"Excellent study of the origins of Mexico's rapid industrialization development program and how it went astray. Emphasis is on how wartime cooperation led to unprecedented levels of US influence on the economy and investment after the war. A blend of war, industrialization, domestic conservatism, and US pressure shifted the Revolution to the right"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
