The first half of the book discusses the arrival of the first peoples and their society, their eventual conquest by the Spanish, and Mexico's attempts at self-rule in the 19th century. The second half of the book concentrates on Mexico's history from Porfirio Diaz in 1876 through the revolutionary and modern periods. This second edition contains a chapter on events since the 2000 election.
