Deep Mexico, Silent Mexico by Claudio Lomnitz-Adler
Book DescriptionInMexico, as elsewhere, the national space, that network of places where the people interact with state institutions, is constantly changing. How it does so, how it develops, is a historical process-a process that Claudio Lomnitz exposes and investigates in this book, which develops a distinct view of the cultural politics of nation building inMexico. Lomnitz highlights the varied, evolving, and often conflicting efforts that have been made by Mexicans over the past two centuries to imagine, organize, represent, and know their country, its relations with the wider world, and its internal differences and inequalities. Firmly based on particulars and committed to the specificity of such thinking, this book also has broad implications for how a theoretically informed history can and should be done. An exploration of Mexican national space by way of an analysis of nationalism, the public sphere, and knowledge production, DeepMexico, SilentMexicobrings an original perspective to the dynamics of national cultural production on the periphery. Its blending of theoretical innovation, historical inquiry, and critical engagement provides a new model for the writing of history and anthropology in contemporaryMexicoand beyond.Public Worlds Series, volume 9 "

Applying anthropological techniques to the study of national culture, the author of this work links ethnographic and historical research to two aspects of Mexican national ideology: the history of charisma in Mexican politics and the relationship between national community and racial ideology.
