At the centre of his global business empire were his interests in Mexico. While Pearson's extraordinary success in Mexico took place within the context of unprecedented levels of British trade with and investment in Latin America, the book argues that Pearson should be understood less as an agent of British imperialism than as an agent of Porfirian state building and modernization."@en ;
