Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Sugar, coffee, corn, and chocolate have long dominated the study of Central American commerce, and researchers tend to overlook one other equally significant commodity: alcohol. Often illicitly produced and consumed, aguardiente (distilled sugar cane spirits or rum) was central to Guatemalan daily life, though scholars have often neglected its fundamental role in the country s development. Throughout world history, alcohol has helped build family livelihoods, boost local economies, and forge nations. The alcohol economy also helped shape Guatemala s turbulent categories of ethnicity, race, class, and gender, as these essays demonstrate. Established and emerging Guatemalan historians investigate aguardiente s role from the colonial era to the twentieth century, drawing from archival documents, oral histories, and ethnographic sources. Topics include women in the alcohol trade, taverns as places of social unrest, and tension between Maya and State authority. By tracing Guatemala s past, people, and national development through the channel of an alcoholic beverage, Distilling the Influence of Alcohol opens new directions for Central American historical and anthropological research.

Synopsis :

Sugar, coffee, corn, and chocolate have long dominated the study of Central American commerce, and researchers tend to overlook one other equally significant commodity: alcohol. Often illicitly produced and consumed, aguardiente (distilled sugar cane spirits or rum) was central to Guatemalan daily life, though scholars have often neglected its fundamental role in the country’s development.
          Throughout world history, alcohol has helped build family livelihoods, boost local economies, and forge nations. The alcohol economy also helped shape Guatemala’s turbulent categories of ethnicity, race, class, and gender, as these essays demonstrate. Established and emerging Guatemalan historians investigate aguardiente’s role from the colonial era to the twentieth century, drawing from archival documents, oral histories, and ethnographic sources. Topics include women in the alcohol trade, taverns as places of social unrest, and tension between Maya and State authority.
          By tracing Guatemala’s past, people, and national development through the channel of an alcoholic beverage, Distilling the Influence of Alcohol opens new directions for Central American historical and anthropological research.

From the Back Cover:

“This important collection of essays creatively uses the prism of alcohol to increase our understanding of Guatemala’s role in the broader Atlantic world and to unravel the complex negotiations that shaped the construction of this diverse regional context.”—Frederick H. Smith, author of Caribbean Rum: A Social and Economic History

 

“With case studies from Mam, Q’anjob’al, Kaqchikel, and African American communities, this volume provides fine-grained historical accounts that enrich our understanding of everyday life in Guatemala while providing provocative interpretive takes on their implications.”—Todd Little-Siebold, College of the Atlantic

 

Sugar, coffee, corn, and chocolate have long dominated the study of Central American commerce so much so that researchers tend to overlook one other equally significant commodity: alcohol.

A marker of social position and cultural identity, a crucial component in community and state building, and a commodity around which different cultural traditions and policing policies developed and evolved, aguardiente (distilled sugar cane spirits or rum)—often illicitly produced and consumed—was central to Guatemalan daily life. But scholars have often neglected its fundamental role in the country’s development.

The contributors to this volume are most concerned with understanding what alcohol—its production, sale, and consumption—meant to the servants, peasants, workers, professionals, and elites who lived in the locales where it was produced. Drawing from archival documents, oral histories, and ethnographic sources, they examine how aguardiente affected lives and the formation of communities, colony, and finally nation, providing an opportunity to examine closely the give and take between power brokers and subordinates.

Spanning nearly two hundred years of history, topics discussed include women in the alcohol trade, taverns as places of social unrest, and tensions between Maya and State authority. By tracing Guatemala’s past, people, and national development through the channel of a single alcoholic beverage, Distilling the Influence of Alcohol opens new directions for Central American historical and anthropological research.
