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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Following the format of their successful Mexico Under Zedillo, Rubio (president, Ctr. for Research and Development, Mexico City) and Purcell (Americas Society and Council of the Americas) offer an in-depth analysis of Mexican president Fox at the midpoint of his six-year term. Fox's initial relationship with President Bush was soured by the events of 9/11 and Mexico's opposition, as a member of the UN Security Council, to the war in Iraq. Economic and social ties between the two nations have been strained, creating a diplomatic divide over immigration, future economic cooperation, and the war on drugs. Not surprisingly, Fox's ratings improved domestically when Mexico voted against the United States in the UN. Yet Fox has little power, and the promise of a new democracy faded rapidly under a system Rubio describes as gridlock. These six insightful essays (five by Mexican scholars) provide fresh views of Mexico's government under Fox, including the political roadblocks presented by the still strong Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Of special interest is Juan Pardinas's powerful essay on Mexican poverty and its impact. Recommended for academic libraries.-Boyd Childress, Auburn Univ. Libs.
