Product Description

Mexican Kaleidoscope delves into Mexico's rich history and culture. It focuses on a fascinating selection of events, individuals, myths and mysteries to explore some of the reasons why Mexico has become such an extraordinarily diverse and interesting nation.

The 30 short chapters of Mexican Kaleidoscope span the entire range of time periods, from long before the Spanish conquest to the modern day. The topics considered range from cuisine, Aztec farming, Mayan pyramids, sheep and superstitions to mythical cities, aerial warfare, art, music and the true origins of Mexico's national symbols. Along the way, it reveals many unusual, strange, weird and wonderful aspects of Mexico.

Mexican Kaleidoscope unravels some of the many forces that have helped shape Mexico's history and culture and helps us understand the appeal and mystique of this engaging country.
