Summary
  • This volume examines how current economic development has fostered glaring inequalities in Mexico, uncovering the fundamental role of race and class in perpetuating poverty, and shedding new light on the contemporary Mexican reality. Throughout, the author traces a legacy of dependency on outsiders, and considers the weighty role the United States has played, starting with an unjust war that cost Mexico half its territory
  • "In Mexico, Ramon Eduardo Ruiz brings a lifetime of study and a passionate love of his subject to bear on the most vexing puzzle any historian of Mexico can confront: Why should a country so rich in potential remain perennially mired in poverty, corruption, and injustice? This is a bold, angry, and absolutely indispensable book."--Timothy J. Henderson, author of The Mexican Wars for Independence
