Fire & Blood: A History of Mexico

Fire & Blood: A History of Mexico - T. R. Fehrenbach

Fire & Blood: A History of Mexico

Mexican history comes to life in this "fascinating" work by the author of Lone Star: A History of Texas and the Texans (The Christian Science Monitor).

Fire & Blood brilliantly depicts the succession of tribes and societies that have variously called Mexico their home, their battleground, and their legacy. This is the tale of the indigenous people who forged from this rugged terrain a wide-ranging civilization; of the Olmec, Maya, Toltec, and Aztec dynasties, which exercised their sophisticated powers through bureaucracy and religion; of the Spanish conquistadors, whose arrival heralded death, disease, and a new vision of continental domination. Author T. R. Fehrenbach connects these threads with the story of modern-day, independent Mexico, a proud nation struggling to balance its traditions against opportunities that often seem tantalizingly out of reach.

From the Mesoamerican empires to the Spanish Conquest and the Mexican Revolution, peopled by the legendary personalities of Mexican history--Montezuma, Cortés, Santa Anna, Juárez, Maximilian, Díaz, Pancho Villa, and Zapata--Fire & Blood is a "deftly organized and well-researched" work of popular history (Library Journal).
