Abstract

In the past two decades Mexico has experienced rapid globalization, especially through economic integration with the United States. Mass attitudes have remained proudly Mexican and have become more focused on the nation, at the expense of more local identities. Many Mexicans, especially those more likely to benefit from economic integration, would consider some surrender of sovereignty, while others fear the loss of cultural identity due to the forces of globalization.
