I liked it because it touches , in the form of questions/answers, specific subjects of Mexico's current situation. Being Mexican and living abroad, a written work of this kind, could be very helpful in reconnecting with our country, our culture and our people, fact that in my case, made me feel closer to them; and maybe it helped me to become an agent to voice out what's happening there and why...
Not what I thought. I was hoping it would have more history facts about Mexico, but it was more about the politics and the history of them more than anything else. It's very well researched if that is what someone needs and the format is great because it's broken down as questions for easy look-up.
A very informative book outlining historical, economic, political and military causes of what produced the Mexico of today (up to 2011). Written in the form of a series of questions posed by the author which are followed by brief but detailed descriptions of the answers. Certainly not an adventure novel, but an easy-to-read introduction to many of the things that have made Mexico what it is today.My thanks to Bev for the loan of this book.
