"The ethnographic result of Napolitano's work is splendid-it gives one the fascinating sensation of zooming back and forth between intimate real time conversations with the people of Polanco and a wide angle view of the city and the region through recent history."-Chris Kiefer, author of Health Work with the PoorFrom the Publisher:
Valentina Napolitano explores issues of migration, medicine, religion, and gender in this analysis of everyday practices of urban living in Guadalajara, Mexico. Drawing on fieldwork over a ten-year period, Napolitano paints a vibrant picture of daily life in a low-income neighbourhood of Guadalajara. "Migration, Mujercitas, and Medicine Men" portrays the personal experiences of the neighbourhood's residents while engaging with important questions about the nature of selfhood, subjectivity, and community identity, as well as the tensions of modernity and its discontents in Mexican society.
