9780882952635: Mexican Mosaic: A Brief History of Mexico

Our new brief text highlights Mexico's stunning geographical, ethnic, and social diversity. In the sixteenth century, diseases brought by the Spanish conquerors wiped out almost 90 per cent of the indigenous population. Since then, Mexico - first as a colony of Spain and, after 1821, as an independent nation - has exported thousands of tons of silver, affecting currencies and prices as far away as China and India. In the century following independence, Mexico was invaded six times by three different European nations (Britain, France, and Spain) as well as the United States, the latter conflict resulting in the loss of half of Mexico's territory. More recently, Mexico has played an ever more important part in the world economy. Focused primarily on the period since independence in 1821, this brief text effectively summarizes Mexico's rich history, delineating some of the major processes at the national level and hinting at regional and local counter-currents.

About the Author:

Jürgen Buchenau is Professor of History and Director of Latin American Studies at UNC Charlotte. He received his Ph.D. in History in 1993 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Review:

"For a number of reasons, Jürgen Buchenau's Mexican Mosaic is the most useful textbook that I have assigned in the past decade when teaching the history of Mexico. ... The book is well written, jargon-free, and engaging. In short, this is a straight-forward, student-friendly text that my entire class responded very favorably to." (John J. Dwyer, Duquesne University, for The Latin Americanist, 2009) "This compact textbook for undergraduate students of Latin American, world, and diplomatic history tackles Mexico's shifting political and economic landscape from European settlement to the present swiftly and deftly. ...easily digested by newcomers to Mexican history...animated by Buchenau's vivid prose and ability to move seamlessly between local, regional, national and international contexts...a highly effective introductory text." ( Bulletin of Latin American Research, 2010)
