Shannon K. O'Neil spoke about her book,Two Nations Indivisible: Mexico, the United States, and the Road Ahead, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, April 4, 2013.

The Mexico most Americans think they know—riddled with drug-related violence and funneling undocumented immigrants north—is only part of the story. O’Neil, senior fellow for Latin American studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, shows that the other part is a more prosperous and democratic nation, with a growing, better educated, and more stable middle class.
