A NEW HOPE
FOR MEXICO




The stunning victory of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) in yesterday’s Mexican presidential elections follows a campaign that pledged to tackle corruption, halt privatization of the oil industry, invest in education and infrastructure, open a dialogue with the country’s drug cartels, and oppose Donald Trump’s border wall.

In A New Hope for Mexico, López Obrador describes a long history of elite dishonesty that has undermined Mexican society, fueling inequality. Today just 10% of Mexicans control 64% of the nation’s income, a concentration of wealth spurred by selling off state owned industries to favored businessmen at cutthroat prices.

This was Lopez Obrador’s third tilt at the Mexican presidency. Now, at last, AMLO occupies Los Pinos, the presidential residence, and can begin to implement the bold vision for his country that he sets out in this essential new book.


“Andrés Manuel López Obrador pinpoints the key problems facing today’s Mexico, especially corruption at the highest level of government, and sets out what must be done to put them right. For anyone interested in politics south of the Rio Grande, and their impact in North America, this book is essential.”
—Greg Grandin, author of Fordlandia
