This is a great textbook and I thought it was well written. The subject matter can be exciting to read about at times and each chapter explores a given period methodically and without bias. My only criticism is that the sections on modern times are very compact and issues like the oil cartels and drug complex (carefully chosen labels) are barely discussed at all compared to the very long and detailed sections on the Porfiriato and revolution. If you're into the subject then this is the book for you.

This is a great book for learning Mexican history if you have no previous knowledge or have a class that requires this. I would recommend it to anyone even if you don't have a class just to get more knowledge.

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.

The best academic book on Mexican History written. I use it to teach one of my college classes. The reviews from the students who use the book have been fantastic.

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