Mario Alberto MagaÃ±a Mancillas is a historian from the University of Guadalajara, with expertise in population studies at El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, and a PhD in Social Sciences from the College of MichoacÃ¡n. His fields of study are the social, cultural and demographic history of groups of people that inhabited the central area of California during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In Indios, soldados y rancheros, Mancillas reconstructs the common past of the California central area comprised of the present Mexican state of Baja California, to San Fernando de ValicatÃ¡, along with the southern half of the present county of San Diego in the US. Successfully combining demography with social and cultural studies, the author manages to recreate a region through the monitoring of different human groups who composed it and their historical identities This book is based on a thorough investigation file, and is illustrated with beautiful photographs and evocative book maps. It was necessary to cover this period and leave the narrow confines of state history, and the author did this masterfully.
Slight scuffing on front cover and bump on spine, else a very good copy.
