Mexican History is a comprehensive and innovative primary source reader in Mexican history from the pre-Columbian past to the neoliberal present. Chronologically organized chapters facilitate the book's assimilation into most course syllabi. Its selection of documents thoughtfully conveys enduring themes of Mexican history (land and labor, indigenous people, religion, and state formation) while also incorporating recent advances in scholarly research on the frontier, urban life, popular culture, race and ethnicity, and gender. Student-friendly pedagogical features include contextual introductions to each chapter and each reading, lists of key terms and related sources, and guides to recommended readings and Web-based resources.

Review:

“What a thrilling voyage across five centuries of Mexican history! The editors have struck an ideal balance between fundamental texts and lesser-known sources that bring to life the everyday experiences, social structures, and political watersheds from the conquest to the present. Instructors, students, and anyone interested in Mexico will find it an indispensable collection of the voices that have forged the Mexican nation.”
—Christopher Boyer, University of Illinois at Chicago

 


“An excellent tool to teach and discover Mexican history, this book reflects the breadth and depth of the editors’ own research. The selection of texts is both rigorous and imaginative. It entails both a long durée view of Mexican history and a careful sensibility for the diversity of voices and textual sources that are necessary to understand that history. It will engage students and generate fruitful conversations in the classroom and beyond.”
—Pablo Piccato, ColumbiaUniversity
