This story takes place in the early 16th Century; a time when the world seemed to be expanding at an almost exponential rate. It occurs in South America in a land known as Maya: this is not a tale of what was, but rather, a story of what might have been if I had been in charge of that era. The main character, Cuauhtémoc, is born in a small village in the northwestern part of Maya: the story line follows his life from birth, through birdman-school, where he learns to become a birdman and carry messages. The account unwinds, telling of his adventures, his fights with pirate raiders as well as some of his own people; and by end of the book he is twelve years of age and is sent to the City of Emperors by the Commander of the soldier’s garrison.
Cuauhtémoc Blanco loves to play soccer, and it shows on the field. Blanco has been part of Mexican professional soccer since 1992, and has since become one of the most famous players around. Cuau has been a part of Club América in Mexico, Valladolid in Spain, and the Chicago Fire in the United States, not to mention the Mexican national team. Discover how Blanco became such a great player--and where his skills have taken him. Wherever he goes, Blanco plays his best and earns fans' attention and admiration!
This story takes place in the early 16th Century; a time when the world seemed to be expanding at an almost exponential rate. It occurs in South America in a land known as Maya: this is not a tale of what was, but rather, a story of what might have been if I had been in charge of that era. In the second story, Cuauhtémoc is sent to the City of Emperors. He meets the old Emperor and in the process accidentally gives him a new name. He meets the three Crown Princes; gets into another fight with pirate raiders as well as several of his own people; saves the life of a young girl and very nearly kills the Sun’s High Priest: it was a busy week, even for him. The tale unwinds and in the end, Maya has a new Emperor, when the old Emperor dies . . . or does he? If you want to know more; read the book.
Mexico's views of the United States have been characterized as stridently anti-American, but recent policy changes in Mexico mark a fundamental transformation in the relationship. This thoughtful and original work answers questions about the impact of these policy shifts on Mexican nationalism and perceptions of the United States. As the only developing country to have entered into a free trade agreement (NAFTA) with a developed country, Mexico offers a unique and invaluable case study of the impact of globalization on a nation and its national identity. Exploring Mexico's experience also allows us to consider how other countries perceive the United States, especially in the post-9/11 climate. Analyzing the diversity of Mexican views of the United States, Gringolandia contributes a rich and nuanced dimension to our understanding of contemporary Mexico and Mexicans' feelings about the vital cross-border relationship.
Of all the historical characters known from the time of the Spanish conquest of the New World, none has proved more pervasive or controversial than that of the Indian interpreter, guide, mistress, and confidante of Hernán Cortés, Doña Maria — La Malinche — Malintzin, an American Indian woman who was given as a gift to Cortés. This is the first serious study tracing La Malinche in texts from the conquest period to the present day.
In 1949, a Group of Villagers and Amateur Archaeologists Dug Up what they believed to be the body of the last Aztec emperor, Cuauhtâemoc, in a remote village in the mountains of central Mexico. State and local leaders enthusiastically promoted the remarkable discovery, and nationalist celebrations erupted across the country. The festivities ended when professional archaeologists declared the tomb a forgery, igniting the greatest scandal in the cultural politics of modern Mexico. In this innovative study of nationalism, Paul Gillingham pieces together an intricate puzzle that stretches across five centuries and moves from the forests of southern Mexico, where Cuauhtâemoc was hanged, through the mountains of Guerrero, where he was re-created, to end in thestreets and corridors of power of Mexico City. The analysis captures the complex interactions of everyday people and elites engaged in forging a nation.

Scholars have long viewed histories of the Aztecs either as flawed chronologies plagued by internal inconsistencies and intersource discrepancies or as legends that indiscriminately mingle reality with the supernatural. But this new work draws fresh conclusions from these documents, proposing that Aztec dynastic history was recast by its sixteenth-century recorders not merely to glorify ancestors but to make sense out of the trauma of conquest and colonialism.The Aztec Kings is the first major study to take into account the Aztec cyclical conception of time--which required that history constantly be reinterpreted to achieve continuity between past and present--and to treat indigenous historical traditions as symbolic statements in narrative form. Susan Gillespie focuses on the dynastic history of the Mexica of Tenochtitlan, whose stories reveal how the Aztecs used "history" to construct, elaborate, and reify ideas about the nature of rulership and the cyclical nature of the cosmos, and how they projected the Spanish conquest deep into the Aztec past in order to make history accommodate that event. By demonstrating that most of Aztec history is nonliteral, she sheds new light on Aztec culture and on the function of history in society. By relating the cyclical structure of Aztec dynastic history to similar traditions of African and Polynesian peoples, she introduces a broader perspective on the function of history in society and on how and why history must change.
According to press reports, 2008 was the year that more bullets were fired in the recent history of Mexico. That same year, more than 5,000 people were killed in several episodes of violence and extrajudicial activity linked to drug trafficking and its repression. Teresa Margolles, who for nearly two decades has been concerned to explore the artistic possibilities of human remains, focused his participation in the Venice Biennale 2009 in a shipment conceptual, emotional and material evidence of the violence of the streets of Mexico the decadent luxury of the art world. What else could we talk?, Is much more than the documentation of the intervention Margolles in Venice. This book brings together multiple reflection (from the testimony, narrative, historical reflection and production) on a futile crusade against drugs and its pernicious effects. More than an art book is a volume that records the complex interference between violence, aesthetics and politics that emerged in Southern culture in the early twentieth century.
