Abstract:

Trade issues rank among the most important topics in international relations. Two characteristics of the international system provide the basis for the increased bargaining power of small states the internationalization of production and the strategic value of the smaller states to the major power. This paper examines the process by which Mexican tomato producers and their government utilized both bargaining chips to successfully resist U.S. restriction on tomato imports in 1969 and again in 1979.
