MEDIA REVIEWS
"This innovative, interactive, and highly engaging ethnography weaves together compelling personal narratives within the context of a Mexican community's adaption to political, economic, and cultural transformations. Drawing on more than 40 years of fieldwork, Sokolovsky immerses the reader in family and village relationships including intergenerational and gender rituals and conflicts. Cultural anthropology at its best."
--Serena Nanda, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUN
"This is the ethnography of the future, a true multimedia book, embedded with links to PowerPoints, audio clips, videos, and Google maps. Indigenous Mexico documents the evolution of central Mexican community from a traditional agrarian peasant village to a robust town engaged with the larger forces of globalization. The author has set a new standard for interactive ethnography."
