9781878367518: The Social Costs Of Industrial Growth in Northern Mexico (U.S.-MEXICO CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVES SERIES)

The growth of the maquiladora industries along the northern border of Mexico, or "maquilization" in the formulation of Kopinak (sociology, U. of Western Ontario, Canada), has brought with it a host of social problems. The 11 papers she presents examine these social costs and address means of reducing and offsetting them. They discuss gender and regional dynamics, issues of occupational and population health, maquiladoras and air pollution, and development and water issues. In looking for solution, contributors explore the roles of civil society organizations, unions, and social justice movements and the dynamics of resistance. Distributed in the US by Lynn Rienner Publishers. Annotation 2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
