Reviews ” Radio in Revolution  adeptly addresses a glaring oversight in the historiography of twentieth-century Mexico: the interplay between radio technology and the Mexican Revolution (1910-40).”–Jürgen Buchenau, coauthor of  The Once and Future Revolution: Social Upheaval and the Negotiation of Rule during Mexico’s Long Twentieth Century  , “In Radio in Revolution , the author uncovers the essential role of radio technologies in the consolidation of state power in Mexico between the late 1890s and the 1930s. . . . Castro compels readers to remember the importance of the technology behind state power, something as consequential in our own times as it was during the early twentieth century.”– Historian, “This book should be of great interest to historians of Mexico and Latin America, to students of comparative nation-building projects, and of course to historians of radio itself. It is well worth a careful read.”–Edward Beatty, Pacific Historical Review, ” Radio in Revolution fills a major gap in the historiography of Mexico’s telecommunications and early broadcasting industries. Castro raises the bar for studies of media and nation building during Mexico’s tumultuous revolution.”–Jos Luis Ortiz Garza, author of Una radio entre dos reinos, “Castro depicts a significant continuity from Porfirio Daz to Plutarco Elas Calles in governmental use of radio technology to consolidate centralization. The Mexican Revolution, prototype for all twentieth-century social revolutions, was also the first war in which radio served a major military purpose.”–Robert H. Claxton, author of From “Parsifal” to Peron: Early Radio in Argentina, 1920-1944, ” Radio in Revolution adeptly addresses a glaring oversight in the historiography of twentieth-century Mexico: the interplay between radio technology and the Mexican Revolution (1910-40).”–Jrgen Buchenau, coauthor of Mexico’s Once and Future Revolution: Social Upheaval and the Challenge of Rule since the Late Nineteenth Century, “This work has the potential to cause scholars to rethink the importance of technological savvy and acquisition, mainly radio, for Mexico during its revolution and postrevolutionary era. Castro’s decision to tackle radio developments during the Porfiriato and through the revolution renders a very rich analysis.”–Celeste Gonzlez de Bustamante, author of Muy Buenas Noches: Mexico, Television, and the Cold War
