“Mexico matters much more to the future of America than do Afghanistan or Iraq. Mexico is confronting a complex mix of challenges that will influence and, actually, change the United States. In the past few years, Mexico has emerged successfully from a profound recession, its government is confronting the drug cartels and its political system is far from consolidated. Because each of these challenges could constitute a direct threat to the U.S., it is important to understand what Mexico is and where the nation is going.”

--Luis Rubio, Mexico Matters: Change in Mexico and Its Impact Upon the United States
