Editorial Reviews


"The best Anglophone synoptic history of Mexico...Knight's volumes offer both unity of approach and authorial voice and a considerable level of detail...The dry humour and invocations of other histories, not to mention the sparkling writing, make the book a delight to read...a book that displays both high sophistication and accessibility." Eric Van Young, University of California at San Diego, The International History Review

" essential resource not only for historians of Mexico and Latin America but also of the European overseas expansion. Knight's work represents scholarly synthesis as its best: it offers both information and interpretation and is upheld by a massive body of documentation." Bulletin of the Society of Spanish & Portuguese History

Professor Knight's new book is a fine one. It is a piece of scholarship well-presented, interesting, and very suggestive." Itinerario

"Knight .... has written a general history of Mexico that synthesizes a rich base of published sources... Recommended." Choice

Book Description

This book is one in a three volume general history of Mexico, comprising (I) the PreConquest period to 1521, (II) the Colonial period from 1521 to 1821, and (III) the National period from 1821-present. These books give a comprehensive narrative and analysis of Mexican history, focusing especially on political, economic, and social organization. Balancing both a 'bottom-up'(popular) and a 'top-down' (elite) perspective, they seek, where possible, to locate Mexico within broader, comparative patterns of historical change and conflict.
