Dilemmas of Political Change in Mexico

Kevin J. Middlebrook
Price: $ 24.95

The victory by Vicente Fox Quesada in Mexico¿s July 2000 presidential election was a watershed. His triumph convincingly marked the consolidation of electoral democracy and symbolized a clear break with the political regime established following the 1910¿1920 revolution. Nevertheless, many legacies of post-revolutionary authoritarianism persist, and Mexico¿s democratization process remains incomplete.

This book assesses contemporary Mexico¿s political dynamics and the many pending challenges in the construction of a more fully democratic political order. The authors examine changes affecting the party system, electoral institutions, and voting behavior; the evolving role of the armed forces, organized labor, big business, and rural producers; the new importance of civil society, the mass media, and cross-border social coalitions; and key issues of political representation and governance, including executive-legislative relations, judicial performance, federalism, the constitutional rights of indigenous peoples, and the political role of Mexicans resident in the United States.

Kevin J. Middlebrook is lecturer in politics at the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London. He was previously director of the Center for U.S.¿Mexican Studies at the University of California, San Diego.
