“It was a time of men in silk top hats and women in elegant dresses at one end of the social spectrum, and of landless, impoverished peasants at the other. It was Mexico’s version of the Gilded Age, guided by an administration in thrall to French positivist ideas of the importance of quantifiable progress—no matter how pseudoscientific the instruments for measuring it were—giving rise to the nickname Científicos (scientists) for government ministers.”
Carrie Gibson, El Norte: The Epic and Forgotten Story of Hispanic North America
