9780742553354: The U.S.-Mexican Border into the Twenty-First Century (Latin American Silhouettes)

Systematically exploring the dynamic interface between Mexico and the United States, this comprehensive survey considers the historical development, current politics, society, economy, and daily life of the border region. Now fully updated and revised, the book traces the economic cycles and social movements from the 1880s through the beginning of the twenty-first century that created the modern border region, showing how the border shares characteristics of both nations while maintaining an internal coherence that transcends its divisive international boundary. The authors conclude with an in-depth analysis of the key issues of the contemporary borderlands: industrial development and maquiladoras, the North American Free Trade Agreement, rapid urbanization, border culture, demographic and migration issues, the environmental crisis, the border Native Americans, U.S. and Mexican cooperation and conflict at the border, drug trafficking, and the security crisis brought by the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. They also place the border in its global context, examining it as a region caught between the developed and developing world and highlighting the continued importance of borders in a rapidly globalizing world. Richly illustrated with photographs and maps and enhanced by up-to-date and accessible statistical tables, this book will be an invaluable resource for all those interested in borderlands and U.S.-Mexican relations.

Review:

Praise for the first edition: An excellent synthesis. This book fulfills its purpose well. -MultiCultural Review [This] brief but comprehensive survey emphasizes economic, social, and demographic changes along the U.S.-Mexican border. -CHOICE A most welcome addition to the literature on the U.S.-Mexico borderlands . . . Presents an outstanding survey of the historical forces, processes, and events that have produced the transnational economy and society for which the region is so well known. Because of its clarity, conciseness, coverage of salient themes, and wonderful photographs, this book will prove extremely useful in the classroom. At the same time its contents will appeal to specialists and general readers. -Oscar J. Martínez, University of Arizona A major interpretation of one of the world's most intriguing areas?the U.S.-Mexico border, la frontera. To date, the very best single synthesis of the salient themes and issues of the twentieth-century border. -DavidMaciel, California State University, Dominguez Hills A well-organized and highly readable study of the border as a frontier, an international boundary, and a region [that] takes a complex subject and makes it understandable, even for those with littl

The range of topics and the breadth of the time period covered are well conceived. [The book] clearly demonstrates the accuracy of [the] observation that the reality of the border is far more interesting than popular myths and stereotypes suggest. -Don M. Coerver, Texas Christian University An excellent, comprehensive treatment of the recent history of the U.S.-Mexican border area, [this book] explains the important social, political, and economic developments in the region in a clear and accessible manner. -Linda Hall, University of New Mexico
