According to Enrique Krauze, the political history of Mexico has always been, to a great extent, a projection of the biographies of its leaders.

Análisis político de los sexenios priistas de los gobiernos de Calles, Lázaro Cárdenas, Manuel Ávila Camacho (1940-1946), Miguel Alemán (1946-1952), Adolfo Ruíz Cortines (1952-1958), Adolfo López Mateos (1958-1964), Gustavo Díaz Ordaz (1964-1970), Luis Echevarría Alvarez (1970-1976), José López Portillo (1976-1982), Miguel de la Madrid (1982-1988), Carlos Salinas de Gortari (1988-1994). Una lectura obligada para conocer el sistema político mexicano.
Lo que no me explico es que después de tres sexenios para el olvido de presidentes priistas (Díaz Ordaz, Echevarría y López Portillo) haya ganado Salinas de Gortari. ( )

Krauze termina su narración de la historia de México con el período de "revolución institucional". Su argumento a lo largo de los tres volúmenes de su historia---respecto al rol determinante de las biografías y personalidades de los líderes mexicanos en el destino del país---sufre en este último: claramente el período del PRI fue más estructurado, más institucional, más concerniente a los roles que a las almas. La Presidencia Imperial también está más hinchada con detalles que pierden relevancia al paso del tiempo. Aún así, un buen fin para una trilogía extremadamente recomendable ( )
