Rodriguez portrays Mexico and the United States as moral rivals for California. Tragic Mexico and the comedic United States, ironically, have traded roles by the end of the twentieth century. Rodriguez's ferocious essays are no more regional than were Montaigne's. His play of ideas and incident, the scope of these essays, becomes a spiritual autobiography.
