This reissue of Professor Vanderwood's groundbreaking study-available again for the first time in a decade-examines bandits, police, and Mexican politics as a whole, showing how different groups used the agents of order and disorder to serve their interests. Originally published in 1981, Disorder and Progress was revised and updated in 1992.

Paul Vanderwood is professor of Mexican history at San Diego State University.


The first edition represented a major breakthrough in Mexican historiography; the revised and enlarged edition now presents a thoughtful brilliance of a historian at the height of his reflective powers. This book will delight the scholar and fascinate the general reader. -- Colin MacLachlan, Tulane University Already a standard for students of banditry and police in modernizing societies... The book's vibrant, humanistic narratives make it a natural for classroom use. Vanderwood's new introduction will be required reading. -- Gilbert M. Joseph, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Will be of interest not only to students of Mexican history but also to those concerned with the development of national police forces and their roles in political life.
