Still the leading survey text on Mexican history from the pre-Columbian period to the present, this thoroughly updated edition of The Course of Mexican History introduces a new co-author, Susan Deeds. This sixth edition offers a fresh understanding of pre-Columbian cultures by addressing trends in the fast-changing field of Mayan studies as well as new interpretations of the Classic and Post-Classic periods. The revised colonial sections incorporate recent scholarship on women and indigenous peoples, highlighting themes of daily life, popular culture, resistance, and contested social relationships among peoples of all ethnicities. An expanded treatment of the Salinas and Zedillo administrations chronicles recent transformations in Mexico's political and economic evolution. Mexico's struggle to democratize is assessed through discussions of violent political infighting within the government party, challenges from new political configurations, and the vicissitudes of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Lavishly illustrated throughout, this authoritative classic is indispensable to students interested in Mexican history, politics, and culture.
