"¡Nuestra televisión es Disneylandia! ¡Es de hombres guapos y mujeres hermosas! ¡Vendemos sueños, no vendemos realidades!" EMILIO AZCÁRRAGA MILMO "¡Nuestra televisión es Disneylandia! ¡Es de hombres guapos y mujeres hermosas! ¡Vendemos sueños, no vendemos realidades!" EMILIO AZCÁRRAGA MILMO Desde su aparición en 2000, con más de 70 mil ejemplares vendidos, El Tigre se ha convertido en un clásico del periodismo contemporáneo en nuestro país: se trata de la primera biografía no autorizada de un hombre de negocios mexicano. Fruto de media década de investigación y de más de 200 entrevistas, El Tigre aborda no sólo la trayectoria de Emilio Azcárraga Milmo, sino que da cuenta de la historia de una nación desde la perspectiva del desarrollo de los medios de comunicación y su relación con las élites políticas. Se comprueba en esta edición revisada la gran vigencia del trabajo de Claudia Fernández y Andrew Paxman, con el que han contribuido de manera notable al continuo debate sobre la regulación de los medios, el feudalismo del sector privado y la influencia socio-cultural de Televisa. En un nuevo prefacio, se analizan, entre otros asuntos, el papel que desempeñó la televisora en el regreso del PRI a Los Pinos en 2012 y los retos que afronta el heredero del imperio: Azcárraga Jean. "Este libro demuestra cómo, en la segunda mitad del siglo XX, la presidencia sin límites del viejo sistema autoritario mexicano estuvo sostenida por dos monopolios: un partido corporativo de Estado -el PRI-, y una enorme empresa que se constituyó en la fuente principal, casi única, de noticias e interpretación de la realidad para el grueso de los mexicanos: Televisa." LORENZO MEYER, historiador y politólogo "No exagero si afirmo que Fernández y Paxman inauguran con esta obra un género del periodismo mexicano. La biografía inédita, sin prejuicios maniqueístas, explora por igual luces que sombras, debilidades que fortalezas." RICARDO ROCHA, periodista Nueva edición, revisada y actualizada

This entertaining history of Cuba and its music begins with the collision of Spain and Africa and continues through the era of Miguelito Valdes, Arsenio Rodriguez, Benny More, and Perez Prado. It offers a behind-the-scenes examination of music from a Cuban point of view, unearthing surprising, provocative connections and making the case that Cuba was fundamental to the evolution of music in the New World. The ways in which the music of black slaves transformed 16th-century Europe, how the "claves" appeared, and how Cuban music influenced ragtime, jazz, and rhythm and blues are revealed. Music lovers will follow this journey from Andalucia, the Congo, the Calabar, Dahomey, and Yorubaland via Cuba to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Saint-Domingue, New Orleans, New York, and Miami. The music is placed in a historical context that considers the complexities of the slave trade; Cuba's relationship to the United States; its revolutionary political traditions; the music of Santeria, Palo, Abakua, and Vodu; and much more.

"The one source that sets reference collections on Latin American studies apart from all other geographic areas of the world.... The Handbook has provided scholars interested in Latin America with a bibliographical source of a quality unavailable to scholars in most other branches of area studies." —Latin American Research Review Beginning with volume 41 (1979), the University of Texas Press became the publisher of the Handbook of Latin American Studies, the most comprehensive annual bibliography in the field. Compiled by the Hispanic Division of the Library of Congress and annotated by a corps of more than 130 specialists in various disciplines, the Handbook alternates from year to year between social sciences and humanities. The Handbook annotates works on Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and the Guianas, Spanish South America, and Brazil, as well as materials covering Latin America as a whole. Most of the subsections are preceded by introductory essays that serve as biannual evaluations of the literature and research under way in specialized areas. The Handbook of Latin American Studies is the oldest continuing reference work in the field. Lawrence Boudon, of the Library of Congress Hispanic Division, has been the editor since 2000, and Katherine D. McCann has been assistant editor since 1999. The subject categories for Volume 60 are as follows: Art History (including ethnohistory) Literature (including translations from the Spanish and Portuguese) Music Philosophy: Latin American Thought

Few Mexican musicians in the twentieth century achieved as much notoriety or had such an international impact as the popular singer and songwriter Agustín Lara (1897-1970). Widely known as "el flaco de oro" ("the Golden Skinny"), this remarkably thin fellow was prolific across the genres of bolero, ballad, and folk. His most beloved "Granada", a song so enduring that it has been covered by the likes of Mario Lanza, Frank Sinatra, and Placido Domingo, is today a standard in the vocal repertory. However, there exists very little biographical literature on Lara in English. In Agustín Lara: A Cultural Biography, author Andrew Wood's informed and informative placement of Lara's work in a broader cultural context presents a rich and comprehensive reading of the life of this significant musical figure. Lara's career as a media celebrity as well as musician provides an excellent window on Mexican society in the mid-twentieth century and on popular culture in Latin America. Wood also delves into Lara's music itself, bringing to light how the composer's work unites a number of important currents in Latin music of his day, particularly the bolero. With close musicological focus and in-depth cultural analysis riding alongside the biographical narrative, Agustin Lara: A Cultural Biography is a welcome read to aficionados and performers of Latin American musics, as well as a valuable addition to the study of modern Mexican music and Latin American popular culture as a whole.
