  • 1. Mid-Term Report
    Tommy Beasley
    History 30
    Mr. Arguello
  • 2. Grabman
    Richard Grabman’sGods, Gachupines and Gringos: A People’s History of Mexico was an extremely interesting book to read. I was amazed to learn the different information about Mexico's early Indian civilizations. The information about the Aztecs and the Spanish Conquest were also exciting to me. He went into great detail and gave me everything I needed to know about these important topics.
  • 3. Grabman
    The Spanish colonization was by far my favorite to read about. When a group of conquistadors attacked the Pre Columbian civilizations (The Incas, Mayans and Aztecs) It was perfect timing in that the diseases were spread across the Native American Civilizations.
  • 4. Grabman
    Another interesting topic was the Independence. The Spanish War was a military conflict between Spain and the United States that began in April 1898. The war started after the American demand of Spain resolving the Cuban fight for independence was denied. Under the jurisdiction of the United States Military Government, the United States occupied Cuba until 1902.
  • 5. Lida
    David Lida went above and beyond to give the readers a view of the place as it's experienced by those who live there. "First Stop in the New World” was very entertaining and exciting to read. Once I started reading this book it was hard for me to put it down. After reading this book it makes you want to visit Mexico and experience some of the things Lida went through.
  • 6. Lida
    Another part I found very interesting was Lida’s experience at the Cantina’s. The Cantina’s in Mexico sound crazy. People getting so drunk they can barely stand, yet the restaurant will still serve them alcohol. Live bands playing guitars and violins. It sounds like a great experience.
  • 7. Lida
    I found it very interesting when Lida talked about the craze of Mexican wrestling known as luchalibre. The atmosphere of the stadium sounds amazing. When thinking of wrestling I think of WWE. Luchalibre sounds a whole lot more exciting.
  • 8. Castaneda
    Castaneda emphasizes the issue of seasonality. As a result of stricter border enforcement, the numbers of migrants returning periodically to Mexico have been considerably reduced, while the population of permanent Mexican immigrants in the U.S. continues to grow. The numbers have grown to about 11 million in 2007.
  • 9. Castaneda
    Castaneda was one of the architects of the proposed U.S./Mexico migration agreement in 2001. When Mexicans would try and cross the border they would risk getting injured, sick or even death. When trying to cross the border immigrants were dying of sunstroke, dehydration, snakebite, and exposure.
