Sons of the Mexican Revolution : Miguel Alemán and his generation by Ryan M Alexander( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1946 Mexican presidential election signaled the ascent of a new generation of cosmopolitan civilian government officials, led by the magnetic lawyer Miguel Alemán. Supporters hailed them as modernizing visionaries whose policies laid the foundation for unprecedented economic growth, while critics decried the administration's toleration of rampant corruption, hostility to organized labor, and indifference to the rural poor. Setting aside these extremes of opinion in favor of a more balanced analysis, Sons of the Mexican Revolution traces the socialization of this ruling generation's members, from their earliest education through their rise to national prominence. Using a wide array of new archival sources, the author demonstrates that the transformative political decisions made by these men represented both their collective values as a generation and their effort to adapt those values to the realities of the Cold War."--Publisher's description
Los gobernadores : caciques del pasado y del presente by Andrew Paxman( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somos testigos de una nueva época de corrupción y caciquismo en los estados. Desde los desfalcos de Javier Duarte hasta la mano dura de Rafael Moreno Valle, muchos gobernadores recientes son prueba contundente de que una mayor democracia electoral no necesariamente se traduce en un mayor Estado de derecho. Aun la Jefatura de Gobierno de Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a pesar de sus logros, fue criticada como autoritaria y tolerante de la venalidad. Por medio de doce perfiles, los colaboradores de este tomo - la mitad periodistas, la mitad académicos - señalan las raíces de la conducta caciquil y documentan el modus operandi de varios de los gobernadores "sobresalientes" de nuestros tiempos"--Page 4 of cover
