This event will serve to launch two recent books on twentieth-century Mexican history, Thomas Rath's Myths of Demilitarization in Postrevolutionary Mexico, 1920-1960 (University of North Carolina Press, 2013), and Paul Gillingham and Benjamin Smith's edited volume, Dictablanda: Politics, Work, and Culture in Mexico, 1938-1968 (Duke University Press, 2014).

To discuss the contribution of these new publications to the history of postrevolutionary Mexico and of the PRI, authors Thomas Rath (UCL) and Benjamin Smith (Warwick) will be joined by historians of Mexico Alan Knight (Oxford) and Ben Fallaw (Colby College).

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
