9780803262171: Judas at the Jockey Club and Other Episodes of Porfirian Mexico (Second Edition)

This brilliant and eminently readable cultural history looks at Mexican life during the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz, from 1876 to 1911. At that time Mexico underwent modernization, which produced a fierce struggle between the traditional and the new and exacerbating class antagonisms. In these pages, the noted historian William H. Beezley illuminates many facets of everyday Mexican life lying at the heart of this conflict and change, including sports, storytelling, healthcare, technology, and the traditional Easter-time Judas burnings that became a primary focus of the strife during those years. This second edition features a new preface by the author as well as updated and expanded text, notes, and bibliography.

About the Author:

William H. Beezley is a professor of history at the University of Arizona and is the director of the Oaxaca Summer Institute in Modern Mexican History. He is the author of numerous books, including El Gran Pueblo: A History of Greater Mexico (with Colin M. MacLachlan), and the editor (with Michael C. Meyer) of The Oxford History of Mexico.

Review:

“In three superbly crafted and incisive essays, William H. Beezley examines the leisure culture of high society and the traditional culture of ‘everyday Mexicans’ and their interaction and clash. . . . Witty and entertaining but also thought-provoking.”—American Historical Review (American Historical Review)

“A book that will be read and enjoyed, and that will illuminate succeeding generations of Mexican history students. . . . A landmark study of Mexican cultural history.”—Journal of American Folklore (Journal of American Folklore)

“Just beneath the surface of this seemingly lighthearted little book is a very thick foundation of solid scholarship. The author succeeds admirably in opening a window to the minds of turn-of-the-century Mexicans pursuing the elusive idea of progress. . . . A delightfully written, unique example of what social history is about.”—Library Journal (Library Journal)
