About this Item

x, 386 p. Illustrations. Notes. References. Index. Can we address the issue of nationalism without polemics and restore it to the domain of social science? Claudio Lomnitz-Adler takes a major step in that direction by applying anthropological tools to the study of national culture. His sweeping and innovative interpretation of Mexican national ideology constructs a new theoretical framework for the study of national and regional cultures. With an analysis of culture and ideology in internally differentiated regional spaces-in this case Morelos and the Huasteca in Mexico-this study links ethnographic and historical research to two specific aspects of Mexican national ideology and culture: the history of legitimacy and charisma in Mexican politics, and the relationship between the national community and racial ideology. Good in very good dust jacket. Highlighting/underlining. Blue highlighting noted in a relatively limited area. Bookseller Inventory # 62556

About this title

Synopsis:

Can we address the issue of nationalism without polemics and restore it to the domain of social science? Claudio Lomnitz-Adler takes a major step in that direction by applying anthropological tools to the study of national culture. His sweeping and innovative interpretation of Mexican national ideology constructs an entirely new theoretical framework for the study of national and regional cultures everywhere. With an analysis of culture and ideology in internally differentiated regional spaces―in this case Morelos and the Huasteca in Mexico―Exits from the Labyrinth links rich ethnographic and historical research to two specific aspects of Mexican national ideology and culture: the history of legitimacy and charisma in Mexican politics, and the relationship between the national community and racial ideology.

From the Back Cover:

"One of the most original and comprehensive treatments of the topic of Mexican nationalism that exists. . . . No book combines the theoretical breadth and the empirical depth of this one."--Henry A. Selby, University of Texas, Austin

"Rich, detailed, and sophisticated, the analyses of the Huasteca and especially the Morelos are at once excellent introductions to the regions, commentaries on existing ethnography in them, and advances in ethnographic analysis."--William Roseberry, New School for Social Research
