This book offers a summary overview of Mexico as an independent nation up to the present day, addressing the various aspects of its political, economic and social history. It deals with the crisis of the Republic, from the independence of Texas up to the war with the United States (1846-1848) and the advent of the Empire of the Habsburg Archduke, Maximilian I (1864-1867), the transformations of the late nineteenth century and the causes and phases of the 1910 revolution. It also addresses the difficulties inherent in the construction of the post-revolutionary State, in a context of political stability in the course of the twentieth century that diverged from the evolution of other continental countries.
