Pérez provides rich, highly detailed descriptions, both quantitative and qualitative, of the change process at the two schools involved, including student language and achievement data for five years of program implementation that were used to test the basic two-way bilingual theory, the specific school interventions, and the particular classroom instructional practices. The contribution of Becoming Biliterate: A Study of Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Education is to provide a comprehensive description of contextual and instructional factors that might help or hinder the attainment of successful literacy and student outcomes in both languages. The study has broad theoretical, policy, and practical instructional relevance for the many other U.S. school districts with large student populations of non-native speakers of English. This volume is highly relevant for researchers, teacher educators, and graduate students in bilingual and ESL education, language policy, linguistics, and language education, and as a text for master's- and doctoral-level classes in these areas.

This novel called CHANGE is an unusual but enlightening tale - it is an autobiography channelled from beyond the change we call death - a life story and an afterlife story which spans several decades and even more locations on Earth and beyond to the Astral and Spirit planes - describing some of the multi-dimensional levels of human existence. It is a fast-paced, roller coaster ride through the vivid and hedonistic 1960's and '70's in London and to 1980's war-torn Africa. It tells of one man's intense and adventurous life, his death and his descent into a personal hell before his eventual self-discovery. We learn how Change - the universal constant - touches this man in such a way that it has many different effects on both him and everyone who meets him. Running in parallel throughout the book is the present day life and loves of the medium - a psychic young man who channels the story from the discarnate and mysterious spirit who is the main character of the book and whose chronicle the story is. Above all, this is a human tale and it contains some of the worst and best examples of human qualities - the potential for which we all possess. CHANGE is about life and death - and life after death - and the inexorable inevitability of Change itself on all levels of existence. These are subjects that affect and concern us all.

With this masterful work, Louis A. Perez Jr. transforms the way we view Cuba and its relationship with the United States. On Becoming Cuban is a sweeping cultural history of the sustained encounter between the peoples of the two countries and of the ways that this encounter helped shape Cubans' identity, nationality, and sense of modernity from the early 1850s until the revolution of 1959. Using an enormous range of Cuban and U.S. sources--from archival records and oral interviews to popular magazines, novels, and motion pictures--Perez reveals a powerful web of everyday, bilateral connections between the United States and Cuba and shows how U.S. cultural forms had a critical influence on the development of Cubans' sense of themselves as a people and as a nation. He also articulates the cultural context for the revolution that erupted in Cuba in 1959. In the middle of the twentieth century, Perez argues, when economic hard times and political crises combined to make Cubans painfully aware that their American-influenced expectations of prosperity and modernity would not be realized, the stage was set for revolution.
