- Oxford University Press, USA
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the important role of Congress and the special relationship between presidents Fox and Bush, and it provides previously unpublished survey research on Mexican beliefs about democracy.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.
