As Mexico faces the trials of economic growth and development, the country must overcome some tough historical challenges and rethink its own image. Are we really the “country in permanent crisis” we seem to think we are? Or have we evolved? In these pages, the authors examine the main aspects that define a developing modern society: education, security, employment, legality, the relationship between the ruling class and civil society, etc., and they point out specific areas where change is possible. Regreso al futuro constitutes an essential reflection on the power of a country on the verge of becoming a prosperous and democratic entity.
