Don't Disturb the Neighbors: The United States and Democracy in Mexico, 1980-1995

Synopsis

Offering often surprising insights into US foreign policy, this book is the first comprehensive analysis of public statements and actions regarding democracy in Mexico. Spanning the years from the Central American crisis of the Reagan administration through the 1995 Mexican peso crisis, Mazza uses revealing interviews with many of the leading US policy officials to probe beneath the surface of U.S. foreign policy and question the set of aging, unexamined assumptions under which it operates.
