Abstract

In his new book Cartographies of Youth Resistance: Hip Hop, Punk, and Urban Autonomy in Mexico, sociocultural anthropologist Maurice Rafael Magaña explores the political role of urban youth in Oaxaca City during and after the social movement formed in 2006. There was a before and after this movement for the Indigenous and migrant youth of this city, one that the author categorizes as catalyzed by the “2006 Generation” (14). This book analyzes what happens when militarization, neoliberal development and criminalization of young activists collide with a strong political movement such as the one in Oaxaca.
