Mexico: From Montezuma to NAFTA, Chiapas, and Beyond

Front Cover
Brassey's, 1996 - Dogs - 227 pages
In this fascinating thousand-year history of America's controversial and rapidly changing neighbor, a leading expert on Latin America explains how Mexico's present and future flow directly from its past. Going well beyond analyses of recent crises, Mexico is an engrossing introduction to the Indian civilizations, the harsh rule of the Spaniards, social violence and revolution, and the country's mercurial relationship with the United States up to the present.
