Contains papers from several 1992 conferences, directed toward a general audience wanting to learn more about the complexities of the US-Mexico relationship. Contributors concentrate less on technical details and more on explanations of events and individual and national motives. They focus on the Mexican experience, dissecting political, social, and economic differences between the countries and tracing the relationship from its beginnings to the present day. Subjects include the loss of Texas from a Mexican perspective, the US government versus the 1910-1917 Mexican Revolution, and Mexican immigration.
