Chapter 9 Conclusion: Mexican Images of Nation and Neighbor
Throughout this wonderful book on the way Mexicans perceive the U.S., Morris skillfully shows that while the discourse of Mexican politicians deals with the political present, privileging the issues of economic prosperity and development, Mexican school texts portray the U.S. as historically anti-Mexican and dangerous....Highly recommended.
— Choice Reviews
Morris is to be congratulated for the breadth of his research, including engagement with a wide and disparate secondary literature, and for the clarity of his prose.

A beautifully crafted exploration that will appeal to a wide range of readers. Anyone interested in Mexico will benefit from its thoughtful insights.
