Dependent Origination

The Labyrinth of Solitude

这本号称了解墨西哥的最佳著作太难懂了。或者说它非常深奥,我不知道自己读懂了几分之一。它主要讲什么是墨西哥的identity。从pre columbian, 到conquest, 到revolution, 到reform, 横贯了墨西哥历史上的最主要的时期,并且把每个时期的主要思潮都详加解释和批判。同样的思辨作品,就算是用中文写的,一样是会很头疼,读得很慢,更不用说读英文的版本了。希望以后有时间可以再读过。

话又说回来,感觉把所有的mexican都换成chinese, 很多很多的篇章和分析都适用得很。第三世界国家的相似性,连我们的八八事件,都有墨西哥版本的说。作者关于该事件的成因/处理方式/后续影响的分析,同样适用于中国的counterpart。
