NotesBibliography


"This is a highly original work. It is the first book-length study which explores the role of women in Mexican politics. Second, it incorporates the exploration of women within the context of democratization in Mexico, thereby expanding its relevance to a larger issue, one which deservedly has received much attention recently. Therefore, this book offers unique insights compared to other analyses of women in politics and consequently will appeal to a broader audience." Roderic Ai Camp, author of Mexico's Mandarins: Crafting a Power Elite for the Twenty-First Century "Victoria Rodriquez's book helps fill a significant gap in the literature... a very enjoyable book that is an important contribution to our understanding of both Mexican politics and women's political participation."--Journal of Latin American Studies, May 2004
