It sets forth the basic rules and legal doctrines, surveys the key institutions that make and enforce the law in Mexico, and places them in their cultural context. It makes frequent comparisons to United States legal doctrines and institutions, and provides a foundation for understanding the role of law and legal institutions in shaping public and private life in Mexico."--BOOK JACKET
