Francisco Javier Gómez Carpinteiro
2008 Perfiles Latinoamericanos  
The article deals with spatial effects and the creation of social subjects in the historical formation of the postrevolutionary State. From an ethnographic perspective, it discusses the importance of sociology and history for understanding the ways that neoliberal policies are currently understood and contested in rural areas. The exposition is illustrated through a case from southwest Puebla, Mexico, in which peasants have become themselves immersed in complex processes of modernization and regulation.
