This course introduces students to the study of Mexican politics and government from an interdisciplinary perspective. The course focuses on the development and presentation of contemporary United States of Mexico. For a better understanding, it starts with a historical overview of the last two centuries. After that, present Mexico is described along with its problems and its promises. We are going to analyze the country from four different perspectives: politics, economy, society and foreign relations. Emphasis will be given to the ties with its northern neighbor the United States of America, as there are present many mutual problems like emigration, drugs, and economic cooperation under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The end of the course will be dedicated to the future perspective of Mexico. Students will also take part in these final remarks as they present their projects in the final class. These papers have to be about one current Mexican problem and its future development.
