Mr. Dr. Moises Da Costa Gomez: Voorvechter van de Politieke Emancipatie der Nederlandse Antillen (Dutch Edition)


by drs. R.D. (Eugène) Boeldak MBA


Paperback


De komst van de olie-industrie op Curaçao en Aruba leidde tot sociaal-economische verschuivingen die grote gevolgen hadden voor de politieke aspiraties. Zo werd de roep om autonomie en meer democratie (algemeen kiesrecht) langzamerhand steeds luider. Midden jaren 30 keerde Moises da Costa Gomez terug naar Curaçao uit Nederland. Deze briljante student sloot zijn rechtenstudie af met een proefschrift waarin hij scherpe kritiek uitte op de koloniale macht in de Antillen. Terug op Curaçao stortte hij zich met hart en ziel in de politieke strijd. Da Costa Gomez' einddoel was de materiële vooruitgang van de zes Antilliaanse eilanden en geestelijke verheffing van het arme deel van het volk van Curaçao.

To Die in the USA


by Victor Fuentes


To Die in the USA portrays, not unlike Citizen Kane, the metaphorical death, and life of a Spanish exile. Set mainly in California and New York, but also in Spain, England, France, Venezuela, Colombia, and Chile, this work is a combination of fiction, history, and memoir. To Die in the USA is an antihero's existential odyssey from the Spanish Civil War to the Reagan Era, sometimes crude and cruel, but always tempered by a dose of black humor.
