This single volume reference resource offers students, scholars, and general readers alike an in-depth background on Mexico, from the complexity of its pre-Columbian civilizations to its social and political development in the context of Western civilization.


* Explains how Mexico's modern identity is defined by its status as an economically developing country sharing a large contiguous land border with a highly developed global superpower, the United States

* Demonstrates the richness and global reach of Mexico's cultural and linguistic influence through the Western Hemisphere

* Enables readers to understand how Mexico's history has been shaped by fierce revolutionary nationalism-a tendency that is now tempered by a desire for integration and leadership in the global community of nations

* Includes "Day in the Life" features that portray the specific daily activities of various people in the country, from high school students to working class people to professionals, thereby providing readers insight into daily life in the country
