Overview


In this concise thousand-year history, one of the world’s foremost scholars on Latin America explains how Mexico’s present and future flow directly from its past. Going well beyond a comprehensive description of recent crises, Mexico provides an introduction to the early Indian civilizations, the harsh rule of the Spaniards, historic violence and revolution, and a tumultuous relationship with the United States. Professor Suchlicki suggests seven major recurring patterns in Mexican history and convincingly describes their contribution to Mexico’s current and future difficulties. This new edition also covers the electoral defeat of the PRI, the longest-ruling party in the world, and the prospects for democracy in Mexico and for U.S.-Mexican relations. Mexico is essential reading for anyone seeking an up-to-date perspective on America’s neighbor and trading partner.
