Buy book: $18.00

The story of Mexico's political rebirth, by two Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters, "Opening Mexico" is a narrative history of the citizens' movement which dismantled the kleptocratic one-party state that dominated Mexico in the 20th century, and replaced it with a lively democracy.

It's very hard to keep up with current events but it's great to have this service that let's us know what is happening in Europe as well as with our neighbors to the south. I have seen Fox's name in the news but had no idea of what it took to get him there. Thanks for bringing us these great reads, even tho I seldom get to read more than this weeks portion I appreciate even a little knowledge that it brings.

I remember when I was in Mexico one afternoon of the elections, and it is umbelievable how patriotic Mexican people are! It is in fact important to know that no matter what people complain about, a vote does always make the difference.I did not know that Fox had that big of a victory!

A smart intellegent read. Great background information about our southern neighbor. The continued struggle for a voice in the government is well written with fully developed and sympathetic characters. I was brought into their living room in the first few pages and felt the worry and energy. Great writing.
