Re: QUERY: Readings on Guadalajara

Hi Sam,

I'm not sure if you're just looking for quick reads like articles/book chapters, but as a social/cultural historian I like Rafael Torres Sánchez, Revolución y vida cotidiana: Guadalajara, 1914-1934.

Perhaps overly specific for your needs, but I also like: María Teresa Fernández Aceves, “Guadalajaran Women and the Construction of National Identity,” in The Eagle and the Virgin: Nation and Cultural Revolution in Mexico, 1920-1940, ed. Mary Kay Vaughan and Stephen E. Lewis, 297-313.

Enjoy,
