This is one of the most brilliant pieces of historical research I have ever read. He views Mexico and its brutal history with critical engagement, precise and provocative analysis, and a deep sense of compassion for the millions of lives that are subsumed within its nationalist dialectics. Though his research is limited to one seemingly narrow topic, the sign of death from colonization, the panorama he offers from this vantage is broad. If I could assign only one book about Mexican history it would be this book.

I have not read the entire book, but it's very impressive. Wide-ranging, even encyclopedic. I'm delighted to have the volume in my possession.

Claudio Lomnitz is a masterful anthropolgist, historian and writer. In this book he breaks new ground and reveals Mexico's complex history and it's totemic symbols like they have never been revealed before.
