Overview

Crandall and his co-editors, affiliated with the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), present a collection of nine chapters portraying a realistic picture of Mexican politics and economics as it transitions to democracy. While the 2000 presidential election ousted the "elected authoritarian" monopoly of the world's longest- reigning political party, barriers still exist in making the country's new democracy work: most notably, economic dependency on the US. Several area experts trace the history of this transformation and consider Mexico as a model, rather than a unique case, for comparative analysis. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
