Summary

The Course of Mexican History has long been the leading textbook in the Mexican history course market. This seventh edition offers an up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey of Mexican history from pre-Columbian times to the present. Topics covered include pre-Columbian cultures, such as the Incas and the Mayas; life in Mexico under Spanish rule; Mexican-American relations; and Mexico's long struggle to democratize. New to this edition is coverage of the 2000 elections and the first years of Vicente Fox's presidency. Lavishly illustrated throughout, the text features 250 photographs and drawings, and 14 maps for ease of reference. The book is indispensable for students interested in Mexican history, politics, and culture.
