La persecución no es una característica original de ninguna religión; pero es una característica extraordinariamente notable en todas las religiones legales o religiones establecidas por ley. (Thomas Paine, Los derechos del hombre) El camino hacia la edad moderna de armonía y aceptación cultural es una de las hazañas más hermosas del progreso humano, pero habiendo dicho esto, hubo un tiempo en que la simple duda de la existencia de una figura religiosa era no solo un crimen punible legalmente, sino que muy bien podía costarle a una persona la vida. Este era el crimen de herejía. Esta clase de persecución religiosa ha estado presente por miles de años, y los cristianos fueron con frecuencia sus víctimas, pero cuando la Iglesia Católica comenzó su rápida difusión a través de Europa durante la edad media, las cosas cambiaron. En 1184, el Papa Lucio III promulgó una bula papal que iba a desatar una larga tradición de caza de brujas, lo que dio como resultado el comienzo de la época de la Inquisición. Por un giro de los acontecimientos, los perseguidos se volvieron perseguidores. A partir de entonces, la Iglesia Católica se atribuyó el poder de tener tribunales, o cortes judiciales, en su intento de exterminar la herejía de una vez por todas. Se cree que estas inquisiciones, que habrían de plagar a Europa por siglos, vieron a cientos de miles de personas perseguidas por creencias que iban contra la Iglesia. Una escandalosa porción de ellos serían brutalmente torturados y condenados a muerte. Ninguna de ellas podría compararse con la que comenzó en el siglo XV - la Inquisición española. La infame inquisición, objeto de muchos documentales, películas, y otros medios de la cultura pop, es una era oscura recordada por su opresión, bárbaras torturas y tiranía religiosa. Sirviendo como telón de fondo de todo esto hubo una terrible enfermedad, un hombre identificado con Satanás y el tumultuoso surgimiento y caída de uno de los más 1. Spanish.

Una novela de Arturo Pérez-Reverte. La heroica aventura de quienes se atrevieron a cambiar el mundo con libros. "En tiempos de oscuridad siempre hubo hombres buenos que lucharon por traer las luces y el progreso. Y otros que procuraron impedirlo." Arturo Pérez-Reverte A finales del siglo XVIII, cuando dos miembros de la Real Academia Española, el bibliotecario don Hermógenes Molina y el almirante don Pedro Zárate, recibieron de sus compañeros el encargo de viajar a París para conseguir de forma casi clandestina los 28 volúmenes de la Encyclopédie de D'Alembert y Diderot, que estaba prohibida en España, nadie podía sospechar que los dos académicos iban a enfrentarse a una peligrosa sucesión de intrigas, a un viaje de incertidumbres y sobresaltos que los llevaría, por caminos infestados de bandoleros e incómodas ventas y posadas, desde el Madrid ilustrado de Carlos III al París de los cafés, los salones, las tertulias filosóficas, la vida libertina y las agitaciones políticas en vísperas de la Revolución francesa.Basada en hechos y personajes reales, documentada con extremo rigor, conmovedora y fascinante en cada página, Hombres buenos narra la heroica aventura de quienes, orientados por las luces de la Razón, quisieron cambiar el mundo con libros cuando el futuro arrinconaba las viejas ideas y el ansia de libertad hacía tambalearse tronos y mundos establecidos. La crítica ha dicho... "Excelente novela, quizá la que mejor le retrate como escritor e intelectual." J. M. Pozuelo Yvancos, ABC Cultural "Una aventura de libros, ideas y amistad, con buenos y malos, una búsqueda, un itinerario jalonado por posadas, lances y emboscadas y teñido de peligros." Jacinto Antón, Babelia "No me impedirán proclamar el disfrute que me ha producido ser parte en esta fiesta también como lector." Darío Villanueva, Babelia "La varita mágica de Pérez-Reverte se extiende no solo a la construcción habilísima de los personaje 1. Spanish.

Ecotourism in Brunei Darussalam
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This research considers the benefits and disbenefits of ecotourism development in Brunei Darussalam, derived from the economic, social and cultural impacts, as described and experienced by Iban and Dusun communities in selected villages at Ulu Temburong National Park and Merimbun Heritage Park, the influence of ecotourism on their traditional resource use, and their involvement in the planning and decision-making process. The impacts of tourism on local people have been studied in developing and developed countries, but the impacts of ecotourism development in national parks have not been commonly researched in a holistic approach, such that they often lack the positive aspects, notably for the socio-cultural dimension. The researcher develops a conceptual model of sustainability in ecotourism that fulfils some of the specifications established by Budowski (1976) and Valentine (1997), which establishes the symbiotic relationship of local communities in ecotourism represented by the benefits that local communities can acquire.

Many of the world's 7000 documented language groups are endangered due to falling rates of language and culture transmission from one generation to the next. Some endangered language groups have been the focus of efforts to reverse patterns of linguistic and cultural loss, with variable success. This book presents case studies of endangered language groups from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Pacific (including Bisu, Iban, Iquito, Quechua, Wawa, Yi and sign languages) and of their associated knowledge and belief systems, to highlight the importance of preserving linguistic and cultural diversity. Issues of identity and pride emerge within the book, alongside discussion of language and culture policy.

'Theoretically rich, yet written in clear and effective prose, this book brings the best of ethnography--narrative explication, deep cultural context, and informant-generated knowledge--to the study of social media. In the best ethnographic tradition, it presents complexity rather than reductively erasing place, people, and politics. It is long overdue and should be widely read as an important contribution from media anthropology to the wider field of digital media research.' · Mark Pedelty, University of Minnesota 'This is a very strong contribution to media anthropology [that] will quickly stimulate a spate of innovative research on the Internet because it provides conceptual tools that open new avenues of study. The key idea, 'the field of residential affairs,' is very rich, and I particularly like the way Postill connects this new area of anthropology (internet studies) to the classic works of the Manchester School.' · Andrew Arno, University of Hawai'i '[A] very interesting case study of the intersection of online activities and offline contexts in relation to political organization and community activism in suburban Malaysia.' · Leighton C. Peterson, Miami University Internet activism is playing a crucial role in the democratic reform happening across many parts of Southeast Asia. Focusing on Subang Jaya, a suburb of Kuala Lumpur, this study offers an in-depth examination of the workings of the Internet at the local level. In fact, Subang Jaya is regarded as Malaysia's electronic governance laboratory. The author explores its field of residential affairs, a digitally mediated social field in which residents, civil servants, politicians, online journalists and other social agents struggle over how the locality is to be governed at the dawn of the 'Information Era'. Drawing on the field theories of both Pierre Bourdieu and the Manchester School of political anthropology, this study challenges the unquestioned predominance of 'network' and 'community' as the two key sociation concepts in contemporary Internet studies. The analysis extends field theory in four new directions, namely the complex articulations between personal networking and social fields, the uneven diffusion and circulation of new field technologies and contents, intra- and inter-field political crises, and the emergence of new forms of residential sociality. John Postill is Senior Lecturer in Media at Sheffield Hallam University and a Fellow of the Digital Anthropology Programme, University College London (UCL). He holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from UCL and is the author of Media and Nation Building (Berghahn 2006), based on fieldwork among the Iban of Borneo, and coeditor of Theorising Media and Practice (Berghahn 2010).
