Mexico's Politics and Society in Transition
As electoral politics in Mexico have become more open and democratic, the country's economy also has been thoroughly restructured and new ideas about government, state-society relations, and Mexico's place in the international system have taken hold. Mexico's Politics and Society in Transition explores these interrelated trends. Offering fresh perspectives on the contemporary problems on the Mexican agenda, the authors cogently discuss the politics of change, the challenges of social development, and the realities of building a productive, mutually beneficial U.S.-Mexico relationship.
