Mexico: Political, Social and Economic Evolution

by Nora Hamilton

Mexico: Political, Social, and Economic Evolution provides a compelling overview of the profound changes that have taken place within Mexico over the past twenty-five years. Offering a multifaceted take on the evolution of contemporary Mexico, the text analyzes the relationship between Mexico's past and present; the connections between its economic, political, and social trajectories; and the interaction between domestic and international forces.


* Opens with a broad historical overview of Mexico and closes with a discussion of the challenges facing Mexico today

* Examines different social and institutional actors--policy makers, business groups, social organizations, grassroots movements, guerrilla organizations, workers, indigenous groups, transnational corporations and migrants--how they interact with one another and how they have directly or indirectly influenced changes in Mexico 

* Draws material from a rich variety of sources, including extensive research in Mexico and interviews with Mexican and U.S. scholars

* Incorporates diverse theoretical perspectives in its discussion of many issues (democracy and democratic transition, modernization and development, social movements, civil society and international migration)
