One thing that I love about being an attorney is that the law is intertwined with history, by which I mean that studying the past helps one to understand the law’s meaning and purposes.
The link between law and history seems especially strong in New Mexico because of our state’s compelling and unique past and culture. In New Mexico, history is never over.
Fortunately, there is an abundance of good reading about our beloved state. If you have never delved into New Mexico’s history and culature, I recommend to you this list of good books compiled by our State Historian, Rick Hendricks. I’ve read some of these titles, and look forward to adding more of these titles to my bedside table.
