Summary This engaging and cogently argued book provides a uniquely broad and accessible analysis of Mexico's contemporary struggle for democratic development. Linking Mexico's evolution to Mexico-U.S. and other international considerations, Daniel C. Levy and Kathleen Bruhn, collaborating with Emilio Zebadua, offer rich perspectives from both sides of the border. They examine the relationship between democratization and economic change in an internationalized setting. Linking events of recent years -- including the most democratic presidential election in Mexican history and a peaceful change of party rule -- to pivotal episodes of Mexico's past, the authors focus on politics but also consider critical historical and economic dimensions.
Mexico: The Struggle for Democratic Development discusses a variety of issues ranging from electoral reform and accountability to drug trafficking and migration. With a foreword by Lorenzo Meyer, the book considers the rapidly changing role of Mexico's mass and elite groups, as well as the media, the military, the Church, and influential U.S. institutions. An analysis of the consequences of Nafta brings this stimulating and informative study up to the present.
