This book is about one of the key political actors in contemporary Mexican politics: Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO). This study describes the political environment surrounding the then Head of Government of Mexico City through his personality, his speech, and his decisions. The study seeks to understand how a politician like AMLO reached the peak of popularity and power in a new democracy immersed in a country with significant social inequalities. Politicians strengthen their popularity based on the ability they have to get their messages to the electorate. This study analyzes AMLO´s career in order to explain his position within Mexican politics. The study concludes that the risk of a lopizta government would be its gradual transformation into a PRI presidential style, without any of the advantages of the former hegemonic system.
