In-depth interviews with six of the most important opposition figures in Mexican politics, including Cuauhtemoc Cardenas, whose impressive showing in the 1988 presidential election galvanized the ruling PRI into significant internal reforms. An introductory essay by the editor speculates on how the opposition is mobilizing Mexican-Americans in the United States as part of its efforts to widen political space within Mexico.
