Biografia editada per l’Associació d’Estudis Reusencs al 1971. Semblança escrita sobretot a base de fets, consideracions i anècdotes que la biografiada va explicar als periodistes. S’ha de creure que molta fantasia s’escolava en les seves informacions. Així, doncs, s’esdevé que, en molt bona part, s’ha refet la imatge que la pròpia dansarina s’havia triat. Es tracta d’una biografia completíssima de qui assolí fama mundial i triomfà rotundament a l’Òpera de París, després de passar, en els seus inicis, pel Teatre Principal de Barcelona, pel gran Teatre del Liceu, com a principal ballarina i, també, per l’Scala de Milà, l’Apollo de Roma i l’Imperial de Berlín.

Challenging traditional approaches to medical history, Disease in the History of Modern Latin America advances understandings of disease as a social and cultural construction in Latin America. This innovative collection provides a vivid look at the latest research in the cultural history of medicine through insightful essays about how disease—whether it be cholera or aids, leprosy or mental illness—was experienced and managed in different Latin American countries and regions, at different times from the late nineteenth century to the present. Based on the idea that the meanings of sickness—and health—are contestable and subject to controversy, Disease in the History of Modern Latin America displays the richness of an interdisciplinary approach to social and cultural history. Examining diseases in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia, the contributors explore the production of scientific knowledge, literary metaphors for illness, domestic public health efforts, and initiatives shaped by the agendas of international agencies. They also analyze the connections between ideas of sexuality, disease, nation, and modernity; the instrumental role of certain illnesses in state-building processes; welfare efforts sponsored by the state and led by the medical professions; and the boundaries between individual and state responsibilities regarding sickness and health. Diego Armus’s introduction contextualizes the essays within the history of medicine, the history of public health, and the sociocultural history of disease. Contributors. Diego Armus, Anne-Emanuelle Birn, Kathleen Elaine Bliss, Ann S. Blum, Marilia Coutinho, Marcus Cueto, Patrick Larvie, Gabriela Nouzeilles, Diana Obregón, Nancy Lays Stepan, Ann Zulawski

Between August 1918 and March 1919 a flu pandemic spread across the globe and in just under a year 40 million people had died from the virus worldwide. This is the first book to provide a total history and seriously analyze the British experiences during that time. The book provides the most up-to-date tally of the pandemic’s impact, including the vast mortality, as well as questioning the apparent origins of the pandemic. A ‘total’ history, this book ranges from the spread of the 1918–1919 pandemic, to the basic biology of influenza, and how epidemics and pandemics are possible, to consider the demographic, social, economic and political impacts of such a massive pandemic, including the cultural dimensions of naming, blame, metaphors, memory, the media, art and literature. An inter-disciplinary study, it stretches from history and geography through to medicine in order to convey the full magnitude of the first global medical ‘disaster’ of the twentieth century, and looks ahead to possible pandemics of the future. Niall Johnson brings an impressive scholarly eye on this fascinating and highly relevant topic making this essential reading for historians and those with an interest in British and medical history.

This is a book for both ballet and Spanish dancers. It is a journey through the history of the fascinating country of Spain with its vibrant culture and people. It is the fusion of fifty years of ballet and Spanish dance experienced by the author as dancer, teacher and director of Spanish dance performances for her own company in the USA and others. The author endeavours to unlock and explain the many mysteries that surround this dance form for teachers, historians and lay readers. The connection to ballet is explored, especially to the style of the 19th century as found in the Cecchetti method and in the work of August Bournonville. Also explored is the bolero school's distinction from ballet, that makes it so unique. The historical progression and significance of the Escuela Bolera or the classical bolero school of Spanish dance and its regional roots are traced, as well as those of the Pericet family who today are its main preservers. The book also contains biographies of Spanish dancers and teachers who have been connected with the bolero school through the ages
