Summary
"The Mexican-American War of 1846-48 resulted in the annexation of vast territories by the United States, without which an essential persona of the American character-the westerner-might never have evolved. Yet little consideration is ever given to how the loss of half its territory affected Mexico. This anthology of writings by twelve Mexican intellectuals, diplomats, and writers considers the war referred to as la invasión norteamericana. The selections range from contemporary accounts to modern interpretations and are translated here for the first time into English. The authors present a variety of viewpoints and attempt both to account for the defeat and understand Mexico's northern neighbor. Robinson provides an introduction to the entire book as well as to each selection"--Jacket flap
