Abstract:

This volume explores Mexico's political development over the course of the twentieth-century and examines the most important policy issues facing Mexico in the twenty-first century. Beginning with the 1910 Revolution, the first half of the book explains the creation of Mexico's single-party system, headed by the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party). It describes the "classic" PRI system's characteristics, an account of the PRI's demise, and an examination of how the country's institutions evolved under two successive PAN (National Action Party) presidential administrations. The second half of the book analyzes the most pressing policy issues facing Mexican society, including poverty and inequality, gender and indigenous issues, rule of law, and trade relations with the United States and other countries.
