Pressestimmen"It is hard to imagine a more successful collection of articles into one book than the six chapters here drawn from volumes 3, 5, and 7 of the recent Cambridge History of Latin America." History "Well-documented, using primary and secondary materials that reflect familiarity with Mexican, European and U.S. sources, the six authors review the most salient features of the political and economic development of Mexico, 1821-1988...[It] reflects the obvious advantages of tightly crafted chapters written by acknowledged specialists of each era of Mexican history and assurances that they conizant of the traditional interpretations and themes as well as the trendy ones...[A] useful work for anyone who wishes to go beyond a superficial understanding of Mexico during the last 170 years or so." George D. Beelen, Journal of Third World Studies
