    For anyone who loves Mexico and wants to peek inside the country's psyche from a political and social slant, this book was recommended to me by the Globe and Mail's former Latin America bureau chief as a MUST READ before I moved down. Written by the Miami Herald's LatAm bureau head, Oppenheimer works behind-the-scenes angles to what triggered the 1990 fall of the peso and how the Zapatista revolution was the boiling point that started the landslide.

    Although I am not a fan of everything Oppenheimer writes, I thought this book was great. It is perfect for a crash course in Mexican Politics. He weaves together a variety of social, economic and political aspects with many details and a sense of humor. I especially liked the information on Subcommandante Marcos and how NAFTA has affected many Mexicans.

    I loved it! Read it for a class about Mexican politics. The style is much like journalism... bubbly and exciting. Full of first hand facts. I wonder how much of it is biased though, or how much bits of truth had to be modified, hidden, etc. because big politicians are mentioned. And in Mexico you are dead if you make their shit public. Historical value...???

    More than the view of a reporter or a journalist, it is the modern photography of the Psychology of the Mexican population.

    Still worth reading twenty years after publication. Would love to know what he now thinks of Mexico's struggle toward democracy. Still worth reading twenty years after publication. Would love to know what he now thinks of Mexico's struggle toward democracy.

    Latin America is probably known for its picturesque views and culture, but it is definitely famous for its drugs and cyclical debt crisis. The LatinAm country discussed here is Mexico and the political conditions presaging its currency crisis of 1994.

In the end, as the peso declined, America and the IMF had to lead one of the biggest rescues in global history by pumping in over $50Bn into the country.

    10/5 Probably one of the best books I've ever read. Every Mexican should read it. It shows the reality of our country. Every person should read it too, regardless of your nationality. This is a history book in a form of a story with information that history books do not show you. ever. 10/5 Probably one of the best books I've ever read. Every Mexican should read it.

    Excelente. Indispensable crónica de los 90s en México. Primer libro en meses que leo de a cinco o seis horas al día, en las plazas de Mérida. La única falla es su teoría sobre el asesinato de Ruiz Massieu, pone todas las piezas del rompecabezas, pero se va con una solución no muy creíble. Impactante descripci{on de la escena guerrillera en México en los 70s, que pocos autores tocan. flag 1 like · Like  · see review Feb 07, 2013 Danny Guzmán rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition Una visión profunda en un lenguaje sencillo para cualquier interesado en el clima político de las elecciones de 1994 en México.
