What People are Saying About This

Roderic Ai Camp

"This is a highly original work. It is the first book-length study which explores the role of women in Mexican politics. Second, it incorporates the exploration of women within the context of democratization in Mexico, thereby expanding its relevance to a larger issue, one which deservedly has received much attention recently. Therefore, this book offers unique insights compared to other analyses of women in politics and consequently will appeal to a broader audience."
