Southwest Center Series

This series publishes important new books about the southwestern United States, northwestern Mexico, and the region of the border between Mexico and the United States. The series comprises exemplary monographs, translations, editions of important documents, reissues of previously published works, and books of general interest in a variety of fields, especially in history, anthropology, geography, sociology, and literary studies.

A research unit of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences of the University of Arizona, the Southwest Center has a threefold mission: to sponsor and facilitate research on the Greater Southwest, to publish exemplary work growing from that research, and to act in service to citizens of the region through programs of teaching and outreach. In all three areas special emphasis is given to strengthening individual and institutional ties to our colleagues at universities and cultural centers in the Republic of Mexico. The Center’s activities are based in three disciplines—ethnoecology, architecture, and folklore-and extend into five broad areas: native peoples of the Mexican northwest; contemporary cultural studies and folklore of the region; ethnobotany/ecology/rural development of the region; history of anthropology; and architectural cultures of the Southwest.

The Southwest Center Series carries out the mission of the Center by contributing to scholarship and research on diverse cultures native to the Southwest, and offering the larger world the Center’s and University’s regional interest and expertise.
