A Comparative History of Literatures in the Iberian Peninsula is the second comparative history of a new subseries with a regional focus, published by the Coordinating Committee of the International Comparative Literature Association. As its predecessor for East-Central Europe, this two-volume history distances itself from traditional histories built around periods and movements, and explores, from a comparative viewpoint, a space considered to be a powerful symbol of inter-literary relations. Both the geographical pertinence and its symbolic condition are obviously discussed, when not even contested. Written by an international team of researchers who are specialists in the field, this history is the first attempt at applying a comparative approach to the plurilingual and multicultural literatures in the Iberian Peninsula. The aim of comprehensiveness is abandoned in favor of a diverse and extensive array of key issues for a comparative agenda. A Comparative History of Literatures in the Iberian Peninsula undermines the primacy claimed for national and linguistic boundaries, and provides a geo-cultural account of literary inter-systems which cannot otherwise be explained.

When ""Amerikanuak"" was first published in 1975, it was hailed as both a pioneering study of one of the American West's most important ethnic minorities and as an engaging, comprehensive survey of Basque migration and settlement in the Americas. Its value as an essential introduction to the history of the Basque people and their five centuries of involvement in the New World has not diminished in the thirty years since, and it remains the most accessible overview of the Basque diaspora in the Western Hemisphere. Research for the book took the authors through ten states of the American West, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela as they traced the exploits of Basque whalers in the medieval Atlantic; the Basque conquistadors, missionaries, and colonists who formed a dramatic part of the history of Spanish America; and the Basque sheepherders who were the backbone of the now nearly vanished range-sheep empires of the American West. They also trace the story of the Basques back to their mysterious origins in prehistory and provide background for understanding the Basques' character and their homeland in the Pyrenean mountains and seacoasts between France and Spain. This new paperback edition makes this indispensable study of Basques in America available to another generation of readers. It includes a fresh preface by William A. Douglass.

Ce volume reunit les contributions de quelques uns des meilleurs specialistes des langues regionales de France, reunis dans un cadre exterieur a l'hexagone pour un bilan distancie interdisciplinaire et comparatif. Les textes, en francais et en anglais, sont organises en trois grandes parties: situation generale, problemes institutionnels, etudes de cas. Des (socio)linguistes, ethnologues, geographes, juristes, responsables de l'enseignement, couvrent le panorama global des problemes qui se posent, soit par des analyses transversales de questions generales (identification, vitalite, perception politique), soit par l'analyse d'exemple precis (taux de pratique diverses, situation institutionnelle et juridique, medias, actions culturelles, enseignement) pris dans six langues differentes (alsacien, basque, breton, corse, occitan, provencal). Trois caracteristiques originales marquent cet ensemble: une confrontation complementaire entre une vision francophone et une vision anglophone de la question, la methode du bilan global par echantillonnage, et enfin le souci d'articuler analyse scientifique et reflexion humaniste, observation objective et actions concretes. Dans cet etat des lieux a un tournant historique, se dessinent des pistes de repositionnement scientifique des problemes ainsi que des mesures administratives et politiques. Des perspectives d'amenagement et d'evolutions sont evoquees, a partir d'une reflexion situee dans le cadre de la transition vers l'Union europeenne et de l'ouverture croissante des relations internationales.
