Reviews

'...an insightful compilation...This book has many strengths that make it important to the literature of North American integration. In addition to adding an important topic to the discussion, it contributes by emphasizing the importance of society in policy design, technology transfer, sharing of solidarity values, understanding of societies, and development of multicultural sensibility through different mechanisms...Another of its strengths is intellectual honesty.' -Latin American Policy
