Gustavus Myers Outstanding Book Award from the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Bigotry and Human Rights This new edition of an immensely influential book gives voice to Mexic Amerindian women silenced for hundreds of years by the dual censorship of being female and indigenous. Castillo replaced the term “Chicana feminism” with “Xicanisma” to include mestiza women on both sides of the border. In history, myth, interviews, and ethnography Castillo revisits her reflections on Chicana activism, spiritual practices, sexual attitudes, artistic ideology, labor struggles, and education-related battles. Her book remains a compelling document, enhanced here with a new afterword that reexamines the significance of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Growing up as the intellectually spirited daughter of a Mexican Indian immigrant family during the 1970s, Castillo defied convention as a writer and a feminist. A generation later, her mother's crooning mariachi lyrics resonate once again. Castillo—now an established Chicana novelist, playwright, and scholar—witnesses her own son's spiraling adulthood and eventual incarceration. Standing in the stifling courtroom, Castillo describes a scene that could be any mother's worst nightmare. But in a country of glaring and stacked statistics, it is a nightmare especially reserved for mothers like her: the inner-city mothers, the single mothers, the mothers of brown sons. Black Dove: Mamá, Mi'jo, and Me looks at what it means to be a single, brown, feminist parent in a world of mass incarceration, racial profiling, and police brutality. Through startling humor and love, Castillo weaves intergenerational stories traveling from Mexico City to Chicago. And in doing so, she narrates some of America's most heated political debates and urgent social injustices through the oft-neglected lens of motherhood and family.

Das Buch ist eine chinesisch-deutsche rechtsvergleichende Monografie, die vor allem auf das neue Vertragsrecht der Volksrepublik China, insbesondere das Vertragsgesetz von 1999, eingeht. Dieses wird zunachst in seinen historischen Zusammenhang gestellt und anschliebend mit dem deutschen Recht verglichen. Die vergleichenden Untersuchungen zeigen, dass sich das chinesische Vertragsgesetz von 1999 sowohl in den allgemeinen Grundlagen und Prinzipien als auch in der Dogmatik deutlich am deutschen Recht orientiert. Im Besonderen werden zahlreiche deutsche Einzelregelungen rezipiert. Allerdings geht das chinesische Gesetz bei der inhaltlichen Gestaltung vielfach eigene Wege.
