Mexico otherwise : modern Mexico in the eyes of foreign observers ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 241 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 Some are unpublished pieces by little-known writers, and six are available here for the first time in English."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"--P. 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 179 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

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 9 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

State Governors in the Mexican Revolution, 1910-1952 ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This unique volume examines revolutionary Mexico's state governors-the most significant intermediaries between the national government and the people it ruled. Leading scholars study governors from ten different states of Mexico during the eventful first half of the twentieth century to demonstrate the diversity of the governors' experiences over time, as well as the waxing and waning of strong governorship as an institution that disappeared in the powerful national regime created in the 1940s and 1950s. The only book that considers the state governors in comparative perspective, this invaluable study offers a fresh view of regionalism and the Revolution
