    The University of North Carolina Press 2013; US$ 105.00

    At the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1920, Mexico's large, rebellious army dominated national politics.

  • The Struggle for Mexicoby Debra D. Chapman

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 55.00

    In the 1970s political and economic changes to the world order led to an emerging "globalization" credited with the ceding of state sovereignty to a "de facto world government" of transnational corporations and with the anti-globalism movement directed at countering it. Mexico, however, has maintained the salience of the national... more...

  • Political Struggles and the Forging of Autonomous Government Agenciesby Professor Cristopher Ballinas Valdés

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 105.00

    Argues that autonomous agencies are not the result of a systematic design, but are produced by the interactions of political and bureaucratic forces. The case studies illustrate how political struggles between politicians and bureaucrats can create a muddle of agencies that lack coherence and are subject to conflicting levels of political control. more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    The question of democracy in post-revolutionary Mexican society is key to Mexico's future. In this book, each chapter recounts an event or particular historical sequence that sheds light on the relation between culture and sovereign exceptionality. Each moment or sequence stages a relation to language. In these speech scenes there is a disagreement... more...

    How can the seeds of accountability ever grow in authoritarian environments? Embedding accountability into the state is an inherently uneven, partial and contested process. Campaigns for public accountability often win limited concessions at best, but they can leave cracks in the system that serve as handholds for subsequent efforts to open up the... more...
