Description: "This book does a magnificent job of tracing the history of conjunto music and musicians, and does much more.... Pentilde;a presents a highly convincing explanation for conjunto music as an act of working-class self-affirmation and opposition to the upwardly aspirant middle class with its self-consciously Americanized orquesta music.... Fascinating and well-researched." American Anthropologist
