Abstract

Book Reviews El Paso were destroyed and condemned, further marginalizing the city's poor. In addition, newspapers of the time treated epidemics, Mexican revolutionaries, and female political agitators interchangeably and symbolically fused disease and disorder. The ambitious attempt by McKiernan-González to trace the transnational trajectory of public health policy over a nearly one-hundred-year period is masterfully achieved through extensive binational research and a sharp lens into the evolving practice of public health evidenced by a case study approach. Moreover, readers are left with a pragmatic narrative that demonstrates the intersecting and divergent pathways of medical and political borders as medical officials, politicians, and the polities of both nations sought the protection of their respective interests. Lastly, we are privy to a classic and comprehensive understanding of the U.S.-Mexico border region as a space in constant transition yielding to the multiple factors that contribute to its existence. The vivid and rich narrative of Fevered Measures should reach both an academic and popular audience on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border. Texas Tech University Miguel A. Levario El Cinco de Mayo: An American Tradition. By David E. Hayes-Bautista. (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2012. Pp. 302. Illustrations, maps, notes, bibliography, index.
