Railroad Radicals in Cold War Mexico: Gender, Class, and Memory

By Robert F. Alegre | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I arrived in Mexico in July 1999 at the age of twenty-four with no experience in the country and little knowledge of its history. My aim was to gather enough material to write a thesis on a railroad strike that occurred in the 1950s.

I am unlikely to turn this book into a major motion picture, but I nevertheless appreciate his faith in me. His love of books has been his greatest gift to me. My large extended family in New Jersey, Chile, Belfast, and Portland, Maine, provided all the love and warmth I needed. My mother-in-law, Vicki Tarbell, has provided me with a great deal of love, support, and encouragement over the years. When a Greyhound rolled out of Belfast with a case containing my oral histories, it was Vicki who sped down the highway to track it down. It has been wonderful to get to know Tom and Megan Abercrombie and to watch Maggie and Gridley grow up.

I want to acknowledge all of the support that my close friends in
