First World Dreams: Mexico since 1989 (Global History of the Present) by Alexander S. Dawson

This accessible book looks at the last twenty years of Mexicos history. Under globalization, Mexico has opened its borders, reformed its political system, and transformed its economy. But Mexicos increasingly vibrant civil society is marred by Human Rights abuses and violent rebellion. First World Dreams shows how market reforms have produced a stable economy, regular economic growth, and some vast fortunes, but have devastated much of the country-side and crippled domestic producers. Today Mexico remains a nation in a perpetual state of becoming; becoming a democracy, becoming a nation that respects human rights, becoming a modern industrial power, and yet also becoming more violent, more fragmented, and becoming a place where the chasms between wealth and poverty grow ever larger.
