SANCHEZ SIERRA, Juan Carlos. Mystic crisis, education and youth: The formation of the journalism's moral profile in the Política review, 1960-1967. Estud. hist. mod. contemp. Mex [online]. 2013, n.45, pp.97-144. ISSN 0185-2620.

In this article the crisis of the nationalist mysticism is explored as a process that transformed the images of "the revolutionary" during the 1960 decade. The erosion of these symbols, youth education and popular culture, constituted central topics in left journalism. Through an inspection of Política (1960-1967), this article intends to identify how a heroic profile of the left was created in the 1960 decade, through an exam of the journalistic and intellectual context in which the Mexican Revolution crisis was analyzed by journalists and intellectuals.

Keywords : Journalism; left; heroism; mysticism; youth; education.
