The great divide : the challenge of U.S.-Mexico relations in the 1990s by Tom Barry( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Divide is an in-depth examination of the longest boundary dividing the industrialized from the developing world: the almost two-thousand-mile border between Mexico and the United States. Relations between these countries have always been volatile, characterized by prejudice, imperialism, and violence, and only recently by cooperation and mutual dependence. This precarious harmony is further threatened by the North American Free Trade Agreement, which promises to change permanently the nature of the line. Bound as the two countries are by trade, debt, immigration, and the drug war, the economic and social changes they face play out most visibly along the border. Every day, some eight thousand people risk their lives to cross illegally into the United States through the borderlands; two thousand maquiladora factories littered across the borderlands employ more than half a million Mexicans and yet regularly flout the U.S.'s labor and environmental laws; half the cocaine and three-quarters of the marijuana smuggled into the U.S. come through the borderlands; and the pollution in the area is so bad that a section of the Nogales Wash, a borderlands river, recently exploded. The Great Divide is essential reading for anyone interested in NAFTA, in the future of the U.S. and Mexico, and in their potential for cooperation

Zapata's revenge : free trade and the farm crisis in Mexico by Tom Barry( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Visions of a modernized and industrialized Mexico competing in the global market clash with the sobering reality of a desperate peasantry and falling agricultural production. The crisis and rebellion in Chiapas is the same one confronting most of Mexico and the Third World. Tom Barry views the crisis that confronts Mexico as alarming evidence of the incapacity of neoliberal and free trade policies to foster broad economic development. Barry shows that such policies have resulted in reduced food security, environmental destruction, increased rural-urban polarization, depopulation of peasant communities, and social and political instability

Global focus : U.S. foreign policy at the turn of the millennium( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Global Focus offers a critique of current U.S. foreign policy through a series of original essays by progressive scholars. This second biannual volume portrays the challenges and questions facing Americans and their government at a time when a new global order is being defined by transnational corporations, when the dimensions of U.S. military power bear little relation to threats, and when most global crises call for international solutions. The volume outlines the principles, practice, and policy alternatives that would help to make the United states a more responsible global leader and global partner. Its provocative chapters, comprehensive charts and figures, and topical short essays make it a key reference book for foreign policy analysts and advocates, policymakers and academics."--Jacket

Border wars by Tom Barry( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tea Party and its allies celebrate the rogue states of the Southwest as a model for the nation in their go-it-alone posturing and tough immigration-enforcement talk. In Border Wars, dogged investigative journalist Tom Barry documents the costs of that model: lives lost; families torn apart; billions of wasted tax dollars; vigilantes prowling the desert; and fiscal crises in cities, counties, and states. Even worse, he warns, the entire nation risks following their lead. As Barry explains, the lack of coherent federal policy on immigration and drug war conduct and the uncritical embrace of all things in the name of national security has opened doors for opportunists from boardrooms to governor's offices in Texas and Arizona. Corporate-prison magnates eagerly swallow up undocumented immigrants into taxpayer-funded dungeons, border sheriffs and politicians trade on voters' fears of Latinos and 'big government,' and pro-business policy institutes and lobbyists battle the public interest. Border Wars offers a stark portrait of the domestic cost of failed federal leadership in the post-9/11 era."--Publisher's description
