This article examines the role the military has played in the modern political life of Mexico. This role is analyzed within the civic-military relations that were secured after the revolution, the national security crisis, and the peculiarities in Mexico's process of democratization. It shows that Mexico has gone through a relevant process of democratization for the past twenty years, which has changed civic-military relations but left the most basic characteristics intact.

Keywords: modern political life; civic-military relations; revolution; national security crisis; democratization process
