The Heart in the Glass Jar: Love Letters, Bodies, and the Law in Mexico
William E. French
“Gracefully written, convincingly argued, and accessible to nonspecialists, this book is equally well suited to graduate seminars and undergraduate courses in Mexican history as well as specialized history and/or theory courses on love, courtship, gender relations, and the written word.”—Robert M. Buffington, Historian
Monstrous Nature: Environment and Horror on the Big Screen
Robin L. Murray and Joseph K. Heumann
“[Readers] will find in this new book solid scholarship, broad research in the cinematic references necessary to approach the topics, and insightful analysis and juxtaposition of films . . . all contributing to our understanding of how ‘horror’ is among us now in the very real prospects of violent and sudden climate change.”—Charles J. Stivale, editor of Gilles Deleuze: Key Concepts
San Miguel de Allende: Mexicans, Foreigners, and the Making of a World Heritage Site
Lisa Pinley Covert
“A richly detailed work that blends history with cultural politics, San Miguel de Allende is a major contribution to several related fields, most clearly Mexican history, transnational history, and American studies. Its clear, concise, and compelling prose makes it easy to recommend and teach.”—Jason Ruiz, author of Americans in the Treasure House: Travel to Porfirian Mexico and the Cultural Politics of Empire
Rival Gardens: New and Selected Poems
“Connie Wanek is one of the best poets of our time, and this new book, Rival Gardens, certainly demonstrates that. These selections . . . are works of wit and subtlety, of clarity, great generosity, and precise vision that make this book a treasure to read again and again.”—Louis Jenkins, author of Before You Know It and Tin Flag
The Sovereign Colony: Olympic Sport, National Identity, and International Politics in Puerto Rico
“[The Sovereign Colony is] a reading feast for Puerto Rican sport fans. . . . It contributes to the understanding of colonialism where the agency of colonial subjects is emphasized in their negotiations of power structures. . . . A must read for scholars of U.S. and Caribbean history.”—Rosa Elena Carrasquillo, Diplomatic History
“A fine feminist and political novel that plunges into a country where ‘nobody dies a natural death.’ As she reveals the mechanisms of this totalitarian regime, Kettly Mars confirms the energy of Haitian literature, which includes, besides Dany Laferrière or Lyonel Trouillot, remarkable women as well.”—Le Nouvel Observateur
Deco Body, Deco City: Female Spectacle and Modernity in Mexico City, 1900–1939
“Deco Body provocatively combines the aesthetic, urban planning, and architecture and suggests new avenues of research that promise to productively expand the field of Mexican cultural history.”—Laura Isabel Serna, Pacific Historical Review
