Well organized and well written.

And often the book gets bogged down in mundane details instead of focusing on the big picture and identifying important themes.

I'm sure it had that smell that new books have.

For a college professor, this book will be enjoyable. But for any college student taking a class on Mexican history as a requirement will find themselves laboring over a needlessly difficult text. The book over-emphasizes on an excessively showy, pedantic writing prose and not enough effort is put towards clarity and coherence. I often found myself rereading a paragraph 2 - 3 times just to understand it. And often the book gets bogged down in mundane details instead of focusing on the big picture and identifying important themes. A book should strive to inspire interest in the reader, but this book, with all its tedium accounted for, will just bore the reader to death and the reader ultimately gains no interest in Mexican history whatsoever.

Well organized and well written. Great college text for survey or upper level sections. Pictures and maps greatly enhance narrative.

I ordered this book for a 3000-level course in Mexican history. I found this book so difficult to read, incoherent, and non-student-friendly. I do not consider myself a poor reader. I am an author myself (Notarial Practice in the State of Florida, 2010), and pride myself on my exceptional reading and writing skills. But this book clearly seems to be written for persons who already have knowledge in Mexican history. Students like myself, who, although having a course of study founded in history, do not have the preexisting knowledge in the subject matter, will find this book to be extremely difficult. I often find myself having to read the same paragraph 4 times and still not understanding it, and I have never had such an issue with any other text.

It is clear that this book was intended as a textbook, yet it does not have any of the features that make a textbook student-friendly, such as footnoted vocabulary terms (instead, the book seems to expect the reader to already know the meaning of obscure Mexican terms), chapter outlines or summaries, a glossary, etc. Section summaries would be extremely helpful since I would often finish a section and not understand the main point of the section.

In my opinion, this is a book written by experts for experts, and is not one I would recommend for student use.

Amazing service i ordered my book on Friday, got the expedited delivery,and i got it by Monday.

On the description it said that the book was in good conditions and i think its great! a little worn around the edges but that happens with any book. There was little to no writing on it.

It's GREAT for the amount i paid!
