Rate this:
Robinson (English emeritus, U. of Arizona) has selected and translated the writings of a dozen historians, journalists, and statesmen dating from the time of the war (1846-48) to the present. They reveal the Mexican side of the conflict as they attempt to cope with the calamity that befell them, to analyze the defects within their own society which might account for the defeat, and to understand the nature of that so-different country to the north which descended upon them. An important contribution to a neglected aspect of US history. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
