HERRERA LEON, Fabián. Mexico and the League of Nations: On Its Exclusion and Accession (1919-1931). Hist. mex. [online]. 2020, vol.69, n.4, pp.1647-1680.  Epub 02-Jun-2020. ISSN 2448-6531.

The signing of the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919 implied the formal marginalization of the Mexican Revolution from the League of Nations - the institutional framework for the ephemeral international system of the interwar period - for a little over a decade (1919-1931). A century later, there is still a certain ambiguity and confusion regarding this decision among the allied powers, which makes it even more difficult to understand the sustained isolation of Mexico from “International Geneva,” as well as its desire to participate at the margins of the existing multilateral diplomatic and collective security system nearly a decade later. This article argues that such an important turn had to do with a logical - but complicated - process of normalization of relations undertaken by the post-revolutionary regime. As soon as it was able, the Mexican government, with gradual efficacy, confronted a variety of external fears and demands, utilizing overly subtle and careful diplomatic techniques to avoid repeated attacks on its image on the world stage. This article concludes by studying the direct negotiations regarding Mexico’s accession to the League of Nations, analyzing the immediate benefits and implications for both parties.
