Publisher Description

In 1540, Mexico was declared to be New Spain. With a diverse culture and great natural resources, it should have prospered like its northern neighbor. But Mexico's history includes political corruption, war, revolution, and grinding poverty. Why has the fate of Mexico been so different than that of the United States?

The World's Political Hot Spots Series explains the basis of conflicts in some of the world's most politically sensitive areas. Many of these regions are in today's headlines, and tensions have become violent in virtually all of them. Each presentation covers up to ten centuries of background, revealing how and why today's problems occur.

Easy to understand..

I am from Mexico city and its being so difficult for me to understand the behaivor of my own Paisanos. Its important to understand from where are coming all this bad habits in order to don't make the same mistakes in the future. Unfurtunately is not just up to us to cahnge the future of this great country, if USA woudn't consume so much Drugs and sell so many weapons we wouldn't have so many problems now. Like the book says: "Mexico should be one of the richies countries in the World". Good Book

Mexico

A good historical summary of events, however, no opinion is ventured as to WHY the Spanish colonial system and the British colonial system would have such different outcomes.
