Power and Popular Protest

"A wonderful starting point for studying social movements in contemporary Latin America and for analyzing how unique processes of dependent capitalist development, and attendant political structures, influence their emergence and impact. This edited volume comes just in time, before we get too carried away with Euro-centered theories of new social movements and lose sight of what is really happening at the grassroots. It is one of the first collections of its kind published in English, and as such it is a rich and long-overdue contribution. "—Diane E. Davis, Journal of Inter-American Studies and World Affairs "Carefully conceived, Power and Popular Protest is a superb text to be consulted in the years to come by anyone interested in understanding contemporary Latin American politics and society."—Rosario Espinal, Contemporary Sociology

Popular Resistance in the French Wars

In the Napoleonic period warfare ceased to be a matter for armies alone, but also became an affair of the people. So, at least, runs the usual claim. In Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany and Russia outraged peasants and townsfolk rose against the French armies and fell upon them without mercy. From these insurrections we get the modern word 'guerrilla', but did armed civilians really play an important a role in the struggle? In this collection of essays a group of specialists on the Napoleonic epoch tease out the question, and arrive at some startling conclusions.

El coronel Puigdengolas y la batalla de Badajoz

El coronel Ildefonso Puigdengolas Ponce de León (1876-1936) fue un veterano que luchó en Cuba y Marruecos y desarrolló su historial en el Cuerpo de Seguridad, institución policial de la Segunda República. Bien considerado por los políticos republicanos, fue nombrado gobernador militar de Badajoz, ciudad que fue tomada por las fuerzas sublevadas. Las verdaderas circunstancias de la caída de Badajoz han estado ocultas hasta hace muy poco por la prensa-propaganda de la época, que escondió y deformó lo que realmente sucedió. Del máximo responsable militar de la defensa de Badajoz no sabíamos casi nada y muchos de los datos que circulaban sobre él eran difusos y contradictorios. Este libro aporta información nueva sobre su vida y su personalidad, pero también desmiente falsedades vertidas sobre este militar y el que fue el episodio más importante de su carrera.

Guerrilla Warfare

Guerrilla Warfare (Spanish: La Guerra de Guerrillas) is a book by Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara that was written right after the Cuban Revolution and published in 1961. It soon became the guidebook for thousands of guerrilla fighters in various countries around the world.After his success in the Cuban Revolution, Che Guevara gained a global reputation as a rising revolutionary figure, which eventually led him to write Guerilla Warfare. In the manual, Guevara espouses three reasons for revolution: a lack of legitimacy by the incumbent elite to govern the country, the existence of tensions that cannot by redressed by regular channels, and all legal avenues to change the situation are perceived as closed. Although providing enough evidence and support for his ideas and tactics, Guevara on multiple occasions states that, while these tactics were effective for him and his men in Cuba, they will not necessarily be successful in other regions. Guerrilla Warfare is a manual for the left-wing insurgency that draws on Guevara's experience as a participant in the Cuban revolution. It elaborates the foco theory (foquismo), for which the guerrilla operates as a vanguard even before the development of the "objective" conditions for a popular uprising.While many draw parallels with Mao Zedong's On Guerrilla Warfare, Guevara claimed he had not read Mao's book. Instead it draws on the lessons of fighting during the Cuban Revolutionary War, which in turn were informed by two books from the Spanish Civil War, Nuevas guerras and Medicina contra invasi�n, stressing the need for an underpinning political motivation to guerrilla methods, organisation and supply.Guevara goes on and divides the book into three different Chapters, each entailing their own perspectives on the roles of those who belong to a revolutionary cause. The first chapter labeled "General Principles of Guerrilla Warfare", goes on and discusses the basics of what it means to be part of a Guerrilla War, the topics range from the essences of Guerrilla Warfare to tactics, strategies, and suburban warfare. Chapter two labeled "The Guerrilla Band" talks about the roles that a Guerrilla fighter must take on while being part of a revolution, things ranging from being a Social Reformer to being a combatant, to even the organization and development of the band before and after the war. Chapter three labeled "Organization of Guerilla Front" which focuses more on the logistics of a Guerrilla War, ranging from supplies to training, it is an all aspects sorts of a chapter which goes into further detail than the previous two chapters. Much of the manual is devoted to matters of a practical nature, such as the type of armaments best suited to guerrilla forces, and the optimum size of a given guerrilla band.Guevara emphasizes that guerrilla warfare is a favorable method only against totalitarian regimes, (such as the revolutionary war against the Batista dictatorship in Cuba), where political opposition and legal civil struggle is impossible to conduct. South African revolutionaries read the work in the early 1960s; former Minister of Intelligence, Ronnie Kasrils, notes that the Apartheid regime's police questioned his late wife about an order of "Che Guevara's book on guerrilla warfare."

Historical and Future Global Impacts of Armed Groups and Social Movements  Emerging Research and Opportunities

Resistance movements to economic measures and militaristic policies have been increasing in Latin America and the Caribbean since the 1960s. Indigenous and peasant movements are advancing against the exploitation of their territories by mining, oil, and other companies, as well as movements of migrants, women, and other popular rural and urban sectors. Historical and Future Global Impacts of Armed Groups and Social Movements: Emerging Research and Opportunities is an essential scholarly publication that examines resistance and alternative movements that protest existing government systems and political injustice. Featuring a wide range of topics such as neoliberalism, social movement, and dictatorship, this book is ideal for politicians, historians, diplomats, sociologists, international relations officers, policymakers, researchers, professionals, government officials, academicians, and students.

Guerrilla Warfare

As the author makes clear, every book has a history; Guerrilla Warfare is noexception. Together with its sequel Terrorism (and two companion readers) it was part of a wider study: to give a critical interpretation of guerrilla and terrorism theory and practice throughout history. It did not aim at providing a general theory of political violence, nor did it give instructions on how to conduct guerrilla warfare and terrorist operations. Its aim remains to bring about greater semantic and analytic clarity, and to do so at psychological as well as political levels. While the word guerrilla has been very popular, much less attention has been given to guerrilla warfare than to terrorism - even though the former has been politically more successful. The reasons for the lack of detailed attention are obvious: guerrilla operations take place far from big cities, in the countryside, in remote regions of a nation. In such areas there are no film cameras or recorders. In his probing new introduction, Laqueur points out that a review of strategies and the fate of guerrilla movements during the last two decades show certain common features. Both mainly concerned nationalists fighting for independence either against foreign occupants or against other ethnic groups within their own country. But despite the many attempts, only in two places—Afghanistan and Chechnya —were the guerrillas successful. According to Laqueur historical experience demonstrates that guerrilla movements have prevailed over incumbents only in specific conditions. Due to a constellation of factors, ranging from modern means of observation to increase in firepower. The author suggests that we may witness a combination of political warfare, propaganda, guerrilla operations and terrorism. In such cases, this could be a potent strategy for unsponsored revolutionary change. But either as social history or military strategy this work remains a crucial work of our times.

ERNESTO CHE GUEVARA

This book is a compilation of facts, and ideas expressed by Guevara in his own speeches, essays, interviews, working papers, diary, and others from conversations of family members, friends, subordinates, and Castro, including information from his best-known biographers and supporters’ persuasive works published in Cuba and out, after Che’s death in Bolivia. This was when he was not a threat to Fidel Castro’s megalomania, when Guevara did not constitute anymore a danger to Fidel’s dream of becoming a hero, and he would be the most important politician in America, even perhaps in the whole world. At that moment, it was very important for Castro to use his limitless power in the Cuban government to develop the instrumentality necessary to transform Che’s figure in what he is today, an icon.

Transpacific Revolutionaries

This book shows how Maoism was globalized during the 1949-1976 period, highlighting the agency of both Latin American and Chinese actors. While Maoism has long been known to have been influential in many social movements and guerrilla groups in Latin America, author Matthew Rothwell is the first to establish the way in which Latin American communists domesticated Maoism to Latin American conditions and turned Maoism into an influential political trend in many countries. By utilizing case studies of the formation of Maoist guerrilla groups and political parties in Mexico, Peru and Bolivia, the book shows how the movement of Chinese communist ideas to Latin America was the product of a highly organized effort that involved formal connections between Latin American activists and the Peoplee(tm)s Republic of China. It represents a major contribution to three developing fields of historical inquiry: Latin America in the Cold War, the global 1960s, and Chinese Maoist foreign relations.

Religion and Revolution

As Guevara wrote in La Guerra de guerrillas [Guerrilla Warfare]: [E]l guerrillero, como elemento consciente de la vanguardia popular, debe tener una conducta moral quelo acredite como verdadero sacerdote de la reforma que pretende.

Religion and Revolution

Religion and Revolution provides a comprehensive study of spiritual and political Islām in Ernesto Cardenal, the great Latin American poet, priest, and revolutionary. The work studies the relationship between Thomas Merton and Ṣūfism, Cardenal’s connection to spiritual Islām, as well as the Ṣūfī sources cited in his Cosmic Canticle. The work equally examines the impact of political Islām on his ideology, focusing particularly on his trip to Iran during the very triumph of the Islāmic Revolution. Using Cardenal’s “Interlude of the Revolution in Iran” as a starting point, the work provides a vivid and detailed description of the early days of the revolution as well as the ties between the Islāmic Republic of Iran and the Latin American left.
