Hope and Frustration: Interviews with Leaders of Mexico's Political Opposition


Gil, Carlos. Hope and Frustration: Interviews with Leaders of Mexico's Political Opposition. Wilmington, DE: SR Books, 1992. Print.

This volume aims to spotlight six of contemporary Mexico's most important opposition figures. In-depth interviews conducted by Carlos B. Gil introduce the reader to such increasingly influential leaders as Jesus Gonzalez Schmal, of the conservative PAN; Cuauhtemoc Cardenas, the most successful opposition candidate in Mexico's history; and Jorge Alcocer Villanueva, who has long helped direct various offshoots of the Communist Party in Mexico. Dr. Gil has supplemented the interviews with biographical sketches of the leaders and chapters on the development of the Mexican party system, the recent rise of opposition parties, and the growing influence of Mexican-Americans on opposition candidates.
