Mexico’s New President

CAMBRIDGE: With Vincente Fox assuming Mexico’s Presidency on December 1, Mexico celebrates much more than a simple leadership transition. For the first time in its history, Mexico is on the verge of four simultaneous accomplishments: real democracy, economic prosperity, social cohesion, and good relations with the United States. Mexico’s mood is palpable: high expectations that the country will escape its past demons - instability, corruption, and massive social divisions - to become a dynamic society built upon strong, distinctive cultures, social inclusion, and a growing role in the world.
