A timely and illuminating study by one of this country's foremost experts on Mexico's economy and on U.S.-Mexican relations. As the populations of the two countries are by themselves becoming increasingly intertwined economically, demographically and culturally, Weintraub urges a policy of "managed integration" to allow each nation "to extract maximum advantage from the integration rather than futilely fighting it." Weintraub's grasp of economics and his sense of policy and policymaking are stronger than his empathy for Mexican politics, but the book's impressive strengths make it one of the best volumes available on this vital international relationship.
