Crimes against the State, Crimes against Persons: Detective Fiction in Cuba and Mexico

The transplanted, inherently sleek detective style serves as a particularly potent lens for exposing the fissures and divergences of modernity in post-1968 Mexico and innovative Cuba. Combining in-depth serious analyses with the theoretical insights of present literary and cultural concept and Latin American postmodern reports, Crimes opposed to the kingdom, Crimes opposed to people exhibits how the Cuban novela negra examines the Revolution via an incisive chronicle of lifestyles lower than a decaying regime, and the way the Mexican neopoliciaco finds the oppressive politics of modernization and globalization in Latin the US.

Are Indian girls robust mom goddesses, or household handmaidens trailing at the back of males in literacy, wages, possibilities, and rights?

Example text

At the age of 55 his mind having been purified, he died leaving no physical trace. 'Gos then relates, rather obscurely, that the guardian deity Rdo-rje legs-pa caused a hail storm in Khams and sent 500 camel loads as tax, which turned into grain. PT ja f. 108 has the version that the god turned a hail storm into grain which poured down a chimney through a hat placed there until it filled the lower rooms thus providing funds for the temple; and that a bka'-gtsigs giving Myang authority over the region was inscribed on a stone pillar.

PT ja f. 76 tells of a cong that was taken from Mgrin-bzang of Brag-mar when it was destroyed in the anti-Buddhist reaction at the end of the reign of Khri Lde-gtsug-brtsan. It was first kept at Mchims-phu and then sent to Bsam-yas where it became the dge-rgyas bell. The Dge-rgyas gtsug-/ag-khang is the name of the temple at Bsam-yas attributed to the 'Bro queen and among its 32 THE BELL AT BSAM-YAS furnishings PT ja f. 98b mentions a bell for making music, rot mar cong. It is impossible that the bell now at Bsam-yas could have been made thirty years or more before the foundation of the monastery for the inscription is part of the casting; but it might have been hung originally in the Dge-rgyas temple.

On each side of the entrance is a tall stone pillar inscribed with a record of privileges granted at different times to Ban-de Myang Ting-nge-'dzin who founded the temple and who, as seen from the inscriptions, was the guardian of Khri Lde-srong-brtsan when young and later, as a minister of state, was instrumental in establishing him on the throne. When Khri Lde-srong-brtsan, following the example of his father, took an oath to maintain the Buddhist religion Ban-de Myang Ting-'dzin was one of the principal witnesses next to the great minister Ban-de Bran-ka Dpal-gyi yon-tan.
