Andres Oppenheimer 's "Bordering on Chaos " gives Mexico watchers, professional and amateur alike, a revealing look at the secret and powerful political society of Mexico, its breakup and the fallout that we are witnessing today. . . . Mr. Oppenheimer not only succeeds in building a framework to help us understand the social, political and economic workings of the country, he also puts a human face on it. . . Even in light of the tragedy of 1994 and 1995, Mr. Oppenheimer finds some hope for Mexico -- mind you, nothing overly optimistic. Primarily through the development of a more fair political system, where opposition parties are gaining momentum (most notably the National Action Party, or PAN), the country is "fighting its way to modernity, inch by inch." -- Wall Street Journal
