Overview

The Politics of Telecommunications in Mexico: Privatization and State-Labour Relations, 1982-95 by Judith Clifton

Privatization and policies of economic liberalization were hailed by many critics as key factors which would help lead Mexico towards a process of deeper democratization at the beginning of the 1980s. This book details the single most important privitization both in financial and political terms, the privatization of TELMEX, Mexico's national telecommunications monopoly, and the realities of the so-called democratic "new unionism" movement led by the telephone workers' union.
