"To manage North American integration and security in an intelligent fashion, government policies need to be coordinated across internal agencies and international borders. This is no small challenge. Fortunately, this book takes up this challenge and runs with it." - Robert Simpson, Editor, Latin America Advisor "The events of 9/11/01 and their aftermath have dramatically changed the environment within which trade issues are considered. There is much research here that is effectively integrated so that the reader can better understand the economic, political, and social conditions now surrounding business decision making in the three NAFTA partners." - Edward J. Chambers, University of Alberta "Useful reading for all who are interested in the future of the NAFTA region. Highly recommended for those who choose to do business in Mexico." - Rosalie L. Tung, Simon Fraser University "The movement of goods, services, capital, and people between the United States and its two NAFTA partners - Canada and Mexico - is enormous. At the same time, there are legitimate concerns about improving control of the borders in order to contain terrorism. This book is a perfect read (and a readable one at that) for all those interested in knowing what is happening in North America and why it is so important to encourage the growing economic and social interaction among the three countries, even as we join together to fight terrorism." - Sidney Weintraub, University of Texas
