By means of a tour from its earliest inhabitants to current times, the work allows the reader to have complete information on the main events that took place during every epoch described in the text.
The peopling of America by nomadic hunters (20,000 years B.C.), the pre-Hispanic cultures, the Conquest, the Spanish domination during the Viceroyalty, Independence, the First Empire, the war against the United States, the French Intervention, the government of Juárez, the Porfirian regime, the Mexican Revolution and current times are events described simply and understandably for the reader thanks to the author’s extensive knowledge of these topics.
Did you know that in Mexico City no monument or sculpture represents the Conquistador Hernán Cortés, the most important personage of the history of the Conquest of New Spain.
The siege of Mexico-Tenochtitlan ended on August 13, 1521. To understand Mexican history we should not lose sight of the fact that Mexico is indigenous and Spanish, a fusion of these cultures and a product that did not only inherit the “paternal and maternal” elements, but also succeeded in developing its own being across the centuries to acquire a personal hallmark as a nation.
