Overview

Increasingly, the modern era of Mexican history (c. 1750 to the present) is attracting the attention of Mexican and international scholars. Significant studies have appeared for most of the major regions and Yucatán, in particular, has generated an unusual appeal and an abundant scholarship. This book surveys major trends in Yucatán’s currents in Mexican historiography, and suggest new departures for regional and local-level research.
            Rather than compiling lists of sources around given subject headings in the manner of many historiographies, the author seeks common ground for analysis in the new literature’s preoccupation with changing relations of land, labor, and capital and their impact on regional society and culture. Joseph proposes a new periodization of Yucatán’s modern history which he develops in a series of synthetic essays rooted in regional political economy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Joseph’s manuscript is an important original work of scholarship which will become a necessary point of departure for not only academics interested in modern Yucatán, but also for scholars concerned with regional and revisionist studies throughout Latin America. This is not only the first historiography of Yucatán; it is exhaustive.” - Allen Wells, Appalachian State University
