Power and Persuasion: Fiestas and Social Control in Rural Mexico

Synopsis

Demonstrates how the annual fiesta cycle reflects political dependency of local communities on the nation-state, helps maintain formal authority, and perpetuates behavioral norms and social values.

"Brandes has managed to combine splendid ethnography with convincing theoretical analysis. . . . A significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of the Mexican fiesta. . . . A classic."
American Anthropologist
