MACHUCA GALLEGOS, Laura. Public opinion and repression in Yucatan: 1808-1816. Hist. mex. [online]. 2017, vol.66, n.4, pp.1687-1757. ISSN 2448-6531.

Across the Hispanic world, the first two decades of the 19th Century were characterized by the development of a new political force called public opinion. The objective of this article is to analyze its appearance in Merida, Yucatan: though far from the great centers of power, this city actively participated in the same political, social and cultural processes as the rest of ibero-America in the period starting in 1808. The author centers their attention on the Sanjuanistas, a group active during this time whose goal was to defend the Constitution of Cadiz. Yucatan, far from representing a local case, instead reveals the ins and outs of new forms of sociability, above all in the field of political practices, and their embrace by society.

Palabras llave : Yucatan; repression; public opinion; sanjuanistas; 20th Century.
