In the footsteps of the right. The National Action Party, 1939-2000 analyzes both the origins and the evolution of the National Action Party (PAN) from its creation in 1939 to 2000, the year in which the political force managed to reach -for the first time- presidential power and displace the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Tania Hernández dissects the political and social context of Mexico from the end of the Cristero War in 1929 to the six-year term of Vicente Fox Quesada, and explores the ideology that produced the creation of the PAN, the changes that it underwent as time went by, and the tensions within the same party as a result of the generation gap between its different leaders.
