Recensie s Rick A. Lopez tells the fascinating story of how folk art produced by anonymous potters, weavers, and wood carvers became a proud symbol of Mexico's authentic national identity' p. His excellent monograph advances our understanding of Mexico's cultural revolution-the state policies, artistic movements, and commercial developments that transformed a regionally fragmented postwar society into a unified nationstate with an ethnically inclusive national identity.
It is an impressive interdisciplinary study that adds much to our appreciation of modern Mexican culture and society. It should gain an audience among scholars of state formation beyond Mexico or Latin America.

This fascinating and richly illustrated book is a fitting testimony to over a decade of exhaustive research and careful writing. It will surely serve as a model for future work.
Crafting Mexico represents a culminating moment in these inquiries. Better than any study I know, it wrestles with the complex process whereby Mexico transformed itself from a fragmented society, driven by regional loyalties, linguistic and cultural particularism, and caudillo politics, into one of the hemisphere's most unified nations. Part of the answer, Rick A. Lopez argues masterfully, lies in a surprisingly contingent aesthetic and political process that embraced foreign and local actors, cosmopolitan intellectuals and indigenous crafts producers, and a panoply of state and private initiatives.
Deftly integrating analytical and spatial dimensions, and bridging temporal boundaries, Crafting Mexico is a substantial achievement. Its linkage of local, national, and transnational history is exemplary. Alegre, History: Reviews of New Books Crafting Mexico is a major contribution to the growing literature on nation, revolution, and indigenismo in postrevolutionary Mexico.

Their efforts resulted in an "ethnicized" interpretation of Mexicanness that intentionally incorporated elements of folk and indigenous culture. In this rich history, Rick A. Lopez explains how thinkers and artists, including the anthropologist Manuel Gamio, the composer Carlos Chavez, the educator Moises Saenz, the painter Diego Rivera, and many less-known figures, formulated and promoted a notion of nationhood in which previously denigrated vernacular arts-dance, music, and handicrafts such as textiles, basketry, ceramics, wooden toys, and ritual masks-came to be seen as symbolic of Mexico's modernity and national distinctiveness.
Lopez examines how the nationalist project intersected with transnational intellectual and artistic currents, as well as how it was adapted in rural communities. He provides an in-depth account of artisanal practices in the village of Olinala, located in the mountainous southern state of Guerrero. Since the s, Olinala has been renowned for its lacquered boxes and gourds, which have been considered to be among the "most Mexican" of the nation's arts. Crafting Mexico illuminates the role of cultural politics and visual production in Mexico's transformation from a regionally and culturally fragmented country into a modern nation-state with an inclusive and compelling national identity.
