First published in 1971, How to Read Donald Duck shocked readers by revealing how capitalist ideology operates in our most beloved cartoons. Having survived bonfires, impounding and being dumped into the ocean by the Chilean army, this controversial book is once again back on our shelves. Written and published during the blossoming of Salvador Allende's revolutionary socialism, the book examines how Disney comics not only reflect capitalist ideology, but are active agents working in this ideology's favour. Focusing on the hapless mice and ducks of Disney, curiously parentless, marginalised and always short of cash, Ariel Dorfman and Armand Mattelart expose how these characters established hegemonic ideas about capital, race, gender and the relationship between developed countries and the Third World. A devastating indictment of a media giant, a document of twentieth-century political upheaval, and a reminder of the dark undercurrent of pop culture, How to Read Donald Duck is once again available, together with a new introduction by Ariel Dorfman.

Gibler's is the first and only book available in English that is based on extensive interviews with survivors of the September 2014 killings and abductions of students in Iguala, Mexico. It is a peerless expose of the crimes and the official cover up. The only other book available in English on the subject ("The Iguala 43: The Truth and Challenge of Mexico's Disappeared Students" (Semiotext(e) - February 3, 2017) is, according to Gibler, based on Web searches and conjecture: the writer never once set foot in Ayotzinapa nor spoke with a single survivor or relative of the disappeared.Gibler is an internationally recognized authority on the Ayotzinapa attacks and has been referenced with prestige by the New Yorker and NPR's All Things Considered."The journalists John Gibler (the author of the book "To Die in Mexico") and Marcela Turati have provided the most complete reports of what happened in Iguala on the night of September 26th." -- Francisco Goldman in his New Yorker essay. NPR's All Things Considered reporter Arun Rath says, "Gibler has interviewed more than a dozen survivors and witnesses. He's pieced together the most detailed account yet of what happened that night."

"A multifaceted journey that is geographical, personal and political . . . A complex, nuanced view of United States-Latin American politics and relations of the last forty some years." -- Durham Herald-Sun "One of the most important voices coming out of South America." -- Salman Rushdie In September 1973, the military took power in Chile, and Ariel Dorfman, a young leftist allied with President Allende, was forced to flee for his life. In Feeding on Dreams, Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and with startling honesty, the personal and political maelstroms that have defined his life since the Pinochet coup. Dorfman's wry and masterfully told account takes us on a page-turning tour of the past several decades of North-South political history and of the complex consequences of revolution and tyranny, excavating for the first time his profound and provocative journey as an exile and the consequences for his wife and family. "Fascinating." -- San Francisco Examiner "A great book that will simultaneously undo us and sustain us." -- Tikkun

In this powerful cultural critique, Ariel Dorfman explores the political and social implications of the smiling faces that inhabit familiar books, comics, and magazines.

Text in Arabic. Tense and tightly woven, Thiqah is a dramatic novel set in Paris during World War II about a woman whose lover is accused of working for the Resistance. The novel follows nine hours of phone conversations between a woman and a mysterious stranger who seems to know everything about her and the reasons she fled her homeland. As the dialogue progresses, the man tells her many disturbing things about her and her lover (who may be in great danger), the political situations in which they are enmeshed, and his fantasies about her. Powerful and menacing, Thiqah draws the reader into a post-modern mystery where nothing -- including the text itself -- is what it seems.

The Trial of Henry Kissinger (Paperback, New): Christopher Hitchens The Trial of Henry Kissinger (Paperback, New)

"If the courts and lawyers of this country will not do their duty, we shall watch as the victims and survivors of this man pursue justice and vindication in their own dignified and painstaking way, and at their own expense, and we shall be put to shame."
Forget Pinochet, Milosevic, Hussein, Kim Jong-il, or Gaddafi: America need look no further than its own lauded leaders for a war criminal whose offenses rival those of the most heinous dictators in recent history-Henry Kissinger.
Employing evidence based on firsthand testimony, unpublished documents, and new information uncovered by the Freedom of Information Act, and using only what would hold up in international courts of law, THE TRIAL OF HENRY KISSINGER outlines atrocities authorized by the former secretary of state in Indochina, Bangladesh, Chile, Cyprus, East Timor, and in the plight of the Iraqi Kurds, "including conspiracy to commit murder, kidnap, and torture."
With the precision and tenacity of a prosecutor, Hitchens offers an unrepentant portrait of a felonious diplomat who "maintained that laws were like cobwebs," and implores governments around the world, including our own, to bring him swiftly to justice.

In the world of Chilean poet Ariel Dorfman, men and women can be forced to choose between leaving their country or dying for it. The living risk losing everything, but what they hold onto--love, faith, hope, truth--might change the world. It is this subversive possibility that speaks through these poems. A succession of voices--exiles, activists, separated lovers, the families of those victimized by political violence--gives an account of ruptured safety. They bear witness to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of personal and social damage in the aftermath of terror. The first bilingual edition of Dorfman's work, "In Case of Fire in a Foreign Land "includes ten new poems and a new preface, and brings back into print the classic poems of the celebrated "Last Waltz in Santiago." Always an eloquent voice against the ravages of inhumanity, Dorfman's poems, like his acclaimed novels, continue to be a searing testimony of hope in the midst of despair.

In this moving novel set in a Greek village in 1942, the corpses of disappeared men wash ashore. The village women claim the bodies as husbands and fathers, even though their faces are unrecognizable. A tug of war ensues between the local police, who insist the women cannot identify their loved ones, and the women, who demand the right to bury their dead. Their standoff becomes a struggle for dignity and honor against the forces of fascism. First published in 1983 and anticipating some of the themes of his award-winning play Death and the Maiden, Widows is Ariel Dorfmans eloquent tribute to those who have perished under totalitarian regimes. This is a classic parable of individual courage in the face of oppression from a literary grandmaster (Time). Lyrical and even elegiac ... Dorfman gives flesh to a human rights issue of our time.

Manifesto For Another World (Paperback): Ariel Dorfman Manifesto For Another World (Paperback)
Ariel Dorfman
R197 R184 Discovery Miles 1 840 Save R13 (7%) Out of stock

In this interlocking prose web of first-person testimony, novelist, poet, and playwright Ariel Dorfman relates the struggles of fifty human rights activists hailing from more than forty countries. Manifesto for Another World features the words and struggles of internationally celebrated activists including Vaclav Havel, Baltasar Garzon, Helen Prejean, and Marian Wright Edelman; and Nobel Prize Laureates the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel, Oscar Arias Sanchez, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, Jose Ramos-Horta, and Bobby Muller. Equally moving are the stories of more than thirty others, unknown and (as yet) unsung beyond their national boundaries: Kailash Satyarthi, who has spent a lifetime working to free tens of thousands of victims of child labor in his native India, and Juliana Dogbadzi, who was sold into sexual slavery by her parents at age twelve, escaped after seventeen degrading years, and now is devoted to the liberation of African girls bound in the same terror. From their ranging voices Dorfman culls the message: freedom from persecution, and freedom of opportunity, for all. Manifesto for Another World is both a political testament and a work of art.

Here, in the tradition of Barbara Kingsolver's national best seller "Small Wonder," are reflections on the meaning of America in a time of great crisis. "Let me tell you, America, of the hopes I had for you," Dorfman writes after the fall of the Twin Towers, remembering back to an earlier September 11th in 1973, when he was on the staff of, then President of Chile, Salvador Allende the day he was removed from office and murdered in a coup in which the U.S. government was complicit. "Beware the plague of victimhood, America. . . . Nothing is more dangerous than a giant who is afraid," Dorfman adds. In another essay he asks, "Isn't it time, as war approaches yet again, to tell each other stories of peace over and over again?" Dorfman weaves together sentiment and politics with his sense of the larger historical questions, reminding Americans of our unique role in the world, so different from the one put forward by the current administration: the power to resist and to imagine.

Described by "Newsweek" as "one of the greatest Latin American novelists," American-Chilean author Ariel Dorfman spent much of his childhood growing up in Queens, New York, and other locations in the U.S. As a Latino who writes each of his books in English and Spanish simultaneously, he offers us a bicultural, international perspective like few other American writers. Each of his books explores the relationship between reality and dreams in the many Americas. His books have been translated into over 30 languages and his plays have been staged in more than 100 countries. He writes regularly for a range of publications, including the "L.A. Times, El Tiempo in Madrid, The Nation," and "Granta," to name a few. Many of Dorfman's books are available in Spanish from Seven Stories' Spanish-language imprint, Siete Cuentos Editorial. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.
