The Impact of the Presbyterian Church in the Caribbean
Carlos Eduardo Martins
The real test of theory is its adequacy as an instrument of understanding contemporary reality. The TMD has been enriched and renewed from this work of Carlos Eduardo Martins. It considers capitalism from the perspective of anti-capitalism, dependence from the standpoint of emancipation and reality through a vision for its revolutionary transformation.

This book was first published in 2011 as Globalização, dependência e neoliberalismo na América Latina by Boitempo Editorial, São Paulo, Brazil.
La teoría marxista de la dependencia (TMD) logró articular la inserción de las sociedades periféricas en el mercado internacional con los procesos de acumulación de capital de cada país. Se ha convertido en una teoría esencial para la comprensión de nuestras sociedades. Desde que Ruy Mauro Marini expuso sus fundamentos, muchas transformaciones ocurrieron en el capitalismo global y en nuestras sociedades, poniendo el desafío de actualización en condiciones más complejas
La prueba real de la teoría es su adecuación como instrumento de comprensión de la realidad contemporánea. La TMD sale enriquecida y renovada de esta obra de Carlos Eduardo Martins dedicada a pensar el capitalismo bajo la perspectiva del anticapitalismo, la dependencia en la óptica de la emancipación y la realidad en la perspectiva de su transformación revolucionaria.

Contesting Neo-Liberalism by Occupying Companies, Creating Cooperatives, and Recuperating Autogestión
The late pre-Columbian period in the region of Lima has mainly been studied and described thanks to the help of ethnohistorical sources. Urban development has destroyed many pre-hispanic ruins, but nevertheless a growing amount of archaeological data is now available. It is especially since 2008 that renewed interest in the pre-hispanic past of Lima has emerged, including through the development of rescue archeology and heritage management. In this chapter, I propose to use these different types of sources to develop a synthetic picture of the sociopolitical organization of the area under the Inca Empire.

In the Iberoamerican world, printing and written culture in general, proliferated in episcopal and university venues, enclaves which also had institutional, economic, and political equipment in tune with the typographic developments of the time. In 16th-century Spanish America, Lima was an important center of administrative and governmental infrastructure. Additionally, it was a center of learning and research, home to convent libraries, research centers, and even a royally sanctioned university, the Universidad de San Marcos. Lima, therefore, was home to a wide-ranging literary public made up of the clergy, professors, scholars, students, employees, and liberal professionals. At the end of the 16th century, Lima could boast of being the most dynamic cultural enclave in the South America, equipped with material far superior to that of many Spanish and European medium-sized cities.
