Mexico's once and future revolution : social upheaval and the challenge of rule since the late nineteenth century by G. M Joseph( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this concise historical analysis of the Mexican Revolution, Gilbert M. Joseph and Jürgen Buchenau explore the revolution's causes, dynamics, consequences, and legacies. They do so from varied perspectives, including those of campesinos and workers; politicians, artists, intellectuals, and students; women and men; the well-heeled, the dispossessed, and the multitude in the middle. In the process, they engage major questions about the revolution. How did the revolutionary process and its aftermath modernize the nation's economy and political system and transform the lives of ordinary Mexicans? Rather than conceiving the revolution as either the culminating popular struggle of Mexico's history or the triumph of a new (not so revolutionary) state over the people, Joseph and Buchenau examine the textured process through which state and society shaped each other. The result is a lively history of Mexico's "long twentieth century," from Porfirio Díaz's modernizing dictatorship to the neoliberalism of the present day

"Thorough study of the endogenous and external factors that have shaped Mexico's dealings with the Central American republics.

Plutarco Elías Calles and the Mexican Revolution by Jürgen Buchenau( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only substantive study of Plutarco Elías Calles and the Mexican Revolution, this book traces the remarkable life story of a complex and little-understood, yet key figure in Mexico's history. Jürgen Buchenau draws on a rich array of archival evidence from Mexico, the United States, and Europe to explore Calles's origins and political trajectory, ultimately leading to his reformist, yet authoritarian presidency from 1924 to 1928. After his term as president, Calles continued to exert broad influence as his country's foremost political figure; indeed, many of the institutions and laws forged
Mexico otherwise : modern Mexico in the eyes of foreign observers( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This rich anthology provides a glimpse of modern Mexico through the eyes of foreign observers. Some of these selections are by well-known authors (Alexander von Humboldt, John Reed, B. Traven, Evelyn Waugh). Some are unpublished pieces by little-known writers, and six are available here for the first time in English." "The writings fall into four periods: the transitions to independence and Mexico's first decades as a sovereign country (1800-1867), the era of Liberal modernization (1867-1910), the Mexican Revolution (1910-1940), and the post-World War II era. Four major topics show up repeatedly: ethnicity, gender, and race; cultural differences between Mexicans and foreigners; political stability and instability; and the economy and its impact on Mexicans. Although observers expressed a wide range of view-points on these issues, they agreed in finding a stunning degree of ethnic and regional diversity as well as what they saw as stark contrasts between urban and rural, rich and poor, modernity and tradition." "In addition to Anglo-American authors, the anthology includes selections by German, French, Norwegian, and Spanish authors. Just over a third of the pieces are by women, who offer glimpses of private worlds closed to men, such as convent life, relations between women and their servants, and household affairs"--Page 4 of cover

Tools of progress : a German merchant family in Mexico City, 1865-present by Jürgen Buchenau( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in 1865, the Casa Boker is one of the oldest and most prestigious stores in Mexico City. At its peak, it was known as "the Sears of Mexico," a department store that sold 40,000 different products across the republic, including sewing machines, typewriters, tools, cutlery, and even insurance. Managed by the great-grandsons of its founder, the Casa Boker continues in business in Mexico City." "Through a revolution, the Great Depression, and two world wars, the Casa Boker thrived as a Mexican business while its owners clung to their German identity. Today, the family still speaks German but considers itself Mexican." "Buchenau's study transcends the categories of local vs. foreign and insider vs. outsider by demonstrating that one family could be commercial insiders and, at the same time, cultural outsiders. Because the Bokers saw themselves as entrepreneurs first and Germans second, Buchenau suggests that transnational theory, a framework previously used to illustrate the fluidity of national identity in poor immigrants, is the best way of understanding this and other elite families of foreign origin."--Jacket
