Title: The History of Mexico

ISBN : 1403962588
Author : Burton Kirkwood
Publisher : Palgrave Macmillan
Media : Paperback
SKU MIX31-U31-P3-PAL4-44010


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;Dry, impersonal and filled with facts, the latest addition to the Greenwood Histories of the Modern Nations series often reads like an over-long encyclopedia entry. Kirkwood, a professor of history at the University of Evansville, Indiana, divides the volume under subheadings like &doublequote;Geography,&doublequote; &doublequote;Population and Language,&doublequote; &doublequote;Wage Labor&doublequote; and &doublequote;Colonial Economic Order.&doublequote; His most vivid chapters cover the Spanish conquest of the Aztec people and are rife with compelling details about that period's brutality. For example, he explains that Aztecs sacrificed humans to their gods because they believed that &doublequote;shooting a victim with arrows so that his blood dripped on to the ground was ... a manner by which to revitalize the soil.&doublequote; Kirkwood occasionally presents his opinions as fact, as in his discussion of NAFTA and the &doublequote;Americanization&doublequote; of Mexico. He also provides very little detail about Mexico's thriving arts communities and its church life; Frida Kahlo, for example, is mentioned in a closing chapter on the &doublequote;Notable People in the History of Mexico&doublequote; but doesn't have a place in the main narrative. The volume does, however, give a comprehensive overview of the military and economic history of the U.S.'s southern neighbor-which makes it all the more unfortunate that Kirkwood decided to close his chronicle with Mexico's 1997 election. He leaves for other histories the dramatic events of the past seven years, including President Vicente Fox's overturning of the powerful Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in 2000.&newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.&newline;&newline;&newline;Book Description&newline;&newline;This narrative history of Mexico through 1998 will readers understand the lively and sometimes turbulent history of our neighbor to the south. Surveying Mexico from the arrival of the first humans in the Western Hemisphere to current issues at the turn of the new century, this work dispels many of the stereotypes about Mexico, its history, and its people. The sweep of the narrative transports the reader from Mexico's great cultural past to current issues such as the war on drugs, participation in the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the search for political stability as it enters the 21st century.
