“…international relevance with an engrossing story”


“Michael Hogan, in Abraham Lincoln and Mexico, brings together a passion for Mexico and an understanding of the United States during the nineteenth century so that he narrates their history with a sense of the intertwining of international relevance with an engrossing story. Here Abraham Lincoln becomes a human being of keen ideas and political know-how rather than the marble statute of his monument; here Benito Juarez, also becomes an individual beyond the dour lawyer portrayed in textbooks, movies, and television. There is a scope about this book that finds a kind of grandeur in the events as they are eloquently described.”

–William H. Beezley, Professor of History, University of Arizona. Author of The Essential Mexico (Oxford University Press).
