In this book, scholars from throughout North America analyze the North American integration process taking place under NAFTA. While NAFTA was originally conceived as a trade agreement only, the contributors argue, there are many other important issues raised by the agreement that are not being adequately addressed, including drug-trafficking, endangered species trafficking, labor mobility, and energy. The book also includes discussions of cultural issues such as education, Quebec's cultural uniqueness, and California's Proposition 187.
