Owing to Yucatan s relative isolation, many assume that the history and economy of the peninsula have evolved in a distinctive way, apart from the central government in Mexico City and insulated from world social and economic factors.The essays in this volume suggest that this has not been the case: the process of development in Yucatan has been linked firmly to national and global forces of change over the past two centuries.The essays are by U.S., Mexican, Canadian, and Belizean social scientists representing both well-established and younger scholars.The result is a perspective on Yucatan s historical development that is at once international, interdisciplinary, and intergenerational. In this volume, all of the contributors are genuinely comfortable with the theories and approaches of several disciplines economics, history, and anthropology, and sociology.All have used largely untapped, primary, archival sources, and the result is a fascinating offering of new information."
