As the anthropologist Claudio Lomnitz has written, “The elevation of Mexican intimacy with death to the center of national identity is but a moment within that history – within a history in which the key institutions of society are built around the claims of the fallen…people and a country whose fearless acquaintance with death shapes the very terms of its social impact.”
