Santiago Perez Triana (1858-1916) - Colombian Man of Letters and Crusader for Hemispheric Unity (Hardcover): Jane M. Rausch Santiago Perez Triana (1858-1916) - Colombian Man of Letters and Crusader for Hemispheric Unity (Hardcover)

Santiago Perez Triana was a Colombian author, journalist, and diplomat who became one of the leading proponents of pan-American unity and crusaders against European intervention in the western hemisphere. He led a dramatic globetrotting life and became one of Latin America's best-known public figures, but his work has been largely overlooked in recent years, until the arrival of this biography. The son of radical Colombian president Santiago Perez Manosalbas, Perez Triana was forced into exile after a scandal involving his business ventures, fleeing over the Andes and down three rivers to the Atlantic and a new life in the United States, London, and Madrid. His marriage to the daughter of a millionaire associate of John D. Rockefeller freed him from financial worries and permitted him to focus on journalistic endeavors, including the founding of the influential journal Hispania. Perez Triana seized on the movement for hemispheric unity with his support for the anti-interventionist Drago Doctrine at the 1907 Hague Convention and his spell-binding orations at the Pan-American Financial Conference in 1915. Before his death, he became a forceful advocate for the Allied cause in the First World War, cementing his status as one of Latin America's most powerful voices on the world stage.

"An important contribution to Colombian historical writing. Rausch's works have helped orient and stimulate a school of historical writing in Colombia."--James D. Henderson, author of Modernization in Colombia: The Laureano G mez Years, 1889-1965 "With this fourth and final volume, Rausch completes her authoritative cycle of studies charting the history of Colombia's Llanos Orientales. Her work can take its rightful place alongside that of Orlando Fals Borda's innovative four-volume exploration of the Colombian Atlantic coast, Historia Doble de la Costa."--W. John Green, author of Gaitanismo, Left Liberalism, and Popular Mobilization in Colombia Prior to the 1980s, Colombia's Llanos Orientales was a vast plain of tropical grassland east of the Andes. Populated mainly by indigenous people, the area was considered "primitive" until exploitable petroleum deposits were discovered. The finding transformed the Llanos into the fastest growing region in the country. In this volume, Jane Rausch surveys sixty years of history in the Llanos, between 1946 and 2010, combining perspective gained by her first-hand experiences with archival research. She examines the Colombian government's Llanos policies and the political, economic, and social changes they have brought about. Rausch's large-scale historical survey of the region ultimately reveals that as a South American frontier, the Llanos is politically and economically critical to both Colombia's present and its future.

R1,752 Discovery Miles 17 520 Out of stock

In Where Cultures Meet, editors Weber and Rausch have collected twenty essays that explore how the frontier experience has helped create Latin American national identities and institutions. Using 'frontier' to mean more than 'border, ' Weber and Rausch regard frontiers as the geographic zones of interaction between distinct cultures. Each essay in the volume illuminates the recipro-cal influences of the 'pioneer' culture and the 'frontier' culture, as they contend with each other and their physical environment.

The transformative power of frontiers gives them special interest for historians and anthropologists. Delving into the frontier experience below the Rio Grande, Where Cultures Meet is an important collection for anyone seeking to understand fully Latin American history and culture.

From Frontier Town to Metropolis - A History of Villavicencio, Colombia, since 1842 (Hardcover): Jane M. Rausch From Frontier Town to Metropolis - A History of Villavicencio, Colombia, since 1842 (Hardcover)
Jane M. Rausch
R1,855 Discovery Miles 18 550 Out of stock

Although Villavicencio, the capital of the Department of Meta, is located just 120 miles from Bogota, the mountains of the eastern Andean Cordillera lies between the two cities. As a result, after its founding in 1842, Villavicencio remained an isolated frontier outpost for more than one hundred years even though "El Portal de la Llanura" ("the Gateway to the Plains") provided the principal access to Colombia's tropical plains (Llanos), a vast grassy region cut by tributaries connecting with the Meta and Guaviare rivers and eventually the Orinoco. Nineteenth- and twentieth-century governments in Bogota regarded the Llanos as the "Eastern Lands of Promise," underestimating the geographic and climatic obstacles to their development. From Frontier Town to Metropolis recounts the history of the town and explains how, by the twenty-first century, it became a thriving metropolis with a population nearing three hundred thousand. During the next sixty years, it became the principal urban center of the Llanos despite the continual presence of militant guerrillas, paramilitaries, and drug traffickers. This book examines the developments that transformed Villavicencio, drawing on data collected about the Colombian Llanos over a period of forty years. Noted researcher Jane M. Rausch offers a detailed treatment of the development of Villavicencio and the Department of Meta as a microcosm of Colombia's eastern frontier. The book incorporates a wealth of research published in Spanish by Colombian scholars in the last twenty years and is the first history of Villavicencio available to English-speaking scholars. It considers the important topics of when a frontier is no longer a frontier and the role played by frontier images in contemporary nationalism."

Colombia and World War I - The Experience of a Neutral Latin American Nation during the Great War and Its Aftermath, 1914-1921... Colombia and World War I - The Experience of a Neutral Latin American Nation during the Great War and Its Aftermath, 1914-1921 (Hardcover)
Jane M. Rausch
R1,317 Discovery Miles 13 170 Out of stock

In the horrific conflict of 1914-1918 known first as "The Great War" and later as World War I, Latin American nations were peripheral players. Only after the U.S. entered the fighting in 1917 did eight of the twenty republics declare war. Five others broke diplomatic relations with Germany, while seven maintained strict neutrality. These diplomatic stances, even those of the two actual belligerents-Brazil and Cuba-did little to tip the balance of victory in favor of the allies, and perhaps that explains why historians have paid scant attention to events in Latin America related to the war. Nevertheless, it is still remarkable that Percy Alvin Martin's classic account, Latin American and the War, first published in 1925, remains the standard text on the topic. This book attempts to redress this gap by taking a fresh look at developments between 1914 and 1921 in one of the neutral nations-Colombia. This period, which coincides with the presidency of Jose Vicente Concha (1914-1918) and his successor, Marco Fidel Suarez (1918-1921), is filled with momentous developments not only in foreign policy, when Colombian diplomats pressured by German, British and U.S. propaganda struggled to maintain strict neutrality, but also on the domestic scene as the newly installed Conservative regime faced political and economic crises that sparked numerous and violent protests. Rausch's examination of the administrations of Concha and Suarez supports Martin's assertion that even those countries neutral in the Great War were not immune from its effects.
