Since its founding, Qui???n magazine has been dedicated to investigating the lives and contradictions of public figures. As??? en los pinos como en la tierra is a war diary that focused on the publication's writing and on-the-ground research. In recording the history of its investigations of the Pe???a, Calder???n, Fox, Zedillo, Salinas de Gortari, L???pez Portillo, and D???az Ordaz families, the authors build a probing portrait of Mexican politicians and their relationship with the media and the public.
