Editorial Reviews

Review

“After it first appeared, Zapotec Women quickly became a must-read in the fields of gender and Latin American studies, and today it can fairly be regarded as a classic. This thoroughly revised edition is a tour de force. Not content merely to add a few pages at the beginning or end of chapters, Lynn Stephen has rethought several key conceptual frameworks and reconsidered the changes experienced in Teotitlán del Valle over the past twenty years.”— Matthew C. Gutmann, editor of Changing Men and Masculinities in Latin America


“How wonderful that this second edition of Zapotec Women is available! So well written and blessedly lacking in jargon, it comprehensively explains the evolution of women’s cooperatives in Teotitlán, including their interactions with the Mexican state and NGOs, and the effects of transnational forces like NAFTA and increased migration to the United States.”—Jean Jackson, coeditor of Indigenous Movements, Self-Representation, and the State in Latin America


“In Zapotec Women, Lynn Stephen presents a complex analysis of stereotypically strong women. She situates women’s independence, forged in daily life, in Zapotec tradition that is framed by state-sponsored images of ‘Mexican Indians’ and market transformations that have regional, national, and international dimensions. Stephen’s compelling analysis illuminates class, ethnic, and gender relations that are unexpected and contingent. She renders these social processes beautifully, leaving the reader with an appreciation of individual lives in the context of global transformation.”—Patricia Zavella, coeditor of Chicana Feminisms: A Critical Reader


“This book is a light in the darkness. The author is a brilliant weaver who, with great expertise, intertwines the fine threads of gender, class, ethnicity, nationality, age, and art, rendering a magnificent tapestry. A rigorous anthropology of Zapotec women in a socio-historical context, the work also surprises by contemplating the aesthetic component of the sarapes created by the artisans of Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca.”—Eli Bartra, editor of Crafting Gender: Women and Folk Art in Latin America and the Caribbean


“[M]ore than seventy pages have been added to the new edition [of Zapotec Women], including new narrative, new analysis, new photographs, new tables, and new reference matter. . . . Ultimately, this new book is richer because it too has a history. In fact, Zaptoec Women, is now positioned as an unfolding story, a serial account of the world created by Zapotec women and North American anthropologists that will change, grow, shrink, and expand as long as people are involved in an exchange of political, economic, and cultural goods and ideas. Given the violent summer of 2006 and the unresolved political conflicts in Oaxaca, there is a renewed urgency to read this volume.”
(Patrick McNamara The Americas)
