Starr, being an anthropologist and a historian, visited Mexico extensively. As he wrote this book, a highly disruptive, deadly revolution was taking place across the nation, so Starr attempts to explain the circumstances leading to that event. He begins with the Centennial of Independence, then delves into the country's history starting with the Aztecs, and up to present day (1914). The point of view from both countries protagonists is also discussed as historic events are described. He states that "the US and Mexico are different, yet they are neighbors.", and ends with "They should be friends." - Summary by Mario Pineda
