Solito

release date: Sep 15, 2022
Solito
'Heartbreaking… A rare, eye-opening rendition of the brutal reality of border-crossing.' Lea Ypi ‘If there’s any justice, Solito will someday be considered a classic.’ Rumaan Alam Young Javier dreams of eating orange sherbet ice cream with his parents in the United States. For this to happen, he must embark on a three-thousand-mile journey alone. It should last only two weeks. But it takes seven. In limbo, Javier learns what people will do to survive – and what they will forfeit to save someone else. This is a memoir of perilous boat trips, relentless desert treks, and pointed guns. But it is also a story of tasting tacos for the first time, of who passes you their water jug in the crippling heat, and of longing to be in your mother’s arms.

Unaccompanied

release date: May 01, 2018
Unaccompanied
"Every line resonates with a wind that crosses oceans."—Jamaal May "Zamora's work is real life turned into myth and myth made real life." —Glappitnova Javier Zamora was nine years old when he traveled unaccompanied 4,000 miles, across multiple borders, from El Salvador to the United States to be reunited with his parents. This dramatic and hope-filled poetry debut humanizes the highly charged and polarizing rhetoric of border-crossing; assesses borderland politics, race, and immigration on a profoundly personal level; and simultaneously remembers and imagines a birth country that's been left behind. Through an unflinching gaze, plainspoken diction, and a combination of Spanish and English, Unaccompanied crosses rugged terrain where families are lost and reunited, coyotes lead migrants astray, and "the thin white man let us drink from a hose / while pointing his shotgun." From "Let Me Try Again": He knew we weren't Mexican. He must've remembered his family coming over the border, or the border coming over them, because he drove us to the border and told us next time, rest at least five days, don't trust anyone calling themselves coyotes, bring more tortillas, sardines, Alhambra. He knew we would try again. And again—like everyone does. Javier Zamora was born in El Salvador and immigrated to the United States at the age of nine. He earned a BA at UC-Berkeley, an MFA at New York University, and is a 2016–2018 Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University.

Decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the Daimler AG V. Bauman Et Al Case

release date: Jan 01, 2016
Decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the Daimler AG V. Bauman Et Al Case
Following some preliminary observations related to its Kiobel background in Section I, this paper introduces the Daimler decision in Section II, in three epigraphs, respectively: History, Justice Ginsburg's Opinion and Justice Sotomayor's Opinion. Then it evaluates critically the decision in Section III, concluding these pages with some Final Reflections, Section IV, on what is now undoubtedly another key component for the comprehension of the system of the United States, and that in a general sense, beyond transnational human rights civil litigation.
