Empire and Revolution: The Americans in Mexico since the Civil War

Synopsis

"This is an extraordinarily important history of both U.S.-Mexico relations and of the political, economic, social, and cultural activities of Americans in Mexico."--Friedrich Katz, author of "The Life and Times of Pancho Villa

"Empire and Revolution is empowering as well as informative, providing a detailed record and judicious interpretation of the protean relations between the United States and Mexico. As John Mason Hart convincingly narrates, the association is of dynamic importance for people of both countries. While there have been studies on discrete parts and periods of the U.S.-Mexico relation, this book charts and anchors the relation globally. Hart allows the reader intellectual as well as imaginative insight into the multifaceted social, cultural, and political reality of the sharing of North America--then, now, and in the future."--Juan Gomez-Quinones, author of "Mexican-American Labor, 1790-1990
