              Carlos Salinas's government drew praise from many academic commentators and foreign governments for its boldness in embarking on neoliberal economic reforms that tackled some of the shibboleths of the Mexican revolutionary tradition and for its supposedly astute political managem...ent of change. This book offers a more critical understanding of the economic, social, and political dimensions of Salinismo. Although Gledhill focuses on its impact on the rural sector in the state of MichoacA!n, he shows that the problems of the region affect the United States as well as Mexico because reform is being implemented within the framework of a longer-term process of transnationalization of class relations and global capitalist restructuring. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork and anthropological theory, the book takes a close look at the responses of a regional society to economic change and the political strategies of the Salinas regime. Surveying the local impact of changing agricultural policies, ejido reform, and the U.S. Immigration Reform and Control Act, Gledhill distinguishes the positions of different social groups and highlights the larger processes in which the entire region is now caught up. Examining the linkages between rural Mexico and the agribusiness farms and factories of California, he underlines the political and social implications of these evolving relationships on both sides of the border, focusing on questions of hegemony and the role of transnational migrant communities. Only by examining the fractured social worlds of contemporary capitalism and the nature of the politics of exclusion, he concludes, can we assess the true social costs of neoliberal reform.

              In a post-colonial world, the contributions of anthropologists living outside North America and Western Europe can no longer be treated as marginal. World Anthropologies in Practice demonstrates how global dialogues enable us to draw on local knowledge as well as differences of p...erspective to help overcome anthropology's eternal struggle against ethnocentrism and to strengthen the subject's relevance to the contemporary world.Based on contributions to the ASA-sponsored IUAES World Anthropology Congress in Manchester, UK, this truly global book brings together a wide range of international scholars who might otherwise not talk to each other. Featuring articles from leading figures in the field such as Yolanda Moses, Winnie Lem, Carmen Rial, Miriam Grossi, and Cristina Amescua, the volume covers topics as diverse as the mobility of Brazilian football players, toilets in South Africa, trade unions in Nepal and South Africa, peace-building in southern Thailand, museological approaches in China, the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami, immigration and race in the United States, and many more. Edited by John Gledhill, the text offers a much-needed insight into the way in which anthropology is developing worldwide and makes a tremendous contribution to the discussion of 'world anthropologies'. An important, timely work for students and researchers.

              Casi NADA: A Study in Agrarian Reform in the Homeland of Cardenismo

              Casi NADA: A Study in Agrarian Reform in the Homeland of Cardenismo (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Gledhill, John

              A refreshingly unique historical analysis of the plight of peasants in revolutionary Mexico. . . . [Gledhill] offers invaluable insights into political, social, and economic processes in a style which is easily accessible to all interested scholars. This volume is highly recommen...ded for graduate collections. --Journal of Developing Societies In this book, John Gledhill recounts for us the surprising history of a social revolution carried out from above. In the enormous hacienda of Guaracha, situated in the northwest of the State of Michoacan, only a small group of rebels sympathized with the agrarian ideals of the Mexican Revolution. Faced with the indifference of the majority of the peasants and workers, the owner of the hacienda extrerminated the rebels. Later, the revoutionary government, perceived as abusive, anti-clerical and jacobean, aroused the mistrust and hostility of the people of Guaracha. Thus the redistribution of land promoted and effectuated by Lazaro Cardenas--the great craftsman of Mexican agrarianism--served to achieve greater political control over these discontent peasants. But, as Gledhill demonstrates exhaustively, it did not serve to liberate them from poverty, nor to convert them into effective supporters of the regime. Casi Nada is the result of the many months that the author shared the lives of the ejidatarios of Guaracha and of his patient reconstruction of the collective memory concerning a half century of violence and hope. WIthout a doubt, it will become obligatory reading for those interested in the themes of agrarian reform, peasant reproudction and political control at the local level. The book will also serve to remind us that, if it is true thatMexican peasants never have supported populist inefficiencies, neither will they become enthusiastic supporters of a neoliberal agenda which condemns them to disappear.
