This brief article surveys the scholarly and political contexts in which Tzvi Medin’s book Ideología y praxis política de Lázaro Cárdenas was published in Mexico. To that end, the works on the life and achievements of the former Mexican president are evoked as the bibliographical corpus existing prior to 1972, the year in which Medin’s book was published. This allows us to situate the importance of Medin’s study as part of a large mass of academic and periodical texts published since 1972.
