This user-friendly reference dictionary provides a quick guide to those who have governed Mexico from 1325 to 1997. It covers all rulers from the Aztec Empire to the current president, Ernesto Zedillo.

Arranged chronologically, with a glossary, appendixes, and name index, the book includes four main chapters--The Aztec Empire, The Conquest and Viceroyalty, From Independence to the Diaz Dictatorship, and Revolution and Modern Mexico. Each chapter opens with a brief characterization of the period.

Editorial Reviews

?This unique dictionary brings together a wealth of information about the rulers of Mexico.... Given the scarcity of information about some of the political figures or the short term of their service, some entries are quite brief, but much of the information was impossible to find before the publication of this book.??Choice
