"It was far too large for a newborn. Its head was covered with coarse black hair, and its body was red and blotchy. And on each hand there were six perfectly formed fingers. The baby peered down at her with cruel, intelligent eyes, and when it smiled she saw two rows of tiny teeth." So this was how the god had answered my prayers, "Myrfel thought. This child he had given her was to be the instrument of her revenge." The second book in the Invisible War series, "The Day of the Others" chronicles the in-between years of the Creation account and the Flood. When Tubal Cain discovers metalworking, human society begins to change, creating new opportunities for the ranks of demons who masquerade as humankind's gods to prey on humanity's growing depravity. Through the stories of Tubal Cain, Enoch, and other fascinating characters, "The Day of the Others" describes the societal advances that lead to the evolution of a unique civilization marked by material progress and spiritual decline. But when demons mate with human women and produce giants known as Nephilim, angels intervene, and the whole world rushes toward a cataclysmic judgment that will change the face of the planet.

After the conquest of Mexico, colonial authorities attempted to enforce Christian beliefs among indigenous peoples—a project they envisioned as spiritual warfare. The Invisible War assesses this immense but dislocated project by examining all known efforts in Central Mexico to obliterate native devotions of Mesoamerican origin between the 1530s and the late eighteenth century. The author's innovative interpretation of these efforts is punctuated by three events: the creation of an Inquisition tribunal in Mexico in 1571; the native rebellion of Tehuantepec in 1660; and the emergence of eerily modern strategies for isolating idolaters, teaching Spanish to natives, and obtaining medical proof of sorcery from the 1720s onwards. Rather than depicting native devotions solely from the viewpoint of their colonial codifiers, this book rescues indigenous perspectives on their own beliefs. This is achieved by an analysis of previously unknown or rare ritual texts that circulated in secrecy in Nahua and Zapotec communities through an astute appropriation of European literacy. Tavárez contends that native responses gave rise to a colonial archipelago of faith in which local cosmologies merged insights from Mesoamerican and European beliefs. In the end, idolatry eradication inspired distinct reactions: while Nahua responses focused on epistemological dissent against Christianity, Zapotec strategies privileged confrontations in defense of native cosmologies.

„Einer der bedeutendsten Autoren der amerikanischen Nachkriegsliteratur.“ Paul Ingendaay, F.A.Z. Ralph Ellison ist neben Toni Morrison und James Baldwin eine der großen Stimmen des afroamerikanischen Romans der Gegenwart. Sein Meisterwerk zeugt von künstlerischer Kraft und ist hochaktuell – als schonungslose Abrechnung mit den alltäglichen rassistischen Ideologien und Verhaltensweisen und als Lob auf das gewachsene Selbstbewusstsein der noch immer um ihre selbstverständlichen Rechte Kämpfenden: Der namenlose Ich-Erzähler verliert sein Stipendium, weil er einem Förderer des von Weißen eingerichteten Südstaaten-Colleges für Schwarze nicht die gewünschte Kulisse, sondern die Realität der Farbigen vor Augen führt. Er muss sein Glück dort suchen, wo es Arbeit gibt, und landet in Harlem, einem brodelnden Hexenkessel, inmitten von schwarzem Glamour und Blue Notes, Swing und Spirituals, politischen Aufwieglern, gerissenen Gaunern und verlorenen Spinnern.

The Invisible War attempts to redress a fundamental misconception lodged in the heart of American historiography: the notion that there was no significant collective resistance to or struggle against slavery by captured Africans who had been forcibly immigrated to the United States from the mother continent. Such a lacuna may stem from the extent to which then-contemporary records sought to disguise the true nature of what are presently called the Seminole Wars--as just another set of Indian wars, rather than a struggle of African resistance to slavery, conducted in alliance with Indian resistance to ongoing colonial encroachment. While academic and public understanding celebrate the heroes of the Underground Railroad for facilitating the movement of Africans towards freedom in the north, there is virtual silence surrounding the more logical, more sizeable, and more politically significant movement of self-liberated Africans southward to free territories in what is now Georgia and Florida. From these southern territories, communities of free Africans were to wage a constant struggle against the slavery-based colonies to the north. Both by force of arms and by example, they represented an ongoing threat to the existence of Anglo-Carolinian-institutionalized slavery. In witness whereof, a scant 40 years after the termination of the Third Seminole War, African fighters would ally with the northern armies during the Civil War in order to finally bring the enslavement system to an end. While any government at war might censor and reinterpret conflicts in order to quell public fears and solicit support, why has subsequent American scholarship failed to challenge the records, emphases and interpretations of the so-called Seminole Wars? Why hasn't it replaced the old "master-slave" lexicon governing ethnic relations--which reflected Anglo-Carolinian efforts during the enslavement period to codify and legalize the institutions of slavery--with more objective contemporary terminology? This book challenges contemporary scholars to free the history of African Americans from the lexicon of enslavement, and to set the record of their struggle straight.
