Issues of crime, especially celebrity kidnapping and corruption, as challenges to governability of Mexico today. Discussion of the monumental presidential election of 2000 and the administration of Vicente Fox. Discussion of cultural convergence at the community level in today's border region.MacLachlan, Colin M. is the author of 'El Gran Pueblo A History of Greater Mexico', published 2003 under ISBN 9780131841147 and ISBN 0131841149.
