Empire and Revolution


University of California Press

This chapter examines the political crisis in Mexico under the administration of Adolfo de la Huerta. In 1920 a new era in relations between Mexico and the U.S. began. But as American and Mexican officials sought a working relationship satisfactory to both sides, their respective publics continued to pressure them. Special committees representing American interests continued to negotiate with the Mexican government while Mexican workers sought the realization of their rights as written in the Constitution of 1917 and demanded that foreign companies accept national laws. During this period, nationalism was growing among the general Mexican populace and the elites, and they began pressing for the Mexicanization of all national assets.

Keywords:   political crisis, Mexico, Adolfo de la Huerta, U.S., Constitution of 1917, foreign companies, nationalism, Mexicanization, national assets
