About this product
- DescriptionMexico is a land torn between Latin America and the US, between its Indian and revolutionary past and the modern trappings of skyscrapers, cell phones, and factories. It is also one of the biggest tourist destinations in Latin America for the UK market. Mexico is w the key country in Latin American debates about trade integration, neo-liberalism, and the fight of indigeus people for automy and self-governance, best characterised by the Zapatista movement. A new updated edition of Mexico in Focus gives the insider's view - the 'story the guidebooks don't tell you' - in accessible, lively and accurate prose. It offers a fresh and contemporary perspective on the Zapatista rebellion and indigeus issues, as well as the July 2000 election of Vicente Fox, the cowboy president whose controversial policy suggestions have included free movement of labour and unrestricted immigration within NAFTA and the legalisation of drugs. This completely rewritten and updated text also touches on the ecomy, the new relationship under George W Bush, literature and culture, as well as a completely new section on Mexican popular culture forms and music, including televelas, comic books, and lucha libre , or popular wrestling. Mexico in Focus is published complete with new illustrations, updated maps and facts and figures, and an extended Where to Go and What to See Section - expert tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
