Описание: The charismatic former President of Mexico offers a clear and candid perspective on the state of world affairs When Vicente Fox swept into office in 2000, he
broke the dictatorial one-party rule that had strangled Mexico for over seventy years. A native son of Mexico, grandson of immigrants from the United States and Spain, Fox worked his
way from ranch hand and truck driver to the youngest CEO in the history of Coca-Cola. His political rise from precinct worker to world leader was equally swift.
Vicente Fox steered Mexicos fragile young democracy through turbulent times, ushering in six years of economic stability and reform in health care, education, and housing, with
increased freedom of the press. His presidency also reduced poverty and tackled corruption. Vicente Fox embodies the American Dream in its broadest sense as a vision of the New
World, as well as the story of Mexico.
Elected as a political outsider with a message of honesty, change, and hope, he is truly a world hero of democracy. This vivid book
interweaves his inspiring personal story with his bold ideas for the future of the planet. For the first time, President Fox reveals the ups and downs of his close but rocky relationships
with world leaders from President George W.
Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair to Fidel Castro, Vladimir Putin and Hugo Chvez. In "Revolution of Hope," President Fox
outlines a new vision of hope for the future of the Americas. He speaks out forcefully on hot global topics like immigration, the war in Iraq, racism, globalization, the role of the United
Nations, free trade, religion, gender equity, indigenous rights and the moral imperative to heal the globaldivide between rich and poor nations.
From the man who brought true
democracy to Mexico, "Revolution of Hope" is a personal story of triumph and a political vision for the future.

Описание: This volume is the first English-language collection exclusively dedicated to the study of genre in relation to Spanish cinema. Providing a variety of critical perspectives, the collection gives the reader a thorough account of the relationship between Spanish cinema and genre, drawing on case studies of several of the most remarkable Spanish films in recent years. The book analyses the significant changes in the aesthetics, production and reception of Spanish film from 1990 onwards. It brings together European and North American scholars to establish a critical dialogue on the topics under discussion, while providing multiple perspectives on the concepts of national cinemas and genre theory. In recent years film scholarship has attempted to negotiate the tension between the nationally specific and the internationally ubiquitous, discussing how globalisation has influenced film making and surrounding cultural practice. These broader social concerns have prompted scholars to emphasise a redefinition of national cinemas beyond strict national boundaries and to pay attention to the transnational character of any national site of film production and reception. This collection provides a thorough investigation of contemporary Spanish cinema within a transnational framework, by positing cinematic genres as the meeting spaces between a variety of diverse forces that necessarily operate within but also across territorial spaces. Paying close attention to the specifics of the Spanish cinematic and social panorama, the essays investigate the transnational economic, cultural and aesthetic forces at play in shaping Spanish film genres today.
