Overview

Mexico's political, social, and economic landscapes have shifted in very striking ways in recent years and the country now moves cautiously forward in the twenty-first century. Revised to address these remarkable transformations, The Course of Mexican History, now in its tenth edition, offers a completely up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey from the pre-Columbian times to the present.

The leading textbook in its field, The Course of Mexican History, Tenth Edition, is indispensable for students of Mexican history, politics, economics, and culture.

Drawing on both classic and current sources, this book provides a wide-ranging survey of Mexican history from the pre-Columbian period to the present.
