El Petroleo es Nuestro: A History of Oil in Mexico
About This Show
Show Info: Mexico's experience with oil contrasts sharply to the development of the same resource from the same formations in the United States, and it illustrates the most salient cultural, political, and historical differences between the two countries. "El Petroleo es Nuestro" uses the history of oil in Mexico to tell the story of the development of modern Mexico and its national institutions.
