Mexico, Bewildered and Contested

This blog covers Mexican politics, U.S.-Mexico relations, and Mexico’s place in the (licit and illicit) global economy. On the one hand, the blog is drawn to stories about guns, money, and the Mexican state (or at least two of the three). On the other hand, it is drawn to stories of civic resistance, everyday survival, and the possibilities of political transformation. Its major concerns are with the ubiquity of violence, the complexity of survival, and the opacity of rule in this perplexed and suffering country.
