"Here is a generous, up-to-date presentation of the colonial period that spills beyond the confines of 1519-1810 and modern Mexico's borders in welcome ways. Replete with illustrations and well-placed excerpts from primary sources, The Early History of Greater Mexico ranges widely and well across tithe, place, and big issues o f economy, class, race, ethnicity, gender; family, culture, and politics without losing the bright narrative threads of clash and accommodation in colonial experience." - William B. Taylor, Professor, Muriel McKevitt Sonne Chair in History, University of California, Berkeley
"For the first time we have a text on early Mexico that is both accessible and in tithe with the best of recent scholarship (to which the authors themselves have most significantly contributed). The book is in fact the first .such work on any individual country of Spanish America. Situtated within a specific framework which at the same time is broad enough to be a microcosm, it achieves a richer, more tangible, and at times more coherent view o f developments than is possible with texts covering all of Spanish America." - James Lockhart, Professor Emeritus of History, University of California, Los Angeles
