His first major foray was as a writer of documentaries based on major figures of the Mexican Revolution, along with books on those figures in the mass distribution market.

This transformation is due to Castañeda’s emerging role as a transnationalized interpreter of Mexican reality, whose work on Mexico is constructed upon his dialogues with European and North American academic and journalistic circles. In México: El futuro en juego (1987), a compilation of his journalistic writings from the mid-1980s, Castañeda sheds the Leninist terminology and adopts issues of diplomacy to assess Mexico’s political and social transitions.
