The Mexican Revolution by Alan Knight( Book )

57 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Knight addresses the causes of the upheaval, before outlining the armed conflict between 1910 and 1920, explaining how a durable regime was consolidated in the 1920s, and summing up the social reforms of the Revolution, which culminated in the radical years of the 1930s. Along the way, Knight places the conflict alongside other 'great' revolutions, and compares Mexico with the Latin American countries that avoided the violent upheaval."--Provided by publisher
Mexico : from the beginning to the Spanish Conquest by Alan Knight( Book )

22 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is one in a three-volume general history of Mexico, comprising (I) the PreConquest period to 1521, (II) the Colonial period from 1521 to 1821, and (III) the National period from 1821-present. These books give a comprehensive narrative and analysis of Mexican history, focusing especially on political, economic, and social organization. Balancing both a "'bottom-up" (popular) and a "top-down" (elite) perspective, they seek, where possible, to locate Mexico within broader, comparative patterns of historical change and conflict
The Idea of race in Latin America, 1870-1940 by Richard Graham( Book )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the mid-nineteenth century until th 1930s, many Latin American leaders faced a difficult dilemma regarding the idea of race. On the one hand, they aspired to an ever closer connection to Europe and North America, where during much of this period "scientific" thought condemned the nonwhite races to an inferior catagory. Yet, with the heterogeneneous racial makeup of their societies clearly before them and a growing sense of national identity impelling consideration of national futures, Latin American leaders hesitated. What to do? Whom to believe? Latin American political and intellectual leaders' sometimes anguished responses to these dilemmas form the subject of The Idea of race in Latin America (from back cover)

The Mexican petroleum industry in the twentieth century( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These were the years when the oil workers' union gained a reputation for both power and corruption. The oil industry slipped into crisis in the early 1970s as Mexico, for the first time in fifty years, began to import petroleum. A conscious decision by the government to change the nation's energy policies contributed to the export boom of the late 1970s and, finally, to the large foreign debt and low oil prices of the 1980s. As the nation's oil industry' enters its
The Great Depression in Latin America( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Latin America weathered the Great Depression better than the United States and Europe, the global economic collapse of the 1930s had a deep and lasting impact on the region. The contributors to this book examine the consequences of the Depression in terms of the role of the state, party-political competition, and the formation of working-class and other social and political movements. Going beyond economic history, they chart the repercussions and policy responses in different countries, while noting common cross-regional trends, in particular, a mounting critique of economic orthodoxy and greater state intervention in the economic, social and cultural spheres, both trends crucial to the region's subsequent development. The book also examines how regional transformations interacted with and differed from global processes. Taken together, these essays deepen our understanding of the Great Depression as a formative experience in Latin America and provide a timely comparative perspective on the recent global economic crisis.--
