In this book the author, a former Mexican foreign minister sheds light on the puzzling paradoxes of politics and culture of modern Mexico. Here is a nation of 110 million that has an ambivalent and complicated with the United States yet is host to more American expatriates than any country in the world. Its people tend to resent foreigners yet have made the nation a popular tourist destination. Mexican individualism and individual ties to the land reflect a desire to conserve the past and slow the route to uncertain modernity. The author also examines the future possibilities for Mexico as it becomes more diverse in its regional identities, socially more homogenous, its character and culture the instruments of change rather than sources of stagnation, its political system more open and democratic. This work is a portrait of a nation at a crossroads.
