This book is a study of the political development of the many factions that surfaced in Mexico from the achievement of independence in 1821 to General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna's last government in 1853-55. Paying particular attention to the writings of the main thinkers of the period and the ways in which they inspired or were betrayed by their respective factions, this volume concentrates on the evolution of the different factions (traditionalists, moderates, radicals, and santanistas), who sustained their beliefs at one point or another. It follows a chronological approach and puts significant emphasis to the way the hopes of the 1820s degenerated into the despair of the 1840s, and how these in turn affected the evolution of the different factions' political proposals.

Political proposals and ideologies were important in independent Mexico; it was an age of proposals. Various constitutional projects were proposed, discussed, attempted, or dismissed. This study offers a comprehensive analysis of how the generalized liberal principles of early republican Mexico became fractured into numerous conflicting political proposals and movements. In response to the ever-changing political landscape of the new nation, the emergent Mexican political class was prevented from achieving the ever-evasive constitutional order, unity, progress, and stability all dreamed of experiencing when General Agustin de Iturbide marched into Mexico City on September 27, 1821. Appendices with a glossary, chronologies, and description of major personalities are included.

WILL FOWLER lectures in Latin American and Spanish history and literature at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

Review:

""This is a complex and ambitious study that should be read by anyone who wishes to grapple with the politics of the epoch...Fowler cleans the slate of old generalities and the simplifications that appear in almost all text-books on the history of Mexico.""-Mexican Studies/Estudios Mexicanos

..."a clear and meaningful synthesis of recent scholarship on political and social thought during the tragic formative era of the Mexican nation."-Choice

"[T]he book will be useful to specialists. It also successfully makes the case for further research on ideological currents and parties in the period."-Americas

"Fowler's book is ambitious and far-reaching, very helpful in clarifying strands of political thought in the first thirty years after Mexican independence. It is particularly insightful in its presentation of the impact of chronology and changing circumstances on political ideology."-Timothy E. Anna University of Manitoba
