Summary
"Focuses on the history and citizenship of towns and cities based on fieldwork in west Mexican towns near Guadalajara. Stack observes that people talked (and wrote) of their towns' history and not just of Mexico's. He explores the idea of 'the past' and asks why it's valued by so many people"--Provided by publisher
