(p.68) 5 Implementing the Constitution of 1917
The Socialist Impulse

Charles D. Ameringer

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the implementation of the Constitution of 1917, which was a slow and uneven process. The Constitution is credited for setting the course for the creation of a socialist society, but no national leader provided his/her full commitment to its achievement until Lázaro Cárdenas in 1934. Thanks to Cárdenas' efforts, Mexico remained on the road to socialism and had yet to succeed or fail.

Keywords:   implementation, 1917 Constitution, socialist society, Mexico, socialism, Lázaro Cárdenas
