“The most significant disability studies anthology to emerge in years. It is extremely important that these particular branches of academic and political work rub against each other.”—Susan M. Schweik, professor of English at the University of California–Berkeley and author of The Ugly Laws: Disability in Public

“Contributes to multiple fields, responding to growing curricular and scholarly interest in environmental humanities and disability studies. . . . This will be a foundational text in its own right.”—Susan Burch, associate professor of American studies at Middlebury College and coeditor of At the Intersections: Deaf Meets Disability Studies

 

9781496206909-Perfect.inddJudas at the Jockey Club and Other Episodes of Porfirian Mexico, Third Edition by William H. Beezley, with a new preface by the author

“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

“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

“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

“Still has much to offer, especially to the generalist and classroom teacher of Mexican or Latin American History.”—Hispanic American Historical Review
