Overview

This volume examines revolutionary Mexico's state governors - the most significant intermediaries between the national government and the people it ruled. Leading scholars study governors from ten different states of Mexico during the eventful first half of the twentieth century to demonstrate the diversity of the governors' experiences over time, as well as the waxing and waning of strong governorship as an institution that disappeared in the powerful national regime created in the 1940s and 1950s. The only book that considers the state governors in comparative perspective, this invaluable study offers a fresh view of regionalism and the Revolution.
