A Look Inside
Reviews
Review Quotes
All of the articles are impressively researched and capture the critical themes facing the historiography of this highly complex and evolving period in Mexico's history.
The essays in this volume study aspects of Mexico's political process over time. In reading them one senses what Emmanuel LeRoy Ladurie discovered when he surveyed the peasants of Languedoc: that history is not linear, that historical processes expand and contract in accordance with many variables, that they breathe. In other words, they are alive. . . . We should not forget ”and the essays here force us to remember ”how much political exchange in newly independent Mexico concerned notions inherited, borrowed, and fashioned from abroad.
