RIVERA MIR, Sebastián. The Workers of the National Graphic Workshop: From Union Struggles to State Centralization (1934-1940). Hist. mex. [online]. 2018, vol.68, n.2, pp.611-656. ISSN 2448-6531.

This article seeks to analyze the processes that affected the National Graphic Workshop during the administration of Lázaro Cárdenas, seeing them as one fragment of the history of the development of the post-revolutionary state and its mechanisms for dealing with its bureaucracy. Methodologically, it analyzes the conjunction of intra-state dynamics with pressures from outside the state, including negotiations between different government agencies and the processes through which workers and their political projects were implicated as actors in a particular mode of constructing the state. Its sources include various governmental archives, as well as the books and pamphlets produced by the National Graphic Workshop, aiming to provide different perspectives on its analysis.
