The Human Tradition in Mexico

by Jeffrey M. Pilcher (Editor)

The Human Tradition in Mexico is a book of real-life stories of Mexicans throughout more than 250 years of the country's history. This text does not focus on presidents, generals, and other well-known figures, but rather on the ordinary individuals who faced challenges common to all Mexicans of their generation. Editor Jeffrey M. Pilcher uses these vignettes to explore three significant themes: nationalism and globalization, modernization and its effects on ordinary people, and the struggle for the self. This book will enlighten and entertain readers with its colorful and engaging narratives of Mexicans throughout the country's rich past.
