Mexico What Everyone Needs to Know (Paperback)
|Author: Roderic Ai Camp|
From the Publisher:
From devastating violence and drug cartels to immigration issues, an ailing economy, and environmental problems, there is no shortage of news stories or debates over current affairs in Mexico. The number of people living in extreme poverty in the country is reportedly increasing, while the drug violence has become a major international security issue. And while the nation has been undergoing a democratic consolidation since 2000, its tumultuous political history continues to cast a long shadow on the present situation.
In Mexico: What Everyone Needs to Know, Roderic Ai Camp will take readers through the myriad issues confronting Mexico domestically and internationally. Informed and contextualized by Camp's deep knowledge of Mexican political and cultural history, the book will address Mexican security and violence, economic and political development, its foreign relations with the United States, social development, and current cultural concerns.
