The Nineteenth-Century Heritage

(p.1) Chapter One Introduction
Emilio Rabasa and the Survival of Porfirian Liberalism
Stanford University Press

This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to present (as far as possible) a full biographical portrait of Emilio Rabasa, whose life spanned three critical but distinct periods: the era of Porfirio Díaz (1877–1911), the Revolution (1910–20), and the reconstructive years of the 1920s. Rabasa is of particular interest because his ideas and career constitute intellectual continuity and survival from the old regime to the new regime. It then compares Rabasa's reputation and continuing influence to those of other important Porfirian intellectuals. This is followed by a discussion of the Mexican version of historical constitutionalism which is revealed in three episodes from the 1820s to the 1890s.
