Descrições do Produto

Sobre o Autor

Yanko Tsvetkov is a Bulgarian artist who lives in Spain, writes in English, and publishes books in Germany, France, Russia, Turkey, Italy, and China. He has visited several continents, passed through thick jungles, picnicked in scorching deserts, and booked a few taxis in busy metropolises. Today he leads a second life as a superhero that fights prejudice with his giant laser and his gorgeous cape. His distaste for writing autobiographical notes is a well-guarded secret.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Truth in its underwear 9 de julho de 2016
Por George F. Simons - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
Some will no doubt protest that history and fantasy don’t mix, however the real illuminati know that they are two sides of the same story. Probably, if we weren’t so hung up on stereotypes and biases, we might be able to find some utility in them, as they help us map who and where we are in the world. Tsvetkov has beat us to the punch with his Atlas of Prejudice. While the subtitle, describes this collection of maps as “The Complete Stereotype Map Collection”, one should take this refer to the author’s own complete collection – for the making of these maps there will never be an end.

This book argues for irony, humor, and above all the humility to see the truth about ourselves in its underwear. At the same time, the Atlas is fun to read as it opens our eyes to the spontaneous substratum of our synapsing neurons. The punchline of a joke makes us laugh because it jolts us out of our spontaneous conclusions about the story being told by offering an unexpected and different truth. Reading about the prejudices of others we are soon caught up in the recognition that these are humorous because they are our prejudices about their prejudices. In other words, they reflect history, a history of perceptions, the fantasies, romantic and bellicose, that can rarely be found in dusty tomes on library shelves or in hard-to-read academic textbooks. Biases are truths that become true because they are believed on the street and create the demographics of the neighborhood as well as shape international relations when politicians milk them for their zootoxins. Recognizing our biases and having a chuckle about them may be the best way to turn them into harmless venomoids.

On the other hand, taking them too seriously isolates us from each other and provides the emotional space for fear and the need to destroy or dominate. These maps are liberating. I am going to resist my temptation to describe those which I found most delicious in Tsvetkov’s colorful series. Suffice it to say that he begins with mapping the mind of the first human being and ends with that of the Facebook user.
5.0 de 5 estrelas Insight with a side of giggles 19 de março de 2017
Por Graham - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
The Amazon description seems unnecessarily dour, humourless and serious:

"A reliable weapon against bigots of all kinds, it serves as an inexhaustible source of much needed argumentation and—occasionally—as a nice slab of paper that can be used to smack them across the face whenever reasoning becomes utterly impossible."

This is a little too much contemporary Americanism. What the British might call "po-faced".

I don't know what Tsvetkov exactly had in mind in that vein, but his project smacks more strongly of the old world attitude to these sorts of stereotypes- everybody has them about everybody else, they exist because there's tons of truth in them, they vary according to circumstance, and you shouldn't take them too seriously or all the time. It's the sort of mindset that can see two people exchange stereotypes, then have a laugh and sit down for a beer. The project is civilized, insightful, and funny without any need for angst.

Nobody ever gets into conflicts anyway just because Europeans get called the Union of Subsidized Farmers or the Russians are a Paranoid Oil Empire, or Americans think half the world are "Commies". That sort of thing blows off more steam than it generates. Always has.

Anyway, if you have a mind to look at these maps in that spirit, you might get some insights into how various people see their neighbours, near or far, and you'll get plenty of chuckles. Well worth the time.
