9780131841147: El Gran Pueblo: A History of Greater Mexico

For courses in Mexican History, 20th Century Mexican History, and Chicano Studies.

Based on the belief that people—not institutions—make history, this narrative examines the challenges that the Mexican people have faced since independence, and tells the story of their resiliency and creative character during the years of political and economic change. It examines national boundaries not as barriers, but as the setting of complex interactions resulting in the convergence of cultures, resulting in a text that reveals the Mexican experience not only in Mexico, but in what is today the southwestern United States.

From the Back Cover:

Based on the belief that people—not institutions—make history, this narrative of the history of the Mexican people examines the challenges they have faced since gaining their independence, telling of their resilience and creative character during the years of political and economic changes. El Gran Pueblo examines national boundaries not as barriers, but as the setting of complex interactions, resulting in the convergence of cultures; and, in doing so, reveals the Mexican experience not only in Mexico but in what is today the southwestern United States.

Material new to the Third Edition includes:
  • New information on the culture of Porfirian elites in the 1890s, including popular music of the time.
  • Issues of crime, especially celebrity kidnapping and corruption, as challenges to governability of Mexico today.
  • Discussion of the monumental presidential election of 2000 and the administration of Vicente Fox.
  • Discussion of cultural convergence at the community level in today's border region.
