Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the dictatorship of Porfirio Dand#237;az, from 1876 to 1911, Mexico underwent modernization, producing a fierce struggle between the traditional and the new and exacerbating class antagonisms. William H. Beezley's absorbing social history of the Porfirian era, Judas at the Jockey Club, examines a broad range of topics from sports to technology as well as the traditional Easter-time Judas burnings that became a primary focus of the strife during these years.

About the Author

William H. Beezley is the Neville G. Penrose Professor of Latin American Studies at Texas Christian University.
