14. Fox's election was an important step forward in Mexican politics
It was the first time since the consolidation of the PRI in the 1920s and 1930s that a candidate from a party other than the Partido Revolucionario Institucional won. Mexico faces tremendous political and economic difficulties, but it is mistaken to place blame on Fox individually. Fox, at least, was willing to negotiate an agreement with the Zapatistas. EZLN still has disagreements over the treatment of indigenous and mestizo peoples in Chiapas, but tensions are considerably less than in the 1990s. Evidently Subcomandante Marcos is now working on a biography of Pancho Villa.

A recent article on the Zapatistas.
