Mexico is a country of fascinating contrasts-glorious history and tumultuous politics, extraordinary culture and desperate poverty, ancient traditions and rapid modernization. Yet despite the growing curiosity about Mexico due to increased trade and commerce, as well as increased tourism and immigration, there is presently no up-to-date, accessible history of Mexico for general readers. The Oxford History of Mexico, edited by Michael Meyer and William Beezley, is a comprehensive, lucidly written, and fully current narrative history by twenty of the most esteemed historians of Mexico writing today. Drawing on radical changes in scholarship on Mexico over the past 15 years, The Oxford History of Mexico covers all aspects of the rich history of Mexico from precolonial times to the present. Exploring politics, religion, technology, modernization, ethnicity, colonialism, ecology, the arts, mass media, and popular culture, The Oxford History of Mexico provides a wealth of information for all readers interested in this remarkable country. Fully illustrated, with black and white photos throughout and a sixteen page colour insert, suggestions for future reading, an index, and a glossary, this is the fullest and most engaging history of Mexico available today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Distinguished historians Meyer and Beezley have brought together an outstanding collection of essays on Mexican history, culture, and society....The individual contributions are crisp and stimulating; each stands well on its own and can be assigned and read singly with profit. Editors and authors have so nicely meshed these contributions one to the next that the book can be assigned or read almost as a single, comprehensive overview of centuries of Mexico history.--Choice "Excellent selection of authors."--Roberto M. Salmon, University of Texas--Pan American "Excellent survey of Mexico's history with magnificent contributions by specialists."--Stefano Varese, University of California at Davis "A splendid work! The Oxford History of Mexico sets the standard for history textbooks, bar none."--Vicki Ruiz, author of From Out of the Shadows: Mexican Women in Twentieth-Century America and Professor of History and Chair of the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies at Arizona State University
