5.0 out of 5 stars A great companion for the inquisitive traveller, 5 Dec 2012

The author without patronising the reader has successfully brought together a vast amount of historical, sociological , economical and political information relating to this country in a pithy Q & A format which should be of great interest to the traveller with an inquiring mind.
For instance there are great insights into the present problem of drug violence/gang warfare and its origins.There is a good analysis of the modern economical development of Mexico and its relationship with its big neighbour.
The author covers as well the history of the Spanish colonisation and its socio political legacy. The Mexican Revolution and the conflict between liberals and conservatives is given serious treatment and most importantly the evolution of modern political structures after 1920 is well covered as well as the recent political developments.
It is partly journalistic account and partly historical essay and economic analysis.I found it an enlightening easy read not particularly taxing despite its obvious scholarship.A great synopsis highly recommended for the intelligent traveller and a comprehensive introduction for any student of Mexican society.
