The complex history of the Southwest as Mexico pulled away from imperial Spain while it redefined itself and then emerged the isolated northern frontiers of the Southwest then pulled away from Mexico and many residents allied themselves with the ever growing influence of the widening American frontier. From the back of the book: This widely praised book is the first to view the Southwest under Mexico from both sides of the Rio Grande. Published in 1982, it has won six major awards including the prestigious Billington Award of the Organization of American Historians. 'At last, a long-ignored era in a neglected region has received attention from the scholar most ably equipped to provide a balanced and comprehensive treatment. a masterful work which combines artful composition with prodigious research...a significant contribution in the fields of frontier, Mexican, and southwestern history. Professor Weber writes uncommonly well; this combined with his awesome command of the sources has created a book for scholars and laypersons alike. His evenhanded treatment has corrected many misconceptions previously held about the people and events of the Mexican southwest. Weber has brought the Mexican northern frontier out of the dark age and has brilliantly and gracefully told its story. *
