Constructing Democratic Governance in Latin America JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

After more than a century of assorted dictatorships and innumerable fiscal crises, the majority of Latin America's states are governed today by constitutional democratic regimes. Some analysts and scholars argue that Latin America weathered the 2008 fiscal crisis much better than the United States. How did this happen? Jorge I. Dominguez and Michael Shifter asked area specialists to examine the electoral and governance factors that shed light on this transformation and the region's prospects. They gather their findings in the fourth edition of "Constructing Democratic Governance in Latin America". This new edition is completely updated. Part I is thematic, covering issues of media, constitutionalism, the commodities boom, and fiscal management vis-a-vis governance. Part II focuses on eight important countries in the region-Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela. Already widely used in courses, "Constructing Democratic Governance in Latin America" will continue to interest students of Latin American politics, democratization studies, and comparative politics as well as policymakers.

Excerpt from Enlarged Practice-Book in English Composition This is not a new book, but an enlargement of the Practice-Book, first published in 1906. Part I, a collection of tasks in simple composition, remains precisely as it was. Words and Sentences, published a year ago as a separate volume, has been incorporated as Part II. It provides exercises in the use of the dictionary, in pronunciation, spelling, and grammar. Part III, containing much new material and some old, is made up of a large number of exercises designed to acquaint the pupil with the essentials of rhetoric. Among the new chapters in this section will be found two devoted to the paragraph and to figures of speech. Part IV presents an elementary survey of versification. The key-note is still to be found in the words simplicity and practice. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Przy sercu Twoim. Kantata dla NMP - Praca zbiorowa

Książki & Multimedia > Muzyka

Opis - Kompozycja, składająca się z 14 utworów, została napisana dla uczczenia drugiej rocznicy śmierci Jana Pawła II. Proste teksty ks. Mateusza Jeża są hołdem oddanym Matce Bożej. Muzyka Zbigniewa Małkowicza łączy w sobie wiele stylów: smyczki brzmią klasycznie, melodie wpadają w ucho jak popowe przeboje, śpiew chóru zahacza o gospel, a bas wybija chwilami jazzowo-funkowe rytmy. Wszystko razem jest mieszanką przyjemną dla ucha, a dawka liryzmu zawarta w utworach sprzyja modlitewnemu skupieniu.Do udziału w nagraniu płyty Przy sercu Twoim zespół LUMEN zaprosił kilku gości specjalnych. Należy do nich m.in. Dariusz Tokarzewski z grupy Vox, który wystąpił w świetnym duecie z młodziutką Aleksandrą Małkowicz. Pociesz mnie to jedna z najładniejszych piosenek na tym krążku. Ale dobrych kompozycji jest tu więcej. Wśród tych bardziej dynamicznych wyróżnia się niewątpliwie utwór Królowo nasza, aniołów Pani, budzący delikatne skojarzenia z twórczością TGD. Wśród spokojniejszych fragmentów zwraca uwagę utwór tytułowy i Kołysanka, wprowadzająca nas w klimat Bożego Narodzenia.Różnorodność stylistyczna tej płyty zespołu LUMEN sprawia, że każdy znajdzie tu coś dla siebie.

Kryzys wieloraki: związany z pracą, z brakiem natchnienia na nowy artykuł, z finansami, z uczuciami, z życiem w ogóle... Za ostatnie pieniądze kupuje alkohol i papierosy, nie ma siły wstać z łóżka i wziąć się w garść, a na dodatek jego była żona utrudnia mu kontakty z synem i męczy o zaległe alimenty. Wszystko się zmienia, gdy któregoś razu w nocnym pubie spotyka córkę swojej starej sąsiadki, Dorotę. Młoda kobieta i jej narzeczony tej samej nocy zostają brutalnie zamordowani w niejasnych okolicznościach. Zaintrygowany Emil postanawia pomóc policji w śledztwie.

SOA Principles of Service Design PEARSON

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"This book could be described as an encyclopedia of service design-Erl leaves nothing to chance. Indispensable." -Steve Birkel, Chief IT Technical Architect, Intel Corp. "An absolute pleasure to read...the best SOA book I've read. A book I would recommend to all of my colleagues; it provides much insight to the topics often overlooked by most books in this genre...the visuals were fantastic." -Brandon Bohling, SOA Architecture and Strategy, Intel Corporation "This book is a milestone in SOA literature. For the first time we are provided with a practical guide on defining service characteristics and service design principles for SOA from a vendor-agnostic viewpoint. It's a great reference for SOA discovery, adoptions, and implementation projects." -Canyang Kevin Liu, Principal Enterprise Architect, SAP Americas, Inc. "I liked this book. It contains extremely important material for those who need to design services." -Farzin Yashar, IBM SOA Advanced Technologies "This book does a great job laying out benefits, key ideas and design principles behind successfully adopting service-oriented computing. At the same time, the book openly addresses challenges, risks and trade-offs that are in the way of adopting SOA in the real-world today. It moves away from ivory-tower views of service orientation, but still lays out a strong vision for SOA and outlines the changes necessary to realize the full potential." -Christoph Schittko, Senior Architect, Microsoft "I recommend this book to any SOA practitioner who wishes to empower themselves in making service design real...gives readers the 360 view into service design [and] gives SOA practitioners the depth and understanding needed into the principles of SOA to assist in the design of a mature and successful SOA program." -Stephen G. Bennett, Americas SOA Practice Lead, BEA Systems "SOA projects are most successful when they are based on a solid technical foundation. Well accepted and established design principles are part of this foundation. This book takes a very structured approach at defining the core design principles for SOA, thus allowing the reader to immediately applying them to a project. Each principle is formally introduced and explained, and examples are given for how to apply it to a real design problem. A 'must read' for any architect, designer or developer of service oriented solutions". -Andre Tost, Senior Technical Staff Member, IBM Software Group "There are few references for SOA that give you the nuts and bolts and this one is at the top of the list. Well written and valuable as a reference book to any SOA practitioner." -Dr. Mohamad Afshar, Director of Product Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Corporation "A thorough examination of the considerations of service design. Both seasoned SOA practitioners and those endeavoring to realize services can benefit from reading this book." -Bill Draven, Enterprise Architect, Intel Corporation "There are very few who understand SOA like Thomas Erl does! The principle centric description of service orientation from Thomas canonizes the underpinnings of this important paradigm shift in creating agile and reusable software capabilities. The principles, so eloquently explained, leave little room for any ambiguity attached to the greater purpose of SOA. Most organizations today are creating services in a bottoms-up approach, realizing composition and reuse organically. The time is ripe for a book like this that prepares architects for a principle centric approach to SOA." -Hanu Kommalapati, Architect, Microsoft Corporation "Outstanding SOA literature uniquely focused on the fundamental services design with thorough and in-depth study on all practical aspects from design principles to methodologies. This book provides a systematic approach for SOA adoption essential for both IT management and professionals." -Robin Chen, PhD, Google, Inc. "Thomas Erl's books are always densely filled with information that's well structured. This book is especially insightful for Enterprise Architects because it provide s great context and practical examples. Part 1 of the book alone is worth getting the book for." -Markus Zirn, Senior Director, Product Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Corporation "A very clear discussion of the subject matter. Provides a good structure that facilitates understanding and readily highlights key points." -Kareem Yusuf, Director of SOA Strategy and Planning, IBM Software Group "I am very impressed. Comprehensive. Educative. This book helped me to step back and look at the SOA principles from broader perspective. I'd say this is a must-read book for SOA stakeholders." -Radovan Janecek, Director R&D, SOA Center, Hewlett-Packard "Very valuable guidance for understanding and applying SOA service design principles with concrete examples. A must read for the practitioner of SOA service design." -Umit Yalcinalp, PhD, Standards Architect, SAP "This book really does an excellent job of explaining the principles underpinning the value of SOA...Erl goes to great length to explain and give examples of each of the 8 principles that will significantly increase the readers ability to drive an SOA service design that benefits both business and IT." -Robert Laird, IT Architect, IBM EAI/SOA Advanced Technologies Group "This book strikes a healthy balance between theory and practice. It is a perfect complement to the SOA series by the author." -Prakash Narayan, Sun Microsystems "If you are going to be designing, developing, or implementing SOA, this is a must have book." -Jason "AJ" Comfort Sr., Booz Allen Hamilton "An excellent book for anyone who wants to understand service-orientation and the principles involved in designing services...a clear, concise and articulate exploration of the eight design principles involved in analyzing, designing, implementing, and maintaining services. .." -Anish Karmarkar, Oracle Corporation "Very well written, succinct, and easy to understand." -Raj Balasubramanian, IBM Software Group "Acomprehensive exploration of the issues of service design which has the potential to become the definitive work in this area." -James Pasley, Chief Technology Officer, Cape Clear Software "An excellent addition to any SOA library; it covers a wide range of issues in enough detail to be a valuable asset to anyone considering designing or using SOA based technologies." -Mark Little, Director of Standards, Red Hat "This book communicates complex concepts in a clear and concise manner. Examples and illustrations are used very effectively." -Darryl Hogan, Senior Architect, Microsoft "A work of genius...Offers the most comprehensive and thorough explanation on the principles of service design and what it means to be 'service oriented.' "Erl's treatment of the complex world of service oriented architecture is pragmatic, inclusive of real world situations and offers readers ways to communicate these ideas through illustrations and well formulated processes." -David Michalowicz, MITRE Corporation "This is the book for the large organization trying to rationalize its IT assets and establish an agile platform for the future. By highlighting risk and rewards, Thomas Erl brings clarity to how Service Orientation can be applied to ensure a responsive IT organization. This book finally brings software engineering principles to address the real world development challenges being faced. To effectively serve the business, let alone embrace SOA, everyone involved should be familiar with the concepts investigated here. Thomas Erl thoroughly clarifies the nuances and defines the practice of service design. We expect that this will become a classic text in software engineering, corporate training and colleges." -Cory Isaacson, President, Rogue Wave Software and Ravi Palepu, SOA Author and Speaker "Thomas Erl does a great job...an easy read." -Michael H. Sor, Booz Allen Hamilton "...a must read for SOA Architects to develop a firm foundation and understanding of the principles (and trade-offs) that make up a good SOA service. After reading this book, it finally 'clicked' as to why a properly designed SOA system is different (and better) than a system based on previous enterprise architectures." -Fred Ingham, Platinum Solutions Inc. "Lays a tremendous foundation for business and technical workers to come to common terms and expectations...incredibly enlightening to see the details associated with achieving the SOA vision." -Wayne P. Ariola, Vice President of Strategy, Parasoft "[Erl does] and excellent job of addressing the breadth of [his] audience to present to those new to SOA and weaved in enough detail to assist those who are already actively involved in SOA development." -R. Perry Smith, Application Program Manager, EDS/OnStar "It is easy to miss the big picture of what SOA means for the design of larger scale systems amidst the details of WS technologies. Erl helps provide a broader perspective, surveying the landscape from a design standpoint." -Jim Clune, Chief Architect, Parasoft "Lays a firm foundation for the underlying principles of good service design. Cuts through the hype and provides a cogent resource for improving architectural judgment on SOA projects." -Jim Murphy, Vice President of Product Management, Mindreef, Inc. "The first book to concisely, gradually and comprehensively explain how to apply SOA principles into enterprise-level software design. It is an excellent book." -Robin G. Qiu, Ph.D., Division of Engineering and Information Science, Pennsylvania State University "I really think that this is a very useful book that a lot of people really need out there in the industry." -Dr. Arnaud Simon, Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat "...indispensable companion to designing and implementing a service-oriented architecture. It condenses all information necessary to design services and is the most relevant source I know if in the field." "[This book is] not only helpful, but fundamental to successfully designing an SOA." -Phillipp Offermann, Research Analyst, University of Berlin "Service-Oriented Architecture is an important topic in IT today. Its vast scope could span an organization's enterprise. Designing it properly is a major undertaking. This book provides timely, expert and comprehensive discussions on the principles of service design. Thomas has a keen sense in identifying the subtle points of various subjects and explains them in an easy-to-understand way. The book is a valuable resource for IT professionals working in SOA." -Peter H. Chang, PhD, Associate Professor of Information Systems, Lawrence Technological University The Definitive Guide to Service Engineering The key to succeeding with service-oriented architecture (SOA) is in comprehending the meaning and significance of its most fundamental building block: the service. It is through an understanding of service design that truly "service-oriented" solution logic can be created in support of achieving the strategic goals associated with SOA and service-oriented computing. Bestselling SOA author Thomas Erl guides you through a comprehensive, insightful, and visually rich exploration of the service-orientation design paradigm, revealing exactly how services should and should not be designed for real-world SOA. This book's in-depth coverage includes * Over 240 full-color illustrations. * A concise introduction to SOA and service-oriented computing concepts and benefits. * A thorough exploration of the service-orientation design paradigm as represented by eight specific design principles. * A comparison of service-oriented and object-oriented concepts and principles and a clear definition of what qualifies as "service-oriented" logic. * Detailed coverage of four different forms of service-related design granularity. * An exhaustive examination of service contracts, with an emphasis on standardization, abstraction, and the utilization of WS-Policy, XML Schema, and WSDL definitions. * A comprehensive study of positive and negative service-related coupling types with an emphasis on the requirements to attaining a suitable level of loose coupling. * An inside look into how commercial design approaches are incorporated to achieve truly agnostic and reusable service logic. * Techniques for maximizing service reliability, scalability, and performance by instilling high levels of autonomy and emphasizing stateless design. * Approaches for positioning services as highly discoverable and interpretable enterprise resources. * Unprecedented coverage of how to design services for participation in complex compositions. * The definition of concrete links between each design principle and the strategic goals and benefits of SOA and service-oriented computing. * Numerous cross-references to key design patterns documented separately in SOA: Design Patterns. www.prenhallprofessional.com www.soabooks.com www.soasystems.com Preface xxv Chapter 1: Introduction 1 Chapter 2: Case Study Background 19 Part I: Fundamentals Chapter 3: Service-Oriented Computing and SOA 25 Chapter 4: Service-Orientation 67 Chapter 5: Understanding Design Principles 103 Part II: Design Principles Chapter 6: Service Contracts (Standardization and Design) 125 Chapter 7: Service Coupling (Intra-Service and Consumer Dependencies) 163 Chapter 8: Service Abstraction (Information Hiding and Meta Abstraction Types) 211 Chapter 9: Service Reusability (Commercial and Agnostic Design) 253 Chapter 10: Service Autonomy (Processing Boundaries and Control) 293 Chapter 11: Service Statelessness (State Management Deferral and Stateless Design) 325 Chapter 12: Service Discoverability (Interpretability and Communication) 361 Chapter 13: Service Composability (Composition Member Design and Complex Compositions) 387 Part III: Supplemental Chapter 14: Service-Orientation and Object-Orientation: A Comparison of Principles and Concepts 445 Chapter 15: Supporting Practices 477 Chapter 16: Mapping Service-Orientation Principles to Strategic Goals 497 Appendices Appendix A: Case Study Conclusion 513 Appendix B: Process Descriptions 517 Appendix C: Principles and Patterns Cross-Reference 529 Additional Resources 533 About the Author 535 About the Photos 537 Index 539

Ponadczasowy portret majestatycznego monarchy. Kuszący blask szlachetnego kruszcu. Historia, która pozostawiła ślad na złotej monecie kolekcjonerskiej... Korona cesarska Złota moneta kolekcjonerska o nominale 100 Euro - Korona Arcyksięcia - Hołd - to 2 spośród 5 monet z nowej serii o ciekawej tematyce historycznej - "Korony Habsburgów". Nowa moneta z serii "Korony Habsburgów" na awersie przedstawia umieszczoną na poduszce z aksamitu piękną koronę austriackiego arcyksięcia. Oryginalny złoty diadem z ośmioma szczytami zwieńczony jest dwoma perłowymi łukami z dużym szafirem i krzyżem w centrum. Rewers monety ukazuje procesję, podczas której oddany zostaje hołd władcy. Orszak podąża z wiedeńskiej Katedry Świętego Szczepana do Hofburga, czyli pałacu władców Austrii, poczynając od Rudolfa I aż do Karola I, czyli od XIII wieku do roku 1918. Zabytkowa katedra została zbudowana w latach 1230 - 1263 w stylu późnoromańskim, a następnie ją rozbudowywano od XIV do początku XVI wieku. Wówczas to katedra otrzymała obecną gotycką formę. Jest to jedna z największych świątyń europejskich: jej długość wynosi 107, a szerokość 34 metry. Obecnie Katedra Świętego Szczepana Męczennika w Wiedniu to najważniejsza i jedna z najstarszych świątyń w stolicy Austrii, duma i jeden z symboli Wiednia. Wznosząca się pośrodku Placu Świętego Szczepana w sercu najstarszej części miasta - katedra znana jest z licznych przedstawień w dziejach malarstwa i grafiki. To także ważny ośrodek kultu maryjnego. W południowej nawie znajduje się bowiem cudowny obraz Matki Boskiej z Pócs. Europejska historia uwieczniona na wieki w szlachetnym, iście królewskim kruszcu - złocie wysokiej próby, wciąż zyskującym na wartości! Bogata w detale, misternie wykonana złota moneta kolekcjonerska z Austrii uwiecznia jeden z najważniejszych symboli władzy w historii - koronę Arcyksięcia Austrii. Ten wyjątkowy skarb historyczny został wyryty z ogromną precyzją i kunsztem mincerskim na unikalnym, złotym krążku o średnicy 30 mm. Blasku złotej monecie dodaje stempel lustrzany. Kolejna moneta z tej ciekawej serii historycznej - Korona Świętego Stefana - króla Węgier - zostanie wyemitowana w listopadzie 2010 roku. Poprzednią monetą była złota moneta uwieczniająca wizerunek i koronę cesarza Ottona I (936-972). Złote monety kolekcjonerskie z serii "Korony Habsburgów" zaprojektowano i wybito w Austrian Mint - renomowanej mennicy o ponad 800-letniej tradycji numizmatycznej. Dodatkowo zaprojektowano wykładaną aksamitem w królewskim kolorze i przeznaczoną specjalnie do przechowywania całej serii 5 złotych monet ekskluzywną kasetę, która widoczna jest po prawej stronie na ostatnim zdjęciu, licząc od góry. Kaseta zbiorcza nie wchodzi w skład tego produktu, można ją zakupić osobno. W skład tej ciekawej, historycznej serii wchodzić będą złote monety kolekcjonerskie: Korona Świętego Cesarstwa Rzymskiego - Otton I Wielki - emisja: 5.11.2008 r.

Korona Cesarza Austrii - emisja: 14.11.2012 r. Korona cesarza Ottona I 100 Euro - Crown of an Archduke - proof from new series "Die Kronen der Habsburger" Date of issue: November 4, 2009, Fine: Au 986, weight: 16 gr., diameter: 30 mm, mintage: max. 30,000 pcs, quality: proof The obverse of the coin shows the archducal crown resting on a Baroque cushion. The crown consists of a red velvet cap attacked to a diadem of eight peaks, topped by two pearl-studded arches. In the centre is a large sapphire symbolising the world, surmounted by a cross. The reverse depicts part of the procession itself as three high dignitaries carry the crown, orb and sceptre along the street known as the "Graben" in Vienna. Soldiers and drummers line the processional route with crowds of citizens behind them. The title "Archduke" is an Austrian speciality. Duke Rudolf IV. invented the title of "Archduke" in the spurious document known as the Privilegium maius. Austria was not a member of the electoral college of the Holy Roman Empire and Rudolph was determined to assert his rank as equal to that of those Electors - hence this forgery. The position was regularised however and the title Archduke was borne by the male members of the House of Habsburg.

Read all about It! China. An English reader for students of Chinese studies Uniwersytet Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu

ANGIELSKI

The words "Read all about it!" are intended to encourage people to buy a newspaper with some sensational news. Obviously you are not going to read all about China in this reader (and, alas!, you will not be reading the latest gossip...). Instead I promise a kaleidoscope of interesting texts about various aspects of life in modern China, and at the same time a chance to improve your English skills - almost painlessly. If you are a student of Chinese culture (or other Oriental Studies, especially where a course of Chinese constitutes part of the curriculum) and you'd like to learn more English, this book is for you! You can use it not only in the classroom but also if you want to work on your own. Your level should ideally be advanced or at least upper-intermediate. A few texts might be quite difficult, proficiency-level - these have been asterisked. With a few exceptions, the texts are graded from easiest to most difficult. Please remember that the exercises included in this book are not meant to test your knowledge of English but rather to help you learn new words by making you - constantly refer to the original text, - recycle the new words and grammatical structures, - recognise the freshly learnt structures in new contexts. Therefore some of the matching exercises in the COMPREHENSION section might seem quite easy. Others, however, might require explaining a new word by another one that you do not know either; do not feel intimidated by this! It is usually possible to guess the meaning of a word by a process of elimination, especially when you have the context to help you. Atrakcyjnie przygotowany podręcznik dla studentów japonistyki/sinologii, włączający do nauki języka angielskiego elementy współczesnej kultury japońskiej/chińskiej. Zalety tego oryginalnego podręcznika to wzorowa kompozycja czytanek, ćwiczeń (w tym ćwiczeń typu cloze test) oraz interesujaca tematyka tekstów. Każdy z rozdziałów zawiera tekst dotyczący jakiegoś aspektu kultury japońskiej/chińskiej, a następnie ćwiczenia związane z rozumieniem tekstu oraz poszerzające słownictwo. Ćwiczenia nawiązujące do tekstu dobrane są tak, by poprzez aktywną pracę z nowymi słówkami umożliwić studentowi samodzielne odgadnięcie znaczenia nowego wyrazu, a także ułatwić jego utrwalenie. Każdą jednostkę kończy dowcip, maksyma lub ciekawostka dotycząca kultury japońskiej/chińskiej. Podręcznik może być wykorzystywany - w całości lub we fragmentach - na lektoratach języka angielskiego dla studentów orientalistyki, ale dzięki kluczowi do ćwiczeń student może też pracować z książką samodzielnie.

Deeds of the Franks and Other Jerusalem-bound Pilgrims Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This new translation offers a faithful yet accessible English-language rendering of the twelfth-century Gesta Francorum et aliorum Hierosolomitanorum, the earliest known Latin account of the First Crusade. Although an anonymous work, it has become the exemplar for all later histories and retellings of the First Crusade. As such, it is filled with vivid descriptions of the hardships suffered by the crusaders, with deeds of personal heroism, with courtly intrigues, with betrayal and cowardice, and with a relentless faith that would see the attainment of the desired goal: the capture of Jerusalem by the crusaders in 1095. There is a great deal of mystery surrounding this anonymous account, especially in regard to its authorship; place, date, and purpose of composition; narrative methodology; and point of view. It is also a sweeping tale that swiftly moves from the first preaching of the crusade by Pope Urban II, to the ragtag and ultimately doomed effort of the popular People's Crusade, and then the more disciplined and concerted campaign by the French and Norman nobility that led to the conquest of the Holy Land by the crusaders. Based on the latest scholarly research, including a substantive introduction that explores the questions surrounding the Gesta and its historical context, this definitive translation will bring the First Crusade and its era to life for all readers.

From Puerto Rico To Philadelphia Temple University Press,U.S.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"We were poor but we had everything we needed," reminisces Dona Epifania. Nonetheless, when a man she knew told her about a job in Philadelphia, she grasped the opportunity to leave Coamas. "He went to Puerto Rico and told me there were beans to cook. I came here and cooked for fourteen workers." In San Lorenzo, Dona Carmen and her husband made the same decision: 'We didn't want to, nobody wanted to leave...There wasn't any alternative.' Don Florencio recalls that in Salinas work had gotten scarce, 'especially for the youth, the young men...The farmworker that was used to cutting cane, already the sugar cane was disappearing,' and government licensing regulations made fishing 'more difficult for the poor.' Puerto Rican migration to the mainland following World War II took place for a range of reasons: globalization of the economy, the colonial relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico, state policies, changes in regional and local economies, social networks, and, not least, the decisions made by individual immigrants. In this wide-ranging book, Carmen Whalen weaves them all into a tapestry of Puerto Rican immigration to Philadelphia. Like African Americans and Mexicans, Puerto Ricans were recruited for low-wage jobs, only to confront racial discrimination as well as economic restructuring. As Whalen shows, they were part of that wave of newcomers who come from areas in the Caribbean, Latin America, and Asia characterized by a heavy U.S. military and economic presence, especially export processing zones, looking for a new life in depressed urban environments already populated by earlier labor migrants. But Puerto Rican immigration was also unique, especially in its regional and gender dimensions. Many migrants came as part of contract labor programs shaped by competing agendas. By the 1990s, economic conditions, government policies, and racial ideologies had transformed Puerto Rican labor migrants into what has been called 'the other underclass'. Professor Whalen analyzes this continuation of 'culture of poverty' interpretations and contrasts it with the efforts of Philadelphia Puerto Ricans to recreate their communities and deal with the impact of economic restructuring and residential segregation in the City of Brotherly Love. Author note: Carmen Teresa Whalen is Assistant Professor of Puerto Rican and Hispanic Caribbean Studies at Rutgers University.
