Item description for Mexico and the NAFTA Environment Debate: The Transnational Politics of Economic Integration by Barbara Hogenboom...

The book makes an important contribution to the discussion on the nature and impact of current processes of regionalization and globalization.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mexico and the NAFTA Environment Debate: The Transnational Politics of Economic Integration?

An Academic Perspective on NAFTA and the Environment  Jun 13, 2000
Coming from the Netherlands, Barbara Hogenboom has achieved a honest and relatively impartial review of how environmental issues were treated in the negotiations which led to the creation of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the North America Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC). Although her approach to the subject is obviously academic, in this work her writing makes use of a journalist style that should be accessible to most readers without a background in political studies.

Based on a review of relevant literature and interviews of participants both within and outside Mexico, Hogenboom's work provides insight not only on the development of NAFTA, but also into Mexican environmental policy-making in the early 1990s. Hogenboom digs behind alarmist headlines and reveals the subtle agendas of government policy-makers and the NAFTA negotiators. Hogenboom is also careful not to overstate the role of NAFTA in altering the Mexican government's approach to the environment. Instead, she paints the wider picture of environmental policy development occurring within Mexico including the centralized and authoritarian tendencies of Mexico's PRI government, the limited influence of the US government diplomacy and World Bank investments, and the slowly evolving role of Mexican environmental non-governmental organizations (eNGOs) in influencing government decision-making.

Hogenboom's strongest point is also her weakest. Hogenboom's work is well documented and is not given to the sort of mild alarmist statements of similar books written for activists rather than academics. It is refreshing to have a relatively impartial voice comment on the debate of NAFTA and the environment, yet her academic detachment can reach the point of causing the reader to lose interest. In short, do not expect this book to keep you awake on a long flight nor keep you sufficiently engaged to read it all in one siting.

Although this book is slowly becoming dated, it is still worth consulting should you have a passion for the Mexican environment, policy development, or a general curiosity into what happened during the secretive process leading to the creation of NAFTA. Should your interest be in the Mexican environment, I highly recommend that this is an excellent book to read alongside Joel Simon's "Endangered Mexico" and Lane Simonian's "Defending the Land of the Jaguar".
