Annina rated it it was ok Nov 26, But it has history and conflict. As a critical space used to make sense of discourses and experiences of globalization, Eles eram muitos cavalos, I argue, presents new perspectives on the problems and pos- sibilities prompted by globalization.

The global city concept is derivative of that larger framework and speaks to the notion of globalization as fable. The book has been much praised, so perhaps the fault is mine, but essentially I found it unreadable. Luiz Ruffato uses a wide variety of techniques to make each little often just a page or two story unique. The essays, all written in Portuguese, range from under three to almost thirty pages. It does so by stressing the significance of oral discourse and by attenuating the reliance on written words while making use of silences, breaks, and interruptions to con- vey the corporeal experience of reading the text.

Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. I wanted to like this book. The book is set in Sao Paulo, and geez oh man does this book make Sao Paulo seem like a terribly depressing, violent, poor, and angry place.

After all, the idea of a global city implies the presence of global citizens and the characters in Entry 34 show that they have not yet achieved a condition of being citizens, much less of being global. First, as a fable, it is presented to us as a fantastic story of a net- work of an economic-productive-technological future; second, as perversity, where it has intensified a worldwide situation of unequal concentration of wealth; and third, as a possibility of emergence of alternative ways of inter- acting with the world.

Published by Record first published These cities, according to Sassen, are the spaces where cru- cial political decisions are made and serve as the organizing centers of global power in the geography of globalization. The multiple points of entry not only mark the multiplicity and heterogeneity of the space of the city, but also reveal holes and limits in a global city model whose essential property is that of presupposing a totalizing conception of cities that should adopt a formulaic character of universal applicability.

Books by Luiz Ruffato. Hence, the continuous shift in narrative voice and perspective announces various experiences that travel across class, gender, and race, ulti- mately unfolding a conjuncture of extreme social inequality. Therefore, in framing my reading of Eles eram muitos cavalos as a narrative in contention with main discourses of globalization, I am mainly arguing that the particular formulation of the text challenges the model of the global city as an organizing principle, while critiquing the notion of global- ization in its perverse sense.


Isabela B rated it it was ok Jul 09, Honestly, I just don’t understand the value of writing in run-on sentences, without punctuation or capitalization, and without any real indication of where the voices change. I try to reserve 1-star ratings for books I dislike so much that I can’t even finish them.

Might be a story in there amongst the babble, but I wasn’t going to waste my time trying to find out. This website uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website.
