Editorial Reviews

Among the smaller wars of the United States, the one fought against Mexico remains one of the most interesting. Like most wars, the Mexican War was shaped by the particular characteristics of the belligerent countries and its study may help understand both U.S. and Mexican society of the 1840s. There is a considerable body of literature on the Mexican War, much of it extolling the real or imagined virtues of U.S. soldiers, but somehow--perhaps for being rather straightforwardly "patriotero"--this literature has not earned the war a major place in "official history." As Michael Hogan rightly points out in his introduction, many American textbooks scarcely devote attention to this war. "Coverage, "he writes, "generally consists of a two or three page section entitled 'Westward Expansion' or 'Manifest Destiny.'"
