A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. When the postwar boom began to dissipate in the late 1960s, Mexico s middle classes awoke to a new, economically terrifying world. And following massacres of students at peaceful protests in 1968 and 1971, one-party control of Mexican politics dissipated as well. The ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party struggled to recover its legitimacy, but instead saw its support begin to erode. In the following decades, Mexico s middle classes ended up shaping the history of economic and political crisis, facilitating the emergence of neo-liberalism and the transition to democracy.Waking from the Dream tells the story of this profound change from state-led development to neo-liberalism, and from a one-party state to electoral democracy. It describes the fraught history of these tectonic shifts, as politicians and citizens experimented with different strategies to end a series of crises. In the first study to dig deeply into the drama of the middle classes in this period, Walker shows how the most consequential struggles over Mexico s economy and political system occurred between the middle classes and the ruling party.

Synopsis :

When the postwar boom began to dissipate in the late 1960s, Mexico's middle classes awoke to a new, economically terrifying world. And following massacres of students at peaceful protests in 1968 and 1971, one-party control of Mexican politics dissipated as well. The ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party struggled to recover its legitimacy, but instead saw its support begin to erode. In the following decades, Mexico's middle classes ended up shaping the history of economic and political crisis, facilitating the emergence of neo-liberalism and the transition to democracy. Waking from the Dream tells the story of this profound change from state-led development to neo-liberalism, and from a one-party state to electoral democracy. It describes the fraught history of these tectonic shifts, as politicians and citizens experimented with different strategies to end a series of crises. In the first study to dig deeply into the drama of the middle classes in this period, Walker shows how the most consequential struggles over Mexico's economy and political system occurred between the middle classes and the ruling party.

Critique:

"Walker's work should point the way for a great deal of research in the years to come." - Alexander Dawson, The Americas: A Quarterly Review of Latin American History "In a creatively researched, pathbreaking study, she contends that the middle classes were both the barometer to measure the success and then decline of the postrevolutionary agenda of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), and the protagonists of late-20th-century Mexican history." - S. F. Voss, CHOICE "A very lively and most interesting read, on a topic which has received a disgraceful lack of attention - the author taps a rich new vein." - Barry Carr, La Trobe University and ANCLAS: Australian National University "This is an important work. Walker makes careful use of her sources to explain carefully how and why activism increased in the middle class during the late 20th century." - Linda B. Hall, University of New Mexico
