Abstract

The fulcrum of Paul Eiss’ provocative volume-—and the concept that facilitates his interwoven understanding of community, popular politics, state formation, indigenous identity and memory-—is his interrogation of the term “el pueblo.” Previously scholars across a range of disciplines have privileged one or another of its connotations, emphasizing either a particular village or place; or focusing more abstractly on the notion of local or broader community; or equating the term with popular politics (as in, most famously, the slogan “el pueblo unido jamás será vencido!”).
