The Course of Mexican History

Eleventh Edition

Susan M. Deeds, Michael C. Meyer, and William L. Sherman

Mexico's political, social, and economic landscapes have shifted in very striking ways in recent years and the country now moves cautiously forward, in the twenty-first century. Revised to address these remarkable transformations, The Course of Mexican History, now in its eleventh edition, offers a completely up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey from the pre-Columbian times to the present.

New to this Edition:

  • Updates to pre-Columbian chapters, including recent discoveries at the pyramids of Teotihuacan and on Maya codices (picture writing)
  • New material on the Spanish conquest of Mexico and native responses to colonial rule
  • Revised interpretations of Santa Anna and the US-Mexican War
  • Reevaluation of the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and its aftermath
  • Expanded coverage of social and cultural history throughout, including discussions on gender history, ethnic groups, local religion, cultural nationalism, environmental change, popular protests, and urban life
  • Updates on recent political crises, corruption, and US- Mexican relations
  • Extended analysis of border issues, including migration and narcotraffic
  • Reflections and illustrations of Mexico's rich contemporary popular culture, including film, television, music, cuisine, leisure, and sport
