“¡CIUDADANOS E INMIGRANTES RECIÉN LLEGADOS DEBERÍAN LEER ESTE LIBRO!” Estados Unidos venera su origen inmigrante, pero se está hundiendo en un sentimiento antiinmigrante extraordi¬nario. Esta es una llamada de atención para el bien del país y TODOS sus ciudadanos. POR PRIMERA VEZ EN SU HISTORIA MODERNA, Estados Unidos se está convirtiendo en un país hostil hacia el recién llegado. El despertar del sueño americano nos muestra cómo el tono negativo y las prácticas antiinmigrantes de hoy amenazan la estabilidad social y económica de un país que se hizo grande gracias a los mismos extranjeros, quienes arribaron en todas sus épocas para trabajar en los oficios más duros y necesarios, permitiendo el progreso de los que llegaron antes. PILAR MARRERO, reportera y editora del diario La Opinión, es una de las periodistas hispanas más solicitadas en Estados Unidos, sirviendo de analista para noticieros en español e inglés como CNN, CNN en español, BBC World, NBC Channel 4 News en Los Ángeles y Al Punto con Jorge Ramos de Univisión, entre otros. Actualmente vive en Los Ángeles, California.

As the US deports record numbers of illegal immigrants and local and state governments scramble to pass laws resembling dystopian police states where anyone can be questioned and neighbors are encouraged to report on one another, violent anti-immigration rhetoric is growing across the nation. Against this tide of hysteria, Pilar Marrero reveals how damaging this rise in malice toward immigrants is not only to the individuals, but to our country as a whole. Marrero explores the rise in hate groups and violence targeting the foreign-born from the 1986 Immigration Act to the increasing legislative madness of laws like Arizona's SB1070 which allows law officers to demand documentation from any individual with "reasonable suspicion" of citizenship, essentially encouraging states and municipalities to form their own self-contained nation-states devoid of immigrants. Assessing the current status quo of immigration, Marrero reveals the economic drain these ardent anti-immigration policies have as they deplete the nation of an educated work force, undermine efforts to stabilize tax bases and social security, and turn the American Dream from a time honored hallmark of the nation into an unattainable fantasy for all immigrants of the present and future.

Awakening From The American Dream… From Crisis To Consciousness… is an expose’ of the American Dream as illusory enculturation. It is a call to awakening to true reality in which happiness is not something to be pursued, but rather innately experienced as one’s birthright. The book invites readers to wake up from the American Dream, rather than trying to make it work or creating a new dream. A dream is a dream… it can never be reality. Part One focuses on the initial stages of awakening, beginning to question Dream beliefs, like the pursuit of happiness (if you’re chasing it you don’t have it!). Part Two uses the Socratic Method to question popular myths about life in America, relative to twelve specific areas of life (like the economy, health, marriage, religion, etc.). Readers are invited to challenge their own convictions and open to new possibilities. Part Three is about what it is like to live wide-awake, taking personal responsibility for the reality you create and being a leader by example for others.

This book broadens the scope of Latina/o criticism to include both widely-read and understudied nineteenth through twenty-first century fictional works that engage in critical discussions of gender, race, sexuality, and identity. The essays in this collection do not simply seek inclusion for the texts they critically discuss, but suggest that we more thoughtfully consider the utility of mapping, whether we are mapping land, borders, time, migration, or connections and disconnections across time and space. Using new and rigorous methodological approaches to reading Latina/o literature, contributors reveal a varied and textured landscape, challenging us to reconsider the process and influence of literary production across borders.

Esmeralda Santiago's story begins in rural Puerto Rico, where her childhood was full of both tenderness and domestic strife, tropical sounds and sights as well as poverty. Growing up, she learned the proper way to eat a guava, the sound of tree frogs in the mango groves at night, the taste of the delectable sausage called morcilla, and the formula for ushering a dead baby's soul to heaven. As she enters school we see the clash, both hilarious and fierce, of Puerto Rican and Yankee culture. When her mother, Mami, a force of nature, takes off to New York with her seven, soon to be eleven children, Esmeralda, the oldest, must learn new rules, a new language, and eventually take on a new identity. In this first volume of her much-praised, bestselling trilogy, Santiago brilliantly recreates the idyllic landscape and tumultuous family life of her earliest years and her tremendous journey from the barrio to Brooklyn, from translating for her mother at the welfare office to high honors at Harvard.

While many professional translators believe the ability to translate is a gift that one either has or does not have, Allison Beeby Lonsdale questions this view. In her innovative book, she demonstrates how teachers can guide their students by showing them how insights from communication theory, discourse analysis, pragmatics, and semiotics can illuminate the translation process. Using Spanish to English translation as her example, she presents the basic principles of translation through 29 teaching units, which are prefaced by objectives, tasks, and commentaries for the teacher, and through 48 task sheets, which show how to present the material to students.

Starring Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne and directed by Academy Award-winner Tom Hooper, this major motion picture portrays an unforgettable celebration of love. It starts with a question, a simple favour asked by a wife of her husband, setting off a transformation neither can anticipate. Einar Wegener and his American wife Greta Waud have been married for six years, but are yet to have a child. Both painters, they live a life of bohemian languor in Copenhagen until one day their lives are irreversibly altered. The Danish Girl eloquently shows the intimacy that defines a marriage and the nearly forgotten story of the love between a man who discovers that he is, in fact, a woman, and his wife who would sacrifice anything for him. Set against the glitz and decadence of 1920s Copenhagen, Paris and Dresden, and inspired by a true story, The Danish Girl is about one of the most passionate and unusual marriages of the twentieth century. 'a story of true love, suffering and sacrifice' - Sunday Telegraph
