In this landmark book, Seven Stories Press presents a powerful collection of literary, philosophical, and political writings of the masked Zapatista spokesperson, Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos. Introduced by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, and illustrated with beautiful black and white photographs, Our Word Is Our Weapon crystallizes "the passion of a rebel, the poetry of a movement, and the literary genius of indigenous Mexico." Marcos first captured world attention on January 1, 1994, when he and an indigenous guerrilla group calling themselves "Zapatistas" revolted against the Mexican government and seized key towns in Mexico's southernmost state of Chiapas. In the six years that have passed since their uprising, Marcos has altered the course of Mexican politics and emerged an international symbol of grassroots movement-building, rebellion, and democracy. The prolific stream of poetic political writings, tales, and traditional myths that Marcos has penned since January 1, 1994 fill more than four volumes. Our Word Is Our Weapon presents the best of these writings, many of which have never been published before in English. Throughout this remarkable book we hear the uncompromising voice of indigenous communities living in resistance, expressing through manifestos and myths the universal human urge for dignity, democracy, and liberation. It is the voice of a people refusing to be forgotten the voice of Mexico in transition, the voice of a people struggling for democracy by using their word as their only weapon.
21st Century Dissent contends that anarchism has considerably influenced the modern political landscape. Curran explores the contemporary face of anarchism as expressed via environmental protests and the anti-globalization movement.
Since the publication of Our Word is Our Weapon- which Publishers Weekly described as "strong as dignity and as subtle as love"-Mexico's enigmatic Zapatista leader has written some of his most brilliant and complex works. From a retelling of indigenous myths and legends, to visions of the future of Mexico, from searing critiques of the US war in Iraq, to clandestine radio broadcasts from the jungles of Chiapas, here is an amazing selection of writing that gives voice to the literary and poetic genius of Latin America's greatest living writer and rebel. Subcomandante Marcos is a spokesperson and strategist for the Zapatistas.
Mit einem Nachwort von Thomas Wörtche. Über das Buch: Die Journalisten Greg und Julio wollen vierhändig den großen Revolutionsroman des 20.Jahrhunderts schreiben – aber ehe es sich die beiden komischen und traurigen Romantiker versehen, sind sie in einer ultrageheimen Operation eines ultrageheimen US-Geheimdienstes gelandet, der so geheim ist, dass er selbst noch nicht einmal weiß, dass es ihn gibt. Nur sein Name ist bekannt: SD, das Shit Department. Da darf es auch niemanden wundern, wenn Leo Trotzki als Kriminalautor auftritt, außerdem Stan Laurel und Houdini, Sandokan und Max Klee. In seinem Opus magnum verschmilzt Paco Ignacio Taibo II Triviales, Revolutionslegenden, Mythen des Alltags und harte Realitäten zu einem vergnüglichen, spannenden und bunt glitzernden Monumentalpuzzle von literarischem Rang.
The book examines the rise of neoliberal militarism from the early 1970s to the present and its destructive impact on democratic practices, economic policies, notions of citizenship, race relations, and gender norms by focusing on how these changes affect the Chicana community and cultural production--Provided by publisher.
