This critical anthology of writings by Carlos Monsiváis represents a foundational set of texts by an exceptional (yet under‑translated) Mexican cultural critic. Fatefully, Faithfully Feminist situates the urgencies of social movements as they developed in real time. The essays span from 1973 to 2008 and analyze the role of women in a patriarchal culture from pre‑Colombian times to the present. This critical edition offers extensive annotation and cultural background to understand the cogent, but particularly Mexican, arguments that MonsivÁis makes, many of which are extremely relevant in today's political economy in the U.S. and the world.
