Ahead of closing out our Lessons of Guerrero series on Sunday, we’ve unlocked the second episode so you can catch up!

Danny and Derek welcome back Alexander Aviña, associate professor of history at Arizona State University, to continue the discussion of his book Specters of Revolution: Peasant Guerrillas in the Cold War Mexican Countryside. In this episode, they pick up in the 1970s and discuss President Luis Echeverría, the advent of neoliberalism in Mexico, the 1982 default, the transformation of the drug trade in the 1980s, changes in the PRI during the same era, the 1985 Mexico City earthquake, and more through the 1995 Aguas Blancas massacre.
