The 1994 Zapatista uprising of Chiapas' Maya peoples against the Mexican government shattered the state myth that indigenous groups have been successfully assimilated into the nation. In this wide-ranging study of identity formation in Chiapas, Aída Hernández delves into the experience of a Maya group, the Mam, to analyze how Chiapas' indigenous peoples have in fact rejected, accepted, or negotiated the official discourse on "being Mexican" and participating in the construction of a Mexican national identity. Hernández traces the complex relations between the Mam and the national government from 1934 to the Zapatista rebellion. She investigates the many policies and modernization projects through which the state has attempted to impose a Mexican identity on the Mam and shows how this Maya group has resisted or accommodated these efforts. In particular, she explores how changing religious affiliation, women's and ecological movements, economic globalization, state policies, and the Zapatista movement have all given rise to various ways of "being Mam" and considers what these indigenous identities may mean for the future of the Mexican nation. The Spanish version of this book won the 1997 Fray Bernardino de Sahagún national prize for the best social anthropology research in Mexico.

Critically examining the fierce conflicts over an intense and increasingly prevalent form of strip mining,Combating Mountaintop Removal: New Directions in the Fight against Big Coaldocuments the changing relationships among the coal industry, communities, environment, and economy from the perspective of local grassroots activist organizations and their broader networks. Drawing on powerful personal testimonies of the hazards of mountaintop removal in Boone County, West Virginia, Bryan T. McNeil shows how Appalachian community coalitions have drawn important connections in their opposition to coal mining practices. Focusing on the grassroots activist organization Coal River Mountain Watch (CRMW), composed of individuals who have personal ties to the coal industry in the region, the study reveals a turn away from once-strong traditional labour unions. With the decline in membership and political power of the United Mine Workers Union in West Virginia, citizens have turned to alternative forms of activism to coordinate opposition to mountaintop removal mining, centring mainly on the industry's effect on community and the environment. The shift towards community organizing, particularly around environmental concerns, represents an effort to address social issues in a new social space outside of organized labour. By framing social and moral arguments in terms of the environment, these innovative hybrid social movements take advantage of environmentalism's higher profile in contemporary politics, compared to that of labour. In investigating the local effects of globalization and global economics,Combating Mountaintop Removaltracks the profound reimagining of social and personal ideas such as identity, history, and landscape and considers their roles in organizing an agenda for progressive community activism.
