Political Contention in a Southern Mexican State: Oaxaca
THE SOUTHERN STATE OF OAXACA, which is poor and which has extremely unequal income distribution, shows particularly high levels of political factionalism. The present chapter is part of a three-section study on Oaxaca that identifies the main causes of APF. The initial part of this chapter examines Oaxaca’s social and economic structures and assesses the quality of its political and electoral institutions. Subsequently, the chapter describes the main instances of APF occurring in Oaxaca during the period 2000–2006 and locates these phenomena in each of the state’s sociocultural regions.
