Los Recorridos de la Tolerancia: Autores, Creaciones y Ciclos de una Ida = The Course of Technology

Isidro H. Cisneros, Author Grupo Oceano $27.2 (229p) ISBN 978-970-651-298-7
Cisneros, a politcal scientist with a doctorate from the University of Florence, believes that ""tolerance"" is the only way to foster respect among communities. He takes the reader on a journey through the historical episodes and cycles in which humanity has experienced advances and shameful setbacks. Generally, he says, ""a cycle of tolerance is followed by another of intolerance."" This well-organized work is impressive in scope and achievement. In the especially good chapter on Chiapas, Mexico, he reviews the economic and social conditions of the indigenous people of Chiapas and concludes that they have been suffering from a century of underdevelopment. He argues that a democratic future requires a multicultural tolerance that will permit all Mexicans to live in a society without discrimination or exclusion. The work includes an index of names and a handy analytical index that refers readers to appropriate essays discussed throughout the work. Unfortunately, the concept of liberal tolerance appears insufficient to tackle the theoretical and practical challenges faced by minorities. Yet Cisneros's work expands the view of the history of tolerance, which has become a keystone for contemporary liberal political philosophy, offering a needed perspective on the larger issues. This work is appropriate for both public and academic libraries. Nelly S. Gonzalez, Latin American and Caribbean Lib., Univ. of Illinois, Urbana
