Abstract

Presidential address delivered to the Association's 61st annual meeting, Flagstaff, Arizona, October 16, 1998. A. delves into the origins, contruction, and meaning of the Mexican curio landscapes in Mexican border towns, especially of Ciudad Juárez, Tijuana, and Nogales. It began with the need to entice the American tourist back to Mexico after the repeal of prohibition in the USA. The construction, both material and imaginative, was largely fostered by the Mexican government. - (SLD)
