Overview

"Mexico made a peaceful transition to democracy when it elected opposition candidate Vicente Fox president in July 2000 - an event that has had a profound impact on the country's political system, its economic and social policy, and its international relationships. Mexico Under Fox examines the elements of continuity and change found in Mexico today." The authors consider the changing nature of Mexico's party system and the growing influence of noninstitutional political actors. They also explore the debate over social-policy reform and the conflict between vested economic interests and the forces favoring a more open economy. In the final chapters, they discuss the impact of Mexico's democratic transition, as well as the September 11 terrorist attacks, on Mexico-U.S. relations.
