Pressestimmen 'Provides the best map for this confusing situation published to date.'--Humanities-Sozial-Und-Kulturgeschichte Klappentext In Mexico's YucatAn peninsula it is commonly held that the population consists of two ethnic communities: Maya Indians and descendants of Spanish conquerors. As a result the history of the region is usually seen in terms of conflict between conquerors and conquered that too often ignores the complexity of interaction between these groups and the complex nature of identity within them. Yet despite this prevailing view most speakers of the Yucatec Maya language reject being considered Indian and refuse to identify themselves as Maya. Wolfgang Gabbert maintains that this situation can be understood only by examining the sweeping procession of history in the region. In 'Becoming Maya' he has skillfully interwoven history and ethnography to trace 500 years of Yucatec history covering colonial politics the rise of plantations nineteenth-century caste wars and modern reforms--always with an eye toward the complexities of ethnic categorization. According to Gabbert class has served as a self-defining category as much as ethnicity in the YucatAn and although we think of caste wars as struggles between Mayas and Mexicans he shows that each side possessed a sufficiently complex ethnic makeup to rule out such pat observations. Through this overview Gabbert reveals that Maya ethnicity is upheld primarily by outsiders who simply assume that an ethnic Maya consciousness has always existed among the Maya-speaking people. Yet even language has been a misleading criterion since many people not considered Indian are native speakers of Yucatec. By not taking ethnicity for granted he demonstrates that the Maya-speaking population has never been a self-conscious community and that the criteriaemployed by others in categorizing Mayas has changed over time. Grounded in field studies and archival research and boasting an exhaustive bibliography 'Becoming Maya' is the first English-language study that examines the roles played by ethnicity and social inequality in YucatAn history. By revealing the highly nuanced complexities that underlie common stereotypes it offers new insights not only into Mesoamerican peoples but also into the nature of interethnic relations in general.
