Resumen

Bastardos de la modernidad (Peter Lang, 2020), by Alexander Torres-Astacio, studies the influence of rock in contemporary Latin American societies, based on the bildungsroman or the training novel. His analysis includes works written in Mexico, Colombia and Argentina from the second half of the 20th century. Torres-Astacio proposes that both miscegenation and pre-Hispanic -not Western- currents of thought developed a youth counterculture that defied all prevailing nineteenth-century conventions, staging a new possibility of being in the world. In addition, this resistance also came before US imperialism, which transformed daily life and ways of being Latin American.
