Summary
"Americo Paredes, in a distinguished career spanning the last forty years, has often set the pace and the standard in the two fields with which he is most strongly identified: folklore and Chicano studies. In folklore, he has been instrumental in establishing a new theoretical and methodological framework; in Chicano studies, he has exerted a seminal influence, inspiring an entire generation of scholars."--BOOK JACKET. "For this book, the noted folklorist Richard Bauman has selected eleven of Americo Paredes's most significant scholarly articles. The selected articles, first published during the years 1958-1987, faithfully reflect the depth and breadth of Paredes's scholarship, as well as the rigor and eloquence of his writing. They represent scholarly discourse at its best: at once erudite and clear, demanding yet accessible, rich in both substance and style."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout his career, Paredes has centered his work on the folklore and culture of the Lower Rio Grande Border of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. His studies have always been contextualized, though, by a deep knowledge of Greater Mexico, and by the comparative scope of the folklorist. The essays collected here illustrate the transdisciplinary richness of Paredes's perspective - a synthesis of folkloric, anthropological, literary, and historical theory and method. They also demonstrate the revisionist power of his analysis, which challenges traditionalist conceptions and constructions of Texas-Mexican culture, the social base of folklore, and folklore genres."--BOOK JACKET. "Paredes is best known for his studies of the corrido, and several articles on this ballad form are included in the collection. Other essays focus variously on decimas, jokes, legends, and the "neighborly names" of ethnic slurs. More general subjects are also addressed, including the nature of the ethnographic encounter, machismo in the United States and Mexico, and the clash of cultures along the Lower Rio Grande Border. What emerges is perhaps the most well wrought and subtle portrait to date of the life and culture of the Mexican American people."--BOOK JACKET. "An introduction by Richard Bauman discusses the principal themes and focuses of Paredes's work, and his substantive, theoretical, and methodological contributions to scholarship. In addition, the volume includes a complete bibliography of Paredes's scholarly writings, compiled by Linda Adams."--BOOK JACKET
