This work is a study of the impacts of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). By focusing on the issue of justice in the contexts of globalization and neo-colonialism, the book contributes to a broader discussion of the significance of NAFTA. Authors Laurence French and Magdaleno Manzanarez emphasize cultural and ethnic issues in the relations of NAFTA partners and enrich treatment of the topic by bringing to bear sociology, political science, justice studies, psychology, and educational theory. The authors relate classical sociological theory to contemporary issues of social and criminal justice.

While much of the literature on NAFTA overlooks its social implications, French and Manzanarez examine NAFTA from the perspective of the long-excluded indigenous populations of the Americans, presenting a critical analysis of the treaty's negative impact on criminal, human, and social justice issues....Dealing with the rise and fall of the Mexican revolution, social and economic justice, and comparative educational systems, the book properly places the question of justice within the broader context of neocolonialism and globalization.... Summing Up: RECOMMENDED. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. -- M.E. Carranza, Texas A&M University?Kingsville * CHOICE *
In the digital age, scholars wrestle with the evolving relationship of justice to the new globalism. French and Manzanarez's treatise is an important addition to the critical study of that relationship. The authors leap into the vortex where politics, culture, and economics collide. They emerge to suggest that classism, ethnocentrism, and inequality are still the driving forces of North American affairs. Agree or not, French and Manzanarez's treatise is provocative reading. Historically based and forcibly argued, it contributes mightily to our understanding of twenty-first century justice in the hemisphere we hold in common. -- John T. Kirkpatrick, Associate Dean, University of New Hampshire and Director, Justiceworks
