Item description for Mexico en la frontera del caos (Spanish Edition) by Andres Oppenheimer...

Exclusive interviews with key political figures in Mexicoformer presidents Zedillo and Salinas, and guerrilla leader Marcosare the basis of this study that untangles the complex influences that have shaped Mexico over the past 20 years. From the Zapatistas to electoral fraud, this well-researched history accounts for many parts of Mexican politics and economies that have remained obscured by official silence. Beyond recurring catastrophes, however, this journalist finds the seed of a modern democracy in Vicente Fox's presidency, analyzed in a prologue added for this revised edition.
