This reference guide to the laws and legal literature of Mexico has been designed carefully by a reference librarian for researchers who do not read or speak Spanish. This basic sourcebook provides answers to the questions that are asked most frequently: Which is the relevant code? Where can the text of the code be found? What secondary material is available? Which material is available in English? This up-to-date guide should be useful as a reference in college, university, law, government, and public libraries and in companies that do business with Mexico. It could also be used in courses dealing with Mexican law and business. An introduction briefly describes Mexico's legal system and provides some historical background. Then the bibliography points to primary and secondary material of importance and is annotated partially. Entries are organized under forty-one subject categories with subdivisions pointing to the laws, the sources for the text of the laws, secondary materials from periodicals, and books and monographs. All Spanish titles are given first in Spanish and then in English. An appendix gives a directory of publishers. Author and subject indexes are included.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Avalos (University of Arizona) provides a comprehensive view of the Mexican legal system at a time of increased interest generated by discussion of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The 41 chapters present federal laws by subject and are each divided into four subsections that give official names of laws, sources for their text, and lists of periodical articles and monographic treatments on each subject. The sections on environmental, corporation, and foreign investment laws are pertinent to current research on international trade. .... Most useful in graduate level research, but also recommended for undergraduate libraries because of its timely nature and inclusion of secondary and English-language material."-Choice
"Recommended for academic and large public libraries."-ARBA
