From the rise of the first civilizations of North America and continuing through the cataclysm of the Spanish conquest and the explosive revolution of Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa to the intensely contested presidential election of 2006, Mexico has had a vibrant and dynamic history. A Brief History of Mexico, Updated Edition gives expansive coverage to Mexico's pre-Columbian civilizations as well as contemporary indigenous cultures. This book also brings readers up to date on recent developments in Mexico and helps them understand the deeper significance of these headline-making events, including the 2006 presidential election that resulted in victory for the National Action Party's Felipe Calderon, a weakened Institutional Revolutionary Party, and the Democratic Revolutionary Party candidate's threatening a government in opposition.
