Book News Annotation:

Motivated in part by 20 years of traveling, studying and teaching in Mexico, and marrying into a Mexican family, Morris (international studies and political science, U. of South Alabama) explores contemporary Mexico, the future of Mexican-U.S. relations, and the dynamics of nationalism amid globalization. Coverage includes identifying and understanding Mexican images of the U.S. during the contemporary period, i.e. the age of NAFTA; how these images contribute to Mexican identity and perceptions of national interest; whether Mexican perceptions of the U.S. are changing in the current period, and if so, how these changes are altering previous conceptions or meanings of the nation and of being Mexican.

Synopsis:

Mexico's views of the United States have been characterized as stridently anti-American, but recent policy changes in Mexico mark a fundamental transformation in the relationship. This thoughtful and original work answers questions about the impact of these policy shifts on Mexican nationalism and perceptions of the United States. As the only developing country to have entered into a free trade agreement (NAFTA) with a developed country, Mexico offers a unique and invaluable case study of the impact of globalization on a nation and its national identity. Exploring Mexico's experience also allows us to consider how other countries perceive the United States, especially in the post-9/11 climate. Analyzing the diversity of Mexican views of the United States, Gringolandia contributes a rich and nuanced dimension to our understanding of contemporary Mexico and Mexicans' feelings about the vital cross-border relationship.
