Description

Mexico's political, social, and economic landscapes have shifted in very striking ways in recent years, and the country now moves cautiously into the twenty-first century. The Course of Mexican History has been updated and revised to address these remarkable transformations. This eighth edition offers a completely up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey from pre-Columbian times to the present. For this new edition, the authors have streamlined the text, making it more concise and readable without diluting its broad scope. The book now features an updated section evaluating the presidency of Vicente Fox from 2000 to 2006 and a sixteen-page color insert that vividly illustrates the links between Mexico's history and arts. It also includes 200 photos and drawings, thirteen maps for ease of reference, and an appendix listing all Mexican heads of state, from Tenoch through Fox. The leading textbook in its field, The Course of Mexican History is indispensable for students of Mexican history, politics, economics, and culture.show more
