    Powerful Portrait of Political/Social Struggle

    Christine Eber and Christine Kovic, who both teach anthropology at the university level, tell us that their book 'highlight[s] the concerns, visions, and struggles of women in Chiapas, Mexico.' Specifically, the editors intend to 'deepen the awareness of these conditions by exploring several issues that have taken center stage: poverty, discrimination, and violence; religious change and women's empowerment; and women organizing for social change.' Relying not only on scholarly articles from experts in the field, the editors also include first person accounts in the form of narratives, poetry, song lyrics and even a short play. This important and accessible book fulfills the editors' goal of deepening our awareness of the women of Chiapas thanks in large part to the words of these very same women. I highly recommend this book.
