Abstract

Through deep archival research and ambitious synthesis, Backroads Pragmatists aims to illuminate how nation-building in post-revolutionary Mexico unmistakably influenced the civil rights movement and democratic politics in the United States. Zalfa Feghali is impressed by Flores’ contribution, which convincingly traces the legacy of Mexican state policies as resonating beyond Mexico’s northern border and compelling shows a narrative of friendships and intellectual relationships between social scientists in both the US and Mexico.
