...<b>The Pyramid Under The Cross: Franciscan Discourses Of Evangelization And The Nahua Christian Subject In Sixteenth-century Mexico.</b>, Diaz Balsera, Viviana; Balsera, Viviana Diaz
6 Diaz Balsera, Viviana; Balsera, Viviana Diaz ...The Pyramid Under The Cross: Franciscan Discourses Of Evangelization And The Nahua Christian Subject In Sixteenth-century Mexico.
Tucson, Arizona: Univ of Arizona Press, 2005. 0816523800 / 9780816523801 First Edition Hardcover in Jacket.
 Inscribed by Author
Unused, No flaws or blemishes, but for author's inscription.
The Pyramid under the Cross will be of interest to readers in the areas of Hispanic literatures, history, religion, anthropology, Latin American and cultural studies, and to those working in the field of colonial studies.
The Pyramid under the Cross looks at the epic project of Christianization as well as the limits of the Spanish spiritual colonizers' power to accomplish it.
The book focuses on activities of Franciscan missionaries who, as the first religious order to arrive, occupied the most important political and social centers in the Valley of Mexico and set the strategies of evangelization that others would follow.
One such activity, the Nahua theater of evangelization, is represented as an exemplary case of the inevitable cultural negotiation involved in the missionary process. The author explores not only the imposition of a Eurocentric worldview upon the Nahua but also the hybridization of this view as the spiritual colonizer attempted to encompass a new non-Western constituency and the latter interpreted Christianity according to its own cultural paradigms.

...<b>Literature and Humanitarian Reform in the Civil War Era.</b>, Eiselein, Gregory
9 Eiselein, Gregory ...Literature and Humanitarian Reform in the Civil War Era.
Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A. Indiana Univ Press, 1996. 0253330424 / 9780253330420 First Edition; First Printing; Full Number Line. Hardcover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality,
During the Civil War, a crisis erupted in philanthropy that dramatically changed humanitarian theories and practices, and demanded new approaches to humanitarian work.
This book tracks these upheavals and innovations within organized benevolence from 1859 to 1868, investigating the unorthodox humanitarian projects that flourished in this era. Certain writer-activists began to advocate an "eccentric benevolence" - a type of philanthropy that would undo the hierarchical distinction between powerful agents who bestow humanitarian assistance and weaker folks who receive it.
Among the figures Gregory Eiselein discusses are the anti-philanthropic Henry David Thoreau; the dangerously philanthropic John Brown; African American writers Harriet Wilson and Harriet Jacobs; and Walt Whitman and Louisa May Alcott, whose nursing experiences with the wounded led them to believe that hospital care should be centered around patients' attitudes, feelings, and needs.

...<b>The Technology of the Novel: Writing and Narrative in British Fiction.</b>, Jackson, Tony E.
14 Jackson, Tony E. ...The Technology of the Novel: Writing and Narrative in British Fiction.
U.S.A.: Johns Hopkins Univ Press, 2009. 0801892449 / 9780801892448 Hardcover in Jacket.
 
Unused, no flaws or blemishes.

The connection between speech and writing in human language has been a matter of philosophical debate since antiquity.
By plumbing the depths of this complex relationship, Tony E. Jackson explains how the technology of alphabetic writing has determined the nature of the modern novel.
Through striking new readings of works by Austen, Mary Shelley, Dickens, Forster, Woolf, Lessing, and McEwan, Jackson reveals how the phenomena of speech and storytelling interact with the technological characteristics of writing. He also explains how those interactions induced the generic changes in the novel from its eighteenth-century beginnings to postmodernism and beyond.
His claims, grounded in a contemporary understanding of human cognitive capacities and constraints, offer a fresh interpretive approach to all written literature.

Looks new, has pencil margin notes and some underlining.

This ambitious book attempts to rehistoricize the Golden Age of Spain (ca. 1550-1680) by placing literary production in its socio-cultural context. Drawing on theories of cultural materialism and making use of historical analysis, George Mariscal focuses on the ways in which the problem of subjectivity is constructed in the writing of the period, particularly the poetry of Francisco de Quevedo and Cervantes' Don Quixote.
