Through essays and images, this book tells of the different ways in which Mexico's past (the pre-Hispanic period, the conquest, the evangelization and the viceroyalty) was seen during the passionate, dramatic nineteenth century. It is a history peopled alike by the great figures of history and the humble heroes of historiography who were in charge of recovering the historical writings and documents of the country.
