Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Monserrat Urena
This book is part of the "Modern World Leaders" series and focuses on the life of Mexico's current president, Felipe Calderon. It is an interesting life that is only peripherally explored, because interwoven in the story of Calderon's life and that of his very politically-focused family is the long struggle between the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and National Action Party (PAN) for political dominance. From here, the author sets to cover a vast amount of territory by dealing with some of the history of the PRI and PAN respectively. From there, the shift then moves back to Calderon's presence in the PAN and his bid for the presidency. (It is noted that despite his long association with the PAN, he did not have the support of Vicente Fox.) This leads to an analysis of Calderon's campaign. Then, it shifts to a focus on his opponent and the party he represents, which leads to the contested presidential election of 2006 that left Mexico without a president for a short period of time. The ultimate culmination of the text is Calderon's ultimate rise to the role of president. I have read this book several times and always come to the same conclusion. It feels as though I am reading someone's term paper. The information feels shallow, and the presentation is stale. I cannot recommend this book. Reviewer: Monserrat Urena
