In the last decades of the twentieth century, thousands of Mayas were expelled, often violently, from their homes in San Juan Chamula and other highland communities in Chiapas, Mexico, by fellow Mayas allied with the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). State and federal authorities generally turned a blind eye to these human rights abuses, downplaying them as local conflicts over religious conversion and defense of cultural traditions. The expelled have organized themselves to fight not only for religious rights, but also for political and economic justice based on a broad understanding of human rights. This pioneering ethnography tells the intertwined stories of the new communities formed by the Mayan exiles and their ongoing efforts to define and defend their human rights. Focusing on a community of Mayan Catholics, the book describes the process by which the progressive Diocese of San Cristóbal and Bishop Samuel Ruiz García became powerful allies for indigenous people in the promotion and defense of human rights. Drawing on the words and insights of displaced Mayas she interviewed throughout the 1990s, Christine Kovic reveals how the exiles have created new communities and lifeways based on a shared sense of faith (even between Catholics and Protestants) and their own concept of human rights and dignity. She also uncovers the underlying political and economic factors that drove the expulsions and shows how the Mayas who were expelled for not being "traditional" enough are in fact basing their new communities on traditional values of duty and reciprocity.

This book aims to show the value but also the difficulties encountered in the application of 'insider knowledge' in service user research. Mental health service users in research considers ways of 'doing research' which bring multiple understandings together effectively, and explains the sociological use of autobiography and its relevance. It examines how our identity shapes the knowledge we produce, and asks why voices which challenge contemporary beliefs about health and the role of treatment are often silenced. An imbalance of power and opportunity for service users, and the stigmatising nature of services, are considered as human rights issues.Most of the contributors to the book are service users/survivors as well as academics. Their fields of expertise include LGB issues, racial tensions, and recovering from the shame and stigma of alcoholism. They stress the importance of research approaches which involve mutualities of respect and understanding within the worlds of researcher, clinician and service user/survivor.

Most recent books about Chiapas, Mexico, focus on political conflicts and the indigenous movement for human rights at the macro level. None has explored those conflicts and struggles in-depth through an individual woman's life story. The Journey of a Tzotzil-Maya Woman of Chiapas, Mexico now offers that perspective in one woman's own words. Anthropologist Christine Eber met "Antonia" in 1986 and has followed her life's journey ever since. In this book, they recount Antonia's life story and also reflect on challenges and rewards they have experienced in working together, offering insight into the role of friendship in anthropological research, as well as into the transnational movement of solidarity with the indigenous people of Chiapas that began with the Zapatista uprising. Antonia was born in 1962 in San Pedro Chenalhó, a Tzotzil-Maya township in highland Chiapas. Her story begins with memories of childhood and progresses to young adulthood, when Antonia began working with women in her community to form weaving cooperatives while also becoming involved in the Word of God, the progressive Catholic movement known elsewhere as Liberation Theology. In 1994, as a wife and mother of six children, she joined a support base for the Zapatista Army of National Liberation. Recounting her experiences in these three interwoven movements, Antonia offers a vivid and nuanced picture of working for social justice while trying to remain true to her people's traditions.

English summary: Following years of preparation, the author of the standard work The History of Christianity in Latin America (1978) here presents a perfectly new concept of his seminal textbook, which unfolds in a compact format the sum of a lifetime of research in this field.Hans-Juergen Prien's extensive teaching and research as Chair for Iberian and Latin American History (established by Richard Konetzke) has put him in a position to demonstrate the embeddedness of the history of the church in Latin America - as far as this is feasible within the framework of the Monographs on the History of the Church - in the main political, social, and economic developments of this subcontinent.The comprehensive list of sources and the bibliography attest to the fact that by now it has become almost impossible for a single scholar to acquire a firm command of the entire history of the denominationally extremely diverse Christianity of an entire subcontinent, spanning five hundred years. German description: Der Autor des Standardwerkes aDie Geschichte des Christentums in Lateinamerika (1978) legt nach langjahrigen Vorarbeiten in vollig neuer Konzeption ein Lehrbuch zum Christentum in Lateinamerika vor, das in kurzer Form die Summe seines Forscherlebens auf diesem Gebiet darstellt. Priens Lehrtatigkeit auf dem von Richard Konetzke begruendeten Lehrstuhl fuer Iberische und Lateinamerikanische Geschichte hat seinen Uberblick ueber die Politische Geschichte, Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte Lateinamerikas wesentlich erweitert, so dass er die Einbettung der Kirchengeschichte in diese Gebiete immer wieder zu verdeutlichen versucht, soweit das im Rahmen der Reihe aKirchengeschichte in Einzeldarstellungen moglich ist. Das umfangreiche Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis zeigt, dass es heute fuer einen einzelnen Forscher kaum noch moglich ist, die konfessionell stark zerklueftete Christentumsgeschichte eines ganzen Subkontinents ueber fuenf Jahrhunderte hinweg zu ueberblicken.
