Abstract

The A. adopts a critical perspective on traditional notions of modernity and modernization. The idea of progress and development is actually full of paradoxes. He uses case study of the international agglomeration Ciudad Juárez and El Paso. He seeks to show that maquiladora managers play a powerful role in transmitting the modernization narrative. By producing and reproducing discourses of inhabitants and while attempting to prove that there is progress and development, managers recreate some of the problems they attempt to overcome
