Las ideas sobre criminalidad y alcoholismo fueron una parte importante de las ideas sociales de las elites porfirianas. Alrededor de ellas se construyeron categorias que servian para distinguir y jerarquizar a los grupos sociales. Los estudiosos mexicanos buscaron las peculiaridades nacionales de esos vicios mediante la observacion cientifica y el uso de modelos explicativos importados. Sin embargo, no llegaron a establecer un consenso sobre la forma de tratar con ambos problemas.
