During the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz, from 1876 to 1911, Mexico underwent modernization, producing a fierce struggle between the traditional and the new and exacerbating class antagonisms. William H. Beezley's absorbing social history of the Porfirian era, Judas at the Jockey Club , examines a broad range of topics from sports to technology as well as the traditional Easter-time Judas burnings that became a primary focus of the strife during these years.
