This book approaches the topic of false friends from a theoretical perspective, arguing that false friends carry out a positive role as a cognitive device, mainly in literature and jokes, and suggesting some pragmatic strategies in order to restore the original sense of a text/utterance when a given translator (or a foreign speaker) falls victim to false friends. This theoretical account is successively verified by appealing to texts from the fields of literature, science, philosophy, journalism, and everyday speech.

It discusses recent trends and strategies in FDI flows to the region; operations of transnational corporations and banks in the region; corporate strategies in relation to natural resources, local markets for services, investments and asset purchases in the services sector. The publication also contains chapters on TNC competitiveness strategies to capture export markets in Costa Rica, Honduras, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic; and investment and business strategies in the car industry, focusing in particular on the automotive industries in Brazil and Mexico.

The social situation in Latin America in the late 1990s was influenced by the slowdown and greater volatility of economic growth. Despite the economic recovery seen in 2000, the effects of the contraction were felt in many countries of the region. Thus, although progress was made in improving the Latin American population's living conditions the number of poor people has grown. This phenomenon has compounded by the persistent inequality of income distribution in the region and by the performance of the labour market, which has generally been unable to absorb the labour force into the formal economy. The result has been increasing informality and unemployment, which has in turn been exacerbated by the recent economic slowdown. The 2000-2001 edition of the Social Panorama devotes special attention to poverty trends and rates in the late 1990s, inequality in income distribution, the employment and unemployment situation, the countries' progress in raising social expenditure and the redistributive effects of such increases. It provides new poverty estimates for the countries of the region based on household surveys conducted around 1999.
Joan Miro (1893-1983) was a key figure in twentieth-century art, and one of the most engaging artists of our time. He left behind a remarkable legacy, a body of work that continues to reach an increasingly wide public today. Now, some ten years after his death, and to mark the centenary of his birth, this sumptuously illustrated volume offers new information and insights into Miro's long and extremely productive career. Author Jacques Dupin has considerably revised and enriched his original far-reaching study of Joan Miro, published by Abrams in 1962. He has taken into account not only the painter's output during the last two decades of his life, but also a great number of documents discovered after his death - projects, sketchbooks, texts, poems, correspondence (to which Dupin had privileged access through his relationship with Miro's family) - as well as studies by art historians and curators that have appeared over the last twenty years. Far from limiting his analysis to the artist's painting, Dupin has explored the almost infinite universe of Miro's imagination. Thus he surveys the artist's experiments in such diverse fields as sculpture, lithography, book illustration, ceramics, mural painting, and stage and costume design. A passionate creator in the world of the plastic arts, and an equally passionate lover of words, of the most audacious poetical games, Miro was an artist of the subconscious, constantly in pursuit of the dreams which inspired some of his finest canvases. Nearly 500 illustrations, 200 in full color, reproduce works from every phase of Miro's career. An illustrated chronology, an extensive bibliography, and a list of exhibitions add to the value of this superbvolume, an indispensable addition to the literature on modern art.
