xx+316 pages with bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/4") bound in original publisher's brown cloth with silver lettering to spine in original jacket. First edition. By the mid-nineteenth century, the european conflict between liberalism and conservatism was in full force in the New World. Liberal revolutions were ousting conservative forces in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America. the liberal party in Mexico and the Republican party in the United States shared an ideology of laissez-faire liberalism which led both countries to recognize the relationship of their domestic and foreign polices.

American imperialism in Mexico was not the product of undesired international power politics, but a phenomenon heartily welcomed by the governing liberal elite in Mexico. Until now, most analyses of U S - Mexican relations in ... Read more
