Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Suchlicki, former director of the North-South Center at the University of Miami, provides a well-written, comprehensive, historical narrative of Mexico from the time of the conquest through the Zedillo administration. Although the book focuses primarily on the period between 1500 and 1970, Suchlicki argues that many of the variables in the present crises can be found in Mexico's historical experience, and he specifically identifies a number of social, political, and economic themes that have characterized its political development, including regionalism, church-state conflict, U.S. influence, ethnic competition, and liberal-conservative dominance.
