From School Library Journal:

YA-- A brief history of Mexico from 1820 forward as a background to understanding the problems and pressures that have been crucial over the last 30 years, particularly to border states. By focusing on the internal political scene, including the growing wealth of the upper classes as opposed to the exponential growth and misery of the lower class, Langley shows a situation that is literally spilling over into the United States in the form of undocumented workers. Included is a revealing look at how the Carter and Reagan administrations responded to diplomacy with Mexico on both public and private levels. The indisputable conclusion Langley draws is that the future of the two countries is bound together. --Barbara Weathers, Duchesne Academy, Houston, TX

From Library Journal:

Langley, author of the excellent Mex -America: Two Countries, One Future ( LJ 7/88), tries his hand at a general survey of U.S.-Mexican relations in the 20th century. The strengths of this brief overview include an understanding of the border culture, North American cultural perceptions in explaining the relationship, and textual clarity. However, as a historical survey, Langley offers insufficient insights on recent events and repeats cliches about the National Action Party (PAN). Recommended as a useful introductory complement to such books as Sidney Weintraub's A Marriage of Convenience ( LJ 11/15/89).
