It is better than many history texts, but like all books of this type, it runs to the dry side.
George Aubrey
In short, for the general reader who wants to gain a readable and reliable overview of the panorama of Mexican history, Miller has done the reader a great favor.
CLYDE J. WILDER
The Appendix contains Demographic tables, a Spanish glossary,and an absolutely awesome chapter by chapter Bibliography.

Format: Paperback
Robert Ryal Miller's "Mexico: A History" is a reliable, readable survey history of Mexico from its pre-historic origins to the late 20th century. I have used the book as a text for a course on Mexican history for senior citizens. Almost unanimously the course particpants have rated the book very highly.
Miller has done the general reading public a favor by offering a reliable survey history of Mexico of about 375 pages. Its convenient length enables the general reader to gain a better understanding of our southern neighbor about whom many of us know little though with whom we share a 2,000-mile border. There are excellent, much longer books or multi-volume books on Mexican history, but their length makes them too daunting and sometimes too scholarly for the first-time reader of Mexican history to pick up. If after reading a sound history book of Miller's size, the general reader is moved to delve further into Mexican history, he or she can turn to longer books, with a basis established to assimilate more readily the greater detail of a longer history. In my research, I have found only one other recently published survey history of Mexico of the same convenient length which is also historically reliable; while that book is readable as well, I felt it was a little more technical than Miller's and perhaps assumed the uninformed reader would be able to grasp some of the historical concepts more quickly than the experience in my course has indicated.
Miller's book could have been made even more readable and useful if each chapter had begun with a brief introduction of the content to follow in the particular chapter and concluded with a brief summary at the chapter's end.

This book has been great in describing to the point main occurrences in Mexico's History. The cultural, the outside explorers, and local civil developments.
