Bibliographic information


"Imtiaz Hussain has produced one of the best works on NAFTA's accomplishments since inception and the challenges it faces going forward. Solidly grounded in theory and data, the book is a wealth of information on domestic politics, economic imperatives, and foreign policy interests of Mexico, Canada, and the United States. A must read for those interested in all things North American!" - Dr. Satya R. Pattnayak, Professor of Sociology and Political Science, Villanova University

'Hussain shows that NAFTA was more a success than failure on most of its goals, understanding that under NAFTA, freedom applied to capital, goods, services, and property rights, not to human rights of labor to move freely across borders or have positive freedom of access to what is necessary for human development.' - Russell Kleinbach, Professor Emeritus, Philadelphia University
