'68
The Mexican Autumn of the Tlatelolco Massacre
Paperback      ISBN: 1609808495
A firsthand account of the shocking Tlatelolco Massacre, still denied by the Mexican government. In Mexico City on the night of October 2, 1968, at least two hundred students--among thousands protesting election fraud and campaigning for university reform--were shot dead in a bloody showdown with government troops in Tlatelolco Square. Hundreds more were arrested, and imprisoned for years. Yet these events are nowhere to be found in official histories: that very night the bodies were collected and trucked away and the cobblestones washed clean, and government denial of all involvement began. To this day no one has been held accountable for the official acts of savagery.      One member of the crowd that night, Paco Taibo, would become an international literary figure; '68 is his account of the events of October 2, and of the student movement that preceded them, available for the first time in English, with a new epilogue by the author. In provocative, anecdotal prose, Taibo here claims for history "one more of the many unredeemed and sleepless ghosts that live in our lands."

Recognizing the fiftieth anniversary of the protests, strikes, and violent struggles that formed the political and cultural backdrop of 1968 across Europe, the United States, and Latin America, Susana Draper offers a nuanced perspective of the 1968 movement in Mexico. She challenges the dominant cultural narrative of the movement that has emphasized the importance of the October 2nd Tlatelolco Massacre and the responses of male student leaders. From marginal cinema collectives to women’s cooperative experiments, Draper reveals new archives of revolutionary participation that provide insight into how 1968 and its many afterlives are understood in Mexico and beyond. By giving voice to Mexican Marxist philosophers, political prisoners, and women who participated in the movement, Draper counters the canonical memorialization of 1968 by illustrating how many diverse voices inspired alternative forms of political participation. Given the current rise of social movements around the globe, in 1968 Mexico Draper provides a new framework to understand the events of 1968 in order to rethink the everyday existential, political, and philosophical problems of the present.

Paperback      ISBN: 607073873x
En este libro reafirmo mi postura de que la corrupción es el principal problema de México. Por esta razón, convoco a todos los mexicanos, mujeres y hombres, pobres y ricos, pobladores del campo y de la ciudad, religiosos o librepensadores, a construir un acuerdo nacional y a hacer de la honestidad una forma de vida y de gobierno. Con esta nueva forma de hacer política, y con un recto proceder, no hará falta aumentar impuestos ni seguir incrementando la deuda pública, y estoy seguro de que mejorarán las condiciones de vida y de trabajo. Si triunfamos en el 2018 y llevamos a cabo los cambios que proponemos, a finales del sexenio, es decir, en 2024, habrá un nivel de bienestar y un estado de ánimo completamente distinto al actual. Tendremos una sociedad mejor, no solo por lo que vamos a construir entre todos y desde abajo en el plano de lo material, sino por haber creado una nueva corriente de pensamiento, por haber consumado una revolución de las conciencias que ayudará a impedir, en el futuro, el predominio del dinero, del engaño y de la corrupción, y la imposición del afán de lucro sobre la dignidad, la verdad, la moral y el amor al prójimo. Decadencia y renacimiento de México.

Are We Not Foreigners Here?: Indigenous Nationalism in the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands
Are We Not Foreigners Here?
Indigenous Nationalism in the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands
Paperback      ISBN: 1469637111
Since its inception, the U.S.-Mexico border has invited the creation of cultural, economic, and political networks that often function in defiance of surrounding nation-states. It has also produced individual and group identities that are as subversive as they are dynamic. In Are We Not Foreigners Here?, Jeffrey M. Schulze explores how the U.S.-Mexico border shaped the concepts of nationhood and survival strategies of three Indigenous tribes who live in this borderland: the Yaqui, Kickapoo, and Tohono O'odham. These tribes have historically fought against nation-state interference, employing strategies that draw on their transnational orientation to survive and thrive. Schulze details the complexities of the tribes' claims to nationhood in the context of the border from the nineteenth century to the present. He shows that in spreading themselves across two powerful, omnipresent nation-states, these tribes managed to maintain separation from currents of federal Indian policy in both countries; at the same time, it could also leave them culturally and politically vulnerable, especially as surrounding powers stepped up their efforts to control transborder traffic. Schulze underlines these tribes' efforts to reconcile their commitment to preserving their identities, asserting their nationhood, and creating transnational links of resistance with an increasingly formidable international boundary.
