Before massive deforestation began in the 1960s, the Lacandón jungle, which lies on the border of Mexico and Guatemala, was part of the largest tropical rain forest north of the Amazon. The destruction of the Lacandón occurred with little attention from the international press—until January 1, 1994, when a group of armed Maya rebels led by a charismatic spokesperson who called himself Subcomandante Marcos emerged from jungle communities and briefly occupied several towns in the Mexican state of Chiapas.

14 Salas, Teresa Cajiao ___Women Writing Women: An Anthology of Spanish-American Theater of the 1980s (Suny Series in Latin American and Iberian Thought and Culture)

U.S.A. State University of New York Press 1997.
 9780791432068
 Soft cover.
 
No flaws or blemishes but minimal retail shelf handling. Unused; Unread.
This first anthology in English dedicated exclusively to Spanish-American women playwrights includes eight plays by award-winning authors who have received national and international acclaim.

While these playwrights articulate concerns similar to those of their male counterparts-social injustice, the question of identity, the role of art, the power of writing-their feminist perspectives offer a fresh view of Spanish America by challenging traditional male representations of women.

While the plays humorously reveal the cultural and social politics of each country, they also examine seriously the absurdities of everyday life.

The playwrights include Isidora Aguirre (Chile), Sabina Berman (Mexico), Myrna Casas (Puerto Rico), Teresa Marichal (Puerto Rico), Diana Raznovich (Argentina), Mariela Romero (Venezuela), Beatriz Seibel (Argentina), and Maruxa Vilalta (Mexico).

...<b>The Power of Glamour: The Women Who Defined the Magic of Stardom  </b>, Tapert, Annette

USA: Crown, 1998.
 9780517703762
 First Edition – First Printing.
 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 
When the Glamour Era met the Golden Age of cinema, it cast a spell on a public beaten by the Depression and the threat of war.

But the key ingredient in 1930s glamour was personality. Annette Tapert's movie-queen profiles, rich with fresh insights, reach beyond the star-making machinery, fan magazines, fashions, and cosmetics to the essence of each women: the carefully molded image of Gloria Swanson, who started it all . . . Marlene Dietrich's siren persona on and off screen . . . the "reverse glamour" of Katharine Hepburn and Greta Garbo.

Their power--and that of Joan Crawford, Carole Lombard, Norma Shearer, Claudette Colbert, and the long-neglected Kay Francis, Dolores Del Rio, and Constance Bennett--lay in using style, wit, and guile to outsmart the studio system and enchant the world.

In these pages we see how, veiled in intrigue and mystery, they brought glamour very close to its original meaning: witchcraft.
