(p.1) Introduction
British Lions and Mexican Eagles
Stanford University Press

This introduction chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the contribution of British engineer and oil industrialist Weetman Pearson on national development in Mexico in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth century. This volume offers arguments against the view which considers the success of nineteenth-century British businessmen overseas as a function of either the dynamic character of British formal or informal imperialism in the “golden age” of empire or of the inequalities within the structure of the international economy in the nineteenth-century Atlantic world. It also examines business and political conditions and British-Mexican relations during this period.

Keywords:   Weetman Pearson, British oil industrialist, Mexico, national development, British imperialism, international economy, inequalities, British-Mexican relations
