Bolivia: La Patria está cautiva (Spanish Edition)

by Carlos Sánchez Berzaín

BOLIVIA, LA PATRIA ESTA CAUTIVA es la historia documentada de la resistencia y lucha desde el exilio contra la dictadurade Evo Morales en Bolivia. Contiene la demostración de la suplantación de la República de Bolivia por un Estado en el modelo castrochavista que impone en Bolivia un régimen que la ha convertido en narcoestado y que la conduce a la peor de sus crisis en el camino de Cuba, Venezuela y Nicaragua.
“En el marco de la realidad de las Américas, la propuesta del autor para sacar a Bolivia de las dictaduras del castrochavismo es de las mas claras que se conocen, y por ella avanza ahora mismo la construcción del futuro de los bolivianos, en el que Carlos Sánchez Berzain es actor vital”.
Embajador Armando Valladares

What Sex Is a Republican?: Stories from the Front Lines in American Politics and How You Can Change the Way Things Are

by Terri McCormick

What Sex Is a Republican? takes a look at the political game from behind the curtain with one intention; to call on each of us to serve in our local, state and federal governments. The principles of republican government have been lost on the money changers in our state and national capitols.

There is only one way to change that — We the people must take responsibility for what our government has become while we weren’t looking. As he left Liberty Hall upon signing the Constitution of the United States, Benjamin Franklin was asked, “What kind of government did you give us?” Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it!”

Let’s keep it together, shall we?

What Sex Is a Republican? presents a case for courage by a lawmaker who is uniquely qualified to do so. The author, Terri McCormick is a former legislator and congressional candidate who is a woman. According to her friends and foes alike, “Terri has been battle tested in state and federal politics.” An advocate for political and government reform and change, former Representative Terri McCormick has proven time and again that “ideas” trump “career politicians” and their trysts and turns.

60 (Magis 460) (Spanish Edition)

by José Morales

Para este número de Magis se concibió una edición especial, con motivo de las celebraciones por los 60 años del ITESO, que presenta a los lectores de la revista las historias de 60 iniciativas y redes que, en temas como combate a la pobreza, cuidado del medio ambiente, procuración de justicia, migración, defensa de los derechos humanos y educación de calidad para todas y todos, trabajan por restaurar el tejido social. Se trata de un conjunto de historias que tienen en común el hecho de que las protagonizan mujeres y homrbes cuyo trabajo consiste en buscar los mejores modos de vincularnos, como ciudadanos, como organizaciones, como redes. En este número tiene especial relevancia el modo en que el ITESO alienta muchas de estas iniciativas y les infunde el sentido de compromiso social que caracteriza al estilo ignaciano de trabajar y al espíritu de las instituciones educativas confiadas a la Compañía de Jesús.
