Comments to eBook The History of Mexico: From Pre-Conquest to Present
Morlurne

Russell has assembled a well organized, crystal-clear book on Mexico. I knocked a star off because the colonial section and pre-contact sections are anemic, but the independence to present sections are great. He takes into account all the current scholarship and research that should be included and creates a narrative anybody could understand. He also goes out of his way to compare Mexico with the US and discuss the relationship between the two countries in a way that is neither a savage attack on the US nor a condescending treatment of "poor Mexico, so far from God, so close to the US." Those sections are very well done.

This is a pretty straight read - if you want some humor or warmth look elsewhere - but for the person that wants to "get" Mexico, I highly recommend it.

This is a well-researched work written by a knowledgeable and multi-faceted person. If you are interested in Mexico, if you do business and/or travel in Mexico, if you want a first-rate reference book with a good index, if you are a history buff, if you want to better understand Mexico today, you MUST add this book to your library. It is not only comprehensive and authoritative, but it is reader friendly. Russell's writing style is engaging and easy to comprehend and follow. The organization of the book makes it easy to navigate and it contains interesting and explanatory images.

Russell is no staid and stodgy historian. His knowledge of Mexico is up close and personal, enhanced by his travels off the beaten track. He first became fascinated by Mexico many years ago when visiting to explore caves. Sub-sequently he spent many months hitching around with a backpack and hiking to Indian villages that lacked roads. He is still an indefatigable hiker. His exposure to Mexico became more conventional, but continued to be diverse. He repeatedly served as expedition interpreter for the National Science Foundation expeditions searching for monarch butterfly overwintering sites. He won an award for ecotourism development from the city of Bustamante, Nuevo León, for building a trail to the city's tourist cave. In 2011 the Sierra Club recognized him as outstanding outings leader for the state of Texas. Philip traveled with all six Mexican presidential campaigns in 1988 as part of the press and twice has been an official presidential election observer. He has served as expert witness on immigration matters in federal court. His writings have appeared in sources ranging from the Austin Chronicle to the New York Times.

"The History of Mexico: From Pre-Conquest to Present" reflects Russell's longtime and ongoing concern with the envi-ronment. He also illuminates the history in Mexico of women, and of its indigenous peoples, populations usually neglected or treated with little specificity.

From Mexico Labor News and Analysis - "[A] very thorough, useful, and readable history of Mexico. [Russell] presents a clear, well informed, and well argued interpretation of Mexican history which emphasizes the country's economic and social foundations, its political evolution and which takes up at every turn the issues of class, race, gender, the environment, and foreign relations..."
