Casgliad o draethodau am y trawsnewid i ddemocratiaeth ym Mecsico, gan fyfyrio ar agweddau gwahanol ar ddiwylliant dinesig, y broses wleidyddol, brwydrau etholiadol a phwyntiau beirniadol. Ysgifennwyd y traethodau ar adegau gwahanol, ac er iddynt gael eu cywiro a'u haddasu, llwyddant i gadw'r tensiwn a'r tanbeidrwydd gwreiddiol.
This book is a collection of essays on the Mexican transition to democracy that offers reflections on different aspects of civic culture, the political process, electoral struggles, and critical junctures.

Professor Roger Bartra is a Research Fellow at the University of Mexico (UNAM), an anthropologist and sociologist. He is the author of several books on the Mexican political system, the European mythology of melancholy and the wild men, and the anthropology of the brain.
These essays provide the reader with a vision of what goes on behind those horrifying images that depict Mexico as a country plagued by narcotrafficking groups and subjected to unbridled homicidal violence. These images hide the complex political reality of the country and the accidents and shocks democracy has suffered.
