Summaries
Long Description
This book is appropriate for Mexican History, 19th Century Mexican History, and 20th Century Mexican History courses. Based on the belief that people not institutions make history, this narrative of the history of Mexican people examines the challenges they have faced since independence, telling the story of their resiliency and creative character during the years of political and economic change. It examines national boundaries not as barriers, but as the setting of complex interactions resulting in the convergence of cultures; and, in so doing, reveals the Mexican experience not only in Mexico, but in what is today the southwestern United States.

Unpaid Annotation
This narrative on the history of Mexican people examines the challenges they have faced since independence, telling the story of their resiliency and creative character during the past two years of political and economic change. It examines the national boundary not as a barrier, but as the setting of complex interactions resulting in the convergence of cultures; and, in so doing, reveals the Mexican experience not only in Mexico, but in what is today the southwestern United States.Discusses the Mexican experience according to major political, economic, cultural, and social watersheds--the rhythms that affect the people--rather than the traditional presidential administrations. Provides historical insight into contemporary events in Mexico, taking into account the events of the presidential election of 1994, revelations of corruption involving President Salinar's brother, and the Zapatista Liberation Army. Reevaluates the Salinas government, and adds information on the Zedillo regime, recent cultural development in music and movies, and Mexican campaigns to create a ready reserve of troops. For historians.
