Abstract : This thesis will explore the relationship between military professionalism and military political influence. While many scholars believe that increased military professionalism will 'depoliticize' the armed forces, others argue that professionalization encourages the military to assume an active and even dominant role in politics. Thus, within the context of these two opposing theories, this thesis will analyze the process of professionalization that the Mexican military experienced during the years 1917-1940, and the role it played in limiting the political influence of the Mexican military
