Mexico's Democracy at Work : Political and Economic Dynamics
Painting a sober yet hopeful picture of current Mexican politics and economics, Mexico s Democracy at Work focuses on the country s still incomplete transformation from an authoritarian system, as well as the many challenges that exist within the new, more democratic context. The authors pay particular attention to both domestic and international economic dynamics and to Mexico s relations with the U.S., with its neighbors in Latin America, and with the European Union.
