Abstract

El informe presenta datos inéditos que recuperan la evolución interanual de los delitos de homicidios, tentativas de homicidios, lesiones y robos entre los años 2009-2012. Como se evidencia en la introducción, uno de los primeros obstáculos a la hora de construir un diagnóstico de mediano y largo plazo sobre la violencia y los delitos en la provincia de Buenos Aires se vincula a la inexistencia de datos comparables y confiables que permitan realizar afirmaciones tajantes sobre el aumento o disminución de ciertos fenómenos. La novedad de esta publicación es que avanza en la distribución territorial de esta secuencia histórica (2009-2012) discriminando por Departamento Judicial, calculando las tasas según las distintas poblaciones y analizando la evolución a lo largo de los cuatro años consignados. Trabajaremos con los datos sobre homicidios y muertes violentas, en los cuales la distancia entre delito ocurrido y delito denunciado es muy pequeña. También, haremos exploraciones sobre delitos poco trabajados en otras investigaciones como las tentativas de homicidio, lesiones y robos con armas de fuego, que serán utilizados como indicadores para explorar la territorialización de la violencia interpersonal y alumbrar nuevas hipótesis de trabajo. Algunas de las conclusiones centrales identifican el descenso de los homicidios dolosos entre 2008 y 2012 (último año relevado). Mientras la tasa de homicidios dolosos cada 100 mil habitantes en 2008 fue de 9,6 homicidios, en 2012 fue 7,6 homicidios. Este descenso se debe enmarcar en una línea descendente de mayor alcance que si bien no podemos contrastar con la misma certeza para los años previos al 2008, iniciaría en 2003, tras los picos de homicidios dolosos que se verificaron entre 2001 y 2002. Como contrapartida, se evidencia el aumento de algunos delitos que hemos seleccionado como indicadores de la violencia interpersonal. Por último, se destaca la gran desigualdad entre los indicadores de violencia que afectan a las distintas jurisdicciones territoriales en que se divide la provincia.

Abstract

The role of the Congress is essential to any study of American government and politics. It would be impossible to gain a complete understanding of the American system of government without an appreciation of the nature and workings of this essential body. This is an introductory text aimed at undergraduates studying American politics and American society. It looks at the workings of the United States Congress, and uses the Republican period of ascendancy, which lasted from 1994 until 2000, as an example of how the Congress works in practice. The book illustrates the basic principles of Congress using contemporary and recent examples, while also drawing attention to the changes that took place in the 1990s. The period of Republican control is absent from many of the standard texts and is of considerable academic interest for a number of reasons, not least the 1994 election, the budget deadlock in 1995 and the Clinton impeachment scandal of 1999. The book traces the origin and development of the United States Congress, before looking in depth at the role of representatives and senators, the committee system, parties in Congress, and the relationship between Congress and the President, the media and interest groups. This will be the first textbook on the market that enables students to incorporate these developments into their work and into their thinking about contemporary American politics and society.

Abstract

The main reason why Latin America is a cultural diverse region is because of the indigenous peoples who inhabit it. That is why indigenous peoples' interests on their cultural property have to be taken into account when this matter is to be legally regulated in Latin American countries. In order to ascertain whether that has occurred, the book explores relevant legal instruments at the international and regional levels and compares national norms in some Latin American countries, particularly those concerning ownership. It concludes that recognition of indigenous interests in Latin American law on cultural property is still a pending task.

Abstract

Drawing upon an extensive range of archival and secondary sources from both sides of the Atlantic, this pioneering book provides the first full-length study of the controversial personal relationship between Prime Minister Harold Wilson and President Lyndon B. Johnson, often drawing on material that has only recently been opened to the public. Whilst Wilson was a firm supporter of the idea of a 'special relationship' between Britain and the United States and wanted to use his dealings with the White House to strengthen his credentials as a world statesman, Johnson held the British leader in low esteem and disdained the idea of a 'special' Anglo-American relationship. Difficulties stemming from the Vietnam War, British economic weakness and the UK's abrogation of its world power status exacerbated the strain between Wilson and Johnson, leading to what was probably the most fractious and troubled of all the relationships between British prime ministers and American presidents. The work also explores the more general nature of Anglo-American bonds in this period, arguing that the impact of the substantive issues, along with the limitations of the relationship between Wilson and Johnson, led to a serious weakening of the high-level ties between Britain and the United States. This book will be of vital interest to students of British and US foreign policy, of Anglo-American relations, and summit diplomacy, as well as to those with an interest in Harold Wilson and Lyndon Johnson themselves.

Abstract

This is a good time to reflect on opportunities and challenges for Australia in Latin America. Impressive economic growth and opportunities for trade and investment have made Latin America a dynamic area for Australia and the Asia Pacific region. A growing Latin American population, Australia’s attractiveness to Latin American students, a fascination with the cultural vibrancy of the Americas and an awareness of Latin America’s increasingly independent stance in politics and economic diplomacy, have all contributed to raising the region’s profile. This collection of essays provides the first substantial introduction to Australia’s evolving engagement with Latin America, identifying current trends and opportunities, and making suggestions about how relationships in trade, investment, foreign aid, education, culture and the media could be strengthened.
