Californios, Anglos, And The Performance Of Oligarchy In The U.S. West
de Andrew Gibb
Sobre o livro
Argues that the mid-nineteenth-century encounter between Anglos and californios - the Spanish-speaking elites who ruled Mexican California between 1821 and 1848 - resulted in both the Americanization of California and the ""Mexicanization"" of Americans. Employing performance studies methodologies in his analysis, Gibb traces how oligarchy evolved and developed in the region.
