Grassroots Politics and Oil Culture in Venezuela: The Revolutionary Petro-State

by Iselin Åsedotter Strønen

This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book presents an ethnographic study of how grassroots activism in Venezuela during the Chávez presidency can be understood in relation to the country's history as a petro-state. Taking the contested relationship between the popular sectors and the Venezuelan state as a point of departure, Iselin Åsedotter Strønen explores how notions such as class, race, state, bureaucracy, popular politics, capitalism, neoliberalism, consumption, oil wealth, and corruption gained salience in the Bolivarian process. A central argument is that the Bolivarian process was an attempt to challenge the practices, ideas, and values inherited from Venezuela's historical development as an oil-producing state. Drawing on rich ethnographic material ...

Oswald's Odyssey: Two Hours in Dallas

by Andrew Culver

This is a comprehensive, in-depth timeline of Lee Harvey Oswald's fateful journey from the Texas School Book Depository to the Texas Theater where he was arrested on November 22nd, 1963.

The chronology uses a wide variety of sources to evaluate what witnesses saw, and when they made their statements. The reader follows Oswald, minute by minute, from 12:00, when he was an anonymous warehouse employee, to 2:00, when he was arrested and his fate was sealed.

The timeline reveals how the Warren Commission, and future researchers, picked and chose evidence to create a scenario that would convict Oswald after his death - without a trial. But this thoroughly researched "micro-history" reveals that the official story about the Kennedy assassination is nothing more than a...

But does that compromise the truth of what really happened?Propaganda has always played a crucial role in turning tides and swaying opinion, and in few places is that more pronounced than in the wholesale slaughter of the native peoples in both North and South America. When some of the people of European descent could not get what they wanted from the Native Americans, they would demonize or dehumanize them so that the American people would clamor for government intervention. This is, for example, evident by analyzing Andrew Jackson's speech to Congress on Indian removal where he would refer to the Nat...

Archaeological Perspectives on Warfare on the Great Plains

by Andrew Clark and Douglas Bamforth

The Great Plains has been central to academic and popular visions of Native American warfare, largely because the region’s well-documented violence was so central to the expansion of Euroamerican settlement. However, social violence has deep roots on the Plains beyond this post-Contact perception, and these roots have not been systematically examined through archaeology before. War was part, and perhaps an important part, of the process of ethnogenesis that helped to define tribal societies in the region, and it affected many other aspects of human lives there. In Archaeological Perspectives on Warfare on the Great Plains, anthropologists who study sites across the Plains critically examine regional themes of warfare from pre-Contact and post-Contact periods and assess how war shape...
