It will be of interest to everyone who loves history, sacred places and sacred history, and those who like to explore their ancestry and roots.
No sacred land for vanquised

Considered the southern border of Europe, a territory that the far right describes as a strange and wild land, full of overcrowded cities, empty villages, exotic landscapes, exuberant raw materials, successful footballers and hordes of menacing migrants, the regions of the Sahel and North Africa share and suffer from the pernicious effects of the decline of its traditional patterns of life, ruined by accelerated imposition of modernity, capitalism, communism, xenophobia, and incipient neo-colonialism: from misery to corruption, from unemployment, economic and social inequality, the technological gap, educational underdevelopment, lack of infrastructure, food and health insecurity, foreign interference, the blind ambition of their own leaders, religion extremism, the repeated violation of fundamental rights and the yoke of patriarchy. Also, the scourge of a new form of economy, the corsair or buccaneer economy, based on the smuggling of all kinds of products -arms, drugs, people, food, electrical appliances, fuel, and people- to which little attention is paid but which in reality articulates the entire region, becomes the problems chronic and is the only option for work and subsistence for millions of families. In There is no sacred land for the vanquished, the award-winning Spanish journalist Javier Martín takes a unique and complete journey through the routes of irregular migration, from central Africa to the rescue ships in the Mediterranean and discovers through the testimony of his protagonists -migrants, traffickers, military, aid workers- the establishment of a new social and economic system that, together with the European militarization of borders and the total privatization of wars like Libya, are deteriorating the true spirit of Africa, a continent in the one that migration is an ancestral asset, shapes its culture and sustains its soul.
From the New York Times bestselling author Mercedes Lackey comes contemporary fantasy Sacred Ground—now back in print! Jennifer Talldeer is Osage and Cherokee, granddaughter of a powerful Medicine Man. She walks a difficult path: contrary to tribal custom, she is learning a warrior's magics. A freelance private investigator, Jennifer tracks down stolen Native American artifacts. The construction of a new shopping mall uncovers fragments of human bone, revealing possible desecration of an ancient burial ground. Meanwhile, the sabotage of construction equipment at the site implicates many activists—particularly Jennifer's old flame, who is more attractive and dangerous than ever. Worst of all, the grave of Jennifer's legendary Medicine Man ancestor has been destroyed, his tools of power scattered, and a great evil freed to walk the land. Jennifer must make peace with the many factions and solve the mystery of her ancestor's grave before the world falls into oblivion. "Skillfully weaving a tale of fantasy, mystery, and Native American folklore, Lackey has written a unique novel sure to appeal to YAs."--School Library Journal At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The struggle between the Navajo and Hopi tribes, with the federal government as referee, is more than a fight for land; it is, more critically, a fight for cultural survival. The dispute is ripping apart the lives - economic, spiritual, and physical - of the individuals who live on the land in question. It is a quarrel with no obvious or simple solution, an argument that deals both in abstract principles and real human suffering. What are the implications of this government-sponsored resettlement? A precedent has been set for allocating public lands to accommodate the growth of traditional indigenous populations. This book details the roots of the conflict, its complex elements, and its players, providing a perspective that reflects the heart of this problem.

'Definitely a book that sheds light on perspectives and perceptions about today's global economy. A must read for tourists and corporations alike - also heads of state, the media and environment groups - all of whom need to be informed on this key subject.' Chief Garry John, Chair and Spokesperson, St'at'imc Chiefs' Council 'an activist's call to action on behalf of people who have been made invisible in the merciless spread of globalization under corporate control.' Nina Rao, Southern Co Chair of the Tourism Caucus at the UN Commission on Sustainable Development, and Professor of Tourism 'A powerful and much-needed tool to fight the seemingly all-pervasive ignorance in the corporate and consumer-driven world that continues to hail ecotourism and other tourism 'alternatives' as beneficial to local people without looking at the root causes of problems.' Anita Pleumarom, Tourism Investigation and Monitoring Team, Bangkok Tourism is the fastest growing industry in the world. Ecotourism, often considered a more benign form of tourism, can in fact cause the most damage, as it targets more vulnerable environments and cultures. Is the Sacred for Sale? looks at our present crossroads in consumer society. It analyses the big questions of tourism, clarifying how tourism can support biodiversity conservation. It also offers a cross-cultural window to the divide between corporate thinking and sacred knowledge, to help us understand why collisions over resources and land use are escalating. Finally, we have a full spectrum of information for healthy dialogue and new relationships. This book is a profound wake up call to the business world and to decision-makers who shape current policy. It poses important questions to us all and is a must read for every tourist and traveller.
