In this latest entry in the "Blue Guide" series, which has a long history with different publishers since 1915, veteran travel authors give a good deal of background information (history, culture, food, and archaeology, in particular) and practical information on Mexico. After 100 pages of this, the book is organized by areas of the country. Within the various regions there are chapters on the large cities and important places. For each place there are paragraphs on railroads, buses, airports, restaurants, hotels, post offices, and the like. However, the authors do not usually list specific hotels or restaurants. Instead, they indicate the general locations of the expensive, moderate, or inexpensive hotels and restaurants. Then they present routes from one city to another with the kind of detail the old Baedekers had. The guide has a slightly British flavor and spelling (it is British in origin), but this does not detract from the value of this large, extensive, and detailed work. The maps and photographs were not seen, but if they live up to the standard of the other guides, they will be fine. Recommended for public libraries.?George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, Pa.
