"This solid reference introduces our southern neighbor in language that is accessible to high school students, but has enough scope and content to be helpful for assignments and studies at the undergraduate level." - Library Journal
"The two volumes provide an honest overview of the third-largest U.S. trading partner, a country in turbulence where corruption and poverty rule. However, although such issues are not ignored, the editors have been successful in delivering a more balanced look, paying considerable attention to popular culture, traditional folklore, and the depth of the fine arts. . . . Well presented, this set offers a clear picture of contemporary Mexico and is recommended for highschool and academic libraries." - Booklist
"Articles are concise and easy to read. . . . This new set could be useful for undergraduate collections desiring more timely information. Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice
