Military Political Identity and Reformism in Independent Mexico: an Analysis of the Memorias de Guer




By Will Fowler. Published 1996. ISBN 9781900039109



Detailed Description

This study focuses on the political identity of one of the most influential institutions of the period, thus providing a new insight into the more general overview of Mexican political thought in its early national period. In a move away from recent trends in the historiography, which have tended to argue that the regular army either had no ideology or contained as many ideologies as there were in society at large, this study shows that amongst the military elite – specifically amongst those high-ranking officers who acted as Ministers of War during this period – there was a common political agenda.
