Mexico's Hope tells the dramatic story of the making of modern Mexico, treating all the major developments of the past century of Mexican history.

Unusually attentive to the contributions of women, Indians, workers, and peasants,Mexico's Hope is informed by the conviction that the country's most promising prospects today lie in the quest of its poorest people for social justice and democracy-from the recent Zapatista uprisings in Chiapas to ongoing electoral efforts on the left.

From Our Editors

The history of Mexico is a study in contrasts, an examination of the division between the country’s rich and poor, between corrupt politics and democratic desires of the people. James D. Cockcroft examines Mexico’s troubled past, with emphasis placed on the role of women, Indians and the working class. Through an analysis of the country’s history, Mexico’s Hope concludes that the future for Mexico lies in the ongoing quest of the poorest and most marginalized groups for social freedom and democracy.
