A Life Together

Eric Van Young

Yale University Press

Against the background of the disastrous war with the United States and his own earlier political stance as a conservative centralist republican, Alamán is seen founding two highly conservative Mexico City newspapers in which increasingly extreme political positions are argued in the late 1840s and early 1850s. He is involved with the Spanish ambassador in a pro-monarchical “conspiracy” to place a Bourbon prince back on the throne of Mexico, although in the end the plot did not flourish.
