Social movements and political culture (knowledge of history and social organization) are living analytical elements of social composition existing in the network of a present day social relations. Under this supposition a new method for the construction of contemporary history taken from the memory that the social actors have of the changes and tendencies of the present, is proposed. The need arises to trace the lines of relation and force among the national, the regional and the local from the knowledge and discourse of social agents close to their insertion into contemporary daily life trough their political culture. This is defined as the consciousness of the individuals about their forms of organization and their history, which does not always coinciding with the official version. This article provides a key to a methodological and theoretical reading of the "other" history of present day Mexico.
