Based on information not available previously, this comprehensive study details the history, evolution, and changing relationship between the armed forces and civilian leadership in Mexico in the second half of the 20th century. Camp focuses on the past two decades during which democratic transformation produced important changes within the armed forces, in particular the navy. Despite institutional autonomy, a lack of reform, and an increase in civilian missions, the Mexican armed forces remain subordinate to civilian political authorities, and Camp finds little evidence to support the common notion that they are a significant threat to civilian supremacy in general or to the democratic process in particular.

Editorial Reviews

"Roderic Camp's impressive new book on Mexican civil-military relations from 1876 to the present provides an unprecedented look at the sociology of the Mexican officer corps, their relationship with Mexican elites, and their relationship with Mexican society at large....In multiple ways, this study significantly raises the bar for future research in the field."-Political Science Quarterly
