MEXICO’S history falls into four epochs: the era of the Indian empire (before 1521), the Spanish colonial phase (1521–1810), the period of national formation (1810–1910) which includes the war of independence (1810–21) and the long presidency of Porfirio Diaz (1876–80,1884–1911), and the present period which began with the social revolution of 1911–21 and is regarded by Mexicans as the period of social and national consolidation.
