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.

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. A concise, balanced introduction for the general reader.-Roderic A. Camp, Latin American Ctr., Tulane Univ., New Orleans

    Skimpy on post-1930 Mexico

    While I found the book to be factual and consise, its treatment of post-1930 Mexico was spotty at best. While Mexico's culture is rooted life before the PRI, unfortunately the book did not take the time to more fully analyze the complexities of the PRI's rule and the achievements, scandals, and missed opportunities seen in each sexenio.
