An excellent book that will set a new standard for general histories of Mexico. . . . Well written, pithy, and thought-provoking. It is a sweeping, magisterial study that goes far beyond the usual pallid tone of most general histories of Mexico on either side of the border. As a student of Mexico, Ruiz has few peers, and this work will establish a new standard. --Alex M. Saragoza, University of California, Berkeley"
Hard-hitting without being doctrinaire, this vastly illuminating people's history gives value to the collective trauma of a nation decimated by Spanish colonial rule, betrayed by corrupt politicos and incompetent army chiefs, then manipulated into servile dependence on its neighbor to the north. "

I'm a bleeding-heart CA liberal from Concord, MA, and I like facts. Regrettably, to teach in the UC system, one must stoke the soothing flames of ethnic rage even if it means making things up.
