Thoroughly grounded in Mexican history and based on extensive field research, this introduction examines the roots of Mexico's contemporary political culture and its democratic transformation. Now in its fifth edition, Politics in Mexico has been completely updated and revised to cover the 2006 presidential elections. Featuring data from four recent major research projects, the book discusses the historical background and evolution of voter behavior responsible for sweeping Mr. Fox into office in 2000 and electing his successor in 2006. It analyzes the increasingly important role of Congress, and the relationship between Mexico and the United States. This edition features new data and tables based on original survey research that strengthens existing coverage of women, religion and politics, decision-making, political participation, citizen socialization, voter behavior, federalism, 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.
