Summary:
Mexican politics is changing faster; and becoming more important to the United States, than at any time in the past sixty years, and this book shows that popular political organization plays a far more significant role in these changes than previously thought.

    schema:description "Mexican politics is changing faster; and becoming more important to the United States, than at any time in the past sixty years, and this book shows that popular political organization plays a far more significant role in these changes than previously thought. Democratic transitions across Latin America have raised the profile of popular movements, but this book argues that the existing theory provides an inadequate account of the organization, strategies, and identity of such movements. This book explores the process of popular mobilization in contemporary Mexico through the experience of the country's most important popular organization - the teachers' movement. It creates a distinctive perspective on Mexican politics and makes an original contribution to the study of popular, or "social," movements. This account of the teachers' movement in Mexico is the first in-depth study of a popular movement anywhere in Latin America, and it provides a richly detailed account of the movement's organization, leadership, strategic choices, and factional divisions. But it also links the trajectory of the movement to the shifting legal and institutional terrain that composes its political environment, thus revealing how it is shaped by, and how it shapes, the political system. Through its innovative methods, which produce an unusual and compelling blend of fact and theory, the book uncovers the motivations and mechanisms of popular mobilization, as well as explaining how popular mobilization interacts with national politics in Mexico and beyond."@en ;
