This paper looks at four separate issues regarding the Mexican-American War and its history and after-effects. The main questions examined are the imperialism involved in the war, the role of Santa Anna, the subsequent relationship between the two countries and the issues between them and finally the problems in bilingual education in California under governor Pete Wilson.

From the Paper:

"The history of the United States' relationship with Mexico is complex and war-torn and the Mexican-American War of 1846-48 is is an important milestone and point of departure in that relationship. This paper will look at some of the background of the war, questioning the role of American imperialism in the conflict, the role played by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna and the impact this war has had on US-Mexico relations subsequently, especially in border control disputes and bilingual education. At the beginning of 1845 California, Arizona and New Mexico belonged to Mexico and Texas was an independent country, having recently been won from Mexico, but on July 15, Texas became part of the United States (Fowler 240)."
