The Life and Times of Mexico is a grand narrative driven by 3,000 years of history: the Indian world, the Spanish invasion, Independence, the 1910 Revolution, the tragic lives of workers in assembly plants along the border, and the experiences of millions of Mexicans who live in the United States. Mexico is seen here as if it were a person, but in the Aztec way?he mind, the heart, the winds of life?nd on every page there are portraits and stories: artists, shamans, teachers, a young Maya political leader?the rich few and the many poor.
