Description - Mexico in Transition by Gerardo Otero

This book is a rich source of evidence of what happens to the different sectors of an economy, its people, and natural resources, as neoliberal policies take hold. It covers the effects of globalization on peasants; the impact of neoliberalism on wages, trade unions, and specifically women workers; the emergence of new social movements El Barzon and the Zapatistas (EZLN); how the environment, especially biodiversity, has become a target for colonization by transnational corporations; the political issue of migration to the United States; and the complicated intersections of economic and political liberalization. It examines the specific impacts of the NAFTA Agreement. It also describes the diverse forms of resistance and challenge offered by civil society.
