Although Mexico began its national life in 1821 as one of the most liberal democracies in the world, it ended the century with an authoritarian regime.

As the first systematic exploration of the country's liberal tradition, this volume provides a nuanced and comprehensive analysis of the transformation of liberalism in Mexico.
