Abstract : The bilateral relationship between Mexico and the United States has been hard and complex during most of its history. The two countries have developed different patterns of society. One is rich; the other not. They have different models of social organization. They speak different languages, follow different customs. And they have distinct perspectives on the international stage. Thus it is common that frictions arise easily, especially on issues like the environment, immigration, and drugs, where perceptions on how to solve shared problems are different. In recent years, the dynamic of the world has been changing. A New World Order is requiring new forms of international relations. This study examines the past and present of the Mexican-U.S. relationship, the efforts that both countries had been making to build a better sense of comprehensive bilateral cooperation, and the factors that could permit the achievement of a closer and more open relationship.
