Mexico's political, social, and economic landscapes have shifted in very striking ways in recent years, and the country now moves cautiously forward in the twenty-first century. Revised to address these remarkable transformations, The Course of Mexican History, now in its ninth edition, offers a completely up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey from the pre-Columbian times to the present.
The leading textbook in its field, The Course of Mexican History, Ninth Edition, is indispensable for students of Mexican history, politics, economics, and culture. 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's modern 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.
