Nature, Culture, and Storytelling in the North Atlantic
A cultural and environmental history that explores the unusual geography, saga narratives, language, culture, and politics, of the North Atlantic landscape to analyze the region’s modern transformation.
This book examines the ways that young men and women in working-class neighborhoods of El Progreso, Honduras, understand and respond to gang and gun violence. Offering firsthand accounts of how these youths make use of religious discourse, narrative practices, or the inscription of tattooed images to navigate dangerous social settings, Jesus and the Gang is an unflinching look at how these young men turn away from perpetuating the cycle of violence and how Christianity serves a society where belonging is surviving.
