Lucia Arugellová: Dos pasos adelante, un paso atrás: el levantamiento de 2019 como parte de la lucha por los derechos de los pueblos indígenas en Ecuador
Hoy en día el movimiento indígena ecuatoriano es heterogéneo, capaz de representar intereses de los campesinos indígenas de las tierras altas, así como proteger las culturas autóctonas de las tierras bajas. A través de su alto nivel de organización, donde las organizaciones locales se agrupan en federaciones y confederaciones, llegó a formar uno de los movimientos indígenas más poderosos de América Latina.

Březinová, K.: A Different Minority? U.S. Latinos between Kennedy and Trump Praha: Libri, 2020. ISBN:
The fast-growing Latino population in the United States of America raises a host of vital issues for American politics and society in the 21st century. What forms of “belonging” will Latinos embrace? How do they influence the American mainstream? To what extent do some forms of nativism reemerge in the US in response to Latinos’ presence?
This book is a nuanced portrait of Hispanics in the United States in the period between the administrations of John F. Kennedy and Donald Trump (1961-2021). It first lays out the basic facts of who they are, where they come from and where they reside in the US, exploring the extent to which the (quite varied) characteristics of Latinos define them as one group. It then connects these facts to the political and cultural realities of immigration, citizenship, political participation and the cultural engagements of this – in many ways – different minority in the United States.
Based on an extensive fieldwork as well as on surveys of secondary sources in English and Spanish, the author invites readers to follow this vibrant American community with intense transnational ties, and to imagine ways in which US Hispanics expand the American mainstream and make it more diverse in the 21st century.
