CHAPTER I LIVED TEMPORALITIES IN GUATEMALA This chapter will give an introduction to the approach taken in this book. First, the reader’s imagination shall be invited to travel to the location of the research: Guatemala shall be introduced in relation to the theme of this book by way of Ancient Mayan mythology. This is how I first encountered vitalism, before understanding it theoretically through the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze. Second, the theme of the research shall be introduced theoretically. Third, the location of the re- search shall be introduced

Guatemala und die Tschechoslowakei zu Beginn des Kalten Krieges LUKÁŠ PERUTKA Dieser Aufsatz beleuchtet das bisher wenig untersuchte historische Problem des Verhältnisses zwischen der Tschechoslowakei und Guatemala während der so genannten guatemaltekischen Revolution zwischen 1944 und 1954.1 Die Recher- che beruht größtenteils auf unveröffentlichten Quellen aus tschechischen Archi- ven, den Archiven der Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) und wichtigen Mono- graphien zu dieser Thematik. Das tschechoslowakische Verhältnis zu Guatemala entstand bereits

4 The Economic and Social Structure of Guatemala The following chapter on Guatemala’s economic structure and development is divided into two major parts. The first part gives a brief overview of Guatemala’s geographic conditions and most important macroeconomic features. The explana- tions fulfil two purposes: first, building the basis for an analysis of the private business sector in Guatemala (chapter 5); and second, providing essential eco- nomic background information to better understand how economic factors were linked to the civil war. In the

und schließlich vom strategic oder cosmic level, auf dem Exorzis- mus bei dämonisch besessenen Regierungen praktiziert wird. Für letzteres muss man – wie in Guatemala praktisch durchgeführt – ein spiritual map- ping von Regionen vornehmen, das die Kriegsziele genau zu bestimmen er- laubt. Es liegt auf der Hand, dass Wagner und seine Missionsfreunde mit dieser Ideologie bei den sozial verantwortlichen Evangelikalen der FTL nicht mehr landen konnte. Er gewinnt dafür finanziell potentere Verbündete in der neopentekostalen Oberschicht, die gelegentlich auch – wie Harold

CHAPTER 3 ‘TODO SIRVE’1: THE PASSIVE SELF AND THE GUATEMALAN MARKET 3.1 INTRODUCTION: IMMANENCE AND TERRIT ORIALI SAT ION In the previous chapter, lived time was naturally framed by the actual given. Tradition provided a frame for lived time to emerge passively. In this chapter, by contrast, there is no frame. Lived time appears un- bound, in a state of ‘immanence’2 where all distinctions are gone and absolute movement is set free. Immanence is the absence of any kind of pre-given structure. Duration, the virtual, has gone actual. Space has become time

CHAPTER 5 ‘GRACIAS A DIOS’1 THE EVENT AND GUATEMALAN BUSES2 5.1 INTRODUCTION: MAKI NG SENSE OF T HE OTHER AND THE DOUBL E READING OF TI ME Making sense is orientation by the ‘event’. The event is the ‘forced movement’3 of affective differenciation introduced in the previous chapter by way of Deleuze’s reading of Freud through Nietzsche. Where the previous chapter was most of all about a self-affirmation of the own will for life in the co-existence with the unpleasant, this chap- ter will look at the event as a making sense of the ‘other’. The other is

Scorched Earth Campaigns, Forced Resettlement and Ethnic Engineering: Guatemala in the 1980s ANIKA OETTLER INTRODUCTION Guatemala’s internal armed conflict between several guerilla groups and the state lasted for more than three decades. From 1978 to 1985, military operations were carried out with extreme brutality, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths and over 626 massacres. In the wake of ›scorched earth operations‹, the military government began to resettle the displaced population in model villages (aldeas modelos) and highly

5 Structure and Role of the Private Business Sector in Guatemala Corporate interest groups can play potentially a crucial role in conflict manage- ment (see chapter 2.4). They can function as representative for the business community in peace negotiations, encourage or discourage corporate engagement in conflict management. In fact, in the Guatemalan case, different business asso- ciations and not individual entrepreneurs were the most important corporate ac- tors in the peace process. The purpose of this chapter is to give a brief characterization of the
