Thoroughly grounded in Mexican history, based on extensive field research and unpublished survey data from Mexican public opinion polls, this introduction to the politics of Mexico examines not only the roots of its contemporary political culture, but the structure of government, electoral process, issues of corruption and foreign policy, and possible future directions. Covering citizen values as well as institutions, it examines socialization, citizen participation and voting, and leadership recruitment. Comparing Mexico's political processes to those of the U.S. and other nations, this pathbreaking work also offers a comprehensive examination of American influence on domestic Mexican politics. It is essential reading for anyone fascinated by Mexico, or the broader realm of comparative politics.--Publisher description
Mexico : what everyone needs to know by Roderic A Camp( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today all would agree that Mexico and the United States have never been closer, that the fates of the two republics are inextricably intertwined. It has become an intimate part of life in almost every community in the United States, through immigration, imported produce, business ties, or illegal drugs. It is less a neighbor than a sibling; no matter what our differences, it is intricately a part of our existence. In this contribution to Oxford's acclaimed series, What Everyone Needs to Know, the author gives readers the most essential information about our sister republic to the south. He organizes chapters around major themes such as security and violence, economic development, foreign relations, the colonial heritage, and more. He asks questions that take us beyond the headlines: Why does Mexico have so much drug violence? What was the impact of the North American Free Trade Agreement? How democratic is Mexico? Who were Benito Juarez and Pancho Villa? What is the PRI (the Institutional Revolutionary Party)? The answers are sometimes surprising. Despite ratification of NAFTA, for example, Mexico has fallen behind Brazil and Chile in economic growth and rates of poverty. He explains that lack of labor flexibility, along with low levels of transparency and high levels of corruption, make Mexico less competitive than some other Latin American countries. The drug trade, of course, enhances corruption and feeds on poverty; approximately 450,000 Mexicans now work in this sector. But he also reveals that President Calderon's recent assault on narcotics smugglers, and the violence resulting from it, may have actually lessened the government's control of parts of the country and national institutions
Intellectuals and the state in twentieth-century Mexico by Roderic A Camp( Book )

16 editions published between 1985 and 1995 in Spanish and English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In developing countries, the extent to which intellectuals disengage themselves in state activities has widespread consequences for the social, political, and economic development of those societies. Roderic Camp's examination of intellectuals in Mexico is the first study of a Latin American country to detail the structure of intellectual life, rather than merely considering intellectual ideas. Camp has used original sources, including extensive interviews, to provide new data about the evolution of leading Mexican intellectuals and their relationship to politics and politicians since 1920.--Publisher description
Democracy in Latin America : patterns and cycles by Roderic A Camp( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collection of some of the best articles previously published by political scientists on the problems of democracy and development in Latin America highlight the nature of intellectual debate on the subject. Brief introduction by Mattiace and Camp examines the scholarly work on the conditions and variables - political culture and structure, grass-roots democratic practices, and economic crisis management - that are essential to constructing and consolidating a democratic regime. Although useful for providing a historical context on the nature of democracy and development in Latin America, the overall value of the volume is hampered by the absence of an index"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57

Mexican political biographies, 1935-2009 by Roderic A Camp( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fourth edition of Roderic Camp's highly respected Mexican Political Biographies is an updated comprehensive biographical directory of leading state and national politicians in Mexico, covering the years 1935-2009. The original edition, published in 1976, was the first and only comprehensive biographical work on contemporary political figures in any language and served as the prototype for the Mexican government's brief foray into its own official biographical directory. The Mexican Supreme Court has cited every biography of justices in the third edition as the basis of its biographies in the late 1980s. With updates of the existing biographies and appendices, plus almost 1,000 additional biographies, this fourth edition now features close to 3,000 entries and serves as a unique resource list of the chronological occupants of all leading national political posts. The need for such information has become even more pronounced since Mexico's political transformation from a semi-authoritarian to a democratic model. This latest edition allows readers access to information about Mexican politicians into the new century, and like its earlier versions, will be a valuable tool for government officials, journalists, historians, social scientists, the business community, and students
