From the Publisher"With a multiple focus on laws, court proceedings, and women's mobilizations, Gender and the Mexican Revolution demonstrates how gender identities, old and new, pervaded political and legal processes in a moment of extraordinary instability and turbulence. It makes a significant contribution to the thriving field of twentieth-century women and gender history in Latin America."
- Mary Kay Vaughan, coeditor of Sex in Revolution: Gender, Politics,and Power in Modern Mexico
"Smith has rewritten the revolutionary history of the Yucatan. We will never be able to go back to romanticizing the socialist governors or imagining an egalitarian society that never existed in the first place."
- Patrick McNamara, author of Sons of the Sierra: Juarez, Diaz, and the People of Ixtlan, Oaxaca, 1855-1920
