Product Overview

Mexico finally shed its authoritarian past with the victory of the PAN candidate Vicente Fox in the 2000 election. But the consolidation and growth of democracy in Mexico have been complicated by the institutional residues of the past. In particular, the opposition parties, PAN and PRD, that helped dislodge the long-ruling PRI from its historical dominance of Mexican politics have been hampered by decisions their leaders made about organizing party life that sought to escape what they viewed as the authoritarian legacies of the PRI. The irony is that in striving for intraparty democracy, the PAN and PRD have rendered themselves less effective as vehicles for the promotion of democracy in the society at large.
