The Course of Mexican History

Tenth Edition

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

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 tenth edition, offers a completely up-to-date, lively, and engaging survey from the pre-Columbian times to the present.

The leading textbook in its field, The Course of Mexican History, Tenth Edition, is indispensable for students of Mexican history, politics, economics, and culture.

New to this Edition:

  • Updates to the pre-Columbian chapters reflecting recent archaeological discoveries and new interpretations
  • Expanded coverage of social and cultural history throughout, including discussions of gender and ethnic relations; ethnicity and identity; local religion; popular protest; and contemporary film, music, and popular culture
  • New insights into Mexico's post-revolutionary politics and leadership
  • An additional chapter examining Mexican politics, economy, and society since 2000
  • Expanded analysis of border issues, including migration and drug trafficking
