Mexican Visitors to the United States: Observations and Options
Mexican or Mexico-based intellectuals and artists who wrote about American society as a result of their travels or residence in this country are the subject of this bibliography. Some of the writers were political exiles or refugees from war, while others were students or travelers. Most of them admired representative democracy. What they most disliked were empty streets on weekends, the climate, and the food. What most surprised them were the religious rituals of the Protestant churches. A chronological arrangement for this bibliography was adopted because the books selected reflect the flavor of the changing times in both Mexico and the United States. All of the books listed are available at the Benson Latin American Collection and one microform in located in PCL.
