The contributors assess the role of the center-right National Action Party (PAN) in Mexico's transition to a democratic regime. A wave of local- and state-level PAN victories rolled over Mexico during the 1980s and 1990s as the party attracted prominent businessmen onto its candidate slates. Their successes paved the way for the July 2000 election of Vicente Fox, whose defeat of the PRI candidate marked the first alternation of parties at the presidential level in Mexico in over 70 years. Some chapters analyze broad issues of party strategy, development, and organization. Others present state-level analyses of the PAN in Baja California, Chihuahua, Guanajuato, and Yucatan, and how developments at this level paved the way for the national-level democratization of Mexican politics.
