1Title:  Waves of decolonization: discourses of race and hemispheric citizenship in Cuba, Mexico, and the United States   
 Creator:  Luis-Brown, David, 1967- 
 Publication:  Duke University Press, Durham, 2008. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (p. [301]-327) and index. "In Waves of Decolonization, David Luis-Brown reveals how between the 1880s and the 1930s, writer-activists in Cuba, Mexico, and the United States developed narratives and theories of decolonization, of full freedom and equality in the shadow of empire. They did so decades before the decolonization of Africa and Asia in the mid-twentieth century. Analyzing the work of nationalist leaders, novelists, and social scientists, including W.E.B. Du Bois, José Marti, Claude McKay, Luis-Brown brings together an array of thinkers who linked local struggles against racial oppression and imperialism to similar struggles in other nations. With discourses and practices of hemispheric citizenship, writers in the Americas broadened conventional conceptions of rights to redress their loss under the expanding United States empire. In focusing on the transnational production of the national in the wake of U.S. imperialism, Luis-Brown emphasizes the need for expanding the linguistic and national boundaries of U.S. American culture and history."--Book cover.

3Title:  Decolonizing the map: cartography from colony to nation   
 Creator:  Akerman, James R. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "Almost universally, newly independent states seek to affirm their independence and identity by making the production of new maps and atlases a top priority. For formerly colonized peoples, however, this process neither begins nor ends with independence, and it is rarely straightforward. Mapping their own land is fraught with a fresh set of issues: how to define and administer their territories, develop their national identity, establish their role in the community of nations, and more. The contributors explore this complicated relationship between mapping and decolonization while engaging with recent theoretical debates about the nature of decolonization itself. These essays, originally delivered as the 2010 'Kenneth Nebenzahl Jr. Lectures in the History of Cartography' at the Newberry Library, encompass more than two centuries and three continents - Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Ranging from the late eighteenth century through the mid-twentieth, contributors study topics from mapping and national identity in late colonial Mexico to the enduring complications created by the partition of British India and the racialized organization of space in apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa. A vital contribution to studies of both colonization and cartography, this is the first book to systematically and comprehensively examine the engagement of mapping in the long and clearly unfinished parallel processes of decolonization and nation building in the modern world."--Dust jacket.

8Title:  Mapping the end of empire: American and British strategic visions in the postwar world   
 Creator:  Husain, Aiyaz, 1977- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 279-351) and index. By the end of World War II, strategists in Washington and London looked ahead to a new era in which the United States shouldered global responsibilities and Britain concentrated its regional interests more narrowly. The two powers also viewed the Muslim world through very different lenses. This book reveals how Anglo-American perceptions of geography shaped postcolonial futures from the Middle East to South Asia.0Aiyaz Husain shows that American and British postwar strategy drew on popular notions of geography as well as academic and military knowledge. Once codified in maps and memoranda, these perspectives became foundations of foreign policy. In South Asia, American officials envisioned an independent Pakistan blocking Soviet influence, an objective that outweighed other considerations in the contested Kashmir region. Shoring up Pakistan meshed perfectly with British hopes for a quiescent Indian subcontinent once partition became inevitable. But serious differences with Britain arose over America's support for the new state of Israel. Viewing the Mediterranean as a European lake of sorts, U.S. officials--even in parts of the State Department--linked Palestine with Europe, deeming it a perfectly logical destination for Jewish refugees. But British strategists feared that the installation of a Jewish state in Palestine could incite Muslim ire from one corner of the Islamic world to the other.

9Title:  Mexican-origin foods, foodways, and social movements: decolonial perspectives   
 Creator:  Peña, Devon Gerardo | Calvo, Luz, 1960- | McFarland, Pancho | Valle, Gabriel R. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 415-439) and index. "This collection of new essays offers groundbreaking perspectives on the ways that food and foodways serve as an element of decolonization in Mexican-origin communities. The writers here take us from multigenerational acequia farmers, who trace their ancestry to Indigenous families in place well before the Oñate Entrada of 1598, to tomorrow's transborder travelers who will be negotiating entry into the United States. Throughout, we witness the shifting mosaic of Mexican-origin foods and foodways from Chiapas to Alaska. Global food systems are also considered from a critical agroecological perspective, which takes into account the ways colonialism affects native biocultural diversity, ecosystem resilience, and equality across species and generations. Mexican-Origin Foods, Foodways, and Social Movements is a major contribution to the understanding of the ways that Mexican-origin peoples have resisted and transformed food systems through daily lived acts of producing and sharing food, knowledge, and seeds in both place-based and displaced communities. It will animate scholarship on global food studies for years to come."--Page 4 of cover.
