9780292721043: Women and Alcohol in a Highland Maya Town : Water of Hope, Water of Sorrow Revised Edition

This pioneering ethnography looks at women and drinking in the Highland Chiapas, Mexico, community of San Pedro Chenalhó to address the issues of women's identities, roles, relationships, and sources of power. In a new epilogue, Christine Eber describes how events of the last decade, including the Zapatista uprising, have strengthened women's resolve to gain greater control over their lives by controlling the effects of alcohol in the community.

About the Author:

Christine Eber is Professor Emerita of Anthropology at New Mexico State University. Her previous books include Women and Alcohol in a Highland Maya Town: Water of Hope, Water of Sorrow and Women of Chiapas: Making History in Times of Struggle and Hope (coedited with Christine Kovic). She is a founding member of Las Cruces-Chiapas Connection, a network of volunteers that assists Chiapas weavers to sell their products through fair trade.

Review:

"Women and Alcohol is a book worth reading.... The book’s informal tone and interesting topic make it appealing to a wide audience, including casual readers and undergraduate classes. Furthermore, Eber’s cross-cultural insight into alcohol dependency is relevant not only for anthropologists but also for health care professionals and others who deal with substance abuse." (Latin American Indian Literatures Journal)

"In this well-written ethnography, Christine Eber weaves together the critical issues of gender relations, religious change, domestic violence, and drinking in highland Chiapas.... This is a fine ethnography that is a must-read for all interested in gender relations in contemporary Latin America. It is also one of the best current discussions on the little-studied phenomenon of religious change in Mexico.... Eber also provides a wonderful model of how to write a readable ethnography that treats its subjects with dignity and respect and honestly integrates the trials and tribulations of the ethnographer in the process." (Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute)
