Overview

Six articles, presented by Rubio (president, CIDAC—Center of Research for Development, Mexico) and Purcell (vice president of the Americas Society and the Council for the Americas, US), collectively examine the social, political, and economic realities of Mexico under the presidency of Vincente Fox. After Rubio's consideration of the implications of Fox's historic upset of the formerly dominant Partido Revolucionario Institucionale on democratic politics in general, essays examine Fox's economic agenda, efforts to fight poverty, foreign policy, and U.S.-Mexican relations (this latter is discussed from both Mexican and U.S. perspectives in two separate articles).
