From Empire to Republic by Arthur H. Noll
This history of 19th century Mexico gives a fair and thorough report of the chaotic and tragically violent first century of Mexican independence. It delves much deeper into the complicated rivalries of those who sought to control Mexico and helps identify what the agendas of the competing factions really were. Unfortunately, it only follows Mexican history up through the reign of Porfirio Diaz and so does not deal with the Mexican revolution, but it provides an excellent background for the study of modern Mexico.
