Summary
In the late 19th century, Mexicans quickly adopted new technologies imported from abroad to sew cloth, manufacture glass bottles, refine minerals, and provide many other goods and services across the economy. New technologies underlay rapid economic growth as well as cultural change and social dislocation. This book traces general trends across the Mexican economy and offers new case studies of the canonical technologies of the first industrial revolution and of the late nineteenth century
