about this item

This work for university students and historians examines the impact of Mexican president Miguel Alem&’a&n and the Alem&’a&n Generation, a group of politicians, civil servants, and lawyers who made social and political connections as they went through common educational experiences in the 1920s. The book describes factors that influenced this generation of Mexican politicians and leaders and reports on how they adapted revolutionary values to the geopolitical and economic conditions of the early Cold War era. The study evaluates their impact on their times, looking at their positive economic and social policies as well as their actions against organized labor and the rural poor. An appendix offers a chart giving basic data on schools, prominent positions, and early professional connections for 63 members of the Alem&’a&n Generation. The book includes b&w historical photos.
