This work describes the profound changes to Yucatán’s society and economy following the 1982 debt crisis that prostrated Mexico’s economy. The editors have assembled contributions from seasoned “Yucatecologists”—historians, geographers, cultural students, and an economist—to chart the accelerated change in Yucatán from a monocrop economy to a full beneficiary and victim of rampant globalization. 

Eric N. Baklanoff is Board of Visitors Research Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Alabama. He is the author of Agrarian Reform and Public Enterprise in Mexico: The Political Economy of Yucatán’s Henequen Industry, with Jeffery Brannon, among other works.
The late Edward H. Moseley was Professor Emeritus of History and Director, Capstone International Center, University of Alabama, where he was also a former Director of Latin American Studies. He was co-editor of Yucatán, A World Apart, with Edward D. Terry.

“This painstakingly researched volume engagingly details Yucatán’s evolving encounter with the multi-stranded process that is globalization. In the best tradition of scholarship on the region published herein, the collection works across several disciplines and is informed by analysis at different levels of the world system. In the process, it addresses the historical determinants of globalization, the diverse ways in which global processes are experienced in urban and rural contexts, and the dilemmas and opportunities that globalization portends for the region.”
—Gilbert M. Joseph, Farnam Professor of History and International Studies, Yale University
