Adapted from her dissertation, historian Gabriela Laveaga’s fascinating book fills in this crucial history and demonstrates, as other historians of science have recently done, that scientific discovery and knowledge production is not limited to trained scientists in sterile laboratories.
This work is an important contribution to the history of science, state formation, post-1940s Mexico, and to the study of Echevarria's presidency

This part of the Pill's history, Soto Laveaga argues, was so successfully erased from collective memory that even the rural culture in Oaxaca has forgotten its role in one of the most important scientific breakthroughs in recent history. The author's efforts to reinsert the role of barbasco pickers and rural Mexicans in 20th-century science is just the beginning, however, of her more nuanced argument that this same rural population was central to the Mexican's government's efforts to nationalize barbasco, as well as part of a political movement in which rural Mexicans made.

Merton Best Book prize in Science, Knowledge, and Technology Studies from the American Sociological Association.

Soto Laveaga traces the political, economic, and scientific development of the global barbasco industry from its emergence in the 1940s, through its appropriation by a populist Mexican state in 1970, to its obsolescence in the mid-1990s. She focuses primarily on the rural southern region of Tuxtepec, Oaxaca, where the yam grew most freely and where scientists relied on local, indigenous knowledge to cultivate and harvest the plant. Rural Mexicans, at first unaware of the pharmaceutical and financial value of barbasco, later acquired and deployed scientific knowledge to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies, lobby the Mexican government, and ultimately transform how urban Mexicans perceived them. By illuminating how the yam made its way from the jungles of Mexico, to domestic and foreign scientific laboratories where it was transformed into pills, to the medicine cabinets of millions of women across the globe, Jungle Laboratories urges us to recognize the ways that Mexican peasants attained social and political legitimacy in the twentieth century, and positions Latin America as a major producer of scientific knowledge.
