Summary

Mexico's political, social, and economic landscapes have shifted in very striking ways in recent years, and the country now moves cautiously in the twenty-first century. The Course of Mexican History has been updated and revised to address these remarkable transformations. This ninth editionoffers a completely up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey from the pre-Columbian times to the present. The book provides a comprehensive history of Mexico in prose that is both accessible and well-written. This new edition features more coverage of women and gender, particularly in Mexico'smodern area, as well as new chapters on 20th century Mexico. Improved maps and coverage of transnational links between the U.S. and Mexico are also among new features of the ninth edition.
