Synopsis: In this groundbreaking book, Claudia Agostoni examines modernization in Mexico City during the era of Porfirio Diaz. With detailed analyses of the objectives and activities of the Superior Sanitation Council, and, in particular, the work of the sanitary inspectors, Monuments of Progress: Modernization and Public Health in Mexico City, 1876-1910 provides a fresh take on the history of medicine and public health by shifting away from the history of epidemic disease and heroic accounts of medical men and toward looking at public health in a broader social framework. She outlines the relationship between "enlightened" ideals of orderliness and hygiene to Mexican initiatives in public health. The implementation of new health policies and programs were of utmost importance for the symbolic legitimation of Porfirio Diaz's long-lasting regime (1876-1910), which emphasized modernization over individual rights and liberties.

Agostoni's unique study builds on a small, but fast-growing, body of literature on the history of public health in Latin America and represents a growing interest in the social and cultural history of public health in this area.

About the Author: Claudia Agostoni is a researcher at the Instituto de Investigaciones Históricas, at Universidad Nácional Autónoma de México and lectures in Latin American colonial history.
