- KurzbeschreibungScience has been one of the most powerful tools for <br>the development of modern nations. However, since it <br>has had a differential evolution in different <br>cultures, its forms of transmission defined the ways <br>in wich it was implanted in different societies. This<br>book explores, through the Mexican example, the <br>first attempt to embody modern microbiology by a <br>Latin American country. It shows how a combination <br>of political, economic and personal interests <br>sometimes came to overshadow the process. The <br>demonised Porfirio Diaz (president of Mexico 1880-<br>1911) and his political circle played a critical <br>role in this process. Dictatorship, Revolution, <br>personal animosities and scientific naivety became <br>important features of the game, to the advantage of <br>European countries (principally Great Britain, <br>France and Germany) which always found ways to <br>preserve their supremacy over 'the others', that is <br>those other trying to be 'modern like the <br>Europeans'. This work is addresed to historians and <br>sociologists of science, historians of Latin <br>America, and every person interested in cultural <br>colonialism, the transmission of knowledge, and the <br>history of Mexico.
