Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this stimulating and original monograph Hart (history, Univ. of Houston) argues that ``the Mexican Revolution constituted the first great Third World uprising against American economic, cultural, and political expansion,'' and suggests that the magnitude of American penetration of the Mexican economy has been seriously underestimated. This economic domination led to a breakdown of domestic agricultural production, rising interest rates, and recurrent fiscal crises, which helped to fuel conflicts between Mexico and the United States and among rival social groups in Mexico. Well written and well researched, this adds substantially to the history of the Mexican Revolution. Brian E. Coutts, Western Kentucky Univ. Lib., Bowling Green
