This book, edited by Ana Beatriz Chiquito and Miguel Ángel Quesada Pacheco, is the result of a research project they have headed at the University of Bergen: “Linguistic Identity and Attitudes in Spanish-speaking Latin America”. The project has studied how native speakers of Spanish identify with the Spanish they speak, their loyalty to it, and the social prejudice, acceptability or stigma associated with it and with the type of Spanish spoken in other Hispanic countries. The book brings together the studies conducted in twenty Spanish speaking countries by research teams from each of these countries.

The recent rise in Latin America of progressive, left-leaning governments – often supported by groups struggling for environmental justice – has challenged the established elites and raised expectations about new regimes for natural resource management. Based on case-studies in eight Latin American countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, El Salvador and Guatemala), this book, edited by Benedicte Bull and Mariel Cristina Aguilar-Støen, University of Oslo, investigates the extent to which there have been elite shifts, how new governments have related to old elites, and how that has impacted on environmental governance and the management of natural resources.

In Argentina, Pentecostalism had a breakthrough in the early 1980s. The revival coincided with a socio-political transformation of Argentinean society, and structural changes paved the way for a certain "autonomisation" of politics, law, economy, science and religion. In his PhD thesis Hans Geir Aasmundsen examines the new religious sphere and how Pentecostals relate to society at large, and the political and judicial sphere in particular.
