(p.1) Introduction
The Making of Law
Stanford University Press

This book documents the development of labor law in Mexico from 1875 to 1931. It examines the role of labor law and workers' movements in the organization of the new state and its corresponding revolutionary ideology following the enactment of the constitution of 1917. It also considers the significance of the federal judiciary's adjudication of labor disputes and interpretation of new legal principles in the evolution of Mexico's political and social systems after 1917. In addition, the book looks at the rulings of Supreme Court justices in labor cases, provides an overview of Mexico's legal system, and discusses the politics of industrial relations as expressed in legal terms, liberal principles that informed workers' rights in the nineteenth century, and the labor policies of Porfirio Díaz's regime in the first decade of the twentieth century.

Keywords:   labor law, Mexico, workers' movements, Supreme Court, legal system, Porfirio Díaz, judiciary, labor disputes, industrial relations, politics
