Sample text

In chapter 1, Rodrigo Moreno Gutiérrez analyzes the memory and representation of Rafael del Riego’s pronunciamiento in Mexico during 1820–21. He examines how the news of the constitution’s reestablishment was spread; how public writers interpreted it; and how these commentators projected, reconstructed, and commemorated that political-military history on the eve of Mexico’s independence, considering the role the memory of that pronunciamiento played in Iturbide’s own pronunciamiento of Iguala. We learn how early pronunciados were remembered, commemorated, and celebrated in the press, in songs and pamphlets, and how the representation of Riego’s pronunciamiento — notwithstanding the crown’s attempt to attribute the restoration of the 1812 charter to its own magnanimity — decisively undermined Introduction xxxi the Ancien Regime’s legitimacy and made way for other forms of political negotiation.

In the case of McDonald’s executed pronunciados we discover that they were celebrated both as criminals and as heroic martyrs at distinct moments in time, only to be largely forgotten, depending on who was in power and what political gains could be drawn from condemning them, venerating them, or deliberately forgetting them. Shara Ali’s chapter on how the dangerous and flawed hero Santiago Imán and his pronunciamiento of Valladolid were coopted by the Mérida elite to legitimize and popularize their separate, albeit allegedly supportive local-based coup of 18 February 1840, highlights only too well how the authorities could (and can) manipulate a potentially dangerous and damaging insurrectionary movement to suit their own ends by taking over the revolution in the first instance and then pacifying its more radical leaders (in this case Imán) by turning them into part of the establishment as official figures of veneration.

However, as becomes evident in chapter 2, while the pronunciamiento of Iguala, like that of Cabezas de San Juan, went on to be celebrated, commemorated, and duly venerated, the same cannot be said of its visible author and leader, Agustín de Iturbide. Richard Warren forces us to reflect on the importance of the question of selectivity and provides a fascinating study of how, in the case of a flawed hero like Iturbide, sanguinary royalist turned liberator-cum-emperor/tyrant, as the nineteenth century unfolded the establishment gradually found a way of erasing him from the picture, giving prominence to Miguel Hidalgo and the initiators of the 1810 independence movement, and celebrating the Plan of Iguala without mentioning the part Iturbide played in it, attributing the achievements of 1821 to “a general force” rather than a forceful general.
