Introduction xxxv 17. For instance, the pronunciamiento of 2 January 1832 in Veracruz resulted in a particularly bloody year-long civil war. As for a coup “disguised as a pronunciamiento,” the so-called pronunciamiento of Mariano Salas in Mexico City on 4 August 1846 and which overthrew Mariano Paredes y Arrillaga’s dictatorship was a coup in all but name.

A failed campaign of reconquest in 1842–43 simply stoked the 2 Rugeley fires; and when the United States invaded Mexico three years later, the crisis reignited smoldering enmities over regional power. These increasingly nasty tussles antagonized the Maya peasants, one (relatively limited) segment of whom responded with an uprising known as the Caste War. Counterinsurgency naturally followed. But just as something resembling peace returned, political violence erupted all over again with Yucatán’s version of the Reform War: coup after coup, selected assassinations, barracks uprisings lubricated through bribes, deposed governors bayoneted in the stomach, and a revived campaign of raids on the part of Maya rebels.

In other words, the pronunciamiento was as much about negotiation, consultation, and compromise as about intimidation and confrontation. It was Santa Anna’s disposition to compromise, disguise his intentions, endorse the more popular demands of others, and build, as a result, resonant regional and national coalitions that ultimately made him into a truly consummate pronunciado. Erika Pani builds on this view by arguing in chapter 11 that for a pronunciamiento to succeed it was important for the texts’ stated objectives to be as broad as possible, to elicit significant support in the form of successive waves of actas de adhesión, or statements of allegiance.
