"Although this study is largely an economic history of the Mexican mining industry from the end of the nineteenth to the middle of the twentieth centuries, it gives perspective to the development problems of this foreign-owned industry against the background of Mexican national growth and political change. The patterns of the industry's structure and operations are seen as a product of many forces--domestic and foreign, technological and social. Its present position in Mexico's economic and political life is the result of complex history which is too often ignored by easy and glib explanations of the industry's ills and it probably future."
