En el vientre de la yihad: El testimonio de las madres de yihadistas

by Alexandra Gil

Este libro presenta un conjunto de testimonios de familias que han vivido la radicalización y huida de sus hijos o hijas a territorios controlados por el autodenominado Estado Islámico. En 2015, alrededor de cinco mil ciudadanos europeos habían abandonado sus países para unirse al Estado Islámico. Muchas de sus familias han quedado rotas, víctimas de esa circunstancia pero vistas como culpables. En este libro conmovedor, Alexandra Gil se asoma a nueve casos: un padre, una hermana y siete madres de yihadistas abren en estas páginas las puertas de sus casas y las de sus historias. Michelle y Françoise son hoy abuelas de varios «bebés del califato» a los que solo han visto en fotografías. Omar visita cada quince días a su hijo en prisión, un yihadista retornado del Jabhat Al Nusra. Samira recuerda palabra por palabra la carta de despedida que le dejó su hija antes de huir a Siria, mientras Nathalie busca despejar todos los interrogantes sobre la radicalización de su único hijo y su muerte en territorio iraquí. Estas familias llevan una vida que no se parece en nada a la que tenían años atrás: teléfonos pinchados, interminables interrogatorios, la mirada acusadora del prójimo y sobre todo un miedo irrefrenable a encender la televisión después de un atentado y reconocer al culpable.

La hija de Stalin: La extraordinaria y tumultuosa vida de Svetlana Alliluyeva

by Rosemary Sullivan

Con acceso a los archivos del KGB, la CIA, y de los distintos gobiernos soviéticos, Rosemary Sullivan recompone las piezas de la increíble vida de Svetlana Alliluyeva, la hija mayor de Stalin, en una magistral biografía. Nacida durante los primeros años de la Unión Soviética, Svetlana creció dentro de los muros del Kremlin. Los altos cargos del Partido Comunista la protegieron del exterior ocultándole la hambruna y las purgas que arrasaban su país. Tras la muerte de su padre, y a medida que iba descubriendo la magnitud de la crueldad del régimen, Svetlana rompió su silencio y en 1967 conmocionó al mundo huyendo a Estados Unidos. Profunda y ambiciosa, esta biografía pinta el insólito retrato de una mujer atormentada, utilizada como un peón en la Guerra Fría y, que a pesar de sus repetidos intentos por desvincularse del pasado, se vio siempre atrapada por la alargada sombra de su padre. Sullivan logra explorar un personaje complejo en un aún más complejo contexto sin nunca perder de vista la poderosa historia humana, y reabriendo a lo largo del proceso, las puertas cerradas de la brutal Historia del corto siglo XX que tanto nos fascina.

Combinatorial Image Analysis

by Reneta P. Barneva Valentin E. Brimkov

It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you to the proceedings of the 12th International Workshop on Combinatorial Image Analysis (IWCIA 2008) held in Bu?alo, NY, April 7-9, 2008. Image analysis is a scienti?c discipline providing theoretical foundations and methods for solving problems that appear in various areas of human practice, as diverseas medicine, robotics, defense, andsecurity. As a rule, the processeddata are discrete; thus, the "discrete," or "combinatorial"approachto image analysis appears to be a natural one and therefore its importance is increasing. In fact, combinatorial image analysis often provides various advantages (in terms of - ciency and accuracy) over the more traditional approaches based on continuous models requiring numeric computation. The IWCIA workshop series provides a forum for researchers throughout the world to present cutting-edge results in combinatorial image analysis, to discuss recent advances in this research ?eld, and to promote interaction with researchersfromothercountries. Infact, IWCIA2008retainedandevenenriched the international spirit of these workshops, that had successful prior meetings in Paris (France) 1991, Ube (Japan) 1992, Washington DC (USA) 1994, Lyon (France) 1995, Hiroshima (Japan) 1997, Madras (India) 1999, Caen (France) 2000, Philadelphia (USA) 2001, Palermo (Italy) 2003, Auckland (New Zealand) 2004, and Berlin (Germany) 2006.

Los inmortales: El encuentro Batlle-Saravia

by Hugo Burel

En el espacio abierto y despejado de la adolescencia o en la misteriosa oscuridad de la delirante transición que precede a la muerte, se sucede un diálogo que llega a erizar la piel de quienes admiran y respetan a dos personalidades de la política de Uruguay. Con prosa impregnada de poesía, Hugo Burel consigue, en la ficción, lo que nunca ocurrió en la realidad: el encuentro de dos grandes de nuestra historia, como sin duda lo fueron José Batlle y Ordóñez y Aparicio Saravia. En el espacio abierto y despejado de la adolescencia o en la misteriosa oscuridad de la delirante transición que precede a la muerte, se sucede un diálogo que llega a erizar la piel de quienes admiran y respetan a esas dos personalidades. Un libro fascinante que incita a la lectura sin descanso, y nos induce a replantearnos una multiplicidad de cuestiones que la historia aún no ha resuelto. Transformados en personajes de ficción, el gaucho de El Cordobés y el estadista se enfrentan, agonizan y discuten en el transcurso de esta narración de honda espesura dramática. Saravia, desde su legendario perfil de idealista revolucionario y Batlle, en la rigurosa defensa, honesta y racional, de sus convicciones más profundas, desarrollan un contrapunto que indaga sobre esa obstinada renuencia a encontrarse y verse las caras que signó su actuación pública.

Around Elmont and Rosedale

by Bill Florio

Once portions of a farming community called Fosters Meadow, Elmont and Rosedale have changed dramatically since Thomas and Christopher Foster first farmed the land in the 1600s. In the 1850s, immigrant German farmers settled in the area abutting Elmont Road, Brookville Boulevard, Linden Boulevard, and Merrick Boulevard. The remnants of that German farming community continued into the early 20th century, despite encroaching suburbanization, renamed streets, and subdivided farmland, along with Irish, Italian, and Jewish immigrants changing the area’s ethnic makeup. This new suburban area covering the southern corners of Nassau and Queens Counties became home to landmarks like the Argo Theatre, Rottkamp Farm, Schmitt Farm, Laurelton Parkway, Gouz Dairy, Sapienza Bakery, St. John’s Methodist Church, and world-famous Belmont Park. Today, Elmont, Rosedale, and the rest of the former Fosters Meadow are home to a large population of Caribbean immigrants, bringing a new culture to the area and, with it, new landmarks and new ideas.

LGBT Salt Lake

by J. Seth Anderson

Salt Lake City, located along Utah’s majestic Wasatch Mountains, has historically been a cradle of peculiar people. Before Western culture developed terms for lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) identities, diverse communities who recognized their differences from mainstream America made Salt Lake their home. By the early 1970s, a discernible “gay community” had emerged in Salt Lake City, laying the groundwork for future activism and institutions. In the 1970s, publications like Gayzette, the Salt Lick, and the Open Door documented the nascent movement. In the 1980s, amidst devastation from the HIV/AIDS epidemic, marginalized communities valiantly worked to fight the disease and support each other. By the 1990s, LGBT Utahns had gained traction legally and politically with the formation of the first gay straight alliance at East High School and the election of the first openly gay person to the Utah legislature in 1998. The transgender community became more visible in the new century, and by 2008, Utah began to play a prominent role in the battle over marriage equality.

Route 6 in Pennsylvania

by Kevin J. Patrick Elizabeth Mercer Roseman Curtis C. Roseman

Pennsylvania’s mid-20th-century Route 6 brought together appealing natural environments, historical events, and cultural landscapes. The eastern length of the route crosses an area featuring rolling mountains and tranquil valleys dotted by farms and towns. To the west, Route 6 traverses a more level landscape that also includes lakes. This book presents the 370-mile scenic drive as a destination in itself. It covers the secluded setting of northern Pennsylvania where Route 6 and its towns have experienced minimal changes associated with larger metropolitan regions and interstate highways. As a result, the mid-20th-century landscapes of Route 6 have lingered a little longer. The authors give the reader a peek of a past not entirely swept away.

Sapulpa

by Donald L. Diehl for the Sapulpa Historical Society

Sapulpa is named after a young Creek Indian who came to the area around 1840 and opened a trading post near Pole Cat Creek. Sapulpa’s arrival in Indian Territory was independent of the famed “Trail of Tears,” a term used for the federal government’s forced removal of Creek (Muskogee) and other tribes from their southern homelands in the 1830s. The area that would become the Creek Nation is a small part of the land acquired by the United States after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. At one time, Spain, England, and France each laid claim to Oklahoma. Trails, rails, and oil; bricks, clay, and glass; and streetcars, highways, and automobiles are all parts of the historic community of Sapulpa. The diverse people who came to the area—Indians, cowboys, railroaders, settlers, loggers, farmers, wildcatters, oilmen, businessmen, manufacturers, workers, and dreamers—recorded the town’s story, as captured in photographs, beginning more than a century ago. Sapulpa was and remains a crossroads in more ways than one.

Hidden History of Civil War Savannah

by Michael L. Jordan Foreword By Morekis

Union general William T. Sherman cemented Savannah’s most notable Civil War connection when he ended his “March to the Sea” there in December 1864. However, more fascinating stories from the era lurk behind the city’s ancient, moss-draped live oaks. A full-scale naval battle raged between ironclad warships just offshore. More than seven thousand prisoners were confined in the area surrounding Forsyth Park. And on March 21, 1861, the present-day Savannah Theatre was the site of one of the most inflammatory and controversial speeches of the entire war. Noted local filmmaker and author Michael Jordan delves deep into this fabled city’s Civil War past.
