Drug wars, NAFTA, presidential politics, and heightened
attention to Mexican immigration are just some of the recent issues
that are freshly interpreted in this updated survey of Mexican-U.S.
The fourth edition has been completely revised and offers a
lively, engaging, and up-to-date analysis of historical patterns of
change and continuity as well as contemporary issues. Ranging from
Mexican antiquity and the arrival of the Spanish and British to the
present-day administrations of Felipe Calderón and Barack Obama,
historians Dirk Raat and Michael Brescia evaluate the political,
economic, and cultural trends and events that have shaped the ways
that Mexicans and Americans have regarded each other over the
centuries. Raat and Brescia pay special attention to the factors
that have subordinated Mexico not only to "the colossus of the
North" but to many other players in the global economy. They also
provide a unique look at the cultural dynamics of Gran Chichimeca
or Mexamerica, the borderlands where the two countries share a
common history. The bibliographical essay has been revised to
reflect current research and scholarship.
