The Festive State

If, as David Guss argues, culture is a contested terrain with constantly changing contours, then festivals are its battlegrounds, where people come to fight and dispute in large acts of public display. Festive behavior, long seen by anthropologists and folklorists as the "uniform expression of a collective consciousness, is contentious and often subversive," and The Festive State is an eye-opening guide to its workings. Guss investigates "the ideology of tradition," combining four case studies in a radical multisite ethnography to demonstrate how in each instance concepts of race, ethnicity, history, gender, and nationhood are challenged and redefined. In a narrative as colorful as the events themselves, Guss presents the Afro-Venezuelan celebration of San Juan, the "neo-Indian" Day of the Monkey, the mestizo ritual of Tamunangue, and the cultural policies and products of a British multinational tobacco corporation. All these illustrate the remarkable fluidity of festive behavior as well as its importance in articulating different cultural interests.

Conglomerate Rock argues that while it is becoming easier to see and hear artists from a handful of transnational corporations, access to music is becoming more dispersed, expensive, and difficult to acquire. The music industry is creating a new distribution infrastructure by dividing access to exclusive releases through different subscription services, hardware, and new media like audio DVDs in order to maximize profits.

To understand contemporary Mexico, it is absolutely necessary to examine its level of development, and its relationship with the rest of the world. The level of development will, most likely, be related to the world system network, although the concepts are not identical. In Understanding Mexico and Mexico City in the World Economy, the authors aim to determine Mexico's level of development, and how Mexico fits into the world system.Through their research, the authors provide outcomes that will develop a more refined world systems approach. The book features cluster analyses of Mexican economic development levels, sector case studies including specific spatial analyses and maps of trends in Mexico, a systematic theoretic framework encompassing levels of the world, national, and local areas, and recent data presented through maps, tables, charts, and statistical summaries. The text will prove to be useful and practical for researchers, academics, and others interested in Mexico and its international linkages.
