From the cover: “Within days of his election, George Bush met with his Mexican counterpart, Carlos Salinas de Gortari. The urgent meeting, held even before the two men had been sworn in as their countries 'respective chief executives, reflected the leaders' anxiety that Mexico's simmering problems could soon make it the country that Americans will have to worry about most. This is a collection of stories — vivid, real-life stories about America’s unknown neighbour to the south. These are not the people encountered by the four million Americans who vacation in the escapist atmosphere of Mexico’s splendid escapist atmosphere of Mexico’s splendid beaches or magnificent archaeological ruins each year. These are the real Mexicans. The Mexicans is a guided tour through the mean streets and dusty byways of this most mysterious neighbour. It is a look into Mexico’s very soul.”
