In the shadow of the Mexican revolution : contemporary Mexican history, 1910-1989 by Héctor Aguilar Camín ( Book )
13 editions published between 1933 and 2001 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hector Aguilar Camin and Lorenzo Meyer, two of Mexico's leading intellectuals, set out to fill a void in the literature on Mexican history: the lack of a single text to cover the history of contemporary Mexico during the twentieth century, from the conditions that set in motion the Mexican Revolution of 1910 to the most recent presidential elections in 1988. A la sombra de la Revolucion Mexicana, now available in English as In the Shadow of the Mexican Revolution, offers a sweeping account of Mexico's history since 1910: seventy-nine years of change and continuity, innovation and reiteration. It covers the Mexican Revolution itself, the gradual consolidation of institutions, the Cardenas regime, the "Mexican economic miracle" and its subsequent collapse, and the recent transition toward a new historical period. Both authors are vigorous and influential commentators on contemporary events in Mexico, and both have political influence (although they deliver it in different ways: Aguilar Camin defends the current regime, while Meyer critiques it). Presenting contemporary Mexican history from a Mexican point of view, they offer a comprehensive and authoritative study of Mexico's turbulent recent history, a history that increasingly intertwines with that of the United States. Given the level of interest in Mexico - likely to increase still more as a result of the recent liberalization of trade policies - this volume will be useful in affording U.S. readers an intelligent, comprehensive, and accessible study of their neighbor to the south. With prose that is appealing for both its humor and sharpness, the book should interest an informed general readership, as well as being attractive for classroom adoption

7 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En octubre del ano 2005, mientras trabajaba en La provincia perdida, Hector Aguilar Camin dijo en una entrevista: Escribo una novela de guerra, amor, aventura y fantasia. Yo digo que se trata de un salvaje cuento de hadas. Es la historia del enviado de una republica asolada por la guerra civil a conservar la lealtad de una provincia remota. A lo largo de su aventura en ese mundo extrano, donde combaten por igual los ejercitos y los espiritus, el protagonista pierde los ideales y la guerra, pero gana el amor y la sabiduria radical del desencanto. Aqui esta la novela anunciada, con todos sus agravantes. La provincia perdida es, en efecto, un salvaje cuento de hadas, es una novela de aventuras, una novela de amor, una novela de guerra, y un ejercicio de la mas sensual y exquisita fantasia
