An excellent book on Mexico, published under the auspices of the Hochschule für Politik and the Institut für Auswärtige Politik. The author is thoroughly conversant with the whole literature bearing upon his problem and has made extensive investigations in the United States and Mexico. He begins with an admirable account of the development of Mexico since the establishment of her independence, stressing the international aspects of her position and analyzing the changing attitude and interests of Great Britain and the United States. The author works out in detail the emergence of the oil question and its reaction upon the general situation. The period since 1910 is dealt with fully and the reader will find a mine of information collected here.
