"¡Nuestra televisión es Disneylandia! ¡Es de hombres guapos y mujeres hermosas! ¡Vendemos sueños, no vendemos realidades!" EMILIO AZCÁRRAGA MILMO "¡Nuestra televisión es Disneylandia! ¡Es de hombres guapos y mujeres hermosas! ¡Vendemos sueños, no vendemos realidades!" EMILIO AZCÁRRAGA MILMO Desde su aparición en 2000, con más de 70 mil ejemplares vendidos, El Tigre se ha convertido en un clásico del periodismo contemporáneo en nuestro país: se trata de la primera biografía no autorizada de un hombre de negocios mexicano. Fruto de media década de investigación y de más de 200 entrevistas, El Tigre aborda no sólo la trayectoria de Emilio Azcárraga Milmo, sino que da cuenta de la historia de una nación desde la perspectiva del desarrollo de los medios de comunicación y su relación con las élites políticas. Se comprueba en esta edición revisada la gran vigencia del trabajo de Claudia Fernández y Andrew Paxman, con el que han contribuido de manera notable al continuo debate sobre la regulación de los medios, el feudalismo del sector privado y la influencia socio-cultural de Televisa. En un nuevo prefacio, se analizan, entre otros asuntos, el papel que desempeñó la televisora en el regreso del PRI a Los Pinos en 2012 y los retos que afronta el heredero del imperio: Azcárraga Jean. "Este libro demuestra cómo, en la segunda mitad del siglo XX, la presidencia sin límites del viejo sistema autoritario mexicano estuvo sostenida por dos monopolios: un partido corporativo de Estado -el PRI-, y una enorme empresa que se constituyó en la fuente principal, casi única, de noticias e interpretación de la realidad para el grueso de los mexicanos: Televisa." LORENZO MEYER, historiador y politólogo "No exagero si afirmo que Fernández y Paxman inauguran con esta obra un género del periodismo mexicano. La biografía inédita, sin prejuicios maniqueístas, explora por igual luces que sombras, debilidades que fortalezas." RICARDO ROCHA, periodista Nueva edición, revisada y actualizada

In the city of Puebla there lived an American who made himself into the richest man in Mexico. Driven by a steely desire to prove himself--first to his wife's family, then to Mexican elites--William O. Jenkins rose from humble origins in Tennessee to build a business empire in a country energized by industrialization and revolutionary change. In Jenkins of Mexico, Andrew Paxman presents the first biography of this larger-than-life personality. When the decade-long Mexican Revolution broke out in 1910, Jenkins preyed on patrician property owners and bought up substantial real estate. He suffered a scare with a firing squad and then a kidnapping by rebels, an episode that almost triggered a US invasion. After the war he owned textile mills and the country's second-largest bank, developed Mexico's most productive sugar plantation, and helped finance the rise of a major political family, the Ávila Camachos. During the Golden Age of Mexican cinema in the 1940s-50s, he lorded over the film industry with his movie theater monopoly and key role in production. Reputed as an exploiter of workers, a puppet-master of politicians, and Mexico's wealthiest industrialist, Jenkins was the gringo that Mexicans loved to loathe. After his wife's death, he embraced philanthropy and willed his entire fortune to a foundation named for her, which co-founded two prestigious universities and funded projects to improve the lives of the poor in his adopted country. Using interviews with Jenkins' descendants, family papers, and archives in Puebla, Mexico City, Los Angeles, and Washington, Jenkins of Mexico tells a contradictory tale of entrepreneurship and monopoly, fearless individualism and cozy deals with power-brokers, embrace of US-style capitalism and political anti-Americanism, and Mexico's transformation from semi-feudal society to emerging economic power.

The text highlights the history, achievements, and creations of the Mexican people, showing that Mexico, a nation of more than 100 million people, is an important player in both the Latin American and Caribbean regions and cannot be ignored.

This entertaining history of Cuba and its music begins with the collision of Spain and Africa and continues through the era of Miguelito Valdes, Arsenio Rodriguez, Benny More, and Perez Prado. It offers a behind-the-scenes examination of music from a Cuban point of view, unearthing surprising, provocative connections and making the case that Cuba was fundamental to the evolution of music in the New World. The ways in which the music of black slaves transformed 16th-century Europe, how the "claves" appeared, and how Cuban music influenced ragtime, jazz, and rhythm and blues are revealed. Music lovers will follow this journey from Andalucia, the Congo, the Calabar, Dahomey, and Yorubaland via Cuba to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Saint-Domingue, New Orleans, New York, and Miami. The music is placed in a historical context that considers the complexities of the slave trade; Cuba's relationship to the United States; its revolutionary political traditions; the music of Santeria, Palo, Abakua, and Vodu; and much more.

Since the late nineteenth century, art museums have played crucial social, political, and economic roles throughout Latin America because of the ways that they structure representation. By means of their architecture, collections, exhibitions, and curatorial practices, Latin American art museums have crafted representations of communities, including nation states, and promoted particular group ideologies. This collection of essays, arranged in thematic sections, will examine the varying and complex functions of art museums in Latin America: as nation-building institutions and instruments of state cultural politics; as foci for the promotion of Latin American modernities and modernisms; as sites of mediation between local and international, private and public interests; as organizations that negotiate cultural construction within the Latin American diaspora and shape constructs of Latin America and its nations; and as venues for the contestation of elitist and Eurocentric notions of culture and the realization of cultural diversity rooted in multiethnic environments.

From the arrival of Elvis in Mexico during the 1950s to the emergence of a full-blown counterculture movement by the late 1960s and into the 70s, Zolov uses rock to illuminate Mexican history. Zolov shows rock music as a commodity, with influences shaped by intellectuals, the state, and transnational capital as well as musicians and fans. It's a study of the political uses of culture in an authoritarian state.

Few Mexican musicians in the twentieth century achieved as much notoriety or had such an international impact as the popular singer and songwriter Agust?n Lara (1897-1970). Widely known as "el flaco de oro" ("the Golden Skinny"), this remarkably thin fellow was prolific across the genres of bolero, ballad, and folk. His most beloved "Granada", a song so enduring that it has been covered by the likes of Mario Lanza, Frank Sinatra, and Placido Domingo, is today a standard in the vocal repertory. However, there exists very little biographical literature on Lara in English. In Agust?n Lara: A Cultural Biography, author Andrew Wood's informed and informative placement of Lara's work in a broader cultural context presents a rich and comprehensive reading of the life of this significant musical figure. Lara's career as a media celebrity as well as musician provides an excellent window on Mexican society in the mid-twentieth century and on popular culture in Latin America. Wood also delves into Lara's music itself, bringing to light how the composer's work unites a number of important currents in Latin music of his day, particularly the bolero. With close musicological focus and in-depth cultural analysis riding alongside the biographical narrative, Agustin Lara: A Cultural Biography is a welcome read to aficionados and performers of Latin American musics, as well as a valuable addition to the study of modern Mexican music and Latin American popular culture as a whole.

Mexico City is one of Latin America’s cultural capitals, and one of the most vibrant urban spaces in the world. The Mexico City Reader is an anthology of "Cronicas"—short, hybrid texts that are part literary essay, part urban reportage—about life in the capital. This is not the "City of Palaces" of yesteryear, but the vibrant, chaotic, anarchic urban space of the1980s and 1990s—the city of garbage mafias, necrophiliac artists, and kitschy millionaires. Like the visitor wandering through the city streets, the reader will be constantly surprised by the visions encountered in this mosaic of writings—a textual space brimming with life and crowded with flâneurs, flirtatious students, Indian dancers, food vendors, fortune tellers, political activists, and peasant protesters. The essays included in this anthology were written by a panoply of writers, from well-known authors like Carlos Monsiváis and Jorge Ibagüengoitia to younger figures like Fabrizio Mejía Madrid and Juieta García González, all of whom are experienced practitioners of the city. The texts collected in this anthology are among the most striking examples of this concomitant "theory and practice" of Mexico City, that most delirious of megalopolises. “[An] exciting literary journey . . .”—Carolyn Malloy, Multicultural Review
