Focusing on fermented and distilled beverages, this collection of stimulating essays aims precisely at using “alcohol as a way to understand bigger topics within Latin American history, such as identity, ethnic and communal bonding, race, class, gender, power relations, state-building, and resistance” (p. 9). The editors, both experts on the history of alcohol in Mexico, also intended to compile writings that cover a broad regional and temporal spectrum. The volume is organized chronologically and is divided into three parts, covering respectively the pre-Hispanic and colonial periods, the long nineteenth century, and the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The introduction presents a well-developed historiographical overview of this subject, including the history of drugs. 2015-01-01 2020-09-11T21:05:39Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion ISSN: 0018-2168 https://repository.urosario.edu.co/handle/10336/29847 https://doi.org/10.1215/00182168-2836988 info:eu-repo/semantics/restrictedAccess application/pdf Duke University Press HAHR - Hispanic American Historical Review
