"[Hughes] avoids falling into facile explanations about the relationship between political change an the press. Instead, she sets out to examine the multiple variables that affect press performance.

It will also be very useful to anyone interested in the wider democratization process in Mexico and provides an interesting analytical model for how the media evolve in other areas of the world moving out of authoritarianism."
-- Journal of Latin American Studies
