9780060011307: The Mexicans: A Personal Portrait of a People
From the Author:

If you're going to Mexico, this is a readable survival guide
I've received many appreciative letters from readers who tucked my book into suitcases or knapsacks as they headed south to a land they did not know. I don't tell people which hotel to stay in or how much a meal will cost, but if you are interested in getting beyond the surface reality of resorts such as Cancun or Puerto Vallarta, my 20 stories of representatives Mexicans will tell you a bit about what makes Mexicans tick and why you should care even if you never visit Mexico.

Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Mexicans is a multifaceted portrait of the complex, increasingly turbulent neighbor to our south. It is the story of a country in crisis -- poverty, class tensions, political corruption -- as told through stories of individuals. From Augustin, an honest cop, we learn that many in the Mexican police force use torture as their number-one-crime-solving technique; from Julio Scherer Garcia, a leading newspaper editor, we learn how kidnapping and intimidating phone calls stifle people despite his meager income; we hear from a homosexual teacher wary of bigotry in a land of machismo; and many others. Moving from Mexico City discos to remote Indian towns, Patrick Oster tells of Mexicans whose lives reveal something vital about Mexico, and in doing so, helps to understand why many decide to risk their lives in order to have the opportunity to live in the United States.
