Summary The Encyclopedia of Mexico presents a processual view of Mexican history, society and culture from ancient civilizations to the present day. The primary emphasis is on broad historiographic issues, although the encyclopedia includes many supplementary entries on people (see Frida Kahlo) and specific events (see Earthquake of 1985). The encyclopedia provides students, academics, librarians and the general reader with convenient access to basic bibliographic and factual data on specific events and broad processes in Mexican history. It promotes scholarly dialogue across disciplinary and national borders and provides a useful component for multi-disciplinary courses on Mexico. This encyclopedia represents a collaborative effort that has involved more than 350 leading scholars from around the world.
