9780803226388: Santa Anna of Mexico
Críticas:

"Superb... Fowler has produced an elegantly-written and engaging study about one of Mexico's most notorious and misunderstood leaders. His even handed assessment of Santa Anna as more than just a power-hungry, opportunistic, and corrupt politician makes this biography a most welcome and valuable addition to Mexican historiography." Journal of Military History "There have been many other biographies of Santa Anna, both by Anglophone and Mexican scholars, but none as balanced or revisionist in tone as Fowler's. He seeks to look at Santa Anna 'warts and all' in a searching way in which few authors of even longer works have done. This book will be an important contribution to the field because it gives us a compelling narrative that is scrupulously researched and nicely written... Fowler's bibliography constitutes an excellent entry-point into the historiography on the Santa Anna period." Eric Van Young, author of The Other Rebellion: Popular Violence, Ideology, and the Mexican Struggle for Independence, 1810-1821 "Assessing the many findings made in the last thirty years of historiography on the topic, Fowler develops a persuasive new understanding of Santa Anna and the problems that beset the then-young Mexican republic. Fowler's writing style is eloquent, rigorous, and accessible. He articulates complex ideas with clarity and simplicity, and establishes clear connections between themes. The text is an enjoyable read---and one which is sure to make an important contribution to Mexican historiography." Abdiel Onate, professor of history at San Francisco State University

Reseña del editor:

Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna (1794 - 1876) is one of the most famous, and infamous, figures in Mexican history. Six times the country's president, he is consistently depicted as a traitor, a turncoat, and a tyrant - the exclusive cause of all of Mexico's misfortunes following the country's independence from Spain. He is also, as this biography makes clear, grossly misrepresented. Will Fowler provides a revised picture of Santa Anna's life, offering new insights into his activities in his bailiwick of Veracruz and in his numerous military engagements. The Santa Anna who emerges from this book is an intelligent, dynamic, yet reluctant leader, ingeniously deceptive at times, courageous and patriotic at others. His extraordinary story is that of a middle-class provincial criollo , a high-ranking officer, an arbitrator, a dedicated landowner, and a political leader who tried to prosper personally and help his country develop at a time of severe and repeated crises, as the colony that was New Spain gave way to a young, troubled, besieged, and beleaguered Mexican nation.

Six times the country s president, he is consistently depicted as a traitor, a turncoat, and a tyrant-the exclusive cause of all of Mexico s misfortunes following the country s independence from Spain.

Drawing on seventeen years of research into the politics of independent Mexico, Will Fowler provides a revised picture of Santa Anna s life, with new insights into his activities in his bailiwick of Veracruz and in his numerous military engagements.

Deconstructing the myths surrounding Santa Anna s life, the book offers a fresh view of a critical chapter in Mexico s history. Nº de ref. de la librería AAV9780803226388
