Problems in Modern Mexican History : Sources and Interpretations Paperback
Edited by William H. Beezley, Monica A. Rankin
Part of the Latin American Silhouettes series
Mexicans, since national independence, have defined their challenges as problems or dimensions in their lives.
They have faced these issues alone or with others through politics, security (the military, police, or even public health squads), religion, family, and popular groups.
This compelling reader collects documents-texts, visuals, videos, and sounds-from organizational reports, popular expressions, and ephemeral creations to express these concerns, reveal responses, and measure successes.
They allow readers to consider and discuss how these documents enabled Mexicans to evaluate their history and culture from 1810 to the present.
Offering a wide variety of materials that can be tailored to the needs of individual instructors, these rich sources will stimulate critical thinking and give students new insights and often surprising respect and understanding for the ways Mexicans have managed to find humor, even magic, in their lives.
