It provides a current, well-informed, and solidly grounded Mexican perspective on Mexican immigration to the U.S. Topics addressed include the current generation of immigrants, why they have chosen to move to the U.S., where they work, their ultimate goals, and possible ways to address the multiple concerns about the continuing immigration of Mexicans to the U.S+-+981630040611709ocn018415849book19880.33Pastor, Robert ALimits to friendship : the United States and MexicoA discussion of the issues and problems separating Mexico and the United States+-+6890724215105318ocn027034299book19930.47Castañeda, Jorge GUtopia unarmed : the Latin American left after the Cold WarHistoryWith the collapse of Soviet communism, the Latin American left, whether in or out of power, faces challenges that will inevitably affect the United States' involvement in the region. In this searching and insightful analysis, the Mexican political scientist Jorge Castaneda shows why hostility and misunderstanding between the left and the United States have endured since the 1920s, and why we have never fully understood or adequately dealt with the vast region to the south. In the past, Soviet-oriented Communist parties throughout the hemisphere have blamed every evil on the United States. But not once, claims Castaneda, has the Latin left proved capable of solving its dilemma of how to carry out revolution or lasting reforms without incurring the wrath of Washington. Castaneda examines the strengths and weaknesses of Fidel Castro, Cuauhtemoc Cardenas, the Peronists, Lula and the PT in Brazil, the Sandinistas, the Shining Path, and other representatives of the left. Rich in incident and revealing anecdotes and portraits, Utopia Unarmed describes the clashing interests, distrust, and insensitivity that have mailed the conflict between the two continents, and that in their repetitive nature would seem comical were it not for their tragic outcomes. Finally, the book outlines the dramatic changes that are taking place today in Latin America which are likely to produce a modern, mature, and truly imaginative relationship with the United States that has been absent in the past+-+1696024215102112ocn032746772book19950.31Castañeda, Jorge GThe Mexican shock : its meaning for the United StatesIn his extraordinarily timely new book, Castaneda focuses in on Mexico, a country whose fate is increasingly entwined with that of the United States. In Castaneda's view, Mexico is still a society about which too little is known and too much is proposed. Americans have been unsure how to interpret the enormous changes that are taking place in today's Mexico - and affecting today's United States - from the Chiapas rebellion of 1994 to the current economic crisis. Castaneda examines the key issues in Mexican life: the impact of emigration, the relationship between politics and economics, and the enormous cultural changes taking place as Mexico moves closer to the United States. He also explores the United States' changing perceptions of Mexico and the basic historic and cultural outlooks that still divide the two countries. Finally, he examines the campaign behind Proposition 187 in California, discussing the dangerous mix of ignorance and bias that has formed so much of America's reaction to Mexico+-+176893010610099ocn690086250book20100.24Castañeda, Jorge GMañana forever? : Mexico and the MexicansThis book is a portrait of a nation at a crossroads. It examines the history and national characteristics of modern Mexico, discussing the contradictions of its politics, its complicated relationship with the United States, and its possible future direction. Why are Mexicans so successful in individual sports, but deficient in team play? Why do Mexicans dislike living in skyscrapers? Why do Mexicans love to see themselves as victims, but also love victims? And why, though the Mexican people traditionally avoid conflict, is there so much violence in a country where many leaders have died by assassination? In this book, the author a scholar and former foreign minister sheds much light on the puzzling paradoxes of his native country. Here is a nation of 110 million that has an ambivalent and complicated relationship 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 hugely 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+-+09795902853247236ocn044131840book20000.47Castañeda, Jorge GPerpetuating power : how Mexican presidents were chosenHistory"In Perpetuating Power, Jorge Castaneda illuminates the mystifying workings of power in Mexico, taking readers on a guided tour through the maze that leads to the Mexican presidential palace."--Jacket+-+31619301063668ocn182779413book20080.73Castañeda, Jorge GLeftovers : tales of the Latin American left"Over a decade ago, Jorge Castaneda wrote the classic Utopia Unarmed, which offered a penetrating and comprehensive account of the Latin American left's fate at the end of the Cold War. Since then, the left across Latin America has travelled in paths no one could have predicted. Latin American nations from Mexico to Argentina wavered for years between leftism and American-supported neoliberalism, but in recent years the left has experienced a tremendous resurgence throughout the region. However, the left is not unified, and as Castaneda, Morales, and their contributors show, it has followed two distinct paths - a more cosmopolitan style leftism, exemplified by Brazil and Chile, and a left fuelled by populist nationalism that has clear debts to Peron or Cardenas, and is most evident in Venezuela, Mexico's PRD, Bolivia, and Argentina. Leftovers comprehensively updates this very important story, with country and area specialists contributing."--Jacket+-+98217485753243272ocn037729110book19970.19Castañeda, Jorge GCompañero : vida y muerte del Che GuevaraBiographyTraces the life of the Latin American communist revolutionary from his youth, to his relationship with Fidel Castro, to his untimely demise+-+26163242152025ocn491949096book20090.20Aguilar, RubénEl narco : la guerra fallidaExamines the drug trade in Mexico and the violence which it brings, the role of the United States, and the part played by the Mexican government and Mexican society, and suggests ways for Mexico to handle the problem internally+-+506856625119811ocn041660222book19990.53Castañeda, Jorge GLa herencia : arqueología de la sucesión presidencial en MéxicoHistoryThrough revealing interviews with the last four presidents of Mexico, the author exposes the secret of how presidents are chosen.
