about this item

García de la Torre shows how Cuban revolutionary and writer Martí (1853-95) drew from ideologies around the world in the fight for Cuban independence from Spain, arguing that the example casts doubt on the assumption that nationalism in the late 19th century was always ethnocentric and exclusionary. He covers transmitting civic values to out future citizens: Martí's global histories for children, the Hindu inspirations of a freedom fighter's spiritual and world outlook, Martí and the divine nation-state, Martí and the African diaspora, and transmitting proper government: Ulysses S. Grant and the US Civil War in Martí's imagination. Distributed in the US by Longleaf Services, Inc. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
