Andalucia is the quintessence of Spain and yet, historically and culturally, it is surprisingly unlike the rest of the country. Its literary history began to develop with the Romans and reached an early flowering when Arabic poets drew on centuries of literary tradition, together with the landscapes and passions of Moorish Spain. Later, Prosper Mérimée, Byron and Washington Irving forged legends of exotic southern Spain that persist to this day and Spanish writers themselves captured the rich tapestry of Andalucian culture, from Cervantes' Seville to the Córdoba of Baroque poet Luis de Góngora and Lorca's 'hidden Andalucia'. With the advent of the Civil War, a new generation flocked to Andalucia and were inspired to write some of the Twentieth Century's most iconic works of literature, from Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls to Gerald Brenan's The Spanish Labyrinth and Laurie Lee's trilogy of books. As vibrant and compelling as the region itself, Andalucia: A Literary Guide for Travellers illuminates the very soul of Spain.

Hailed as early Christian texts as important as the Dead Sea Scrolls, yet condemned by the Vatican as Islamic heresies, the Lead books of Granada, written on discs of lead and unearthed on a Granadan hillside, weave a mysterious tale of duplicity and daring set in the religious crucible of sixteenth-century Spain. This book evaluates the cultural status and importance of these polyvalent, ambiguous artefacts which embody many of the dualities and paradoxes inherent in the racial and religious dilemmas of Early Modern Spain. Using the words of key individuals, and set against the background of conflict between Spanish Christians and Moriscos in the late fifteen-hundreds, The Lead Books of Granada tells a story of resilient resistance and creative ingenuity in the face of impossibly powerful negative forces, a resistance embodied by a small group of courageous, idealistic men who lived a double life in Granada just before the expulsion of the Moriscos.

The term "friendly fire" was coined in the 1970s but the theme appears in literature from ancient times to the present. It begins the narrative in Aeschylus's Persians and Larry Heinemann's Paco's Story. It marks the turning point in Homer's Iliad, Virgil's Aeneid, the Chanson de Roland, Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage and Tim O'Brien's Going After Cacciato. It is the subject of transformative disclosure in Jaan Kross's Czar's Madman, Ron Kovic's Born on the Fourth of July, O'Brien's In the Lake of the Woods and A.B. Yehoshua's Friendly Fire. In some stories, events propel the characters into a friendly-fire catastrophe, as in Thomas Taylor's A Piece of this Country and Oliver Stone's 1986 film Platoon. This study examines friendly fire in a broad range of literary contexts.

Meesterlijke roman over moed, liefde, vrijheid en een verdwenen cultuur In 1568 brak er rebellie uit in de Alpujarras, een berggebied in het zuiden van Spanje. De morisken moslims die onder dwang bekeerd zijn tot het christendom hadden genoeg van de rechtsongelijkheid, de plunderingen en de vernederingen van hun volk en kwamen in opstand. Hun strijd mislukte echter. Ze werden verslagen, verspreid over het koninkrijk Castilië en ten slotte in 1609 verdreven. Onder de rebellen bevindt zich de jonge Hernando, die zich na de nederlaag van 1568 in Córdoba vestigt en daar een bestaan opbouwt. Hij richt al zijn energie op het eerherstel van zijn onderdrukte cultuur en religie. Daarvoor moet hij grote risicos en gedurfde initiatieven nemen. Intussen dingt hij naar de hand van Fatima, een mooie jonge vrouw met donkere, amandelvormige ogen. De hand van Fatima is een roman vol vaart en verve, die tegen de achtergrond van de tragische geschiedenis van de Spaanse Moren het verhaal vertelt van een man die tussen twee werelden leeft, die zich niet gewonnen wil geven maar vecht voor zijn liefde en voor een vreedzaam bestaan.

This book is the result of two scientific encounters hosted by the University of Évora in 2012, with the theme “Muslims and Jews in Portugal and the Diaspora. Identities and Memories (16th–17th centuries)”, and co-financed by the Foundation for Science and Technology, and by FEDER, through “Eixo I” of the “Programa Operacional Fatores de Competitividade” (POFC) of QREN (COMPETE). Beginning with an analysis of the forced conversion of Iberian Jews and Muslims, this volume examines the effects of this on their respective diasporas, focusing on a variety of approaches, from language and culture to identity discourses and interchanges between those communities.

Andalusien, 1568. Nach Jahren der Unterdrückung erheben sich die spanischen Muslime gegen ihre christlichen Peiniger. Unter den Aufständischen ist auch der junge Maure Hernando, der sein Volk und seine Kultur vor dem Untergang retten will. Doch die Revolte wird bald zum blutigen Glaubenskrieg, und angesichts der von beiden Seiten begangenen Grausamkeiten wächst in Hernando das Bedürfnis nach Frieden und Aussöhnung der Religionen – ein Ziel, dem er fortan sein Leben widmet. In seinem neuen Weltbestseller über Glaube und Versöhnung erzählt Falcones die ergreifende Geschichte vom Aufstand der Muslime bis zu ihrer endgültigen Vertreibung, und entführt uns in ein faszinierendes al-Andalus am Wendepunkt der europäischen Geschichte.

Winner of the 2009 Lora Romero First Book Prize from the American Studies Association 2009 Choice Outstanding Academic Title Migrant Imaginaries explores the transnational movements of Mexican migrants in pursuit of labor and civil rights in the United States from the 1920s onward. Working through key historical moments such as the 1930s, the Chicano Movement, and contemporary globalization and neoliberalism, Alicia Schmidt Camacho examines the relationship between ethnic Mexican expressive culture and the practices sustaining migrant social movements. Combining sustained historical engagement with theoretical inquiries, she addresses how struggles for racial and gender equity, cross-border unity, and economic justice have defined the Mexican presence in the United States since 1910. Schmidt Camacho covers a range of archives and sources, including migrant testimonials and songs, Amrico Parede’s last published novel, The Shadow, the film Salt of the Earth, the foundational manifestos of El Movimiento, Richard Rodriguez’s memoirs, narratives by Marisela Norte and Rosario Sanmiguel, and testimonios of Mexican women workers and human rights activists, as well as significant ethnographic research. Throughout, she demonstrates how Mexicans and Mexican Americans imagined their communal ties across the border, and used those bonds to contest their noncitizen status. Migrant Imaginaries places migrants at the center of the hemisphere’s most pressing concerns, contending that border crossers have long been vital to social change.
