What People are Saying About This

Henry C. Schmidt

"The idea of looking at identity as myth and the problem of time and memory in the complicated formation of historical consciousness is freshly interpreted. . . . This is a major study in the history of Mexican ideas."

John Tutino

"Florescano has a unique ability to . . . present a sophisticated analysis clearly and concisely—making it accessible to nonspecialists, yet still challenging other scholars. . . . [The book] raises important questions not only about history—but about why we write and study history."
