Overview

Mexico's foreign policy toward the United States is in a period of transition, sparked by the passage of NAFTA and sustained by ongoing political, economic, and environmental concerns. Here, distinguished scholars from Mexico, the U.S., and the U.K. take up questions relating to the future of Mexico-U.S. relations in crucial areas including lobbying and diplomacy, labor relations, immigration and expatriation, and international finance.

Author Biography: Rodolfo O. de la Garza is Mike Hogg Professor of Community Affairs in the department of government at the University of Texas at Austin. Jesœs Velasco is professor of political science, Centro de Investigacion y Docencia Econ-micas, Mexico City.
