Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed as an introduction to the history and mechanism of Mexican politics, this well-known text works within the larger framework of comparative politics. Combining the clarity and accessibility of the first edition, this fully updated second edition now includes the latest research in the field, examining not only the roots of Mexico's contemporary political culture, but its structure of government and electoral process. The book begins with an introductory essay that offers a rationale for why the reader should study other cultures and compares and contrasts the various unique features of Mexico with other countries, including the United States. It then explores the specifics, looking into such issues as corruption, the role of interest groups in Mexico, American influence on political decisions, the bi-lateral relationship, and foreign policy. The book also examines the nature and recruitment of political leaders, how decisions are reached, elections and political participation, political values and their consequences, the impact of political and economic modernization since 1988, and the possibilities for Mexico's future. The new second edition includes coverage of the NAFTA agreement, the Chiapas uprising, the 1994 elections, the new Zedillo administration, and the 1995 economic crisis.

Synopsis:

Thoroughly grounded in Mexican history, based on extensive field research and unpublished survey data from Mexican public opinion polls, this introduction to the politics of Mexico examines not only the roots of its contemporary political culture, but the structure of government, electoral process, issues of corruption and foreign policy, and possible future directions. Covering citizen values as well as institutions, it examines socialization, citizen participation and voting, and leadership recruitment. Comparing Mexico's political processes to those of the U.S. and other nations, this pathbreaking work also offers a comprehensive examination of American influence on domestic Mexican politics. It is essential reading for anyone fascinated by Mexico, or the broader realm of comparative politics.

Synopsis:

Thoroughly grounded in Mexican history and based on extensive field research, this introduction examines the roots of Mexico's contemporary political culture. Now in its fourth edition, Politics in Mexico has been completely updated and revised to cover the 2000 election of Vicente Fox to the

presidency of Mexico. Featuring data from two recent major research projects, the book discusses the historical background and evolution of voter behavior responsible for sweeping Mr. Fox into office. It analyzes the important role of Congress and the special relationship between presidents Fox and

Bush, and it provides previously unpublished survey research on Mexican beliefs about democracy. This edition also features new data and tables based on original research that strengthen existing coverage of women, religion, decision-making, political participation, citizen socialization, and

electoral politics. Engagingly written by one of the top scholars in the field, Politics in Mexico is essential reading for students of Mexican or Latin American politics, comparative politics, and Mexican history.
