Books Building Bicentennials
This is the first book that displays the objectives, preparations and activities commemorating the Latin American bicentennial of independence in its continental dimension.
A diversity of voices from nine countries exposes the rich spectrum of proposals and expectations made at different scales.
This is a book of multiple voices. Its 32 authors think about the sense, the challenge and options, memories and expectations that the bicentennial presents. They are voices of historians, architects, philosophers, scientists, professors, public dignitaries, social workers, politicians and young people. They cover current problems, diverse aspects of the memory of the past and project that memory onto the bicentennial horizon. The 23 Argentine authors, two Latin American, three European, one Hindi, and three American, cross their internal views with those from the outside, offering a texture of difference and not of the homogeneity.
