    The two greatest attributes of Kirkwood’s History of Mexico are its brevity and readability. Roughly the length of a long novel, it makes for a quick and easy read for those traveling to Mexico or just interested in its basic history. It is short on cultural movements and longer on the military and economic evolution of the country. Like the editorial reviewer above, I wish Kirkwood would have dedicated significantly more room (and more facts) to present-day issues, such as immigration, the NAFTA, the peso bailout and the achievements and failures of the Fox administration. Still, the book provides a good, short, readable background on Mexican history for English speakers with limited basic knowledge of the country’s history.

    This book is very well-written and comprehensive in terms of the periods it covers. It is fair and unbiased and provides a good amount of detail without being overwhelming. Exactly what I was looking for.

  3. Good book for a quick orderly history of Mexico. Well thought out. Not a newspaper that is as up to date as today, but you don’t expect that in a book written a couple of years ago. Wold buy it again.
