About this title

Synopsis:

This book is one in a three volume general history of Mexico, comprising (I) the PreConquest period to 1521, (II) the Colonial period from 1521 to 1821, and (III) the National period from 1821-present. These books give a comprehensive narrative and analysis of Mexican history, focusing especially on political, economic, and social organization. Balancing both a 'bottom-up'(popular) and a 'top-down' (elite) perspective, they seek, where possible, to locate Mexico within broader, comparative patterns of historical change and conflict.

Review:

"The best Anglophone synoptic history of Mexico...Knight's volumes offer both unity of approach and authorial voice and a considerable level of detail...The dry humour and invocations of other histories, not to mention the sparkling writing, make the book a delight to read...a book that displays both high sophistication and accessibility." Eric Van Young, University of California at San Diego, The International History Review

"...an essential resource not only for historians of Mexico and Latin America but also of the European overseas expansion. Knight's work represents scholarly synthesis as its best: it offers both information and interpretation and is upheld by a massive body of documentation." Bulletin of the Society of Spanish & Portuguese History

Professor Knight's new book is a fine one. It is a piece of scholarship well-presented, interesting, and very suggestive." Itinerario

"Knight .... has written a general history of Mexico that synthesizes a rich base of published sources... Recommended." Choice
