Abstract:
"Series of 12 essays on Mexican culture, history, and politics, originally published as Nuevo tiempo mexicano (1994). Time and memory are recurring motifs connecting essays. Some autobiographical chapters. Several centered on Mexico's 1994 political crossroads are somewhat dated given the outcome of the 2000 elections. Fluent translation; no supporting or introductory materials"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58. http://www.loc.gov/hlas/
