Overview

The Course of Mexican History and Writing History / Edition 5

Still the leading book on Mexican history from the pre-Columbian periods to the present, this thoroughly updated sixth edition of The Course of Mexican History introduces a new co-author, Susan Deeds, and features a new emphasis on social and cultural history. It offers a new understanding of indigenous cultures, including revised discussions of pre-Columbian central Mexico and the Spanish conquest of Mexico, as well as an examination of new trends in the fast-changing field of Mayan studies.

Using recent scholarship and discoveries, the authors have expanded the sections on the historical background of Spanish conquistadors and the social, religious, and cultural history of Mexico's colonial period, with a particular emphasis on its impact on women and indigenous cultures. New research on the events and social grievances which led up to the independence movement are examined as well.
