Conflict, domination, violence-in this wide-ranging, briskly narrated volume from acclaimed Mexican historian Carlos Illades, these three phenomena register the pulse of a diverse, but inequitable and discriminatory, social order. Drawing on rich and varied historical sources, Illades guides the reader through seven signal episodes in Mexican social history, from rebellions under Porfirio Diaz's dictatorship to the cycles of violence that have plagued the country's deep south to the recent emergence of neo-anarchist movements. Taken together, they comprise a mosaic history of power and resistance, with artisans, rural communities, revolutionaries, students, and ordinary people confronting the forces of domination and transforming Mexican society.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Unequivocally, a very timely work that expands the understanding of Mexico's social history...Highly recommended." * Choice

"Students and scholars of Mexican and Latin American history will benefit greatly from this accessibly written and timely collection." * Bulletin of Latin American Research

"This book pieces together emblematic fragments of Mexican social history to shed light on their structural continuities (in the repertoires of violence, forms of domination and cycles of contestation), and succeeds in posing important historical and political questions that may ultimately pertain to the present and future of social movements in and beyond Mexico." * Journal of Latin American Studies

"As one of the preeminent Mexican historians of his generation, Carlos Illades is uniquely able to provide a long-term perspective on themes of great contemporary relevance. This long-awaited translation of his work into English demonstrates his expertise on a range of historical topics, making a vital contribution to Mexican historiography." * Pablo Piccato, Columbia University
