Contemporary Galician Cultural Studies: Between the Local and the GlobalKirsty Hooper and Manuel Puga Moruxa, eds. Essential for the instructor offering classes or seminars in the topic. It is scholarly, thorough, and thought provoking. A groundbreaking book. Cristina Moreiras-Menor University of Michigan

Galicia occupies an ambiguous position, at the crossroads between land and sea, the Atlantic north and the Mediterranean south, Spanish and Portuguese. For two centuries, its nationhood was ignored or disputed and its people migrated in great numbers to the Americas. What it means to be Galician, therefore, is a central questionparticularly now, given Galicias new autonomy and todays trends of globalization and pluralism. In this first English-language collection of analyses of Galician culture and identity, many aspects of galeguidadeGaliciannessare explored. Among them are the nineteenth-century Rexurdimento and Rosala de Castros championing of and conflict with Galician nationalism, the status of Galician as a separate language, the attractions and problems of television series that express a utopian nostalgia, the continuing importance of Galician-language poetry and folk music, and challenges to Galician tradition by the postmodern avant-gardes after 1975.

This volume provides a resource for teachers interested in learning about the field of law and literature and shows how to bring its insights to bear in their classrooms, both in the liberal arts and in law schools. Essays in the first section, Theory and History of the Movement, provide a retrospective of the field and look forward to new developments. The second section, Model Courses, offers readers an array of possibilities for structuring courses that integrate legal issues with the study of literature, from The Canterbury Tales to current prison literature. In Texts, the third section, guidance is provided for teaching not only written documents (novels, plays, trial reports) but also cultural objects: digital media, Native American ceremonies, documentary theater, hip-hop. The volumes contributors investigate what constitutes law and literature and how each informs the other.
