Sources for the History of Twentieth-Century Mexico: Books and encyclopedias

Resources for the history of 20th-century Mexico


Books and encyclopedias

Sometimes it’s good to start your search looking for secondary sources in books and encyclopedias.  Search the UTEP Library catalog for specific topics.  The UTEP Library holds over 6500 books with "Mexico" and “history” appearing in the subject headiings.  More than 70 subject headings begin with “Mexico—History—20th century.”  You can break the subject headings down to specific time periods; for instance, “Mexico—History—1910-1946” shows at least 388 items.  The Southwest and Border Studies Collection is especially rich in these resources.  The reference section has several Mexican and Latin American encyclopedias, including  Encyclopedia of Mexico: History, Society, and Culture, edited by Michael S. Werner.  Depending on your topic, you may want to look at other reference books like ones about ancient cultures that will tell about 20th-century efforts to restore archaeological sites.
