18 Communication & Media Hablar al aire. Una historia de la idea de comunicación Speaking into the Air. A History of the Idea of Communication JOHN DURHAM PETERS La comunicación y los medios. Metodologías de investigación cualitativa y cuantitativa Communication and the Media. Methodology of Qualitative and Quantitative Research Edited by KLAUS BRUHN JENSEN $20.00 Paperback, 360 pp. Comunicación y E st udios Culturales cm ( in) ISBN: $31.95 Paperback, 689 pp. Comunicación y E st udios Culturales cm (6.7 9 in) ISBN: Hablar al aire, by the communication specialist John Durham Peters, is a work translated to Spanish for the first time thanks to José María Ímaz focused on the subject of communication as a way of perception. It particularly analyzes the peak communication reached along with the informative media in the ninetieth- and middle of the twentieth-century. It is worth mentioning that this is not a book about the study of a specific language, but a general approach to the problem of communication between individuals of the modern world. The author takes on the subject from its historicity, going back to its Greek culture and Christian religion origins. Then, he considers some of the foundations of different German philosophical movements of the ninetieth-century to, finally, settle his research on the results offered by these precedents: the notions of what is possible to communicate and what is not. T his text offers a methodological guide for quantitative and qualitative research in communications. It traces the origins of the study of communication and mass media, and relates them to the current debates on the subject. The book is a proposal that contains the different perspectives in the academic field. Thus, it offers updated resources that will help researches and professionals to get a richer and current comprehension of the media convergence. Some of the subjects included in it are the type of resources needed for investigation, the processes of communication, the media users, the media contexts, as well as the different scientific approaches that exist on the theme. 18

The present volume is rich not only because of the subjects treated in it, but also as to the point of view from which Paz approaches the social phenomena he deals with, as these reveal the dual character seemingly contradictory of culture: habits that remain stable through time, modeling the cultural profile, intermingled with new ideas that drive change. Poetry has a privileged place in the abundant and varied works from Paz, and this volume offers a full perspective from all corners of his poetry. The reader will appreciate the dialogue Paz established with other poets through his translations of writers belonging to literary European and Asian traditions: Sanskrit, Japanese and Chinese. iscelánea is the subtitle Mthat designates the vast and heterogeneous group of texts put together in the last volume of Obras completas. It adds the necessary distinctions to be able to better appreciate the author and his work from another perspective. The present volume comprehends volumes XIII, XIV, and XV of the previous edition and abounds in texts from several genres and times that all together are a proof of the richness that defines Paz s work. 27

The implications of this argument in the implementation of law as in cases of conscience objection, justification of religious wars, freedom of religion or equality before law are also subject of this sharp, deep, and clear dissertation, where one of the most recognized philosophers of law examines the metaphysics of value to conclude that freedom of religion should not come from the respect to the belief in God, but from the right to ethical autonomy. 33

An Overview on Demographic Change Coordinated by CECILIA RABELL ROMERO Sociología: estudios sobre las formas de socialización Sociology: Studies on the Forms of Socialization GEORG SIMMEL With an Introductory Study by GINA ZABLUDOVSKY KUPER & OLGA SABIDO RAMOS JAIME OSORIO $16.95 Paperback, 289 pp. Sociología cm ( in) ISBN: $51.00 Paperback, 933 pp. Sociología cm (6.7 9 in) ISBN: $ st ed., 2015 Paperback, 728 pp. Sociología cm (6.5 9 in) ISBN: In the light of recent theories of democratization, it seems as if in Latin America the voting system assists the neo-oligarchization of the State. The multiplication of electoral surveys under the preeminence of procedural forms makes the vote far from beeing a force capable of influencing the central decisions of political power in the region. The existing projects to transform the current social order claim that the issues related to this power must be solved; hence necessity to discuss several notions about civil society and to give a wide conceptual exposition about the main subjects related to the analysis of the State, of power, and of politics. T he data dealt with in this book cover the majority of aspects relevant to the dynamic demography and its interaction with other spheres of society. There have been noticed several shifts in the tendencies of demographical changes, new cycles that are beginning, and also a wider heterogeneity in people s behavior, in certain scopes where decision making means a concrete influence on demography. In Sociología, Simmel presents an analysis of the processes of individualization and socialization and traces the outlines of a sociological methodology, isolating those general and recurrent forms of social interaction on a political, economic and aesthetic scale. 42

In these texts she unravels the customs and aspirations of the locals, and explores both the present relevance of the countryside and its contrast with the reality of urban areas.

The three of them concur in the illusory character of the State, either treated as a supra-social entity, as a powerful set of methods for ordering and representing the social reality, or as a metaconcept disembodied from the political daily practice that inhibits the citizenship conformation, and show that the modern political science is unable to adequately define the concept without ideological slants. 43
