Dear Friends of NACLA,
What's new at NACLA this week? Our Winter issue, about elections in the Americas, has shipped! Delayed by hurricanes and an office move, Volume 45:4 is now in the mail and should reach subscribers shortly. With features that reflect on now-decided presidential contests in the United States, Venezuela, and Mexico, as well as other national elections, it raises the question: the people have spoken–what now?
We hope NACLA supporters near and far can join us in welcoming the new–and celebrating our new partnership with NYU's Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS)–on February 6th, here in New York City. With wine and beer, snacks from south of the border, música latina, and remarks by notables from both CLACS and NACLA, it promises to be a good time. We look forward to meeting you in person!

*NEW BOOKS In our Winter 2012 Report we review two excellent new releases about disruptive social movements in Latin America, both by eminent Latin Americanists and regular NACLA contributors: Territories in Resistance, by Raul Zibechi, about emancipatory social formations that challenge the basis of the nation-state; and Everday Revolutions, by Marina Sitrin, on Argentina's autonomous movements. You can find them in our bookstore.
