Synopsis : Written by one of the most promising young scholars on the Mexican intellectual scene, The Shadow of Ulysses attempts to reconnect the American and Mexican intellectual experiences by exploring historical as well as contemporary issues in both countries. The book's first chapters discuss the relationship between American and Mexican intellectuals in the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution and offer a sociological comparison of the 1960s intellectual generations in the United States and Mexico. Later chapters provide a critical assessment of two prominent Mexican public intellectuals well known to the American reader: Carlos Fuentes and Jorge Castaneda. The Shadow of Ulysses, the Mexican edition of which was awarded the Alfonso Reyes National Prize, offers a rare glimpse into the development of contemporary Mexican thought and reveals the under-recognized intellectual ties that existed between our two countries in the first half of the twentieth century.

Critique: It has been some time since anyone has seriously taken up the issue of intellectual life in Mexico, and La sombra de Ulises (The Shadow of Ulysses) is the first effort by either a Mexican or North American scholar to address the interrelationship, structurally speaking, of intellectuals in Mexico and the United States. For this reason alone, it is a welcome work... Aguilar Rivera's essays provide a readable, intriguing, and significant portrait of a neglected topic in cultural history. Hispanic American Historical Review Not only has it [The Shadow of Ulysses] found the strands of the dilemma that must be woven into a coherent whole. Not only does it propose alternatives for creating and strengthening communication that go beyond the barriers of language and combat 'the isolation and narrow-mindedness that has congealed down through the years'. Most of all, it inspires or should inspire researchers, academics and intellectuals from both sides to abandon their ivory towers and understand that it will be possible to build bridges only when 'we recognize that the river is both the Rio Grande and the Rio Bravo'. Voices Of Mexico This study will be a significant contribution to the field. It unearths or "remembers" an exchange of ideas ... that has never really been documented before. Scholars will find it fascinating ... to see how the ideas of key "public intellectuals" in a variety of disciplines play out, both in dialogue and in implementation, in a cross-cultural context. -- Tamara R. Williams, Pacific Lutheran University
