Volume 64 / Humanities

HISTORY: MEXICO: General


JÜRGEN BUCHENAU, Assistant Professor of History, University of North Carolina

THE PERIOD REVIEWED was short on new syntheses of Mexican history, aside from Earl Shorris' essayistic The Life and Times of Mexico (item #bi2007002533#). Brian Hamnett's textbook (item #bi2006001050#) appeared in a second edition. Also significant was the publication of a compilation of essays on the Mexican presidency, featuring chapters on most of the country's most important presidents (item #bi2007002543#), as well as the appearance of an anthology that features 30 of the most eminent historical works written by Mexican historians in the 20th century (item #bi2007002540#).

Other works in this small sample of books surveyed highlight the continued scholarly interest in a number of themes, in particular Afro-Mexican history (items #bi2007001048# and #bi2007002534#); agrarian history (items #bi2007002548# and #bi2007002824#); and gender history (item #bi2007002539#).
