Very interesting recollections and/or opinions of historians on the events of Mexican history. Just the story about Aztecs and their culture worth buying it. I had a certain opinion (like we all do), but after reading it I know it was baseless and I didn't know dang about it... It is way more complicated that most of the people seem to think.
Some of the articles include actual historical pieces and can be a bit tedious for a modern reader to swallow, but majority of the content is very well-thought-of and composed of interesting and captivating features. If you interested in Chicano studies, I would highly recommend this book - it talks about a lot of nuances (like soldaderas for example) that are usually overlooked in regular books on the subject. It has some sort of spirit to it that let you not just read it as a book, but actually makes you understand what people felt as they were going through events of Mexican history.
