This volume represents some of the most enduring reflections on the Latin American city. All of the essays were written by public officials, journalists, and social commentators, among others, who participated actively in the affairs of the cities they so perceptively describe.
The collection offers critical analyses spanning hundreds of years, beginning with the era of the conquistadores in Tenochtitln and continuing to the deafening bustle of today's urban crowds in Mexico City.
Professors Gilbert Joseph and Mark Szuchman offer translations of classic pieces by writers previously little known to Western audiences: Cobo, Garca, Santos Vilhena, and Leite de Barros.
