Editorial Reviews

Review

In the early 1980s, nearly a quarter of Monterrey, Mexico's three million inhabitants did not have running water in their homes while heavy industry (steel, iron, chemical, and paper works) were major users of water in their production processes. Vivienne Bennett unravels the politics of water in Monterrey by examining the water services themselves (what was built, when, why, and who paid), by revealing the response of poor women to the water crisis, and by considering the dynamics of panning water services for the city (especially the changing roles of the private sector and the government in investment and management). The Politics Of Water: Urban Protest, Gender, and Power in Monterrey, Mexico makes a significant contribution to the merging scholarship on regional politics in Mexico. With the coming of NAFTA, what happens in the various regions of Mexico can have profound effects on the United States. The Politics Of Water is a masterpiece of scholarship and research with much to disabuse the mistaken notion that Mexico is a uniform monolith. -- Midwest Book Review
